Lighter weight, softer breathable cushions provide significantly longer wear times. i find myself reaching for these during long usage sessions.
I find that the sound profile is noticably less dynamic and less detailed than my Audio Technica M50's as should be expected. That is not to say that these are flat or unresponsive, these are clearly designed for .... Neutral extended use. I do not get ear fatigue with them so readily as I do other earphones. fairly flat, and not bass heavy... perhaps bass light at times. Since these are for gaming I thought explosions were in order. Telarks Version of Tchakivskys 18th overature as my refrence, I was pleased. These headphones did not distort when listen at full volume on a Note 3 or a PC sound card. The lack of dynamic range was only moderately evident in this listening scenario.
When listening to other more musical sources, I frequently found myself looking for more warmth as these sounded a bit sterile compared to a dedicated set of studio grade headphones.
I doubt very many video game players will object to the sound quality. While gaming, I found the sound profile to be quite adequate. There is sufficient detail to clearly make out directional information, voice chat from other players was particularly good with these.
Given their intended use, I would declare the audio performance adequate. The sound profile seems to be geared towards clear dialog over musical performance which seems quite fitting.
Microphone: Yea they heard me. No issues. I thought it was busted at first, but as it turns out, i was talking into the noise cancelling part and not the microphone so it was really muted. I think that is to say the noise cancellation works great, but does subject the user to potential failure if he/she is unaware.
Simple, and durable. I'm fairly confident that these would hold up to the sit on test, but Im not going to try :) The parts snap apart and easily back together when stressed. A rather elegant design IMO. Not quite flimsy, and not brittle. Great for careless kids.
As a parent I like these better for my kids ears as they arent excessively too loud and are durable. I think plantronics has hit the sweet spot with these.
