I remember I was so excited when I bought these for around $130. The sound was not bad at all. However, the headset has a design flaw. The swivel points for the cups are located within an inclosed plastic molding with a srew-on lid that is way too thin and they crack and eventually break after a few months of use. You may try putting duct tape around the joint-section but the weird physical shape of the connecting molding makes that difficult. After about 18 months, the material they covered the ear cups with has started flaking off. Overall I am a Logitech fan however I am dissapointed they have not recalled this product yet. I also have another Logitech headset that was only $30 and it has none of these types of problems.
