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: The boom mic was also a constant problem. It picked up a great deal of background noise and my breathing no matter how I positioned the adjustable boom. The boom is plastic and can only move up and down.
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.
Summary: I am very tempted to give these more as I was impressed with the sound quality and clarity of the mic. However, I did read the review before purchasing this, including the 1 stars, stating how the connectors between the head band and the earpieces broke easily. I decided to ignore this as my #1 choice of earphones (for music) get given the same sort of negative reviews but I look after my earphones very well and they last me long enough.
Summary: I used these headphones without isue for nine months. The sound, comfort everything was great. The other day placed them on my head to have the plastic snap in my hands. Looking at the plastic it had gone white from the strain of being place on and off the head. Very disappointed considering id used plantronics products for years.
Summary: I bought these eight months ago and they snapped above the right ear the headband plastic is very brittle I went to put them on my head as usual and snap ,I was shocked because I really looked after them I didn't drop them or abuse them . The sound was good although my wife could hear every word of everything I listened to and they aren't 7.1 surround they are stereo adding echo does not make surround AVOID like the plague .
