General Thoughts:

When I first put these on, I didn’t actually like the sound. It was so different to what I was used to, but I put in a few days in some games and listened to a lot of music, then I switched back to a normal set of headphones… and amazingly, all the other headsets sounded dirty, sharp, awful. Sound is very subjective and we can get used to a lot of different types, but I think if we get used to these, we’ll end up appreciating them more than others. I had to return them, as they were demo only, but I think a headset like this is one I actually need.

The design is a bit strange, not sure I like this versatile headband thing, and I prefer retractable mics with more filters, but more importantly, the sound is great, so I want them. Hopefully I can find a similar sound in a different design! Until then, I’m going to try to acquire a set of these.
