Hi guys,

I am looking for some headphones, and I came across these which seem to be pretty well recommended by review sites. No one said anything about long term use though, so I was wondering if anyone out there with these has any info on them?

going to be used for gaming mostly, then music. just looking for a sweet headset that isn't going to break the bank.

Cheers!

I've had mine for just over a year now, they're going really great I have to say. Only thing that bothers me is when I increase or decrease the volume, it cackles a little, but that might be my sound card.

Mine crackle too when i change volume with its in line volume controller, but I dont do that often. For games they are great, really good spatial accuracy. Music sounds a bit harsh, but to each his own.

Very comfy, good audio quality although music playback is less than perfect.

Great headphones, but like the others have said they lack midbass when playing music.
I have had mine for just over a year, and they go to every lan with me.

Worst Headphones I've ever heard over $50 for music!

Personally I'd avoid them at all costs if I was even listening to music 10% of the time.

You can fiddle with a sound card's mixer settings to account for the lacklustre music playback. If you listen to music all the time though, I'd look elsewhere for headphones.
