Summary: Arrived quickly and well packaged. Very comfortable to wear (ear cushions are soft and you barely notice you are wearing the headset!) Great high quality sound through the drivers. Game volume and chat very clear. Microphone boom can act as a way of muting the mic (by lifting the microphone boom up to the top) which is a nice feature rather than fiddling with buttons on the sound mixer.
Summary: These were purchased as I needed something like this for my PC. There was nothing in the write-up to suggest that they would not work on a standard PC. In fact, seeing the pictures of the product I noticed some different plugs, or "Jacks" that come with it. One set of these seemed to be suited for a normal PC 3.5mm Jack.
Summary: My main issue with this headset is the design, the earcups are not large enough and cause the inside of the set to rest on my ears, the foam inside of the set is more like a very thin layer of cloth, this causes extreme discomfort after wearing them for only a few minutes and actually becomes very painful after about an hour. The headband adjusters are also WAY too loose, just hold them can easily cause them to extend.
Disappointing .... so close to 5 stars with a *tiny* bit of thought.

Summary: Ok first off these are Sennheiser and as everyone knows these are what would be termed top of the middle class range of headsets. At £100 they are not budget but neither are they £1000 Grado reference or £250 B&W headsets. So the comfort is good, the acoustics are good, the quality is good. So all good right ? Yes ... but here's the rub. They are really fiddly to set up. There's cables everywhere.
