"Awesome headset"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was pleasantly surprised by how good the audio quality is which is unlike a normal gaming headset, and to top it off they are really comfortable too. Definitely recommend.

Purchased on Mighty Ape

My first headset. I had a bit of trouble setting it up but once I managed that it was perfect. Really good audio, and pretty good quality noise cancelling (I can't hear people knocking on my door). The mic is of high quality. You don't need a super expensive head set. This is one is perfect.

"Very well worth the price"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

These operate very well, fit comfortably and look good. They were bought for my son so my use of them has not been exacting or various.

It did surprise me, given the specifications, the build quality that the years between the designs that they did not appear to keep up with my fairly common Logitech G35 headset in sound quality. Veriy satisfactorily close but now quite there to my ears. The prices vary but I thought 4 or 5 years on the technology may have moved on.

I did try directly on my boy's Logitech gaming keyboard also directly to his recent ASUS mainboard. Both gave fine performance but the mainboard performed better on the limited material I heard.

This is a highly recommendable headset but with qualification…at a price there are better available; without doubt somewhat better than the other one I compared it with.

In it's further defence if any is necessary, the boy reckons this set the more comfortable by far (I may not go quite so far but reckon they are a bit more comfortable.) To his ears the Kingston set is at least as good (my hearing organs may have been beaten down by too much sound over the years)

"No volume control"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I'm somewhat disappointed that a headset that calls itself a “Pro Gaming Headset” doesn't have any kind of volume control. I do have to say the sound quality is very good, given the price. Also they are comfortable to wear and do a good job of blocking out other sounds. However, the lack of anyway to control the volume while in the middle of gaming is a real issues for me. If I was only using them for some kind of media player, I would have no issues with them as I can control volume on the player. Personally, I can't recommend them for gaming.
