Summary: Even though the right headphone speaker is still out, I still use the headset for skype chatting or gaming sometimes. The mic is still working great, and I'm okay with the lack of audio in one ear. I will eventually be purchasing a different headset, however, although it will not be this particular model. I would have given this 4 eggs if the speaker hadn't shorted on both mine AND a friend's...it was a great headset up until that!
Pros: Upon receipt of product: -Comfortable (mostly! read the con) -Excellent speaker quality -Excellent microphone quality; it could easily pick up quiet sounds from across the room!
Cons: -When I first ordered it, the headset clamped around my head pretty tightly even with a fair amount of adjusting. After a few hours of wearing it my head or ears might sometimes feel a little uncomfortable. After several months though, it seemed to "loosen up" and I have had no issues with that since. -BIGGEST COMPLAINT: after about a year, the right headphone speaker went out. It started flickering a bit before that, and a bit of adjustment of the cable would normall...
Summary: This headset is a good one for the price mark, here's a few reasons as to why: -Does not require a USB port to use (in contrast to TurtleBeach headsets) -Has in-line remote for volume adjustment and muting (and the remote has a little clip on the back if you like clipping the remote to yourself) -Folds down into a small package for easier transport.
Summary: After 2.5 years the mic boom became completely loose and hung at lowest position, which then caused me to try out 6 different headsets at best buy and now I decided to just buy these again because 40 bucks for 2.5 years of life is pretty awesome.
Not that comfortable. (My Over View Opinion On The Headsets).

Summary: Mic Quality: Pretty good, But you can hear some noise in the background though light a faint buzzing noise. but it doesn't bother me. Sound Quality: Good! it takes some time getting use to though (for me at least). Ear pad softness: Pretty good, not the best cause its kinda big and its in kinda a square is form so it makes it a little uncomfortable. Head Band softness: Not that comfortable. it gives me kinda a small headache after 30- to a hour and a half later.
Summary: The headset is okay. It's not as loud as I would have hoped that it would be, but for only being $50, it isn't terrible. I was going to return it, but don't want to go through the hassle. I'd recommend looking for a pair that are louder.
Summary: When I got them I was worried about how well they would be made due to the price but they are great! Really comfy on my head, they look awesome just like the picture. The big ear cups make ARMA 3 a little easier to hear lol! The only downside is I cant wear my glasses with them on, this could just be me since I have a big head I guess.
