5 out of 5 eggs Some more comments 01/25/2014

This review is from: SYBA GamesterGear P3210 Rumble Effect PC & PS3 Wired Gaming Headset

Pros: everything

Cons: slight hiss, not real noticeable...may just be my PC

Other Thoughts: I have to make some comments because I think some of the reviews on here make some unfair points.
Build quality: yes, they are plastic, not metal. If you are gentle with them they will be just fine...if you just drop them on your desktop when you are done or are rough with them then they may don't be rough or drop them. I think the quality is excellent considering they are mostly plastic. Mine do not "rattle" when they are on my head? Maybe don't listen to metal music and headbang with them?
PC compatibility: They are absolutely compatible with PC. You have to have a little knowledge when setting them maybe read the included instructions which clearly shows how to set them up on PC. Plug them in..go to control panel>sound>playback tab>right click on the headphones and make them the "default communication device" the "game" slider and the "chat" slider both work I the hard is that?
Rumble effect: Works as advertised. They really do "rumble" when you turn the slider way up...its kinda cool. I don't use it for music but in gaming on a lower setting it really adds to the it a very 3d feel...hard to just have to feel/hear it. If you don't like rumble, turn the slider all the way down. I like the extra bass speaker...and the abiltity to use the slider to set it where i need it...for music it is awesome!
I've had these a few weeks now and I CANNOT game without them...they really enhance the sound in Fallout New Vegas for me...blows me away how good that game sounds in these. This was the best $35 bucks I spent in a long time.

Pros: This is the 1st pair of headphones I have ever bought..seriously. I am more of a PC gamer than a music listener. I was looking for some "gaming" headphones for me and my son so we can talk while playing Battlefield 4. I looked at quite a few before coming across this one. I didn't want to spend more than $50 for a pair and I got these when they were on sale for $34.99! I promptly bought 2 pair and hoped for the best. I've been using them for a few days and they are fantastic! The sound quality in games is awesome...gunfire, explosions, voices, etc sound amazing..the extra bass you get with these really makes an impact. The mic is great and voice quality is crystal clear. What really shocked me was how phenomenal they sound when listening to music. I have a Creative X-Fi gamer sound card and with the Creative audio console and the Creative console launcher and using X-Fi Crystalizer and the "Theatre" setting with the EAX effects all my music sounds amazing. Highs, mids, Bass, percussion....really superb. I also have DFX Audio enhancer running too which also adds to the overall quality. Without a decent sound card and some software I don't think You'd want these for music but with my set-up and some time spent tweaking I have the sound just perfect. These are incredibly comfortable too....after a few minutes I forget i have them on...very light and comfy..and the padded earpads are very sweaty ears. The only negative I can give is I hear a slight hiss when there is no audio playing which sometimes comes thru slightly during the quiet moment of a song. I'm not sure what causes this? either the ground for the 3.5mm plug or the USB connector may be to blame? Don't know if its the headphones fault or my PC? Either way it doesn't take away from the sound at all....its barely noticeable. I have a Yamaha 2.1 PC speaker set that I have been using for years and LOVE but I think I now prefer using these headphones...the sound is just more enveloping and "real". If your looking for a really good set of headphones and can't afford the likes of Steel series or Turtle Beach then these a real contender. I'm very happy with these...especially at $35.

Cons: slight hiss

1 out of 5 eggs dissapointed! 12/29/2012

This review is from: Microsoft JWD-00046 Black USB Wired Standard Keyboard 200

Pros: its black
has all the keys I need

Cons: it's way too light! holding it is like holding a feather...I had to duct tape 20 dominoes to the bottom to weigh it down! horrible!
A few keys I have to press really hard to make work. I was expecting better from Microsoft.

Other Thoughts: buying something else real quick. will keep this in the closet for emergencies.
