Decent. Good for casual, not the best for serious gamers.

Bought this years ago to game on my Xbox. For the 360 it worked great. Pretty comfortable to wear and had the ability to control the voice volume and the game volume separately. Not a feature you see for a headset of this price. Although for the Xbox one that setting didn't work for me and I could only control mic AND game volume with one knob. Not sure if I just didn't install something correctly or if that's an issue with this thing. Also my friend would say he could hear my buttons/joystick clicking which he found annoying.
For PC I probably wouldn't recommend this. It picks up the sound everywhere around because of the mic design, so my keyboard clicks can be heard if I have my mic activated openly during a game. Also, since it's USB powered, it plugs into the computer and because of the design of the headset, it actually will pick up some sounds/feedback from the machine itself. It "thinks" that some sounds on the PC are actually supposed to be projected into the microphone. Even if you mute the mic, because of the USB plug, some sounds will actually be sent to the mic, so it will be like you are projecting those sounds through your mic to the other players. I alleviated this problem by plugging the USB portion of the headset into a separate outlet with a USB plug. It's for power only so you don't need it actually plugged into a computer USB, any USB is fine.
I think for a more casual gamer who just wants a cheaper headset but still get an immersive gaming experience, it would be great. For a more serious console player or PC gamer, especially one who likes to communicate and play well, you might be better off going for something else. But if you are fine with the issues I presented, or are willing to press a button to chat on PC every time you want to, sacrificing a hotkey, go for it. It's good quality sound, just a few issues with the design that I don't like.
