4 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Light. Can barely feel them on you at first. 4 star sound quality. Mic isn't very adjustable but its good because its already at almost perfect position, far enough away so you don't breath in it but close enough that you can be hear easily. Also I can take a sip from my soda can without hitting it.

Cons: Too loose. Maybe i have a small head or something but these sit a little too low on my ears. If i turn my head to fast they also move around alot.

Other Thoughts: Bought these at Best Buy ($41.99) after i lent my old logitech headset to someone at a LAN and forgot to get them back. Become uncomfortable after 2.5-3 hours of gaming but they get the job done an OK buy.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT!!

Pros: Absolutely awesome.Great sound!Great bass.The mic is super clear on Teamspeak and "im" and sound 100 times better than my friends cell phone. USB adapter is the best,I don't have to crawl around behind my computer to plug in the 3.5mm jacks.

Cons: I didn`t buy two.

Other Thoughts: Best I have ever had. And contrary to what many have said,I can where them for hours with absolutely no pain.

4 out of 5 eggsOk for the money

Pros: ☼ Very clear mic. Friends tell my I sound crystal clear on Ventrillo, Teamspeak, and Skype. ☼ The USB plug works great for me since I can plug it into one of my Logitech G15 USB Ports. ☼ Sound is good for the price, and they are fairly comfortable (I have small ears, if that matters). ☼ I really don't notice them even after sessions lasting a few hours, and the padding on them is pretty cushioned. ☼ The mic volume control is really nice to have for those moments when you're talking to your buddies online and you don't want them to hear your stupid family members in the background as they talk to you. Saved me from many embarrassing moments. ☼ Cord is plenty long enough, you could run it from the back of a computer on the floor easily.

Cons: ☼ The labels on the volume control have just began to fade away after about 4 months of use. They're still legible, but not sure how much longer they'll last. ☼ Only thing that really need the labels is the mic volume controls though. ☼ I never really used the clip on the volume control....

Other Thoughts: Got these for Christmas last year, and they're holding up much better than my previous headphone/headsets. When, and if, these die on me, I'll be looking for another pair of Altec Lansing's.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent enough headphones

Pros: Good Sound from the headphones, Microphone picks up voice decently clear, nice long cord

Cons: Strangely large USB sound card, cheaply built volume controller, headphones get uncomfortable rather quickly

Other Thoughts: First thing I noticed is that the designers obviously did not put a lot of thought into the USB sound card - It takes up two ports because of how thick it is. I don't use it. After about a week, the in-built volume controller split clear in half. It's now held together with tape. Also, if you're hoping to sit through a long game or movie with these, you're going to be sorry - They get very uncomfortable rather quickly. For me, it's usually on the microphone side, so I just drop that side below my ear for a while.

3 out of 5 eggsBlag...

Pros: An Affordable headset for most uses good sound quality and the usb soundcard is a must!

Cons: I've been through 2 pairs of these the first one my sister broke when she ran over the cord and tore it from the volume controller 7 months of use. Now the second one the mic adjustment was a bit flimsy unlike my first set... after about 3 months of use the mic died on the second set.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if i'd buy another pair after already downing 2 in a year =/

4 out of 5 eggsOuch...

Pros: You can do just about anything without them falling off. The sound quality is really nice along with the bass. Lastly, the cord is really long so if you must zig-zag the cord around your desk there'll be enough cord.

Cons: After a couple of hours with them on my ears begin to hurt really bad. So bad that I must take them off and wait about an hour for the pain to completely go away.

Other Thoughts: If you'd like a headset with nice sound quality and don't mind your ears hurting quite a bit, then this is the set for you.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Long cord, good sound, inline volume control.

Cons: bulky USB connector, blinking red LED gets annoying

Other Thoughts: I broke the headphone connector on my laptop. This would not be a huge issue, except I am taking a course. I took a quick look at what was available. I plugged it in and it was immediately recognized in XP and in Ubuntu Linux. The LED on the sound card flashes continually in XP, but not in Linux. The USB connection is rather big and easily bumped. I'll eventually get an USB extension cord so I don't have to worry about bumping it.

Good deal on a set of headphones that just work. I'd recommend them to anyone.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sound quality is pretty good. Mic quality is pretty good. Cord is long.

Cons: My ears hurt just by looking at them...as soon as I put them on, my ears are already hurting. Long or short periods hurt, and bending them only fixed the problem for like 30 seconds, then its back to hurting again. The volume thing broke open. The wires got pulled out, had to solder them.

Other Thoughts: Good quality, but painful and annoying.
