Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"Because of the amplification, there is a slight hiss in the audio; although, it would be very hard to notice it during a game."
_
"Pros:Good audio qualityNo batteries requiredCons:Terrible build qualityNo mic monitorNo swivel mic"
_
"That feature just added buzz and hum so at this point, I prefer what these headphones do because there is no hum or buzz, the audio is fantastic."
_
"Other players report crystal clear audio, with no background noise and hardly any instances of unintended voice input (i. e. game sounds, music blaring in the background).Cons:- Since it's a wired USB-powered headset, that means that there is a constant low-level hiss."
_
"After hooking them up, I was pleased to be experiencing enhanced audio for my online gaming for the first time."
_
"The audio quality is decent for an analog stereo headset, there's minor white noise produced from the analog setup but nothing unbearable."
_
"Pros:Good audio qualityNo batteries requiredCons:Terrible build qualityNo mic monitorNo swivel mic"

Cable

Cable:
"Sometimes, my headphones make this loud, annoying buzzing sound that can easily be fixed by adjusting the cable but it does get somewhat annoying and that is why this only deserves a 4 star."
_
"The second problem is that the cable that connects from the headset's little base to go out to your 360 controller had to be replaced after about 5 months."
_
"For a while it worked for me sounded great until a couple of weeks later the cable that connected the puck to the Xbox360 controller broke."
_
"After one week, this broke, exposing the cables."
_
"I love the headset, but i've had it for like, 2 months now and was just now able to use it properly because i use an HDMI cord for my PS3 and even if you use an HDMI cable you still have to have an Audio Video (red,white,&yellow;) cord if you want to hear the actual game through the headset and not just the other people talkin'."
_
"Sometimes, my headphones make this loud, annoying buzzing sound that can easily be fixed by adjusting the cable but it does get somewhat annoying and that is why this only deserves a 4 star."
_
"Also, the amount of cables that comes with this headset is really amazing - they're trying to be the everything headset for sure, but I think it sacrificed some of the simplicity of using their inline controller."
_
"I did test out the headset with the analog jacks (since the inline controller breaks away and you can plug them in with standard 3.5mm cables), and the mic headphones are pretty decent."
_
"If I were to buy a new headset, I would get something more comfortable, wireless (omg so much cable!"

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Compared to similarly priced competitors, the AX 180 offers more flexibility, comfort, and stylish design, albeit missing a key feature that others now offer (voice playback)."
_
"However, in July the piece that connects to the adjustable comfort band top to the actual earpiece broke."
_
"I bought these about a month ago and everything seemed ok. Sound, comfort, mic - all ok. Then the ear part (can) broke off right where it connects to the headband."
_
"Looks and works great and very comfortable too, after wearing it for a period of time still feels great, I'm pleased with it."
_
"This headset is very comfortable and good looking though, I guess I am going to have to retun it though."
_
"The sound is great and is very comfortable."
_
"I use it primarily for PS3, especially Call of Duty, and I hear everything, they're comfortable, and the mic works well."
_
"Comfort wise, the headset feels nice on my ears and the top of my head, extended use can cause a little bit of an ear ache, but than again this headset is not for the serious gamers who play six hours at a time, if you like to play an hour or two at a time this is the head set for you; otherwise check out the Astro A40's."

_
"These fit perfect."
_
"The headphones fit great and adjust well."
_
"The Headset fits very comfortably on my head, and adjusts easily, but judging by other reviews i recommend keeping the headset at the same adjustment AT ALL TIMES, AND AVOID REPEADETLY TAKING THE HEADSET OFF AND ON, from what i have read this is a very fragile and poorly constructed headset, however, i have not had any problems with it yet, but im not taking any risks, so when i am done using the headset i carefully remove the headset and place it on my desk, i dont bother adjusting it or twisting the ear phones."
