Comfy even after many continuous hours People hear me nice and clear Inline volume and mute control Mic easily moved away and bends to the optimal position Nice hard shell case that I have yet to use
none for my use
Bought these headphones for PC based gaming a few months ago and use most days. Quite comfortable even for many hour gaming sessions. People say I'm nice and clear so the mic is working well for my usage. I like the inline volume and mute control. Would prefer USB style for my gaming PC but the 3.5mm jack is fine. Not sure what other reviewers are talking about being a special cable. The cable is standard 3.5mm jack that comes in two parts. It's totally removable from the headset and about 8ft long with the first 3 feet having inline controls and the other section is an extender. Quite happy with the performance.

Terrible for big eared folk Limited features Bait and switch on removable cable
I bought these because my Hyperx Cloud II got a kinked wire and stopped playing sound out of one ear. I figured these would have the same overall feature profile, but they absolutely do not. The speakers protrude outside of the headphone casing a bit, so if you've got ears that stick outward you'll start to feel that miserable clenched and pinched feeling after an hour. If you've got a full evening of gaming or movies planned, forget it. I contacted Kingston about it, and they sent me replacement ear pads that were exactly the same. Unlike the Cloud II's options, they only come with one one set of pleather ear cups. Cloud 2 came with the options of cloth and pleather, so if you hate the tacky, sweaty feel of pleather, you're out of luck. And to wrap it up, the removable 3.5mm cable is this weird, elongated, proprietary design. I bought the thing because a kinked cable is the most common problem on headphones, so being able to switch the cable instead of buying new entirely new headphones seemed like a safe bet. It's easy to find a cheap 3.5mm cable lying around, but not for Cloud Alpha! Oh no, you have to buy the proprietary cable for $15. If you've got small ears and love pleather (you monster), go for it. They sound fine and the mic works. Otherwise, us Dumbos must continue our agonizing search for over-the-ear headphones that don't make us shout inappropriate language and fling them off our heads after an hour of use.

This is very comfortable to wear. Good sound. Mic and cable is detachable.
The mic is poor. My 5-year old mic on a stand, that this was intended to replace, records better quality sound. Not good for meetings. The cable needs to be plugged in one way; the other way, you get only intermittent sound.
Good if you rarely need to use the mic.
