Headphones: Good. Mic: Not so good
on 20 August 2014
The headphones are adjustable, they're quite stiff to adjust so there's no worries about them randomly slipping around while you're wearing them. The actual bits that cover your ears are a slightly small - which is perfect for me as I have strangely small ears, but they might be a little uncomfortable if you have larger ears. It might also degrade sound quality, as there will be more room for the sound to escape from.
The ear parts are soft, and the sound quality is much better than I expected it would be. Obviously it's not going to compare to Bose, or an expensive pair of JVC headphones. But I'm really pleased, especially considering the price!
There are two jacks that plug into your computer/laptop/tablet. Pink for the mic, green for the headphones - standard set up. The wire that connects the the headphones to the jacks has been covered in a thin woven rope, which will help them last longer. Also, where the wire connects to the headset there's a small piece of elastic that will stop you from ripping the wire from the headset.
The mic is positionable, but not very sensitive. I bought this for language learning and it takes several attempts (and me speaking quite loudly) for it to pick up what I've said, and frequently it only picks up bits of what I say (and, strangely, it refuses to pick up anything I say in French, but works fine with German...). I imagine this wouldn't be too much of an issue if you want this headset for Skype and the such, but maybe not the best if perfect pronunciation is important.
