Summary: I received these a back in March 2014 while at work (i worked in a open office environment, so lots of loud talkers). These are great for blocking the sound of others chatter while you are trying to listen into a conference, or even a movie on Netflix.
Summary: The biggest issue with these headphones is the 150 Ohm resistance. With my ASUS ROG laptop, I have to crank the volume much higher than I'm used to to get satisfying sound. No amount of playing with the included Realtek sound settings could completely compensate for this.
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...

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...

Summary: Gamer, primarily on the Xbox One. I've owned the 2013 Astro A40s for the past couple years and am an Astro fan. At the time, I debated a great deal between these and the A40s. Ultimately decided the refurbished A40s + mixamp for $180 beat the $250 price tag for this Sennheiser headset alone.
