I play lots of video games on my PC and they've been a lot more enjoyable since getting this headset. The first thing I noticed when I put these on was that they were extremely cushiony on my head. This is both a good and bad thing because it makes them very comfortable, but they blocked out so much noise that I had a hard time hearing even my doorbell or phone ringing. The headset is a bit tight on my head, but I think that'll wear off as I wear it more. The earcups actually swivel a bit in place which makes them more comfortable for people that don't have perfectly symmetrical heads such as myself.

This headset is great for gaming. In fps's like Team Fortress 2, Counter Strike Source, this headset let me hear the direction shots were being fired from with a lot more precision than my previous headset. I could also hear small details in the sounds that I couldn't hear before. The sound in the headset sounded odd at first, like they were quiet or like they were coming from behind me, but after a while they felt more realistic and accurate. I am guessing this is because I am used to wearing any old lousy headset.

The headset is also great for music. I noticed a huge improvement in the quality of the bass from my old headset(the headset I used before, a Logitech Extreme Gaming Headset had almost no bass). I'm not a huge music person, but I notice the little details a lot more easily than with my old headset

The microphone with this headset is pretty good. When voice-chatting on MSN/live messenger, the voice quality is better than when talking to someone with my phone. The in-line controls are in a good position and easy to reach while wearing the headset. The microphone-mute button works fine and the volume control has a good range.

I'm not sure why but mic/headphones don't seem to be easy to make- they tend to be expensive or lousy or both. This one is the first pair I've bought that I've been happy with.

The ear muffs are comfortable for relatively extensive use. I've used them for about two hours straight without my ears or head starting to hurt or get sweaty. The muffs also muffle out a lot of the ambient noise- it's not noise canceling but it's easy to hear conversations even when the TV is playing in the other room.

The mic works well also- people don't hear me breathing but can still hear what I'm saying well. It doesn't get in the way although the connector to the removable mic does get loose about once a week- you just push it back in and it's fine. I have noticed that Skype thinks the volume of the mic is too low but people I'm talking to say it works just fine.

Now to some of the relatively minor downsides- the mic switch is hard to see if you wear glasses but don't have them on. The writing and icons are small and written in silver so you basically just have to memorize which way is which same with the volume control which is a small wheel in the same plastic bobble on the headset cord.

The cord is of good length and good quality- no intermittent breakups or breakages yet which is something I can't say about all headsets.

When I first got this headset, the microphone was broken. I contacted Creative's customer service and I received unsatisfying service, so I returned it to Amazon for a replacement. As usual, Amazon responded immediately and the next day a new one was on the way, and their customer service people are really nice, too. The replacement I received works perfectly and I couldn't be happier. I think the problem with the old one was that the on/off switch was broken, so I couldn't turn the mic on. The sound quality is stunning, and the mic quality is on par with it, although it's a bit sensitive. I agree with the other reviewers, you really can hear things in the music that you never noticed before. The only questionable thing is build quality. It feels a little flimsy, as if it might break if you handle it too roughly. But don't let that stop you from buying it. For $35, it's definitely worth it. It's pretty comfortable but after a wearing it for a few hours, the cushions irritate my ears a little bit. If you have any problems like I did, you can return it to Amazon, and Creative has a 1-year warranty, so I would definitely recommend this headset. 4 1/2 out of 5 for the product, and 5 out of 5 for Amazon's return policy and customer service.

I read several reviews that conflicted.. One review said the headset was tight, another said it was cushy. Another review would say it blocked out ambient sound, while another said it was not noise-cancelling and allowed in too much ambient sound.

Unless they are shipping different headsets built using different materials each time, then here is my complete review:

1. The ear cushions are soft and made of a velvety like material. I like cloth or velvet because its more comfortable than the leatherette material most headsets are made out of. One would think that it would breathe better than leatherette, but for some reason the earpieces do not breathe very well and they can feel very warm/stagnant after a few hours. It's odd that with the velvette material and the fact that background noise easily invades, that the headsets have this kind of feel. You would assume that the ability to hear background sound, etc would mean lots of breathability (air flow) but it doesn't feel like it.
2. The ear cushions surround your ears, they do not press on the ears directly. The ear cushions are not oversized, and the picture shown here make it look like a typical headset, but they are in fact around-the-ear headsets.
3. The sound is excellent, bass is deep and partly because of the ear-encompassing design, the sound feels more nature and three dimensional.

I'm a relatively large person at 6'3" and assuming my head is not too small, I can assure you that the headset fits all sizes. I did flex the headset to reduce the compression on the ears slightly. Gently flexing the headset worked fine to relieve some of the compression. They are not initially tight, but I like headsets to be loose. Both the top arch and ear pieces have ample cushion, they are very soft.
