Junk

 

I don't think anyone makes good headsets anymore, roll the dice, flip a coin, whatever. Maybe you'll get lucky.

Mic worked great for about two weeks

Mic died after two weeks. The sound quality was like listening through a can. Sounded awful compared to my 20+ year old Sony walkman headphones

Happy so far

 

Stereo sound not the greatest. Microphone picks up voice fine. Volume control works fine. Overall, very satisfied with product.

Good value for the money

 

For the price, this is a good piece of equipment. The ear pads take a bit of adjusting to make them feel like a good fit. The sound is passable,but if you buy them for chat and not listening to conceert hall music, you will be pleased.

This headset has a nice long cord (6 ft.) and in-line volume adjustment. Both are features most inexpensive headsets lack, and for me at least, they make this headset a lot easier to use, especially with laptops in less mobile spots where you don't...

ok, not great

 

My head is kind of big so your comfort mileage may vary. They're not too bad for the price. I'll use them till they don't work anymore but when I rebuy I'll go for something a little better.

Cheap. I bought 3, mic seems to work pretty good on all three. No one on the other end ever reports difficulty hearing me ; Comfortable enough to wear for a half hour

I have difficulty hearing with all three. The speakers in the headphones are not very good. Also the input volume and output volume seem to share the same dial and can only be adjusted separately on your PC. Kinda makes the dial not so useful ; Not...

Genius HS-02B 3.5mm Connector Supra-aural Headset

 

I Was rather rough with them i am surprised they lasted for the six months. over all a decent product

Consumer review by:

good, cheap headphones

 

good deal

Very good price, came in clear through the mic. Useful in games and the headphone quality isnt bad. Comfortable enough to play a game for hours without it being annoying

Probably my bad, but I thought microphone wasnt working at first until friend changed some settings on windows and had it working perfect. No problems since

Unimpressed

 

if the mic would have worked, it would be a very nice little headset.

Sound quality is perfectly fine, as headphones they work with no problems

The mic has never worked at all. Mic DOA

Consumer review by:

Good quality, Low price

 

While Skype sound quality is perfect with my desktop there is a bit of a noticeable feedback hum in the mic on my laptop. Headphones sound great on laptop though. Don't know where the mic hum is coming from as yet.

Great quality for the price. Wanted a headset for Skype. Works great with my desktop, excellent sound quality on both mic and headphones. Very light and very comfortable but on the delicate side. So you have to take care when using it. Cord is 6' long...
