Summary: Definitely a great buy. The wire is a bit short by itself. Thought after about 2 months of use, the sound started to cut out in the right ear. I've heard of this happening to others as well. Still a good product.
Summary: I have two spirited children who do not pay attention to their surroundings which leads to the destruction on average 2.5 pairs of headphones a year. The pros for these headphones: 1) Flexible retractable microphone; 2) blocks out room noise; 3) very comfortable; 4) clothe covering for wire; 5) separate volume controls for game and microphone; 6) mute button on adapter leading to gamepad.
Summary: I purchased this headset brand new for $34 to replace my dying turtle beach headset. The package also included an adapter which I would say is necessary for TV use. Not sure how good it would be for computer gaming, the cord is only 3 ft long. ----- Pros: Good sound, powerful bass, lightweight, xbox 360 compatible (with included adapter), does not require usb (although required for adapter, retractable mic, can break apart for storage and travel.
Summary: The steelseries spectrum 5xB headset are great, durable headphones for beginners or even the most hardcore gamers! The sound quality is superb, so good you can use it to listen to music on your ipod or other devices, which everyone knows how important that is. It is very durable which is important if it may take on damage. It looks beautiful, straight up.
Summary: This headset is great. The comfort is amazing, sound is good, and the wires are not that bad. The only problem I've came across is, that I have to leave the puck in my controller at ALL times. Not like the Turtle Beach x11. If I take it out, then I will have a problem with the sound of my friends/teammates talking. I have to push the puck in the controller, thinking I'll break it, in very hard. Other than that, it's a great headset.
Summary: I was very impressed with this headset. Not only was the sound quality awesome the comfort level was great as well. I have very sensitive ears so buying headsets is always a pain. When I received these I noticed right away that the ear cushions were very soft and when I placed them on my ears they felt very comfortable. The sound quality is amazing.
Summary: I really like these headphones. I'm pretty new to the platform headphone game, but I also have a pair of Ear Force X12 Gaming Headset and Amplified Stereo Sound , and there are some definite advantages to this set. The first thing I noticed is that these are dramatically more comfortable than the Turtle Beach headphones. The ear cans fit really well, and the padded fabric allows your ears to breathe.
Summary: I love these 5xB headphones with one exception, when turned up even slightly people around me can hear almost clearly what I'm listening to, that is the entire point to wear them, to not disturb everyone else. They are extremely comfortable and perfect for gaming. They aren't the "bassiest" headphones I've ever owned, but still good nonetheless.
