The mic is decent, and my friends have said that they can hear me loud & clear. It is adjustable to where you can wear it on your right or left side. The only downside is that it doesn't rotate fully 360 degrees, it only rotates a little over 90 degrees to either side. For me, this is a bit of a problem since I'm used to having the mic a little under my mouth. Also, it's not that long & it barely reaches the side of my mouth. At first, I had to kind of adjust the mic or just talk louder since it wasn't always picking up my voice because it's not all that adjustable and it doesn't reach all the way to my mouth. However, after a while, I got more used to it and I don't really have to pull the mic closer to me anymore. A really good thing so far is that this headset hasn't made any "buzzing" sounds that my friends hear. As opposed to previous headsets where they would often make a buzzing sound and my voice would cut off for my friends, this headset has no problems.
The headband is adjustable to comfort smaller or bigger sized heads. The cord is decently long and has quite a nice feature at the end. It has a mute switch and a volume control, which I like since it's pretty much right below your controller and you don't have to reach on the cord somewhere to try to mute your mic. I like that design definitely and would give it a plus just for that feature. The speaker is decent, not too quiet nor to loud for me. The speaker is semi-adjustable to one side.
The build quality is pretty much a "you get what you pay for" type of thing. It is mostly made of plastic but what can you expect right? I like the headset overall for its simplicity since all I need is something that lets me talk and communicate and something where I can clearly hear my friends and other players. For this price point, I'd recommend it to anyone who is just looking for a working headset that lets you talk and hear. As long as your'e careful with it, you shouldn't end up breaking it as some other reviewers have said. This is a great headset for it's price and I wouldn't get anything at a higher price point since I don't need anything more than what this offers.
Both have volume adjustment and microphone mute either at the base of the controller (microsoft) or built into the wire (plantronics).
Plantronics microphone doesn't start picking up until after I have started speaking. So you would hear this: "......crophone doesn't start picking up _ntil __ter I have started __eking." Microsoft microphone is like talking on a cell phone. (This is the report I got from my friends as I cannot be in two places at once listening and speaking to self report.)
The one by microsoft seems to have the headband curved and squeezing more can reach the top of your ear on the other side of the head from the earphone. If you set it incorrectly on your head it can dig into your brains between where the top of your ear connects with your scalp.
In comparison the Microsoft version while seems much more loose and excessively swivelly, regarding the side with the earphone and microphone, which kinda makes it feel like it could wiggle off your head.
Bottom Line: While the plantronics gamecom x10 looks better and is definitely more comfortable for myself, the microphone is not as good. Which is the whole point.
As for which will go out first, I cannot speak to because I'm sure the one I use the most (Microsoft) will die sooner than the other. I have both, I have a choice I use the microsoft version there ya go.
P.S. this product will come in a bag taped shut, I was a little alarmed but my friend says this is how they come when they come straight from microsoft.
The HEADSET i ACTUALLY recieved, was the huge piece that pluged in at the bottom, with a tiny switch (for on/off) and the volumn located directly at the base of the xbox controller.
I specifically ordered this headset because i prefer the switch half way up over the bulky base piece.
In regards to that i am completly dissattisfied with my order, and dont really plan on using amazon to much anymore because its not the first problem ive had with orders.
I will say, however, that as far as working, the mic does work. but its not the mic i wanted/ordered.
This headset was exceptionally loud, i'm used to turning the volume to full volume to be able to hear people, I started with full volume on this one and was not expecting to need to turn it down some.
I will update review if I have any issues in the near future.
