4 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound, Poor CD design

Pros: Awesome bass and sound overall. This is my first foray into Surround Headphones, normally I use stereo headphones or surround speakers of different styles. Still, I like how well it simulated it and the clarity and richness of the audio.

Extra padding on cups and headband are great.
Sound cancelling for ambient noise is solid. Can barely hear my own voice, let alone anything else.
Easy to move and point stick mic works well and didn't produce echo buzz or anything wrong during my playtime.
Drivers and software all worked in Windows 7 Home once installed.
Having the extra setting for vibration is a strange but handy perk. It is weird to have headphones vibrate on your head, but once you give it time to settle in, it does add a nice added bit of hutzpah to the bass and so I don't mind. I set mine to the LOW vibration for now, the HIGH was a little too jarring.

Cons: Cord is ok but could be a lot longer.
In-line controls on the cord are closer to the headphones and lacks a clip or method to attach it to something easily. This means you have this WEIGHT on the wire hanging off your head. Not terrible, but because the control is large it is noticeable and can be annoying depending on how you sit.
Software on the disk stinks. Autoplay doesn't work, browsing into the cd and loading the "Setup" file gives you a Flash menu to read the manual or install the drivers. In trying the install button, nothing happened. So i manually browsed to the drivers folder and ran the setup program there and everything went smooth.

Other Thoughts: Overall for the price I really like these and it'll be interesting testing them on other games. For the initial test I threw down Saints Row 4 for a few hours and between the music, dub step sections, vehicle mayhem and explosions it handled all nicely. The spatial surround was set to simulated 7.1 and the position of people and sound was mostly right on (it was an online game so some audio was slightly delayed for some reason). Outside of that it has worked like a champ!

5 out of 5 eggsI am VERY Impressed

Pros: Ok, so I got these based on 2 things...1) they were fairly cheep for what they seemed too be, and 2) they looked cool.

They Arrived and I have NOT been disappointed, they Are VERY nice and comfortable having about 3/4" soft padding around the full ear AND on the head Band, the ear fits inside comfortably, the Mic is nice and easy to move around and manipulate, the Sound coming from them is AWESOME...I can hear every note from the heavy metal music I chose to test them with, the vibration is an awesome feature takes a bit to get used too but once ya do it's like you are standing in front of the concert speakers. I tested at about 1/4 of the total volume and all was clear..I then turned them up to full blast (yes my ears hurt a bit) but the music and voices were STILL crystal clear...And my wife sitting 8 feet away could barely hear them. I Highly recommend these to ANYONE.

Cons: Not a single thing.

5 out of 5 eggsValue for Money Cannot be Beat

Pros: -Incredible Sound. The Vibration is almost unnecessary but it adds a LOT to the immersion of not only music, but also gaming. Never have I had a buzzing issue in the mic with the vibration setting on/off at any setting.
-Comfortable, however they do become uncomfortable after long sessions (2 hours+)
-Controls are easy, Cord is a manageable size.
-Noise Reduction, I'm used to a pretty flimsy headset with a decent mic, and not being able to hear the ambient noises around the house was a major plus (dryer/washing machine/other appliances). Upon entering Teamspeak 3, I went to the setup and everything was very simple. I usually use voice activation, and I usually see at least a little noise picked up by the mic, however the mic cover/pop filter included does its job very well, as well as the mic itself.

Cons: -Driver Software
My only gripe whatsoever is that, upon inserting the disc, I was not prompted into the autorun directly into a flash media file which was intended. Instead, I had to view the files and launch the application myself. It's completely okay, I was never lost in the process, however it is unclean in design. (Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit) After entering the application for the driver installation and user manual, I clicked on the option to install drivers, and nothing would happen. I attempted many times, running as administrator and restarting the computer did not aid the situation. I resorted then to finding the drivers online, and couldn't find anything different from the disc I already had (I was expecting to find a manual install with just the files or a direct-install .exe file). The drivers, then, were actually unnecessary, the mic seemed to install its own drivers without the disc with about 5 minutes time,

Other Thoughts: Vibration setting was very bizarre at first, a little annoying and ticklish, however after a week, it's not a problem whatsoever.
In general. for around 40-50 bucks on sale, it can't be beat. There's a reason why it's the most reviewed (gaming) headset on Newegg. Rosewill (Newegg's In-House brand) really knocked it out of the park with this one.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: Good overall sound quality, great bass and an above average mid range and treble. Fits comfortably with good padding. Good price point*.

