Design

Design:
"However, all the mics that are on a boom or have some sort of similar design with an extended arm; all have terrible microphone quality or had some sort of finicky problem."
_
"Needless to say, it's hard to find a decent headset designed for a head size typically reserved for Goliath and Wilt Chamberlain."
_
"That's a little surprising, because I typically find the behind-the-head design very uncomfortable."
_
"Unfortunately, nothing about the behind-the-ear design is adjustable, which I found odd since the mic is."
_
"This Corsair 1100 gaming headset has superb sound and microphone quality, but the design was terrible."
_
"They have good core features, very solid design and offer maximum comfort all for a small price tag."
_
"The comfort level is very good too, with just the right amount of cushioning and lightweight design."
_
"I'm not used to a behind-the-head design, but it was comfortable and nowhere near as noticeable as the traditional headset."
_
"Putting it on my relatively large head is easy (it uses the street style behind the head design) and stays on well."
_
"This USB gaming headseat is nicely designed."

_

"The sound is amazing and it was just right except for it didn't fit my head."
_
"It's pretty much a perfect fit."
