Summary: The sound from these headphones is good; it's like having a sound system in a pair of headphones, but there are too many wires, which always seem to get in the way of holding the game controller. Also, the control used for adjusting sound is not user-friendly, particularly when playing in a dim or dark room. Unable to see, I keep forgetting in which direction to nudge the toggle to adjust game sound versus chat sound.
Summary: UPDATED! Using RAZER Surround sound software these are better for pc than console. Some background I take my gaming seriously been online gaming for over 17 years so when I seen audiophiles making claims on these that they are indeed gaming headphones I had to test it. I wasn't as impressed... " Are these guys actually gamers or professional reviewers? Just tried the Skull Candy Slyrs. Not bad but definitely not for serious playing.
Summary: I give this headset a 3/5, but don't get me wrong, the headset works well. It's the lack of customization and features this headset has that brings it down. I would say, for the price, you could get a better headset (ie... g35, Siberia V2...). Also, the earcups are a bit too small for my taste, as they do not go over your ear, but on top.
Summary: I liked the headset A LOT! There isn't many reviews on Amazon so I based most of my judgment of the product from the reviews on Skullcandy's website (very good reviews). The problem I had was with the mic. First kind of annoyance is no mic monitoring, I think I get a little loud sometimes because of this.
