Older user (60) and late night railroad/flight sim and music player. Wife was complaining about the sound of my sim and music at bedtime. Tried the old fashioned headphones that plug into sound board but they left me wanting. Hadn't tried (or heard of to be honest with you) USB headphones before. Came across these on Amazon. Read the reviews and a week later all I can say is wow! Everything is amazing. From Lone Star on Pandora, to an HD movie (Red Baron) on Netflix to Rise of Flight WWI aerial combat sim and Rail Simulator. Everything sounds totally awesome. Couldn't get the vibration to work at first until I played with the equalizer settings. Now works very well with a bit of bass. My all around favorite settings are: system input: 8ch, DSP mode: on, 7.1 virtual: on, shifter: full positive, analog output: 6 speakers, speaker environment : bass enhancement: general music, environment: living room. environment size: large, equalizer: bass. With my rail sim, the sound (and feel) of a heavy Union Pacific freight rolling by is pretty incredible.

Only gripe is the blue LEDs on the control pod are annoyingly too bright. And need to be covered when watching a movie or playing a game in the dark at night. Unlike some other reviewers, I feel that this nice headset may well be trouble free and very enjoyable indefinitely. Set up properly and treated with care there is no popping, hiss or wiring shorts what so ever with this quality headset. In fact it's dead quiet between sounds and music tracks. Luvin' it!

Does not work with USB 3.0. In a test will only play the first tone then stops and locks up computer. This is either the front ports or the rear. Plug it into USB 2.0 however and it works fine. So don't buy it, plug it into USB 3.0 and then claim it's defective. It's not.

I have currently owned these for less than a year. I will start by reviewing the product by bullet points:

+ Well rounded sound for ~$50
+ Software is decent

- Long term wearing is uncomfortable
- Microphone can be finicky, and sometimes actually picks up the sounds from the headset
- Driver software is not available online
- Vibration is more or less a gimmick. I enjoyed it at first, but you get use to it.
- Wear and tear close to a year has caused the left sound to become quieter. I have pinpointed the issue to the control box.

Concluding thoughts:
I have not owned to many headsets, but I would have paid more for a better quality. The sound is good and when the microphone was working, it was great. I will admit, I have had too many issues with the microphone and the headset's software. It was not extremely frustrating, but I wish I did not have to deal with it in the first place. The comfort of the headset is not good. After long periods of playtime, there would be pains on my ears. The vibration was nice, but it grew old quickly. In games it is nice to feel the bass. In retrospect, I would have just preferred quality sound. Do not make the vibration a selling point.

The controller box has been the source of my issues. The left part of the ear fades out more than it should. There seems to be some kind of connection issue. If I physically hit the box, the connection seems to come back. There are also time when it goes in and out because it dangles from where I wear it. The location on the wire is almost right, but sometimes it hangs off my desk too often.

Overall, I was content with the product for the first 2-3 months. As time went by, I noticed too many flaws, and since I spent $50, I continued to use it. Now that I am having issues with the sound, I have become a little disgruntled. So take this review with a grain of salt, I am currently unsatisfied while writing this review.

I cannot believe how good this headset is for the price I bought it for, I would easily expect to pay double, even triple the price for something like this.

The vibration is a nice touch as well, very cool when watching movies (Jurrasic Park is amazing at the T-rex part), anything with explosions and loud noises sounds cool and very good with the 5.1 surround sound. I don't think I could ever own a non-vibrating headset now

If i had to pick out one bad thing (which really isnt that bad) the direction the earcups swivel is the wrong way (i believe anyway) which means its difficult to wear only one earcup while they sit on your head

The microphone is detachable, which I believe is very good, because I hear of too many stories when the mic dies but the headphones still work, so if that ever happen, you can just replace the mic!

Also the software comes with a nice voice modifier, which can be funny to use when gaming

With all that said, this is the first headset I have purchased so I don't really have any comparison to go by, but none the less, I don't think you will be disappointed in buying these compared to a $200 headset

Pretty much, its meets all the expectations I had for it

The headset is generally sturdy and fairly comfortable. The earphones fit over my (jumbo) ears and block out quite a bit of sound.

The vibration feature is neat, but if you plan on doing much VOIP with these and care for your friends (or teammates) to hear you, you'll have to disable the vibration feature. When the feature is enabled, vibration bleeds through (vibrates the microphone) and renders your voice useless.

The outdated drivers included on the disc are the same outdated drivers available on Rosewill's website. The drivers for Win7 haven't been updated since 05/30/2012, and it definitely shows. The drivers are 32-bit only (will work on a 64-bit system), but are flaky at best. By clicking on the icon for the headset in the taskbar, typically, the driver actually crashes. This is a major problem. If you want to utilize the drivers to tweak your settings, you're going to have a bad time.

Overall, the headset isn't terrible, and would actually be a fairly versatile headset if the drivers were updated. Also, music listeners and gamers will come across issues with the vibration feature.
