Overall not a wise purchase.

Summary: Product is heavy, extremely tight fit on head (I typically have the opposite problem), The "Surround Sound" they mention, when turned on, mostly just makes some sounds quiet and lightly distorted and over all just makes the sound emitting from the headset sound, for lack of a better term, off. The LED lights on the side were fairly customizable but still were obviously not very good at transitioning between colors.
Summary: The headset was on time from the seller and the package wasn't damaged or opened, took me a bit to get the mic sensitivity right and Dolby to work properly, after I got everything hooked up and working it was fine, until the next day. The mic started to get a buzzing sound when I talked and then the right ears sound went out.
Good headphones. Good sound comfortable. Buggy software read for software fix...

Summary: So far these heaphones have worked just fine. People on my TS ans mumble reported my mic sounded much better than my previous 2 headsets. So im not sure where people poor reviews of the mic are all about. for me the issues with this pair was not the hardware at all. The software for the steel series heaphones is really buggy if u have issues with it not opening as i did do a registry clean after uninstalling and reinstall the software and it should go back to normal.
Summary: Ok, I know the reviews. I was hesitant at first to buy this headset as I was put off by all of the reviews saying that they stopped working within months. But for me, this is the best gaming headset I've ever had! Ive owned them for a few montha, and have had absolutely 0 problems. Super comfortable, premium feeling headset. The pulsing lights on the sides really give them a cool edge. And huge customization options in the software.

Summary: Well, I'll just get to it. I regret this purchase. These set of cans may look comfortable, but the round shape of the earpads does not accommodate a good fit for your ears. The top part of the cushion will push the top of your ear to your head, resulting in discomfort, and will surely not last you long gaming sessions. The sound is mediocre, even with the tweaking of the EQ, I was still unable to obtain the sound I wanted.
I've had 3 of these headsets, all stopped working.

Summary: The headset I received had no sound in the right ear. It then took 3 months to get a replacement. They sent the wrong color (black). It took another month to get the correct product, and they 'graciously' allowed me to keep the headset they sent in error. After weeks of use, they replacement started to fail, so I switched to the black set they let me keep. I am now writing this review because the mic has stopped working on the black headset.
Summary: Great headphones, clarity is fantastic and blocks out outside noise. Does not cancel them so if someone is yelling at you, they can be heard a little bit. Also very comfortable over long periods of time.
Summary: I was really excited to buy a new headset I have been rocking the Razer SWTOR headset since that game came out. It has amazing sound but the headset itself is not super comfy for ling gaming sessions. I upgraded to this set and while it is truly comfortable the sound is pure garbage. It was so bad I pulled out my old SWTOR headset dusted it off and this shiny new headset is back in the box under my bed.
So-So...Comfortable, but right ear did not work properly.

Summary: I read all these reviews about the right ear problems with sound going in and out. So I decided to buy "Refurbished", thinking that the problem would have been fixed...I was wrong. Oh well. As far as the headphones, they were comfortable. That is about all I have nice to say. The sound was mediocre - there are far better gaming headphones out there. The mic was fine, no issues there. I returned these b/c of the right ear problem.
Summary: I purchased these headphones thinking the would be comfortable, but I was wrong. I could not wear them for more than an hour with out my ears hurting. The opening in the cushion is too small for my ear (and probably any adult ear) to fit in; so no matter how you position them, some part of your ear is going to be under pressure. Also, the sound "quality" is average, at best. All the presets sound like your listening to a cell phone in a tin can.
