Mic broke realllll quick.

 

:(

Only pros are that the sound is fine for a $20 headset

Broke really quick ; What happened is that whenever I talk my mic echoes itself. I have talked with some people who are experts on this and they all say that the mic is bad. So have at it

OK for price.

Works

Headphones are weak ; Microphone can be weak at times

These were fairly inexpensive and worked well for the better part of a year. I used them for Skype, gaming, and a Rosetta Stone language course. Overall, I was happy with my purchase.

1. Great sound ; 2. Good microphone for Skype, gaming, etc ; 3. Long cord ; 4. Volume control on cord

1. Microphone holder broke after about 11 months of light use ; 2. The padding around the ears is much too thin - this hurts my ears after approx 30 mins of use

An affordable option for gaming and chatting.

 

I have not owned many headsets, but so far I am glad I made this purchase. Believe me when I say you can't beat this combination of price and quality.

The headset is comfortable because of the cushioning on the earphones as well as the top band that goes over your head. It also does a good job of eliminating outside noise - my roommate has to yell at me to get my attention. The microphone picks up...

When chatting online with friends, they said they could hear what was coming out of the headset's earphones through the mic. The sound from the earphones can be quite loud if your system's volume is at max and you have the dial on the headset cable...

Look elsewhere

 

If not for how uncomfortable they were for me, I'd probably have just made do with these. As it stands it's not worth it to RMA them, and I've ordered a different pair of headphones.

Cheap. Ok mic. Long cord. Blocks outside sound well

Headset hurt my ears after only 15 minutes of use. Sound quality was lower than some even cheaper headphones I've had in the past. All tones are a bit too low/bassy. Outside sound is blocked so well that you can't really even hear yourself speak when...

Good Headset but isn't super comfortable

 

These are great headphones, with a good mic, but I can't game with them for an extended period. I knocked one egg for being uncomfortable for long term use but would highly recommend this product if you are looking for an inexpensive yet good quality...

High quality sound, good microphone, easy to adjust microphone boom that doesn't go limp, lightweight, and inline volume control

Ear cups will be uncomfortable after an hour of use. I guess my ears my be shaped weird but most other circumaural headphones I have don't give me discomfort so quickly. It doesn't feel like its clamping my head but it puts pressure on certain parts of...

Consumer review by:

Not really circumaural.

 

At the end of the day these are good head phones for the price. Good for a quick set until you can get better ones.

It does a good job for the price and they sound better than you would think ; You can easily move the mic where ever you want it

They say circumaural, but the pads thin out so soon it just rests right on your ear ; Some times you might think you are muted with the switch on the cable but its just making static, all you have to do it flip it a little

Overall, a great headset+mic for the price. Would buy again if I manage to break mine.

Very nice headset for the price. Haven't noticed any dip in sound quality. Headset is comfortable once you get use to wearing it (I originally used ear buds). Sound wheel works great. Moveable microphone is still holding up well after 6 months. Nice...

Cord is so long that I trip on it sometimes, nothing that a zip tie can't solve though. Ears do hurt after 3+hours of wearing it, but that is on and off and might be from me not setting the headphones on correctly in the beginning

Consumer review by:

OK for about 3 months.

 

bendable boom mic's are pretty cool.

cheap, they sound pretty good for $20, mic quality was ok

mic went out after 3 months, voice is drowned out by buzz ; RMA process was non existent, never got emailed back
