5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for so little cost, 26 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Plantronics 86050-05 Gamecom 380 Gaming Headset (Personal Computers)
I've purchased over the last 6 months 5 headsets (Yes, almost 1 a month) off of Amazon. Only 1 of those 5 have been replaced due to breaking, the rest have been replaced due to poor sound quality or discomfort. I almost didn't purchase these based on price and the fact that many others In this price range (20) have been of poor sound quality but with these that Is not the case at all.

Firstly these are by very comfortable even for me with my big head and rather large ears. They don't sit too tight on my head like other pairs have done and they also fit over my ears unlike previous headsets. Not fitting over my ears fully left me uncomfortable after maybe 50-60 minutes of wearing them and left a gap which allowed noise from other sources to distract and annoy me (When I am gaming I don't want to hear the TV) which was my biggest gripe with other headsets.

The sound quality from these Is almost flawless and without a doubt superior to most other headsets In the same price range. Bass Is deep and punchy even at high volume levels whilst still keeping voice clarity throughout the volume range. This headset uses 2 jack plugs connectors for the headset and the attached microphone.

Instead of having a volume controller In the cable this has 1 located on the left speaker along side a mute microphone button which compared to my previous headsets is fantastic as I used to catch the controller all the time when I changed position.

I would highly recommend these to anyone who wants exceptional sound quality for gaming, listening to music or watching a film.

What the hell? 5 headsets in 6 months?

I ordered one of these on Thursday, it's on it's way. That just sounds awful.

:| Oh well, I'll replace 10,000 of these if I have to. Sounds bad.

I don't think 5 stars are good if they break once a month.

He meant he has had 4 others and this one was good!

Don't suppose you could tell me if these are USB or Jacks?
