Impressive

 

A friend and I wanted this, so I bit the bullet to try it and now we are getting two of them. This is my second one as my first one was open box and didn't work at all.

5.1 Surround sound ; 7.1 Surround sound emulation sounds perfect. I use this setting ; Mic Works good

Not as comfortable as they look. They dont cover my average sized ears very well and they are a bit tight on my head ; Had a weird problem with distorted/mangled audio until I restarted after installing them ; I wouldn't say these are super user...

Very poor craftsmanship

 

They were replaced, but shipping prices became an issue. Almost my very last purchase from NewEgg, but they would only give me in store credit despite verifying the problems with Rosewill.

The first one worked for several months and sounded ok. Mic became an issue as did overall sound, and then it ceased to function. Checked on various USB ports and computers to no avail

1st one broke in a few months, second one broke with in weeks, third one did not work out of box. by broke I mean mic cut in and out and echoed, complete loss of microphone sound. Headphone sound declined and stopped completely. Third replacement -No...

No Windows 10 updated driver

 

I'll be looking to purchase a new headphone, but I won't consider getting these again. It was a decent purchase at the time although I can't recommend them. Save your pennies and get a better headset even if you have to spend an additional $20 more.

The surround sound is passable as is the bass. The microphone sound quality is also passable. It's obviously not studio quality but it's better than telephone quality and good for Skyping, MMOing, or doing Twitch or Youtube videos ; The drivers in...

The material around the ear cups have started deteriorating after one year of light usage ; Not suitable for wearing over long periods 2+hours. The pressure on the top of the cups becomes uncomfortable and there is very little pressure at the bottom of...

Truly immersive sound!

 

Great sound quality and good stereo imaging. I use it to play World of Warships, and believe me the subwoofer and rumble feature makes the booms BOOM! So much more fun with great sound

None that I can think of or even remotely expect to find

Great Headphones

 

I've had these for 4 months. Used them maybe 20 times because they get uncomfortable. Will likely try to sell them soon and get something else

Great sound ; Great Bass ; Easy software install

Gets uncomfortable after about 30 minutes of use

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

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.
