5 out of 5 eggs Best Headset For My Needs 02/27/2015

This review is from: SENNHEISER GAME ONE 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset

Pros: Overall design is sturdy.
Velvet ear pads are very soft and comfortable, allowing ears to stay dry after extended use.
Both ear pieces can be adjusted up to 18 notches (57mm) from the headband.
Mic arm is sturdy, easy to adjust yet stays firmly in place where you set it, and has a wide, 135 degree rotation.
Volume wheel is easy to reach and rotate.
Cord is very long. Almost too long. What am I going to do with all this cord?!
Speaker quality is perfect, having just the right amount of bass and treble to make every song, conversation and movie pleasurable.
Mic quality is just as amazing as the speaker quality, being very crisp and clear while capturing very little "fuzz" noise.

Cons: A little tight during the first weak of wear, but better tight than loose.
Price. This headset cost me $266 after shipping and taxes, but from what I've gathered after a month of use, it was well worth it.
Both aren't things to lose an egg over though.

Other Thoughts: I bought this headset because I wanted a durable headset with a high quality mic and speakers that would allow me to listen to music and other people at the same time without having to take it off, and it allows me to do just that.

The open ears make it very easy to pick up sound from other sources. How easy? With music playing at 25% volume I am able to barely hear my friends from 30 feet away, and it completely blocks everything else out at around 80%. If you don't want to hear outside sources that clearly, I'd suggest putting in the extra $40 for the G4ME ZERO.

If you wear glasses, your head will start to hurt within 2 hours of first use. I've used this headset daily, and after a month it's now gotten loose enough that I'm able to wear it for up to 6 hours at a time without head pain.

While talking to others or listening to a recording of yourself, you may hear that the mic picks up very faint "fuzz" noise. This isn't a problem with the mic, just that you have your microphone level up too high. To set it lower in Windows, open the Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, click Sound, click the Recording tab at the top, select the microphone for your headset and click Properties, click the Levels tab at the top and lower the slider. I have mine set at 24 with a mic boost of 0, and my friends on Skype say they don't hear any fuzz anymore but I'm just as loud and clear (my Skype volume is at 65%).

Overall, I am a very satisfied customer and owner of this headset.

Pros: Speed, price.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My ASUS Z97-A marks these sticks as being 1333 MHz instead of 1600, so I had to go into my BIOS and set the RAM frequency from Auto to 1600.

Pros: Everything about this case rocks.

Cons: This exact same case is sold on another website for $10 less, plus free shipping, meaning you'd be saving $30.
