Great Quality Until Defect


Had the headset for maybe 12 hours and the mixer attachment stopped working, thus cutting all sound and mic options to my headset. I still could plug in the headset directly to the 3mm port but could only talk or listen. Well whats the point in having...

Great sound, amazing clarity, booming bass (seriously pick a song that has intense bass and you'll feel your hair stand on end), mixer attachment is pretty awesome (while it lasted), SUPER comfortable and lastly the mic doesn't make me sound like I...

Feels cheap and flimsy

1. Amazing sound coming with 3 different modes ; 2. Very good bass ; 3. Very comfortable after being worn in

1 and 1 only absolutely horrible mic. if you plan to record games with clear voice this headset isnt the one for you. i would much rather have gone with turtle beaches or astro if you have the money

This is the first interactive gaming headphone for me. It\'s quite nice in terms of looks, ease of use and the quality of sound.

new experience


it comes with a really long cord which is nice i can velcro it with industrial anywhere i like,(the plugin to the usb adapter) but the actual plugin to that is pretty short.. take in mind anything u listen to sounds great..... looks and sound cool as...

once i was able to get my settings right this headset is comparable to my mtx's, but better i had to turn them down as they were a bit too much and they don't shake the house.. just me.. being no reviews i took a chance but liked the look and a few...

cons, hmm with my lifestyle they might be a bit weak in quality.. only time will tell that aspect.. other then that none.. the 15 year old looks at me wanting a pair.. i say get lost

Great sound


The headset is amazing, the sound is awesome, the comfort is great....well not so great when you wear it for a long time.....the top of my head started hurting but I think that's just me? I wear glasses but I don't feel the hear cups putting pressure...

The sound, the design, the bass

Headband hurts

Amazing headset!


I've had several different headsets for gaming covering all different brands from Logitech, Razer, etc and now Skullcandy. I had always heard great things about Skullcandy but I'd never actually owned any of their products myself.I decided to give...

Great headphones


These universal gaming headsets are perfect for me. What doesn't rock my socks is the amount of wires it comes with. it comes with 3 wires; 3.5mm (common size for audio), 2.5mm (xbox plug size) and something like vga cables. Each wire is 1m to 3 or 4m...

Universal and looks great
