Cable

Cable:
"The only drawback is the very, very long cord, lol!"
_
"i bought these mostly because of the price but i guess u get what u pay for they broke in the first 2 days of use and the cable is kinda short at least i thought but yeah i used 3 4 times and the ear piece came off i tried gluing it on but then the mic broke so i took the ear piece back off and the knot holding the ear piece came out and now its in the garbage"
_
"(Try talking to someone while the rest of the house is asleep, this headset will allow you to).If I could possibly come up with a complaint, it's that the cord is freakishly long."

"I also know they're primarily made for simple chat (VOIP) but so many people here spoke highly of the quality for music and movies as well that I now think that most of the reviewers here are new cochlear implant recipients and this being the only headset they could afford after such an expensive surgery is, to them, akin to the angels heralding from on high."

_
"The ear foams is comfortable and allows the music through with no distortion."

Speaker

Speaker:
"The sound quality and Mic quality was pretty good...until the connector between the left speaker and the main head band broke."
_
"junk, the speakers fell out of the headsets almost immediately after use."
_
"Very weak feeling, and has came apart numerous times, its incredibly frustrating as both the microphone and speaker quality are actually really decent for the price, and the adjustable microphone and volume control is a bonus, however small drops can separate the green plastic part from the foam and the enclosure itself is bad, adjustable is nice, but not when it breaks from a toss 2 feet away onto a bed."
