Update: Kingston replaced the mic for free under warranty. They sent it with 2 day shipping and didn't even require me to send the broken part back. This was an example of great customer service and I can say that I am now very pleased overall with this purchase.
I'll say the exterior of the wiring is great. It is braided and tougher than many wired headphones. However, I opened up the inside of the headphones - the side where the wire enters the ear muff - and I'm disappointed to report these have the oh-so-typical Chinese "use the thinnest possible wiring" philosophy. I don't know what gauge they are, but I'd guess 30 or 32. Calling it 28 gauge would be generous. If you know anything about electrical wiring, you know that is super thin. The soldering is not too bad, but it suffers from the problem created anytime you solder very thin wire: it's very easy for it to become dislodged and fall off. Though that was not the case with my headphones.
My headphones' failure is due to the thin wires themselves. When these thin wires get moved around day after day - even in a nice appearing, braided conduit - they are going to fail sooner or later. The solution Kingston should adopt is using thicker wires. It would cost them pennies more per headset. Perhaps $1 maximum from upgrading the conduit, etc. in addition to the wires themselves. That is one of the differences with "higher end" headphones (which this item is not).
The saving grace of this product, besides its performance, is the 2-year warranty from Kingston.
At first I really enjoyed these headphones after switching from my Beats Studio 1st gen headphones that I used because I needed a headset. My friends instantly noticed how much clearer my voice was and how much better I sounded. The headphones I believe are around the same sound quality, I don't notice too much of a difference.
I was very happy to have an inline mute and volume control since my old set did not and having a mute button is good to have when there's a lot of noise on my end.
The reason for the 3 star review is that the volume control knob is very sensitive and sometimes it's impossible to get it at max while keeping both sides of the headphones working. The right side will cut out completely if I even touch the knob and it's hard to find the spot to get them both back on at full.
Besides that I really enjoy the headphones and will struggle through it.
Would recommend but I hope this isn't a problem for everyone.
I don't know where I buy this, but I bought this on the assumption if my mic dies, i can replace it, and since i have this problem with headsets, this is why I went big on a top rated item.
All-in-all, with or without the warranty the headset itself is great, but I am finding it troubling in the senses to not be able to part it out and buy replacements. however, no big deal, awesome warranty.
For fan service, I have to say - The box it came in was the cherry on top of the experience I keep it and house items in it, currently as again i chalk this to fan service, it was truly wonderful to be shipped a box that had a solution in it, and provided me an actual awesome extra packaging box for like probably some sustained use of 1-3 years. So, Yeah, I know that's at length but truly impressive to buy something today and have it shipped and come in a container that was actually not something to dispose of.
The headset itself rocks some awesome quality in sound. My only gripe is with the speaker head comforters that while can go on easily, often fall off. I also would like to make a point I sleep in these, so my use of them are quite heavy. So it's been roughly 1-3 months, with no problems, typically I can kill a logitech headset in approximately four days with the same use. So this item is clearly winning out for me, the only other issue I've had was cable extension, I am using a logitech usb extension + a usb with mm audio jacks for sound/microphone. the cable that came with the device is great, but length is an issue if you are into actually using your headset and having some mobility, ie: reaching over here for this while you are gaming, etc.
So, in short, the product is fabulous, I still do wish I could purchase extra microphones before one ends up in a bowl of cereal or something, since I would equate this feature to a modern day tooth brush, I want to replace the brush, not the entire unit that scrubs my teeth with ultrasonic waves. So, in the line of thought, If applicable I would even like this unit to ship with spares. All that said, that's a high demand, but at the end of the day, if my microphone breaks sure I can wire up and jerry rig a microphone in there but.... defeatist, I suppose I should be more hopeful of my warranty but all-in-all even with a 5 day SLA, that's like 2 weeks, for something I could have replaced in 30seconds.
The quality of the chord is good, and with the logitech usb hub, my hub for the volume for this unit safely "Breaks off" in the event of any pulling, preventing a lot of strain on the unit itself, which is nice, as i have have had incidents in the past of the copper wiring requiring soldering in the middle of the unit for all sorts of various real world incidents.
All things considered, I would genuinely recommend if you buy this product to find the usb extension of your choice as the chord itself is maybe six feet on its own. And having the break off methodology of preventing an incident, is a life saver.
So Thank you hyper X, honestly, I couldn't be happier, also worthy of note is that the headset itself while on can prevent somewhere between 20-30decibels, I'd rate it for a vacuum cleaner, but only with higher than regular volume use. So, again, Very happy in more or less every way with this unit.
