oh yeah

Justin K., Newegg
11 January 2015
  • Summary: Just get this headset and call it a year or 3
  • Pros: only had it for a week. Either way this is THE headset!!! Won't ever get a different headset unless this one is discontinued or the Logitech's drop price. This headset is amazing and the software is phenomenal. I do not write reviews like this. A+
  • Cons: ok cons... hmmm...... Well my only con would be that the red strip doesn't light up! Maybe that's only with the wireless ones. Why do i care? i don't. Literally the only con i can think of.. the cord looked flimsy and cheap, but in reality the cord is very, very sturdy.

Great

Alek B., Newegg

  • Summary: You can use a 3rd party equalizer on Linux or Mac such as the one built into VLC or another to help improve the audio quality. But it won't be 7.1!
  • Pros: - Very comfortable around your ears - Powerful and very clear sound - Very well made; Your ears can actually breathe! - Long cable - Comes with controls built in(Some require the software to work properly)
  • Cons: - Requires Windows only software to take advantage of the headset; Which the software included on CD has compatibility problems with Windows 8, and at the time even the Windows 8 version on their website seems to have some problems as well. It seems to me as the developers are rather careless.

Great headset

Andres L., Newegg
23 August 2014
  • Summary: I would definately recommend this to anybody else.
  • Pros: The headset is fairly light. The audio you hear is very clear as well as what you produce with the microphone. The software needed is extremely easy to install. I had never hear 7.1 surround and the audio from it was amazing. The price is really good for what you are getting.
  • Cons: The headset is pretty tight and can cause some headaches (I assume it needs to be worn out). I have big ears and I found the cuffs squeezing them and even not covering all my ear. If you are someone with ear gauges, you may find it a bit discomforting. I was unable to use it in a 3.0 USB port wit...

Very disapointed.

Sebastien W., Newegg
22 August 2014
  • Summary: The headset is pretty nice, well built. If it wouldn't be of the problems mentioned before would be a 5 egg.
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: Directly out of the box, the headset was making a weird noise like "shhhhhhhhhhh". Also, the sound cuts for 2-3 seconds then come back. Very stupid and annoying. I love Plantronics gear but this time i'm having a hard time with that headset. Very disapointed. I requested a RMA but paying 30$ ship...

Quite nice!

BRIAN W., Newegg
7 August 2014
  • Pros: I'm quite pleased with these headphones! I come from using a $200 pair of headphones, with a headphone amp, and a $150 sound card, and obviously these cannot compare in terms of sound quality. But, my old headphones had the cushioning peeling off and the cord worn down, the amp is over 7 years ol...
  • Cons: The folding feature of these microphones is a joke. It doesn't conserve any space, and puts everything in a worse position where they can get broken or the speaker crushed! Thankfully I don't plan on travelling with these, and if I do they're cheap enough that I won't care or I'll just wear them ...
