Decent but fragile


Other reviews talked about the mic not working well especially on Skype. I had the same problem and found out it was actually my audio driver and skype clashing for control. A quick fix can be to manually set your driver and skype, then turn off...

Easily adjustable to fit over either ear, was comfortable enough to fall asleep while wearing

The cord going into the earpiece gets a lot of abuse and can be tugged out too easily braking the headset. Miss having stereo sound and the earpiece is a bit uncomfortable until your ears get used to it

Who designed this thing...



Completely worthless. It is incredibly unfortunate that they are still able to sell this thing. It does not fit on your hear, the "funnel" does not fit in your ear, & the actual mic quality is mediocre, never mind that it is impossible to use

Worst mic ever


I too, made the unfortunate mistake of buying this hunk of junk at wal mart cuz my freakin cat chewed through the cords of my last $15 (not too shabby) headset. I will never trust wal mart again!

uh... you can kinda hear sound... I guess

uncomfortable, mic doesn't work, not even an earpiece, more like a funnel that points into your ear

Terrible terrible headset


This headset just served to remind me why I should look at reviews before I buy things. I bought this at Walmart because I needed to use right away. My last headset was pretty cheap and worked superbly but this head showed me that all cheap headsets...

Won't stay on ear; very uncomfortable; sound quality is pretty bad; terrible design

Product should be discontinued.

Microphone function does actually work... but

Does NOT fit on your ear in any way at all. You can kind of get it to sit on top of your ear, but if you move your head it will fall off. Absolutely horrible design. Worst ergonomics I have ever seen, don't buy. Just get a cheap headset, like I ended...

Please for your own sake, do not waste your money on this garbage. I thought my last logitech $30 headset was bad, and thought it was, this is a new low...

Newegg + fedex = amazing, got it 2 days early! though, now I wish I hadn't

EVERYTHING! Horrible design, Cyber Acoustics trie to make it look appealing by aesthetics but don't be fooled, this thing is garbage ; 1- Doesn't fit to your ear AT ALL!I spent a good 20 minutes trying to get it to stay in my ear, but it was the most...

Well worth the buy


Well worth the buy considering the price.

Fully adjustable ear piece. You can remove the flexible ear piece and flip it around so it's possible to use in whichever ear you feel is comfortable. Small chord, so running it over with your chair won't hurt it.

The sound quality isn't the best, had a lot better quality with my last headset, but it does it's job.

all in all great buy for what your getting

very light and comfortable, i can wear this thing for hours! I happen to wear glasses and after about 3 hours of gameplay my old headset would start to hurt my ears from the compression of my ear to my glasses temple. Great product, sound is decent and...

took a while on how to figure out how to wear it, you need to have the weird looking flat black piece on the ear piece facing the front of your face and then bend the part that secures it to your ear to conform to your ear. After that its smooth...
