1. Plug and Playability: Perfect. I have 5 windows 10 computers in my family and 1 win 8.1 (test purposes only). I just plugged it in and windows found the drivers and poof it worked perfectly.
2. Sound: Freaking great!! Even my nearly deaf father could hear clearly. There is a slight change from the high bass sound and the high vocal switch but nothing I would brag about. What’s nice is I can hear people talking fairly clearly with the headphones on but it dampens the background noises nicely.
3. Comfort: I have earrings and wear glasses. I would suggest taking out the earrings due to irritation after a few hrs. though. Wearing glasses is no problem at all after you get used to the tighter fit (it is nice to have the weight off the bridge of my nose). As with all headphones prolonged exposure causes sweating but with the cloth earpiece that allows breathing so this increases the time I can have them on (about 3 hrs. at a time).
4. Mic: This one I am not to sure about as I don’t use this very much. The volume that is for the mic/chat is fantastic for filtering between the two and the mic is adjustable just a very stiff adjustment. And since it is detachable that is a big plus in my book.
5. Additional features: The glowing led around the earpieces can change colors. I had to download the user manual from the website and even then it was poorly written. Just press and hold the Mode button and the LED will change colors and even shut off if you don’t want the glow.
1. There is connectivity issues if you plug in the receiver into the USB ports in the back. To resolve this use the Side USB on the Xbox and front USB in PC’s if you can. Once I did this no more problems.
2. for me the ear pieces are ALMOST large enough to cover my whole ear (reason to take out earrings). The length could be maybe an inch longer in the adjustment.
3. PISS POOR USER MANUAL … do companies not know how to put out instructions on how to use their products any more?
All in all the best product for wireless I have seen in many years that are under $100. Comfortable, well made, versatile, long battery life (about 15hrs of continuous playing), and great sound. A great product for any home.
