The name on it says it all , quality .


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

Consumer review by:



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

Consumer review by:

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

Perfect for Classroom Use


We purchased these headphones for student use in the computer lab at our school. Their lightweight, compact design makes them comfortable for even young students to wear. And in addition, they\'ve proven to be quite durable in a lab where they receive...

Sounds good ...


This is my 5th Sennheiser purchase over the years . Just headphones before . These were a dissappointment .

These have really nice sound quality

Tne mic is not working that well . I've had a period where it was ok .But now even after trying every possible adjustment on games/steam and my soundcard . To be heard I have to hold the mic next to my mouth and speak loudly . These havent been abused

Piece of Garbage


Never buying Sennhesier again.

None, terrible

Stop working properly, within two months. The mic never worked with windows 7 to begin with, and then one day the left side of the headset stopped working

Consumer review by:

Lightweight Sennheiser


Would I purchase again? I might just look for a heavier built unit..... My wife says, "It is uncomfortable due to the skimpy foam and don't fit right"....I hope it is tougher than it looks......

Sounds pretty good

The ear pieces of foam are a little flimsy and one keeps coming off. The wiring seams to be flimsy too, the gauge is somewhere around 20,22 or so,{I don't plan to use as a jump-rope with it, so I hope it will last}. It sounds good for the moment,...

Consumer review by:



The entire frame is pretty flimsy (or flexible, half-full or half-empty view I suppose!). Once again, if you are even slightly worried about size, try to find one with better fit. I intend to get a new pair in the coming months and I will invest much...

The sound is normal. The cord is long. Nothing has stopped working or fallen off. I have owned this product for a little over a month now

Very uncomfortable. I play video games up to 4 hours at a time sometimes, and they are painful and annoying most of those times (I get headaches from them). I do not recommend buying these headphones if you think you might have an issue with the size...
