I liked this enough to buy a second one

Thomas C., Newegg
5 November 2014
  • Summary: I bought one of these two years ago and used it daily until the physical body of the headset broke near one of the swivels, making it uncomfortable to wear and significantly reducing how snugly it fit over my ears. However, I really liked it, especially for the price, so I bought a second one. It arrived today, and in putting it on, it made me realize how loose the old pair had gotten.
  • Pros: - Decent sound - Affordable
  • Cons: - Limited durability over long periods of time

Seems good

Andrea N., Newegg

  • Pros: Audio seems good, parts seem solid.
  • Cons: when using the headset with audio (skype, gotomeeting) I always have to change settings. I'm not sure if this is an issue or not.

The sound isn't amazing, but it's a decent headset

Thomas L., Newegg
1 September 2014
  • Summary: A decent headset if you can get it on sale.
  • Pros: I picked these up on sale for $40, and they seem to have a pretty solid construction. The microphone is better than the one on my webcam. Also, the volume controls on the headphones themselves is pretty nice.
  • Cons: The sound can be beaten by a $30 pair on Sennheisers. Also, the surround sound isn't that impressive.

A Solid Product

Anonymous, Newegg
18 July 2014
  • Summary: Overall, great product, it lasted me forever and it's pretty cheap. Anyone looking for a cheap but good product, choose this.
  • Pros: This pair of headphones lasted me a little over a year. It does come with a few flaws, but with proper care, it could last you a long time. +Great sound quality +Button on the side to turn on 7.1 surround sound (which sounds amazing in games, especially in FPS) +Great price for value +Very very comfortable, nice squishy ear cushions that are made from a type of cloth instead of rubber or plastic so it doesn't stick to your head after a while of use +Cord is very stron...
  • Cons: Now, it does have some flaws. Like I said, with proper care and use of the headset like putting it away properly, not throwing it and stuff, it will last a while. -The headband is made of a cheapish plastic, so it is easy to break. About 8 months of ownership, one side of the headband snapped. I glued and duct tapped it together and it lasted me another couple of months like that, but not as tight as it was before. Eventually, the other side broke and I decided to get...

The Headphones

Christopher R., Newegg
29 May 2014
  • Pros: This headset has amazing 7.1 quality for the price. I would suggest this to anyone! They are cheap and they feel like they are high end.
  • Cons: The Ear pieces are a little small and can crush ones ear... But just folding you ears a little can fix that all together!

Fantastic sound

Patrick M., Newegg
13 April 2014
  • Summary: Great sound quality, affordable, comfort may be an issue, and finally wish they would of done more with the software options and giving maybe more options to the headset.
  • Pros: Okay first off this is the first time I have gone with this brand, and I will say as far as sound quality on both stereo and dolby surround sound goes it is fantastic. As soon as I plugged it in and started listening to it on stereo I knew that it was good headset for the money, especially the sale that I got it for. Now, after downloading the sound card driver and hitting the faint blue button on the left speaker turns on dolby digital and the surround sound is fanta...
  • Cons: One of the biggest and most immediate cons for me and which basically broke the deal with these for myself was the comfort level of this headset. Now, I have a larger sized skull so I know that perhaps other people may be fine with this headset, and am not in any way trying to persuade someone from trying this great sound quality head set. Just know both myself and my wife is definitely average head size had a hard time wearing this headset. I also feel that the plast...

1 Year Owner

  • Summary: Overall a great headset other than the cheap plastic in the headband. Wait for them to go on sale.
  • Pros: Very comfortable ear cups and headband. Great sound quality, especially when gaming. The sound comes from where it is supposed to. On ear mute and volume controls work well.
  • Cons: Sometimes the Dolby audio 7.1 will cut out and it will go to standard 2 ch stereo. This is only an annoyance as you can just alt-tab and re-enable it with the taskbar icon. I never had a real problem out of these until tonight when I went to put them on. I am in no way hard on my headsets, they usually last me quite a while and I always take them off and put them on with both hands. When I picked them up and started to put them on the right side of the head band snapp...

Awesome, but...

Jeremy F., Newegg
17 February 2014
  • Pros: Awesome sound! Very comfortable! Well priced! 7.1 Dolby! Durable! Quality mic!
  • Cons: The only con I have: my headset usually sits on my monitor when I'm not using it or away. I went to grab it one day, and I put it on my head, and it snapped! They still work, but the right earphone is sort of dangling. I put superglue in the crack and it seems to be staying together but it still feels loose. I wanted to get a refund or new headset via the warranty but it doesn't seem to cover the US (?) I applied no pressure or abnormal usage when they broke, they jus...

Pretty nice.

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I am coming from using a set of cheap Turtle Beach's but I am comparing them to a pair of Logitech G35's and these win majorly in comfort, tie in sound quality, and lose in the category of bass.
  • Pros: Fairly comfortable. Nice high quality sound. Average quality build. Nice metal and cushions but the plastic does seem kind of cheap.
  • Cons: Earpieces need to be a little longer and they need better bass. I will admit though that these aren't made for music, they are made for gaming. Software disc was a bust and had to download manually but that is no big deal.
