If you have a teeny pinhead & never ever move while you are using them.. you would be ok.
It fits comfortably, and I have a big melon. I have no complaints from others on the quality of the voice transmission.
The only things this is lacking in is some of the higher level multi channel audio that you see in higher priced alternatives. It does get hard to hear if you are keeping both communication and game audio coming through the headset. I recommend a set of speakers also for game audio. Also the mic may be almost too sensitive. It can pick up a little too much background or ambient noise which can make it annoying for the people you are playing with.
After getting them I'm very happy with them and so is he. Sound clarity and quality is amazing no issues with it. The mic works amazingly and no one has an issue hearing him on any of the applications he uses including discord.
Overall comfort of them is awesome. He likes headsets that surround his ears rather than pushing on them. So he loves the feel of these.
The noise cancellation on them is def a 9/10 if not 10/10. He can def not hear me when he is playing games and listening to music.
Overall I would have to recommend this product.
On the plus side of things: They're inexpensive, they are comfortable, they actually seem quite tough, and the leatherette/foam seems to do a good job at passive sound-blocking. I also prefer the pure USB rather than the USB/3.5mm dongle that most wired headsets use.
My problem is, I want to use them for Skype -and- listening to music, but to me they make my music sound so horrible I probably will just use them as a backup or give them to someone else in the office.
Top international reviews
I bought and used a high end 'gaming' headset from a much more expensive brand. and difference was amazing. Far better.
Then, after about 18 months, the microphone stopped working. Not wishing to pay another £100+, I looked for a good value USB headset for telephony. Decided to give this headset a try, as the reviews are good and the price low.
Received it today and the sound quality (mic and ear speakers) was pretty much as good as the £100+ headset that had failed.
Slightly annoyed that I did not buy these in the first place, but ecstatic that I now have a headset that (in a call centre environment) rivals the more expensive.
Good sound insulation on the ears means I hear the client better. The mic seems good when I record and play back to myself as a test.
They even look kinda cool. Speaking of which, our office is not overly warm and I suffer no discomfort wearing this headset for hours. In hot weather, all headsets can be a bit more uncomfortable.
I have been working in call centre for about 20 years now and this headset is outstanding value. Far better than major brands selling cheaply and almost as good as the top brands.
If you are looking for a good quality headset at a low price... this is it. I commend Amazon for including it in their 'Basics' range. IMHO, this is outstanding value.
As I have only used the headset for one day, the only issue may be longevity: but if a 'top brand' headset can fail after only 18 months then I will be happy if this headset lasts as long.
If you are an audiophile you will probably find the audio not brilliant for listening to music. Compared to my most expensive headphones, it doesn't match. However, for voice messaging, the headphones and mic are very good.
The padding is comfortable and I've worn them for hours at a time without any discomfort.
The build quality is good too. The headset is light but feels quite strong. It may not be the most durable build based on the price but if you don't throw them against a wall I don't expect any problems. The cable look solidly attached to the ear phones and the cable itself - not solid plastic but a kind of thick interwoven fibre material - is flexible and feels like it won't wear out too quickly and could handle a lot of bending.
It also worked out of the box on Ubuntu 18.04 and Windows 10 with the device being recognised by name by both systems with audio levels fully configurable. This was very important to me.
Absolutely no problems at all so far.
Very good fit for my largish adult head, and the band adjusts for the kids when they want to use it.
Braided cable which feels like good quality, and should last longer than average.
Mic boom moves out of the way when you don't need it.
And there's an inline remote which changes the volume easily - it tells your PC to adjust it's volume.
All in all, very happy with this purchase.
soft padding on each ear, and in line volume controls.
I guess you get what you pay for.
