Summary: I purchased this headset for my husband. He needed a new one to help him with his gaming while playing with friends on World of Warcraft. My husband really likes this headset. The headset is comfy and the mic picks up his voice nicely. It stays in place and if he wants to move it out of the way, he can retract it. Also, he likes that he can control the volume and turn the mic on and off as well.
Summary: Thinking it was from Steel made me assume they were a much nicer set of headphones but after getting them I found my rather large head could barely fit them and then the earcuffs were extremely small and put pressure on my ears after a few hours of wear. If you have a big head do yourself a favor and get the Turtlebeach X series for the consoles. It eats up a USB port but the size and sound is unbeatable.
Summary: YES, it is small, not only the ear-cup small but also the whole thing is small. when you wear it it seems like someone is putting pressure on top of your head. Then i try to adjust the angle a little bit, it feels better. IF you want to know how small the ear cup is, the area it cover is no bigger than a size of egg THAT is, in terms of area, if your ear are bigger than an egg, the headset will not cover whole of your ears.
Summary: This gaming headset has decent sound quality and a crisp clear mic. My previous headset was so sensitive, it was picking up sounds from across the room and annoying my teammates. This set's mic is better balanced--my voice is clear and very little outside noise, like typing, my fan, etc, is picked up. Great deal, get one if you can!
Summary: Like everyone else on here has said it hurts your head and ears while wearing it! That is a total deal breaker and it has NO redeeming qualities. The sound is not great. The mic gets stuck inside of the retracting device in the ear phone and the sound is bad. Junked this thing and ended up just spending a few extra dollars on the new GameCom head set and never looked back. Dont buy.
Summary: The headset works well, nice sound quality and mic quality for the price. The downside is it can be a little tight on what I consider and average sized head. So may irritate the ears with prolonged usage.
Summary: Pros- Nice sound Damn good noise isolation Good mic (wish it were a longer connection though.) Cons- Small Earpieces Again, longer connection to the mic. (i have a big head, so this may not apply for everyone Earpieces heat up quickly.) Seems like a cheap plastic, not the usual durable stuff i'd expect from any good steelseries. In conclusion: Good while it lasts. I'll use it until it dies, then upgrade to a good headset from razer, or steelseries.
Perfect headphones for a 12 year old playing on a hand held.

Summary: Not good for an adult gaming on a desktop. Pros - Sound is good for gaming MMO have not tested on something like Skyrim - Mic can be hidden in earcup but is close enough to catch all conversation. - Orange cable and black accents are a nice touch. - Analog headphone/mic jacks make it compatible with most systems with audiojacks. Now fussing with USB drivers. Cons - Design - Too small for an adult head. They pinch tightly.
