Summary: I used PC166 at work for sound and mic. Sennheiser is my preferred brand so I may be biased. These are not as comfortable as over-the-ears cordless which I use for years without any problem. When first you plug them in restart the browser. It is also may be needed to check your sound devises in the control panel to make sure it is not muted and adjust the volume. It is sturdy and well made device. My colleague was using these for several years and is happy with them.
Summary: I listed three cons, and only one of those is really a CON. That con would have to be their construction quality. They operate and adjust very smoothly, but aren't extremely durable. These headphones aren't a glass rose or anything, but they aren't built like a tank either. You do have to be careful with them, or they will eventually break. If you live with others that may use them, make sure they understand this as well.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Flimsy Construction, Too Much Ambient Noise

Summary: Sound is okay. Does not even compare with Sennheiser 580s or 650s. Works fine with glasses as the earpieces are not huge. When I am done, I switch back to speakers for general gaming.
I use it to play FPS games.
Using it with the included USB sound hub is the best option - microphone is very clear and people can hear what I am saying. I wish I could get a boom like this one to use over the phone.
