The LS20 unites precisely tuned audio and advanced gaming controls with a fresh ID and solid build. Like our flagship LS40, the LS20 has on-ear controls for easy access to game volume, game mute, and mic mute. Unplug the boom mic and use the built-in mic and on-ear controls with your phone.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The problems started when I could not get the audio volume or audio mute to work, I was using it in PC mode (that's a RED LED). I had read the LS20 manual before buying and the quick-mute feature was a key selling point for me.
So I emailed LS Support reporting the issue. I received a quick response from a Support tech basically telling me to read the manual. I will assume the tech was referring to this section:
Note that the volume, Bass Boost, and mute buttons will not
function in passive mode, but the mobile phone control button on
the left earcup will still work.
I found Support response rather insulting, and completely not helpful. here's why...
LS says the LS20 has 3 modes, PC, XBOX, and PS4... when in fact it has FOUR modes... the forth being passive, which I am assuming to be the mode where the LED is off. You cannot be sure, since the "mode" list in the manual does not list "passive". It could be that passive mode was another name for PC mode, but if that's the case, then the manual is wrong because volume control DOES work in PC mode.
Getting the device into passive mode is tricky, you need to push the power quickly but not too quick. This isn't really mentioned in the manual either AND passive mode is the only way to save your battery. If you push Power too long it will switch modes. To little and it won't do anything.
The ACTUAL cause of my problem was that that one of the three clips that hold the plastic cap to the left ear piece was not snapped in place. The cause of this seems to be the o-ring was caught in the hole that the snap was supposed to sink into. After completely removing cap on the left ear piece, resetting the o-ring and snapping the cap back in place, the volume control now works. The audio mute still does not work in PC mode (red LED) but does work in PS4 mode (Blue LED).
1. I don't appreciate support assuming that I am not smart enough to read the TWO PAGE manual.
2. The manual is incorrect and/or ambiguous.
3. The actual volume control problem I had was POOR ASSEMBLY of the device
4. It seems that audio mute doesn't work in PC mode, but does in XBOX/PS4 mode, which is documented NO WHERE.
5. There is a (possible?) forth mode of the headset with the LED being off, which is tricky to make work.
For this price I cannot complain about anything at all. The build and features are worth more than the price tag. The build is mainly metal, with some plastic on the ear-cups, and they seem very sturdy and durable.
The sound is very crisp and clear. Very fun to listen to with great bass extension which doesn't distort and high volume. However these are not audiophile grade, but the sound signature is very enjoyable especially for the price. Obviously if you have better sounding headphones that are poratble you will enjoy the more expensive and better sounding ones more, but I'm justifying my review with what you get for $39.99.
The boom microphone is decent for the price, and it is detachable, so you can turn it into an on-ear headphone which doesn't look bad if you wear it outside. However they don't really isolate sound well, for example if you're commuting by train you might hear outside noise.
TL;DR Overall I don't regret 'stealing' this for $39.99 - anyone on a budget looking for a gaming headset will love these so if you're looking to spend no more than $40, I don't think (in my opinion) that these can be beaten. Portable size headphones you can use for music, with a detachable boom mic with clear sound with good bass, what more do you want?
Hope this helps.
My favorite thing about this headset is that the 3.5mm cable is not permanently attached to the headset. If it does break , as has been my biggest problem in the past, i can replace it. The cable being short is not a negative for me as I only use these for gaming.

Definitivamente me compré otros. Son muy buenos. Cómo dato, algunos dicen que el micrófono no funciona, pero por ejemplo, yo creí que funcionaba con la luz azul encendida pero tiene que estar apagada. Cuando el micrófono tiene la luz azul significa que está silenciado.
1: Cargar por completo los audífonos (3 horas de duración)
2: Conectar correctamente el jack 3.5 mm en ambos extremos (audífonos a consola, pc o dispositivo móvil)
3: Para hacer uso de los controles y del modo Bast Boost cambiar el modo según sea lo indicado por el led. Para encender los audífonos solo basta con presionarlo por 3 segundos y para apagarlos también; después cambiar el modo dejando presionado solo hasta que cambie de color el led. (Rojo PC y móviles, Azul PS4 y Morado Xbox One)
4: Disfrutar de las funciones que dispone según sea el gusto de cada usuario.
OJO: LOS AUDIFONOS SON EXCELLENTES INCLUSO EN SU MODALIDAD PASIVA (SIN BATERIA)
CONSEJO PROPIO: Ser paciente y conectar bien todo :D
