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 ...
Summary: All around not a terrible product, I wouldn't say it offers anything special, but it was worth $40 on sale for sure. If I wanted to spend $80 on a headset I wouldn't look here. Additionally if you're looking for a headset with bass options or really loud bass just stop considering this headset...
Pros: sound is good, both as stereo and emulating surround.
Cons: Comfort is kind of a mixed bag... which is unfortunate. As far as ear comfort goes it seems to do that well but there is a lot of tension that places quite a bit of pressure on the sides of the head. After a while I usually end up wishing to take them off. While using any voice chat program (Skyp...
Summary: If you're using Windows 7 or Windows 8, have a smaller head, and are looking for a durable headset with good sound, the GameCom 780 might be exactly what you're looking for. If you have a larger head or use a different OS, I'd advise looking for something else.
Pros: + Good sound + Good microphone + Durable + Strong cord I purchased my GameCom 780's in late 2012 after going through 6 cheaper headsets in 6 months. I chose the 780 because of its padded cups and thick USB cord (most of the cheap headsets I went through frayed their thin 3.5mm cords). After a yea...
Cons: - Painfully uncomfortable if you have a large head - Highly reliant on special software I cannot use this headset for more than 45 minutes at a time. My right ear feels pinched within 5 minutes, and I have a headache after an hour. My smaller friends find this headset very comfortable, but as a t...
Summary: I purchased this headset from a different retailer over a year ago around Christmas. While my headset is still in one piece, many of my friend's identical headsets have broken due to the plastic being too thin.
Pros: Decent sound, good microphone quality
Cons: Extremely uncomfortable after a few hours of use. I keep a pair of earbuds nearby that I use when I'm not talking to someone because wearing this headset for extended periods of time can be extremely irritating and painful. I would not recommend this headset to anyone that has to wear glasses.
Summary: The Gamecom 780's were my first real headset for playing videogames. I'd used them consistently for about 2 years or so. After that time, I picked up both an ATH-AD700 and a JVC HARX700 w/ ModMics. The AD700 and HARX700 both blew the Gamecom headset out of the water.
Pros: Provides okay 7.1 emulation VERY sturdy build quality (I slam my headset on my desk sometimes) Built-in Mute and Volume
Cons: Decent at best sound Awful microphone Wire coils way too often after consistent use Ear pads difficult to clean, torn easily Not very comfortable Not true 7.1
Summary: I was debating on whether I would go ahead and buy this product again after it broke, but I in the end decided to go with something a little less breakable. In the end I decided on the Corsair Vengeance 1500 v2.
Pros: I loved the sound quality in this headset. It had some great lows and definitely improved my fps game play due to the positional virtual 7.1 surround.
Cons: Unfortunately a little over a year of ownership they decided to snap on me. Like many of the complaints on this product claim the thin plastic where the headband connects to the earpiece is very rigid. This causes this area to break due to the smallest fall. If you decide to go with this just kee...
Plantronics makes the only headphones I can wear - Too bad I have to buy a pair every year

Summary: Firstly, I have large ears which are VERY soft. The problem I have with most headphones is that they are not big enough to rest on my head without touching my ears. If the headphones touch my ears, then after an hour or two, my ears will hurt.
