Summary: Pro: Really nice feel. Excellent mic. Decent audio quality. Con: Sadly, I expected more out of this headset. I had a $60 Plantronics with similar aesthetics to this headset. They seem identical in performance for both bass response and voice clarity. The microphones are identical as well. Why spend 5x more money when a $60 headset is just as good. I would recommend buying dedicated headphones with a quality studio mic if your going to enter this price-point.
Not for use with single input macs or iphone without usb soundcard

Summary: The sound quality both for the headphones and mic are quite simply amazing. The swing down boom is exactly what I wanted and I've been disappointed that I couldn't find a mac-compatible version of similar quality. With a new mac one must use a usb sound card which is a pain on a laptop.
Summary: I use this primarily to listen to music and for voice chat. It replaced a non mic Sennheiser that I had for about 12 years which was open air. The old one's had a speaker blow out and after reading great reviews on this one I picked it up. I gotta say, the bass isn't as great as I had hoped. I have some in ear Logitech/Ultimate Ears that has much better bass, but these are more clear.
Summary: Bought these as an upgrade from my old PC 350's, which had some serious wear and tear. So far, it's been worth every penny. These are definitely in the higher price range, but given their performance and the overall quality of the product I would absolutely recommend them to anyone searching for a serious gaming headset. Audio quality is fantastic. For games, you'd be hard pressed to find something better at this price point.
Summary: My first gaming headset. Has the signature Sennheiser sound. But since this is a headset marketed as a gaming product, stick to what it is made for. I tried using it for other purpose like listening to music and watching Youtube videos. I could not appreciate it. Also, remember that this headset requires an amplifier. Otherwise, it is useless. Once that has been taken care of, this headset is great for FPS gaming.
Summary: No complains, but the isolation feature makes you head your voice a little odd to head during online conversations, this is not a flaw of the phone itself, but with all of that kind of gaming headsets.
Summary: I game for long periods of time so the closed ear design is not for me (they get too hot) ... especially when im only gaming at home (if it were for mlg or any lan party gaming i would keep em)... im only returning because i want the sennheiser pc 360 instead for the open ear design ...
