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.

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.

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.

Model Number: NX 5.1 Headset Verified Purchase
Bought these in February 2012, I think. Sound is ok but not top quality. Considering it's for gaming, personally I prefer comfort for prolonged periods, and it delivers.
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.

For the price I paid for these (around the £20 mark) they are a truly excellent bargain. The build quality exceeds that of a fair number of more expensive products while the sound quality is excellent for gaming and more than acceptable for listening to music. In terms of comfort, I personally found that they could be worn for long periods of time without discomfort (even while wearing glasses). The cable length is also good, meaning your movements are not restricted.

There are however a couple of annoying flaws, the main of which is the on board volume control. For some reason the volume does not increase equally in both ears, which results in a definite skewing of the sound when the wheel is certain positions (irrelevant of input volume from your PC). One other minor complaint is that the sound quality can, at times, sound a little 'flat' and lifeless.

If you're looking for a cheap gaming headset then look no further, these certainly tick all the boxes! But if you're looking for something to compete with a £60-£70+ headset then you're likely to be disappointed...
