broke within few months
Used it for a few months before one side of the headphones stopped working completely. The mic also stopped working and is very prone to build up dust. Build quality is good thought and the price is worth, if it doesn't break within few months of using like mine did.
Purchased in March 2017 at centrecom for $120.00.
Not bad, but not worth the price
The headset was one of the best selling so-called "gaming" headsets over the last few years. For the price of $120-140 it is definitely not worth it. For that, you could purchase a much better pair of headphones, such as an audio-technica, and purchase a separate microphone (either desktop mic or mod mic) and enjoy a much better audio experience.
-Great noise cancellation (particularly with the leather ear pads)
-Comfortable and can be worn for long stretches at a time without any issues
-Detachable microphone, but personally I pre...
Comfortable but far from perfect
These headphones feel great, look good and have a great rope like cord that doesnt get tangled up but suffers some audio issues.
Unfortunately the sound card is located midway along the cord and is prone to damage from computer chairs and feet as it is usually on the ground. It also unplugs at this point easily leading to audio loss. Even when brand new audio through the usb connection is often poor and the sound driver can get quite hot.

Good sound quality but some bugs
Great quality headphones for the price - good sound cancelation, loud, good surround emulation.
The microphone runs terribly when the device is connected via USB. I found the only way to get it working is using the analog 3.5mm jack into my PC directly, by taking off the USB attachment.
Otherwise my voice comes through muffled and as if I'm a hundred metres away.
Minimum volume is way too LOUD! USB Dongle broke after 21 months
Even at volume 2/100, the volume is way too loud. The USB dongle malfunctioned after less than 2 years. For a headphone you should expect 5 years of good function. Surround function adds a lot of extra 'noise' which impacts sound quality. I will not buy Kingston again. Comfort is good though.
