Summary: Great headset for using on Xbox but would not recommend them at anything over $50 they just aren't worth that much. The sound is amazing but the mic has a hard time picking up my voice which could either be good or bad depending on how much background noise you have. I got these on sale for $30 and would probably pick up a different headset for anything more. They dont have a $150 price point feel. But if you get it on sale it is a great buy.
Summary: While these were extremely comfortable, the mic would not work properly. The mic cut in and out, cut off my first and last words and I had to yell for it to pick up my voice. Also the cord to attach to Xbox controller was so loose that it would fall out if bumped. The sound was really good though and had no issues. Unfortunately, since I need a headset specifically for chat, I had no choice but to return. Thanks Amazon for handling this so easily!
Summary: Bought these for my son and a few weeks after he got them we started having issues. They would cut out and he basically had to scream for people to hear him. A few months later they stopped working at all.
These are by far the best headphone/microphone I have ever bought for my son to use on his Xbox.

Summary: I have replaced the normal headphone/microphone for $20 at least three times within as many months. I saw these and I bought them and it has now been a year. A year of dropping them, a year of using them, a year of roughhousing them. I love them! I love the way the microphone has set positions and will snap right into a position and out-of-the-way, when not talking on it. These earphones work perfect, the sound is great.
Summary: well im honestly surprised, they work really well with no real problems. these arent anything crazy but they do work and for the price you cant beat it. cant see paying 150$ when they first came out but for 40$ definitely worth the extra ten bucks over the crappy turtle beaches. just some side notes, they look much better on person then they do in the picture and in a way they seem smaller in person but in a really good way.
Summary: This is a great product. I was previously using a $30 set of Sony's and this blows them away. Mine run through my Denon, the sound is perfect. I'm hearing better directional sound out of these than I did with the Sony brand. Long ago I used my speakers and surround sound, you just hear more detail with headphones. These are my first Sennheiser headphones and I'm impressed. I figured I would get what I paid for, but these were more than I expected.
