Summary: Just got them, not very happy. They work fine they're just poorly designed. Specifically, the ear cup is circular, not oval, which means there's a gap at the bottom back where my neck curves and the over-sized circular ear cup sticks out. This lets in all the noise I was trying to keep out.
Summary: my item arrived 3jul2015. i have used it almost daily. today is 11dec2015, and the mic just stopped working. removed left ear cup to get at the thing and found that the wire had begun to degrade at a point where it was bent. the insulation was gone, and some of the wires inside were severed.
Summary: For the price and from this company I expected a lot better. I can't say that I recommend buying a pair of these.
Pros: Decent build quality. Microphone is retractable. That's about it for the pros.
Cons: The USB and controller parts of this headset are very, VERY low quality plastic. The USB end has come apart in just a few days of use. There is a constant static noise playing through the headset that can only be fixed by pulling the audio cord out SLIGHTLY until its loose. This is very annoying....
Summary: when my pair of turtle beaches died out, i wanted a quick replacement without splurging too much and these seemed like a good bet at the price (less than 35 bucks) so I gave them a go as I have not had too much trouble with refurbished items from newegg in the past.
Pros: Extremely comfortable and snug fit, the audio quality is good when it works, though if you are looking for strong Bass, these are not the headphones you want
Pros: Good sound quality, ear cups are comfortable (see cons), works for tablet, phone, and computer.
Cons: When I got these, I opened the box expecting something similar to new. Instead, the box was filled with dirt and dust. When I picked up the headphones, a glob of cheese or ear wax plugged some of the holes in the speaker. The ear cups were sagging, wrinkly, and dirty. Clearly used and pretty gros...
Summary: I've been a user of the Siberias for a very long time. Back when Icemat was its own company. These headphones have always had problems and steelseries has yet to address them. I most likely won't be using any of the new siberia products til steelseries starts fixing some of the build problems.
Pros: + Looks amazing + Sounds great when working properly
Cons: - They're extremely fragile. I'd consider myself pretty gentle when it comes to my headsets and I've had two pairs of these break on me after a very short time. Both times they broke was because of the metal wires holding the head - The mic isn't the greatest quality. Becareful when pulling it ou...
Summary: This headset is way overpriced for its quality. Though the sound is amazing the item itself is less then acceptable. After now a year of usage its beginning to fall apart and the sound will cut in and out.
Pros: This headset has amazing sound quality and it is very lightweight when wearing
Cons: Very cheap materials used. Just recently the suspension cables on the headset broke and the plastic is starting to wear. The ear muffs themselves have held up but they do cause some ear pain after prolonged use, at first i though this was just me getting use to it but after a year of heavy usage ...
