Pros Comfortable for long periods of time
Cons Wish the mic was directly in front of the mouth
Summary I've bought at least 4 Altec Lansing headsets (502), all broke within 4 months (usually the right side goes out). I took a chance on logitech and i'm impressed with the performance. I play Ghost Recon hours at a time, usually about 4. And every 30 min I would have to take off the Altec Lansing headset because my ears would hurt due to the pressure and heat. After using this Logitech headset for Ladder gaming on weekends, I have felt no ear fatigue at all and glad that there's not a heat issue
After reading these other reviews, man... wth you talkin about? you must have big heads or something. Plus, you are wearing it the wrong way if you think the back of the headset sits on your neck... it's actually designed not to touch the back of your head, but sit like it's on air.
Pros Sound quality for the price, comfortable headband
Cons In-line volume/mute adjustment button
Summary This is my third pair of this headset. I initially bought them acouple years ago for $50 and loved them. But months later the in-line volume adjustment button started shorting out, causing the headset to go from nice stereo sound to one side of the headset not working until the button was played with and found a happier setting.
But being happy with the feel and the sound quality, I've since bought 2 more, and each has had the EXACT same problem, and I don't really change the volume that much.
If there was a way to fix this one issue, I'd recommend these for all gamers, but they seem to last about 6-8 months before the issue gets out of hand.
Pros Good microphone.
Cons Extremely uncomfortable.
Summary I am so stupid for not looking at reviews first for these headphones. They suck. Very uncomfortable on the ears. There are too many other headsets out there for similar price to even think to buy these.
Pros Great Design, Sound and Mic!
Cons Slips off ears after a while it looses shape stiffness!
Summary Well got tired of replacing headsets and when I seen this headset last year I realized it was made for heavy gamers and decided to buy them. I am not a fan of wrap around head sets what so ever but seriously if you get tired of buying new headsets this is for you.
The Mic boom on it is as rugged as the whole headset and other then it slipping off my head from time to time it's still a solid product non the less!
Pros Sound is awesome, volume control on cord spins like and ipod very nice, the cord is very thick compared to most headsets and its plenty long. The mic is out of the way and works fine.
Cons My girlfriend says the look goofy on my head ;-/ but she still loves me. ;D
Summary I have seen alot of reviews on here that say the mic isn't loud enough, ummmm....it's your audio card that determines the volume not the headset. I'm using the on board audio on my ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe and I'm heard loud and very clear when talking in a conversaional tone while playing CSS. I like that the mic is out of the way of your mouth so you're free to drink or snack without having to move the mic everytime.
As far as the bass? it's there and sounds fine, I mean it's not like you have a subwoofer on your head but its there. I listened to some R&B with bass and I used the advanced controls to push up the bass and it was more than acceptable, especially for the 14.99 I paid for them from surplus computers.
The fit, well they're desigined so that you can flip them over either way, I found one way not to fit too well but when flipped the other way after 15 min. or so they were very comfortable. They're desigined so that it's the pads that fit against your head, not the actual ear pieces against your ears. However if you have very large ears they will be pinned under the pad. I have large ears and the pad fits around them. I beleive Logitech's intent was not to have anything mashing against your ears to create a more comfortable headset. However I beleive they would have achieved a much better head set if the pad arms swiveled to adjust the angle. Hope this helps those contimplating a purchase.
