1 out of 5 eggsGood Mic Wasted in Terrible Design

Pros: Mic quality out-performs the "gaming" headsets of my friends.

Cons: This headset may have been purposely constructed to fail in every possible manner.

The cord is sheathed in cheap plastic which eventually comes out of the connections at the components, breaking wires. I have soldered this things back together three times in two places, and it barely survives. The primary factor hear is that the plastic sheath starts to hold a memory and then resists bending, causing it to stress where it terminates.

The wires are impossible to deal with in the case of a broken wire, since they are braided headphone wires, which are obnoxiously thin and easy burn up, not to mention the impossible-to-remove insulation on every single strand. I guess this is a common feature for most audio accessories, but that doesn't mitigate the problems it causes.

The ear clip is ergonomically challenged, providing absolutely no real control. Not only that, but it breaks easily, and mine is glued back in place. I'm considering bolting it back in place, since this *****y plastic won't hold glue even when scuffed.

The microphone might be nice, but the housing is awful. I do not enjoy talking through a tiny pinhole. If you want to make a directional microphone, make a directional microphone, not a cheap-*** case with a hole in it.

The mute switch causes issues on mine, forcing me to unplug and replug the jack after using the mute switch, thanks to a lasting static interference. That's okay, though, because I lost the mute switch after opening the volume control case to solder this broken piece of **** back together.

Comfort? You want comfort? Ha.

The amount of electrical tape, solder, and super-glue on my headset outweighs the original construction materials, and I feel a did a good job being frugal. If you don't enjoy fixing electronics by taping, soldering, and gluing them back together, you're going to throw away this garbage in a few months of buying it. I paid $25 at a local store for this and now I have to look into replacing it.

Other Thoughts: I saw this microphone on Newegg while looking for its replacement. I didn't buy it on Newegg, but it's so friggin' terrible that I had to stop to write this review. I have never reviewed any other products, because I don't feel very motivated, but this thing sucks that badly.

In case you are wondering, I don't treat my stuff harshly, especially electronics. All aforementioned problems stem from ordinary use, even light use. It's hung up in the same place after I use it each time, it's always used the same way, it never travels with me, and I don't get frustrated at my belongings and abuse them like some people. I often read reviews like this and think "this person must have messed it up and doesn't realize he's at fault", but this is not one of those reviews. Please.... please don't buy this, and please only trust reviews from those who have owned it longest.

You're welcome.

1 out of 5 eggsAbosolutely terrible.

Pros: Mic input quality is somewhat decent... and that's about all it has going for it.

Cons: THE EAR CLIP. Oh g*d, how I hate it. It always comes out of the slot you're supposed to stick it in, and the clip doesn't fit my ear at all. Plus the thing that goes into your ear canal is probably more painful than trying to shove a pencil in your ear. Sound quality on your end end is decent at best.

(getting a little frisky on the censorship there, newegg?)

Other Thoughts: At least the built in volume/mute buttons work.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of Money

Pros: One ear solution, long cord.

Cons: Not the same product as advertised on newegg!!! be warned! The product is not as pictured. Instead of having an adjustable mini-boom with a foam covered mouth piece. It has a sold plastic mic with the CHEAPEST pin hole mic on the end ever created by man, possibly child.

Other Thoughts: In the picture on newegg one would think it may have a decent microphone, had i seen the actual product and not a false picture, I would have been able to tell it wasn't the mic stock i was looking for.

Don't waste your money enless you need your voice to sound like your talking on a tin can while its being dragged down a street behind a car.

Absolutely the worst quality of product and a complete waste of money since the purpose is to pick up sound.
