Control

Control:
"It is clearer than my expensive Seinhauser, has volume control (didn't realize how often I use it until I had the other that was missing), and the mic can reverse so I can use my right or left ear."
_
"The only negative would be that I would like the volume control located closer to the headphones... but for the price... the quality is great!"

"My biggest complaint is that the volume control is placed too far from the headphones."
_
"The volume control mute is a nice feature, the boom adjusts easily to most any position."

Music

Music:
"I hadn't realized how good the music could sound from my pc until I heard it through these headphones."
_
"I do have Bose QC series and Sennheisers if I want to listen to music, and I can say, purists won't like these for music, but if your priority is communicating effectively and having a serviceable headphone to listen to music once in a while, these are perfect... one caveat though: if you are on a plane and used to noise reduction headphones, these will likely not give you enough volume to hear music movie content over the engines - especially if you are farther back in the plane - still a place for amplified and noise reducing headsets! "
_
"The audio quality blew me away for voice, which is what they are for-I would not recommend them for music as they are a two jack headset."
_
"Music sounds pretty good through them also."
_
"I am no audio pro but these are comfortable and work well for my applications such as listening to music and gaming."
