Sennheiser PC 166 USB Headset

 

The best gaming headset ever

The headset provides great sound quality with quick response which is ideal for gaming. The microphone is enabled with sound-canceling features, which ensures that environmental noise is not delivered to whoever the user is contacting. The USB adapter...

The volume is a bit low for some types of audio such as music, which is a problem that cannot be fixed

Sennheiser PC166 USB Headset

 

Developed by Esports gamers themselves no less…

Great design, features and performance make the PC166 USB Headset an obvious choice for the discerning gamer that requires the very best. Depending on price they're great value too, though availability is sketchy at best as is pricing which varies...

Very good Headset

 

only thing would be preference if u like isolation and earcups....well these are on-ear headphones so just remember that altho they are the most comfortable on-ear-headphones i have ever worn

Very Comfortable and light on the head and ears ; They are tough....even after i dropped a 80lb marble statue on them...they still worked even tho some of the plastic broke....they kept on working taped together for about 4 years lol ; Surprisingly...

i dont have a lifetime supply of them....which would probably only require like 3 pairs in this case lol

Not worth the price

 

Brand name

Uncomfortable to wear, but I didn't wear it for long so maybe it will break in. I immediately noticed the sound quality is not as good as my Plantronics DSP-500, both from the headset and microphone. If you have never had a really good sounding...

Looks good

 

This is an upscale product. It is not budget priced, but is worth the cost if you are a serious gamer.

Very good sound quality, good durability. plenty of cord length. Good comfort level for long term use

A little loose fitting, but acceptable. The mic boom will slip down occasionally

Personal opinion

 

Nothing

Sound from the headphone is great ; Microphone is clear ; Great for gaming ; Long enough cord for moving around etc

Couldn't find any

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Almost too amazing

 

Look if you want the perfect headphones you'll need to jump up a few price points. At their current tier of 100 - 150 I challenge you to find a better set of headphones. The sound is great, the built in sound card for 3d sound is great. The option of...

Wonderful set of headphones giving phenomenal sound. Just what you would expect from sennheiser

This may be nit picking but comfort is a con. The ear pieces are not large enough to cover the ear so they create some discomfort after several hours of use

Crisp, clear sound!

 

These seem overpriced for what you get. I suggest having a good sound card to really take advantage of these. Overall a really great set but should be cheaper.

I bought these at an offline store because I am some what picky of my headsets and would like to return them hassle free if they did not meet my expectations. First thing I did was pop it into the Aux port to find out the sound was bad (I use onboard...

Bass lacks. I like deep bass for certain applications. No detachable mic is a minus because I would love to use these for music at school without looking like some kind of dork. No light for mic to indicate if it's on or off but it's really no big deal...

SENNHEISER PC166 USB 3.5mm/ USB Circumaural Headset

 

The USB adapter/sound card quit working after about 10 months, but I think that may have been a problem on my end as I've had trouble with my USB ports lately. The headset still works great with the 3.5mm plugs though, so it's not a huge problem.

This headset has by far the best sound quality of any of the ones I have used. The USB adapter was great while it worked (see other thoughts). The cord hasn't pulled out of any of the connections (i.e. where it attaches to the headset), which has been...

The cable is a little too long and sometimes get stuck in the wheels of my computer chair, I should have kept the thing it was wrapped around. Also, either the headset has stretched or my head has shrunk, because now, when I bend over to pick something...
