Summary: I broke my good behind the neck headset and bought these in a pinch. If your looking for something that is small and light , these are in that category. Personally I dont like the over the head / cover the ears type headset, I prefer the behind the neck type. They are fair priced and sound decent but they have a big drawback for me in that the cord is way too short. You have to sit too close to the PC or game console and you will be constantly tugging at the cord.
Summary: It worked fine at first but then not even 15 days later the microphone stopped working on my laptop and ONLY my laptop and every other headset I owned with a mic worked still after this incident the mic works just not with windows 7 or just my computer and im not spending more money to get it fixed or to get a new one even under warranty its one thing after 15 days of use but seriously not even 15 days of use its a little over a month later and the problem still persists...
Summary: Great headset. Only issue is when using VOIP Programs like vent mumble or ts3 the output gives a beeping noise like a heart rate monitor. Making all other users listening a dis pleasant experience listening to me as I talk. Fixed it before by finding a old version of the USB sound card driver but I can't find it anymore. Rediculous.
Summary: These headphones were designed for kids. That is the only reasoning I can think of for them being so small. They are very tight on the ear, small ear cups, and perhaps most annoying, a very short cable. The microphone that pulls out of the side is very flimsy. I only give two stars because they sound decent. At $20 I took a chance on these, but I would not recommend.
Probably ok for children and/or as a backup pair of headphones...

Summary: I was disappointed after trying out the SteelSeries 3Hv2. The packaging looked very promising! While I liked the convenient and collapsible storage capability, these were the sole advantages. The ear cups were tiny and not at all comfortable for adult ears. The sound quality was poor, with weak bass, and muddy sounding indistinctness. $50 isn't cheap either and I was certainly expecting better audio quality.
Summary: Although there are some good features for this headset it by no means lives up to the hype on the box. They are cosmetically nice and come with the y attachment to make them handy for use with a phone etc. Yes they do have an on line mic and sound control element, and a very nice pull out mic that does not work on my set; however they sound tinny to my ears.
Summary: My title says it all. I'm honestly kind of glad they broke, since now I can invest in a better quality headset. If you do decide to purchase these, understand they this headset has 0 bass; it's mainly for FPS games. For some odd reason, the "sound card" causes a high pitched ringing sound that others can hear on skype/vent/mumble/etc, but you won't be able to hear it.