Cons: The vibration function takes some getting used to, but is potentially very cool. Sadly mine developed a static sound when the vibration function was active about a year into ownership.

For some reason when I plug mine into a USB 3.0 slot it doesn't sound quite the same. Kind of like the speakers were blown. However when I plug it back into a 2.0 slot all is well again. I have no idea why this is, and it may be something else with my rig, so take it for what you will.

I've had this headset since December 2012 and it's started to develop a bit of a problem in the wiring somewhere, because when the cable attached to the headset is resting at certain angles it sounds like there is a loose connection somewhere.

Other Thoughts: I got this on sale for $35. At that price I would easily recommend it to anyone looking for a gaming headset on a budget. At its current price of $50 I would not.

1 out of 5 eggsMic dead barely after a month

Pros: Comfy.

Cons: Mic dead BARELY after a month, hardly used as I was traveling for three weeks of the duration of the ownership of the headset. Not appeased.

Other Thoughts: Wish this died a few days ago so I could return it!

4 out of 5 eggsI like them.

Pros: Good Value paired with excellent sound quality.
Surprisingly durable.
Vibe function works well when playing with explosives.
Lengthy cord.
The lights on the control pad come in handy.

Cons: Mic could transmit a bit clearer.
Vocal cancellation function affects sound quality.
I had to remove and reattach the mic due to transmission issues.
Software required for all features to work.

Other Thoughts: Better for gaming and watching livestreams.
Mic can be wonky without Voice Cancellation.
When listening to music, Vibe function will take the Bass to the foreground and make some songs sound awkward.
The control pad can become heated at times.

5 out of 5 eggsExplosive sound Great price

Pros: The sound quality is amazing. Went to retail store and some turtle beach headsets were on display. Even the $149 pair was junk compaired to these. These Rosewell pair has crisp hd sound and extremely hi quality base. These are like 3D sound because of the awesome vibration.

Cons: There are 3 base/vibration settings. Off/medium/high. The explosiveness on high setting is sometimes to much. Im good with medium setting.

Other Thoughts: Didnt try the mic yet

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great sound from this headset, you can boot the bass considerably high without any distortion of the higher frequencies. This can be credited to the vibration, which is basically the same feeling as force-feedback in a controller. With default configuration this is a mediocre headset, but with some tweaking it becomes incredible, I don't think I could own a headset that did not have this vibrating feature after experiencing it.
Build wise the quality seems quite high, very solid, heavy plastic. I frequently wear a ballcap with my headset, it is extremely comfortable with, and without.

Cons: The microphone isn't very good, Teamspeak is generally "good enough" but with most in-game voice chats it is useless, CounterStrike especially. Changing the physical microphone offered no improvement. Because the microphone can unplug from the headset, gravity can cause it to rotate downward, tape may be required to keep it in position.

Other Thoughts: I give this product 4 eggs only because of the extremely impressive sound, I'm a self proclaimed BassHead. If the sound was average I would give it 2, maybe 3 eggs due to the microphone failing in most situations.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Nice sound, almost comfortable, not bad value...but expect a little more quality out of a $50 headset.

Cons: 2 serious issues: Mic goes bad, Headset can't be made small enough

Other Thoughts: The mic on my first one broke shortly before the 1 year warranty expired and rosewill customer service was excellent and replaced it for me at no cost.

The mic on my replacement set is not completely broken but has developed very loud feedback after about 6 months.

This seems to be a common problem for this headset.

It's slightly too large even on the smallest headband setting.

While it worked it was great, however it seems to be a common theme that the mics are flawed on these.

Just bought a $100 wireless set up because the cord is also somewhat annoying, hopefully for double the price I get something that lasts twice as long as this thing did.

Overall I will still buy rosewill products, but I am somewhat dissapointed this thing didn't hold up better.
