1 out of 5 eggsGood Riddance

Pros: Good sound, even up to the very end when it's falling apart and refusing to take further repairs. Even the mic sounded good. My teamspeak and Skype friends never complained about the quality of sound from my mic, and I never had a problem with it or my headset cutting out.

As far as quality of sound goes, Creative hit it out of the park. Unfortunately, that's ALL this does.

Cons: HORRIBLE construction, cheap inflexible plastics that break if you look at them wrong.

Uses two USB ports continuously after the non-replaceable internal battery inevitably fails and requires a constant charge.

Very poor range (20 feet if you're lucky) for an RF product, probably owing to the fact that the transmitter is a USB device the size of a thumb drive.

Other Thoughts: This thing broke within its first week. But there was no returns policy and the extended warranty spent 20 minutes verifying that I even owned it before they decided that the break was my fault for attempting to use the headset (typical...dunno why I bothered with the extended warranty in the first place).

However, since I'm good with epoxy and bad with shelling out for replacements on things that still technically work, I repaired it. Then it broke in a new place. I fixed that, too. Then another place, another. The connectors between the beret and earpieces just disintigrated, and by the end of their lifetime, I had basically rebuilt that entire section out of duct tape and epoxy.

The internal battery decided it wouldn't take a charge anymore after about five or six months, and from there in, I had it continuously hooked up to the recharger port, so it became a wired wireless headset.

After nine months, the internal cable between the earpieces finally decided to give out.

2 out of 5 eggsQuality of Construction

Pros: Decent input and output quality.

Cons: Cheap Plastic, Charger input on earphone broke off inside and stopped working. Mic Would spin in socket and was not well designed. Heavy and uncomfortable.

Other Thoughts: I contacted the company to get a replacement mic and explained the problem, they asked me to take pictures and email them back, did, never received any contact after that. I bought Corsair after and have never looked back, love Corsair products and support team.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Purchase I've ever made.

Pros: This headset is amazing for the money. I've had 2 now, the first only breaking because I stepped on it. This headset is very durable with great sound. The mic quality is only average though. The sound has many adjustment options in the software and is very high quality. It can also get quite loud.

Cons: The mic quality is not top notch, but is fine for teamspeak and such. I'd never use this for formal use though.

Other Thoughts: Best purchase I've ever made, couldn't get a better deal for the money.

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

3 out of 5 eggsOk for the money

Pros: The wireless has great range. I was able to walk away from my computer in the basement and still hear things on the main floor and the 2nd floor of the house. Audio was ok, nothing fancy but at the same time better than some cheapo headphones. The battery life was also very good usually around 8-10 hours.

Cons: I have 2 sets of these one for myself and one for the Mrs. On mine the mini usb charging port broke off inside the housing. Since I'm not proficient in surface mount soldering this made them essentially paperweights. The Mrs. set still works great but we have been taking even extra care not to jostle the charge port. The audio quality is also fairly average, nothing special.

Other Thoughts: Overall these were pretty decent. Good bang for the buck, but for a few dollars more you could probably do much better with something else.

2 out of 5 eggsGood and bad

Pros: Great sound quality at a good price.
Control panel has excellent soundmixing and lighting options and presets.
Voice changer controls are a good source of comedy when your feeling silly.

Cons: Didn't last like I wanted them too.
After about 3 months(Bought 2/13/2014)started getting random disconnect/reconnects.
Finally bit the dust entirely around the first of october.
You get what you pay for sometimes I guess.

Other Thoughts: Would have gotten less eggs if it hadn't been for how good they were While they worked!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: I want to keep this review/comment simple. I think that this wireless headset is a really good headset. It sounds great and it's easy to use. Just plug, download the driver, and you're good to go. It has a solid feel to it and you can tell that Sound Blaster has quality in mind. For the price, it's totally a steal. The detachable mic is such a convenient idea. I don't have to have it sticking in my when I don't use it. The interchangeable LED is pretty cool as well. 16 million colors to choose from. All in all, I'm really satisfied with this.

Cons: I'm pretty sure this product has it's own flaws. Nothing is perfect. However, I don't have any issue with this personally. At least nothing that major to be deducting an egg from this review.

Other Thoughts: I've read reviews from my fellow owners and users of this headset regarding the foam padding being too hard. I do agree with it. It can get a little uncomfortable during long periods of use and abuse. However, the sound is just too good that I can personally overlook this flaw. LOL....

For the quality and the price, it's definitely worth a try.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Excellent sound quality, Nice removable mic, wireless,excellent battery life. I have had many wired headsets in my time and I am apparently rather careless because I have ruined the cords or the plug on every single one, this cordless headset is wonderful

Cons: As folks have mentioned it is a tad heavy and at first with extended use it did give me a bit of a headache but it did not take long to get used to it and now I wear them for hours and hours on end without difficulty sometimes I forget I have them on when I am not even listening to anything LOL One person was talking about actually developing an indent in there head from wearing these, I don't think so most likely your head wasn't perfectly smooth to begin with.

Other Thoughts: I love these headphones so glad to be free of that stinking miserable cord WOOOOOOO freedom

2 out of 5 eggsGreat until it broke =/

Pros: - Amazing sound quality
- The headset software features is really good
- Plug and play

Cons: - Really quiet mic
- Firmware suppose to fix the quiet mic issue but instead it installation failed half way and bricked my headset in first day of the usage, its completely unresponsive at this point.
