I want to give them 5/5 so bad. But I can’t, unfortunately.

I want to start off by saying I love this headset! But, it’s not perfect.
-Sound Quality 5/5: The sound on these, even arbitrary max volume, is amazing! Listening to music sounds great, they can compare to my audiotechnica MX-50’s. The directional sound in gaming works great and I can really tell which direction sounds are coming from.
-Connection 4.5/5: It holds a very solid connection, both on PC and PS4. I can go a fair amount of distance away; it does start losing the connection when going around walls though, but that’s to be expected.
-Material 5/5: I really like the feel and overall construction of this headset. Feels very luxurious.
-Comfort 3/5: I’ve got a bigger than average head and ears. Even I’ve got the headset to the maximum length, I still start feeling uncomfortable after a 1-2 hours. Not pain, but definitely uncomfortable. Same goes for my ears, I can feel them touching the inside of the cups, and this can sometimes hurt, but not always. Unfortunately (for whatever reason), the ear cups are not removable, so I can’t swap them out for larger ones or this would be fixed.
This is not to say the headset isn’t comfortable, because it definitely is at first. It just doesn’t last. Maybe a smaller head would be fine though.
-Durability 3/5: I left this in the front pocket of my back pack with a PS4 in the back pocket, over night. The next morning the headset was warped. I had to bend it back to normal, which I almost got perfectly. It remains ever so slightly bent though.
-PC Connection 4/5: I don’t know if it’s the CUE software or what, but it always takes a bit to start hearing sound and hear “Mic On” when turning the headset on. Sometimes it takes a few seconds, a few rare times up to 15 seconds.
-Mic Quality 2/5: The microphone is clear, but very nasally. However, I do like that it is detachable! The mute button is appreciated too.
Overall, this is a great choice for a headset!
Whether you’re on PC or PS4. Especially if you have an average head size and mic quality is not an issue. Also, I see that it is often on sale for $60-$70. At this price point it’s a steal. I would think twice about spending $100 on it, though.
