Okay

 

Good mic but for the money I would recommend investing in something else.

Great sound. Great Mic. Sleek but simple design.

Very uncomfortable, hurts my ears about an hour after wearing them and gives me a headache. The usb cord has a very weird texture and rubs against the shoulder and makes a really loud noise through the headset, sometimes affecting my ability to detect...

Absolutely incredible

 

I was nervous getting these at first. They were refurbished, and some folks had had problems with them. But I've had no issues, and the volume power is GREAT.

Despite what the product is called, the audio is NOWHERE NEAR 7.1 surround. sure its surround, but it sounds very muffled, I am guessing it is a lack of treble or the vacuum created by the ear cups. That brings me to another point, the ear cups are...

I bought this headset for 40$ Best choice.

 

I would say buy then and recommend it to friends. Worth even buying it brand new.

I bought this headset for 40$ it came as if it was brand spanking new. It's very comfortable. It shoots out sounds so if you're in a loud house bye bye noise. :D Wire is rope like so it doesn't matter if it bends some. The might adjustable. Sounds is...

No cons, I've had this things for almost a year now and it still works like brand new

Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

This is a nice gaming headset, but it's not a headset for everybody. If comfort is not a problem for you, then I definitely recommend you get this headset. Otherwise, I would save your money for a better headset.

Sound quality is pretty good (compared to my last pair of headphones, some generic $20 headphones) ; Mic sounds really clear ; Headset is adjustable to fit to your liking ; Headset folds to make storage or traveling easier ; Headset has a really nice...

These things are very uncomfortable (at least for me). I have plastic-framed glasses, and after having these headphones on for about an hour, it feels like pins and needles, and I just end up putting them around my neck. This might not be a problem for...
