Great Quality Until Defect


Had the headset for maybe 12 hours and the mixer attachment stopped working, thus cutting all sound and mic options to my headset. I still could plug in the headset directly to the 3mm port but could only talk or listen. Well whats the point in having...

Great sound, amazing clarity, booming bass (seriously pick a song that has intense bass and you'll feel your hair stand on end), mixer attachment is pretty awesome (while it lasted), SUPER comfortable and lastly the mic doesn't make me sound like I...

1. Amazing sound coming with 3 different modes ; 2. Very good bass ; 3. Very comfortable after being worn in

1 and 1 only absolutely horrible mic. if you plan to record games with clear voice this headset isnt the one for you. i would much rather have gone with turtle beaches or astro if you have the money

I really like them


They're really good headphones. They work well with music as well. I have used them with my phone to listen to a few songs and they sounded great. I got them to use with my ps3 and Xbox 360 but have actually just been using them with my PS4 instead...
