Decent

 

This is a decent headset, I wouldn't say great and I wouldn't say poor. The sound is great and if you have ears smaller than 2.75" they should be comfortable. I don't know how anyone can use the vibration feature with the hum that the motor makes. The...

I've had these for 6 months and they work fine. Sound quality is really the best part of this headset. Mic is fine for in game communication ; The headband is comfortable, the ear cups are just a bit too small for my ears. I wear these for 7-10 hours...

The mic picks up a lot of background noise. There's just a bit of feedback present in all my streams and recordings. I can edit most of it out in my recording, but they're not ideal for streaming ; The ear cups make your ears very warm. I'm bald, so it...

Great Headphones. Then there is the price

 

No problems with the mic other than the included pop filter will fall off over time, but it's no really needed anyway. No egg dropped for that.

When I bought this headset I was just looking for a cheap 7.1 headset. I had no idea that these would be so good. The sound is amazing for the price. I had thought that the vibration feature was complete B.S., but and a big one here, it's really not....

The Highs could be better. But to get this quality for this price. You cannot complain. If these where 120$ I would say that the way the bass vibration happens on low volume videos can be annoying, but there is a switch to turn it off while watching...

Great value!!

 

Overall, amazing value. I picked them up for 39.99 which i thought was a steal. First headset i have owned for gaming and I would highly recommend them.

Very comfortable ; Awesome Mic ; Nice noise cancelling ; nice controls ; Long USB cord ; Good clear sound ; Plug in and go ; Really good bass

The cons are small but worth mentioning ; Control box can snag on chair or desk if not arranged properly ; The sound at first sounded like it had too much bass....but was fixed after adjusting settings ; Not a huge fan of the vibration setting but can...

Not perfect

 

It sounds amazing for the price

Clicking the buttons will reset the headset. the bigger problem is the mic won't be detected by anything only the software itself (Skype, mumble, obs, audacity)

Solid headset

 

For the cost, a solid headset. I'm not willing to spend $200 on one, and this one does the job well enough.

Good audio, relatively comfortable

The "vibration" can enhance the experience, but often is overpowering if not obnoxious, especially when on "2 ; After a few hours they lose begin to cause some minor ear discomfort ; The microphone has a limited rotation and range of movement, which...

Good headset, won't last

 

Plastic holding together the ball and socket mechanism for the cups (which allows the cups to swivel) will break off after continual use. Pressure is applied to that area whenever you pull the cups apart to put the headset on your head, after a while...

This headset has great sound quality, some of the best at this price ; Vibration is pretty unique idea, and it sorta helps in immersing you into the game you are playing ; The microphone is absolutely outstanding for the price, it doesn't even need the...

Do not buy this if you want a lasting headset ; Plastic pieces on headset will break easily

amazing head set. absolutely great for gaming.

 

This head set has served me well for 3 years now. The virtual 7.1 surround sound is by far the best I've experienced. The vibration has been the most enjoyable feature I've known in a head set. really keeps your ears from hurting over time. Especially...

A few things I think Rosewill could have improved on was the Bass depth when vibration isn't turned on. They are a bit lacking on that side when it come to wanting to blast some bass worthy music ; one other thing that I've noticed; if you aren't...

Worth Every Penny

 

The surround sound is good, but no magic here: headphones still have a hard time replicating a real world experience.

The sound quality is quite good - I'm not an audiophile but I am happy with the performance on that end. The bass vibration though is amazing! Whether it's music, movies, or action games, you get used to the rumble and not having it there in other...

Slightly heavier and bulkier (less-comfortable) than I would prefer, but I think you can get the feel of it from the pictures and know what you are opting into

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.
