5 out of 5 eggsTHE BEST HEADPHONES!!!

Pros: I own second pair of this headphones, it was painful to find them online, now they are available again on newegg!
I've tried many headphones (e.x. Astro (is good, but requiters an extra sound card that supports Doulby techs), TurtleBeach - horrible mic and design!)
excellent mic (silence technology)
Good sound quality
Excellent for FPS games!
Solid surround experience.
USB.
Very soft

Cons: Not really durable over 1 year!))) Manage to break on me once (but no doubt I'm a hardcore gamer, I play 5hr+ a day)

Other Thoughts: Hope they started to sell them again!

5 out of 5 eggsI love these things

Pros: Sound is great, support is great too. I had a problem with my USB basically falling apart. I use these a lot and headsets aren't very durable to begin with. Anyways, creative was easy to work with via email and within a couple weeks I had a brand new pair! Thanks Creative!

Cons: They did break, but I have never owned a pair of headsets that didnt. It happens.

Other Thoughts: I think my next step is wireless, if it weren't for the usb cable, I probably never would have had them break in the first place.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome, some issues

Pros: -Awesome Bass
-Flexible and versatile
-Comfortable Earmuffs

Cons: -Cheap/Terrible USB connector
-Top of the headset is uncomfortable, leaves an imprint on the top of your head. Also pulls on your hair, can create migraines.
-Terrible cord, it gets twisted so easily

Other Thoughts: Only reason I took an egg away is due to the headset being uncomfortable, other than that it is a great headset.

1 out of 5 eggsAwesome while it lasted

Pros: Amazing sound quality for the price
Very comfortable (I game for at minimum 4 hour sessions, never makes my ears sore)
Great microphone quality
All in all a great headset

Cons: Very, VERY flimsy. The USB connector broke on me within 2 days, had to fenagle the connector at an angle just to get it to connect. Been putting up with it for the last year, and it finally completely quit out on me. The internals of the connector are shoddy, the problem, come to find out, was with the souldering on the chip. It came completely undone.
I love the sound quality but looks like this is the last creative product I'm going to buy until they upgrade their manufacturing standards.

4 out of 5 eggsSpend the extra 30 for 5.1/7.1

Pros: These headphones sound extremely good! Great bass, decent highs. A very good balance for listening to loud music.

Cons: -1 Egg for it not being a true surround headset. In my opinion a waste of a good X-fi chip.

Other Thoughts: This is what you need if your onboard sound is a problem. Mine was extremely quiet. This headset has its own sound card with its own louder volume. That was a plus for me.

4 out of 5 eggsOuch

Pros: AMAZING sound
Great Durability, has lasted a while
Great microphone sound
Pretty much a great headset if you can get over the fact that.....CONS

Cons: No comfort AT ALL in the top part of this headset. Notice it's thin? Well it is, and it LITERALLY wore a spot down into my head....now I have a deep imprint in the middle of my dang head. If you can get past this then it is a fine product

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Headset that blows competition away - 2nd purchase

Pros: Sound quality beats all others. My son broke my first pair, so I bought some famous ninja turtle brand. That was a mistake. I immediately purchased these again. Bass is nice, virtual surround sound is awesome, and mic is great with the option to cancel background noise. They fit comfortably on my head and around my ears.

Cons: Made of plastic that a 2 year old can break,,,but, it is your own fault for leaving them out for that to happen.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend these to anyone. Virtual surround sound is great for games such as Battlefield 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops, Left for Dead 1/2. You will not be disappointed with the quality at this price.
