It picks up background noises as well as my voice very well.
Amazon Customer
Doesn't feel too flimsy, It has good sound quality, and most importantly a great microphone.

Without a doubt, this is the best affordable headset that I have ever owned.

My previous headphones were an ultra-cheap set from the local generic box store. They started to irritate my ears after only a few minutes of use, so they had to go! I do a lot of gaming, and using Skype to call family members long-distance. I bought the CAD U2 headphones a year and a half ago, and still use them daily.

Pro:

*Sound quality. NOT 5.1 surround sound, but very good stereo sound. Crisp high, mid, and balanced bass. Plenty loud enough to cause hearing loss(it's Bob Cramer, from Artillery!), and as quiet as you like.
*Microphone. I've compared Skype voice test with these versus the cheap set I had previously, and there is a huge positive difference with the CAD U2's. One other reviewer mentions muffled sound, and I wonder if they had the foam on the end of the microphone backwards (opening in the foam should be facing your mouth).

Con:

*Ear Comfort. It took me a while to find a comfortable position to wear these. The ear pieces just barely cover my ears {which are small). They are not large enough to go around your ears.
*Head Comfort. There is no padding on the top of the headphone band. I have the headband size maxed out and position it somewhat forward so it lays as flat as possible.

Other:

*Noise blocking. While not noise-canceling, they diminish background noises enough to make it impossible to understand my wife speaking from 10 feet away. At least as far as she knows. :}
*USB connection. If you use a sound card, you will probably not be looking at these instead of surround-sound headphones. On the other hand, it's a good thing in case your headphone or microphone jack is already occupied or doesn't work.

Not the most comfortable headphones out there, and not surround sound. Good quality, durable, does the job. I can't justify spending 3 times the money for something else, and I would buy these again today.

Bought the CAD U2 USB Stereo Headphones with Mic for creating some tutorial videos for family and friends, and love them. For the price on these, they are great. Recorded voice sounds great, no hiss or ambient noise. Cord length is great, nice and long enough for me to be able to move around in my office chair without having to unplug them. Louder than my regular headphones. Headphones have good sound, nice bass reproduction. The only , ONLY complaint I have about these are the ear pads could be a little larger to fit on the ear a little better, but works nonetheless. The ear pad size was not enough for me to take away a star for the review as I have a big head anyway (LOL)! For $36, one of the best sets I have ever bought. Very light as well. I have started using these for my podcasts, and they sound great!

UPDATE: It is February 6th, 2012, and my headphones just suddenly quit working! I was in the middle of a song, heard some crackling, and then they died. I've spent 4 hours now trying multiple solutions to get them working again. They are simply kaput! Went on CAD Audio's website to check warranty info, and nothing but an email address for support. So, I'll get back with how this turns out.

It is now February 10th, and three emails to support at CAD Audio have gone unanswered. Just a stupid auto responder. Apparently CAD doesn't support their products. I know it's not Amazon's fault that CAD doesn't respond, but it sure makes me think twice before purchasing from Amazon, and their suppliers again.

Without a doubt, this is the best affordable headset that I have ever owned. I use this for recording podcasts, voice overs for presentations, and Webinars. It is comfortable and great at isolating me from environmental noise. Best of all, clients commend me for taking the time and effort to make a recording in a professional sound studio, even though I have recorded at my desk in my home office. Excellent for Skype as well.

I use headsets for typing with Dragon NaturallySpeaking and always have problems with recognition. I had assumed it was the software as I have gone through numerous headsets over the years and despite always ending up with a different brand or model the recognition works about the same. When my last set broke I was determined to focus on finding a quality mic. However, I found it near impossible to find any reviews that dealt with mic's or the use of a particular headset for dictation. I finally picked these because of one blog review that listed them as their top choice for dictation.

My initial impression - they look kinda cheep and the ear pads are very small and perfectly horizontal with no pivot or give (not angled like the natural angle of ears on a face) so they put uneven pressure and sit painfully on top of the ear (not around), making it hard to wear for more than a few minutes. Deal-breaker, or so I thought.

On using them once with Dragon, I changed my mind. I have since put in the time to modify the cups to fit around my ears and they are way better.

The point is, this mic works perfectly, Dragon almost never misses a beat and while the design and comfort are the pits, the product works better than anything else I have tried including much more expensive sets.

I purchased the CAD u2 headphones to record some webinars and audio recordings for a business that I run.

This is no run-of-the-mill recording that I am doing since I am selling what I create for large amounts of money and rely on these for all of my recording needs.

I was very impressed with the sound quality (although it does pick up ambient noise due to the sensitivity), and even the sound quality wasn't half bad.

You don't buy these for superior listening, but more so for recording Very good to high quality audio for podcasts, webinars, or other recordings.

For that purpose, these do the trick at a very reasonable cost, and I recommend them highly for that purpose.
