I got my pair recently as an upgrade to the previous model by Koss(SB-40). This is a significant improvement for the microphone over the previous model, sound is roughly similar. I could not find a better headset for voice and sound. I tried blasting the headphones and recording via voice, it sounded as though there was no sound in the background. As for sound, sound quality is amazing for the price of the headset, their is almost a noise canceling effect on sound. Koss also has a lifetime warranty if anything happens to the set.

I play many online games and use voice programs like Skype and Ventrillo. I also have my entire music collection digitized on my computer and often use my headphones to listen to my music using Windows Media Player. I had been using flimsy Logitech headsets for years and had gotten used to duct taping them together when the cheap plastic broke and putting up with the discomfort that came from wearing them for extended periods of time. I finally got fed up and tried Koss on a friend's recommendation and have been extremely happy with this headset. This headset has great audio and is extremely comfortable even after wearing them for periods greater than an hour. The are well constructed and extremely easy to use. I highly recommend these for gamers, audiophiles or simply someone who wants a good prodcut at a fair price.

This is the headset I've been looking for. I work from home and frequently use VoIP clients such as Skype, Live Messenger, Tokbox, and ooVoo. I have bought and tried a ridiculous number of headsets over the last few years. I usually listen to music while I work, and all other headsets I have tried fall pitifully short in sound quality. So, I would end up using one headset for calls and then immediately switch to another pair of headphones for listening to music. I have a pair of Koss PortaPro headphones that sound great, so I decided to try the Koss SB-45. I am so glad I did. The headphones sound great, it's comfortable enough to wear all day, and the microphone picks up extremely well. I couldn't be happier.

I bought this for my boyfriend for his birthday... a few comments from him and me:

1) The noise canceling is fantastic. I can pretty much yell at him and he won't hear me. (This is also kinda hilarious when he's playing Left 4 Dead...I can tap him on the shoulder and he jumps about 3 feet)

2) The sound is excellent. I listened to it myself. A lot better than the $40 logitech pair I bought myself.

3) He's been wearing them about 2-4 hours a day since getting them...he complained the first day they felt a bit tight, but no comfort complaints since.

4) The mic sticks out pretty far from the face. He was worried about that at first, but everyone seems to hear him so no more concerns there.

5) They're huge. They don't look it in the picture but they're very large. Like the size of headphones you'd find at a gun range or for use on private aircraft. Not terribly heavy though, considering.

6) There isn't a volume adjust on the cord. This didn't occur to me, but it was pretty much the first thing he noticed out of the box.

All in all he seems happy...so I'm glad I chose these.

Update 3/11/2013 - they're still getting daily use by him for hours a day and still working as well as they did new. No durability issues to date, nor has he felt any need to replace/upgrade them.

Update: 11/19/2013 - they died this week. As with most complaints, it was the mic that went. Still, they have probably a few thousand hours of use on them and lasted over 2.5 years. For $30 I'm going to leave the 4 star rating alone and say that they were still money well spent, at least in our case.

I got this headset because it is big and comfortable even with a hat on and also picks up very little background noise

The Koss SB-45 Communication Stereophones are sold for a very modest price. The lightweight comfort matched by its "sturdy-enough-build" make these stereophones surprisingly delightful. Not to mention the sound is beyond clear for the price range, and the bass mysteriously clever.

Comfort: 5
Price: 5
Microphone sound 4.5
Speaker sound: 5

*edit*
Looking back on it, I must change the rating.
The tightness around the head was never alleviated but not for lack of trying.
I tried to stretch these out over several nights but it did not work.
Just be aware, I did not really hear about the issue I had and I bought i t from Amazon, so keep in mind you might be in the same boat as me when you receive it. I have a regular sided head and I am completely surprised not more people are griping about this. I had pain from using it for a couple hours.
Due to this reason, I deem this purchase a failure on my part, I have given it away.
Currently using steelseries 4h.
I cannot recommend a headset I cannot use. Please be wary, I wasnt informed of this when I made the purchase.
*/edit*

What you need to know before buying:
1. Initially tight around head. Some users may be used to this.
2. Mic is difficult to adjust freely, the mic extension is a flexible rubber however if you apply enough force, it'll start to stay, suggesting there is some kind of metal underneath the rubber. Basically, the mic does not want to stay when you try to adjust it. Using force works.

Versus Cyber Acoustics AC-201:

Sound Quality: SB45 = deep clear bass frequencies and wins

Durability: SB45. I hope so at least. I had a cyber acoustics break on me. I will comment again if it breaks on me.I have owned these for less than a week however I can tell that the build quality on the SB45 is higher, the cyber acoustics headset has a problem with loosening adjustments and I had 1 mic break on me.

Microphone sound: SB45.
