5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Firstly, this is my first review I've ever done on newegg after years and thousands of dollars spent. I mainly chose this headset because I will admit I am a Razer fanboy. I have had many other brands of headsets including Razer in the past and they just couldn't last. So this time I went looking for something a little more durable.. something.. metal. Out of the ones I game across this one had the best price and met the standards I was looking for.

The packaging was pretty sweet. Once out of the box I adjusted them to my head. The adjusters have to be loosened to make fit, which is awesome because I was always have to readjust my old ones. Once you tighten them back up, they will NOT move. So after getting them adjusted I put them on and tested some bass intensive songs to try them out. Really impressed with the sound quality. The mic was also really clean, very very very minimal white noise. I also noticed that once you put these on all sound that was going on around you no longer exists. My house was quiet at the time so I didn't notice until I realized my wife was yelling at me. Primary reason these are getting 5 eggs!

Cons: No inline volume control can get annoying but that's the part I broke on my last Razer headset and the reason I had to get a new one. So it might save me in the long run.

Other Thoughts: If you move your head from shoulder to shoulder you can head a slight tink noise. It's the stop that keeps the headphones from fully rotating around full circle. Just something to consider. Price is well worth it in my opinion. If you don't buy this headset, at least buy something well built and preferably metal.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Headset

Pros: all in a run on sentence these headphones are great had them for over a year now and still working like if i just unboxed them i mainly got them because they are made of metal which is stronger and less chance of cracking and eventually snapping like the previous headphones i owned, another plus is that it doesn't have an inline voice control and the reason why i say that is that where the inline control is the cable bends at the joint causing it to eventually cause the line to break *happened to me*.The mic is great,the option to detach is a plus overall these headphones are perfect.

Cons: non,but since its been a year,one of the ear cups leather lining has opened up at the seam so the memory foam/cushion is exposed but not affecting me negatively

5 out of 5 eggsgreat design

Pros: I bit the bullet on these because I thought they looked amazing. The design compliments all the basic features of a headset and executes with solid construction consisting of a lot of metal. I was a bit worried the cord might be a bit fragile, but it is a bit thicker than I thought it would be. If you treat it properly I don't see it becoming a problem. The support for the mic allows you to place it exactly where you want it and reasonably protects it as well.

Overall, the helicopter headset design looks amazing in a black/silver/green colorway. The sound quality is great for gaming and I have no complaints in that department.

Cons: No in-line volume adjuster, but not that big of a deal. I'd prefer a straight line to my jack anyway.

5 out of 5 eggsRazer BlackShark

Pros: Comfortable,
Noise cancelling,
Can be used as a computer headset or unplugged from the splitter and Used with my ipod,
Removable mic,
Awesome design!
I don't even feel this headset on once I adjusted to my head it has the most adjustment I've used so far, I can game for hours and my headset doesn't smash my ears.
Very well made.

Cons: The only thing I can think of is the short cord but it's not really short my box is on the floor so that's part of it

Other Thoughts: I think this is the best headset I've had so far, I had driver issues with usb headset before and that steered me away from them, when I'm gaming I want as little running in the background as possible as bugs do seem to occur from sound drivers and games.

4 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Great sound, though I'm not an audiophile so take that with a grain of salt.

Detachable mic is nice, the build quality is outstanding. Mic sounds good too.

I've had it for awhile now and it still looks new out of the box, so the quality is supreme in my opinion.

COMFY! I wear this thing for 4-8 hours and I only get slight discomfort in that amount of time, and I mean SLIGHT.

It does what it's intended to do, good sound in games, and even better sound for music. *note this not a 5.1 or 7.1 channel headset but it works well either way*

Cons: The one gripe I have about this headset is the cord. Some people say it's too short, but I don't have such issues. My only concern is the quality of the cord, it's rubberized, and feels high quality, but I regularly find myself looking down making sure my chair doesn't roll over the cord, because I don't want it to get damaged.

Other Thoughts: You might think there's better headsets out there for the money, and that this is overpriced for what you're getting. This may or may not be true, but going over the pros once again, this has great build quality, good input/output, is very comfortable and practical, and it looks cool. If you care about that sort of stuff, then you get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggsBuilt like a tank

Pros: Steel
Swing arm mic instead of flimsy snake
Detachable mic boom

Cons: No in-line control

Other Thoughts: Best headset I've ever owned.
I've had many plastic headsets from big-name makers (Razer, Turtle Beach, etc.), all have broken fairly quickly with every-day use. This headset has lasted over six months so far and is still in brand new condition.
I also love the (adjustable tension) swing-arm mic - you move it away... it stays away, move it in... it stays exactly where you place it.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat sound & comfort, bad cords

Pros: The sound was great had no issues with sound.
Comfort is unbeatable
Microphone quality is great
Looks very nice (in my opinion)

Cons: Ive had 2 Razer headphones including these and they have had the same issue.
The quality of the cords are terrible, the wire in these are very fragile and the rubber coating may seem nice but does not protect the wires inside. out of no where the cord will make it so that I will have weird audio glitches and cuts doing anything, if I want it to stop I must position the cord a certain way but it will never stay fixed for more than 10 minutes. Plus cord length is very short.

Other Thoughts: Great quality of mic,sound and comfort but they really need to fix the cord issue that has happened to me both in these and the razer electras.

3 out of 5 eggsNot worth $120

Pros: this headset has some pretty good build quality and it looks nice. the sound isolation is good so it will help reduce outside noise.

Cons: this headset is overpriced for what you get. there is no inline controllers. there's a lot of bass and i had a hard time hearing the people i was playing with. sound isolation makes it hard to hear yourself talk and i changed my settings to hear myself through the headset, which i could but there was a delay from when i spoke and when i heard my voice.

Other Thoughts: sure it's looks awesome, but not worth $120. the sound isolation is good, but i don't like how i can't hear myself talk. it's like talking when you have earplugs in. there's a lot of bass which can make it hard to hear your friends when playing. if this headset had a volume and bass inline controller it might be worth it.
