It has many potential problems but not awful
on October 30, 2013
It's a cheap microphone so it must have some problems right? Here is what you may not like about it:
-The headset speakers only play the voices of other players, not the sounds of the game. I don't really mind this personally but I can see how some people might.
-Compared to other headsets, the speakers are hot. The combination of the material and size of the speakers and the energy of the sound makes your ears get hot very fast which will melt any earwax and make you feel uncomfortable. Not a very severe problem but annoying.
-I was amazed at how sensitive this mic is. I was annoyed at first when my friends could easily pick up my TV, which of course is playing the noise of the game because the headset doesn't, but I turned it down a bit and it was fine...definitely not a good headset for multiplayer games where you need to hear whats happening, like a co-op story mode. It will also pick up your music and anything thats happening in the background. The plus side is obviously that you don't have to strain in the slightest for it to pick up your voice.
I just got it so I can't comment on how long it will last before breaking, but those are the downsides. The upside is that its cheap with a better quality mic and speakers than the default xbox 360 headset.
