These things have GREAT sound! They come with an equalizer, which is a must have! They have a motor in each earcup that vibrates, this doesnt sound like a good thing but its AMAZING. I wish every headset vibrated. It adds a lot of depth to the sound. I LOVE IT. The headband is VERY comfortable. I got these for around $45.00. Even for $80.00 these headphones would be worth it. Great drivers, Great software, Great headset. The software comes with some perks too. The software has an environment changer that makes it sound like your in a bathroom, in a concert hall, under water, and at a music pub. Also you can change the pitch of your voice, with many other effects. The software for these headphones is the best software I've ever had on any headphones. You really can't beat the sound customization. If you like bass, pump up the bass, it sounds great! If you like more treble, go ahead and change that too. Adjust the sound the way YOU like it. The headphones are pretty sturdy too and feature a detachable, adjustable mic. By adjustable I mean that it is VERY flexible and will keep any form you bend it in. Overall, this is almost the perfect headset, except for 2 flaws...
After about 6 months of use, the wire that leads into the earcup started to break. The mic would cut in and out as I wiggled the cord. Eventually it got to the point that the entire headset would randomly lose power. Unplugging the headset and plugging it back in would bring it back to life. Shortly after that I could no longer hear the characters in my video games. I assume the wire to the center drivers went out. I can't be sure though.
Secondly, the earcups are small for my big ears, causing a lot of pain after long periods of usage (2-3 hours straight)
Over all this is a GREAT headset. The problem I had with the headset didn't seem to happen to too many people. For the price, this is the best headset you can get your hands on.
I just bought a Plantronics Gamecom 780 headset and the Rosewill headset sounds SOOO MUCH BETTER.
So do yourself a solid and buy this headset.
