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:
