1 out of 5 eggsDesigned to break

Pros: Sound is acceptable and the headphones are reasonably comfortable--well until they break.

Cons: The design of the headband s such that it is not if, but when. The when being when the cheap plastic headband snaps. The headband will snap in the exact same place as it has for hundreds, if not thousands of users. Once the plastic snaps--sure you can hand the headphones off the top of your head, but they will never be comfortable again.

Plantronics has always been my go to for headphones. My last two purchases have a slightly higher build quality than Rosewill. My assumption is the management direction has changed at Plantronics from a producer of quality to one that focus on quantity.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Sound acceptable

Cons: Short cord, software lacking any adjustments other than enabling and disabling Dolby

Other Thoughts: The cord length is short for my needs and should have paid more attention to cord length specs.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat sound CRITICAL FLAWS

Pros: sound quality

Cons: Day one, I stream to twitch and hitbox so when i got these i was happy with the sound and recording quality. I noticed that the volume control placed behind the ear would rattle with the slightest head movement. two other streamer friends confirmed the same issue. plantronics warranty department stated that i could RMA them, however the duration of this would put my streaming on halt as this is the only headset i own. This can mean a drastic decrease in viewers and cripple a stream. I ended up just dealing with it.
13 months later my headset has snapped on both sides directly above the pivot points for the ear cups. on closer examination this section is very thin plastic, measuring 2.42mm thick. that kind of build quality is specifically designed for failure. Myself and 2 other friends all have had these headsets snap in the same location while babying them. i take great care of my electronics and expect them to last more than 13 months. since it was outside of 1 year they will not replace their design flaw, but offered me to turn mine in and i could buy a replacement at $40.80. The cost of shipping with usps with tracking (cheapest you'll find) would be around $15 adding that to the $40.80 will place you at/around $65.80, $3 more than buying it new. In addition i'd have to wait for them to verify the headsets are infact the 780s and then ship me another set. So adding insult to injury, you get to pay more and wait much longer, fantastic deal right?
I have spent many years building products, testing them, and making sure that it wasn't something you'd need to replace. In the industry if you make products one of the tactics to keep people buying is to develop a product that is designed to flaw. this thin stress point (again 2.42mm thick at a point of high stress, using plastic) is a key to such designs. It's a very shady practice and one i'm shocked to see from a company like plantronics design team. I run a very successful streaming umbrella. I personally stream to both twitch and hitbox, run a stream retweeting service, very active on forums for live streaming, and help run gaming/streaming forums. I think plantronics should think more about how far a single person can reach to their market of people before trying to swindle them out of more money.
Best part is, i did a review on their site, confirmed my review, waited 1hr and it hasn't been published. If you look on other sale sites, there are a lot of 1 star ratings on this headset, yet there isn't a single one on their site. Cause for concern when a company doesn't permit posting 1 star reviews.

Other Thoughts: -- update: Tuesday, January 06, 2015 --
they denied my review on their site and an official email was dispatched saying i needed to read their review guidelines.

5 out of 5 eggsComfortable

Pros: If you have big ears, these are great. Other headphones hurt my ears after a while because they're pressing down on them, but these go around your ears so they're much more comfortable. Also the padding on the ear pads and the part that goes over your head is comfortable. Sound quality seems good to me, but I'm not an audio connoisseur, so take it with a grain of salt.

Cons: None yet. I see all the other reviews saying they break easily, but mine haven't yet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat headset

Pros: Excellent sound quality
Very comfortable, soft ear cups
Feels solid and durable
Looks pretty good
Surround sound

Cons: The cord is a little short for me, seeing as it's on the left hand side of the headset, and my computer is down on the right hand side, had to run a cable up to the top of my desk to make it reach.

Other Thoughts: Picked it up on sale, absolutely worth the money at the time. I'm sure it'd be worth it at full price too.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent for the price!

Pros: The best thing about this headset, In my opinion is how comfortable they are. I wear these all day without any music or games playing because I am browsing the web and forget they are on. I only start noticing fatigue after several hours (4-8) on my ears.

The sound is very clear even with maxed volume.

Cons: Biggest con is a lack of bass out of the box and no equalizer to adjust the sound coming from the headset.

Other Thoughts: If you decide to take the plunge and purchase this headset, do yourself a favor and download a system wide EQ. I use Peace EQ for Equalizer APO. Peace is a Graphical Representation for Equalizer APO. A quick google search for "Peace EQ" will get you where you need to be. After that's installed this headset really starts to shine.

4 out of 5 eggsGood quality, but fragile

Pros: The sound quality is great, and the built in mic works amazing, the ear cups fit my head and ears.

Cons: The headphones themselves are exteramly fragile. I was up one night and pulled them off my desk and both ear muffs cracked and fell, leaving only the wires to hold them together.

Other Thoughts: This is a great head set for the price, you just need to take extra care of them
