Bought this headphone set 8 months ago, sound is good the surround change from aspect to aspect is nice and fluid, no "skipping" like a cpl of others I have tried...HOWEVER the microphone is already not working and both Amazon and sennheiser refuse to take the item back for refund or repair, which for a high cost gaming headset is pretty poor indeed.

If you are not so picky about sound changes from different directions the medusa is a capable set and much much cheaper.

Great headset work a treat, the bass is great and when used with an X-Fi card the sound quality is as good as Bose headphones.

Teamspeak Friendly 28 Dec. 2006
By Bryan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
These are my 3rd headset purchase in 3 years. The previous sets were Plantronics and Altec Lancing high end. Compared to the previous headsets, this set has a crisp sound quality I did not know existed with both the earphones and microphone. I am so pleased with this purchase and my previous alarm with the price I decided to pay for them just evaporated. You get what you pay for. Comfort for my large adult head was excellent. I really like the long cord. I cannot complain about a single thing. No cons. Great for Teamspeak and makes my voice sound better when transmitting.

Read the great reviews, but 16 Feb. 2006
By S. Devol - Published on Amazon.com
I was disappointed. The stereo effect in games is disconcerting, with noise directionality being 'off'. For example, when driving a tank in BF2 (straight forward) the engine noise is obviously slanted to the right. If I turned to the left slightly, the engine noise would come to 'center' then settle back to the right as I straightened out.

I found these uncomfortable to wear for over 30 minutes as well. I do have a large head (go ahead, yuck it up, I always take the largest motorcycle helmet size) so that might have something to do with it...

The microphone worked very well, with minimal background noise interference.

A Darn Good Headset. 15 Mar. 2006
By Shane Martin - Published on Amazon.com
I've had this headset for about a year, and my review is that the sound quality, especially when playing music, is very good. I haven't had many sets of headsets, but these will whip any lower-priced headsets, obviously because you're getting what you paid for. Sounds are crisp, loud, and during games, people won't sneak up behind you if you're paying attention.

The microphone quality is just as good as the speakers. The noise cancelling makes for a very crisp, clear conversation.

The only problem I've seen develop is that the headset itself makes the inside of my right ear rather hyper-sensitive to touch (painful). Of course, this is after wearing them continuously for 5 hours or more due to the humidity that the headset holds while you game or listen to music. My reccomendation is to take a 20 minute break after a few hours of playing and you will be fine.

Great Headset 6 Nov. 2006
By DSpoon - Published on Amazon.com
Hands-Down, Sennheiser makes some of the best audio equipment around, and this headset is no exception. It is very comfortable, the sound quality is great, and the mic picks up very well. My only complaint is a double-edge sword; they dont fit tightly on your ears which makes them more comfortable, however if you lean your head downward they more than likely will fall off (This may be on account of my small head). The cord is long enough for you to stand up and walk around in front of your computer.

I use these with a Sound Blaster X-FI Platinum which has the headphone and mic inputs right in front on the Live Drive. If you intend to use the mic, it is important that the ports are next to each other, or you have an extension on the mic input. Integrated sound or audio cards with front bay drives are the best setup for this.

Nice sound quality, but they hurt my ears. 3 Aug. 2006
By A. Crider - Published on Amazon.com
I use these for Skype teleconferences and World of Warcraft. While the audio quality of the mic is great and the headphones is quite good, the pressure on my ears makes them unbearable to wear after an hour. I'm tempted to just wear them around my neck to use the mic and plug in $10 earphones for my longer meetings.
