Heavy, uncomfortable, miserable!

Summary: I've worn plenty of headsets and this is BY FAR the most uncomfortable headset ever. I bought this thing for $15 and am tempted to just chuck it in the trashcan without even using it once. It's THAT uncomfortable. As others have pointed out, the place to slip it over your ears is very tight and pinches your ears, the design is heavy... I could go on but I think you get the point.
Summary: Microsoft! What were you thinking when you created this product? I didn't realize that a headset could fit so poorly! I highly recommend trying this on in a brick and mortar store, if possible, prior to purchasing. Otherwise, choose a different product.
Summary: This is one of the worst products that I have ever bought. It's very uncomfortable to wear and you can barely hear anything from the speakers. I feel this may have been designed for a child because of the size of the headpiece that is not adjustable. If you have an average size head do not buy this product!
Horrible quality, Microsoft takes your money - delivers nothing

Summary: The microphone simply does not work, even my built-on mike from 10 feet away works better that this Microsoft product. Adjusting the position of the mike is completely inconvenient adn not quite possible, to be honest. Waste of money, do NOT recommend to anyone.
Summary: Look at the picture of this headset very carefully. Note that the molded plastic that wraps around your ear from the head phones appears to have a VERY narrow opening. This results in the plastic frame pinching you as it wraps around your ears. The pain becomes more noticeable the longer you wear them. Additionally, the wrap-around plastic piece has numerous design flaws that result in other painful experiences while wearing the product.
Summary: I tend to prefer the behind the ear design, but this headset is extremely uncomfortable to the point of being painful on the ears after wearing them for a short amount of time. Also the microphone is way too long. I have to contort the wire in a strange pattern to shorten it enough to be in the right place. No pros other than some sound can go in and come out of it.
Summary: My voice sounds tinny with the black foam piece on it. I keep having to repeat myself because no one can hear me. I also have to hold the microphone up because it doesn't stay in place. Not worth the price. Do not recommend.
Summary: If you own a MAC don't buy this. I'm even annoyed that I had to give it one star. I bought one of these, opened the impossible plastic package to just "plug in and go". I plugged it into my Mac Mini, and the sound worked fine, fairly clear, but I had no joy with the mic. After messing around with different settings for an hour or so I decided to try it in my GF's laptop, a MacBook Pro, again nothing, it appeared the mic is broken.
Summary: Although the title was (apparently) changed to no longer claim it was USB, it certainly doesn't say it was analog only. The photo doesn't even show the part that plugs into the computer. There is no way to tell from the photo or description what this product is. Only USB will serve my purposes and so now I'm stuck seeing if I can go through the hassle of mailing a return. Wish I'd have just bought it at a local store. This would be over already.
