Summary: These are my first pair of "gaming" headphones. They are ok. They function as they should. That's the positive. While I don't hear any hissing or buzzing, the voice/chat quality is pretty much the same as it is using the el cheapo Microsoft headphones. The headset doesn't feel sturdy, I've been using them for about a week straight and I am terrified that they will break. They just feel flimsy.
Summary: I just thought that these headphones were average, nothing fantastic and not bad. I would not recommend paying extra for these versus buying whatever type of headphone that you would like for less money.
