Good but not without flaws 12/08/2009
Excellent sound. The surround sound is accurate, with clear highs and for my purposes, good bass. Once I had to take them off while playing a game to know if it was really a thunderstorm over head or just the sound coming from this set. Also, the mic is bendable steel construction, and the connectors and cable is built very solid.
The ear cups fit over my ear, but the supplied cups are not very deep at all and I find my ears being pressed against the speaker foam. This becomes very uncomfortable, and I plan on replacing them with something better. Also, I had the headstrap break on me, which is just a thin piece of plastic that holds up the relatively heavy weight of the set. It really is a shame, that such a high quality built headset would be supported by a flimsy band that broke in less than a year of use.
With a few improvements I don't think you could find a better set for gaming.
