Good quality sound but...


I have never had issues with Newegg or Rosewill products before but I guess when there IS a problem they totally screw you. I'm giving it two eggs because of the static issue and the poor replacement. Make sure you check all the choices before getting...

The headset does everything it says it does so that's good ; The earpieces are comfortable ; The mic is flexible and detachable ; The earpieces have good flexibility as well ; The volume, mute, and vibration settings buttons are all in one place ; The...

The software for the headset isn't very good ; The mic doesn't seem to work to good in games ; When I bought the headset I received it and it worked improperly. It would make a static noise after about 10-15 mins and after the first 10-15 mins it would...

Great when it works


Not sure what happened to my replacement but because of the static issue, the software, and the false replacement I'm giving this product two eggs. I'm hoping that someone just accidentally put the same broken headset in a new box and sent it back to me.

Does what it's supposed to do ; Mic is detachable and flexible ; Earpieces are flexible ; Vibration works really good ; All the adjustment buttons are in one place ; It's decent;y comfortable

The software for the headset seems outdated and it isn't very good ; Not comfortable with glasses ; Mic doesn't seem to work good in game ; When I first got the headset it made a static noise after about 10-15 mins of use and would do that randomly...

Not for glasses-users


Make sure you're wanting a usb output for these.

Great sound qualilty

it presses my ears up against my glasses. The headphones are pretty heavy, so it's pretty uncomfortable unless I move the temples of my glasses above my ears

Good for the price


I have owned this pair for 6 months. I have owned two other surround headphone sets, a Logitech G35 and a $200 Tritton Pro+ 5.1 and these seem almost as good and cost way less!

Good sound, easy to setup through USB port. 7.1 surround is pretty good for headphones with some adjustment needed in the software to sound correct. Good enough bass response without vibration turned on

For some reason the sound stops working spuriously. Tried reinstall, checked USB ports, looked for update. I found if I switch USB ports, the sound comes back for a while. The vibration simulates bass response but it picks up a hum from some radio...

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...

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.
