Mic and headphones have a weighty, good quality feel and it's sure as hell worth five stars.
I borrowed someone else's Blue Yeti for one of my webinars, and the sound quality is much better. But the Yeti has its own issues (picks up every hint of background noise AND it is fixed on a desk so you can't really move it around). For the price, this microphone is good.
The headphones are standard, mostly fine for recording needs/playback, simple stuff. As far as using it to enjoy gaming or streaming services, possibly even music, I'd say just stick with or purchase a good quality headset. Played a few games with this one and given there's no volume control attached, and that the headset itself is really just standard, the sound does get very loud and unfortunately muddled. Probably fine for podcasting though.
Given that it came with the mic, and for pretty cheap, I can't complain. Good package overall.
The headset is a cheap plastic joke. The look good and they provide sound--but when you put them on your head you can feel the $ 1.73 they spent manufacturing each pair. I wish I didn't get the headset for free with the mic--would have been better to just lower the price.
However it's all ruined by the flaw that nobody else has mentioned. When the mic goes into suspend while plugged into USB (aka when you turn off your computer or sleep your laptop) it will only record silence or super loud static until you physically power down the device by unplugging it. If you've got a powered USB hub you can save yourself a little effort by flicking the power switch on the hub but it's still a pain the ass. I've talked to Samson support and have received a second mic from amazon which does the exact same thing. Samson support is clueless and just looked for different ways to blame the problem on my hardware, even though I tested it on multiple computers. Not recommended for use with USB in a permanent setup.
