Summary: The mic DOES bend, you just have to be a little forceful with it. As for tweaking the headset, play some music and mess with your EQ settings until you feel it's set up right. (I'd play a game too just so you know it's not just music that sounds well)
Pros: *Sits on my head comfortably *Sound quality is good(Must be tweaked in an EQ) *Mic quality is astounding
Cons: *The headset needs tweaking in an EQ to make everything sound right *The mic is awkward to bend
Summary: I took an egg from my previous review as I couldn't update the old one. The headset is very uncomfortable especially after a few hours. The mic picks up everything, not clearly but as a high pitched squeaking sound or is too low without mic boost.
Pros: Still sounds better than I would imagine
Cons: Very uncomfortable, The sound adjustment button on the headset is too sensitive. The mic isn't a noise cancelling headset.
Summary: I haven't had time to properly test these but games, music and movies sound decent and that's coming from the integrated sound card. While I don't love the comfort (coming from a corsair vengeance 1500) This is a steal at $50 hopefully they hold up over time and they break in well.
Pros: The sound and mic quality is impressive especially for the price. Material feels solid if that's any indication of build quality.
Cons: The comfort level isn't that great. the ear cups are a little small and the headset itself is a little tight; granted it is new and they haven't been broken in yet.
Summary: I bought it for my brother , but it is me who benefits. Now we can game and skype without all of the background noise and static that I would get with him by him using his phone on speaker phone. Worth every penny!
Pros: This headset is very tactual, two buttons on the left headset cup and the microphone is on the same side! The cylinder stiel button is for the volume and the microphone is the slide stile button the headset ear cups are square makes it retro looking! The ear cups are big with nice fome ear cushio...
Summary: As I said, this is great for casual gaming, it doesn't have positional sound )5.1/7.1) but its only a 40$ headset, so its great for how much it is. But if you're into video making where your voice is involved... and you want high production value videos...
Pros: Sound quality is great! Microphone is a step up from anything I've used prior Its been through hell, I've smashed the cord in drawer accidentally many times!
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...
Summary: I've owned a few different brands of headsets in the past. My last pair was Plantronics that lasted me 4 years and still work. I just wanted an upgrade. These have great quality 40mm speakers. I also use them to listen to music paired with a Asus Xonar DX.
Pros: Great Sound, Great build quality, No USB, Great Microphone!
Cons: Cord could be longer but not a really big con for me.
Summary: My girlfriend bought these for me for $winter_holiday 2012 . I've owned them for about four months and they are nothing short of amazing. I've used several different headsets in the past and these are simply the best.
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 ove...
