4 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This thing fits nicely around my big neck. Picks up whispers for when you're roommate is sleeping. The ear piece is comfortable and I can wear it for a few hours without fatigue. after those marathons of Halo or MW2, I sometimes forget that it is on me. I thought at first it would break within a few days because it feels kinda fake if you would. the plastic on the neck band is flexible but firm.

Cons: The only bad thing i can find with this headset is that it picks up EVERYTHING. i have to have my tv on low volume so that it doesnt get picked up by the mic.

Other Thoughts: very pleased in this purchase, and of course, Newegg got it to me on tuesday when i ordered it on sunday evening. Ill be back Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Headset for a Good Pride

Pros: When I first saw this headset, I thought it was just a gimmick for looks. Once I got it, I put it on an immediately went into a party chat with some friends, they said they could hear me perfectly. This headset feels a lot better than having the bulky over-the-head type.

Cons: I don't know if it's just me or not, but after wearing it for awhile, it feels like it is pinching my neck. Like I said, it could just be me since I am always pulling/stretching my shirt collar because it feels like it is choking me. The other con I have is that it picks up some "outside" noise. I could have someone standing 25ft away talking in a normal voice and the mic will pick it up what they are saying sometimes. I would call that too big of a con since it picks up your own voice really well.

Other Thoughts: I bought this headset as a backup headset just incase mine broke, but now I use it all the time. The only time I don't use it is when I am playing music games (Rock Band/Guitar Hero) since it would pick up the strumming of the guitar and the beating of the drum pads. I also like the MW2 text on it since I play COD a lot.

5 out of 5 eggsVery happy

Pros: 1st time i got it i thought it wouldn't work but after trying it out it works out fine. Sounds very clear, has a volume adjuster, feels good not to have a headphone set on your head

Cons: fits a lil snugged around the neck but no other cons about this product

1 out of 5 eggsChoke Bracelet

Pros: Newegg gave me a full refund for this defective item.

Cons: This item was defective right out of the pacakge. The item is meant for a child as the elastic band will cut off the air flow and blood circulation in your neck if you have it on longer than 5 minutes.

Other Thoughts: Always knew MadCatz was a C list company, thought I'd give them a try...my mistake.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I needed

Pros: Way better than user a cell-phone ear bud with an inline mic.
I can wear my wireless headphones over the earbud.
The band size is perfect for my neck size. Any larger and it would cut off circulation.

Cons: Not a con I guess, but with the earpiece in your ear you can't hear hardly anything else out of that ear, but what do you expect?

Other Thoughts: I'd say the quality of this is exactly the same as what comes from with the xbox elite console package.
I wanted this so I could use my wireless headphones over-top the in-ear piece.
If you don't use wireless headphones, then there's probably no real reason to not use what comes with your xbox.

5 out of 5 eggsSo...so...

Pros: The pros are that it does fit comfortably around the neck. The ear bud is really great...i wore it for two hours straight and had no uncomfortable ear pain. Nice design and accually surprised me that MadCATz could accually make a product with durability.

Cons: The only cons i could find with it is that the mute and volume switch part is a little to high, but i had the thing figured out in five minutes to where i didn't have to look at it so its really not that bad i guess.

Other Thoughts: Something that sold me on this product was its ability to block out ambient noises and things like that. I did read where a user had an issue with drinking and the microphone picking it up, but mine had picked up everything that make a noise. Which has its ups and downs. If at night you wana play quietly the you ain't gotta talk as loud accually you can pretty much whisper and the thing will pick up...over all well done MADCATZ keep this up and you might have a good name again.

5 out of 5 eggsReview

Pros: So far it's been really good. No troubles for a few months. I havent heard myself on the other end but so far no one has reported i sound funny.

Cons: maybe a little constricting around the neck for some. but it's not bad unless you have 'no neck' syndrome.

Other Thoughts: Earpiece stays put for me, just add a bit of angle to it.
So far a very cool device, works great, and looks a heck of a lot better than regular headsets.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for a madcats

Pros: When your talking to your friends on xbox360 or other multipurpose uses such as a cell phone, this microphone comes in great, and the speakers are great quality. For how the price it works better than a microsoft.

Cons: It is madcats...

madcats has a reputation for reaking.

Other Thoughts: Madcats has a reputation for having dollar store quality of gaming. In the past ive owned atleast one madcats item for every gaming counsole ive had, and each item was defective or worse.. broken after a week of use. Though I expect this microphone to break, it really does seem higher quality than what people give it.

4 out of 5 eggsFinely! Quality form Madcatz

Pros: Does decent job of preventing ambient noise contamination.
Earbud is same style as skullcandy rubber bud and is super comfortable for hours upon hours of gaming.
Earbud deliver quality sound w/ volume control.
No moving parts so it is technically quality construction.

Cons: Any vibration can trigger mic (so needs muted before drinking, clearing throat softly - which isn't an issue with typical mics)
Neckband isn't adjustable - people with large necks may get headaches from pinching of arteries in neck.
Plug LOVES to pop out of bottom of controller with slightest nudge (MS brand headset doesn't seem to pop out so easy)
Volume + mute box is so high on cord you can't really read anything while wearing...gotta learn the controls.

Other Thoughts: For the money it's a good replacement for a standard issue MS brand wired headset if you like myself hate having the over ear and over head style.

First MADCATZ product I've held that didn't feel like it was going to break the next day.

Just have to make sure you get the mic hole near your trachea for clear speech.
