Best for price

 

How come they never mention the most important parts of the products in the ads and displays here? Such as size and type of sensor for digital cameras, it is what makes them different....... AND if a monitor has a glossy screen or not? That is the most...

I have had about 5 of these headsets, the Plantronics Gamecon 1, and even bought three at once one time to make sure I had them in reserve for playing online ; Unfortunately, it seems they no longer carry them at Newegg, and others want twice the...

Not available now on Newegg. Com'on NE, get some more please. If you have a BIG head like me, there aren't many you can use that are comfy like these. I am down to like three good sets left

Great Headset

 

Someone stepped on it and broke off the end that holds it to your head, but it still works fine and is comfortable to wear. I'm actually kind of amazed at what little damage it took despite being so cheap.

Good sound quality through the speaker and into the mic ; It's light and fairly comfortable ; Very inexpensive ; Has worked without a problem for a long time

None

Would buy again

 

This is my first headset. I use it for 4+ hours at a time. I wear glasses and was concerned about ear strain. I had to lift the glasses above my ears, where (thanks to the shape & fit of this headset) glasses can rest comfortably above the headset. If...

Excellent price ; Nice and loud. I'm no audiophile but the frequency separation sounds good ; It's analog gear, so it worked as expected without a need for any software ; Long cord w. volume control ; Mic can be swung up for when you do not want to use...

Not really a con, was shipped in a sturdy box but the 'package' was nothing more then the headphones in a bubble-wrapped bag. Not very professional, but arguably cheaper and better for the environment ; The headphone mechanisms are not adjustable. Fits...

I got a bad one

 

would try the brand once more but am still dissapointed i got a lemon

Feels nice around ears and sturdy good design

At louder volume the sound starts to get staticy and when mine arrived the right earphone had lower sound then the left which is somthing i can't deal with. not worth sending it back for a refund though

FREE SHIPPING EMCYSYV36 ENDS 05/13/2010

 

I haven't experienced what some of the other users have encountered (knock on wood) in regards to the poor connection build quality at the in-line volume controls, in either set during ownership. About every 2 weeks I will let the cord de-tangle...

Wow, where to start? These are amazing ; Light, comfortable, good cable length, excellent in/out audio clarity and quality, and an overall solid build on the 2 sets I have owned (over 6 years combined) ; Free shipping (promo in title) makes these...

After about a year the glue tape holding the foam pads on start to wear out. I feel this may have been due to high usage (6-12 hrs per use) and the heat of my head slowly wearing down the strength of the glue ; This has happened on both headsets, but I...

NOT Circumaural

 

4/5 because their primary purpose of prividing sound is fantastic, but I had to remove an egg because of the comfort issue. This might not be a problem for those who will not use them constantly.

The sound is incredible for the price, although I own the USB version. Microphone works well and it has proven durable. Probably the longest lasting headset I've owned (unfortunately- see cons)

This things ARE NOT Circumaural! They are soft on the ears at first, but they will give you soar ears after a little bit of time (only takes me a half hour now)

Impressed by the headphones

 

Great delivery speed as always.

Great sound quality both on mic and headphones ; Has a lot of bass, music sounds great in em

none as of yet

Best headset for money

 

I'm purchasing another set right now.

I've had these for 2 years without a problem until i forgot they were on and tried to go into the kitchen. The cord is long and durable and has withstood many chair-rolls, the sound is great for gaming and the mic is clear and accurate

Easily damaged when the cord is pulled at the earpiece ; Not very good for music

Look no further

 

The sound is very nice, and the microphone is said to sound very good over Ventrilo and Teamspeak. Has nice high freq and low sounds. The mike cutout works well and the volume control is built well with no noise. Has good small stereo plugs, red for...

These are so good that I bought two sets. Best buy for the money up to $80. Have used these headsets for years, possibly 3 years as I recall. I have nothing but good to say about these. The comfort level is exceptional, can wear them for playing BF2 or...

None, the wires eventually come loose in the left earpiece, at a little terminal board in the earpiece. This after about 3 years of hard daily useage. I think one of my kids must have turned their heads fast and forgot the headset was on them
