5 out of 5 eggsPretty fricking amazing

Pros: They are comfortable around my ears and VERY loud. Which may seem like a pro, but my master volume is set to 10/100 and blows my Razer Tiamat 7.1 out the water. 1/4 the price and incredibly much better.

The adjustment console is very light and easy to configure. Simple USB plug in. Light and have a durable feel.

The vibration with the bass is a nice touch. Some may hate it, but you can turn it off. I personally very much enjoy it.

The mic isn't garbage and people hear me crystal clear.

I have not owned them very long, but from my last headsets, they are 200% less troublesome to set up & have me smiling from ear to ear.

Cons: It was a bit troublesome to install. My custom PC does not have a disc drive & it does come with a disc, so that was mostly likely the reason why. However I didn't take long to set it up. I did have some troubles setting up the microphone. Overall, not enough to deduct any eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsTruly immersive sound!

Pros: Great sound quality and good stereo imaging. I use it to play World of Warships, and believe me the subwoofer and rumble feature makes the booms BOOM! So much more fun with great sound!

Cons: None that I can think of or even remotely expect to find!

2 out of 5 eggsGreat when it works

Pros: -Does what it's supposed to do!
-Mic is detachable and flexible.
-Earpieces are flexible.
-Vibration works really good.
-All the adjustment buttons are in one place.
-It's decent;y comfortable.

Cons: -The software for the headset seems outdated and it isn't very good.
-Not comfortable with glasses.
-Mic doesn't seem to work good in game.
-When I first got the headset it made a static noise after about 10-15 mins of use and would do that randomly forever. I sent it in for a replacement and it was accepted. When my replacement came it was still the same old malfunctional headset I sent in.

Other Thoughts: Not sure what happened to my replacement but because of the static issue, the software, and the false replacement I'm giving this product two eggs.

I'm hoping that someone just accidentally put the same broken headset in a new box and sent it back to me.

2 out of 5 eggsAwesome headset if works

Pros: -The headset does everything it says it does so that's good!

-The earpieces are comfortable.

-The mic is flexible and detachable.

-The earpieces have good flexibility as well.

-The volume, mute, and vibration settings buttons are all in one place.

-The vibration works really good.

Cons: -The software for the headset isn't very good.

-The mic doesn't seem to work to good in games.

-When I bought the headset I received it and it worked improperly. It would make a static noise after about 10-15 mins and after the first 10-15 mins it would occur randomly. I sent the headset in for a replacement and it was accepted. I was told I would get a new headset and in the mail came my old headset with the problem still occuring.

Other Thoughts: I have never had issues with Newegg or Rosewill products before but I guess when there IS a problem they totally screw you.

I'm giving it two eggs because of the static issue and the poor replacement.

Make sure you check all the choices before getting this headset.

4 out of 5 eggsNot for glasses-users

Pros: Great sound qualilty.

Cons: it presses my ears up against my glasses. The headphones are pretty heavy, so it's pretty uncomfortable unless I move the temples of my glasses above my ears.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you're wanting a usb output for these.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Good sound, easy to setup through USB port. 7.1 surround is pretty good for headphones with some adjustment needed in the software to sound correct. Good enough bass response without vibration turned on.

Cons: For some reason the sound stops working spuriously. Tried reinstall, checked USB ports, looked for update. I found if I switch USB ports, the sound comes back for a while. The vibration simulates bass response but it picks up a hum from some radio interference or something so I don't use it.

Other Thoughts: I have owned this pair for 6 months. I have owned two other surround headphone sets, a Logitech G35 and a $200 Tritton Pro+ 5.1 and these seem almost as good and cost way less!

3 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: I've had these for 6 months and they work fine. Sound quality is really the best part of this headset. Mic is fine for in game communication.
The headband is comfortable, the ear cups are just a bit too small for my ears. I wear these for 7-10 hours at a time and I don't find myself fatigued in any way due to this headset. They don't feel heavy on my head.
The mute button is a great feature of this headset and is fairly easy to use (though the light illuminates when the mic is muted instead of when it's live - which, to me, seems backwards to how it should work).
I sometimes wear glasses while using these and everything still feels pretty comfortable.

Cons: The mic picks up a lot of background noise. There's just a bit of feedback present in all my streams and recordings. I can edit most of it out in my recording, but they're not ideal for streaming.
The ear cups make your ears very warm. I'm bald, so it easy to tell the heat is coming from the ear cups and nothing else.
The ear cups are a bit small for my ears and my ears are a bit "tucked" in a the top (my ears are 3" from top to bottom). If your ears are 3" or longer, you probably want a different headset.
The motor for the vibration is annoying, to say the least. I NEVER us the vibration feature because of this. There is a very noticeable hum when you have the vibration turned on, even on the lowest of the two settings. When turned on the higher of the settings you'll think an airplane is hovering over your house.

Other Thoughts: This is a decent headset, I wouldn't say great and I wouldn't say poor. The sound is great and if you have ears smaller than 2.75" they should be comfortable. I don't know how anyone can use the vibration feature with the hum that the motor makes. The mic is decent for Skype and in-game communication, but not recording quality.
I picked mine up for 50 dollars with the rebate (which was a smooth process). For this price, they're well worth picking up if you don't intend to record and if your ears are under 3" long.
