For the price these AW80’s can not be beat. They fit comfortably around my ears and offer great noise reduction to outside sounds. The mic pics up very well and I really like that it tucks away and wont be broken off when not in use. I also love that there is no in-line audio controls. Having them on the headset is much more comfortable and this way you don’t have something bouncing around your collarbone area while you are playing. The color changing on the headset is pretty neat and I wish that I could control the colors. Like make it stay one color or choose to eliminate certain colors from the spectrum would be great. Then again, I do appreciate a legit pair of plug and play that does not require you to install software for it to work.
Even though they are not 7.1 they still deliver great sound. The last pair I had was over $80 and lasted about 2 years before a headset became defective. I am currently swearing off high dollar head sets and this is my first trip back in to the budget zone and I am not disappointed. Day 1 i wore them in a about a 6 hour gaming stretch and they did not cause my ears, jaw or head to hurt. They are extremely comfortable.-D@F@DooD
