Top customer reviews
I've been very impressed by their sound quality. They're no match for a $200 pair of headphones, but the quality is very good for their price.
Since they were made back in the Vista days, they seem to have a few small issues with Windows 7+. Even if you turn the volume down the zero, you can still hear the audio. Additionally, if you unplug and replug them in quickly, the audio will sometimes be louder than it's supposed to be. Restarting the computer usually fixes the latter issue.
The mute button on the wire is very handy. If somebody walks into my room, I can mute myself instantly so that my Skype friends don't hear our conversation. The downside of the mute button is that it's a bit too easy to press, so when the wire swings and the button hits my chair, it will sometimes mute the mic by accident.
The best thing about them is how they feel. They're incredibly comfortable and you can adjust the length of them to make them looser or tighter.
Despite the flaws that I listed, I love this headset because its comfort, quality, and price point are a winning combination. My current pair has lasted for 3 years, so as long as you take care of them, you shouldn't have too many problems there.
Just recently the material around the ears is deteriorating... not sure if I will order again.
It seems there is a short in the wiring somewhere and sound is being cut out intermittently. Sucks! They were good while they lasted I suppose.
First off, this unit is much smaller than previous units. I can fit the entire headset comfortably inside the old headset without bending the latter.
The ear muffs are also much smaller than previous versions, they are uncomfortably tight around my ears.
The sound quality is now terrible. Constant hissing and popping and crackling on both sides. Really sub-par.
I haven't tried the microphone, but in previous iterations it used to be quite good. Will update when I've had a chance to test that.
This product gets two stars because it isn't actually unusable, but because it is such a remarkable step backwards. I would advise anybody reading this to avoid this headset in the future. It used to be quite good for the price point, but the standards have fallen so far it's no longer worth a recommendation.
Pretty good. Obviously much better than my ear buds. I didn't look close enough to see it was a USB headset, but I guess even good mics are USB. So I compromised.
I don't have a lot of experience with good headsets, but my reaction is that the bass is little heavy with the treble being a little weaker (in comparison). But really, I'm not so bothered.
One con I didn't think of: the headset will dig into your head after some time and leave a temporary little notch (as you can imagine by the space in the picture). This can be fixed with a knitted headphone scrunchy that is sold various places.
But, the mic quality is fine, but better than what I have used so far (mostly crap), and people say it sounds much better. It extends far enough where you can get it out of your breath stream, and of course goes in both directions if you wanted to reverse the audio channels or something.
