I bought the headset for IM and gaming but didn't expect much from it because of the price and lack of reviews.
However, the sound quality of the headphones aren't that bad, they work well for chatting and you can hear in-game sounds very clearly. They're not too bad for listening to music either but if your picky, you may have a problem with the quality of sound.
The mic is perfect for casual chatting in MSN or Skype but doesn't work too well in xfire. For gaming purposes the mic is fine as long as you're planning on using Teamspeak and not xfire or in-game chat.
My biggest problem with the mic is that the noise cancellation is quite poor, it will block out the TV in the background and your own voice if you talk quietly to yourself but it will easily pick up 'Snappy' sounds like putting something down on the desk or pressing the spacebar. This makes it much better to use key activation rather than voice activation to unmute the mic in some applications.
Overall though it is a good quality headset for the price, you wont look like an idiot wearing it and its comfortable and out of the way.
By the way, it does have in-line controls like it says in the description...at least mine didn't -_-
EDIT: Following this review, the product now IS as described.
The product you will get does not have in-line volume/mute controls. Does not have interchangeable colours. And does not have 3 meters of cable as it tells you it will in the specifications above. Those are all on the more expensive Logitech headset.
Despite that fact, the headset itself is extremely good. Wear and tear happens less quickly than with other headsets I've used. I would suggest everybody pay the extra however, and buy the next model up with the above specifications. It's definitely worth it for the length and the volume control.
This is an excellent product. Despite the cheap price, the headset works extremely well. The sound is clear and the mic is adjustable and you can bend it towards your mouth so you need not have to speak very loud. Overall its good!
An uncomfortable headset, this product could be ok for someone who doesn't use it much or for very long but any period of time using this headset is extremely uncomfortable. Also have had complaints about sound quality when using teamspeak to a point where I have had to repeat things several times. Expected more from a well respect manufacturer.
