Great sound and interesting look


Great sound, distinctive design, yet still comfortable. Cord a bit short though, unless you put the processor close to your seat.

Perfect...for a PC...


This PC headset is perfect for the PC. Even though a little on the bulky side, it was not too uncomfortable. This is the first over the ear headphones that my ears never got sweaty. Excellent sound quality, although a little light on the base....

Cord Too Short

Consumer review by:



The sound of this headset is very very great, the only poor aspect is the weight is a little heavy, making your head uncomfortable when you wear it over one hour.

Compact","Great Sound

Great sound but not for a laptop


The microphone needs a voltage to work that some lapotops will not provide. Worth to try them in a laptop before purchase.
