5 out of 5 eggsGreat Headset!

Pros: This headset sounds better and feels better than most other headsets that cost quite a bit more. I was hesitant to purchase it simply because of the price. I'm glad I pulled the trigger on this one. The mic quality is good and doesn't sound distorted. It did take a day or two to break in, but once it is, it feels very comfortable.

Cons: The only con I have is that the plastic makes it feel cheaper than it actually is.

Other Thoughts: I'm very happy with this headset and it performs better than expected. Movies, music, and games all sound realistic and immersive.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: Looks great
Adjustable sound on the ear cups
Good sound quality
Good mic quality
Ear cup swivel is nice
Blocks out a lot of sound, but allows you to be able to hear someone who's right by you.
Can fold up relativly small
Mic on/off switch it nice
Fits over my semi big ears
Volume control works great
Would buy again

Cons: If you have a big head it feels like it's squashing you for the first few times you wear them, but after a short while they're comfortable and you won't really know they're there.
I would love them more if they were wireless, but for the cost I can live without it.
Makes a rubbing sound on the ear cushion cover if you move your head a lot. Would have been better if lined with fabric instead of plastic covering.
Cord is too long if your computer is right beside you, but that can be fixed with a cloths pin.

Other Thoughts: When I first found this headset I was afraid of buying them since it only had one review, but when my old headset broke into two pieces I took the risk. I've had other headsets in the past that I paid the same amount for, but the mic quality wasn't as good as this set. If I had too, I would buy again.

-1 egg because rubbing sound, mentioned in the cons. It's bearable and doesn't really happen unless you move your head a lot, but can be annoying at times.

Bottom line, worth it.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's pretty decent.

Pros: The ear cups are very comfy and has nice sound quality. The surround sound is pretty good.

Haven't had any issues with the mic at all.

Cons: Eh.. They didn't add any cushioning to the top head piece. The plastic is just wrapped with some smooth rubbery piece.. Wearing it in the same spot for long periods of time can and probably will irritate that part of your head. I just move it around every so often.

The mic isn't really bendable for adjusting in front of your mouth. But it doesn't really reach either.

Other Thoughts: Being a turtle beach headset user, this mic is quite different. Don't like it all too much but I cant put it down as a con. Mainly if your headset breaks and you need a pretty cheap replacement with good quality sound this is a good choice.
