3 out of 5 eggsHeaset

Pros: Fairly comfortable though some extended periods can cause upper ear discomfort. Microphone swivels out of the way when not needed.

Cons: Microphone is very quiet, towards the end of it's life even shouting wouldn't register on some audio command lead programs. The lighted "control box" very randomly stays lit consistently or flashes rather annoyingly.

Other Thoughts: Bought this headset for around $20, for that price it wasn't such a bad deal. Sound was pretty good and served my purpose but I have finally learned my lesson on cheap USB headsets. You either wear them long enough for a wire to come loose and loose audio in one or both ears (cheap Logitech headsets) or some other issue crops up with the USB connectivity (this pair...will elaborate).

So these headsets serviced me well for a while but about 9 months of use I started having random USB connectivity problems. My first instincts where to blame drivers and Windows 8 but after doing everything imaginable (and finally fixing the problem by random). I really couldn't figure out what the issue was. When this happened again after a 1 year of use (a few months after the initial problem) I had finally realized it was the headphones themselves. A different problem with different results still related to the USB connectivity this time with no solution (at first sound would work till suddenly stopping, only continuing after replugging or manually disabling then re-enabling...then the computer just stopped recognizing the headset at all).

Long story short, if your like me and don't feel right (or can't afford) investing in a super expensive USB headset (alot range from $100 too $250+) I'm going to start taking my "cheap" headset chances on the "analog" 3.5mm jack ones. Just seems like there is less room for error.
