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

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...

Surprisingly good headset

 

Wasn't sure how the vibration thing would be but it's very cool; it adds more immersion when gaming or even watching movies. At times it seems a little too strong for some effects. I wonder if there's a way to reduce the amount of vibration, but I...

Great headset for the price ; Vibration adds immersion to gaming ; Design eliminates outside noises well ; Comfortable ; Detachable gooseneck mic

Some white noise is audible without other sounds ; In-line buttons do not light up ; In-line indicator lights are too bright ; A little bit heavy, not sure how this compares to similar headsets ; Mic volume very low even on max ; Problematic drivers...

When I bought these I wasn't sure but after 3 months of playing games I was Blown Away. These WERE the most amazing Headphones I have EVER had in one game I could feel the Elevator moving in my head by the these. I say get these BUT don't they are a...

Mine just quite working after 3 months don't know WHY I Never abused them. I loved them and they Broke MY Heart. Look at these there are work of Art that don't last then to have to throw these in the Garbage after 3 months is SAD

Consumer review by:

Amazing

 

I didn't expect it to be this good. The sound is absolutely amazing and the vibration option will change the way you experience sound effects in games (explosions will feel real) ; Are comfortable even after extended use and they cancel a fair amount...

The cable is absolute garbage and gets tangled . All electronics should come with braided sleeved cables, especially those you move around everyday like the head set and the mouse (my mouse has the sleeve and i'm very grateful for that)

Consumer review by:

Excellent deal!

 

I had to change some software settings for optimal results - First, don't emulate 7.1 sound !! Select 5.1 and disable DSP mode..

Excellent, clear highs with deep bass (vibe) units - True 5.1 Surround - Good mic

The speakers could stand be to a bit further apart, increasing separation a bit, but still excellent for the price

Great No Frills PSU

 

not worth buying if you have to buy a new pair every 7 months!

Can detach mic

The right side of my headphones have stopped working after 7 months. I can get the vibe to work on the right side but that's it. No kinks in my cable, I'm thinking something on the inline volume controller circuit board went bad ; ear muffs way too...

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.
