5 out of 5 eggsLove them!

This review is from: Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 7 Surround Sound Gaming Headset for PC - Matte Black

Pros: Sound quality is great. They look awesome. They are extremely sturdy. I don't have to worry about breaking them. I have had to use them for speakers (not headphones) before and they worked wonderfully in a 5 foot radius. The mic is very flexible and its as simple as plugging it in to speak.

The line-in cord that they give you with it is pretty nifty.

I had an issue with my mic not sitting correctly. It still worked like it should but I didn't know if it was correct. I emailed madcatz and after a few emails, I had a free mic on the way. Even after stating I didn't really need one. The customer service is expected for this expensive product but still great none the less.

Cons: They are a bit heavy and lets just say I know they're on my head after an extended game session (2+ hours). Making the program work was kind of a pain. Apparently you have to load software before you even plug it in. I had to call the customer service to figure it out.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very happy with this product even after the slight issues. I love that they look so awesome and they have great sound quality. If you have a $200 budget for headphones you will not be unhappy!

3 out of 5 eggsNot worth the money.

This review is from: Mad Catz F.R.E.Q. 7 Surround Sound Gaming Headset for PC - Matte Black

Pros: Good materials and fabrication. The aluminum at the high stress points versus plastic make for a durable headset. Mic arm is extremely flexible, which make it difficult to damage, and can be removed at will. The adapter point can serve, in the event some get caught up in the cord (a kid, a dog), as a break away before possible real damage is caused to the headset. Sound levels are more then adequate, at least for me, keep them between 10-30% output. At 100% output can be used as crude desktop speakers, audio loud and clear enough to be heard up to about 2m away. Noise canceling does it job well.

Cons: The two things that lost this headset two eggs. One the ear cup depth. My ears must stick out more than the average person. The inside of the headset presses against my ears, making it painful to wear for extended durations. Slowly building tolerance to them but I can't wear them for more than four to six hours. Second: woefully inadequate software. All it has is three preset EQ settings, no customization. The other nail is no customization for the surround sound. I bought the headset for gaming and not being to amplify sound from behind annoys me greatly.

Other Thoughts: If you need a durable headset go for it. Looking for a good performance to cost ratio look else where.
