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...

Mic dead barely after a month

 

Wish this died a few days ago so I could return it!

Comfy

Mic dead BARELY after a month, hardly used as I was traveling for three weeks of the duration of the ownership of the headset. Not appeased

Consumer review by:

Explosive sound Great price

 

Didnt try the mic yet

The sound quality is amazing. Went to retail store and some turtle beach headsets were on display. Even the $149 pair was junk compaired to these. These Rosewell pair has crisp hd sound and extremely hi quality base. These are like 3D sound because of...

There are 3 base/vibration settings. Off/medium/high. The explosiveness on high setting is sometimes to much. Im good with medium setting

Rosewill RHTS-8206

 

I give this product 4 eggs only because of the extremely impressive sound, I'm a self proclaimed BassHead. If the sound was average I would give it 2, maybe 3 eggs due to the microphone failing in most situations.

Great sound from this headset, you can boot the bass considerably high without any distortion of the higher frequencies. This can be credited to the vibration, which is basically the same feeling as force-feedback in a controller. With default...

The microphone isn't very good, Teamspeak is generally "good enough" but with most in-game voice chats it is useless, CounterStrike especially. Changing the physical microphone offered no improvement. Because the microphone can unplug from the headset,...

Meh

 

The mic on my first one broke shortly before the 1 year warranty expired and rosewill customer service was excellent and replaced it for me at no cost. The mic on my replacement set is not completely broken but has developed very loud feedback after...

Nice sound, almost comfortable, not bad value...but expect a little more quality out of a $50 headset

2 serious issues: Mic goes bad, Headset can't be made small enough

Amazing for the price, but have a back up mic

 

This pair of headphones beats out a lot of the competition in most categories. might bother some but didn't bother me is that the in line volume buttons change the system volume instead of being independent. would be five stars if the mic construction...

Got these things a little over two years ago and they are still kicking strong to this day ; Great sound quality from these guys, great directional sound for gaming and the the bass vibration is perfect on the first setting ; Blocks out quite a bit of...

The mic is my main issue and was many users' issue when i ordered it. The mic had some difficulty staying at the angle I wanted and kept rotating in its socket (didn't affect the mic volume or quality, just annoying) and eventually the mic jack ripped...

First Impression

 

I got this on sale with a 20% off promo coupon, and I had $30 worth of promo gift cards as well. So I ended up paying about $17 for this headset. For that price? Best headset ever! I can't complain about some of the cons for that price. If I had paid...

First impression - AWESOME ; After getting the drivers installed (more on that below) I was ready to put these on and blast some noise through them. They are very loud! But the sound quality seems great to me, but I was using a cheap 6 or 7 year old...

Okay, first con ; The drivers were a little tricky to install on my Windows 8 machine. I had to run them in compatibility mode for it to even run, and even then I thought it was going to fail because it took FOREVER to install. Luckily it worked once I...

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.
