Summary: I've become a big fan of the Steelseries line of gear whether its Keyboards, Mice, or Headsets. This Headset rocks, sound is awesome, its clear and concise when producing spoken word, and booming loud during the explosions. Buy this headset today, don't hesistate you won't regret it.
Summary: These headsets sounded great when using as a regular headphone but for my PS3 and PS4 the hookup was awful. Sound was muffled because of the lack of direct connection. I would recommend only for a strict PC gamer. Comfort was ok because they seemed to be a little heavy and the left can had a rattle which I believe was due to a defective product. This was ultimately the reason I returned them but do not be fooled this headset does not work well for a video game system.
Summary: The instructions that came with the headset were as minimalist as they could possibly be. Except for a "click" designation, there is absolutely no text to direct the user how to put all the different connections together. The visuals are not entirely that clear and it takes some thinking and playing around with connections to figure it out. Once set up, however, the headset is fine. It rests comfortably on the head with the padding as well as on the ears.
Warning: NOT compatible with Asus XONAR DG Soundcard

Summary: I'm not a review type of person, so I'm going to make this as short as possible. The Good: They sound fantastic. Super comfy, I can wear them all day. The assortment of cable attachments are really nice to have if you want to "go mobile" with them. The Bad: The included USB Soundcard is a joke compared to a very cheap standalone card, possibly even compared to onboard audio.
Summary: For the last decade or more I had been using a cheep Logitech headset just to get me by. I finally decided I spend enough time with a headset on to invest in a headset that would be worthy of spending multiple hours a day on my head; this is that headset.
Summary: Pros: -Comfortable ear and head padding, wore for +8 hours for music, work and gaming consecutively and ears did not hurt. Band at top did but after adjusting it it stopped. -Sound is good, not the top performance out there but its perfect for what its made for. -Looks like a set of headphones, hide the mic and your good to go!
Summary: I picked up this gaming headset with recording mucis in my laptop in mind. However, I must admit, when i received them, I was a little disappointed due to the cable connection kit. All I wanted was a straight forward 1/4 connector. But, that was my fault for not using common sense. However, after I hooked it up and tried the headset out, I was greatly surprised by the sound quality.
Summary: Pros: Comfortable - An issue I run into quite frequently. Many headphones and headsets are a little too tight. The cups completely engulf my ears as well, even when wearing small earrings. Per application configuration - This allows you to adjust equalizer, Dolby, mic noise reduction, mic compression, mic sidetone and mic volume for each and every application. Even disabling the mic for when you are listening to music for example.
