The Cyber Acoustics AC-101 Monaural Headset & Boom Mic is the base model in their line-up, but has some representative features of low end headsets. While this unit isn't terrible, it's definitely a case of "you get what you pay for." You may want to look at some of their higher end models or check out the Creative HS-600 Headset with Noise Cancelling Microphone.

Pros
- Good Price for basic headset
- Earphone is decent quality for a basic headset
- "Voice Recognition" certified for those using that feature
- Microphone easily swivels for left or right ear use

Cons
- The monaural headset won't meet all your gaming and multimedia needs
- The list price of $20 may be correct, but these sell for $15 in my local brick and mortar. So you still get a better deal at Amazon, but you are saving about $1 or 7% as opposed to 28%.
- The microphone sensitivity seems somewhat low
- Durability is questionable; the wires and connectors are your basic cheap grade and won't last heavy abuse
- The head rest arm is somewhat sharp and could have used more padding; put it on with care

For my money, I prefer the Creative HS-600. They are more expensive at about $30 to $40, but they give you stereo headphones and more comfortable cushion ear-pads. The microphone also seems like an improvement over the Cyber Acoustics. If you don't want to pay that much you can always look into the

I use this with Dragon NaturallySpeaking, and it's proving much better than my last two (more expensive) headset microphones. Accuracy and noise cancellation is good. However, I literally just had it on for 5 minutes, and half an hour later, my head still hurts where the "non-ear-side" was. I have a small head like other reviewers, yet this was just awful! I'm definitely going to have to pad it myself. I'm going to try gluing some memory foam to the spot where it rests on my head. Wish me luck! The other side with the ear is comfortable, and it meets my needs functionally, so aside from that issue, it's a very good value.

Pros:
The Price
It Works
Picks up volume very well..

Cons:
Everything else.

I bought this as a replacement for a headset that broke.... I was in a bit of a pinch and saw this..read the reviews and thought it seemed pretty okay.. well.. enough as a temporary solution. I was excited when it arrived and tried it on instantly to communicate with a friend in Japan... but... the fit is uncomfortable... and the side with no ear covering hurts and presses against your face.... when I adjusted it, it seemed fine...however... to my horror... somehow the darn thing got tangled in my hair! As soon as I raised it off of my head, I felt pain from the tugging on my hair. Talk about rude awakening! ;___; I made several attempts to try it.. but even when my hair was braided or pulled into a tight ponytail..somehow it managed to still hook itself into hair causing pain.... I would advise anyone who buys this to think twice... the price is reasonable yes.. the sound quality is good and it does work... but if you are a creature of comfort like myself...after the fifth attempt... you will put away only for it to collect dust... sometimes you do get what you pay for. *sigh* I never like writing bad reviews..but.. I gotta tell the truth. Cheers.

I bought these with a pretty low expectation to begin with. I expected them to fail after a few months worth of use, but they looked nice so I went with them anyway.
The sound quality was fine, as was the microphone reception. I used it to speak to a friend for a while as we played games and we had no issues...then the mic broke.

As I said, I expected them to just last a few months in use, and they did...I just expected a few months worth of time for use, not a few days worth of time spread over a few months.

It is not meant to be a high tech, state of the art headset. It functions well for its price and has a long life. I haven't had any issues with it shorting out or anything that typical headsets of this value usually have so that's a plus in my book. Its got a puffy padded ear piece which I would rather not have, but that is a personal taste. All in all this is a decent headset for the price if you are in need of something quickly.

Shipping was very good, product was as described. Sound was OK, but the mike picked up every pin drop around the area where it was used. No noise suppression at all. Also, was not sturdy. The side piece broke off about 3 weeks after I started using it. The wire frayed rather quickly where it goes into the ear phone and within 6 months or so was not useable. I had to replace it, however, I did not pay much for it, either.

I had searched for a cheap USB headset and this one showed up in the results. The product description does NOT include the connector type (should have been my first clue). I just got this yesterday and it is a standard 3.5 mm jack. I needed a USB.
Quality wise it's OK for a cheap product but be aware that it is not USB in case that is what you are looking for.
