Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality and price Wanting a cheaper but high quality headset for my PC, I felt that this one was the best looking and had the best reviews. The price is reasonable, compared to many other models, and the sound quality is pretty good. The headphones are very good at blocking out external noises and make the gaming/listening/watching experience even more immersive. The fit is comfortable and adjustable, and my slightly large ears fit fairly well. The microphone is not professional (understandably), but is sufficient for speech recording and calls. Different designs/colours would be nice. Overall this headset fit my budget and looks good too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones These are some great headphones. Mean I can play xbox with the TV sound off but still hear the important stuff (the game!). Sound is in stereo too, so you can actually hear which direction shots / people are coming from (I play a lot of BF1). The mic is fine too, with adjustable position with the bendy stick. Comfortable enough to wear for an hour or two and nice green and black combo. Pricey, but good.

Hi, can you hear game and chat audio through this headset at the same time? All answers gratefully received. Thanks.
