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 headset was of decent quality, both in sound reproduction and recording. I found it to be uncomfortable after several hours of use as the speakers press against the head with a surprising amount of force and there is no meaningful way of adjusting the tightness; expanding the head band does nothing to help. In under a year, the left-speaker connection has come loose within the left ear-piece (based on some wiggling of the cable) and so that speaker no longer works.
Summary: I was very happy with this product initially. It was comfy, and the sound quality was good. However barely 3 months later the mic is broken. This is not good enough from a £20 pair of headphones. Avoid these, go find a better pair, one that will last more than 3 paltry months. UPDATE: Amazon has been very helpful, and is replacing the headphones with no problem. 5 stars for service!
Good headset. Minor issue. (Now broken 15/04/2013)

Summary: Headset is great. Bass is good. Left and right front channels WERE good. Surround is good. The headband is good, the ear cups are large enough and comfortable. The USB cord is massive which is great. The audio control input on the cord is pretty decent and the mic is great. I've had Speedlink Medusa NX headsets before and as always quality is top notch for the price but sadly, I've only had the unit 2 months and on this one, when you max the volume on the Front channels...
Summary: Main problem with this headset is that the arm for the mic is not long enough and unless press into cheek falls behind the mouth area and doesnt pick up when speaking very very annoying!!! I bought this to replace my previous headset which was the medusa pro I bought 4 years ago which is not made anymore, this headset is very similar in looks and design which is why I chose this but it is not the same quality and inferior ashame as was alot better quality than this.
Summary: Hatte bereits früher Medusa Kopförer und war mit der Qualität zufrieden. Der Klang war gut und hatte genug Volumen, satte Bässe, gutes Mikro. Hat damals 4-5 Jahre durchgehalten, bis es auseinander fiel. Und nun? Klang, wie aus der Mülltonne - total blecherns. Mikro rauscht. Bässe.... ehm kann ich nicht bewerten - habe keine gehört! Schade... 2 Punkte nur deshalb, weil der Kopfhörer ismmernoch unverändert gut und weich sitzt! Dennoch...
Summary: Ich kann mich noch an meines allererstes Medusa 5.1 Headset erinnern. Damals noch mit Klinke und einer externen Box. Das kam in einem schönen, schwarzen Karton, mit rotem Tuch gefüttert und mit Schleifchen fixiert....das waren noch Zeiten. Das jetztige, im Mai 2012 gekauft, kam in der üblichen Plastikverpackung. Vom Klang wurde ich zufriedengestellt, ebenso vom Tragekomfort und das Mikro war soweit gut, sonst hätte ich mir kein zweites geholt.
