I like 'em!


I use these strictly for gaming... I tend to be hard on headphones. These have held up, nicely, for over a year. No, they're not bleeding-edge... but they do the job. Good value.

Good sound ; Fairly comfy ; Inexpensive

KOSS SB45 3.5mm Circumaural Multi-Media Stereophone


The microphone is incredibly sensitive, which can be a good or bad thing depending on how you want to use it.

Honestly, I really like this product. It fits extremely well for my head, and the noise canceling is second to none! The cord is long enough for me to be able to get up and move around the room a bit to grab something, and still maintain a conversation...

Lack of in-line volume control and kill switch for the microphone. This is the only reason why I rated it 4 out of 5 stars

I bought these for my brother and he won't stop talking about how cool they are. Good bass, really comfortable and very adjustable. He actually plugged the headset into his phone and was walking around outside talking to me through it. Sounded great to me

They're currently out of stock! I want to buy a pair for myself now

KOSS SB45 3.5mm Circumaural Multi-Media Stereophone


Voice clarity is great, very comfortable to wear for hours, which is a big plus for me when I'm on a flight sim

The microphone boom cannot be adjusted any closer to your mouth

2nd time buying...


Like I said, around 2 years with this headset and I'm returning to buy another pair. Some may think that the lack of volume control on the line is a con, but I've had terrible experiences with the wires breaking at the controller that its just not...

Good sound quality, good mic quality and best of all - no volume control on the line! Also never caused my ears to sweat during long gaming (or chatting) sessions. You will also not hear any background noise, which is great if you have loud roommates*....

I think one to many trips did mine in. Traveling from home to college and back for about two years with these headphones caused the mic line to break right where it goes into the left earpiece - good news is I can still listen to music, bad news is the...

Great Headset


I got this headset as a medium quality one to do some gaming, and even some video editing with and I do say, it was well worth the money.

The actual sound quality of this headset is superb. It has a very full sounding bass. The structure seems to be very sturdy and could hold up in daily use. The mic quality is way more than I expected for a headset of this price; I actually got some...

On me personally, my ears get sore after a couple hours of wearing it. This isn't that big of a deal though because every headset I've ever worn regardless of the price or quality has done this (I must have odd shaped ears.) The only real negative I...

If you complain about this headset being uncomfortable I believe you are impossible to satisfy. The only reason I'm looking for a new pair is because a friend mishandled them harshly and broke an ear cup off. Sure anyone can say they should be more...

great sound quality for the price and comfortable. Boom mic with wind guard is great and even bends to better fit your preference

the cables seem rather thin and I'd worry about them breaking. At one point I thought they were shorting out but the issue disappeared after awhile

Outstanding Headset


wish it had a removable Mic but its no Big issue

Great Sound,Mic and Overall Design. Also feels like a DJ headset that my friend has just blown away when i plugged them in and turned that music on

Consumer review by:

Worst Headset ever


It's really too bad. They really feel great. Poorly built tho..

Nice fit. Doesn't hurt your ears

On the first set the MIC stopped after a month. Newegg replaced without a question. The second set worked until tonight. Don't move your head, the MIC will stop working

Great Budget Headset!


Some of the reviews said that these "don't have bass". Well, they do. Sure, it might not be as much as a $300 pair of subwoofers strapped to your head, but it exceeded my expectations. These are a great improvement over my previous headphones, which...

Good quality microphone ; Very comfortable ; Good bass (with Windows audio enhancement settings slightly tweaked) ; I listen to a lot of techno (happy hardcore, mainly), and the bass is certainly good enough. :) ; The headset gently holds onto your...

Cord gauge seems a bit thin. I always take great care of my equipment (not meant to sound dirty >.>), so this shouldn't be too big of a problem for me. Just putting that on there for some people who aren't as careful as I am
