Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Microphone

Microphone:
"Mic failed after 2 months, Tossed them, not a good thing for a fairly spendy set of headphones."
_
"I had just gotten a new PC (with Windows 7) and my Siberia's mic was damaged, and he was on his iMac."
_
"I had to return mine because it didnt fit my head well, and it was not that compatible with my computer;HOWEVER, mic quality is probably one of the best out there."
_
"The microphone seems to be good and I do like that it is very flexible and can be positioned in any which way."
_
"+ Mic produce great sound, my friends on Curse Skype can hear me just fine+ Built in volume adjustment and mute switch+ Very comfortable headband and ear cushions+ Ear pieces swivel 90 degrees; This is used when you are taking a short break, and want to rest the headset ear pieces on your chest.+ Great sound+ USB plug n play, no need to fiddle with mic heaphone cords+ Headset is actually very lightweightCons- 7.1 surround sounds doesn't work on Windows 10 (but still, the sound is great)- The built in volume adjustment actually adjusts your PC's volume- Bass is kind of weak (maybe can be changed with the mixer?"
_
"I've not had any complaints from those i've spoken to with it about the mic not picking up."
_
"Great mic and audio quality."
_
"Pro's-the sound is fantastic for a $25 headset-long usb-virtual 7.1-volume and mic adjustment on unit itself-soft earpads-adjustableCons-windows 10 is a pain-if you have big ears like i do, it may take a bit to get a 100% comfortable position"

Price

Price:
"Getting the software drivers to work with Windows 10 was a hassle, but for the price, this headset is a bargain."
_
"My ONLY problem with the 780 is the CHEAP cord which is why I am getting a replacement for when the cord breaks."
_
"I've had 4 of these now...they're great quality for quite cheap...but they're so cheap in some parts of their construction."
_
"Love these especially for the price."
_
"I firmly believe that this headset will replace the tried and true TB x12 stereo gaming headset, also, probably the best price for a decent headset for less than $30."
_
"Excellent buy for the price."
_
"Conclusion - buy if you want great sound quality for low price, but be prepared to buy a new different headset after a year or so."

"Only downside is the ear muffs have 0 sound cancelling quality to them."

"Sounds great."
_
"When it does work it does sound pretty cool."
