5.0 out of 5 stars Looks cheap, feels and sounds top notch 16 May 2011
By Clever Spud TOP 500 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These aren't very exciting to look at but after twelve hours of Portal 2 co-op I can assure you they're comfortable, provide solid sound and clear speech through the microphone. The quality of the sound was actually well beyond my expectations for such a cheap product from a "brand" name.

Because plugging them in creates new USB sound and microphone devices, separate from any existing sound card you might have installed, be aware you may have to adjust the master volume on your PC audio settings. I had a frustrating hour or so listening to my co-op partner, wondering why the maximum volume was so puny - I seriously thought it might be some EU health and safety measure to protect my hearing - until I discovered that the master volume was set at only 20% of maximum.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Dragon dictation 14 May 2011
By Perry Duke VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Performance is great: I'm using these with Dragon voice recognition software, and they're working brilliantly. Windows 7 accepted them as plug and play devices immediately - no set up needed.

I'd rate build quality as OK. There is a very long lead which has a small on/off switch and volume control near headset itself. The switch is marked, so you can tell if the mike is on, and which way to turn the dial to raise volume - obvious, but not the case with (for example) my HP headset. This headset is quite plasticky, with fairly cheap foam padding on the earpieces. Recording quality is very good, and the noise cancelling seems to be effective. Sound reproduction is only really suitable for dictation and conversation - you wouldn't want to listen to music on these.

So, in all: Functionally, these are very good indeed. I'm not sure how robust they would be in the long-term, but for the price these do an excellent job. I'd be happy to recommend them - a good buy if you use your PC for dictation or communication.

Verified Purchase
This is a reasonable headset, that works just fine. The sound quality is ok, they are fairly comfortable to wear, light, and they work with a Mac running Lion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works very well 1 Sep 2011
By Jannoth
I've had problems with several USB headsets on Windows 7 (tho they've worked okay on my XP and Vista systems). This handles everything well except once when it suddenly stopped working - but a reboot solved it. I'm still very happy after owning & using the headset for several months now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just plug in and away you go. 14 May 2011
By OrganicGreen VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Very easy to use with my apple mac. Just plug it in and away you go. Mac just picked it up with no issue. We are not yet connected with skype but use it for the headphones which offer a good quality sound. The headphones are very comfortable to wear and the whole device is well made. The head width is adjustable and the mic angle can be changed for individual fitting. Very good quality product.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant product!! 1 Jan 2012
By wrighty
Product was bought as an Xmas present for my other arf and they're the best headset she's had out of many. Comfortable, easy to set up, superbly clear audio (apparently, according to her Vent buddies) and the built-in soundcard in the USB means that a windows audio issue on her pc that was suggesting a painful format has now been bypassed! Result!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality lighweight headset 29 Dec 2011
I bought 2 of these for my children. They are light and adjustable, with convenient volume and mute buttons at chest height (the headsets, not the children sadly!). They seem to work very well and the USB connector glows a funky blue. What more could you want?

Only drawback--the cord is very long, and has a way of getting tangled around everything. Yes, I do have most of it tied up with a little bungey, but still it finds a way. Read more
