Cable

Cable:
"The problem with this device is I was expecting for it to have only 1 cable to plug into my computer, and it did not isolated the environment sounds, I guess it is not compatible with my laptop"
_
"The only reason why I need a replacement is because the casing on the cord broke, exposing the internal wiring and the sound quality is beginning to be affected."
_
"The only complaint I have is that the cord is shorter than I expected."
_
"Was the connecting wire more durable I would unquestionably rate this headset with five stars but the flimsy cord downgraded it to only two or three stars."
_
"However, having cord damage is the reason I bought a new headset in the first place."
_
"Her unit, though, has developed a nasty connection problem, related to the cord."
_
"mic is good too and it has a very long cable to it."
_
"I don't think it broke because of use though, I'm pretty sure I just got careless with them and ran over the cord with my chair."
_
"They are comfortable, I like the design, I like the cables."
_
"Ease of use- The seven foot cord is really nice, but it always could be longer, or even wireless."
_
"If I was going to use it on the PC it would be great although the cord is a bit short."

_
"I was told they changed these and are not as comfortable or as good sounding as they used to be (same model, same brand)."
_
"it is built nice and sturdy comfortable .Have had a lot of problems with it cutting out , cold be me using wire less or the set could be bad won't know until I try a direct connection with the head set"
_
"I've tried using this with my LG Ally phone and everyone complains they cannot hear me......headset is comfortable and I hear others but if people can't hear me, they are useless."
_
"The only small problem is that it's not very comfortable."
_
"While not the most comfortable of headsets these are without a doubt a very nice set if you use them regularly."

Design

Design:
"Unfortunately, the 10 that I ordered ended up being a different design (same make model)."
_
"The on the ear design is not the most comfortable, my earlier headset with over the ear design was much more comfortable."
_
"There are good reasons to choose such a design, but it is hard to make such headphones comfortable, and we found this product to be only wearable for a half-hour or hour at a time, at most."
_
"Of the 100 respondents to our survey (50% response rate) 14% report broken headsets (design and build quality), and 12% report poor performance."
_
"Sturdy design, easy to install, and to work with, no software required since it conects to the mic and speakers plugs, sound is pretty clear ! "
_
"They are comfortable, I like the design, I like the cables."
_
"the ambidextrous design is pretty dandy, those of you who are, for example, used to the xbox headsets that have mic on the right side will be able to do so."
_
"Design is pretty good, you can adjust the microphone , twist and turn .Only issue I found that , it fits with my head very tightly."
_
"The design is beautiful, it's comfortable, unexpensive and does the job well."

"Instead, it not only works, but works well, with headphone quality so good that I just use it when I'm listening to music while working, rather than ever bothering to switch to a more audiophile option."
