2.0 out of 5 stars Solid but don't expect great sound, 12 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Plantronics 86050-05 Gamecom 380 Gaming Headset (Personal Computers)
My old head set was completely nackered, but one thing I could say it was both good on ear pressure and sound. So what are the pro's and cons.

Pros
Solidly made
Good thick cable which is unlikely to tangle up.
Head set is adjustable to fit most heads, especially the big ones.

Cons
Square ear phones
Insufficient cushioning on ears.
Not likely to fit small heads so well, especially children.
Sound poor to average.

My hears are oval like, not square, they don't quite fit inside the square so the soft rim overlaps them, and nobody has called me big-ears before, so I'm sure its not a genetic defect. However, the build appears to be quite solid, it's a plus but these cans feel bulky and they're stereo doesn't sound stereo. I'm not fully happy as there are slightly uncomfortable a fit and certainly would not recommend them to a friend, unless they had square ears of course.

Poor to average? I would suggest you have hearing issues then.

The sound quality is correctly described.
I expected a lot more from these when I bought them a couple of years ago, for quite a bit more than the current price.
Actually, I own a pair of cheaper Sony headphones that provide a much deeper and accurate sound (but don't have a microphone), and sometimes I even feel my cheap Sony ear-buds sound better, richer and warmer.
The only big plus of this headset is the microphone. It is really great for a headset and that's what use them for these days.
But the headphones quality - mediocre at best.
