Don't buy it


It does what it's supposed to

Poor sound quality, uncomfortable, expensive, and I have to unplug it and plug it back in every time I turn my PC on just to use it. I have had much better headsets for half the cost. Look for something else or you will end up regretting it just as I have

Don't buy if you want to use on your right ear.


I should have read the reviews first yes, but I also think this should be in Newegg's decription.

From Sennheiser you expect good sound quality and you get it, the headset was reasonably priced too. The only thing I would say in a negative is that the plastic is a bit chunky and it doesn't fit your head very snugly. Overall a good cost effective...

hearphone and mic


this would have been better with 2 ear phone as i am deaf in my left ear and could not change it to right ear so my son gave me his he said its good

Consumer review by:

Don't bother


I bought this headset only to return it immediately after. That's because of a major design flaw, this headset is designed so that it does NOT sit on your head or back of head or upper neck...which ever you prefer. The cheap design of the 'head' part...
