Summary: As soon as I got into my car at the post office, I tore into these and plugged it into my phone. Hmm, tinny, weak... but pretty clear... I figured they might need to be broken in a bit and ran a playlist of a few different genres (from classical to dubstep) for about a day (under some pillows...
Summary: After being recommended highly at Lifehacker.com, I bought these headphones to use with my mobile phone when I work at home. The sound is great, they're comfortable, and the "mute by raising the mic" feature is a nice bonus.
Summary: Let's get to the point. I will be returning these soon. I strongly disagree with any and all 5-star reviews on this, and am glad I read the 3-star reviews to get an idea of what I was dealing with here. AUDIO: Definitely takes getting used to.
Summary: Pros: - Very comfortable for my larger than normal head for extended sessions - Crisp sound quality out of the box - Mic quality is leaps above my previous "gaming" headset (Logitech G930) - Zero to extremely small amount of bleed through from earphones to mic (I had to crank all the volumes all the...

I plugged directly into the back and it was a little better, but not much

Summary: after unboxing, I decided to try these out with my music, games and movies. I plugged them into my computer speakers and I had to turn all volume all the way up on both speakers and the set to hear anything at a decent volume. only after heavily applying EQ did they sound decent.
