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, but they will never be comfortable again. Plantronics has always been my go to for headphones. My last two purchases have a slightly higher build quality than Rosewill. My as...
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 stated that i could RMA them, however the duration of this would put my streaming on halt as this is the only headset i own. This can mean a drastic decrease in viewers and cr...
Summary: Ridiculous how easily these break! The most vital point on the headset (where pressure is applied) is not re-inforced! Horrible design. PS - I am a huge plantronics fan - best sound out there. Burned twice by them now, you'd think I'd learn. DON'T BUY, WILL BREAK!
Pros: Plantronics has the best sound (highs and lows)
Cons: 6 months in, SNAP goes the plastic. This happened on my GEN 1 770 also, thought they'd fix it with the 780... NOPE!!! Ridiculous
Summary: First time ever using anything from Plantronics and feeling very discouraged to ever look at their products again. I want quality products that will last, not break within a year.
Pros: Great sound, and very comfortable headset.
Cons: I take great care of my headsets so that they will last me a long time. My last headset was a Turtlebeach and lasted me well over 4 years. So a little less than 8 months I go to put them on and SNAP! The plastic right where the headband felt meets snaps.
Summary: Thought I was gonna get a good deal. Had bought Plantronics stuff in the past and have been VERY happy with the results. Tried this and regretted buying it. Didn't even last 1 hr. in my house after setup before I brought back to store for full refund.
Pros: Got it for about $50 at a local B&M store because they had wrong thing listed for the price.
Cons: Rather small drivers if you have a big head sub-par audio horrible driver/software no inline volume control cheap feel of construction
Summary: Creating positional audio with only two speakers is some where between improbable and impossible. If you want positional audio the inexpensive option, and the best one, is to purchase and setup an actual surround sound system. Only if you can not do this for reasons other than the cost should you consider headphones. The headphones you will need for positional audio will inevitably have more than one driver in each earpiece...
Pros: The sounds is pretty solid, even has respectable lows for a headset.
Cons: I've owned two of these now (not from newegg). And I couldn't be more disappointed. Both headsets have bit the dust in a 3 foot drop to the floor. Certainly not ideal treatment... but hard to avoid as well. The cheap plastic headband can't take even the slightest tumble and both breaks were in the headband right where it meet the metal arm supporting on earpiece. The boom mic was also a constant problem. It picked up a great deal of background noise and my breathing n...
Summary: It still works but the right side has snapped just above the size auguster and I haven't found a way to repair this so it can't be used. Other had this issue too. Plantronics must know about this design flaw. It worked well but should have lasted longer. Not recommended.
