Not for people with glasses

Henry Xu "book buyer", Amazon
1 October 2014
  • Summary: They were supposed to be comfortable, but as a person who wears glasses that comfort level can vary greatly. Maybe if I didn't have glasses on they would be quite comfortable, but personally I feel it is a little tight and the construction is very flimsy right at the point where the ear pieces connect to the band. My right side ear piece snapped at the joint and I was able to super glue it for about 3-4 months before it broke again.

Good speakers and mic, HORRIBLE PLASTIC FRAME THAT WILL BREAK

Matthew W. Kodrin "Wade", Amazon
19 August 2014
  • Summary: One of the pivot points broke shortly after I got these. I epoxied it back together and all was fine, until the other pivot point broke less than a year later in the exact same spot as the first one. This is clearly poor quality and I can't recommend this product unless it comes with a free pair of clamps and some epoxy to fix what will inevitably be broken ear pieces.

Breaks easily

Frank C., Newegg
13 June 2014
  • Pros: Decent sound quality
  • Cons: The left ear piece with microphone is attached by a small piece if plastic. With sparse (only used for webinars) use over a 8 month period, the connector on both sides developed cracks. in month 9 the left ear piece fell off. There isn't enough plastic to super glue it back into place. This connection point was designed to fail. Additionally the part of the ear piece that touches your ear is convex instead of the standard concave of most earphones. This leads to a str...

Great Value

emandragon, Ebay
29 April 2014
  • Summary: I haven't found anything I don't like about it. It's very comfortable, plenty loud, and sounds great. I use it exclusively for gaming, and am able to hear everything very clearly. I really like the mic boom. It's infinitely adjustable and stays where it's put. I also like the in-line volume adjustment so I can turn it down in-game without having to mouse out of my game window. VERY good value for the price.

My son loves this headset!!!

James Southard "JoeCop", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this headset for my son for Christmas. He loves it. He's tough on headsets, but this one seems to be lasting. After three months, it's still going strong. That may be a record for him!!!

Good Headset, but flimsy

B. Windsor "-TaiDai", Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: I enjoyed this headset a great deal while it worked. Good sound, comfortable on the head and ears. But one of the joints broke during normal use. I tried super gluing it back together, but it didn't last.

Wear glasses? This is for you!

C. Lett "book fiend", Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: Great for people who wear glasses! Adjustable in multiple ways so you don't get pinched ears and headaches. Sound is excellent, and the mic can be bent at any angle you want.

Different problem

David P., Newegg
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I actually was ok with these up until the untimely death of the volume control knob. I fought with these daily for a few weeks before tearing the control apart to see what was wrong. (I do not use that control often, but if it would touch anything the left channel would drop out.
  • Pros: Decent sound, decent mic
  • Cons: Inline volume control failure. The potentiometer is very poorly made and failed in fairly short order. It is a contact finger failure to the printed resistor. I would call it shoddy design.
