Definitely a good buy.

Sounds is crisp and clear, the ear cups fit nice and tight on your ears. The cushioning is perfect.

I hardly heard any noise other than the music coming from my headset, it was almost like I was in the game.

If you are looking for an affordable and quality gaming headset, GET THIS.

Style Name: HS-G550 Verified Purchase
I read about these headphones in popular science and was skeptical of the low price compared to turtle beach or razer but decided to purchase them anyway. Overall this is a great gaming headset if it works. For the first two months I owned them they were perfect. Nice volume adjust on both ear cups, very comfortable, good sound and nice mic. However after about two and a half months the left earpiece stopped producing sound. Every now and then it will work again but overall it's broken. I was sad to find no information on how to fix this problem or the cause behind it. Of course the return policy had long passed and now I am stuck with only a half functional set of headphones.

Now, there are a few things you need to know about this headset. First, the microphone, isn't plastic, it's rubber so it does have some flex to it. That being said I still keep it down at all times because it you put it up and fold the ear piece in it catches and puts pressure on it. Second, it fits very snug. If you don't like you headsets to fit tightly around your ears, this probably isn't for you. It does fold up for easy carry, and the swivel design of the headset is way rad.

All in all, the volume controls on each ear are nice and I personally find this headset to be a sweet deal for the price. I use mine pretty regularly and for hours at a time. It's seen everything from a marathon of movies to 8+ hours of paragon farming in Diablo III and it hasn't missed a beat or disappointed me yet.

Pros:
Sound quality is very good. I can hear all the sounds in the games I play and the music I listen to.
Construction feels solid and feels like it will last.
Ear-cups are comfortable and provide excellent noise cancelling. I can't hear anything outside of my headset unless it's very loud.
Padded ear-cups are very comfortable.

At 6'7'' I may have a larger than normal head. The only con for me is that the headset is a little small.

Cons:

Headset is a little small for my head. To have the ear-cups around my ears I have to extend the headset as large as it will go and then pull it down so the top part is pushing against my head. After a couple hours it is a little uncomfortable. I think with some extra padding it would be perfect.

So I only just received this headset, but there are a few things I can say about it already.
Pros: Very sturdy, GREAT sound quality, no drivers to install, decent length cable/s, great volume controls.
Cons: Heavy(To me atleast, it's heavier than most headsets), Tight(For the time being. Headsets sometimes start out tight and become easier and more adjustable which this one is already becoming).

This headset is definitely worth the money.

Got the head set on 5.Sept 2013 and now the right ear piece stopped working. The sound quality was great and so was the mic. It is aggravating that just after 1 1/2 month I have no warranty anymore, and I am stuck with a bad head set. Very disappointing.

Update 11 Nov.2013: Contacted the company, and they replace the head set. I had send them an email with invoice of the head set. They send me an RMA number in order to send back the bad one. Tomorrow I should get the replacement. I am very impressed with the customer service. Awesome! Had to give five stars now.

Been using my pair with my PC and PS4 for over 24 hours of use now so I can give a fair opinion of what I really think of these.

Pros: First off, the sound quality is unmatched by any other headset at this price. This has the same sound quality as my old $70 pair of razer's. I haven't gotten anything but good feedback from friends about the microphone quality and volume, and sounds better than the razer microphone. The leather like cushions block out a good deal of sound and keep a lot of sound from bleeding out for others to hear. The mute mic function is very useful if you need something like that.

Cons: The headset is wired, so you will need something like an astro mixamp to hook it up to the xbox one or PS4 like how I have it. The headband has zero padding and starts irritating the top of my head after an hour. The padding in the ear cushions feels like the cheap firm kind that you find on a $5 pair of headphones, and I almost feel like ripping them off and putting my own on there. If you have a wide head, that will be a problem because the headband does not extend that far and feels like it will break if you put to much strain.

Final Thoughts: If you just need a headset with the best performance in terms of audio/mic quality, then this is it. If you want something more comfortable or say something more sturdy, then you will have to pay premium. I'm happy with these, but will be buying 3rd party ear pads to put on because I game at least 3 hours at a time.
