GX-Gaming proudly presents a professional foldable gaming headset: the GX Lychas. This headset has swivel ear cups and a foldable design which lets players join any LAN party or game contest. In addition, its sound performance will also blow a player's mind. The 50mm neodymium driver units generate unbelievable deep bass. When you are playing a First Person Shooter, a bullet sounds like it's actually flying by you.
For the ear cups, there is an individual volume control for each one. You can turn down the volume on one side so you can hear sounds around you when you're playing in a game event. Lychas also has an in-line control box with a master volume control and microphone mute function. Players can choose the most convenient method according to theirs needs. The Lychas gaming headset performs superbly and folds up easily to be mobile.
Large, High-Definition Drivers
The Lychas features rich, full-range sound that puts you right in the game, thanks to high-definition 50mm audio drivers. Hear enemies sneaking up on you from behind, or locate your friends on the battlefield. The large Neodymium drivers deliver incredibly detailed, full-range sound that's like being right there in the middle of the firefight.
Individual Volume Controls
Individual ear cup volume controls put audio adjustments at your fingertips, without fumbling for an in-line cable mic or control box. This lets you quickly adjust to hear sounds around you--important at professional LAN gaming events. A master volume and mic control with mute button is also available for conventional use on the headset's cable.
Folds Up for Simple Transport
Powerful gaming features don't mean the Lychas is difficult to use. The boom mic is foldable just like the headphones, making it easy to fold up the headset for easy transport.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent headset, poor customer service.

Pros: Ear cushions are nice, good quality (stereo) sound.

Cons: Cord tends to ravel up despite my best attempts to straighten it.
Mute switch is loose and can be switched easily without knowing.
No cushioning on the top; extremely uncomfortable.
No surround sound.
Independent ear volume control is an unnecessary feature...

See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: This is a headset that is worth 30 bucks.

The mic on mine stopped working 39 days in, so I couldn't RMA it with Newegg. I attempted to contact Genius customer service and I have had no response. Very upset that the customer service is so poor.

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.
