1 out of 5 eggsExtremely Painful

Pros: This is a very affordable headset, and I really like the portable design for traveling or keeping in a laptop bag.

Cons: Even at the extremely low price I paid, I would not recommend these to my worst enemy. It's a shame really, because I've used and enjoyed several Rosewill products; they generally give reasonably good quality for a very low price. However, this headset causes me extreme ear pain. Not discomfort. Sharp, agonizing pain, like my ears are being twisted and broken in some contraption full of heavy metal gears. I can't imagine how any human of adult size could willingly wear these more than once. I'm only 5'4", so I'm not huge by any means, but this headset presses so hard against my ears, I'm still having horrible pains more than half an hour after taking it off. I only wore it for a single hour-long gaming session. If I touch my ears right now, I get the same feeling as when I broke a finger when I was a little kid and I touched it, only this pain is worse. Seriously, I'm as cheap as the next guy, but even I can't put up with this. How other reviews could score this headset highly is beyond me. Did other people simply not wear it before reviewing? I'm not kidding, spend more on a more comfortable headset, even if you're strapped for cash. This headset is even worse than that gray, hard-looking Logitech a bunch of you might have seen like 8 years ago. It was really common several years back because it was widely available and pretty affordable, and my friends and I all had one. Those were extremely uncomfortable. This is like that, but much worse.

Other Thoughts: I bought this headset a little over a year ago because it was on sale and I wanted a more portable option for traveling or as a backup in case my primary gaming headset broke. Well, I never once used it until today when my primary headset finally gave out, and I can honestly say, it's not even comfortable enough to be used once per year.

5 out of 5 eggsValue play cans

Pros: Great sound. Great Mic, great value. High quality inexpensive headphones. Good for travel because of compact size and folding ability.

Cons: I don't believe at this price point considering the value is applicable.

Other Thoughts: I have been studying the works of James Bond and discovered there is no listening device better than the human mind.

3 out of 5 eggsGood set, but wires prone to disconnect

Pros: -Good sound and mic quality for the price point

Cons: -Wire comes loose inside the casing, at which point the connection will cut out if wire is slightly jostled and will soon after completely come loose.

Other Thoughts: I've owned 2 sets and both become inoperable around the year and a half mark (so no longer under warranty). Thought the first time was a fluke, and I took extra care with the second set to try to avoid the same issue, but it still happened again. Not bad for the price, but I'll be shopping around for a more durable set this time.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat afforable sound and communications.

Pros: Compact folding is great for staying safe in tight spaces (loose pockets, small bags, luggage). Microphone can be easily muted and rolled completely up into left side with only small plastic bead sticking out.

Cons: Not much to think of, non the the common Logitech wear and tear shorts or other such audio issues.

Other Thoughts: I had been trying cheap to cheaper USB headsets for both music and headsets (other than earbuds for .mp3) but after multiple problems with drivers and different Windows versions just refusing to recognize after a while (loose connections?) or audio/mic loss after wear/tear of 1+yr. These headphones can be used for music devices or the dual audio plugs can utilize nice bass stereo and microphone communication. As long as your audio sockets stay connected and solid there really shouldn't never be issues on the computer side.

4 out of 5 eggsExactly what I got them for

Pros: So far the perform perfect, not too small for my ears but not too big, the mic is great don't even have to pull it out to use it but it's cool that it does extend if needed.

Cons: None really, the bass isn't the best but what do you expect? I only got them for late night voice chat for League.

3 out of 5 eggsSoldered on the mic.

Pros: Sound is very good for the price, (Decent) the microphone works very well now that I soldered it on.
According to the people I Skype with, the mic is very clear and better sounding than my old $25 logitech.

Cons: Everyone is right about the size of the headphones, after a little while it does hurt a lot. Makes me wish I had something to effectively fix that too, cotton balls maybe?
Still a bit mad about the mic not being soldered on.

Other Thoughts: Surprised Rosewill replied to my review, but I didn't feel a need to contact them and hassle them about their product. I managed to fix it with a little simple soldering.

2 out of 5 eggsCheap

Pros: Cheap, decent sound quality, portable.

Cons: Broke one month after warranty expired. The right side doesn't work unless the cord is held in a certain position. If I move my head, the sound cuts out. The microphone has similar problems, but that stays in place better, so not as much of an issue.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace another Rosewill headset that broke within a few weeks. At least this one lasted long enough to go out of warranty? Should have sent in a warranty claim when the mic (sort of) broke a few months ago, but oh well.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The sound is decent, doesn't mute out the outside world but it does a pretty good job attempting it.

Cons: Microphone wasn't working, at first I thought it was windows, but after trying another microphone, and trying this one on three other computers I concluded that the microphone on the headset was faulty.
I was going to RMA it but unfortunately my dad threw out the box it came in before I figured out that it wasn't working well. After I figured that I couldn't return it for another one, I decided to try to fix it. To my lovely surprise the microphone wasn't soldered on. It was stuck together by black electrical tape. Don't have a solder gun yet so I can't do much about it.

Other Thoughts: Gave it 2 eggs instead of one for the nice sound and I got it for $11.99 instead of $19.99

5 out of 5 eggsGood little headset

Pros: Nice little headset for the price. Works well.
Surprisingly good bass to it.

Cons: Ever so slightly too small. If there was just one more inch around the head it would be perfect.
