1. High amounts of headset-to-microphone crosstalk (i.e. the microphone picks up what you're hearing). This has nothing to do with the audio that's coming out of the cans themselves but more to do with bad shielding and wire segregation. How much the microphone picked up depended entirely on the volume level. The only workaround I found was to set the volume level *extremely* low, almost to the point of sound being almost inaudible. Use of the mic mute slider had no bearing on the situation -- meaning, even with the mic muted, the wiring still picks up audio being played. I did several recordings in Audacity and the levels are extremely high, i.e. teammates in-game or on TeamSpeak, Discord, etc. will certainly be able to hear themselves (almost a form of loopback).
2. In-line volume control was awful. When adjusting the volume knob, I would hear volume variations between left and right, sometimes as much as roughly 60% variation (usually right would be louder than left). A slight tap or wiggle of the volume knob would sometimes rectify the problem, but more often than not I had to adjust the knob even more to try and find proper balance. This is usually caused by use of a cheap potentiometre. Considering the build quality of the rest of the headset, I'm thinking AT added this (and the mic-mute) at the last minute.
3. Audio quality was extremely "flat". Whatever drivers these are feel like they're designed solely to pick up treble and upper mid-range. Bass felt virtually non-existent (I'm not a "bass person", just for the record). The best way I can describe the audio quality is: slightly better than a generic set of US$10 laptop headphones. Use of a software EQ was able to balance out the ranges a little more, but then things sounded unequal (as in bass was trying to fight with mid-range, eventually sounding over-compressed). In other words, you can't overcome the shortcomings with a software EQ. This surprised me because I've come to expect good quality audio from AT.
4. Faux-leather pads resulted in my ears sweating after 3-4 minutes of wear. As someone who wore Sony MDR-7506s for hours on end until they literally fell apart, without sweating, I'm really not sure what to thinks. This negative is not reflected in the rating I gave these on Amazon; it may just be my skin having a strange sensitivity to whatever the fabric is made from, but I wanted to note it here anyway.
1. Headset is lightweight and doesn't have a lot of horizontal tension (i.e. pressure against your head). Other reviewers on Amazon as well as on YouTube are describe these as extremely comfortable and I agree. For those who have larger heads (I have an average-sized head), this will certainly be a good selling point. The headband is also quite comfortable.
2. Headset adjustment was excellent; metal is used to connect the headband to the cans themselves, not flimsy plastic.
3. Microphone is flexible yet stays where you put it. This is because the microphone is surrounded by low-grade FMC (flexible metal conduit). This is in contrast to other headset mics out there (I'm looking at you, SteelSeries).
Readers can draw their own conclusions from the negatives and positives.
however, my item seems to be broken as it has zero (none, nada, 0) bass at all. asbolutely disappointing as this is nowhere near "premium" in terms of sound quality. the rest is remarkably well crafted, but audio quality is just not good enough (cant even watch a youtube video without this getting on your nerves)
Overall, these are an amazing choice for headphones. I bought them on sale for $100, and they offer much for value than other gaming headphones from turtle beach or any other gaming only brand.
