    Comfortable ski-gear style strap over your head, and awesome sound. Lots of on-ear controls for in-system sounds with the ability to mute it down so you can hear someone talking at you without having to pull them off.

    Audio quality and noise suppression is excellent, with music sounding natural and acoustically accurate, whilst gaming is base and noise so you can hear every footstep!

    Boom mic retracts, and has great pickup of audio for voice, and so far battery has been more than enough 6+ hours straight without charge.

    They don't look terrible, unlike most gaming headsets, so that's a plus. Mic is good. Turning them on is annoying (the button is small and needs to pressed in for 5 secs) and the volume and game/chat knobs change whenever you take the headset on or off, so you have to adjust them all the time. Otherwise pretty good.

    These headphones are very good quality. However, I have to take one star away because of the location of the volume dials. Everytime I take off the headset I accidentally move the dials. I don't even notice until the next time I use them and I am constantly readjusting volume. It's a simple design flaw, but has been more annoying than I expected. That said, great sound, great mic, great microphone retractable compartment, comfortable feel even in long gaming sessions. I still recommend despite the volume dial issue.

    from completed build The build (From 2012 - 2017)

    Sound was a bit off compared to my tatty/old MTH-50s, but after adjusting EQ settings with an ever increasing profile from low to high starting at -3.5 to 2, with the movie preset, they sound just as good. Dynamic Range Compression is off, DTS-X is on. The microphone isnt great compared to my old modmic, but for gaming and discord, its fine. The wireless is reliable, not laggy and the wireless reciever has some neat features, like the ability to plug my phone into the Line IN and have it play through my headset wirelessly and simultaneously with my PC audio. Build is excellent, aesthetic is non-gamery (perfect) and the price is actually very reasonable for the use it will get and the features compared to others on the market. Best headset I've owned. -1 star for mic, but a trade-off im willing to make.

    these headphones are great, whilst the out of the box experience isn't the best with a little tweaking they're now perfect for me. Just wish the mic was better but ahh well can't have everything.

    Wireless. Good sound, nothing extravagant but way better than my HyperX Cloud Core. I am using the optional leather ear pads for more of a closed back sound. The mic is okay, nothing spectacular. Very good battery life. Very comfortable.

    Great wireless headset. I would not use these for listening to music but these are the most comfortable headphones I have used and sound is good enough for gaming.

    Just got these today and I have to say that I am in love. This is the first pair of wireless headphones I've ever owned myself. I had the Corsair Void Pro's for years and these are just so much better for comfort. The wireless feature makes it even better. The only gripe I have with these is that the software isn't very nice for setting your equalization settings. I recommend downloading Peace, and configuring it that way, makes it much better. They also connected right away, didn't have to fiddle with them, and they came half-charged so I'll find out how great the battery is and edit this thread after the fact.

    Edit: It's been a while and I do have some things to say. The ear cups are not thick enough (for me) for extended hours of gameplay. I've looked into some replacement ones that are thicker and will save my ears from the ache. The battery life is amazing, they've never died on me once. I think I've only seen the power led on yellow one time. As far as charging goes, it really doesn't take that long and it doesn't overcharge the battery either. My friends tell me that the microphone is much clearer than the previous headset that I used (Corsair Void Pro). I love this headset, couldn't have picked a better one for what I do on my computer. Just be aware that if you have bigger ears like me that you might have to buy the thicker replacements.

    I recently acquired this headset but I have put a decent amount of use into it. What I can say is that it is extremely lightweight and comfortable, wearable for hours on end without pain. They're also very sleek, though I wish there was a band of light on each ear cup like other models. The sound quality is astounding and the mic is clean, while it comes with sound profiles I prefer to use a separate program (will post later). Only complaint is that while using an xbox controller to game, I think something about both components being wireless causes interference because the controller continually disconnects, though that may be an issue with the controller itself (it's always been a little sketchy at times).
