Poor vibration and very weak mic but good sound.

Bought these couple weeks ago. Attracted by the price. The sound is good without vibration mode on. The mic just got so bad to a point it's of no use. Vibration mode is very bad. I don't recommend this product.

Okay Quality, but after 1.5 years they broke

For the price, they're not bad. I stopped using the USB vibration gimmick immediately - it was terrible. Soundwise they were okay, but now the left side has popped out of it's housing, and the right side is about to do the same. I have to replace these. The plastic piece that allows the ear pieces to swivel is just not strong enough. I'm an adult who takes fairly good care of things, so this is disappointing. Looking for a replacement.

Great headset.

I've had this headset for a year now. And despite needing to apply some tape to the wire due to my own negligence it works great! It's really comfortable even for a glasses wearer(which I be) I recommend this headset. I can also hear very well in game, footsteps etc etc

Poor quality

I purchased this headset because of its low price. But obviously, you get what you paid for... Only two months after my purchase, the microphone is dead, and the vibration also... The vibration, aside the fact that it weight a ton, system add some undesirable bass humming that seems to last forever after the original kick. The USB power that drives the vibration system isn't filtered at all, so every usb and display input make some very noticeable noise (when you click or browse internet for exemple...).

Amazing Headphones for the Price!

I got this headset for my Husband for our anniversary and it is FANTASTIC. I can't believe how great they are for the price I paid. The vibration system is great - he plays an MMO and you can hear and feel every single hit. I use them to listen to music and it adds to every song I listen to. The microphone is perfect. I couldn 't be happier with this headset!

Clicking noise when browsing the net...

During my browsing on the net and when I type and scroll down in page, I hear this clicking noise every key stoke / Mouse scroll. This really bugs me. Thought it may have been a good headset for a decent price [...]. Still, due to the noise, I do not really recommend it. I may have gotten a defective one, but since my ears are big, it starts to hurt after 2 hrs of wearing this.
