You can pay a lot of money for a headset and microphone, but this iMicro SP-IM942 proves you don't have to. I bought this item primarily for the microphone: I needed a good mic for the dictation program (speech to text) I use. This one is superb; it increased the accuracy of my dictation from 95% to 99% (over a much more expensive Microsoft microphone headset I had been using).

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the sound with the headphones is excellent too. It doesn't quite have the range of more expensive headphones, of course, but it does a solid job of delivering good sound quality for music and spoken word.

All in all, a great item, and if you can get it for $10-$12, it is a steal.

Pros: This is an inexpensive piece of electronic equipment that does the job. The sound quality and mic placement are great for gaming and internet phones. The price is very low, adding to the value. It has a volume control which helps when switching from one application to another, since sound levels can vary on the computer.

Cons: The foam over the mouthpiece comes off very easily (for cleaning, apparently.) I would prefer that it didn't fall off when I didn't intend that. However, I now hold it on whenever I shift the mic into place for talking. The manufacturer should try to make sure that it is more secure.

Update: I bought a second one of these and it doesn't seem to be holding up as well as the first one. The earpieces came off a couple of times (not too hard to snap back on, after making sure no wires were pinched.) However, I also hear a loud squeak of plastic in my right ear when I adjust the earphones on my head... somewhat jarring.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this product. I was a little concerned because I didn't pay much for it, but It works really well. I am pleased with it. I hope to get a lot of use out of it.

I bought these a few weeks ago because they were super inexpensive and I needed some. I was a little worried about the quality, etc because of the reviews.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that they are very sturdy. In fact, I have rolled over the freakishly long cord a few times with my office chair and they are still going strong.

Great audio, and a microphone sensitive enough for me to whisper into and it will pick up. (Try talking to someone while the rest of the house is asleep, this headset will allow you to).

If I could possibly come up with a complaint, it's that the cord is freakishly long. Granted, I've got these hooked up to a laptop, so this probably wouldn't be an issue with a desktop.

They are just made of plastic though, so if you go around beating them up, they will probably break. But if you are treating headsets roughly enough for them to break, you probably need to get these since they are so cheap.

I seriously have no complaints. I try not to rate 5 stars unless the item is amazing, and this one is. :)

This is a very good headset for the price. I got it dirt cheap and it works like a charm with my speech to text program in windows Vista. I was a little skeptical about some of the other reviews that said the product was cheaply made but it all depends on how you handle them and take care of them that counts. The sound quality from the headphones is okay and the microphone works well, only problem is it is not a noise cancelling microphone so you have to use it in a quiet environment. Overall I rate this product as very good quality for the price you actually pay for it. You will get good use from this product. I recommend this product for those who do not have a lot of money to spend on an expensive headset and want to use it for simple purposes like speech to text or just general listening.

I purchased two pairs of these headphones to evaluate them for my company. Out of the box, one of the headphone's speaker fell off of the ear piece (I posted a picture in the product images). I was able to reattach it and the headset was working fine afterward. When you hold iMicro SP-IM942 in your hand and give a little shake it sounds like they are about to fall apart. Since one fell apart in shipping I think it may not be far from the truth. They sound fine and the mic works. Nothing special. There is a volume control in line on the wire that is designed oddly. You turn the volume wheel down to turn the volume up and vice versa. Not very intuitive. Since I have to send the headphones out to many users details like that can be very annoying. I cannot say I recommend them.

It was a horrible experience to purchase this item. Pay for something and you receive the item has already broken inside the box. It is Very disappointing product and awful customer service. Even after I return the item, after one month haven't got my money back. Do not buy this item and seller is accountable for its service.

I got these for my classroom and they work great. The sound quality is surprisingly good for such an inexpensive product

I don't know why people gave such high reviews for this product.
I was expecting a lot more when I got the package but was disappointed. The package is like of those products you buy from the dollar store.
The earpieces are loose and make noise. The foam is hard, feels cheap. The overall quality of the product just looks cheap.
The only plus side about is could be the quality of the sound. I listened to a few flac files and the sound was decent. However, I am not expert and I don't own a good quality headphone, so I couldn't objectively compare.

Sent back to Amazon for a refund.

It's cheap and I knew what I was getting into, but I was at least hoping for a fully functional product.

The microphone receiver was not working properly.
