Genius HS-04SU Headset


With Nikhil and Nash reviewing so many action games it's the right time for me to do a headset review – so why don't I take up a device one can use for PC gaming and also chatting on Skype/MSN? For the latter in particular the headset's quality is very...

At Rs 660, I think this device is a good buy for multimedia buffs and gamers. Music does not sound too good – the mids are too sharp – so gaming SFX and voice chatting is the way to go. My one gripe is the comfort level, which isn't perfect. You have...

Not a bad little headset


I haven't tried the mic, headphones sound good for their size. have had some problems with the phone jack. It will lose right or left sound like it is loose.(too small)

Strange Buzzing sound


When I use the mic to talk with others they tell me they can hear a constant and annoying buzzing or whistling sound. I hear the same if on occasion. Not sure if it's my rig or the mic.

I will not buy these again and don't recommend these to anyone that has more than 30 bucks to spend. just bought Tritton AX51 Pro Series, much better and much more expensive.

It has good quality sound for the price, mic doesn't pick up background noise, and is very flexible. Did I mention they were cheap

After about 3 months the mic became very loose and wouldn't stay up any more which wasn't too much of a problem because it was flexible enough, a few months after that the left ear quit working, but it I messed with the cable enough it would work...

bad choice


really bad - microphone doesn't work after using it for just one week
