Great quality for the price, excellent headset.
on December 5, 2015
I ordered these for video games on my computer, and I've had a number of different headsets in the past. I've typically stuck to cheaper models from various brands just because I was a broke college student. I went with these because they looked nice and had reasonably high reviews. I was leery of the microphone having the retractable feature, I figured it would be easy to break. It's not, I've dropped them once or twice already and they seem to hold up fine. The wire that the headband uses to secure to the actual headset is a steel cable, the picture makes it relatively hard to tell so it's put together very well. The USB plugin is nice for my computer, as usb is not going to be going anywhere soon. When I purchased these I was only playing computer games at the time, but they are also great for listening to music or watching movies on my pc. They are a gaming headset after all, so expect them to meet that need perfectly. I'd recommend getting a hook from the hardware store, I got one of those 3M sticky "command hook" things which is nice to have on the wall next to my PC. I just hang them up when I'm not using them.
The only cons to these things are as follows: They are NOT ps4 compatible. This is stated in the product description, I bought them for PC gaming...but I have a ps4 now that I got for an early christmas gift and I cant use these with it, which is what it is but it'd be nice. Also, the software you use for setting the headset up is downloaded from the website. Which isn't a big deal in itself but the software is only usable on an operating system windows 7 or newer...I've got vista so I can't use it. Other than that, the headset is a great buy...I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase.
I play a lot of FPS games as well as league of legends and a few other steam games, this headset is perfect for FPS's. The mic is very clear, the people I play with immediately noticed the difference from my last headset (plantronics ~30$ model) and said I sound completely different. I'd highly recommend these if you're into PC games-especially first person shooters.
