This headset is great for gaming. In fps's like Team Fortress 2, Counter Strike Source, this headset let me hear the direction shots were being fired from with a lot more precision than my previous headset. I could also hear small details in the sounds that I couldn't hear before. The sound in the headset sounded odd at first, like they were quiet or like they were coming from behind me, but after a while they felt more realistic and accurate. I am guessing this is because I am used to wearing any old lousy headset.
The headset is also great for music. I noticed a huge improvement in the quality of the bass from my old headset(the headset I used before, a Logitech Extreme Gaming Headset had almost no bass). I'm not a huge music person, but I notice the little details a lot more easily than with my old headset
The microphone with this headset is pretty good. When voice-chatting on MSN/live messenger, the voice quality is better than when talking to someone with my phone. The in-line controls are in a good position and easy to reach while wearing the headset. The microphone-mute button works fine and the volume control has a good range.Read more ›
The ear muffs are comfortable for relatively extensive use. I've used them for about two hours straight without my ears or head starting to hurt or get sweaty. The muffs also muffle out a lot of the ambient noise- it's not noise canceling but it's easy to hear conversations even when the TV is playing in the other room.
The mic works well also- people don't hear me breathing but can still hear what I'm saying well. It doesn't get in the way although the connector to the removable mic does get loose about once a week- you just push it back in and it's fine. I have noticed that Skype thinks the volume of the mic is too low but people I'm talking to say it works just fine.
Now to some of the relatively minor downsides- the mic switch is hard to see if you wear glasses but don't have them on. The writing and icons are small and written in silver so you basically just have to memorize which way is which same with the volume control which is a small wheel in the same plastic bobble on the headset cord.
The cord is of good length and good quality- no intermittent breakups or breakages yet which is something I can't say about all headsets.
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.Read more ›
