    Bought this one for the price and wasn't expecting the quality I received. The boom mic renders wonderful voice clarity according to my PS4 online friends and team mates and the audio quality of the chat I receive is wonderfully clear. I thought it was a stiff plastic bar, but it's not. It's bendable and positional so you can put the mic where you want it. It CANNOT be used on the right ear, but that hasn't seemed to be a problem. The mute is VERY easy to access and the added volume roller give me that extra boost of sound I need when the environment I'm in gets a little loud. Lastly, it appears to be pretty durable. I'm not the most careful with my headsets and this thing hasn't had a problem yet. I hope I didn't just jinx myself. LOL. HIGHLY recommend this product and would purchase again if needed. You cannot beat the quality for the price. Get yours today.

    Excellent Chat Headset

    Nice and affordable. Was hesitant to purchase at $15 fearing "you get what you pay for", but was pleasantly surprised by it's performance. People can hear me just fine and I can hear them, crisp and clear. It also features an on/off toggle and volume wheel which are useful. Ear cup is comfortable. Wore it about four hours last night and it never bothered my ear at all. It's a nice, cheap upgrade from the dinky little chat wire that comes with the PS4. Only issue worth pointing out is this headset isn't ambidextrous. The mic boom only moves down about 45 degrees which specifically tailors the headset to the left ear. This wasn't a problem for me since I'm used to holding my phone to my left ear anyway. But, if you're more comfortable using your right side, this might be a little awkward.

    Not Great for Loud Gamers

    One of my biggest complaints on my test runs of bargain one-ear headsets is that they are designed for either left or right only, meaning you can't adjust the mic to wear it on your preferred ear. Sadly for me, every one-ear headset I've tried for the PS4 is designed for the left ear, which suffers from partial deafness and has sensitive cartilage. This headset is a tight fit and quickly becomes unbearable to wear, grinding my left ear cartilage against my skull, which is larger than average, but not by much. Audibly, hearing others is fine, the mic has issues though, most notably an inability to handle loud vocals. If you're a loud gamer like me and desire a mic that doesn't send loud static cracks to receivers, then this is not for you. Bulleted Points: -Left-Ear only -Very tight/uncomfortable fit -Decent speaker -Microphone does not handle loud vocals. As far as bargain headsets go, I would not recommend this.

    I was looking for a cheap headset so I can communicate with my friends over psn. The pros of this headset is that it works, has a movable microphone piece, and is adjustable for head sizes. Oh and its cheap! The cons, though, are that it's too cheap. The material is plastic and I can tell it will snap easy if youre not careful with it. Its also not too comfortable. Overall this headset can't be blamed for too much because its $20 and it works really well for what it does, but if I had the chance again I'd probably buy a slightly more expansive set.

    This wired device is well built and of superior quality for the price point. I needed to replace my stock microphone but I just wasn't interested in spending a lot of money on wireless or one of those big named models. I had my doubts about this one in the store but after seeing it out of the box and using it, I was pleasantly surprised about how durable and effective it was. It's comfortable and the sound is good for both the user and receiver. Great buy for those on a budget or for those that have kids who need to replace the stock headset.

    Bargain Buy, Fair Quality

    I purchased this headset mostly to use for online chat on gaming consoles (PS4, PS3, and PC), though I have used this for basic recording of playback audio on PC as well. The sound quality and connect-ability is great (though any aux-plugin should have great connection, ha ha). The only thing that could be better is the padding on the non-speaker/mic side, wearing the headset for over an hour can be uncomfortable, but I have added my own padding to it and it is perfectly fine for the basic functions that I purchased this for.

    -1 star because the headset mic will only sit on your left ear. So if you prefer your right ear, or the ability to switch it up, that’s not an option. -1 star due to the headset being tight fitting, while it is better to have it more tight than loose, a head-width adjustment is a cheap fix and could satisfy more customers. The good: It’s got great quality sound, adjustable volume, and flexible microphone. Overall, I would recommend this product. It’s affordable and worth the money.

    I wanted a cheap one ear headset so I can still listen to my sound system while playing and these get the job done for a cheap price. If you are looking for a cheap headset that works well than this is for you. Comfort level is minimal and they get annoying if you wear for over 2 hours but I don’t mind too much. Mic is good, better than I was heard before... people noticed when I bought it and they obviously can’t see it. Sound quality is good and I like how easy it is to mute and increase volume quickly.
