The Headset is pretty impressive really, the mic is nice and flexible and not one of those soft ones that sometimes you dribble on when playing! The headphones are BIG but soft and comfortable, ths sound is great, mic is responsive and there is a nice little control on the lead for mic mute, volume and tone, although the tone one is a bit pointless!
To sum up, these ARENT USB but are a fantastic buy for the price, and I would expect a headset of this quality to be much more expensive.
Anyway, prior to having the NX 5.1, for years I had the NX Stereo. Now, 5.1 and 7.1 are gimmicks, many people will bash folks and deny this but the truth is, there is such little difference in speaker posititioning in ear-cups that time difference between sound sources is not adequate enough to cause a decent effect. You can definitely hear it from individual speakers, but it's far from realistic. Also, based on the game you're playing, coverage from each speaker in the cup might either be good or bad based on the way the audio works in game. Also, since many console games come to PC, much of the audio is stereo and many true PC games using multi-channel audio can be played across the Stereo channels brilliantly.
The headset itself is superb. This is my 2nd. They are built well. The microphone has always been TOP NOTCH. The speakers and ear cups are brilliant. Not only are they shaped well and large enough for my long ears, but it is also comfortable for hours upon hours of games. The goose neck-mic is a great addition as well.
Another great thing is the 2.8m cable giving tons of freedom. Not only that but like all good headsets should have, is the cable attaching to ONE ear-cup and not two, thus preventing tangles.
My only gripe is the head band. It's like a thin, stringy like membrane.Read more ›
The actual item itself is superb. Great sound quality (especially for gaming, which i bought it for. Nice deep bass and crisp sound quality overall, light weight, soft padding on the ears and do not hurt your ears after long usage.
Overall im very pleased with the headset.
even the box it came in was cool
Ear cups are the right size for me, and microphone sound quality is also good. I use it constantly with teamspeak when playing with my clanmates, and works perfectly.
The only thing to complain about is that the first ones stopped working on the right side after a couple of months. The volume control is kind of heavy, and just hangs in there, putting pressure on the cable on the left side. Eventually messed up the cable connection to the speakers, it seems.
Amazon sent me a replacement right away. :)
I'm now just more careful not to leave the volume controls hanging.
Overall, I'm satisfied.
UPDATE: The second ones lasted a bit over 1 year. Some of the speakers stopped working, and I decided to open the volume control box. The soldering inside was pathetic, and was basically just a matter of time before it happened.
For the price, sound quality, and comfort, the price is ok(ish), but only 3 stars, since the build quality seems so bad I'm never going back to speedlink products. It's the first time I had 2 items breaking down so fast.
So, if you are an audio purist like me on a tight budget, the Sennheiser HD201 is much much better for a similar price. That's what I use. The bass monkeys will say it lacks bass, which is true, but the quality of the bass it has is better, and the overall audio quality is way better, more like "reference grade". They only really lack bass if you plug them into rubbish PC motherboard audio or an improperly configured frequency equalizer. If you plug the HD201s into a good source, and up the bass a bit, you'll find they have plenty of good tight bass.
