Great for gaming

  • Summary: These headphones excel above the average VoIP / Gaming headphones. The microphone is crystal-clear, and the headphones deliver very rich and powerful audio reproduction. This is by no means an audiophile-headset, however. As for gaming, these excel over larger headsets for their portability and attached microphone.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Uncomfortable

One of the best headsets I've ever used!

Dustin the sound guy, J&R
9 December 2010
  • Summary: I use this headset for online gaming, listening to music, live sound productions (E.G. mixing sound for concerts), and even schoolwork. It's easily the best headset I've ever owned, and among the best headphones I've ever used! The sound quality is so precise, and well-balanced, I tried to EQ it to taste on my PC, and found it nearly impossible to improve on! I can hear the faintest sounds on music, and in games, it's intense.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Too Much Ambient Noise

  • Summary: Bought this headset nearly 5 years ago, great bang for your buck, although the mic broke about 2.5 years after use, and the cable broke now after nearly 5 years. Very comfortable supra-aural, open design, easily wearable for hours at a time.
  • Pros: mid and treble quality, locatability, comfort
  • Cons: weak bass, mic breaks easily, cable/volume control breaks easily

PC 161 Stereo Headset Review

MattVid, B&H Photo
11 March 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this headset to replace an old Logitech one that my dog decided to destroy. I have to say, this headset is better than any I have purchased before at this price point. I use this mainly for gaming, voice chat, music, video and general computer applications with sound. The sound, treble and bass are crisp and clear, and the connections that go directly to your sound card insure you are getting the most out of your headset.
  • Pros: Adjustable volume control, Comfortable, Easily adjustable, Great sound, Microphone mute control, Non-USB connection
  • Cons: I have no complaints

Excellent all around

  • Summary: The microphone in this made a massive difference in the accuracy of speech recognition for me. I have a big head and the pressure gets a little uncomfortable after a while, but it is better than most. Tip: if headphones are too tight, take them to a glasses store like lenscrafters which has machines designed to bend plastic without breaking and ask them to loosed them out for you.
  • Pros: Soft and comfortable earpieces , Very clear-sounding microphone , Cushioned headband , Clear sound , Good bass for headphones of this price , Microphone comes with a black foamie cover thing you can put over it
  • Cons: May be too tight for some people with big heads , Volume and mute controls are ~3ft down the cord which I think is a bit too low.

  • Excerpt: Отвратительное звучание. Если вы слушаете, а не просто слышите - эта гарнитура не для вас.
  • Pros: Достаточно длинный кабель (3м). Регулятор громкости и кнопка включения/выключения микрофона на проводе.
  • Cons: Звучание.

  • Excerpt: Здесь все довльно-таки сложно... С одной стороны - это гарнитура (наушники + микрофон в одном флаконе) и качество звука для такого продукта вполне на уровне. Много читал отзывов на англоязычных сайтах и там народ аж пищщит как им эти уши нравятся. Однако! Если говорить чисто о звуке, то те же Сенхи HD215, которые стоят около 2000 рублей (на тыщу-полторы дешевле) по звуку на порядок превосходят PC161. Также по уровню сопоставимы "родные" затычки от iPod'а.
  • Pros: Адекватное качество звука (для гарнитуры), нормальный микрофон.
  • Cons: Цена, качество сборки.
