Cons: for normal speech this is absolutely all you'll ever need... But for lets plays it does kinda start scratching if you start yelling... If you're doing lets plays and have the extra money... Go for a better mic, if its for just gaming in general, get it...
Pros: I'm no audiophile, but I do not detect any sound problems with either input or output. The volume knob is smooth and does not cause static. The headset is comfortable and the microphone boom is stiff (will not fall down from horizontal position.
Cons: The microphone mute switch is difficult to engage/disengage. I don't use it. however, because I always use push-to-talk.
Cons: The headset started acting funny after about a month of use (I take good care of this thing, make sure to not do anything that might damage it). It started playing buzzing sounds through the speakers whenever I played a game, and has gotten consistently worse. Sometimes I cannot hear the game over the buzzing. When I try to talk to my friends through teamspeak or skype, they claim to only hear deafening static coming from me. When I do mic tests, the mic does not pick...
Summary: had this headset for a couple of months now and I'm very happy with it. previously had the gamecom 367 headset that the rigid plastic finally broke, but liked it overall. so I decided to upgrade to the 380 due to it's more durable construction materials. very comfortable for long hours of gameplay, mic works well, sound is great but don't expect it to be comparable to high end headsets that cost hundreds of dollars but it was better than I was expecting and for the price...
Summary: I am addicted to headphones. I am not a tech guru, but I enjoy the feel of a good set of headphones or ear buds. My Sennheiser's have the weight I like. It doesn't feel like they are going to fall off ( Sennheiser RS120 926 MHz Wireless RF Headphones with Charging Cradle ). This Plantronics is super light in comparison. I thought it would be a negative, but they are really comfortable. With a very nice fabric, they surround the ears without creating pressure points.
Summary: The good: These are fully enclosed headphones, so they fit over the whole ear. The padding is a velvet-like material, so they are actually very comfortable to wear. The microphone boom swings up and out of the way when not in use. The OK: This stereo headset is not USB compatible -- it uses two 1/8" plugs, one for the mic and one for the headphones. If you can find which holes on your PC are for mic and headphones, you're good to go.

Summary: This Plantronics gaming headset is a relatively comfortable headset with decent, not great, sound. The adjustable headset fits large to medium size heads -- I have to wear them at their most collapsed, which means that kids who want a gaming headset may find theirs falling off their heads, not something they'll want when gaming. For others, they will stay firmly on the head, thanks in part to the square foam headsets/speakers that trap ears pretty securely.
