"I love that I use these both with my mobile and on a sound board (with 1 4 adapter).These do a really great job of cutting out all the external noise...I can easy single out a single channel on the board even in the middle of a performance."

Price

Price:
"Got them for $30 a while back a cheap alternative for gaming headphones and be able to chat with friends"
_
"Then I tried this headset on my computer with Skype; this time, people could barely hear me and still also heard noise on the line, maybe because of having to plug the headset into a splitter (which came with the headset).I ordered a USB Logitech headset for my computer, and went back to my OEM earbuds while I keep looking for a decent, affordable headset for my phone."
_
"They are good headphones, and worth the price."
_
"Great value for the price even though they do not screen out external sounds as well as pricier models."
