Over the past 6 years of pc gaming, I have owned 3 pairs of these headphones, they did not however break due to the product being cheaply made. I sat on the first and accidently tripped over the wire on the second. The third however, is lasting, why do I keep buying these headphones for gaming? Several factors: The price, they're so cheap for the sound quality you get from them, there is a lot of bass, great for gaming and music alike. Quality, they last - full volume for sheer mindblowing sound - they never go "tinny"! Detachable microphone, great for when the mic isn't being used at the time, you don't have to constantly have it infront of your face. The mic is brilliant too, my friends all comment on how clear I sound and ask what headset I am using. Would I recommend it? Without a doubt, greatest headset i've had the pleasure of owning.
