Don't let your opponent sneak up behind you--get a competitive edge with Creative Labs' HS-800 Fatal1ty Professional Series Gaming Headset. Developed with input from world-famous gamer Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel, the HS-800 features high-quality drivers for dynamic in-game audio and a noise-cancelling microphone for crisp voice communications. And with an ergonomic, lightweight design, you'll stay comfortable and maintain your advantage throughout extended gaming sessions.
In the heat of battle, you need every advantage you can get. The HS-800 features two large 40-millimeter drivers powered by Neodymium magnets that capture every whizzing bullet and clanging sword in realistic detail. You'll be able to hunt down your enemies with ease thanks to the accurately rendered audio cues, while excellent bass response will let you hear the powerful immediacy of every explosion.
The HS-800 features a generous eight foot cable made from oxygen-free copper that provides a pure signal with outstanding clarity. The cable features a gold-plated 1/8-inch mini-jack for optimum compatibility.

Unless they are shipping different headsets built using different materials each time, then here is my complete review:
1. The ear cushions are soft and made of a velvety like material. I like cloth or velvet because its more comfortable than the leatherette material most headsets are made out of. One would think that it would breathe better than leatherette, but for some reason the earpieces do not breathe very well and they can feel very warm/stagnant after a few hours. It's odd that with the velvette material and the fact that background noise easily invades, that the headsets have this kind of feel. You would assume that the ability to hear background sound, etc would mean lots of breathability (air flow) but it doesn't feel like it.
2. The ear cushions surround your ears, they do not press on the ears directly. The ear cushions are not oversized, and the picture shown here make it look like a typical headset, but they are in fact around-the-ear headsets.
3. The sound is excellent, bass is deep and partly because of the ear-encompassing design, the sound feels more nature and three dimensional.
I'm a relatively large person at 6'3" and assuming my head is not too small, I can assure you that the headset fits all sizes. I did flex the headset to reduce the compression on the ears slightly. Gently flexing the headset worked fine to relieve some of the compression. They are not initially tight, but I like headsets to be loose. Both the top arch and ear pieces have ample cushion, they are very soft. The ear pieces also designed to pivot front or back independent from the headset frame. This can help the headset conform for better comfort and is a nice touch.
Background sound invaded the headsets... I can hear fans and noises outside the room with the headsets on and playing a game. You would think that because the earpieces feel a little stifled, that they would block out more sound than they do. For whatever reason, the ear pieces are cushy and comfortable, less breathable, but do not block out much ambient sound. Please note that they do feel much more breathable than other leatherette headsets I have used, I am simply mentioning the 'warmth' because it is noticable.
The headset is light. The detachable mic is nice, since I do not use it very much. The cord is thin and light, and has a mic on/off switch with a volume adjustment built in. The length of the cord is better than another cheap so called "gaming" headset (plantronics).
Overall it is a great headset, sound and comfort are wonderful. I would recommend them for anyone, except people who need a noise-cancelling headset, since this headset does not really block out ambient sound.
Audio - no complaints here 40mm drivers seem to be sufficient for some bass and loudness, personally i've always been happy with them. I'm not really an audio snob and dont have a lot of other similar systems to compare so i cant get too deep into this. In short I'm happy and i think most people would at least be content
Mic - quality seems to be fine, by that i mean people have no trouble understanding and hearing me (i tend to speak softly). Easily comparable to the way you sound a little different over the phone. The mic is detachable which could be a plus, for me i only ever took it out for transport. The mic is visible in your peripherals but i've either grown used to it or never found it a distraction.
Durability - I broke my first one when the cord got snagged under my chair, i was able to repair it easily but ultimately got a second one, beyond that i've never had any issues with the headset. but be careful the wires are quite thin and a bad tug or two could damage or break them. it seems to be most vulnerable about 3 in from the connection to the pc. While I dont baby them i also don't throw them around.. at least not too much
Materials - im fond of the cloth type pads, but they don't breathe as much as you would think and they tend to get some lint/hair/stuff in them.
I wear glasses while i play and some materials can press the temples of the frame into your head and be a little uncomfortable, at times I've worn this headset longer than i care to admit and I've had almost no problems with this. The majority of the build is plastic and you can at times hear it if you move around frequently. With other sounds and things going on I tend to forget this even happens.
