beware

 

I was very pleased when I first bought this headset. I do play WoW everyday, but I do not beat my gear up. 6 months down the road, SNAP! I now have a duct-taped headset. Hence why I am on here(looking for a new headset).

very comfortable ; mic is flexible ; wires are good length

same as everyone else stated.... it snapped at the top

Walmart

 

the middle hinge broke,so I took a strip of scrap aluminum and soldered it on and it still worked...so meh...if you're really interested in extending the lifespan,or got conned into buying these then have at it

none

I owned these for about a year...basically I bought them at walmart and they were so flimsy they broke every 2 weeks-3 months,I had the life span varied between the different pairs....the only reason I bought so many of them was because walmart did let...

breaks

 

i thought they were pretty good for what i needed them for up until they broke.

good sound quality, mic works well

after 6 months of ownership the top hinge broke. very stupid design on hp's part, why make a plastic hinge. also, have to build up a tollerance for the pressure the head sets puts on your ears, hurts after about an hour

STAY AWAY FROM IT

 

This product has a life span of less than 1 week if you are a heavy gamer. I am never ever going to get a headset from HP. Third headset that broke in less than a week. I dont know if its bad luck but it tells me not to get anything from HP becuase...

nothing really after 1 day

This piece of cr*p of a product broke after one day. Walmart wouldnt let me return it because if was broken.(hinge). Only lasted one day

Consumer review by:

Stay Away!

 

If it weren't for the plastic being so brittle, these would be a decent choice for a value headset. The sound quality is good, as is the microphone performance. But there is no way you should spend money of these as I can guarantee they will break on...

Decent sound and mic ; Fairly comfortable to wear for 2-3 hours max

As already stated by other reviews, the center hinge is extremely weak and will break on you. Mine lasted only a week or so before the hinge broke. I was able to jury rig it by cutting off a butter knife and bending the blade to a curved shape, then...

HP KJ270AA#ABA 3.5mm/ USB Circumaural Premium Digital Stereo Headset

 

Bass = 40hz and you can still hear it.

Great sound quality ; Good mic quality, doesn't pick up outside sounds ; Cheap

Extremely uncomfortable until you get used to them ; After awhile the mic started to pick up more sounds other than my voice

Consumer review by:

FAIL

 

I think I got roughly twenty uses out of the headset before it too snapped in half.

Inexpensive

Replacement set broke just as quickly as the first set

Consumer review by:

Sounds Great!

 

I'd skip this item until they fix the frame... the plastic hinge is trash!

The sound is great and the mic is very good! However

I too had it snap within the first two months or so... and because I'm cheap, I took two small aluminum strips, bent it into shape, put one on top and on the bottom (of the frame). Then I put some cotton balls over the aluminum and taped it up. After...

Consumer review by:

Great sound, cheap frame

 

Same electronic components in a design without the stupid "hinge" (what the heck is it for, anyway?), and they'd have a winner that I would buy again.

Great sound, good mic, improved my FPS gaming without a doubt. Far more comfortable than many other headsets I've tried

Same as other reviews, top center "hinge" simply fell apart in my hand upon removing them from my head after almost exactly 2 months of ownership. Never dropped or sat on. Just lousy design that couldn't handle the flexing of normal use. 4 tiny bits of...

While they lasted

 

Would have been a 4 Egg review if not for them snapping in two in under two months.

Great sound, great microphone on them

Broken in less than two months. The top center "hinge" snapped and now I have the added joy of returning them ; They get uncomfortable on your ears after a few hours into the game
