Great item if you want your ears to bleed

Daniel L., Newegg
6 January 2016
  • Summary: 2/5, sound/mic is good, but comfort is terrible. OUCH!
  • Pros: Sound seems good, cool Dolby program to change things up a bit.
  • Cons: Most uncomfortable headset EVER. I have above average size ears, and the pain is unbearable, im having to adjust this headset every 45 seconds. On top of that, they're heavy, so if I adjust them too much to the point that the top isnt hitting my head, it puts a lot of weight on my ears. Complete ...

good sound, poor plastic quality

C. Stewart, Amazon
24 December 2015
  • Summary: Received this headset a year ago to the day (Christmas 2014 present). I was pleased with the sound and comfort of the headset and got good use for a year. Today as I settled in for a nice session of gaming, though, the plastic over the earpiece broke as I put them on my head.

Around ear, no sound insulation.

Larry R., Newegg
28 August 2015
  • Summary: Would not recommend. Imagine sitting in a room with other people, all of them speaking and all of them hearing what comes through your headphones as well.
  • Pros: Sounds good, fits well.
  • Cons: I have owned a number of headsets, cannot remember any being so poorly insulated. Very disappointed in that the around ear cushion does not limit ANY sound what so ever from entering OR going out of the headset! I would normally expect at least SOME affect on the sounds, but this is not the case....

Poor Sound Quality

JamesWebb, Newegg
2 December 2014
  • Summary: If you're looking for a decent headset I would recommend the Plantronics GameCom 377. I like Plantronics so the poor quality of these headphones was surprising and disappointing. I will continue using these until their death.
  • Pros: In my opinion there are none.
  • Cons: Honestly, I am torn between product dissatisfaction and the product actually being defective. The sound quality is so poor compared to my less expensive GameCom headset that I honestly am not sure. I play Counter Strike and found the sound oddly muffled. The earmuffs are too small to actually cov...

Fragile!

Anonymous, Newegg
1 December 2014
  • Pros: Sound is ok. Price is enticing. Two eggs.
  • Cons: I have to take my headset off a lot and there is a very Fragile section of this headset that will crack if you pull a little too hard. My best friend bought one before I could warn him and his cracked as well. I understand I could be extremely delicate with the hesdset but I just feel it shouldn'...

realistic review

Steve L., Newegg
5 July 2014
  • Summary: The headset is "OK" for 30 minute - 1 hour sessions, but then they start to hurt quite badly, and the sound quality is truly awful. I don't like a pounding bass, but these have none, and you need at least a little bit to create a full sound. The trebs and mids are distorted with any lows at all.
  • Pros: Metal extensions, sturdy: +1 egg aesthetically cool, red accents: +1 egg
  • Cons: ear cups very small, clothes pins on ears after 2 hours: -2 eggs buttons feel very delicate and cheap: -1 egg sound quality is terrible, if you know any better: -2 eggs

Sound is good, plastic is NOT

Glen F., Newegg
29 March 2014
  • Summary: Built in breakage, 1 year to 15 months. A shame the plastic will break for many people. Why use cheap plastic and very thin at the point of breakage????? I have tried using krazy glue, maximum hold to fix it with no success. What kind of plastic can't be glued with Krazy Glue?!?.
  • Pros: I bought this elsewhere so I won't show as a verified owner, but I am. I bought this headset for BF3 initially and the sound is good with solid bass. The 7.1 seems to actually work as I am able to hear people coming up behind me with good positional accuracy. 2 stars because the sound is good.
  • Cons: After 15 months of Very gentle adult use the headband broke right where the logo stops. This is NOT unusual I am finding. After doing a simple search online I have found many, many other people with the exact same breakage dating back to at least 2010. Different models but with the same type of h...

Good sound, bad manufacturing

Jim H., Newegg
24 March 2014
  • Summary: Too bad too. I really liked the sound. Now I will be looking for another brand.
  • Pros: Great sound! One of the best I've had.
  • Cons: 15 months after using it, the headband broke. I can see stress fractures on both left and right sides right where the GameCom logo band ends.

breaks

Michael N., Newegg
25 January 2014
  • Summary: Ive used a whole tube of super glue so far, if it wasn't for this issue I would give this headset five stars.
  • Pros: They sound great and fit nicely.
  • Cons: I go to put the headphones on my head and hear a crack. I repaired the crack with some super glue and it breaks in a different place. Ill consider myself lucky if I make the six month mark with these. My head isn't unusually large.

Good but flimsy!

Sukrae L., Newegg
26 June 2013
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality. Battlefield 3 never sounded better. Music also sounded great, covered entire ear, and never felt too uncomfortable.
  • Cons: After about 8 month of owner ship, the headband part just snapped while putting the headset on - no unnatural movements, just putting them on.
