Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"The whole cable (boompro mic) is exactly like V-MODA's other cables, kevlar wrapped but the adapter is the extra flimsy plastic cable we're all so familiar with."
_
"Many people have complained of low volume while using the headset adapter with whatever headset they're using."
_
"When using the microphone with the Y-adapter I had to turn the connector (where the microphone's 4 pole jack meets the adapter) and push on it to be able to receive all of the sound."
_
"Something else that was recommended to purchase alongside this microphone is an adapter for the jack that plugs into the headsets themselves."
_
"Turns out the headphones worked perfectly with and without the adapter."
_
"I bought it for use with Sennheiser HD5xx's, note that to use it for these you must perform a hardware modification to the headphones themselves as well as purchase or build an adapter, as the headphones use a 2.5mm port rather than a 3.5mm."
_
"Not really a big deal either - most ppl have a collection of adapters and extensions in a drawer for this and other purposes - but it would've been nice if they'd just made the cord longer."

Audio

Audio:
"Honestly disappointed this did not work on my Mac the audio works but the mike doesnt pick up which is the main reason i went for a split port"
_
"It's a very good solution for the Polk audio gaming headsets which have a horrible built in mic but otherwise perform well."
_
"I'm going to have to buy another one because I like my V-Moda's so much, but overall the solution is not as good as my Audio Technica ATH-AG1 headphones with a rigid microphone."
_
"The sound quality is good enough for voice over IP but not that good for recording some noise free audio of course."
_
"Lots of complaints of me being too quiet or poor audio quality from the folks I called."
_
"The mic works well, no complaints from me, but the audio really isn't great."
_
"The audio quality is great and there is no discernible hissing."
_
"The mic audio is clear and crisp, with no signs of noise from the cord."
_
"I'm glad I came across this gaming headset because I had a perfect set of Audio Technicas that I wasn't using, I didn't want to drop $100+ on a gaming headset."
_
"I've had no issues thus far at the time of the review, and I can happily say the audio technicas sound great as a gaming headset for both audio and mic."
_
"pros:high sensitivitybraided cablegold plated jacksflexible boommid cable volume adjustment and mute switchcons:low quality cable therefor low quality sound COMPARED TO HIGH END AUDIO CABLES ( thin cable with high internal resistance )rather high price for what it isI have this mic plugged into very high quality headphones, I am able to tell the difference in audio ( the sounds im hearing ) when I use this mic and cable vs when I use the cable the headphones came with."

Cable

Cable:
"I was sorely disappointed to find that the original microphone cable would not transmit the sound of my voice, and it felt like i had just wasted a few hundred bucks."
_
"I had Amazon replace it, only to have the exact same problem with the new BoomPro cord."
_
"My package came with a 2.5mm to 3.5mm conversion cord which was extremely useful, but unfortunately misplaced."
_
"I'm not sure if it is the plug that connects into the headset failing or the cable connection on the underside of the mic, all I know is I now lose sound in the head phones unless the cable and pin sit in a very specific position."
_
"The opposite side hears my voice perfectly and this headset has volume control that is missing on the cable that came with the headphones."
_
"The mic works perfectly (solving mic problems I had directly connecting with the stock cable)."
_
"Nice high quality build with braided cable and flexible boom arm."
_
"There is also a volume control on the BoomPro mic cable, as well as a shirt clip to keep it from swinging around."
_
"As for sound quality, this cable seems to be just as good as the original Beats brand cable that came with the headphones themselves."
_
"outcome may vary depending on whatever headphones you're looking to augment with this microphone:)The Y cable that youtube and amazon recommend you purchase alongside this microphone is NOT NECESSARY because it plugs into the xbox controller perfectly even without it."

Clip

Clip:
"I liked having the inline volume and mute controls, although the design of the clip isn't that great IMHO...it is too chunky, and the crocodile clip is a little short, although it is sturdy."
_
"There is a clip on the back for mounting it to your shirt, but it's very rare that I am wearing something I can clip it to, and the clip always seems to be positioned the wrong way."
_
"I find the clip grips fairly well since it has little teeth at the bottom side of the clip and the base that fit together when closed."
_
"There is also a volume control on the BoomPro mic cable, as well as a shirt clip to keep it from swinging around."
_
"The inline volume controls are easy to use and the lapel clip keeps the wire from moving around and becoming annoying."
_
"It's a little on the large side and seems exceptionally solid, the clip is strong and seems as if it will not fall apart anytime soon."
_
"Cable is cloth insulated and the little dongle bit includes a mute switch and volume control as well as a beefy clip."
_

Connector

Connector:
"V-Moda is one of those companies that put a thick strip around the bottom of their jacks, ensuring that their products are incompatible with a sizable block of headphones on the market."
_
"It biggest problem is that it is mounted on a connector that wants to twist, making it easy for the microphone to rotate closer or further from your mouth as you move your head."
_
"There is a little softness in the connector, so at times the boom doesn't sit perfectly."
_
"I had high hopes considering all the positive reviews but was met with several problems upon first getting it to work.1) While the 45 degree jack that goes into the splitter is solid construction and sound, the two cables on the splitter are terribly flimsy and half of the jack feels rubbery and loose, not at all the sort of quality I'd expect from V-Moda.2) The volume on the device was so low I had to boost it in mumble to +40 amplification, make sure it was at 100 recording volume AND boost it to +20db on microphone boost just to get people to hear me properly!"
_
"This thing catches on my sweatshirts and jackets all the time, and it's quite annoying."
_
"When using the microphone with the Y-adapter I had to turn the connector (where the microphone's 4 pole jack meets the adapter) and push on it to be able to receive all of the sound."
_
"Works perfectly with Xbox 1 with the newer controller (with 3.5mm jack)."
_
"It has a 45 degree jack on the end which is also nice."
_
"Other than that it seems like a great product that should work well with any headphone that supports a 3.5mm input jack."
_
"Something else that was recommended to purchase alongside this microphone is an adapter for the jack that plugs into the headsets themselves."

Control

Control:
"I liked having the inline volume and mute controls, although the design of the clip isn't that great IMHO...it is too chunky, and the crocodile clip is a little short, although it is sturdy."
_
"I'm disappointed in the volume control behavior, and it makes me worry that it may have a problem that will cause it to fail early."
_
"The mic mute switch functions, as does the volume control, though the latter has it's problems."
_
"The opposite side hears my voice perfectly and this headset has volume control that is missing on the cable that came with the headphones."
_
"Very durable and quality mic that you can use with any 3.5mm headsets with detachable wires, V-MODA, Beats, Monster, etc.. Only concern is that the mic control is not as durable as the rest of the product but unless your banging it around like a level 711 Knight in Dark Souls, you'll be good."
_
"However, it has lost 1 star for missing call control button to hang up calls as the mic is usually used to make phone calls."
_
"I would still go with Boom pro as this one has convenient wheel volume control on the mic wire, clear voice delivery(this was important to me) and a long enough wire."
_
"There is also a volume control on the BoomPro mic cable, as well as a shirt clip to keep it from swinging around."
_
"Mic sounds perfect and the volume control is a great touch."
_
"The inline volume controls are easy to use and the lapel clip keeps the wire from moving around and becoming annoying."
_
"Everyone says they are having problems with the splitter...not me, I have problems with the mute switch volume control."

Gaming:
"No matter how much research I did, i couldn't in good conscience order a set of expensive gaming headphones when i had perfectly good headphones at home."
_
"If I'm going to be using the BoomPro for any length of time in the future I'll have to tape it in place so it doesn't annoy me the entire time; this inconvenience alone makes me not want to use it for casual gaming as it's an annoying extra step I shouldn't have to take."
