2 out of 5 eggsBroke within 4 months.

Pros: Sound was good for the price point.

Cons: After fairly light use and well care, one of the headphones snapped off 4 months after purchase.

Other Thoughts: Tied to RMA this item and Cooler Master customer support has been a joke up to this point. Goods were received 2 months ago, so when I called to follow up it took hours for someone to answer the phone. It would just ring and ring then send you to voice mail.

Once I finally got someone on the phone they stated the item has been discontinued and that my options were to continue to wait on a set to come in from the warehouse, or that they could send me a different item. All I need is headphones and the resolution is not acceptable so I asked to speak to a supervisor.

The supervisor placed me on hold so he could check the warehouse and low and behold, magically he found a pair. He stated they would be added for my account and shipped the next morning and that I would receive tracking info.

But, 3 days later I still have not received a tracking number, and am playing the fun game of trying to get someone on the phone again. Even tried to use their Support Chat, of which it's been "Connecting me to an agent" for over 45 minutes.

* 3/16/16 - Follow up - The RMA pair they finally sent out have now broken with the exact same issue.

3 out of 5 eggsA bit disappointed

Pros: Long USB cable, Detachable (gooseneck) microphone, rotating speakers. cloth foam padding. The speakers fit nicely around my ears..

Cons: I was disappointed with the sound quality, I expected better. The bass doesn't produce a clean sound, sounds muffled. The speakers rotate inwards, instead of outwards. Ideally you want to be able to wear them around your next with the speakers facing out. Instead they rotate towards your body. The microphone, while detachable, does not swivel. The volume control box heavy and is on a short line from the headset, about 15 inches. The volume control box is designed to clip on to an article of clothing, too short to sit on the desk.

Other Thoughts: The speakers are amplified though the USB port. The headset will not work with portable devices. While I did try it with my smartphone the mic worked but the speakers did not.

The headset is a bit heavy which gives it a solid feel.

I purchased these with a mail in rebate, if I had known about the con issues I probably would have gone with a different brand.

Manufacturer Response:
