If you need a real headset get this one I am very impressed. Anyone who says this headset is no good will never be satisfied with any headset as this thing performs well in all settings.
The audio quality is very good--once you get the mic positioned optimally and make a few adjustments to your sound card settings (I'm still using XP on my work computer). This is designed as a close mic, so the sound quality drops quite a bit as you get a half-inch or so away from optimal distance. But I'm pleased overall with the way my voice sounds in voice-over types of projects-- clear, distinct, just a tad sibilant when the audio gets compressed in some applications.
The headband is cheap plastic, and uncomfortable, but with some stretching and positioning slightly in front of my ears, rather than directly on them, I soon forget I'm wearing a headset once I get started on a project. I don't use the headphones at all--they didn't sound very good to me, and I really didn't work with them much--I prefer to listen back to what I've recorded through my studio speakers. But I bought this for the mic quality and convenience of having a headset as opposed to a boom mic, which I was using previously.
I'll probably switch back and forth between using this and the Blue Yeti USB mic when it arrives. (Review soon.)
I can't comment on longevity, as I've only had this a few days, but I've already logged quite a few hours. Overall, the sound quality is pretty much what I expected after reading reviews.
I do a weekly podcast, so the quality of sound through my headset matters a lot. I purchased this one after seeing it rated #1 on a headset comparison in 2016. I have been amazed at the quality of sound through this little headset for this price.
My I.T. Manager said recently that the sound quality on my podcasts was really good and he asked me what I was using. He was also amazed.
I cannot recommend this great little headset highly enough!
