First off, this headset feel sturdy and seems to have great quality for the price. I purchased this headset because I read a lot of good reviews on the sound( I have to agree with them). The sound is good for the price,no doubt there.
The reason behind giving this headset 4 stars is because the build quality felt solid, the sound was good and it was comfortable( at first). So, yes the headset is comfortable but only for a short time if you have a larger head shape. The ear cushion materials are soft and feel nice around the ears. The problem, however, comes from the headsets dual band suspension design. It is not adjustable and I knew that even before buying it of course, but that design in particular really doesn't give much room for larger heads.
The second flaw that I experienced was with the sound cutting out during gameplay and emitting an ear-piercing ringing. So I had a defective headset, it happens. I am not going to dock a star for that.
All in all the discomfort was the big factor. Good materials but a poor choice in design despite the Steelseries Siberia V2 pulling it off quite well( The dual band suspension that is).
