Color: Black
Here are some specs/thoughts that I think most people would want to know.

Cable Length: ~5 feet
Headset is not noise canceling
They sits ON your ears, not around
Single sided cable with a mute and volume adjuster on the cable.
Sounds slightly bassy, but no where near skullcandy or bass canons like that.
Microphone works perfectly.
Headset is extremely tight. If this is a concern you can stretch it out for a day and you should be good.
The headset is light (4.7oz), yet for me feels pretty well built for being plastic. Should never break if you take care of it.
The headphone and microphone plug are color coded on the metal part of the plug. Pink for microphone and black for the headphone. Here is a picture showing you this [...]

Now to address some of the reviews. For a headset to lose audio the solder joints have to fail. The only way a solder joint will fail is if the headset gets thrown around. I've owned $2 to $400 headphone/headsets and the only way I've lost audio was when 2 pairs of earbuds went into the washer machine. For people who complained about skype, skype will randomly change the audio source making a headset not work. If you go into settings and change it back to the right audio source it should work again.

The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star was due to personal preferences. I personally wanted a 10 foot cable and I wanted a dual sided cable.

This headset was the right price for what I needed for PC gaming/talking on aim/Skype. I wanted a quality headset microphone that would make me clear to hear to people.

The mic quality is GREAT, and so is the sound quality of the headphones. The sounds are all clear and I had no hissing or anything. The headset feels very sturdy and of quality construction, especially the fabric-covered padding. I love how the headset folds up and away if needed. You can bend the sticking-out mic part forward/back towards your mouth, and then the joint at the head does up/down, so it's a lot more precise than the loosey-goosey free wire-bending boom mics. It basically gives me the steady-placement FEEL of a hard plastic fixed position mic...only this one IS adjustable.

My only complaint is the headband was TOO TIGHT - it pinches my earlobe tops against the padding to my head. I've been leaving it on a box to stretch out the plastic of the headband. My head is small by human standards and my ears are not large either - so I don't know how other people feel about the tightness.

For wearing with extended times of playing online was not comfortable unless stretched out (after being "de-tightened" by being left on a box to stretch it, it is good though).

Also the plugs on the headset that plug into the back of the computer (this is an analog headset which is good cause I have many USB devices and I need those ports open) are not color coded - they are both black and look the same (they have tiny engraved symbols for 'line out' and 'mic' on them). One being RED would have been nice so it's easy to see which is which - cause not everyone can easily see/get to the back of their computer. Mine is a large desktop tucked aganist a balcony edge....

Size: AC 30Color: Black and Brown Verified Purchase
The Good : These headphones have a good sound, well for headphones I guess you could even say great. i have not owned an AC30 Vox amp so can't compare to the real thing.
They are also comfortable on your head & especially so on your ears - the padding is very good.
Thats about it for the Good !

The Bad : The cable that connects these headphones to your guitar is way too short, it fits but it could have been another 2 feet long to make it more comfortable.
The control dials located on the left earphone piece are recessed and impossible to access while wearing them on your head. You have to take them off to alter then - So Make Sure you're Wearing a Strap if You're playing Sitting Down ! - also the cable ( again ) is connected to the left headphone piece, this means the cable has to go behind you or between you and your guitar.
If running it behind you its not comfortable - its too short - if running between you an guitar then it will pull on your headphones as it gets 'caught' as you lean forward then back.
It seems that the technicians that develop things , like headphone amplifiers , arern't guitar players themselves because for a right handed guitar player the cable should connect to the right side of the headphone piece. This wouls give an unhindered line from the guitar jack to the headphone ...but obviously thats too simple for the technicians at Vox. (btw it's ok for lefties as it is)
Overall I said it was okay, just ! For the price its not worth it at all though the Vox Amplug ( which I also have ) is a far better choice, you can use your own digital headphones which are probably heaps longer then the Vox AC30 AGH.
So save your money.
My advice to Vox ... find some technicians that actually play the guitar !

I went looking for a headset after my last ones mic went. I purchased these because I wanted a bigger speaker and something that wasnt directly pressing on my ear all the time. I didnt think that it was the same manufacturer as the last set.

I can play for HOURS without any real discomfort. My ears get warm but thats fine.

Sound quality
Is pretty good. I was surprised they sounded so good. The mic sounds fine too, never had any complaints about how I sounded. The boom is flexible and you can put it right where you want it and it rotates to slide up and out of the way.

They look alright until you put them on. The top hoop goes way out to the sides. Then again who cares what they look like? Just letting buyers know you will look silly

The boom movement feature and inline mute and volume controls are nice, but after only 2 months the left speaker gave a gasp (crackle) and ceased working. It was annoying but I dealt with it for a day then the right one got VERY soft. I cranked up onboard volume, pc volume, and game volume and could barely make out the sounds. Then the next day it went altogether. I made do by wearing this set around my neck and positioning the mic near my mouth and the old set of Plantronics on my head with the mic out of the way so I could talk and hear until the session was over. Now I get to go look for another headset.

Be warned buyers. I might have thought Id gotten a lemon, its possible with anything you buy, but for two headsets dying within 6 months. You get what you pay for/
