Cheap for a reason.


You're better off spending a bit more because this headset is nearly useless.

Inexpensive, decent cable length

Broke right away where it holds the mic into the rest of the headset. So now it doesn't stay in place. Horrible sound quality... Even with zero background noise, everyone says it sounds like I'm in a jet turbine. The earpieces cover my ears but rather...

Worked gine, until...


Wish I'd read the other reviews before purchasing

They were inexpensive

But they broke first one, then both sides within a short period after purchase. Obviously not designed for someone with a slightly above average sized head

I love it


Maybe a padding over the mic. Because it sometimes picks up me breathing.

Its a great headset, it's comfortable. It's really affordable and they last forever. I have had them for over a year and still running healthy. They get constant abuse and use from my family and I. Great headset i really recommend it. =)

So far I haven't found anything wrong with it

Great for the price!


Newegg rocks!!!

Decent sound, microphone actually works, cable length not too bad. For the price this is a great headset

Microphone can't be adjusted too well and has to be placed directly in front of your mouth in order for it to work

Great for what it is


For normal internet voice chat such as IM and gaming, it's perfect. If you are in a business that needs many headsets for Skype or something, this is perfect. Decent quality microphone for normal internet voice. Really.

1. It's three dollars

Low Price Works Well


Works great with motherboard Asus P4P800E-Deluxe

If you need something cheap to use in PalTalk, MSN Messenger, Steam, YIM, Skype, or what ever this isnt a bad start. You get what you pay for but I have found that a lot of the cheaper headsets work just as well as the higher priced ones so for me they...

For the price none

Bad Batch


I got one of these a couple of years ago and it worked great. I left that pair at a friends so I ordered 2 more recently. As the Cons section states it didn't work out so well.

it's great if it works

Bad workmanship. Got 2, one had a wire that was not soldered on so that the left speaker didn't work, the magnetic coil was not glued in so the left speaker didn't work in that one either

Why the heck not.


i bought these as a joke christmas gift and they lasted about 3 weeks longer than anybody could have guessed for a whopping total of 3 weeks before the mic gave out.

it costs 3.99

it costs more to ship it than it does to buy it

You get what you pay for


It's one of the cheapest headsets available here. I've bought one for skype and couldn't be happier. Sound quality is OK for VOIP, and sucks for everything else

This is a cheap headset. Never even think about using it as audio headphones for music
