Don't get me wrong, this is a good headset, especially for the price. Its got amazing base, and decent overall sound quality. Its comfortable over a long period and does not get overly hot. The build is fine, and the cable is the same. However the microphone is absolutely terrible. When it does work, it has noise cancellation issues, volume issues and is overall unreliable. This mic will not work 20% of the time. It will either refuse to communicate any sound at all, make a static whiney noises, or earrape to the point of ear damage. Overall, the sound is nice but if you are serious about games and want to communicate with your team, this may not be the right choice.
