5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value Headset

Pros: Excellent Peformance - Cost Ratio

Durability - This is my second set - The first got destroyed in a flood, after a half years heavy use

Comfort Level - Ridiculously good for the price

Sensitivity - Delivers High Output Sound compared to other headphones

Microphone - works as good as competitors similar and higher priced offerings

Adjustable inline volume to earphones

Cons: Doesn't cost an arm and a leg

Doesn't look as cool as the very expensive Headsets

Was difficult to remove from the industrial grade plastic packaging - almost cut myself

Other Thoughts: I got 3 kids here that play online games, and we've had the real Expensive headsets in the past, and all kidding aside, some of those Headsets are real nice, and deliver a noticeable amount of improvement in sound quality to your ears, but none of them lasted(without being compromised/taped up, or even destroyed) as long as the first set of these that I ordered, so I got another set.

As I said above, they deliver amazing sound for the money, too. I listen to music through these late nites, and I am finicky in that regard.

If you're on a budget, or your tired of paying thru the nose for headsets that should last much longer, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how good this headset is.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value

Pros: They're cheap, they're adequate for gaming, and for me they have held up well over time. Sure there are better headsets out there, but they're much more expensive. If you want a decent headset for not much money, this is a good bet.

Cons: None really. For the price they're excellent.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Cheap.
- Mic and Headphones have separate inputs rather than a single USB plug.

Cons: The mic is on the left side and doesn't stay put out of the way when you don't want to use it. The sound quality is poor. I bought these expecting them to sound great like the KSC75, which have fantastic sound, and these ones just don't match up.

2 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

Pros: Great sound, great comfort. Everything was clear and I had no problems with it.

Cons: Only lasted 9 months. I was expecting this to last much longer considering the lifetime warranty listed on new egg. This failed to impress now that it hasn't even lasted a year.

Other Thoughts: Normally I don't write reviews but I've had it with constantly buying new headsets to have them break within a year's time. This is getting far too frustrating for me. I pay expecting quality and got this.

3 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

Pros: Price
Excellent Mic
Comfortable
Collapsable

Cons: Volume control occasionally turns one speaker off at a specific volume.

After a year the left headphone just died.

Other Thoughts: Great headset, but the fact that I have to replace it already is bothersome.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Quality for the price

Pros: These phones are inexpensive and sound great. I use mine for gaming via Mumble and everyone says they can hear me loud and clear. The 8 ft cable is amazing because its got 2 feet on the standard 6 most cabled headphones have.

Cons: The only complaint I have is they do make my head hurt after a while. When you first get them they are very tight to your head (my face is long and tall not very wide) but the more often you wear them they ease up, stretch out a bit and feel more comfortable.

Other Thoughts: Totally worth the money if you are looking for some gaming headphones on a budget.

4 out of 5 eggsone year later

Pros: Excellent sound: quality & clarity. Has the mid-bass response that so many "bass-boosted" gimmick headphones (and 2.1s) lack. Integrated volume control. Good mic.

Cons: Can be uncomfortable with glasses until broken in.
Cord is a bit fragile @ the volume connector. Mine is clearly on it's last legs after about one year of ownership - time to break out the soldering iron.

Other Thoughts: Price for the performance gained is excellent. Not a brand I usually favor, so this was a pleasant surprise.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Cheap Headset

Pros: This headset was great when I first got it shipped to my door. and 1 month later it is still like brand new. the sound is great, and the microphone is decent. This headset is also very comfortable to wear, I can wear it for hours and not get irritated.

Cons: The boom for the microphone is sort of flimsy, if you move your head too fast left or right the microphone wobbles around, which can be annoying when you are recording. Also this has a tenancy to pull my hair when I take it off

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I was sick of buying cheap ear buds that sound terrible and only last a few weeks before breaking. When listening to these it feels like I'm listening to my music for the first time all over again
