This review may help some prospective buyers understand some of the upsides and downsides of this unit.
- This headset is very inexpensive compared to others on the market, so it doesn’t beat up your wallet badly.
- When used with my laptop computer, it works great: the sound from the headphones is quite good compared to a landline and sometimes better/worse than a cell phone connection, which often depends on the cell system and setup.
- If you have a single connector coming out of your computer, cell phone, tablet or whatever device you’re going to be using the headset with, it’s just fine.
- The connectors all have reasonable-looking stress reliefs on the cables, so they shouldn’t be too fragile.

- When used with my cell phone — an LG Tracfone, admittedly not particularly high end, but perfectly functional for day-to-day use — the sound from the headphones was good, but people who I talked to said that my voice sounded very tinny, similar to what you’d expect in a military aircraft or vehicle intercom – probably an impedance or preamp issue between the phone circuit and the microphone in the headset.
- If you were playing video games and/or demand super sound performance, these are definitely not for you — they’re inexpensive, functional headphones, not a set of Bose or Sennheiser wonderphones.
- If you have a double connector coming out of your computer, cell phone, tablet or whatever device you’re going to be using the headset with, you’ll have to use the included cable splitter — not a big deal, since it comes with the headset and it’s free, but it’s another thing to clutter up your workspace.
Testing For Cyber Acoustics
I’ve only been using the headset for a few days, and essentially all my usage has been for Skype phone calls with my Lenovo laptop. I purchased a right angle cable extender (with 8″ cable) to allow me to plug in/out the headset without overworking the 3.5 mm single connector on my laptop.
I figured it would be a lot less hassle in the event of a future busted jack to replace the extender than it would be to deal with a broken connector on the motherboard, which can happen if you plug in/out more than a few thousand times.
Overall, it seems like a very good buy — now we’ll have to see how long the headset lasts under the few-times daily use that I’ll put it to.
