PC 140 Supra-aural

Meo C., Newegg
18 November 2007
  • Summary: Overall good microphone / headset. If you have the money, try to avoid this headset, gets uncomfortable to wear.
  • Pros: Long cord, easy use, windows automatically detected my device.
  • Cons: Uncomfortable to wear after long periods of time. Also, at times while using MSN messenger or Yahoo it suddenly cut off and stop working until I restart the messenger. Software error.

Comfortable Standard

Casey H., Newegg
12 November 2007
  • Summary: I use these with an X-Fi Platinum card, which probably helps the recording and playback quality a lot. While I use them for gaming and think they are fine, they are not the best if you're concerned about hearing every little detail.
  • Pros: Surprisingly comfortable as most behind-the-head sets I've had were too tight, but these feel great even after a few hours. Perfect mic reproduction, especially with the foam baffle. Crystal clear on Ventrilo. Money well spent.
  • Cons: None that I can find. I got them mainly for voice chat online.

  • Summary: Due to my use of professional gear often, my standards were set very high though the sound quality did not meet those expectations it is adequate for most uses.
  • Pros: The microphone boom is placed well. The headband doesn't clamp down hard on your ears.
  • Cons: The sound.... Well I expected much better from sennheiser. If you try and put the over ear headband behind your ears they will rub them raw since there are some sharp molding edges on the bottome of the headband right where it goes over your ears. If you just set it on top of your ears without pu...

Awesome Deal

  • Pros: Good quality mic and audio. Can go loud without any static. Fits rather comfortably. Perfect sized cord for what I need. I mean PERFECT! Haha.
  • Cons: Very slightly uncomfortable after long periods of time. But really once you readjust it on your head you forget all about it.

Don't buy this

Anonymous, Newegg
21 September 2007
  • Summary: Going to buy a self stand microphone from Logitech. I do recommend Newegg.com for products, great customer service.
  • Pros: This microphone has no pros
  • Cons: I got the microphone and it worked great for 20 - 30 minutes, super clear. After that time is over it will start to make beeping sounds and die. Also the headset is very uncomfortable to wear.

Good for the price!

Douglas R., Newegg
29 August 2007
  • Summary: So far I'm glad I bought these. Excellent value, and as long as you don't use them for long periods of time, they are fairly comfortable.
  • Pros: The sound out of these is amazing--much better than any other supra-aural headset I've had. It's very light and flexible, and the behind-the-head design doesn't mess up your hair. The microphone works well too; excellent quality for its size.
  • Cons: Though light and flexible, it is also somewhat flimsy, and gives the impression that it could be easily broken. It also gets somewhat uncomfortable, but only after using them for a long time.

Amazing headset!!

Daniel W., Newegg
16 August 2007
  • Summary: Buy this! I use this for music, games, and webcamming. I love it! Worth every penny I spent on it.
  • Pros: From the moment I put these on, I knew this headset was well worth the $30! The sound quality is great for it's price. The volume switch makes things easy when I listen to music. The chord is very long, which is a big plus for me because my computer desktop is pretty far away from where I sit and...
  • Cons: It wasn't free. Other than that none!

Clear sounds

Nicholas P., Newegg
14 August 2007
  • Summary: No static in the in-line volume control.
  • Pros: The drivers on these headsets are decent, providing a clear sound, better than previous low-end Logitech headsets I've had. The microphone is good as well, the flexible boom and flexible headband make it more comfortable to wear versus over-the-head headsets. The build quality is good as well.
  • Cons: Nothing to be overjoyed at, these drivers aren't as clear as a older set of Altec-Lansing headsets I've had.

Surprising

Ross L., Newegg
27 July 2007
  • Summary: The band is very flimsy. This turned out to be blessing in disguise, because most headphones hurt my ears. These headphones don't create much pressure against my ears, so no pain! I can see how some people say the tops of their ears get pinched, but they feel great to me!
  • Pros: Clear sound from speakers. Mic works well. The speakers don't press against my ears. Durable.
  • Cons: Flimsy plastic.
