      I use this product often for gaming and calls and its ease of use to include a quick mute button when I'm laughing deviously at the plight of my team. The cable wasn't as long as my previous version and the foam ear pieces aren't as comfortable as the last set, but that's nit-picking. The quality of the call throught he headset's good 'nuff for me! I've bought from this company before and they've never failed me.

      I've had to go through two of these lifechat headset in the past year both only lasted for about 4-6 months then they start to short out and literally fall apart. They have cool sound and great noise cancelling but they really don't last long I guess that is why they are cheap. After about 2 months the cord starts to curl up upon itself and that seems to lead to it eventually shorting out also the material they use for the ear pieces falls off after a while.

          First headphones received did not work properly. The mute button was stuck in "mute." As soon as I complained in a review, B&H went into action and shipped a second set to me free of charge. I am happy to report that the new ones are working to perfection and I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.

              I purchased this to conduct online meetings and conferencing. It has worked well so far. It was easy to setup, just plugged it into the USB.

              It is marketed for use with Skype and other Microsoft conferencing platforms, but it will work other systems.

                    I bought this headset for Skype. It works well, the ear cups are comfortable, although are on the smaller side. In-line sound regulation is convenient. Sound is clear and people at the other end hear me well. The plastic head band is tight and will likely cause discomfort after some time. Overall as expected.

                        Good Sound Quality. Have not yet tested the Microphone.
                        This being a USB connected Headset, it is difficult to toggle between Headset and Computer Speaker ( 4 Clicks - to change Playback default. That is a minor inconvenience, that brings the rating down to 4.
                        Otherwise a good value headset with quality sound.

                            Using this set for an online "virtual classroom" training session. I hear the others very well, and have been told that my voice is coming through clear, also. Does a great job of external sound suppression, but not total.

                              Many of us share offices here and we needed a headset solution that would allow us to participate in audio conferences without interruption by each other speaking in the background. These headsets were recommended by B&H sales and they are the perfect solution for what we needed. As a bonus, they were on sale when we bought them so the total price was right within our non-profit budget.

                                  I purchased these headphones to use with Rosetta Stone. The microphone is very responsive; I haven't had any issues with it picking me up talking in a normal volume. Very satisfied and they work great for learning a new language!

                                        SirsI am an old speaker designer. BSEE Retired. I like it, bass is not over powering, and overall sound seem well balanced on John Barry's music scores. I am a classical music buff. Very good for the price.

                                            These headphones have excellent sound. I like that they cover my ears to keep out other sounds. The microphone too is great.

                                              This is a USB mode headset.

                                              It has a unsual way of configuration because with the USB interface, the computer doesn't not identify it as a audio device, but the sound quality is pretty good and the price is ok.
