Music

Music:
"As many people have mentioned before this headset is great for video games, especially FPS, but is not amazing when it comes to movie watching or listening to music."
_
"Music does not sound good on these headphones."
_
"When it comes to music, there is no bass and the volume is not very impressive for what you've spent."
_
"That being said, when they worked, they worked quite well while for gaming, but were mediocre for music."
_
"Previous reviews had my expectations low about music, and 'movie' quality but it turns out that they are just weird."
_
":-)For those who complained about listening to music, just move the speakers closer in the setup."
_
"VERY awful if you enjoy listening to music or pretty much anything other than games."
_
"I heartily recommend the Razer Carcharias headphones as they are built of much more solid construction, simpler interface (just plug them in and you're done), great for games and music, and they cost at least $25 less."
_
"That being said, when they worked, they worked quite well while for gaming, but were mediocre for music."
_
"While audiophiles and sound freaks out there will poo-poo this and that, the vast majority of us will be delighted with the output, even with music."
_
"What I don't like about this product is that the cushions cannot be removed to be cleaned and the static when playing music with it, but other than that I think this is a great buy!"
