Cable

Cable:
"I have no idea what they were thinking making the cable out of the material they choose because it is permanently coiled and annoying."
_
"Wire is just terrible the cord was so deformed and twisted coming out of the headset that it made it uncomfortable to wear."
_
"The only negative is the cable, which is quite stiff."
_
"Pros: Comfortable, decent bassCons: cord, build quality little weak, might seem muddy at times"
_
"The cord is on the longer side, and for my big head, this is very comfortable."
_
"Since routing the cord around my desk(which i highly recommend to people who use this headset as their only headset) It only coils once in the space where i put the headphone down."
_
"This is added to by the fact that its not a detachable cable, so it cant be replaced(easily)."
_
"Great headphones, a lot of people complain about the long cable but it's really no problem if you use some zip ties! "
_
"These headphones are the most expensive I bought so far and sound great to me (I do use the EQ to up bass a little bit).The cable is super long so I just keep the wire tie on it to keep up all the slack."
