3 out of 5 eggsDecent but fragile

Pros: Easily adjustable to fit over either ear, was comfortable enough to fall asleep while wearing.

Cons: The cord going into the earpiece gets a lot of abuse and can be tugged out too easily braking the headset. Miss having stereo sound and the earpiece is a bit uncomfortable until your ears get used to it.

Other Thoughts: Other reviews talked about the mic not working well especially on Skype. I had the same problem and found out it was actually my audio driver and skype clashing for control. A quick fix can be to manually set your driver and skype, then turn off automatic hardware recognition. Hope it helps.

1 out of 5 eggsWho designed this thing...

Pros: ........-_-

Cons: Completely worthless. It is incredibly unfortunate that they are still able to sell this thing. It does not fit on your hear, the "funnel" does not fit in your ear, & the actual mic quality is mediocre, never mind that it is impossible to use.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY!

1 out of 5 eggsItem is hard to wear, hear, and talk!

Pros: The mic can be moved around

Cons: I can barely hear anything through the funnel! It doesn't even fit in your ear. Just like one of the other reviews! And the mic is so low, I turned up everything on my computer, and the other person on skype STILL couldn't hear me unless I was eating my mic. Even then it was very low.

Other Thoughts: I don't think anyone should buy it. Even a cheaper mic/headset would most likely be better. At least they could get onto your ear and stay there.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst mic ever

Pros: uh... you can kinda hear sound... I guess

Cons: uncomfortable, mic doesn't work, not even an earpiece, more like a funnel that points into your ear.

Other Thoughts: I too, made the unfortunate mistake of buying this hunk of junk at wal mart cuz my freakin cat chewed through the cords of my last $15 (not too shabby) headset. I will never trust wal mart again!

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible terrible headset

Pros: ....

Cons: Won't stay on ear; very uncomfortable; sound quality is pretty bad; terrible design

Other Thoughts: This headset just served to remind me why I should look at reviews before I buy things. I bought this at Walmart because I needed to use right away. My last headset was pretty cheap and worked superbly but this head showed me that all cheap headsets are not created equal.

What a terrible awful waste of plastic

1 out of 5 eggsAwful

Pros: Microphone function does actually work... but..

Cons: Does NOT fit on your ear in any way at all. You can kind of get it to sit on top of your ear, but if you move your head it will fall off. Absolutely horrible design. Worst ergonomics I have ever seen, don't buy. Just get a cheap headset, like I ended up doing.

Other Thoughts: Product should be discontinued.

1 out of 5 eggsT_T

Pros: I was able to pick it up at wal*mart in a pinch

Cons: ear hurts in about 30 minutes, almost have to have the mic in your mouth to pick up your voice, but it doesn't have enough reach to even get in front of your mouth

Other Thoughts: not worth its weight in plastic

1 out of 5 eggsWretched...

Pros: Newegg + fedex = amazing, got it 2 days early! though, now I wish I hadn't...

Cons: EVERYTHING! Horrible design, Cyber Acoustics trie to make it look appealing by aesthetics but don't be fooled, this thing is garbage.
1- Doesn't fit to your ear AT ALL!I spent a good 20 minutes trying to get it to stay in my ear, but it was the most stubborn piece of trash i have ever seen, didnt like my left ear or my right!
2- Audio quality is horrendous! You can hardly hear anything without blaring the volume and the quality is poor. If you are planning to use this headset despite my review, please for your own sake, just use the mic, the audio component is easily the worst headphone speaker I have EVER laid my ears upon.
3- The mic is also pure trash. Despite not being able to properly attach this headset to my ear, I decided to test out the mic component anyway. The sound pickup level on this thing is practically non-existent. The only time it actually received my vocals was when the mic was right up against my mouth, and even then the sound level was too low to be heard.

Other Thoughts: Please for your own sake, do not waste your money on this garbage. I thought my last logitech $30 headset was bad, and thought it was, this is a new low...

4 out of 5 eggsWell worth the buy

Pros: Fully adjustable ear piece. You can remove the flexible ear piece and flip it around so it's possible to use in whichever ear you feel is comfortable. Small chord, so running it over with your chair won't hurt it.

Cons: The sound quality isn't the best, had a lot better quality with my last headset, but it does it's job.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the buy considering the price.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful!!

Pros: very light and comfortable, i can wear this thing for hours! I happen to wear glasses and after about 3 hours of gameplay my old headset would start to hurt my ears from the compression of my ear to my glasses temple. Great product, sound is decent and mic is crystal clear

Cons: took a while on how to figure out how to wear it, you need to have the weird looking flat black piece on the ear piece facing the front of your face and then bend the part that secures it to your ear to conform to your ear. After that its smooth sailing :)

the only REAL con is sometimes the cord gets in the way but thats what the cord clippy is for i guess :P

Other Thoughts: all in all great buy for what your getting
