This review is from: Logitech G930 USB Connector Circumaural Wireless Gaming Headset

Pros:

I really deliberated about this purchase, because I do use my USB headphones a lot (largely for conference calls and music), and I wanted something with solid battery life, good construction, features that made sense. Most importantly I want something that works without any fiddling in Linux, OS X and windows. I'm pleased to report these are truly plug-and-play in Linux and OS X (and probably windows, but I installed the drivers anyway), and offer all the features they promise. They're a big heavy but comfortable nonetheless. I have a largish head, so your mileage may vary. I also love the fact that raising the microphone will mute it, plus you have a dedicated mute button and the mute light works in both cases. In my opinion, they sound fantastic, both for listening and for those that get to hear my dulcet tones in meetings. They have enough noise isolation that it makes hearing others easier in calls.

Cons:

Of course, many of the touted features like 7.1 and the hot buttons won't work out of the box in any operating system, and not at all on Linux or OS X, but those aren't very useful things for me. Chances are if you care you're running windows and that's not a limitation for you. Range is good, but originally I was using them on a computer right next to my main wireless access point and it knocked some computers off the network when in use. Relocating it fixed the problem. They creak a bit when you're moving around. I don't think others can hear it though. It's a bit odd to hear yourself speak due to the noise isolation. I'll get used to it.

Other Thoughts:

Somewhat pricey, but an awesome investment if you have to be on conference calls many hours a day. The fact that they're fairly large makes it clear I'm on calls and shouldn't be bugged. They don't need to know you're listening to music instead, just go ahead and lower that boom mic.
