Rated 1 out of 5 by Jack4000 Cannot recommend
Bought one of these to as I was after a good value headset.
Couldn't have been more disappointed. The sound quality was terrible as there was a constant electronic static coming through the earpieces, other players on Teamspeak also reported the same noise through the microphone.
I don't know if I've got a small head, but the fit was terrible with only the upper half of the earcups even touching.
If you've got a large head and don't mind having a constant beeping hiss coming through your ears and microphone and want to spend as little as possible, then great!
If you don't, then spend some extra money and buy a decent brand like Plantronics or Logitech.
I returned the product to the store today and spent some extra money buying the Thermaltake Shock Gaming Headset (LN40598). Not had chance to try them out yet, but the build quality and packaging are far superior at least.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Farden Great.... If it works
My company bought 2 of these to try them out and they were great, the sound was suprisingly good for the price and the microphone, albeit a little crackly was largely quite good, we needed them so staff could work from home in bad weather/poor health etc so we didnt want to spend out on the expensive ones we use inside the office so we went ahead and bought 30 of them, the first 4 that came out the box didnt work, the next 5 did and then the next 3 were broken (ranging from only one 'ear' working, to sound being crackled or distorted or the Mic not working.
Basically, if it works, theyre great. I actually still use one of the original 2 we bought, however the other 30 have been returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Valvelifter Good product but channels reversed
This headset is very comfortable to wear and the headphones eliminate most of the ambient sound.
I am using this on a Linux Ubuntu 12.04 system and I had to download an update from the PPA (Personal Package Archive) to get the system to recognise them:
In a terminal window run;
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y
You can then select them in the sound section of system settings.
The microphone is quite sensitive and does not need the input volume cranking up to get a decent level.
The only downside is that the channels seem to be reversed and as yet, I have not found a solution to this. For my own purposes, this is unimportant but some might find it irritating.
Overall I am please with this product.
