Can't go wrong for the price. I like them a lot. They are comfortable and affordable if you don't want to spend too much for the better headsets. Also it's for voice chat only and not the game sound.

Cheap and way better than regular xbox 360 headset. Crystal clear voice input and output. I love them and the idea behind them

Static output and input

Cant beat this headset at this price. WAAAAY better than microsoft or any other mics at this price range.

Good sound and you can hear out of speaker ear too with the open design. Good sound on other end from mic. Friends say its much clearer than standard mic

Clear mic also picks up EVERYTHING. If you sit close to the tv with the volume at a decent level, the mic will pickup the louder sounds. Starts to become uncomfortable on my ear after a couple hours but may be due to my large ears
