Summary: Plastic breakable junk, Plastic breakable junk, Plastic breakable junk, Plastic breakable junk, Plastic breakable junk, It does sound good though - mine is blacked taped up and works ok for watching watching movies
Summary: This is a great product for about two weeks. That's when, if you actually use it for a mobile headset, it breaks. I need something that I can put in my backpack and take on the road and not have it fall apart and this is not it. If you are looking for a headset for home use, this might work, the sound was good, but if you plan to fold it up in its case, plan of replacing it in less than a month.
Summary: Length:: 0:23 Mins If you're looking for a pair of headphones that will only last you a month and a half before breaking, then you should buy these. These sit on my desk and stay in one spot plugged into my computer all the time. They haven't received any rough treatment. And I payed special care with this pair to remove them with both hands, as my previous Creative Labs HS-980 Fatal1ty Professional Series MKII Gaming Headset (Black) broke (after EIGHT months; NOT one...
Summary: the Cyborg 5.1 USB headset is great, there are only 2 things I found annoying with it and that was that at the beginning there was a weird static sound, but I looked on google and saw that the settings had to be changed sometimes, so I played around with the different volumes and the static is now gone, and they do start to hurt the ears after about 5-6 hours of wearing them, but a quick repositioning will help with that.
Summary: The sound these headphones produce is great, I'll give them that, but they are made of a cheap plastic and less than a month after getting them, they are now broken. I just threw the box away a few days ago, so now I can't send it back for refund or exchange. The seller I bought it from requires the original packaging, and Saitek support is nowhere to be found.
Summary: I just took them off and they broke. $89 for two months use. The sound was great when you used the sound configuration software properly. Comfortable. Don't waste your money. Always read the reviews before you buy anything. I should have listened to my wife. Time to break out the superglue.
Summary: :Update: And then about 3 days latter it died completely. I am going to try and open it up and fix it. I hope it is just a crappy solder job, as that is quite come in this cheap stuff. So, yeah, don't buy. :End Update: First off, there is the problem that the channel separation is crap, almost as bad as virtual, but Eh, whatever, for the price I didn't expect much. DO NOT GET THIS FOR SURROUND SOUND. I saw it for a cheap price, under $20, and thought might be cool.
Summary: These Saiteks are the typical Chinese junk. One ear piece broke off right out of the package. They're just plastic junk. Snapped off just trying to put it over my ears. Tried Superglueing it back together, not worth the shipping cost to return them. The Logitechs put these to shame. The mic is poor quality and lousy for others to have to listen to during game chat. Very sorry I wasted my money.
Summary: I ordered this headset in order to see if the reviews are as bad as they seem and I have to admit, they're on target as this headset was an extreme showdown. Saitek has lived up to its name as a low priced alternative to just about any external PC component like keyboards, audio devices, mice and such. It's also become synonymous with unreliable as they are cheap.
