Explosive sound Great price

 

Didnt try the mic yet

The sound quality is amazing. Went to retail store and some turtle beach headsets were on display. Even the $149 pair was junk compaired to these. These Rosewell pair has crisp hd sound and extremely hi quality base. These are like 3D sound because of...

There are 3 base/vibration settings. Off/medium/high. The explosiveness on high setting is sometimes to much. Im good with medium setting

Rosewill RHTS-8206

 

I give this product 4 eggs only because of the extremely impressive sound, I'm a self proclaimed BassHead. If the sound was average I would give it 2, maybe 3 eggs due to the microphone failing in most situations.

Great sound from this headset, you can boot the bass considerably high without any distortion of the higher frequencies. This can be credited to the vibration, which is basically the same feeling as force-feedback in a controller. With default...

The microphone isn't very good, Teamspeak is generally "good enough" but with most in-game voice chats it is useless, CounterStrike especially. Changing the physical microphone offered no improvement. Because the microphone can unplug from the headset,...

Meh

 

The mic on my first one broke shortly before the 1 year warranty expired and rosewill customer service was excellent and replaced it for me at no cost. The mic on my replacement set is not completely broken but has developed very loud feedback after...

Nice sound, almost comfortable, not bad value...but expect a little more quality out of a $50 headset

2 serious issues: Mic goes bad, Headset can't be made small enough

Amazing for the price, but have a back up mic

 

This pair of headphones beats out a lot of the competition in most categories. might bother some but didn't bother me is that the in line volume buttons change the system volume instead of being independent. would be five stars if the mic construction...

Got these things a little over two years ago and they are still kicking strong to this day ; Great sound quality from these guys, great directional sound for gaming and the the bass vibration is perfect on the first setting ; Blocks out quite a bit of...

The mic is my main issue and was many users' issue when i ordered it. The mic had some difficulty staying at the angle I wanted and kept rotating in its socket (didn't affect the mic volume or quality, just annoying) and eventually the mic jack ripped...

First Impression

 

I got this on sale with a 20% off promo coupon, and I had $30 worth of promo gift cards as well. So I ended up paying about $17 for this headset. For that price? Best headset ever! I can't complain about some of the cons for that price. If I had paid...

First impression - AWESOME ; After getting the drivers installed (more on that below) I was ready to put these on and blast some noise through them. They are very loud! But the sound quality seems great to me, but I was using a cheap 6 or 7 year old...

Okay, first con ; The drivers were a little tricky to install on my Windows 8 machine. I had to run them in compatibility mode for it to even run, and even then I thought it was going to fail because it took FOREVER to install. Luckily it worked once I...

Great Headset for a reasonable price

 

Over All guys if you are looking for some affordable USB 5.1 sound headset. These are not bad, especially vibration makes it sound better. Software makes the sound go even more clear. You wont regret if you buy it.

Absolutely amazing Sound ; Mic is precisely well balanced ; Well done material

So far None, but i used my front USB 3 port every time i would open an application it would stop for sec, Then I plugged it in to my back USB 3 port. Ever since no lags

2 Months, Broken

 

You get what you pay for I guess. Unfortunately, I had just thrown away the packaging a week or so before this problem arose, so there is no chance of any sort of return.

Loud ; Clear sound ; Cheap

Uncomfortable. They do not press inwards very tightly, causing them to almost fall off if I look down, despite having them as tight as possible ; After about two months, sub-woofer in right ear has begun producing a buzzing noise. I bought these for...

Surprisingly Awesome

 

These headphones are very nice! Sound quality is better than any other thing I've used. Nice deep bass and the vibration function can really put you in a trance if mixed with some good electronic music

Comfortable ; Great Sound Quality ; Easy Install ; Cheap

None that I can find really

Consumer review by:

good sound, bad mic

 

If you want a good pair of headphones simply for listening to movies or music it is a great buy. However if you are looking to buy for chat use for games I would not recommend.

Has very good sound and if you like rumble features on a headset it was very solid

However, the mic boom broke on my first pair within 2 weeks of owning. I got a replacement pair for just the cost of returning the old pair's shipping. the new pair came with a broken mic that wasn't even wired into the headset and just fell out of the...

Product Specifications

PowerSpec the brand and PowerSpec the company are built on the simple concept of More for Less. The creators of the brand envisioned saving the "techno-savvy" computer buyer substantial money in three ways: offer simple configurations, and mainstream technology, so customers don't pay for either what they don't need or what's too expensive now because it's too cutting edge; make sure all components are the lowest cost for an acceptably high standard of quality, that cost decreases are relentlessly pursued and the savings quickly passed on to customers; drive down manufacturing costs and eliminate extra expense layers - large manufacturing overheads and resellers' markups are just not part of the PowerSpec formula.
