Rated 4 out of 5 by stupidhead from Honestly fantasticI bought these three years ago. They've held up with aggressive use, and are starting to tear at the cord from poor cable management. If I could take better care of them they'd honestly last another two at least. I appreciate that all of the parts that can fail are modular, but the fact that the 7.1 sound card isn't manufactured anymore is a huge letdown. The only drawback from these is the microphone, it doesn't seem to actually cancel out any background noise at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by peckster1563 from good to wear for long gaming sessions but....bought them a week ago and the flip muting mic barley works and equalizer resets every time i shut my pc off also not the best for people with large heads as the band pulls the earcups up slowly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by scarecrow3000 from Really great headset for price rangeThis is a great headset for the price range. I've had mine for a few months now and have enjoyed the experience. - Very light weight and comfortable.- Great sound, normal bass but can be boosted by rig software, would of like better bass.- Above average noise cancellation though mic is very sensitive and I must use push to talk in games otherwise gamers can here me breathing.- Not physical drivers for surround sound but still does a great job.- 3.5mm jack connection design tends to get stuck on my desk edge when I lean forward over my desk.I would recommend this product to my friends!

Rated 3 out of 5 by CanadianBacon92 from Good sound but, mic does not mute as advertise.I like the sound quality and comfort of the headset, but when you're listening to music, or watching videos and you flip the boom up on the mic, it doesn't actually mute the mic, and it records sound from the earcup.Set recommendation as no, because I'm 50/50 about it.
