Consumer review by:

They are awful for gaming or music.


I could have returned it, but it would have being wrong, as it does work, the only problem is that is bad. I'll gift it.

Small, comfortable, have a mic

The audio is pretty bad, compared with the other headset they are selling for 30 without a mic. I sat on that one before by accident..... I have a better Ear Force X12 now though

Pay the extra, get the PC161 or better.

Sound is decent, microphone sounds ok

The quality of the construction is pitiful at best. They do not fit your head well and are not comfortable to wear for extended periods of time ; Sennheiser PC161 are only slightly more and 40x better build quality

Not worth it


It is definitely NOT worth the forty dollar price tag. If you're going to spend money to get a microphone, you REALLY should spend the extra 30 to get a halfway decent one. I made the mistake of buying a cheap one, and now I'm stuck having to spend...

It has a microphone, and the microphone works ; The sound quality is almost average, but I use speakers anyway ; It has a really long cord ; Comfortable to wear, although it doesn't feel very secure on my head

The microphone quality is terrible. It is bearable for things like Skype calls, but if you want to game with a microphone, stay far away from this one ; The microphone piece doesn't extend out very far, so I always feel like I'm about to bite down on it

Comptent headset, good value


I picked up this headset at the "mini J&R" at Macy\'s Herald Square and have been using it for a day. I like its understated design and solid construction. This is an open ear headset and does not fold, so it\'s primarily for desktop use. This is an...

Not a noise cancelling microphoe


Sennheiser need to stop putting NOISE CANCELLING on these products. There is no such thing on the microphone or on the headphones. If you want to cancel noise from a microphone recording you need a really good piece of software. They are falsely...
