Rock the microphone
What I really love about these headphones is not the sound reproduction, but the sound collection from the uni-directional microphone.
It seems to have the ability to filter out background noises without really trying, there is little more than a rumble really when you are speaking.
This makes for clear and understandable voice conversations with your mates when playing games or chatting to mum on Skype.
The mic unit can clip to you or to your monitor thanks to the inclusion of a little "L" shape bracket and some velcro sticky tabs.
This separation of microphone and volume control unit is liberating, but at the same time awkward, because if you have it attached to the screen and suddenly reach the limit of the cable stretch... well, I guess that why it's attached with velcro!
But there is no real problem with having a separated microphone other than your own clumsiness. The ability to place it anywhere on your person, or not have it attached at all, really makes a difference with these headphones.
Did I mention it comes in four colours? Black, White, Pink and limited edition Red!
