Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"I pulled up youtube and clicked a music video suspecting something might be wrong to be presented with audio only in my right ear."
_
"Okay, Pros and Cons:Pros:-Good Audio Quality-Awesome LEDs-Built in EQ optionsCons:-BROKE IN 3 MONTHS!"
_
"The audio quality was fine but not extraordinary."
_
"The PS3 refused to recognize the headset base, so I was unable to select it under the Accessory Settings Audio Device Settings menu option."
_
"Though I was able to get the game and chat audio out OK once setup was complete, I was disappointed to hear intermittent buzzing static."
_
"During good audio times, the quality was mediocre and muddy and at it's worst there would be a buzzing sound in the background."
_
"Having to reset the color each and every time the headset is powered up stinks (wanted it to match the color on my Logitech G600 mouse, but soon gave up).Recording quality has been fine, and audio quality has been decent as well."

_
"Two more powerful audio modes with quite impressive bass and immersive sound... and I have Sennheisers too, so the customer that compared... yeah, Ferrari and Skoda are two car brands, yet you can't compare."

Microphone

Microphone:
"The charge stand connects directly with your TV's optical and HDMI ports and the sound signals are then broadcast directly to the headphones (up to 100 feet).Slightly annoying feature:* Small LED light at tip of the mic is annoying because you can see it from the corner of your eyeIf using with the Xbox One:* You'll need the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter* In Settings under Digital Audio be sure that HDMI audio and Optical audio are selected* You'll also need to recalibrate the Kinect once everything else is in place."
_
"For listening they work OK, but again I was unable to get the microphone to work at all."
_
"I was even more upset that I was totally unable to get the chat microphone set up to work with the PS3."
_
"From my testing, the mic is not the greatest."
_
"The mic, sadly, does not fare as well."
_
"While it's far from the worst mic I've ever used, a purchaser might expect a little more."
_
"... a handy led fixed to the mic casing (mic is also FULLY retractable, and able to be, with a little push, stowed neatly INSIDE THE SET, not just flipped or bent up, over, or whereever, out of the way, but completely out of sight n out of mind, all but the handy dandy led tip which affords the user a color coordinated, indefinite means of SEEING AND KNOWING exactly which sound mode they have activated at any given time.... clean n clear(blue), xtra bass(red), or the precise motion location to sound extra-attentive SUPER-surround mode(purple), which gives a nice middleground bass hi-wise and super attentive focus to surroundsound based on environment, movement, n directional presence within the game itself... MY PERSONAL FAVORITE..... AND THEN.... JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU'VE ALREADY BEEN SOLD..."
_
"The Mic is very good you will be very happy with this headset no doubt about it."
_
"Mechanics: Mic pulls out on a flexible wire to fit your comfortably, though I was heard loud and clear with it retracted fully into the headset."
_
"I also think the angling of the mic is also an issue with this as well."
_
"It tucks in and extends easily* Like telephones, the mic transmits a small portion of your voice to the headphones."
