Summary: This works great. Good quality sound, sturdy, and comfortable. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a 5 star rating is the cord. It's really long, and hard to manage when your sitting at your laptop.
Summary: Wish there was a key or something to deactivate the "hear your own voice" feature.
Pros: I got the same headsets from another retailer for a higher price. I like how they look and now I'm currently using the old ones. Just hope by the time I get to use the ones I bought for $35!! don't go "bad".
Cons: Having to hear your own sound is not so great. It could be annoying at times and will bug on TS because of the "hear your own voice" feature. Then again when you buying this product you should already know, I just didn't know it could be so annoying.
Summary: If you don't mind wired headsets then this is the best and most affordable choice.
Pros: I've had these for a month and use them nearly every day. I have a large head and these fit well. They cover my ears completely and are comfy. Great sound, volume, and bass. I use this on PC and Xbox 360.
Cons: I had not problems with this headset. I wish there was some way to use these when I get an Xbox One though.
Summary: I do not know why a reviewer below said the microphone is poor, I am using a computer and mic fidelity is outstanding. These headsets do not need care when putting them on or removing them, they need great care.
Pros: In a computer using a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z [equalizer custom Classical settings]. Mid tones and treble are simply outstanding. Bass is good. Microphone is very good. Very comfortable ear pads, comfortable tightness [my first set was too tight until they were broken in].
Cons: As others have pointed out, the plastic holding the ear cups is poor. I used care with mine, with the exception of often taking them off of my head too often with the ear cups. They lasted 19 months, I was very disappointed in losing a great headset. The volume and other controls on the cord were too easily adjusted with the slightest bump. The second set is much more firm. If this is a regular variation - from poor to good, then quality control should be better.
Summary: Very impressed with the microphone quality and ability to adjust chat volume and in-game sound volume separately. Very satisfied with the overall sound quality. This headset is very versatile, it can be used for gaming purposes or just for music / listening to streaming video purposes. Since I bought this headset, my room has become much quieter and sound levels have decreased dramatically which is a benefit to my roommates and neighbors.
