Got a pair of these about a month back. I'm no audiophile, but the sound quality is fine to me. At least one friend has told me that I sound good over Discord (and I was specifically interested in this headset's mic quality after reading the reviews on rtings.com). Can be used with USB or 3.5 mm (4-pole connector - adapter is included for systems with separate headphone and mic ports). Cable length is generous (10 ft I believe). Can also be used via bluetooth for supported devices, though when using for 2-way communication (headphones and mic) audio quality suffers due to bluetooth bandwidth limitations (as I understand it). If only using for headphone purposes, audio quality is comparable to a wired connection. I haven't noticed significant latency issues.

The single button for pairing to bluetooth can also be used to control media. A single press will play/pause and answer/end call. A double press will skip to the next track. There is a mute button on the left cup. It sticks out when not muted and is slightly depressed when muted. Unlike some of the other arctis headsets, there is no LED indicator light on the microphone to indicate when you are muted.

The boom microphone is retractable, though it can be difficult to push it back into the cup with one hand without the headset wiggling on your head - depends on how snug a fit you have. While there is noticeable pressure on my head, they don't feel overly snug. If I shake my head, they will slide around a bit, but usually not enough to fall off unless I jerk my head quickly.

There is also a volume wheel on the back of the left cup. I don't personally care for it, as I use the thumbwheel on my MX Master to control volume, and the wheel on the cup doesn't have a lot of resistance (it moves at the slightest touch). The volume it controls is separate from your system's volume, which can be annoying rather than having a single volume control.

I like that these are dual channel so I can play a game and listen to a podcast or music simultaneously, and take calls with it. Great for multitasking.

These were a Godsend after my ACL surgery.

I bought the Arctis Pro when they were on sale last time and I will say that the the sound quality isn't that bad, but the one thing I will warn people about is the headband. The headband is just awful imo, I am constantly moving it all over my head because it hurts after about 30 minutes. No matter where I position it on my head it leaves a red mark that leaves my head sore. After a few hours of gaming there is a red streak down my head due to all the times I had to reposition it. I would definitely be weary of this headset.

Just curious, have you used these before? Want to make sure to understand why hyperx is better.

Edit: tons of negative reviews on Amazon. Not gonna bother gambling on this.

We have these headphones and I can confirm they are good. But we got them for $35 from GameStop during Black Friday 2018.

I don't think these headphones are worth $64, and unless someone needs them soon I recommend waiting until a better deal comes up.

I have the wireless ones. Used them heavily for 4 years. Great for gaming and can handle abuse. Have worn them for 7 hours straight and no discomfort. And I have a large head.

Why are all gaming accessories marked up a ridiculous amount? You know it's high profit garbage when GameStop gets into selling it in a big way.

This seems like a decent price but I recently bought some philips 9500 for 50 bucks.

The sound quality on these is terrible. There's no bass at all. Not for music. I returned mine. Theyre super comfortable though.
