Summary: I originally thought that this was a great headset, it's comfortable and has good quality sound. However, as other people have pointed out, it's not a very good build - the wires inside aren't very secure and so after a while they become loose - breaking the sound connection so that you can't hear anything.
Summary: This is the second headset from the speedlink medusa range which I've purchased in 6 months and both have broken in the same way, the wire connecting to the front right speaker keeps getting a loose connection after only a couple of months use, and in the same place just on the input to the left headphone. Obvious design floor, and unless you don't mind only hearing half your stuff on your left ear I would not recommend this product.
The quality of the product is great but it degrades due to the wires in the cable.

Summary: This is a great headset and am still using it, but I have had the same fault twice since I bought it in February 2012. Like other's I have had a speaker (left) fail, for me it's twice, On reading the other reviews and my own experience I can say the problem is the cable design used for the headset can be fragile.
Summary: Firstly, they are comfortable. That is about the only good thing about this fake "5.1 surround sound" headset. The mic is awful to get working. Windows decides every time to adjust the volumes on every boot-up,resulting in some cases to have to re-plug in everything and fiddle with the audio control panels. (This problem occurs to many Medusa users according to the Medusa headset website and forums and other tech forums). Now the "5.1 Surround". A gimmick as usual.
