Flawed but decent,
This review is from: Gioteck EX05 Wired Multi Format Headset (PS3/Xbox 360/PC) (Video Game)
I'd like to be clear; I didn't buy this from Amazon.
Overall, this is a decent headset. I've owned a pair for about a year now.
- The sound quality is excellent. I've also been told that the microphone picks up clearly and loudly (I could speak from 3 meters away at normal volume, and it would trigger voice activation).
-They're quite comfortable for long periods of time. I should know, I'm a World of Warcraft raider.
-They look rather neat and unconventional.
-Whilst the headband is indeed lightweight, it is also not very sturdy. The strap on mine partially broke after a month or so (one of the bands broke free on one end). While it is still quite usable, it was somewhat uncomfortable to wear if not adjusted correctly.
-The paint on the side of the earphones is not durable at all. I have a habit of scratching lightly at the earphones, and straightaway I noticed paint coming off.
-The software can be quite finicky. I once had a period where the headset would not work due to random driver issues.
So in general, it's a decent headset and worth your consideration; just make sure you're not too rough with it.
