Pros: The microphone is really good, doesn't pick most of the annoying sounds even on a continuous transmission. The speakers have a nice quality sound with a decent bass.
Cons: I've been using this for a month and it literally started digging a hole into my right ear. It's extremely irritated and almost bleeding. I can even feel a small crater and my ears are not big at all. At first, I would remove the headset and and have a slight itching pain for a few seconds, nothing to make a fuss about but it's just not normal anymore. I play game for very extensive period of times and I thought this product would accomodate me perfectly since it's ma...
Pros: When the mic was working, it had really nice sound quality and mic quality, i really like the retractable mic.
Cons: 5 days after the RMA replacement date, the left side doesnt produce any sound anymore. bummed out that i cant replace it, but be wary when you buy this product. try to get 2-3 year warranty or something.
Summary: Fix the software and improve the sound quality to get 5/5. Its a bit of a nuisance to switch the headphones on and off because I will not use them to listen to music.
Pros: The retractible microphone was a suprise and quite welcome. Has folding earpieces and fits snug.
Cons: Sound quality is not great - my other headset (sennheiser 280) has far superior audio quality for nearly the same price point. I would not use these headphones to listen to music but audio quality is acceptable for gaming. The software included with the microphone leaves a lot to be desired. It has support for 7.1 Audio which I think is a bit of a gimmick. They software at a minimum should offer some sort of microphone test utility. Configuring the microphone is much ...
Summary: A month back they started buzzing and I thought they were breaking but it turned out to be my motherboard's audio jacks.
Pros: I've owned these things for 2 years and they haven't crapped out yet. Listening to music is fine and I can decently hear where people are in game thanks to the help of Razer's 3D audio software.
Cons: I HAD to buy a separate $15 microphone for these because of the sound quality. For the first year they were very uncomfortable (maybe they shaped my head). After about 5 hours of use they start to hurt. To be honest there are headsets with better sound quality and comfort out there for lower the price. I don't suggest.
Summary: Good headset, fantastic bass and very enveloping, it's also VERY sturdy and if you're looking for a long lasting headset this should do the trick. The main issue is that the software likes to do it's own thing and change your audio levels on it own accord, so you constantly have to keep cranking the volume up on random programs, which is frustrating, as well as the mic quality, which is pretty low considering the price tag.
