Please leave feedback, did I miss anything?
After using this headset there is so much feedback. Despite adjusting settings on programs like TeamSpeak, Skype, GoTo meeting, and the computer (as well as the headset's settings) there has been no improvement. Thinking it was a Mac compatibility issue I tried it out on a PC for a while as well as the PS3, it was even worse. When programs were running (especially video conversion programs on the PC) it is as if I could hear them running through the headset. Not only that but after ~90 minutes of continual use, no matter what platform I'm using it on my voice goes robotic I'm told. I have to unplug it and plug it back in for the robot voice to go away.
Since I was out of the return/exchange time frame from Amazon I contacted Tritton (MadCatz) support themselves. They determined that they would need to warranty the headset out. During the process I was told that I'd need to mail the headset (I would have to pay for the shipping to them, even though they determined it was a manufacturing error) and that they would evaluate the headset and either fix or replace it. The process would take up to 4 weeks. I bought this headset not only for use with a PS3 but as my day-to-day work headset. Not having one for up to 4 weeks forces me to purchase ANOTHER headset to use in the meantime. So, I bought a "faulty" headset, and responsible for paying the shipping back to the manufacturer, and am left without one for weeks.
I'm so disappointed in this product because it was the only one I could find that fit my ears comfortably (try finding a comfy headset that accommodates 7/8" stretched lobes!), the sound quality is not as described and support puts the responsibility of paying for shipping (estimated about ~$10 for just basic Priority USPS, even more for UPS or FedEx) on the customer when THEIR PRODUCT is faulty.
Needless to say I'm done with the Tritton (actually manufactured by MadCatz) products for poor handling of a warranty issue. All they had to do was send a UPS/FedEx label for return with the RM and replace the product and I would have been a happy customer. Instead they've lost one for life.
I filed to return it and the seller refunded my purchase without even asking for the headset back.
On a sidenote, these headphones ARE comfortable as other reviewers have stated, though not as comfortable as the "SteelSeries Siberia V2 Full-Size USB Gaming Headset" I ended up buying when these didn't work out. The Steelseries V2's are a bit more expensive, but worth the extra money.
I did test out the headset with the analog jacks (since the inline controller breaks away and you can plug them in with standard 3.5mm cables), and the mic/headphones are pretty decent. Can't say I've tested the headphones extensively for audio quality, but I did test-record the mic with a high quality portable audio recorder, and the audio that comes out of the mic itself (USB amplifier aside) is pretty good - on par with some more expensive cardioid stand-alone mic's I've bought.
Sometimes I see reviews that state the mic quality is bad for headsets, I would be cautious about believing them unless the reviewer has used a high quality recording device as I have - in many cases mic's work perfectly well and it's the recording equipment that sucks.
