Very good Headset

Katherine M., Newegg
19 March 2012
  • Summary: only thing would be preference if u like isolation and earcups....well these are on-ear headphones so just remember that altho they are the most comfortable on-ear-headphones i have ever worn
  • Pros: Very Comfortable and light on the head and ears. They are tough....even after i dropped a 80lb marble statue on them...they still worked even tho some of the plastic broke....they kept on working taped together for about 4 years lol. Surprisingly good sound quality as well from these with an on b...
  • Cons: i dont have a lifetime supply of them....which would probably only require like 3 pairs in this case lol

Almost too amazing

Clayton S., Newegg
4 November 2010
  • Summary: Look if you want the perfect headphones you'll need to jump up a few price points. At their current tier of 100 - 150 I challenge you to find a better set of headphones. The sound is great, the built in sound card for 3d sound is great. The option of using the USB or line in/out cords is also nice.
  • Pros: Wonderful set of headphones giving phenomenal sound. Just what you would expect from sennheiser.
  • Cons: This may be nit picking but comfort is a con. The ear pieces are not large enough to cover the ear so they create some discomfort after several hours of use.

Great Item

James G., Newegg
27 January 2010
  • Summary: Using the USB dongle and works great! Had a low volume problem but just adjusted the settings in Windows 7. Using Windows 7 64-bit and had no problems installing the usb and working right away.
  • Pros: Great Item, clarity is top notch and using Mic while gaming sounds crisp and clear, according to people on the other line. Very comfortable and light on the head. Have worn for about 3 hours and still feels good. I wear glasses and does not seem to interfere much, if at all.
  • Cons: The price will generally reflect such a top notch item. As such, might be out of the price range compared to other but still worth it in my opinion. The plastic at first touch/glance seems to be a little cheap.

User Review

10 January 2010
  • Summary: The USB adapter/sound card quit working after about 10 months, but I think that may have been a problem on my end as I've had trouble with my USB ports lately. The headset still works great with the 3.5mm plugs though, so it's not a huge problem.
  • Pros: This headset has by far the best sound quality of any of the ones I have used. The USB adapter was great while it worked (see other thoughts). The cord hasn't pulled out of any of the connections (i.e. where it attaches to the headset), which has been a huge problem for me in the past, before thi...
  • Cons: The cable is a little too long and sometimes get stuck in the wheels of my computer chair, I should have kept the thing it was wrapped around. Also, either the headset has stretched or my head has shrunk, because now, when I bend over to pick something up or look down to find the inline volume/mu...

Great

Anonymous, Newegg
2 August 2008
  • Summary: Came with a USB to audio adapter. Automatically detected in windows XP, and works great. A nice change from the weak soundcard on my laptop.
  • Pros: The microphone quality is very good. I upgraded from an analog microphone, and a bunch of my internet friends all went out and bought Sennhiesers. Everyone tells me my voice is very clear and it's like I'm in the room next to them. Sound quality is great as well through the speakers. I'm somewhat...
  • Cons: The wire seems a little thin from the inline adapter to the plug.

Excellent Headset

20 June 2008
  • Summary: Excellent headset. This is certainly recommended.
  • Pros: The headset comes with USB connector. Even though this will cause some audio quality loss, hey, that is nice of them if you want to go that route. The sound quality is outstanding and the microphone is unrivaled. My voice is very well broadcast in Skype, Ventrilo, etc. Overall, this is an outstan...
  • Cons: Not a very snug fit.

Excellent Headphones

Lucien K., Newegg
24 May 2008
  • Summary: If you want a good pair of headphones, get these.
  • Pros: Love the sound quality on these. Coming from useing the integrated sound card on my laptop, this is a MASSIVE improvement. I would never have believed the difference that headphones could make, but there you have it. The microphone is quite good also, very clear and easy to understand. After comp...
  • Cons: Default volume is a bit low, and the bass could be better, but after tweaking a few settings on my computer, they are fine.
