Summary: The goods Compact design, folds up. Microphone boom can be tucked in. Sound is good. The bads Too small, tight fitting for a normal adult head. If you wear glasses, the headphones aren't comfortable for longer sessions. The audio/mic cable is split into two jacks (for a PC).
Sound quality is great, and if you're using it for short bursts ...

Summary: The actual headphones don't go around the ears and despite the "Gaming" title in the name, using these for long periods of time while gaming will hurt your ears for sure. Sound quality is great, and if you're using it for short bursts of Gaming then these may be a headset to consider.
Summary: I edited this review to commend the excellent customer service I have received from Amazon, specifically a representative named Warren. They gave me a refund for the item and apologized for sending out a defective unit.
Too Small, Too Weak, Better Options Out There. No Thanks.

These two factors immediately eliminate it from being highly recommended: the two essential purposes the device needs to serve aren't...
Summary: I found the sound in these headphones to be good. No problems there. They are large enough to fit over your ears. However the problem comes if you are a "big headed" person. Another family member tried them on and she has a "smaller head" and she found them to be comfortable.
One big negative, just too small for normal adult heads. Otherwise they are fine.

Summary: Good: Sound quality is ok, certainly on par with the price point. Orange tangle free cord is nice. They certainly isolate sound, you cannot hear what is going on around you much at all. The mic pulls out from the headseat and pushes back in for storage. They fold up easily.
