Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Microphone

Microphone:
"Unlike most earbud headsets that have an in-line microphone that I have to hold inches from my face and still have problems with background noise."
_
"They look good, fit good and seemed like decent construction, but the sound was not very good and neither was the mic."
_
"The mic DOES NOT fit into the nice case that comes with this item."
_
"A couple of weeks later, the microphone piece itself broke and is now hanging loosely by the wire - I expect it to stop working entirely shortly."
_
"The idea of sound insulation really does not go very well with a microphone."
_
"The microphone is great."
_
"For $14.50 it's a so so deal; I'm giving this one away at a holiday grab bag event for kids (let them use it for gaming), and will use as my primary headset my recently purchased Klipsch Image S2m Noise-Isolating Headset with Microphone and Single-Button Control which has been working rather well -- after I discovered this: BE AWARE, the Klipsch has a single 3.5mm plug, which works with many mobile phones (and very recent Macbooks) but NOT with a typical PC, for which YOU NEED EITHER an adapter to dual 3.5mm plugs (speaker + mic) for the usual analog sound card Headset Buddy Adapter: Smartphone Headset to PC Adapter - Use a 3.5mm iPhone Smartphone Headset With Your PC, Converts 3.5mm Plug to Dual Mic Audio 3.5mm, for Skype VOIP or to USB USB 2.0 to 3.5mm Female Audio Stereo Microphone Adapter."

"So you can get on with you shopping here are the pro's and con's based on my 1 week experience with this headset (which lasted only 1 week before the microphone literally came apart):Pro's: Excellent sound and mic quality."
_
"The foam earbuds work best for me and the microphone is very lightweight and better than inline mics and does a better job of extraneous noise reduction than inline mics."
