You hear exactly what you configure


I would recommend this product to others as a great gaming headset for Ranked League of Legends gaming and Competitive CS:GO

This is a good headset. You configure the sound settings exactly how you want to hear them. If you know a lot about these switches, this is the best headset for you. Its comfortable and durable

make the cord longer. It's kind of short.

Great while they lasted...


Bought this headset from a video game convention in late October 2015. The Surround software wasn't available until about two weeks after I bought the headset. Despite the failure, they were so good for the price that I'm probably going to try this...

-Audio cuts out here and there. -Microphone level never stays where I set it (and yes I've tried the obvious windows tricks to prevent this). -Microphone DOESN'T detach from the headset on this model (thought it did). -The Dolby 7.1 sounds awful. Feels...

Good overall buy, would buy again even without the in-line volume control.

Great headset so far, it's very comfortable to wear. Extremely light weight. The self-adjusting head band is nice. I love the flip-up to mute mic feature. I like the overall design and Plantronics offers interchangeable custom headbands which is a nice...

Only con for me, and I can't believe I didn't see this before I bought it, there is no in-line volume control.
