Rosewill RHTS-8206

 

The sound quality is pretty good, and the bass feature is nice

My head hurts after about 1-2 hours of use. Its so bad that it's almost migraine inducing. I have adjusted the headphones every which way I can, the only thing that seems to work is if I prop small objects inbetween my head and the headphones. I...

Rosewill RHTS-8206

 

The reason I gave it 5 instead of 4 stars, even though it wasn't immediately or directly damaged by me was the fact that it took a year and a half of moderate abuse before any one thing stopped working, and even then it was non-essential and easily...

The sound is impeccable and the vibration isn't just a gimmick, it really does add to the experience and makes the sound more whole; with the right EQ it massages your head ; The fact that this headset has lasted me 2 FULL YEARS is outstanding. These...

After about a year the strain reliefs on the cables started to, ironically, destroy the sheathing and wires, beginning a rat's nest. The wire sheathing also slowly becomes more stiff over time - likely the cause of the fraying and sheath breakage - but...

Twice RMA'd

 

Would probably be a good headset if not for the microphone issue I had with 2 different headsets. Rosewell Support was worthless, other than being quick to send a replacement.

The sound was pretty good, and the vibration was a nice touch. It was fairly comfortable, but I've had better

I called for an issue I was having with the microphone. It was giving off this horrible static and could not figure out the problem. I called Rosewell Customer Service and asked for tech support, but they just insisted I return it for another ; Today I...

Rosewill headset cheaply made?

 

Purchased 04-24-14, Broken on 10-13-14 The audio is great quality and doesnt distort with vibrations. I have used it for music, gaming, and videos. It hurts your head after about an hour of wearing them, they are a little bulky and the mic will pick up...

HIgh quality audio output ; High quality mic input ; Vibrates ; Loud, if you want it loud ; Great for music

Cheaply made ; Hurts head ; Mic picks up vibration ; Bulky

Rosewill 5.1 usb gaming headset

 

I got these for my younger brother (since the headphone jack on his fairly new asus laptop decided to go out just after the manufacture warranty ended) and I'm quite impressed with the sound. Even though I'm used to my lipsh x7i's that I've been using...

Great bang for the buck ; Amount of modulation/customization within the software ; They fit my head well, almost better than my old Sony MDR-XD200's that I got at wamart (I dropped the L because it's supposedly an inappropriate word on here) for $20,...

Don't seem to be able to adjust the delay between the speakers, even in "virtual surround" settings

@nd Update

 

My new headset is everything I expected. Newegg handled my RMA & replacement without a single hiccup! Every complaint I had has been resolved. Excellent product

Software can be confusing. Windows_7 default settings did not like mic much but got it all to work now

Consumer review by:

awesome headphones

 

worked out of the box can hear every channel clearly vibration function is great adds another depth to the sound would recommend these to everyone

cord could be longer

Consumer review by:

Great Sound, Poor CD design

 

Overall for the price I really like these and it'll be interesting testing them on other games. For the initial test I threw down Saints Row 4 for a few hours and between the music, dub step sections, vehicle mayhem and explosions it handled all...

Awesome bass and sound overall. This is my first foray into Surround Headphones, normally I use stereo headphones or surround speakers of different styles. Still, I like how well it simulated it and the clarity and richness of the audio ; Extra padding...

Cord is ok but could be a lot longer ; In-line controls on the cord are closer to the headphones and lacks a clip or method to attach it to something easily. This means you have this WEIGHT on the wire hanging off your head. Not terrible, but because...

Just Awesome

 

Love this headset. Sounds awesome mic works Awesome to. Loved it so much that I told my friends and now they all have one as well. I don't really use the vibration part to much. But its there when I need it. Will be buying another set soon.

Great Sound, Great Price for Quality

Cord tangles Very Easy

Updated Review

 

I got this on sale for $35. At that price I would easily recommend it to anyone looking for a gaming headset on a budget. At its current price of $50 I would not.

Good overall sound quality, great bass and an above average mid range and treble. Fits comfortably with good padding. Good price point

The vibration function takes some getting used to, but is potentially very cool. Sadly mine developed a static sound when the vibration function was active about a year into ownership ; For some reason when I plug mine into a USB 3.0 slot it doesn't...

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.
