Strengths of the product

cheap, use exclusively for online gaming

Weaknesses of the product

The mic breaks often, I paid $5 for replacement warranty and get a new pair often because of this weakness, or you could call Microsoft and give them the serial ID # on back of remote Mic controller and they will sent a new pair no questions asked.

Additional Comments

Nothing to lose, with replacement warranty, you will always have a new pair at least twice a year

Nasty Headset

Strengths of the product

Moderately comfortable.

Weaknesses of the product

Awful sound, poor quality noise canceling. Nowhere on the specs or packaging does it indicate or display the connection type. Wouldn't that be nice? It's USB 2. 0

Additional Comments

Don't even bother with these unless you just don't care.

Cheap headset

Strengths of the product

Works with Skype

Weaknesses of the product

Stiff, poor sound quality, uncomfortable even for short duration, in-line volume control way too big and in bad location.

Additional Comments

Was looking for a cheap USB head set. The cheap analog head sets are far superior to these for less. I would not recommend these to anyone.

Strengths of the product

-Good value at $30 -Decent Audio quality -Mic is clear to start

Weaknesses of the product

-Headset is fairly uncomfortable around the ears, even after you get used to it -The mic shorted out after only 4 months of use. Didn't ever drop them and took really good care of them, so it is disappointing that the mic would wear out after only 4 months of use.

Additional Comments

Good quality for a short time, but after that the mic quickly breaks down. Get the IPR on them for sure.

Good headset, medium lifespan

Strengths of the product

USB interface is great, good volume control and sound for chat is fantastic. I use this headset everyday for online classes. Earcups are comfortable after prolonged use. Mic quality is fantastic, and bass sound makes music sound great!

Weaknesses of the product

Wiring has affected the mic - when I turn my head to the side, a short develops in the wiring after 1 year of use.

Additional Comments

Headset is good quality except for the wiring. Will buy these again once they completely go.

Good mic, but sound quality is below par, even for the price

Strengths of the product

The USB interface is very convenient and sidesteps the potential line-in gain issues that plague lower-cost analog headsets. The mic comes across very clearly. I found comfort to be ok for up to 3 hours.

Weaknesses of the product

Contrary to the other reviewer, I find these to sound terrible. There is a noticeable bass extension, and overall emphasis on the bass, but this does not a good headphone make. The mids are very baffled, the highs very unclear, and past a certain point, they are just completely muted. They are ok for Skype, or even multiplayer PC games, but not even remotely acceptable for music.

Additional Comments

I bought these based on the other review praising the sound quality and after trying them out, my only conclusions are that either there is a huge sample variance or the previous reviewer has severely faulty hearing. My sample sounds worse than ~half the <$10 headphones you could buy. I've owned over 30 headphones, and these truly are near the bottom, even considering their price...

Amazing sound, if a touch uncomfortable.

Strengths of the product

- Bright, clear high end. - No "sibilance. - Full warm bass, without any distortion. - Good quality audio pickup from microphone.

Weaknesses of the product

- Ear-cups a bit small, leading to ear-discomfort after extended listening. Would have earned 5/5 if not for this one fault.

Additional Comments

These headphones have no business sounding as good as they do, considering what they cost. The Mic works well too ... but it's hard to get over how great these things sound. They hold up well against my AKGs, phones that cost about 5x what these did. Unbelievable. I'm not sure how they packed in this much sound quality in at this pricepoint, but who cares. Get a pair, you won't regret it.
