Summary: The headset itself is amazing, great sound quality and amazing bass on it. What I didnt like though was how short the mic was which lacked on how much of my voice was picked up, I LITERALLY have to yell at the mic so someone can actually hear me on like game chat or a party chat on Xbox LIVE!! If you're looking for good headset with a mic for gaming on Xbox LIVE , DO NOT get these because they are not worth it what so ever!
Summary: I was very disappointed with how this product is communicated, not necessarily with the product itself. Let me be clear: Sennheiser make excellent headphones, so I had no problem buying this set, nor indeed with replacing it with another Sennheiser product. The thing that is badly communicated is that Microsoft, in their wisdom, chose to fit a proprietary headphone socket in the Xbox One, rendering all previous headphones incompatible.
Good headphones, but the mic didn't work so item returned

Summary: As mentioned elsewhere, a bit of a mess of cables. I also needed to buy an HDMI adaptor as my TV doesn't have the jack-input for sound, so I couldn't use it right away - I can imagine tears before bedtime if it was a birthday/Christmas gift for someone younger having to wait for an adaptor to arrive! The sound is great - really clear and detailed. But...the mic did not work. My friends couldn't hear me at all - not a thing.
Summary: thought I was buying a quality headset to be used for the PC (not just xbox) but alas that is not the case, they dont work on my PC or on any other non PC device like kindle or I-PAD/I-Pod. The plugs just dont have the right leads.
