1 out of 5 eggsCheap for a reason.

Pros: Inexpensive, decent cable length.

Cons: Broke right away where it holds the mic into the rest of the headset. So now it doesn't stay in place. Horrible sound quality... Even with zero background noise, everyone says it sounds like I'm in a jet turbine. The earpieces cover my ears but rather dig into the bottom of my earlobes and go up at an angle. Also, I have to jiggle the plug in and out of the port every minute or so because it gives of static.

Other Thoughts: You're better off spending a bit more because this headset is nearly useless.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked gine, until...

Pros: They were inexpensive

Cons: ...But they broke first one, then both sides within a short period after purchase. Obviously not designed for someone with a slightly above average sized head.

Other Thoughts: Wish I'd read the other reviews before purchasing

5 out of 5 eggsI love it

Pros: Its a great headset, it's comfortable. It's really affordable and they last forever. I have had them for over a year and still running healthy. They get constant abuse and use from my family and I. Great headset i really recommend it. =)

Cons: So far I haven't found anything wrong with it.

Other Thoughts: Maybe a padding over the mic. Because it sometimes picks up me breathing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price!

Pros: Decent sound, microphone actually works, cable length not too bad. For the price this is a great headset

Cons: Microphone can't be adjusted too well and has to be placed directly in front of your mouth in order for it to work.

Other Thoughts: Newegg rocks!!!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for what it is

Pros: 1. It's three dollars.
2. The headphones work.
3. The microphone works.

Cons: 1. It's three dollars..
2. Don't bang it around or else it will break.
3. PC only, unless your Mac includes a microphone jack, which many don't.

Other Thoughts: For normal internet voice chat such as IM and gaming, it's perfect. If you are in a business that needs many headsets for Skype or something, this is perfect. Decent quality microphone for normal internet voice. Really.

3 out of 5 eggsLow Price Works Well

Pros: If you need something cheap to use in PalTalk, MSN Messenger, Steam, YIM, Skype, or what ever this isnt a bad start. You get what you pay for but I have found that a lot of the cheaper headsets work just as well as the higher priced ones so for me they do just fine.

Cons: For the price none.

Other Thoughts: Works great with motherboard Asus P4P800E-Deluxe

2 out of 5 eggsBad Batch

Pros: it's great if it works

Cons: Bad workmanship. Got 2, one had a wire that was not soldered on so that the left speaker didn't work, the magnetic coil was not glued in so the left speaker didn't work in that one either.

Other Thoughts: I got one of these a couple of years ago and it worked great. I left that pair at a friends so I ordered 2 more recently. As the Cons section states it didn't work out so well.

2 out of 5 eggsWhy the heck not.

Pros: it costs 3.99

Cons: it costs more to ship it than it does to buy it.

Other Thoughts: i bought these as a joke christmas gift and they lasted about 3 weeks longer than anybody could have guessed for a whopping total of 3 weeks before the mic gave out.
