I paired this with a Status Audio CB-1 set of headphones for a setup that kills my aging, ghetto and broken Astro A40s. There's no going back! From day 1 I got bad audio reports in the Astro A40s mic, not with this bad boy. Loud and clear. I don't know how well it will hold up as I've only had it a short while, but I'll update if any major issues. Really glad people can finally hear me!
My only gripe would be that it seems like the little control box integrated to the wire is on backwards? The clip faces out when I have this connected to my headphones instead of towards my chest. The cable is really too stiff to flip it around and expect it to stay. Seems odd, and it makes the clip useless to me so that's why I docked a star.
Anyways, if you need a gaming headset, pair this mic with a pair of good headphones and stop buying all of those light-up and cheeky childish "gaming headsets" put out by the gaming peripheral companies that seem to know nothing about quality audio.
PS: I added a little mic pop filter to the end and you can see it covering the tip of the boom in the pic so that's why it looks different than the stock photos. These don't come with one and I don't know how necessary is, but mine sounds great with it!
The cable is like a piece of string, meaning it's got almost zero wire feeling to it, meaning it's super flexible making it a joy to wrap up when not using it. The connectors are all gold plated and the sound quality is amazing. I have been polling people for a day asking if they notice any difference in my mic quality and all of them either said there was no difference or it was better. I'm happy with the no difference because I bought the V-MODA M-100 headset for the sound quality but was worried that the additional mic boom would be sub-standard in my voice chat programs. Again, coming from a $300 Astro A50, I didn't want my sound quality to go backward, and it did not. In the cases where it sounded better I can attribute that to the fact that you can get this mic much closer to your mouth than with the Astro A50 meaning there is a more intimate feeling to your voice with the mic closer.
If you have a V-MODA or compatible headset and you're wondering if this mic will work, just go ahead and click on buy because you won't be disappointed.
First and foremost, this item (BoomPro) is a 3.5mm jack, and the M50x is a 2.5mm jack. so the jack won't even fit into the audio technica headphones. you will need to go to your local radio shack to find a 3.5mm fem to 2.5mm male adapter. as shown in my picture, you specifically need to get the BARREL fitment because the hole in the audio technicas where you would plug into the headset is a bit deep. another crucial and very important step that needs to be taken is the removal process of the locking mechanism that the m50x has. as all owners should know, the headphones allow you to remove the cable, but it comes with a special cable(s) where it makes you to twist and lock the cable so its snug and won't yank out. it is very simple, and if you type in the YouTube search " audio technica athm50x removing lock mechanism" someone posted a very easy tutorial on how to remove it so any 2.5mm jack can work with the headset. its as easy as removing 8 screws total, removal of the locking mechanism, then screws back on.
I played Call of Duty with my friends, and on there end they said they can hear me loud and clear. I've had no issues thus far at the time of the review, and I can happily say the audio technicas sound great as a gaming headset for both audio and mic.
as a disclosure, i use this gaming headset for my xbox one. you need to buy the audio adapter for this to work properly. the adapter allows you to control the gaming volume and chat volume separately. i had issues where when i tried to turn up the chat volume, the gaming volume would simultaneously turn up as well.. which was extremely annoying because if both were on full blast, it was hard to hear the chat over all the gun fire playing call of duty. so because of personal preference, i wanted chat volume at max while having the gaming volume from low-mid volume. i was able to fix this issue by replacing the xbox one audio adapter. so if anyone else runs into this problem, its not the BoomPro, it will most likely be a faulty xbox one adapter
