Poor craftsmanship

 

Take a pass on these. I'm very disappointed in their durability.

They sound great for the price. There a little tight, but for the most part are comfortable

They get very warm with extended use. They are made of cheap plastic. Mine cracked in less than a year and are unusable at this point. Be very careful when pulling them apart to put over your head because they will break

PLANTRONICS GameCom 377

 

Had them for 4 months and the plastic broke on one side where it bends to put them on your head. I took a look at the other side and a crack is developing there as well. Great headphones but they don't last long.

Great Audio ; Inline Volume Control

Mute Microphone switch gives feedback over VOIP applications ; Flimsy Plastic

Good Head Phones

 

3 eggs this time...1 for NewEgg...2 for the Sound and comfort and -2 for the breakage...

Excellent sound quality, Excellent comfortness

The platic head band breaks way too easily. This is my second pair and I will not buy another. too much price for an easy break. The same time I bought my first pair i bought one for my son so actually this is my third pair and all 3 have broken

Consumer review by:

Great headset!

 

Nice snug comfort, great quality cord, sound adjustment is great, good sound quality and the hidden microphone is sweet! Overall great headset, 5eggs

The only thing I found wrong was that the inner padding for the ear is very thin and can irritate your ear after about 5 hours, i got use to be but no need to take off any eggs

Consumer review by:

Super comfortable, good sound, a little quiet.

 

A good pair of cheap gaming headphones. They aren't incredible or anything, but sound good and are very comfortable with a nice mic.

These things sound really good, and are crazy comfortable. There is so much padding, especially on the band, and it makes even super long periods of use fine. They can fit a little tight on the head but otherwise are excellent

If you are looking for a pair of cans for privacy/to avoid bothering those around you, these aren't for you. They leak sound like crazy. Not an issue for me though ; My only real critiques are that A) these cans are pretty quiet if you are plugging...

Good Set

 

Great pair of headphones, just need a bit strong building materials. Good towards budget.

Had these set for about 3+ years now and the cord, input, and mic still work great ; Besides

Only down side is that I like one ear uncovered to listen to room conversation and broke the plastic bridge after extending it a bit to far. (Using duck tape to hold it together now)

Consumer review by:

Great budget buy!

 

Great buy, I recommend if you just want the conversation to be personal and with enough clarity to be heard.

Pros ; Really affordable for over the ear head phones ; Not a lot of sound leakage. If you are near someone with the Beats over the ear head phones you can hear a lot of their music ; Pretty comfortable and not very heavy ; Inline volume control

Cons ; Microphone is not really long, but you can still have good mic volume nevertheless ; Volume control is a little heavy(you can clip it to where it doesn't sling though ; Sound is not VERY loud like you would expect for the size, but I mean...

Worthwhile

 

As mentioned above in the Pros, it's not bad for gaming, though tbh, there are other things out there that are "better" For this price however, if you've nothing else, it'll do the job nicely It was my first taste of an actual gaming headset and...

Great sound. Usually seems rather balanced. Not too much treble, not too much bass. "It Could Be Sweet" by Portishead sounds just as good on these as tech death or black metal, imo ; Alright for gaming. I used to use it pretty reliably in Left 4 Dead 2

The volume wheel is odd. When I turn it all the way to max, it goes to maximum volume and then it lowers a little and sounds a bit unbalanced.. To fix it I just turn the volume all the way down and then all the way up again. Not sure why this happens...

What a jip.

 

im so mad. now i have to go through the hassle to try to return it. arrrg..

the only good thing about this was reading the reviews and seeing that alot of people saying good things about it and actually ordering it and waiting for it to come

the bad part is that when opened my package and was so excited to use it and pluged it in, only one side of the headphones worked. (the right side)
