It is one of the most comfortable headsets i have tried so far
3 weeks ago
Summary: This headset outdid my expectations. It has the sound quality of a $150 dollar Turtle Beach headset. It is one of the most comfortable headsets i have tried so far. I would recommend this headset 10 out of 10 times.
Summary: Use it on laptop, pc, and xbox. Bought a hori controller for my 360 and it did not fit so i had to gut and jerry rig it, but this is definitely meant for a stock 360 controller profile. Regardless, this is one of the best headsets i have ever owned for the price. Mind you, not the best ive ever heard. most $250 headsets sound better. But in this price range, this cant be beat.
Great for Glasses Wearer MMO Gamers - 4 months and still great!

Summary: January 2014 4 months and still great! I initially gave this headset a 1 star review in September when I first got them. You can see the original review below. I am changing this to a 5 star review for the following reasons. Sound: Sounds fantastic through the normal cord. I listen to the game sounds while in teamspeak. Great stereo sound. Microphone: My friends say I sound better than I did with my $200 Turtle Beach wireless headphones (in teamspeak).
Summary: This headset is really good for the price. I use them all the time when gaming on my Xbox. The best way to use these is to pair them with an astro mix amp. The mixer puck that comes with the headset is not good at all but with the mix amp from astro these headsets really are great and with a price tag you can't beat. * after about a year or so of use the head band snapped and the right ear cup broke off.
Summary: I have only used this on my Xbox 2 times but the sound was great no issues at all. on my PC this thing works flawless, wonderful all around sound weather gaming or just using them to listen to tunes cranked up to 11 without disturbing my roommates sleep. Great alternative to my surround speaker system when it may disturb others around me. The hide away mic is a nice touch as well.
Summary: I bought this thinking oh it wont work as well as my last one, but instead I love it. I like the comfortable ear piece's and the retractable mix. and I like how you can take the head set apart in to three sections for if you're traveling. I don't dislike anything about this product.
Summary: This is the first headset that I have owned for gaming and as of right now I couldn't be happier. Set up was a breeze but you do need the audio adapter which is already paired with this as an amazon recommendation. I already had one. I read/ watched video reviews on several other headsets...turtle beach, triton and steel series. You will see a lot of negatives for any headset you choose, but I can see without any doubt that these are the best for the price.
Summary: I've had these headphones for about a week now. And, I really do like them. They are very light on your head and ear's, I've worn these for hours on end playing games they are Wonderful. The plug in SoundMix controller they use to plug into the back of the XBox controller is really well done also, At first I didn't have it plugged into the controller like it was supposed to be, and it wasn't working just right, then I found the problem (that I made!!!
