Don't buy it

Anonymous, Newegg
20 February 2011
  • Pros: It does what it's supposed to.
  • Cons: Poor sound quality, uncomfortable, expensive, and I have to unplug it and plug it back in every time I turn my PC on just to use it. I have had much better headsets for half the cost. Look for something else or you will end up regretting it just as I have.

Don't buy if you want to use on your right ear.

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I should have read the reviews first yes, but I also think this should be in Newegg's decription.
  • Pros: Good price, sound quality is good but one major problem for me anyways...
  • Cons: This product is for the left ear only, being deaf in my left ear I have been wanting to try a single headset for a while since stereo is a waste. Very miffed as to why they would make a single headset like this and limit it to left ear only. How hard would it have been to make it swivel round so ...

Great headset

Ian B., Newegg

  • Summary: Not designed for use on right ear. Not a problem for me, but noteworthy.
  • Pros: Noise reduction is excellent on this headset. Sound quality has been great as well.
  • Cons: Generally feels flimsy. I'm concerned about its longevity, though I presume this is intentional in an effort to decrease the weight of the headset in situations where it's worn for hours on end.

Not Good

Claire M., Newegg

  • Summary: My biggest gripe with this headset is it broke in only 2 days of usage, and that is without any kind of physical misuse. I came on my computer one morning, noticed my buddy could not hear me then long and behold, the mic was not picking up anything anymore. After only 2 days of usage?! Unbelievable!
  • Pros: - Voice clarity is fine, when it worked. - Can be used in either a 3.5mm mic slot or USB slot using an attachment. That's all the pros I can find for this product.
  • Cons: -For a headset this steep of a price, the mic only swivels in one direction, making it only wearable on your left ear. If you are used to wearing it on your right ear, you are out of luck. My $20 Logitech Headset swung both ways! -Shape of the headset is a bit awkward. -Offered no greater voice c...

  • Summary: Awesome headset, in hindsight I wished I'd had bought a wireless one instead, but the product is excellent, build quality but also sound too, as my friends have commented.

Excellent Headset

  • Summary: Lightweight, adjustable and comfortable.. great with Skype or for MMORPGs.. worked straight out of the packaging with an Apple computer (having selected it in the Sound control panel of System Preferences) and has a volume control pad with mute switch, on the cable for convenience..

Great USB headset

OlsBean, Amazon

  • Summary: Great USB headset, I bought this to use with TeamSpeak because when I used a traditional microphone/headset I found it clashed with my WebCam that I use to Skype with. With this setup I can Skype when needed without having to manually switch Mic/Speakers from Headset to Webcam.

Good as input, bad to control

Armin Arend, Amazon

  • Summary: I am using this head set to record the sound track for instructional videos. The mike records the sound srisp, clean and fairly naturally. However the headphone is lacking so much in band-width that it is impossible to use it to check the quality of what has just been recorded.
