5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great price, sleek design, and good build quality. Sound through the headphones is clear, and the microphone picks up sound clearly as well. The headphones are a comfy fit and block out external sound well.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Headphones - Recommend Enhancements

Pros: I have never had a pair of headphone that sounded like this. These have an absolutely wonderful, rich sound. The lows, mids, and highs are all there. They are very comfortable as well.

Cons: I don't have any cons, but I do have some minor tweaks on how these could be even better.

Other Thoughts: I would like to recommend the following to the SteelSeries engineers in the next revision of these headphones:

1) Lengthen the metal upper support by about 1". I recommend this due to myself (and other reviewers from my reading) have larger heads than normal. I think by extending the metal upper supports, you would be able to encompass a greater range of head sizes.

2) Extend the length of the cord to 4 ft as opposed to 3 ft. I believe this would allow for greater mobility of the user without the need of the 6ft extension.

I did not mark these as cons because in the end, this is my personal preference and does not, in any way, take away from the quality of the headphones or their construction. I actually applaud SteelSeries for bringing a product like this to the market. Thank you, SteelSeries.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Deal

Pros: Very comfortable. Retractable mic is convenient. I only pull it out far enough to be next to my mouth. No need to pull the mic out and hang in front of my lips. Everyone is able to hear me loud and clear.
Comes with a cord extension if you need the extra length.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have had a few headsets in the past. My favorite was a $40 plantronics brand from best buy that lasted me for several years. I pwned many noobs in my 1.6 and CZ days with that headset. Over time the volume wheel caused the sound to short out which required I fiddle with it from time to time to make sure sound came out of both ears evenly.
That headset finally fell to my wrath and had to be replaced. It's been a few years since I had that one, but I definitely can tell this one is the best headset I've ever owned. the sound is very crisp and clear. Much easier to distinguish different sounds. Music and bass also very pleasing with this headset.
Good construction and quality feel.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for Gaming

Pros: Very comfortable. This was one of the main reasons I went with these. I got them on sale for a good price also.

I sometimes wear glasses when gaming so I wanted a pair that were comfortable.

Sound is very clear for gaming. Music it is decent. I'm not that picky about the sound as long as it is good. This pair has good sound. I have heard better, but those were $160.

Design allows for them to easily be hung on a hook or something to keep off of the desk.

Microphone is bendable and allowed to be pushed in. Pretty cool.

Cons: Big and probably unattractive/geeky =)

Other Thoughts: USB version is probably better, but a lot more money. I was just trying to get a decent pair around $50 that were comfortable and sounded good. I'm very glad I bought these.

A friend was at a small LAN with me 2 weeks ago and hated his. I had him try mine. He ran to the nearest store right after and bought them for the rest of the LAN lol.

4 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: -Good highs
-Stunning mids
-Powerful bass (but not totally overwhelming)
-Price
-Paint job
-Quality

Cons: -Only one, doesn't fit well in my head because my head is really weird shaped. It fits really well on normal people as some of my friends commented on how comfortable it is!

Other Thoughts: Best headset you can get, the mic is perfect for when I am issuing commands or making a video commentary.
I highly advise getting this headset!

3 out of 5 eggsSlick, good sound, but not perfect

Pros: -The sound is wonderful.
-Looks slick.
-Retractable mic is a nice perk and it doesn't seem to lessen the quality of the mic.
-Solid build makes me think this'll last me a while.

Cons: -Uncomfortable. Clings tightly to the head and makes me feel like I might get a headache after a while. There is no adjustable pieces, it's just a spring-based system that grabs your scalp too tight.
-Sound bleeds a tremendous amount. Anyone within 2 meters can hear my music.
-Cord is ridiculously long. Why would you want a cord this long? I have to keep 2/3's of it held with twist ties so I don't roll over it with my computer chair.

Other Thoughts: The cons are frustrating, but the headphones are still stellar. I'll keep them and enjoy them, but I would have kept looking for another pair if I knew what I know.

5 out of 5 eggslegit

Pros: It is super comfortable, easily adjustable, and the mic and speaker sound quality is great. The retractable mic is a great feature as well.

It comes with a 3ft chord length and a long extension as well. I especially like that I don't have an extra 5ft of chord getting tangled around things :)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I've owned many headsets over the years (usually logitech) but this is my first "next level" headset. After owning it for 7 weeks and gaming using skype regularly, it clearly performs better than anything I have ever used up to this point. It is super easy to adjust and conforms to the head quite nicely. In the past I have had ear soreness with extended gaming sessions, but so far have experienced none even after 8+ hours at a time.

5 out of 5 eggsKingston HyperX Edition

Pros: This set is incredible light weight allowing users to wear them for extended periods of time. The might, thus far, seems to be of good quality--crisp sound, no or little reverb and has a mute switch which is also convenient (however the switch is smooth making it somewhat difficult to use). The speakers of also seem to be better than average, but are certainly not Bose quality.

Cons: They are lightweight which may make them easily breakable. The cord splits in the middle becoming two cords which may become a hassle for anyone who does not know how to manage cables. The set does not support surround sound.

Other Thoughts: I bought this set nearly two months ago on sale for $29 and have no regrets. They were well worth it for general gaming and listening to music. However, there are far better set out there but not for the price I paid.
