3 out of 5 eggs Comfortable but Mic has issues 12/06/2016

This review is from: Plantronics Rig 7.1 Surround Sound USB Gaming Headset + USB Amplifier

Pros: Pretty comfortable! No faux leather that makes my ears hot. Plantronics uses a breathable cloth meterial that I much prefer and a big reason why I ordered them. Decently light weight and fully over-the-ear design. Sound quality for both gaming and music is what you should expect for the price. Its not bad but a little too much bass for a well rounded headset.

Cons: While the design of an interchangeable microphone system is a good idea in theory, it definitely needs some more refinement. No matter what audio input I use on my computer or laptop, and I have tried 3 different ones, I get a humming and strange rumbling type of feedback from the microphone when I am being completely silent. The moment I turn off the microphone it works perfectly without audible feedback. I have spent a good month trying to tweak it with different audio softwares and sound recording programs Etc.. Nothing fixes it. My best guess is that it is poorly wired and poorly insulated. So you get what you pay for, for $30.

Other Thoughts: I'll say it again, you get what you pay for.. I tend to disable the mic when gaming alone and using this headset because I enjoy the comfort and lack of heat build-up due to the cloth they use on the ear cups. But when gaming with friends I go back to my trusty Logitech g330.

1 out of 5 eggs Absolute Garbage! 11/21/2016

This review is from: Logitech G Saitek Pro Flight X56 Rhino HOTAS

Pros: It looks like it would be great.. That's the only nice thing I can say about it.

Cons: Defective right out of the box-
1. The stick has a out of place hitching/clicking internally when rolling right. It's like there is no Lubrication.
2. Throttle tension dial does nothing.
3. Throttle has a loud "Click" sound when coming back from the most forward position.
4. Throttle's lower Rotary is put on so crooked that it has plastic on plastic contact when reversing and gets stuck.

Other Thoughts: I owned an X-55 Rhino. It lasted a month so I should have known better than to buy another Saitek product. Logitech's name may be on this product now but it was manufactured before they bought Saitek/Mad Catz.

DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL, THEY ARE DEFECTIVE!
