3.0 out of 5 stars Not much to complain about (apart from the terrible build quality), 13 Sept. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Speedlink SL-8793-SBK-02 Medusa NX 5.1 Surround Gaming Headset (Accessory)
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.
