 Great set of headphones

At first impressions when you open the box you think that they're a little plain and a bit boring, but when you put them on it's a whole different story. These headphones are great for practically anything you throw at it, music, games, movies and what ever else you could use them for. They have a good amount of bass, but not too much like some headphones have, which is a great plus point as having too much bass can just feel over the top.

And the microphone is pretty good too, I've never had any problems with it and everyone can hear me fine over Ventrilo. (Software that allows you to talk with a group of people)

There are only two flaws that I can find with this headset, one is that if you wear glasses you will not want to wear this headset for long. Wearing glasses whilst you have these on will really start to hurt after 15 minutes and you'll be left with a dent in your skin from where the headphones squeeze the glasses into your head. The other one is that the headset is uncomfortable after a few hours of use.

All in all, if you're looking for a headset that is great at anything you can throw at it, you'll want this. Beware if you're wearing glasses though.

I've had this headset for just under 1 year and the mic has died. Now i've had the model below it before this for a year also and the mic died on that as well. Basically my mic dies after 1 year so i'd imagine the same would happen for you. Good sound quality though through the headphones and when the mic works it sounds clear.
