Summary: Very disappointed, but I use the headset every day for work and I don't want to do without one in the interim in order to send this one back.
Pros: Very light headset and feels that it is well made.
Cons: In the screen shot of the SC230 is an in line volume control and mute. When I received the headset, it did not have this feature. Had I known this, I would not have bought it. If you want a headset with a volume control and mute button, this isn't it.
Summary: Despite the issue with the microphone, i would still recommend these headphones to anyone who is willing to fork over the money for a good pair of headphones. I would just recommend setting up a push to talk button if you plan on using the mute feature.
Pros: The sound quality is amazing. The bass is strong and the highs are not overpowering. The noise reduction properties of the ear-cups work well with short hair. The headset is comfortable and i am able to wear them for 10+ hour sessions. The soft material also is great with glasses as it will confo...
Cons: 1)The noise reduction of the ear cups does not work well if you have long hair or a thick beard. it requires a seal to work and long hair and thick beards tend to break the seal allowing noise bleedthrough. Not that much of an issue though if you are playing music as it is usually loud enough to ...
Summary: I use a Asus Xonar Essence STX for this headset.
Pros: -Sound quality is great -This is a gamers headset that comes with a built in microphone -Pretty comfortable for my round head -High quality parts (you can tell that this is a premium quality product) -Sound appears to be accurate (not an audiophile). Don't buy this for music only. This is what I ...
Cons: -Bass may appear to be a little low but this wasn't meant for music. -Impedance is really high. You will need a sound card with an amplifier.
Summary: I've had this bad boy for about 2 years now. I use it for extremely competitive online gaming. Headsets were a HUGE deal for me, because i'm legally deaf in my right ear. Not completely deaf, but if there's any ambient noise, it's impossible for me to make use of my right ear.
Pros: Comfortable (can wear for 12+ hours without ears hurting) Noise cancelling LONG cord Volume control/mic switch FanTASTIC sound quality
Cons: Price, but you get exactly what you pay for.. The best.
Pros: The sound quality from these are impressively high for a headset. The microphone is great and I leave my precious usb slots free. Lowering/Raising the microphone yields a satisfying *tink* sound as it passes a threshold keeping it from accidentally lowering it when you don't want it.
Cons: The dampening of outside noise is somewhat weak. No, these aren't noise canceling headphones but I was hoping that circumaural headphones like these would block more outside noise.
Summary: After 3-4yrs, my Logitech Clearchat Pro Wireless-USB headset/mic was really dying with the problem most were having (crackling and hissing and popping). Though was bought more for teleconferencing, they were fine for online-gaming til the popping issue.
Summary: The price is a bit steep for a corded headset, but I wouldn't let that affect your purchasing choice. This really is a nice headset. So long as the left channel still plays properly, I intend to keep this. But I do suggest caution as the build quality seems to favor everything but the fragile wires.
Pros: To start, the sound quality in this headset is amazing. I have never before had a home-use headset with such clear and enjoyable audio. The microphone is also very good, certainly a nice combination of positives for gaming. The lows are as clear and audible as the highs. Guitars come through clea...
Cons: I have owned this for over two years (could not buy it on newegg back then or I would have!) and it has been treated delicately the entire time. Despite careful handling, the right sound channel went dead a year ago, and the microphone has been getting quieter as the months go by. This headset ne...
