5.0 out of 5 stars Superior. 19 Aug 2013
Model:Stereo Headset|Verified Purchase
This is the best headset in the world, in my opinion. Now this may sound stupid to some of you, but as a PC gamer I've had a fair few headsets in the past. I even had a USB Medusa NX 5.1 headset, which wasn't bad but sadly the audio was a bit crackly and eventually based on where the volume wheel was positioned on the in-line audio controller, sound would turn on and off on the left ear cup.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set 28 Oct 2011
Model:Stereo Headset|Verified Purchase
I wasnt really paying attention when I ordered this headset as i thought it was a USB Headset. Luckily though I have headphone and mic ports in the front of the computer and its easy to set up using Realtek.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection 3 Feb 2011
Model:Stereo Headset|Verified Purchase
Fast delivery and on time. Package of the box was excellent. Packaging of the item inside could of been better as when i opened it one of the grills from the right ear had come off, but it was just a matter of clicking back into place.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great headphones, worrying microphone 17 Jun 2012
Model:NX 5.1 Headset|Verified Purchase
So I had problems with my last headset, a Steelseries set that lost the sound on the left hand side. I can't complain I'd had them a couple of years and they were well used. So I decided to look for a 5.1 pair. After a lot of review chasing and price checking I decided on the Medusas. When ordering Amazon were kind enough on the product page to point out there was an updated set available, at a cheaper price too. Having lived with them now for a lot of online gaming sessions I can say that they are a very effective set and I am more than happy with the sound. However, they lose a star as I am not sure on the life expectancy of the microphone. It is on a very flexible mount that wasn't even straight when it came out of the box and is all too easy to knock out of shape just taking them on and off. I can say that the actual micrphone sound quality is amazing, Teamspeak is a lot clearer both sending and receiving vox. On the whole I'd recommend anyone looking for a surround set give these a second look as on the whole they are excellent value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, great sounding 5 July 2014
Model:Stereo Headset|Verified Purchase
Really nice headset - very comfortable and cover the ears perfectly. Microphone sounds great on the computer and with my Amateur Radio equipment which it was purchased for. You may want to add a foam windshield on the mic, but otherwise it's a nice product.

Got this for a friend for gaming, he likes it. But for him its more about the amount of bass than the overall quality of the sound. Read more
