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....
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...
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'...
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
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...
Summary: I don't write reviews often, but this is frustrating enough to warrant one. I have owned these 13 months now, with minimal use. Today i went to put them on and SNAP! they broke on the left hand side of the headband. It is very sad as it isn't like i'm putting them on even the largest setting.
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.
Summary: their sound is really good for the price. the software has some minor problems in Windows 8, but its build quality is poor. After a 1-year estimated careful use, they broke. I do not recommend this product.
