I gave up after the second replacement. Pretty trashy headset overall

Pros: It technically functions as a headset, so if you have literally no other options, this can work as your audio.

Cons: Absolute garbage mic quality.

Flimsy plastic that doesn't allow any real adjustment.

The price isn't even that great once you consider how cheap earpods are, and even those have better mic quality.

Other Thoughts: The first headset was DOA, so I sent it back. The second one worked, but the quality was so bad I thought something had to be wrong and sent it back again. Third time I realized that these weren't going to get any better and made do with them until I could upgrade to anything else.

Have had these for 10+ years

Pros: 10+ Years owned, still work like the day i got them
Sounds is okay

Cons: Not as fancy looking as other headphones
not a 7.1 sound, etc.

Other Thoughts: Bought these super low price maybe $35 over 10 years ago, they are by no means BOSE headphone sounds, but they work and haven't had any issues yet.

Good product, but not built to last.

Pros: Great sound.
Very comfortable velvet ear-pads.
Removable mic.
Still working after three years of constant use but see Cons.

Cons: After three years of regular usage, the cable insulation is getting brittle and cracking. It still works at this time, however, I fear that the wire under these cracks will crystallize and break soon.

Huge disappointment!

Pros: Very low price (when I caught them on sale).
The microphone works.

Cons: Out-of-the-box failure.
Mic on/off switch of dubious value.
Questionable reliability.
Somewhat flimsy construction.

Other Thoughts: Picked up two of these when they were at an unbelievably low sale price, then let them sit unused for a couple years.
Pulled them out a few days ago for a trial run and found BOTH headsets had the same issue.
While the microphones worked well enough, I couldn't get any sound from the headphones! I thought the front panel jacks on my PC were bad! I checked a cheap, junky pair of headphones on the PC jack and they worked fine. Tried the Fatal1ty headsets on my boombox and got barely any sound with the volume knob up all the way!
I had also picked up a refurbished Turtle Beach headset a ways back and tried that on my front panel jacks, that headset worked flawlessly. Since the Creative headsets were way beyond any type of warranty, I just threw them out and kicked myself for having wasted the money in the first place (and not having tried them sooner).
I can't even begin to recommend them at the obscenely high price advertised now.

Best headphones I've ever had...for the OLD price

Pros: - Great sound.....for the OLDER price (see cons)
- mic sounds very clear, is adjustable and DETACHABLE
- Velvet ear cups are like a soft head hug....BUT....(see cons)
- nice cord length
- lightweight and very comfortable for long periods of use.....BUT...(see cons)
- they look pretty nice too

Cons: - Price on these has DOUBLED (due to the demand) since I got my first pair more than 5 years ago. At the current price near $70 I would recommend looking for lower priced or better quality headset.
- Velvet ear cups, while comfortable, absorb hair and skin oils/dirt over time (even if you think you're a clean person) and are not easy to clean. These deposits can leech out wherever you set these headphones down and leave stains.
- The light weight can make them feel fragile. Consider your own personal rage levels while using these.
- detachable mic can be easily lost if you're not careful

Other Thoughts: I've now owned 2 sets of these in more than 5 years. As stated above, they were amazing at their OLD price point (somewhere between $30-$40). Other companies have copied many aspects of this design and now have headphones at equal quality/comfort at a much lower price. Check around.
