Decent quality but poor build

Nathan K., Newegg
28 January 2015
  • Summary: The sound quality isn't superb, and neither is the mic. But both are perfectly adequate for anything I did (movies, games, business). For the price I would buy again if it wasn't for my experience with the poor construction.
  • Pros: Comfortable, on-headset volume control and Dolby toggle button. Decent audio and mic quality.
  • Cons: The build construction is rather poor (plastic is weak). I have bought two sets of these in the past. The first set lasted 3 months before the plastic over-head clip broke just above the left ear. Figuring I was being rough, but liking the price I bought another. I was more careful but just over ...

Designed to break

Edward W., Newegg
10 January 2015
  • Pros: Sound is acceptable and the headphones are reasonably comfortable--well until they break.
  • Cons: The design of the headband s such that it is not if, but when. The when being when the cheap plastic headband snaps. The headband will snap in the exact same place as it has for hundreds, if not thousands of users. Once the plastic snaps--sure you can hand the headphones off the top of your head,...

Great sound CRITICAL FLAWS

Josh J., Newegg
6 January 2015
  • Summary: -- update: Tuesday, January 06, 2015 -- they denied my review on their site and an official email was dispatched saying i needed to read their review guidelines.
  • Pros: sound quality
  • Cons: Day one, I stream to twitch and hitbox so when i got these i was happy with the sound and recording quality. I noticed that the volume control placed behind the ear would rattle with the slightest head movement. two other streamer friends confirmed the same issue. plantronics warranty department ...

Comfortable

David K., Newegg
1 January 2015
  • Pros: If you have big ears, these are great. Other headphones hurt my ears after a while because they're pressing down on them, but these go around your ears so they're much more comfortable. Also the padding on the ear pads and the part that goes over your head is comfortable. Sound quality seems good...
  • Cons: None yet. I see all the other reviews saying they break easily, but mine haven't yet.

Great headset

Carleton P., Newegg
31 December 2014
  • Summary: Picked it up on sale, absolutely worth the money at the time. I'm sure it'd be worth it at full price too.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality Very comfortable, soft ear cups Feels solid and durable Looks pretty good Surround sound
  • Cons: The cord is a little short for me, seeing as it's on the left hand side of the headset, and my computer is down on the right hand side, had to run a cable up to the top of my desk to make it reach.

Decent for the price!

James K., Newegg
29 December 2014
  • Summary: If you decide to take the plunge and purchase this headset, do yourself a favor and download a system wide EQ. I use Peace EQ for Equalizer APO. Peace is a Graphical Representation for Equalizer APO. A quick google search for "Peace EQ" will get you where you need to be.
  • Pros: The best thing about this headset, In my opinion is how comfortable they are. I wear these all day without any music or games playing because I am browsing the web and forget they are on. I only start noticing fatigue after several hours (4-8) on my ears. The sound is very clear even with maxed v...
  • Cons: Biggest con is a lack of bass out of the box and no equalizer to adjust the sound coming from the headset.

Great Performance, Poor Durability

ED, TigerDirect.com
25 December 2014
  • Summary: I was doing just fine with this headset, no problems whatsoever, but recently I had lifted the headset to place on my head, and it seemed I pulled the two earpieces apart too much, and the plastic cracked in half where the padding ends on the right side.
