Lasted about a month

Sean J., Newegg
23 February 2012
  • Pros: Had very good sound quality, clear and rich, even with bass (for headphones)
  • Cons: quality has slowly gotten worse to the point that everything sounds metallic as if thru a tin can, and anything even resembling bass is nothing but crackling, chose Sennheiser because friends swear by them. Hope I can get this resolved with Newegg/Senheiser.

Great Value - Awesome Performance

John C., Newegg
15 December 2011
  • Summary: I own serious headphones--Beyerdynamic DT880s on a Headroom amp and dac--and the sound quality from this headset was surprisingly good. I'm not going to pretend that they're as good as my Beyerdynamics but they sound just as good as any uncomfortable "eargoggles" that I see many gamers wearing.
  • Pros: The sound quality is great from this headset. I use it for gaming and everyone says that my mic sounds crystal clear. When I'm playing online, I hear people before I see them. I also use them to listen to music and they sound really good--I was surprised. The headset feels very durable and it say...
  • Cons: Sometimes if I turn them up too much, and I'm listening to bass-heavy music, I hear low-end distortion from the drivers and feel the subsequent vibration from the earpads. This is only an issue if you're listening to music louder than you should be.

  • Summary: If you want a fairly cheap and loose-but-perfect fitting headset, and your ears aren't particularly sensitive to the lack of padding, I'd recommend it.
  • Pros: Good materials and build quality for the price. It uses a lot of rubber so it has a lot of give and will adjust to your head quickly, unlike some hard plastic headsets. Sound quality is okay. Nice and long cord. It's very flexable.
  • Cons: The mic picks up more background noise than I'm used to. It could use a microphone cover. The mic sound quality is also somewhat poor, but at least you won't sound like a robot. The ear padding is very thin and provides little comfort. Two cords instead of one. It seems very oldschool.

Almost 5 stars

erika v., Newegg
20 August 2010
  • Summary: I wish the base and the high's (hz's and the khz's) was deeper (base) and much higher frequency response. I think this is great for Kids for presents because the cant blow their ear drums. Its good sound. Would have gave it 5 stars if cheaper cost and better options.
  • Pros: Very Comfortable, lightweight and adjustable fit. The headset mic has a slight dull click when you adjust this. I think this is a plus because it secures the mic in position. 2 year warrenty
  • Cons: No cons because the description is everything it says.

good gaming headset

Michael M., Newegg
5 August 2009
  • Summary: A very good gaming headset, especially for this price range. Sound quality is excellent. Mic quality is meh, but good enough for voice chat. There's no volume control on the cord like there are with a lot of headsets, so you have to control the volume in windows.
  • Pros: Sound quality is excellent on this. I feel like I can hear footsteps from a mile away in cod4 and css. Its very light, and comfortable to wear for long periods.(unlike some headsets ive had in the past which would make my ears hurt after a while *cough*dsp-500*cough*.
  • Cons: The mic quality is mediocre. It seems prone to that loud windtunnel sound if you breath on it, so you have to position it below your mouth instead of in front. The mic arm is a hard rubbery thing that can be bent a bit to position better, I thought it was just hard plastic from looking at the pic...
