Summary: Well well, these are still being sold. I have owned 2 pairs of these headphones over the years. The 2nd was a replacement under warranty. Now I find myself with my 2nd pair being pretty well ruined. I have no idea what to replace it with. These are the most comfortable headphones ever to grace my head. I could keep these on for hours and my ears won't get sore or sweaty. Heck I bet I could keep them on all day and be perfectly comfortable.
Summary: Got a pair for my wife, and she loves it. Sound and build quality are good. That said, I can't use them. Being 6'2" and with a reasonably large head, the stretchy adjustment strap gets pulled to the limit, which causes the bottom of the ear piece to lift or at least apply less pressure than the top, which feels weird. Also, as a matter of personal preference, the ear pieces don't press against your head with much force.
Summary: Bought the steelseries after looking around for a comfortable over the ear headset for gaming (mostly WoW). Great sound quality and comfort so far. I was a little disappointed with the documentation which was next to useless in setting up and figuring out what did what. I've played with enough stuff to be able to figure it out but something other than a trifolded piece of paper with almost no information would have been nice.
Summary: Yes this headphone is billed as both a gaming headset and for just listing to music, but if you are going to do the latter, make sure its in a quieter place. Don't use it from music only. That being said, its PERFECT for gaming. Its very comfortable. Microphone is very unique and works well.
Summary: although the sound quality is not the best, it is still great. the only real thing i dont like about it is when its around my neck i cant really move my head down since they get in the way, and they squeak a bit when they move. BEST PAIR OF HEADPHONES I HAVE EVER BOUGHT.
Not very stylish, but comfortable and sounds great

Summary: Despite what many reviews say regarding these headsets, they are not what I would call stylish. However, when I am listening to music or gaming I am not really looking to impress people so the styling is a minor point to me. The sound quality is good, if not just a little bit lacking in the bass department.
