3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Great audio quality, strong bass, excellent microphone quality, microphone is easy to adjust and won't move about when you move your head, decent price.

Cons: Terribly uncomfortable (my ears start throbbing and hurting like hell after several hours use)

Surround sound mechanism requires batteries, making it heavy, therefore tugging at your headset which is SO annoying. The actual cord is awkwardly thin compared to the clunky surround sound device. I would also like to point out that when I enable the surround sound, it mostly enhances the right side of the head set and so I don't use it, rendering it useless. It's a stupid gizmo.

Other Thoughts: I suggest you buy a good sound card and another head set as opposed to this weak knock off. This is the poor man's version of surround sound.

3 out of 5 eggsOverall

Pros: Comfortable for the first 2 hours. Very nice noise canceling, with a snug fit like this its quite hard to hear other people you might have in the room with you (good thing).

Cons: I have had this for over 2 years now, I bought them when they first came out because of the SRS they were well over One Hundred Dollars at the time. After having it for so long I hardly want to use them anymore because they become very uncomfortable and would cause my ears to hurt after 2 or more hours of gaming, so i would have to remove them for maybe 10 mins to let my ears breath. Also they are so snug that my ears would prespire and so my ears would be a little moist (nasty feeling). The 3.5mm plug is actually bent slightly now, because the cord was so short that i could hardly move without it pulling on teh plug. The microphone would actually pick up the game sound/music i was playing while i was talking on the headset (either via vent, skype, ingame, anything). My sound card simulates Surround sound better than the head set did, and it doesn't require batteries! Dont buy the Simulated Surround Sound stuff its not worth it. Buy a decent Sound Card that does instead.

Other Thoughts: I would not ever consider buying this product again. Im looking for better now, and am considering teh new Fadelity gaming head set from Creative, they offer with there card surround sound support with there card that has software enabled surround sound that gives you the feel of having Front center rear Channels. Im hoping the Velvet hear covers will be more comfortable, as i see from the reviews.

3 out of 5 eggsOK, but hurts my ears

Pros: it sounds pretty nice. can't say im an audiophile, but im pretty satisfied with the sound it puts out. headphones are always cool for games.

Cons: cord is a little too short for my tastes. the random volume control box thing is annoying. it's relatively heavy and makes the cord seem even shorter.

the headphones also hurt my ears like crazy. i can wear them for about ten minutes before my ears start hurting. very uncomfortable and annoying.

the felt stuff on the inside of the ear-cups are also starting to wear out. probably from the shape of my ear.

Other Thoughts: if I had smaller ears or didn't have glasses, it would probably fit much better. but as it is, it's too uncomfortable for me to want to buy another. plus the battery housing is just weird and unwieldy imo.

that said, im satisfied with them for the time being since my regular speakers are utter cr4p and refuse to work properly.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: They were comfortable to wear.

Cons: The SRS is totally worthless. Having it turned on only distorted the bass response. Besides, any good sound card can produce the same effect in headphones without it. I had them hooked up to a Creative Soundblaster XFi Extreme Audio sound card. Like others, I felt they were not loud enough or needed an amplifier.

Other Thoughts: I have an Altec Lansing AHS202 headset that I had planned on replacing with this headset. That is, until I realized that the AHS202 BLEW this headset out of the water. It was like night and day. The AHS202 is by far the best headset I have owned in the past 4 years.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Headset for price

Pros: Excellent set of headphones, good surround sound. Great for FPS games like Counter Strike. Good Reliability.

Lol nothing related to the product but props to newegg for fast delivery. I ordered with UPS 3day ground and I got 2day air for free lol.

Cons: Goes thru AAA batteries pretty fast if SRS left on. Headphones take a little getting used to in the beginning. Mic is good but can actually be to sensitive and picks up a lot of background noise.

Other Thoughts: I had this headset for 2 years...It wasnt till about 15months that the right ear went out, and after about 18 months the mic boom started to break. This was by far the best headset Ive ever owned and the reason I have my 2nd one coming now to replace this one.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked great for me.

Pros: Great head set, very confortable, got me through a year of gaming very well.

Cons: Mines nearing the end of its life time, Watch out tho the wires that connect to the volume and surround sound control come out easily if you drop the sound control and it yanks. Sucks AAA batteries down fast.

Other Thoughts: Lost the foam ball on the end and the foam on my right ear ripped, Like I said, its life is almost over. Remember to turn off the surround sound before leaving it!

3 out of 5 eggsThey Work

Pros: I like the sound. Better than my desktop speakers. Build quality seems adequate for the price you pay.

Cons: People are saying these are uncomfortable. The only complaint I have is, my ears start getting hot...just need to pull them off for about 30 seconds and air em out.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Clear sound, thanks to gold-plated plugs. Nice, large microphone.

Cons: Extremely uncomfortable! My ears were in agony every time I wore it. Microphone boom wears out within a few weeks.. eventually it just settles below your chin and doesn't want to stay up. SRS totally useless.. from my perspective it just seemed to make everything louder.. not make it more "surround." Wire insulation began to strip away in multiple places - without trauma.

Other Thoughts: I paid $xx for this headset at my local electronics store - I returned it within three weeks because the insulation just wore away and caused a short-circuit. Hard to understand how these guys decided to make the SRS powered by a measly AAA battery - as opposed to using computer power. The people at Altec Lansing apparently have small ears - as both headsets (this and a behind-the-head one) I have bought from them are painful to wear. My advice: don't get it. There are much cheaper headsets that offer better surround sound quality.
