Cons:It's nitpicky, but the very long cord sometimes gets in the way.
The Bottom Line:
If this headset died tomorrow I would go out and buy another just like it . . . Sennheiser sound and quality for a decent price.
I bought this Sennheiser headset after starting to play World of Warcraft . . . and I am pleased to say that the headset has worked out well as it is both comfortable and the sound quality is top notch both while playing video games on-line or while watching a show or movie via Netflix.
The headset: I specifically went with Sennheiser as I own a wireless Sennheiser headset that I routinely use while watching TV or DVDs while my wife is sleeping (she works nights and I work days.) I have been impressed with the dynamic range of the wireless Sennheiser and I quickly found this to be true with the Sennheiser PC 151. While playing WoW I cannot tell you how many times I have noticed sound effects while wearing the headset that I did not hear while playing the game with only the computer speakers on.
The microphone: Sound quality was good from the get go . . . the same cannot be said about a friend's headset which often makes him sound like he is talking into a soup can . . . or alternately talking with a scarf wrapped around his face.
The cord: I have mixed feelings about the cord . . . mainly because it is super long . . . about 10 feet in total. When I'm playing an on-line game the long cord sometimes gets in the way unless I wrap it around a speaker, edge of the desk, etc. . . . but when I'm watching an on-line movie or TV show and want to sit in my office recliner it's pretty darn convenient to have that extra cord.
