Review UPDATE! 5 STARS!

 

Best headset under $100 flat out. Buy it.

AMAZING Sound for music and games. AMAZING customer support. Had a unit with a faulty mic that was replaced by Rosewill's great support after they saw my review

One big thing - DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE/DRIVERS THAT COME WITH THIS! Just run it off of the win7 drivers. The software causes some issues with Windows and will make this a less than perfect experience

Amazing headset of pure bliss

 

First of all, the sound. Oh dear lord the sound. I had no idea what I'd been missing with my good ol' budget speakers. My games are so much more vibrant, now. It's like a whole new dimension has been added ; The vibration feature is fantastic. It's not...

They're just slightly too big for my head. I'll have to tape some foam to the band over the top so they rest on my head better. Otherwise, they're very comfortable. It's only after a couple hours that it becomes a problem, but once I do this, should be...

Terrible Drivers?

 

These were a pain to get to work out of the box. Finally got the drivers to work and it was great for over a year. My son disconnected them one day, and when I plugged them back in, I couldn't get the mic to work at the same time as the headphones....

Had ok sound and decent surround when it worked

I've installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled the software that comes with the headset repeatedly, and the headphones and microphone will NOT work simultaneously ; This is a copy and paste from another review. There are several people with this issue...

definitely buying another pair...

Sound is amazing. I love music with bass and these make it so much better to listen to music. It's like a massage for my ears whenever I play music/videos

I have to take them off

Very nice

 

Note: I was VERY hard on my first set, they got abused pretty bad, I am much easier on my second set now. I originally bought them 9-5-12 and RMA'd the first set 5-6-13. The first pair with abuse lasted about a year. I still have the second set with NO...

Good build quality ; Crisp highs, clear mid range and powerful low notes, very good sound ; Surround works well ; Get very loud ; The vibration is a nice touch in some applications, like when your playing a game and an earthquake happens it adds a very...

Heavy, which is only an issue when I drop something and look down to pick it up, they tend to droop down ; The ear cushions undid themselves on my first set, had to reglue ; My first pair started crackling in the right ear, eventually the right ear...

Rosewill RHTS-8206

 

Overall very happy with the purchase. Docked one egg because of weight+discomfort. Haven't tested the microphone yet but based on other reviews it seems to be proficient. At $40 this was a steal as I needed a headset and the sound quality of this...

Price: I got them on sale for $40. Definitely great value at that price ; Vibration: I was playing a lot of BF4 and the vibration really adds to the overall feel of the game in the best way possible ; Sound Quality: Sound quality is excellent, great...

It runs a bit on the heavy side. Not that its a major problem unless you are literally an infant or if you like head banging to your music ; The weight leads into the next problem, comfort. After an hour using it the first day I noticed a bit of...

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.
