I have a big head and I need to wear headphones all day for work then after work for gaming. So it's important they are comfortable and don't squeeze my head too tight and give me a headache. These are great, they feel like they are floating around my head. Unfortunately I suffered they same problem with microphone volume that most people suffer from too. It's pretty easy to fix though, I just downloaded the free software 'EqualizerAPO' and once you set that up once with adding about 10dB volume to the micrphone it just runs hidden in the background all the time. Having a mute button on the headset is really handy with also a red light mute indicator on the tip of the microphone.
