Cable

Cable:
"My sons only complaint was no mute switch on the cord."
_
"The cord length is very long and this can be both a positive and a negative depending on your desired use."
_
"First off, the volume is located on the actual headphones, which is a huge plus to the location that some headphones put volume control (on the cord at some place - hard to locate at times)."
_
"The audio cable is shielded in fabric instead of rubber, which is a smart idea; I feel like it is less prone to breaking where the cable meets the earpiece; a weak spot that plagues many headsets today."
_
"I didn't bother to check the mic, as it appeared to have a damaged cord (based on the phones sound quality)."
_
"works well and has very strong construction an cables... good sound and mic works with good fidelity"
_
"Pros: adjustable size for all forms of wearing and plenty of cord length and very easy to use with simple technical features and great sound transference."

_
"Prior to having this I would have rated microphone headphones in general very lowly as I found them uncomfortable and very bad at being used with anything other than a grounded computer with software, but these are so comfortable and user friendly."
