The headset won't will uncomfortable for a person who's at least (6-11 years)

As the other user said, it was good for it's price. However, it's functional for me, even though I left it in rough places ; Sturdy ; Good Price

If you have a big head, this will surely be a disapointment for you. Even though the headphone is adjustable, the mic isn't. And it felt uncomfortable compared to my last headphone for gaming. The style of it looks cheap compared to my last one. And I...
