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...
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.
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.
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.
Cons: The wires inside broke shortly after the warranty expired. My friend opened them up and the soldering was pretty poor on the very fine wires inside. We replaced all the wire inside them with heavier gauge and they work again.
Summary: I don't usually write reviews, but this was so frustrating that I just wanted to warn the buyers. I'm seeing a lot of Newegg reviews that show 4~5stars(I was on the same boat when I liked it at first), but most likely you'll have the same problem as I had.
Pros: Nice mic(+1 to retractable), really comfortable, worked pretty well when it worked for over years.. long cables made it easy for me to move around the desk. Nice detachable Build-in Sound card
Cons: I've purchased the first set on 5/12/2008, replacement in 2009, and got the last replacement in 2011. ALL 3 of these had SAME problems with in-line volume/mic.. It worked fine for a couple of months until the controller became static and kept on losing sound either on the left or right ear pieces...
Summary: Trying them for a few days before I RMA. The cleanliness or lack thereof is disappointing, but the sound issue is a real concern. Ventrilo chatter is causing distortion; need to try in Skyrim later.
Pros: Extremely comfortable, mic has good pick up.
Cons: Sounds are distorted, with a lot of static appearing above about 60% volume. Headphones came repackaged (which was expected) but utterly filthy. I'm talking dead skin caked into ear coverings, human hair stuck to them, and dry sky stuck in padding on the top. Had to thoroughly clean them before use.
