3 out of 5 eggsStudent in Networking Administration

Pros: Beautiful headset in how it looks, how it sounds and how it performs. This being my first real gaming headset with an audio enhancement blew my mind with the difference in sound quality. The THX software you can download for the headset from the creative site was easy to use and even came with an audio test video from The Lich King expansion from WoW which performed a perfect test subject.

Cons: Like most USB wireless headsets, the UBS stick for the headset is somewhat long. Running on a desktop is no problem, but running on a laptop for travel puts the device at a severe risk of total failure since you can't just use a 3.5 connection as a backup. That is what happened to me, at least. I tried to contact the help desk to just receive another USB piece but I just got an email about a month later telling me that they got my request and then another month later saying that the only way to get another is if I mail a check in of about 40 dollars (with tax) and waited for them to mail me the piece. I haven't dealt with a lot of help desk purchases, but never have I received instruction that said I could only purchase with a check. Needless to say I didn't do it anyways because I only payed about $80 for the headset on sale.

Another point is that the battery seemed somewhat buggy. It would either not hold a charge despite being plugged in all night, or seem to register it was plugged in. This happened at around three to four months after owning the device. Other than that, no complaints.

Other Thoughts: Over all, if you are looking for a decently priced headset that performs great for a desktop computer, go with this headset. If you are looking for something durable that you can travel with, I wouldn't trust it since one gentle, accidental uppercut from the guy on the plane beside me shattered the plastic and even cracked the circuit board.
Also know that battery bugs are highly possible.

Some may see it harsh that I rate 3/5, but durability should be something in mind for all products. The design of laptops are partially to blame along with other factors, but I have UBS flash drives that are half the size of this and made of metal that were less then $40.

3 out of 5 eggsWork for Three months and then...

Pros: What can you not like about this headset. Wireless is great, detachable mic is awesome. Sound is excellent.

Cons: Worked for about three months. Then started having problems with the connection between the charger and the headset. First it wouldn't charge unless it was not touched. Then sound altogether stopped.

Other Thoughts: This was the best headset I have ever had, until I started having problems three months down the road. Almost makes me think that it was not worth the hassle.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat for a while

Pros: Nice quality, pretty flashy headset lights

Cons: Heavy, hot, stupid power level logic. My biggest problem with this headset since day one is that it apparently will refuse to stay on if the battery is dead, EVEN IF THE CHARGER IS PLUGGED IN. Without delving into the wonderful world of expletives, I cannot properly express how mad this makes me. When my headset battery runs out and I plug it into a wall adapater, I expect it to stay on since it has a constant supply of power from the wall outlet, This is NOT the case. I spent $160 on this headset and I actually regret doing so. Granted, a lot of the reason for grabbing it was the free game time card dropped the effective price to $130, but still, I would definitely not buy this headset again. I also had to RMA it twice for various malfunctions over the time the warranty was valid. I do not enjoy buying what equates to a high performance, high price car and getting this kind of sad performance and quality.

Other Thoughts: The LED light colors to indicate charge status would be handy if they were not on the back of the headset where you can't see it while wearing. Flashing a red LED at me to tell me the battery is dying does not do me much good if I can't see it. A certain other manufacturer embedded a tiny red LED in the microphone boom, which was visible while wearing. Such a great feature that this expensive headset failed to include. Also, the removable microphone was at first a potential perk, but I ended up quickly losing the microphone and had to pay a ridiculous amount of money for a replacement. Swivel boom, anyone?

2 out of 5 eggsNot 100% worth it

Pros: Sound Quality is good, they're comfortable, and the colors and voice mods are fun to play with.

Cons: -Randomly disconnects, and then reconnects 2-3seconds later
-If the USB gets blown on, touched, etc...disconnection...
-As others have said, the plastic is breaking along the slider
-After the first month or 2, battery life is terrible.

Other Thoughts: Overall, especially if you game quite often, DO NOT get these, go for the WIRED version instead. The cons just make these way to much of a hassle, and really make me want to throw the entire headset across the room almost everyday of the week...buying something different soon, myself.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent..

Pros: Good sound and mic pick-up

Cons: The wireless version's battery life is terrible i end up having mine plugged in more than unplugged and even when its plugged in the battery goes out. Big and clunky as well.

Other Thoughts: The Wired version is probably the way to go if you want this headset

2 out of 5 eggsSounds Amazing, but Horrible Construction Quality

Pros: For the the first few weeks, I was in love with them. They sounded great, were relatively comfortable, customizable colors for the lights was pretty fun.

Cons: At least once an hour, they'd drop their wireless signal and re-establish it again after a couple seconds. Not a huge deal, but it was pretty annoying.

Battery life isn't great, I'd estimate I'd get about 4-5 hours total before having to plug them back in to charge. The usb plug was also loose, so it was difficult to use them plugged in without the cable falling out.

The biggest con is the're made out of extremely cheap plastic. There's a very thin piece of plastic used as the extension, and it snapped in the right side after about a month. I glued it and would only use the left side to extend to fit over my head. About three months later, the left side snapped as well rendering them pretty much unusable now.

Other Thoughts: If they had used metal instead of plastic in the headband, and had a better usb connection, these would be a nice set of headphones.

2 out of 5 eggsFragile

Pros: They don't hurt my head, and my ears don't get sweaty like with some headsets. They're actually not that bad except for the biggest con.

Cons: The connection piece between the top band and the ear pieces is tiny and will break easily. Superglue really is the only option if you want to use them.

2 out of 5 eggsdecent quality sound in a low quality frame

Pros: good, deep bass, nothing actually bad about the speakers.

Fits my large head reasonably well with one caveat (see cons)

Pretty good battery life for what thats worth.

Cons: Software will sometimes (every other month) delete your audio settings entirely.

Entirely shoddy materials used to build it. A mcdonalds toy has more points of articulation and can take more abuse. I have gone through 3 of these in the period of a month, one not even lasting an entire 24 hours. The extending arms are made if very thin plastic that cracks and snaps off completely if you have a large head, or if you wear these more than once a day. Since the last one I had set replaced was the supposed "final replacement" I used liquid plastic to reinforce the extension arms at the right size for my head, which, while it fixed that problem, put the point of failure at the very small rotation points of the ear cups, which subsequently broke and had to be glued on in one position.

Microphone quality leaves something to be desired as its not noise cancelling, and it's "removable" which means it will fall out or the jack part in the headset proper will get dirty.

Other Thoughts: The headset for music and sounds are perfect. Decent battery that almost lives an entire day if you charge it each night. For this it gets two eggs, but since they manufactured it with such low quality materials I cannot advise anyone to purchase this.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat at first, Problems now

Pros: Decent sound
Very comfortable to wear
Detactable microphone is nice for when I don't need it

Cons: Short wireless battery life: I find I have them plugged in more often than wireless since the battery dies after being wireless for about 2 hours)

Breaks easy: The plastic that holds the earpiece is very thin and even with superglue to repair the break, they still feel brittle.
Connectivity Issues: Sound is constantly cutting in and out both wired and wireless

EXPENSIVE: Cost way more than they are worth. Purely a vanity/collector's item once the battery starts having issues. I expected more than a year use out of something I spend $150 on

Short Charge Cable: Even connecting it to the front of my PC, it still feels short and gets tangled on my armrest

Other Thoughts: The headset worked great when I first got them but now it seems like they are nothing but a headache. The biggest issue I have is the sound constantly cuts out and cuts back in and at times it will cut out and stay that way. I've had to reinstall drivers and redo the pairing of the set to my PC several times to try and resolve the issues over the past couple months and now I'm just setting the set to the side and going to invest in different ones.
