This review is from: Tt eSPORTS HT-SHK002ECBL Circumaural SHOCK Gaming Headset
Pros: - Sounds awesome
- Fits nice
Cons: - Falling apart
Other Thoughts: Like the review writer before me, my headset isn't holding up. I purchased in July, 2012, so it's basically new, but the plastic around the wires is breaking at the ends, and I expect that the wires will be exposed soon. Also, the left earphone is going out. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. I feel like I shouldn't have to pay over $100 for a headset with the basic features of being circumaural, having a mic, sounding decent, and not falling apart in a few months.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Ozone Gaming Gear ATTACK 3.5mm x 2 Connector Circumaural Stereo Gaming Headset
Pros: - Sounds good
- Mic is good
- Fits my head well
Cons: - Left side speaker stopped working
Other Thoughts: I bought this headset on 8/24. There were only one or two negative reviews here on Newegg, but I remember reading what someone wrote. "The right speaker went out a few weeks after I ordered it." Well, I've had it for almost a year now, and it went out. The wiring at the bottom of the left ear cup seems to be messed up. When I wiggle it, I can get the sound to work perfectly until I tilt my head or let the wire move at all. I was plenty gentle with this headset, but I know that it won't be long until even wiggling the wire will make it work, so I came back here to check if there's a manufacturer's warranty or something. There isn't, but there are way more reviews saying the the speakers stopped working. Don't buy this headset. It will go bad.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sennheiser - Sport Headphones (CX 380)
Pros: * I like how the right cord is longer than the left. This was done for a reason as the cord goes behind your neck, resting remaining length of cord on your left shoulder. This support keeps the buds in your ears better.
* These headphones sounded amazing for the first eight months. I could totally call them "noise isolating," and they sounded every bit as good as my speaker and subwoofer combo. They in fact made my speakers obsolete, and I only used those for movies.
Cons: * After eight months, which is to say a few days ago, they suddenly went bad. As the reviewer just previous to me points out, the volume is incredibly low. Where I was using only 40% to blow my ears off, 100% is hardly livable, and this of course reduces the quality by causing grainy sounds.
Other Thoughts: * If they weren't discontinued, I would recommend these. I know it's only some people that get defective products, and I know that I'm just one of the unlucky ones. If I weren't looking for a microphone, I would send them in for manufacturer repair as they're still under warranty, but I decided to order a headset.READ FULL REVIEW
