Pros Pretty good build quality Comfortable Long cord if you are going to be around the room
Cons Non-flexible mic so sometimes you can't get it quite close enough
Summary I would highly recommend these when they are on sale, thats when its definitely worth the buy. They are comfortable enough that you can wear them for hours without any discomfort. They are loud enough to hear anything you need but if you like your music cranked up loud I don't think it would work good for that. Good mic quality as well!
Pros Quality of sound, feel, cord length (10 feet), and adjustable microphone boom. Fits my head!
Cons Microphone boom not very long and plug in cable very thin.
Summary When I first opened the package for the PC151 I thought to myself wow, I am going to look like a pilot. So, to the point, who cares what you look like wearing it? I bought it for gaming.
When I tried it on for the first time I instantly thought I purchased the wrong headset, it was very tight and small on my head. I am not going to say I have a large head but it's bigger. After gaming with the headset for a couple of minutes it molded to my head and I no longer had the too small feel. It actually fits like a glove now.
Sound clarity is very nice. The bass is deep and non distorted. It feels like it's missing a mid punch on bass, but I am gaming not listening to music. While listening to music the headset goes loud but if I were someone of a younger age I would want it louder for sure.
As a flaw, the plug in coord is very thin I can see myself eventually running it over with my chair and having to McGyver it back together.
Would I recommend this to your mom? Yes. Would I recommend it to a mid hardcore gamer such as myself? Yes. Would I recommend it to someone that wants to listen to lots of music? Probably not since there is no mid bass, and it feels like you're missing out on the music experience.
Pros - Great build quality - Good sound quality - Lightweight - Mic is clear - Durable
Cons - None yet
Summary Great pair of headphones for the sale price I got them at of 59.99$. Also comes with a great game. Sound is what you would expect from Sennheiser, build quality just the same. Mic is great not only in clearness, but location. The top head rest may be the only problem, not that it is that bad. With longer hair, it can really get annoying. However, I got used to it in no time. Great pair of headphones. Would buy again.
Pros Good sound Okay microphone Feels fairly durable Got a copy of Assassin's Creed AND Prince of Persia
Cons A bit big and uncomfortable on the ears after a while
Summary I expected amazing microphone quality, but it was only decent. To be honest though, I had high expectations and I've never really had a problem with microphone sound, even on a pair of Logitech's that cost $5. I remember a NCIX tech tips review when Linus said his friends noticed his voice being more clear when he switched to a better headset. Well, my friends didn't notice the change until I told them. The only true negative is that it can't really be worn for long hours on the computer. It might be my big head or the fact that I tend to like earphones or behind the head headphones more than I like bulky headphone style headsets. It pushes against the ears a little too hard. I should also note that these are on-ear headphones and not over-the-ear headphones. Finally, these are closed headsets so it does get a bit warm in the ears after a while. At any rate, got 2 games with it which is always great. The only other thing is that if I waited a bit longer, I could have gotten it for cheaper, but that's life.

Summary I bought a pair of this at fifty bucks which included Prince of Persia game. This has a good sound output. Haven't tested the microphone but I don't think I'm going to need it. Overall, I'm very satisfied with it.
Summary I bought these to replace an old cheap set I bought 6 years ago and am so glad I waited. I was looking for something with decent audio for gaming and a good quality mic for voice comms ingame and so far I haven't been disappointed. Having worn alsorts of headsets for work, I've found these to be extremely comfortable on my big melon of a head and they fit over my ears quite well.
If you are looking for a set under $100, I would recommend these in a heartbeat.
