Very easy to use.
The sound is spectacular.
Made by a company that takes satisfaction seriously.
Keeps out a surprising amount of background noise.
Balanced sound for music, games or VoIP.
High price point for average gamers.
Mics are highly sensitive.
Could be a longevity issue to the boom mic jack.
Does not have gold-plated connectors.
Inline controls are limited in utility and confusing to use.
Headset is on the bulky side, especially for street wear.
Can be tiring to wear for more than an hour.
