"Poor construction"
1 stars"

The surround sound on this item is good for gaming such as counter strike for its surround sound capabilities but the design is flawed. They feel strange while wearing them then broke at the swivel joints on both sides at the same time while wearing them. Good sound, Bad construction. Recommend not buying this item.

"Weak construction"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I'm sorry to report that the construction of this headset is weak. I have tried 2 sets now and both have broken at the swivel point where the earpiece is attached. A real pity as I liked the surround sound quite a lot while gaming and watching DVD's. I hope Saitek take notice and redesign them for the future

"Good sound but poor construction"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The sound quality on these headphones is more than adequate. I have no complaints there and consider it superior to any other combinations I have tried. In terms of comfort it did take me awhile to get used to them. I normally wear a pair of Philips HP170s for listening to music while working and those never caused any problems, but with the Saitek set it started to annoy the top of my head after about an hour's worth of wear. No amount of adjustment helped for that.

My big complaint is the general flimsiness of the joints. Where the headphones joins the head strap there is a plastic swivel joint. Picking them up off my chair and turning them from the flat (They swivel for fitting into the case, I guess) position into a wearable position snapped it without any form of force required.

Now they're useless as you can't wear them with that swivel broken.
