2.0 out of 5 stars There is better out there, August 26, 2011

This headset is very good for the value. When I first turned them on I was amazed, the sound was very clear. It adds a lot to the 3 dimensionality of games. Right to left is most notable. Up-down, and front-back, still have a little left to be desired. The controls are very easy, one for chat, one for game volumes, and a mute switch. The chat talk back feature could be a little louder but is most effective when you try maxing out he volume. You will have no problem with the other volumes. The volume controls do move a little easy if you're moving the cord around, a lock would be nice added feature to the headset. The mic is very sensitive to sound while the boom is very sturdy. You won't have an issue with it moving or breaking on you. The fact that they plug into a usb for power will help you keep your wireless controller up and running for longer. Only problem I could foresee there is if you're using up all the USB slots with wired controllers and a wireless adapter.

Overall this is a great headset for the price. Any idiosyncrasies you have you can find them with this headset and upgrade later on. If you're looking to get your first headset at a decent price I would recommend this pair.

UPDATE------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have owned this headset for a little under a year and there are now some major problems. The first issue is a whine that comes from the headset that others can hear but I can't, so they'll get pissed about it, this started about a month after I got the headset. The wiring inside the the left earpiece where the boom meets the earpiece is loose or something. It will randomly make very loud noises in my ear and over my mic, I am constantly apologizing for "that loud noise my mic made". It took about 6 months before this headset started doing this. The latest problem which just recently started is low sound from other players. Even with the mic volume set to max and the game volume turned to minimum I can barely hear other players talking to me. Now the only thing that is reliable on this headset is hearing the game. This product starts off strong but deteriorates rapidly.

Right now I am dropping this from a 5-star to a 2-star product and I would no longer recommend this product
