Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"They are SO damn comfortable that I may have to but I'm worried that the mic will be absolute garbage."
_
"I like the fact that the A50 feels more sturdy and durable very comfortable in my head it doesn't fall and has a very good range of adjustment even tried it on my children and fit fine."
_
"Comfort: In general these are very comfortable."
_
"Sound quality is really good and the headset is comfortable but that's about it."
_
"PROS:* Extremely comfortable* Good battery life (6-8 hours on average at a slightly-below-movie-theater volume)* Good sound quality* Well thought-out controls (mostly)* Handy display stand* Good surround sound for headphones* Good build quality* Looks dang good for a gaming headsetCONS:* Only way to mute it is to flip the mic up, which everyone can hear unless you're careful* No microphone gain control* Frequent echoes, though I can't be sure that's the headset's fault (and yes, I do have my stereo muted)* Tedious to switch between multiple consoles* Painfully loud static spitting noise when Xbox controller has wireless interference* Headset stand should provide contact charging rather than requiring a micro USB cable* Does not provide any Audio options in controller's device settings on Xbox like some other headsets do"

Microphone

Microphone:
"They are SO damn comfortable that I may have to but I'm worried that the mic will be absolute garbage."
_
"Only complaint is the fact that the mic makes your voice a little tinny."
_
"I've also had several of my friends complain that my chat is rather quiet, and other than putting the mic closer to my mouth (and it was already like 2 inches directly in front of my mouth) there was nothing I could do about it."
_
"The lack of manual microphone sensitivity control is annoying."
_
"great headset with out the neck pain but there are flaws the Mic is horrible."
_
"But I gave 1 star because the mic quality is horrible because all the AG1 cables are faulty."
_
"They are SO damn comfortable that I may have to but I'm worried that the mic will be absolute garbage."
_
"I returned these and kept my turtle beach stealth 500x that are totally wireless, lasts 14 hours of game play between charges and has a excellent mic"
_
"The mute is pretty easy to figure out (just flip the mic up until it's parallel to the headband) but it can take a couple of seconds, and requires letting go of your controller with one hand."
_
"great headset with out the neck pain but there are flaws the Mic is horrible."
_
"The mic is pretty decent iv only had like one person say I sound low the rest say I'm fine."

Quality

Quality:
"However, the surround sound makes up for the mediocre sound quality."
_
"I think that could help make up for the mediocre sound quality."
_
"They look awesome and the sound quality was good but there is some glitch with the battery that apparently is well documented online with no permanent solution."
_
"But I gave 1 star because the mic quality is horrible because all the AG1 cables are faulty."
_
"The chat sound quality is trash and people say they had a hard to hearing me."
_
"Build quality is excellent and the same as the A40, but the ear cups are much larger and stiffer than the A40s making them ill fitting and uncomfortable to wear extended periods."
_
"In the end, sound quality and comfort beat out convenience over the wireless (of which you don't actually have anyway)PS: Customer service is SLOW to respond."
_
"Sound quality is fantastic, directional audio is top."
_
"Sound quality is really good and the headset is comfortable but that's about it."
_
"The sound quality is good for a gaming headset, but it's not going to beat a pair of Sennheisers for the same price."

"Amazing headset for the Xbox One."
_
"It was perfect for the Xbox 360 but it is AWFUL for the Xbox One."
_
"Quick Note: I got the Xbox version because I wanted to be able to use it with my Xbox and PS4 both, and though the two models are exactly the same, with exactly the same price, only the Xbox version comes with the required controller-to-headset cable that Xbox chat requires."
