I purchased this for my son and to use with the XBOX ONE. Have used it 2 weeks now everyday for a few hours and we love them. Cord is fairly long but not excessive, sound quality is great, mic works good, and they are comfortable. I use the headset with or without the XBOX ONE adapter depending on which controller I use. All in all a good buy. I would recommend these for a friend and buy another if I need it for the 2nd XBOX.
Update: It’s been almost 7 months and they continue to work well. Son uses them every single day. They take a beating from him even with us telling him to treat them well (dropping, cramming them into their storage bin, tripping over them, etc). No issues to report.
Update #2: So I had purchased a different brand headset for me that was a bit more expensive - something a bit more Gucci for myself. Well my cat (who is a space cadet) ate thru the cord of those. They are done. So I looked at my sons headset (the ones on this review) and the cord is thicker and more rugged. With as much as my son uses them (and leaves them out) I can only assume my cat has attempted but been unsuccessful to chew threw it. So, bottom line is, if you have a cat that chews cords - this headset is a good choice because of the design of the cable between jack and headset. Just another example of the durability of this model. Guess that’s what I got for buying another brand. Good luck.
Update #3: it’s been a year and a half now, and after heavy daily usage my son finally damaged them. Where the cable plugs into the jack he either pulled the cable partially out or twisted the cable so much it partially separated from the jack. One headphone and the mic still work, but the other headphone is silent now. I taped it up with electrical tape to try and limp along. Only a matter of time now until it is completely broken. Still, 18 months and they are still around and working, absolutely worth the purchase.
Update #4: Shortly after update 3 the headphones stopped working. We probably could have limped along in that above condition but my son didn’t change his handling of them to try and make them last, so they broke. I’m going to attempt some repair but I’m doubtful about the results.
SUMMARY: GREAT HEADSET FOR KIDS. TOTALLY WORTH IT. GREAT SOUND AND MIC. THEY LASTED 18 MONTHS AND HE TREATED THEM BADLY AND USED THEM DAILY.
UPDATE #5: We purchased a second pair to replace the first. These work just as well. They get daily use and still get treated like, not well. Great headset!
