Pros: Cheap and small.
Cons: Where do I start? First, after waiting three weeks to arrive it was having problems simply connecting to my wireless network. After half an hour of troubleshooting I finally got it to connect. At 20 feet away it just refused to work. Tried it on another machine where it would sluggishly load some webpages, so I left it there since that machine didn't get used.
So I went back to using my old Netgear WNA1000 that dropped signals that I ordered this to replace. That got busted while I was moving and I was forced to use this to get my desktop to connect. At my new house this will /still/ not work worth the power it takes to turn on the LED. 50 feet from the router it's struggling to even load Google. At 75 feet my Xbox 360 will stream Netflix effortlessly, my phone will load webpages in a flash, and my laptop does everything it should without a hiccup. This has been hung up on Google (still not loading anything) for the entire five minutes it's taken me to write this review.
Other Thoughts: Spend your money elsewhere. I'm going to crack it open and see if soldering a better antenna on will help, but I guess for now it's time to use a bridge that I had hoped to use elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sony PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset
Pros: These headphones have very good sound quality, the build quality is great, they're very comfortable, obviously wireless, and they've got some really great features like simulated surround sound and adjustable volume. Not to mention they come with a nice carrying case and 3.5mm cable. Oh, did I mention the microphone is built in and out of the way?
The packaging was simple and it adequately protected the headphones.
Cons: Battery life! Battery life! Battery life! I'm sitting here at about 4 hours of use after being charged and they're beeping at me about low battery. This is a HUGE issue since they take roughly three hours to charge. If my phone only worked a little longer than it charged I'd be livid. The simulated surround sound is also not available to PC users. I would understand if the PC was a fully competing platform to the PlayStation3/4 but Sony also makes laptops and it would make a wonderful selling point. They simply do not have the software available from the OEM to do it.
Finally, and this isn't what I'm taking an egg off for simply because it's personal preference, but I wish that I could use these with bluetooth. It's nice having wireless on my PC, but it's kind of a pain having to use the wire on my phone. I'd like to simply change my headphones to channel 2 and use them with my phone.
Other Thoughts: For the price these are a great headphone in terms of build and audio quality as well as features from the box. However, the battery life is terrible. I unplugged them from my computer at roughly 10:30 and they literally died in the last two minutes, so before 2:27.
While my cons may be longer than the pros, they do not outweigh them. Do not hesitate to get these headphones if you do not need to use them wirelessly with anything other than a computer or PlayStation for more than a few hours. The sound quality is excellent and the build quality better. There were some cosmetic plates described in the manual and while you can remove the ones on there I cannot find any to replace them.
Only things I'd suggest Sony improve upon are software support for Windows PCs, battery life, and personally I'd like to see a version without the PlayStation logos.
This review is from: Razer Electra Over Ear PC and Music Headset - Black
Pros: They're extremely comfortable with a great amount of sound containment as opposed to the Orcas which might as well have been speakers over your ears. They also have great sound quality and the ability to swap cables out is a plus, not to mention the fact that it comes with two cables.
Cons: Not really a con since they do say this, but the microphone needs either a splitter or an inline jack.
Other Thoughts: The people saying that Razer is trying to buttrape you for having the inline jack are talking nonsense, if you can't see the mic and there are 1000 sources or more that tell you "Hey! This isn't a regular mic!" then DO NOT BUY IT!
It's great for people like me who have a separate mic on our desk because of the greater audio quality.
