Nice for a cheap Mic Headset!

 

All in all I think this is a good mic and considering I go through headsets like no tomorrow, for the inexpensiveness and quality of the headset I have to say, definitely a good spend!

Alright ; 1 egg for the recording quality ; 1 egg for the sound quality ; 2 egg for inexepensiveness ; 1 Egg for foldable options

1 egg for the type of mic it is ; Frankly I'm not too fond of looking like a phone operator while using a headset... I didn't know that that's what it was otherwise I probably wouldn't have ordered it

Genius HS-02N 3.5mm Supra-aural Headset

 

For the price, I shouldn't complain; that's why this headset gets four eggs. I'd recommend something in the $20 range to ensure reliability and satisfaction.

It works fine. Mic quality is decent, sound quality is decent

Broke after about a year of use. There is absolutely no bass on the headphones, the sound is somewhat distant. The mic occasionally echoes

Microphone stopped working - follow-up

 

I contacted Newegg regarding the broken mic and they RMAed it no questions asked. It's great shopping at Newegg

Microphone stopped working

 

I am going to contact Newegg to see what they can do about the broken microphone.

I bought these specifically so I could carry them in my laptop case. They are fairly compact when folded, better than what I had. Sound quality was better then the Logitech 980462-0403

The Microphone stopped working after 2 weeks. Not as comfortable as the Logitech 980462-0403. I would get ear fatigue after about 2 hours of wearing them

Affordable Quality

 

Very nice headset-mic for a very affordable price. However, if comfort over all is important to you, than I'd go for an over the head model.

Affordable, budget conscious price. Great sound quality, good bass. Light weight and collapsible/folding for travel/storage. Removable/adjustable mic. Good cord length, not too long or short (for my desktop PC)

Depending on your head and ear shape/size, these can get uncomfortable over long periods -as is the case with most supra-aural headphones ; The band itself seems a little weak, so take care

Good headset, Great price

 

Can get a little uncomfortable on my ears after about 5 or 6 hours or wearing it. Not a problem, after 5 mins of rest, my ears are ready for another go!

Good sound quality. Good mic quality. What else can i say

When i was setting up the mic, for some reason, i had to adjust the "Rear mic. Jack" boost to get this this mic to be louder, even though it was plugged in the front. It may just be my computer, but you never know, After all; Its a Dell ;D

Consumer review by:

Amazing!

 

I accidentally bought this because I was actually looking for a circumaural set, but this was the best accidental purchase I have ever made.

Great sound quality; more than I expected from such a low-priced headset. Microphone quality is spectacular; it picks up at better quality than my 4x more expensive Logitech headset. Collapsible design and detachable mic definitely a plus

The behind-the-head design can start to hurt your ears after a while. You can fiddle with it a little to make it more tolerable, but don't expect comfort from this product

Genius HS-02N 3.5mm Supra-aural Headset

 

Good price, Good sound, Good microphone. I loved this product, and am planning on buying another

None that I can think of. The only reason it doesn't work anymore is because my brother ripped the chord in half

Definate Buy

 

Good with 5.1 suround sound on Counter-strike Source, head set acts like another 2 front speakers so you can get better sense of whats going on around you.

Light Weight, Durable, CHEAP!!!, Works, Good Sound Quality, Good MIC Quality, oh and it was cheap

Ah, after about 2-3 hours they start to hurt your ears, BUT why complain they were 5 dollars

Consumer review by:

"Loving it"
