A little flimsy

 

They are comfortable and the sound quality is great. They are just a little more flimsy than I was expecting. For now, I am happy with them and they do what I want them to do for gaming without paying a premium price.

Update of Previous Review

 

This is an update to my previous review: After a great amount of effort, I was able to get these to work reliably. The adapter they send presents a couple of problems. First, it is junk. The connection is very sensitive, and you will find yourself...

Decent sound for $10 ; Semi-Comfortable Fit ; True Stereo ; Sensitive mic ; Included adapter will allow you to use this with a computer, you can also use it with a tablet or other device

No sound insulation, mic will pick up some headphone sound ; Mic looks adjustable, but feels like it would break if I played with it to much ; Mute buttons does not work ; Volume can be low at times depending on mixing ; Adapter is trash

Price vs Quality Good

 

For the price it is worth the pocket change.

The 6ft cord length is excellent and the sound quality is very good for an inexpensive head set. The headset as a volume control to allow easy +/- volume setting. I have used the mic on Skype several time an no one has completed so far about the sound...

The 6tf cord must be unshielded because it constantly coils no matter what I do. If you plug it in and just it down after a short time you will see it start to coil up. It seems to have no effect on performance but is it amazing to watch

Great product

 

The clarity on this mic is very clear and the sound is impeccable. The only issue I have is when I have my glasses on and this is around my ears,and when I take it off, my ears are very sore. Other than that for the cost, they were well worth the price...
