Gaming

Gaming:
"As far as gaming, Destiny has quite a lot of sounds that I was missing with regular headphones."

"I would only recommend this is if you really want your gaming system to match or if you like the simplistic aesthetic look of it."
_
"Best bang for buck for gaming"

Hinge

Hinge:
"After about 10 months of ownership, the hinge for the folding mechanism broke."
_
"Garbage in terms of durability, terrible design at the hinges, 100% gurantee to break after 6 months, no metal sheet plate like other Sony headphones."
_
"Well a moth or so ago the left side right above the hinge broke and just now the right side broke."
_
"Beware that this headset is infamous for having the hinges on it break within a few months of average use."
_
"Broken hinge on the right side in 3 months of use."
_
"But three months after I bought them, the hinge broke on the right side, the plastic just snapped and even if I wanted to superglue it I can get the pin back in."
_
"I eventually just wrapped the hinge section with clear packing tape."
_
"Garbage in terms of durability, terrible design at the hinges, 100% gurantee to break after 6 months, no metal sheet plate like other Sony headphones."
_
"But the plastic on the overhead arch cracked, and then the hinges broke too easily."
_
"I'm now seeing reviews about how durable they are, and everyone has broken hinges and cannot seem to return or refurbish them through Sony."
_
"The plastic panels on the sides slip off, the overhead arch is brittle, and the hinges break apart too easily."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Like others have said the mic isn't that great."
_
"I wish they would use a more flexible material because everything else is awesome and it's hard to find a decent headset that doesn't have some giant boom mic in your face."
_
"My one and only complaint is that you may need to tweak the volume settings a bit because my friends and I would notice we could hear ourselves in the microphone of someone else headset causing that irritating echo effect, a simple fix is to just adjust the volume of the microphone down and to not shout."
_
"Pros:Price, Comfortable, Battery Life, Great Sound, Hidden Microphone, Wireless, Companion App presets, Works with both PS3 & PS4 systems."
_
"EDIT: Tip, Make sure you have the headset on the correct way (the mute button should be on your left ear) otherwise the mic will be in the back of your head and your party won't be able to hear you! "
_
"Stellar sound and user friendly controls, these headphones merely have one fault, which is with the microphone."
_
"Great sound quality for the price and the built-in microphone works nicely."
_
"Great sound and comfort with a good mic but build quality as mentioned is laughable."

_
"The plastic headset broke not once, not twice, but now three times in he same area on both sides."
