This headset is very sturdily designed, sometimes to the point where it can be draining to wear for long periods of time. If it had just a bit more padding and less weight to it, I could recommend it more readily.

I'd say for a budget pair until you invest in something more extreme, you can't go wrong here. The 5.1 Surround is barely noticeable sadly but handles Bass quite well.

"Worth it!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Amazing at this price range, Very solidly built, great sound, weather im playing L4D2 or BF3 these are great as far as sound quality and voice quality, nice lengthy thick cable and solid build on the headset makes this a mid-range budget gamers dream, you will not regret the decision, good deep base, my only warning is not to play with it on highest volume, could damage the ear drums!

"For the price, they're actually pretty good."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I wear these at work. For stereo corded headphones, they got decent sound, and block out most ambient noice.

Sounds very good with lots of bass but not much treble. Gets really uncomfy on your head after awhile due no soft paddings and its heavy as well. All else good.

A moderately priced headset providing you with quality mic and sound when you don't have much much to spend on a fancy headset.
