Not Circumaural


These headphones aren't terrible but they aren't worth $50 either. If you were able to get them on a shell shocker for $30 and the fit of the ear cups isn't a big deal then I'd say buy them. I however will be returning mine.

The headset has good sound quality and the microphone picks up very well. Audio is good and voice comes in very clear

The headband has a very cheap feel to it. It is not easy to adjust. The actual ear cups seem to be barely attached and flop around unless you are wearing them. The cord is not of very high quality. The microphone does not swivel all the way and is...

Good Headphones


They are good headphones for the price range but I believe they could have invested a little more into a more solid construction.

The Headphones have good mid to high range sound when listening to music and playing games. The Microphone is clear with no distortion when speaking loudly into it. The headphones are well padded and dont get uncomfortable after long hours of use

The overall construction feels a little cheap and easily breakable. The headphones have decent bass for games but not enough for my taste with music. The microphone does not pick up voice well when it is not directly over the mouth

I wear glasses and I love these no pressure is applied to the ear only slight pressure around. goes around the ear not over it. other than that these things are perfect for gaming and music! it isn't a toaster oven for your ears either I've worn them...

The only thing I see is that the arm that goes on your head could be angled better but it doesn't bother me, other than that these things are perfect for gaming and music

HS-600 review


I did not think I would return to re-review, but over time, these headphones turned out to be alright. It is connected to an Audigy 2zs card.

The microphone works better than any other headsets that I have owned ; Clear sound

The first three months they were uncomfortable, they scratched my ears

ok headset


This headset is recommended for gamers. very good bass and sound just if as you were listening to a soround sound system. nice volume control with the mic. on/off ; sturdy 3.5 connector plugs

too long of a cord gets caught in my rolly chair all the time. not long enough to go behind desk though. cord very fragile. if you roll over it you might make a kink in the wire inside the plastic coating. the ear cups are a little irritating after a...

ok mic.


Very nice bass for this mic. beautiful sound. its like if i was listening from my logitech speakers with the subwooffer on. its worth the price. the jack plugs are nice and sturdy. also very comfortable

the wire part is a little delicate. if you have a rolly chair i wouldnt advise you to roll over it. could cause some wiring issues

Cheap cost, cheap design


Affordable solution for a headset. Not very comfortable. The earcups are ok, but could use a bit more padding. Overall, good quality microphone for gaming. Just be cautious when getting the long dangly cord stuck on things... pulling on it will break...

I'd say the sound quality (and microphone) is good enough to give it 4 or 5 stars, and the added bonus of having volume (roller) and mute (switch) controls

The design is kind of cheap. The whole brace that goes over the top of your head is a very strong/sturdy molded piece of plastic that flexes. Though a big no-no with this design is that it needs to flex a whole bunch in order to fit over your head,...

Creative HS600 3.5mm Circumaural Headset


First microphone boom headset. Next time I'm going to a store to look at them first.

Affordable, comes with seperate volume control and microphone on/off switch

Muffs aren't big enough to cup my ears, instead it just smashes them

Creative Inspire T10 2.0 Bass Speakers


I bought these Creative Inspire Speakers after my old speakers had blown out from too much bass exposure. I was just looking for a decent pair of speakers for a good price. I came across these and decided to buy them, and to my surprise

terrible headset


I bought this 6 months ago and it was one of the worst headsets i've ever bought for starters it isn't really noise canceling because when i was playing a game called black hawk down at 6 in the morning the birds were singing and when i pressed the key...
