Great Value

Pros: Amazing price to performance ratio
Long lasting
Mine still works like 4 years later

Cons: head band plastic tearing/dissolving after 3 years not a real con everything still works
Had 2 or 3 times a connection issues after removing the USB maybe its my PC Im not sure

Other Thoughts: I forgot what I paid but I know it was not much and it lasted about 3-4 years and is still working, the fuzzy mic protector and the headband thin plastic is wearing. all the actual functional assets are still completely functional. Very happy overall with the purchase. I thought it was discontinued when I got it not sure but was a great product would buy again.

great sound, great features, great fit... 3 stars due to the foam peeling :-(

Pros: great sound
great fit
great thump

Cons: about a year and a couple months, of course after the warranty has ran out, the foam pads around the ears started to peel like s black sunburn. I still use them, but I hate to say, as much as I love these headphones, this year at PAX EAST I'll be buying a pair of skullcrushers.... I really wish I could get replacement pads for these though, and I wish they lasted longer.... or hell, I wish they failed during the warranty period at least!!!!

Other Thoughts: Rosewill you there? any chance I can get replacement pads for these that are peeling like a sunburn?

Overall Great Product for the price

Pros: -Great Sound Quality, prefer this by far to other more expensive headset.
-Comfortable ear cup
-Vibrate to bass
-Fairly long Usb cable

Cons: -Cheap plastic, I had the product for about 1years and a half and I had to superglue the plastic twice to keep holding the ear cups on my ears.
-Cheap driver installation software, often the flash software doesn't even work to install the drivers I have to manually install it every time I install it.

Other Thoughts: I would say the sound quality and bass vibration are worth the poor build quality of the product. Recommend for the price!

Worked great on windows 7

Pros: Comfy. Sounds nice.

Cons: Does not work on windows 10. There are two volumes, quiet up to 10% then full blast. Microphone doesn't work at all. Driver issues from the company even though they have "windows 10" drivers.

When the rumble is turned up people can hear feedback from the headset. Distorting your voice and leaking your audio.

The control block with the buttons is a little heavy and you can feel it pull down the left side headphone unless you rest it on a desk or in your lap.

Other Thoughts: If you have windows 7 it's great and will last you a long time. Do some research and you'll there is no fix. Buy a different brand if you have windows 10 since it doesn't work.

Find something else!

Pros: it plays great sound and the vibrations are pretty cool

Cons: if it actually does work it would be nice, my computer and all my laptops had a problem recognizing this device, and i would constantly have to unplug and replug it into the computer for it to catch. All my friends on team speak and discord always say that my voice level is so low when all the settings are turned to 100% and im raising my voice on it. They also say i sometimes sound robotic like i have some kind of filter on my settings. Also, when i tried changing the settings around it would completely freeze my mouse and i would have to restart my computer entirely to get the movement back im not sure why that kept happening but it was a headache and i felt bad passing this on to waste management for them to have a headache too.

Other Thoughts: please find another headset, theres more online for half the price and 100x better performance.

Messed up sound

Pros: LOUD and a good mic

Cons: The sound is just too loud no matter how low you turn the volume down. The sound is also noticeably distorted even at low volumes.

Other Thoughts: Don't get this if you care about sound quality.

Used to be a great product

Pros: Great comfort, fit my ears really well could use for extended periods of time
Sound quality is good and the vibrations work well
Very good price for sound quality

Cons: Very loud by default but after messing with sounds in each application its fine
After about 6 months the headset broke, it would constantly turn off and on, switching to a different USB port fixed the problem for about a month however now the headset won't work in any port
the cable coils and rips incredibly easy

Other Thoughts: The price is relatively low, I bought it for around $60 however I bought it in the hopes it would last more than half a year
Wouldn't recommend unless you feel like replacing it soon after purchase

This headset is great but has some shortcomings...

Pros: Great sound
Great bass (the vibration effect works very well, I keep it at 1 because at 2 some music/game audio can rattle your teeth)
Overall good frequency response although there is a 200 Hz wide dip right around 1kHz
Comfortable (for a little while, see cons)
Decent price (It was on sale for me)

Cons: Comfort-ability - They're pretty comfortable, the surround my ears (which aren't abnormally large, but on the larger side) and I don't really feel too much weight. However... after a few hours of use you'll develop some heat/sweating, and if you wear glasses they'll force the tail end of your glasses to squeeze into your head making for a very uncomfortable problem.

Volume, The volume is RIDICULOUSLY loud. I honestly prefer to have a louder set and turn them down then have a set like the Logitech g35's where you can try all you want but just cant get good volume out of them.
Where this falls short is that if you turn down these headphones (tested only on win10) the audio gets distorted, it sounds pretty much like you're turning them up too loud which seems counter intuitive but it makes sense because the subs are actively powered by +5v usb and weak signals will be running hotter than line level which creates distortion.

The only solution to that problem is to turn the bass vibration feature off, but that's kind of why someone would buy this headset..

The mic is pretty short, it works ok (it's on the quiet side) but the gooseneck isn't long enough to properly get it near my mouth.

the only other con is that the inline controller is heavy and will pull the cable down if it's not resting on something causing a slight drag on the left side of your head, I generally sling it around my neck so it rests on my chest.

Other Thoughts: I did have to RMA the headset because my microphone had alot of signal interference, basically if I was playing a game, the game audio was being picked up by my microphone. The reason for this is the +5v power given to the subs in the same cable was basically creating an fm transmitter and copper wires sitting so close to each other tend to pick each others signal up when carrying voltage.

I can't really say whether or not the RMA fixed the mic issue since I just went ahead and bought a desk clamp mic stand and have been using my condenser mic instead of a headset mic since before the RMA came back.

Overall I like these headphones, once I have the money I'm probably gonna pick up a wireless Corsair Void, or a Razer Man O' War, but until then these are doing ok.
