Really Good, Especially For Price.


My cons are hardly cons. But I did a lot of research before purchasing these and have found that they didn't disappoint. I have to admit I haven't tried the mic. However, I recommend this headset.

Great Sound (5.1 is better than 7.1 oddly) ; Fit comfortably (don't squeeze head) ; Vibration is awesome ; Controls for volume, mic, and vibration work well ; Surround Sound software works well ; Made sturdy and are of good quality ; Removable mic

Had to go to the site to download software compatible with windows 8.1, disk did not work ; Color scheme is plain and boring, there is nothing "cool" looking about them

Decent sound, Poor quality


This headset feels cheaply made, but I think most headsets feel that way whether they cost $50.00 or $199.99. I feel upset that I need to buy a new headset again, I really don't know why the right speaker would cut out like it does. But that's what I...

The sound quality is pretty decent, if not a bit muddled sounding. The vibration is cool at first, but then gets a little annoying. Decent sound for a decent price

The right speaker cuts out, and I took excellent care of this headset (I keep it in a place where the cord won't be ran over). I'm not sure if this happens to every headset bought, maybe I just got unlucky. So, buy at your own risk ; If I fiddle with...

Good for the price


Headphones sound great, the vibration feature is awesome

I have 2 complaints about these first they are big and very heavy and if you dont have a big head than they will rest entirely on your ears and not on top your head. The other issue is that they bizz when no sound is playing and vibration is activated....

comfortable,sound great, mic works well

The drivers really really are not good for this device. It also doesn't always work when you're in an application and plug it in. It's also trying to install the drivers often when just plugging it in after already installing the drivers several times

Unbelievably great


Why spend so much more for something that does the same thing and has just as good quality. I will be sure to post another review in a year to show how they worked out.

The sound from these are incredibly clear, crisp and full. The mic works great, and the ear pads are very comfortable. They also go around your ears, not on them. Control box is handy. The vibrate is an excellent addition to bass, in games it is amazing

Took me a while to figure out the mic. Apparently on is off and vise versa. I guess when it was assembled the polarity's were reversed somehow. But I figured it out

Good, sturdy headset so far


Overall, good headset for the price. Matter of fact, the reason I gave it 5 stars is because it was only 40 dollars. Buy it!

Nice sound unless you're an audiophile ; feels sturdy ; many points of articulation on the ear cups ; easy to set up ; sturdy "button panel" (the name escapes my mind) ; nice box ; Feels sturdy overall as it feels heavy ; detachable mic (more in con...

Sometimes when you take off the headphones the ear cups will spin all crazy like and fold up etc. can be a pain to put down sometimes ; the mic boom is pretty stiff ; uncomfortable for a few hours, then it gets broken in ; detachable mic, means you...

Not yet sure on longevity of this headset. Seems to be made well. Have thick heavy duty plastic frame.

This headset works great, I know I have had it only a few day but, WOW the sound is amazing, wish I bought this instead of buying the cheap 20.00 buck one's and replacing them every 3 months. These feel great on your head, like wrapping your ears in a...

Wish it had some kind of clip on for that control box, bu this was not enough to take off a egg

Overall decent quality and good pricing.

Sounds great ; Durable ; somewhat light ; Good bass

Comfortable for the first few months ; I don't have an oversize head so all the weight is on top of my ears. Even on the smallest adjustable setting ; Microphone hold it's position without falling down after using for 4-5 months

Amazing Gaming Headset!


I have been using this headset for a few months now and can honestly say it's the best I have ever used. Very comfortable, Great bass, sound is clear, mic is detachable and very clear, and of course the exclusive function of vibration is surprisingly...

No cons. The only issue I have had though is after upgrading Windows 8 to 8.1 I had mic issues. I just uninstalled and re-installed. That is not the headsets fault though it's Windows

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.
