  • Summary: I will start this review with a disclaimer: I am not a gamer. However I have a teen son who is, and a husband who also enjoys a few hours a week on the X-Box, so I gave this headset to them and asked each of them their opinion (interviewed them independently of one another).

Pretty good headphones for gaming, but could be better

  • Summary: The first thing I test with headphones is how they reproduce music. Since music involves a wide spectrum of sounds, including human voice, I think it's a good test. So I tested this Spectrum headset for sound quality against a few others that I have: , , and the .

  • Summary: I got this headset for my boyfriend and when he first opened it up, he thought it was amazing. He used it for gaming and said the sound quality was very good and the mic worked well. It has been less than a month, and all the sudden now he cannot hear from the right side of the headset.

  • Summary: The live mixer is availabel seperately for about half the cost and will allow you to use any two plug PC headphones and still have all the functionality. Overall, the concept is excellent, but I am not a fan of them not getting a nice click-in feel on the plug into the controller, and I am not a fan...

  • Cons: -I had a buzzing because the mechanical stress relief that they used to guide the USB power through the exterior was not up to the task. The net result is that I had background noise unless I fiddled with the cable into the livemixer. I RMA'd the unit and I am waiting for the replacement. I will ...

  • Summary: [UPDATE] There has been one instance where one of the earpieces stopped producing volume until I unplugged the headset and plugged it back in. The headset has also recently developed a permanent hum. It isn't noticeable when playing a game...yet. [UPDATE 2] The right earpiece seems to be defective.
