Poor Quality

 

I have always had bad experiences with ASUS, but I thought I would give these a shot. Silly me! Not worth the money.

Very comfortable headset. Looks nice as well

ANC is a joke, doesn't work at all. Loud hissing and popping sounds while plugged in to any device I could find. Sound quality is poor ; RMAing for a refund. I will be buying the Corsair 1500s

Bad Mic RMA In progress

 

I was hoping to finally have found a decent gaming headset. It seems almost impossible to find any worthwhile. Either they sound really bad, mic sucks, uncomfortable, or the cord cracks out. Will do RMA through Newegg and hope the replacement works.

Look awesome. Seemed pretty comfortable albeit basically just trying them on

Mic doesn't work. Noise canceling doesn't seems to do much. When plugged into USB sound card they gave off a buzzing sound. (This was only with USB sound card. When plugged into PCI sound card and on board sound this went away. Although my bose...

Awesome headset

 

Compact! Came with a carrying case. Sound quality is top-notch! Provides a near surround sound effect. Haven't used the included mic since I don't do voice chat in my games. Styling is simple, clean and functional

None! I'm completely satisfied

Best ever.

 

best and most comfortable headsets i have ever tried. I used to buy cheap ones every year one set a year for the last 5 years from best buy. NEVER AGAIN> well worth the 120 i spent on theses

NONE, i might buy a sound card in the future to get more power out of these cause onboard is only OK> thanks

Awesome - But don't bother with the ANC

 

If you're looking for COMFORTABLE headphones, look no further. If you want better sound quality, add $70+ to your budget. I bought a Tactics Sigma headset from Fry's; the sound was pretty darn awesome (I'm no audiophile, though), but they didn't even...

EXTREMELY comfortable. I got this based on the other reviews saying they were comfortable. I bought them based on those reviews. They get 5 eggs from me just for the comfort factor. They fit my needs and my budget

Sound quality. Other reviews mention the sound quality is average at best - and it's true. Don't even bother with the ANC - the result is garbage sound with most of the bass and mid missing. I think one reviewers comparison of holding a seashell to...

Great headset - but unable to use it fully

 

I am having an issue with my laptop and the microphone, whenever I use the microphone the person I am talking to hears a loud buzzing noise. But when I remove the AC adapter from my laptop, the microphone transmits my voice clearly. Its my laptop...

Detachable mic ; since its analog, you can take them and use them with your ipod, or whatever, and not look like a goofball ; VERY VERY VERY Comfortable ; can wear these for 4+ hours without having and problems. I also wear glasses sometimes, but the...

None with the headset, (See Below)

Excellent Headset

 

This headset is not meant for audiophiles. It is meant for gamers who like to use their headset exclusively over speakers. It will not and cannot compare to a set of professional audiophile grade headphones that you'd buy for 300$, but then no 130$ PC...

Probably the most comfortable headset I have ever worn. I have a huge head (I'm 6'3") and this fits comfortably on my head. After hours of gaming and watching movies my head isn't the least bit comfortable ; Sound quality is exceptional for a stereo...

No 5.1/7.1 Surround ; Mic isn't that flexible, however it's about 1.5" from your face, which is exactly where it should be ; It costs money and not spaghetti

Best Headset on the market.

 

If you are willing to spend the money these are the best out there right now. Perfect combo of great sound quality, great mic, great sound isolation and the best comfort I have ever seen on a headset.

Great sound quality, not as good as my Sony MDR-V600, but I would not expect a headset to be anywhere near as good as studio monitor headphones. Best headset I have heard and I feel comfortable using these for music instead of going to the trouble of...

ANC works, but flattens the sound somewhat. I would not recommend that you turn on the ANC while playing music and I keep it off in general because the natural sound isolation on these is more than enough. It feels like it's an unnecessary feature...

Awesome

 

This headset was my first gaming headset, and probably my last, until they break, then I will buy them again. Detachable mic means I can wear em in public without looking like a complete nerd (even though I am). Detachable cable means that if you...

Not really a con, but it would have been nice if they provided an extra cable that isn't as long, for use with a portable audio device. ANC kinda hurts my ears after a while, but I dont use that feature much, because it reduces audio quality

Mic Went Dead After 2 Days

 

These are excellent headphones, the ANC cuts out all noise in the background. They fit comfortably and they're portable

My microphone is producing nothing but static noises now. Asus does not offer support for this product
