    I think it is worth the risk

    I don't think most $35 headphones will have the features. I don't have a ton of experience with headphones but having a mic could be useful for Left 4 Dead 2 sessions. :cool:

    That may be true, but these aren't $35 headphones, they're $99 headphones for $35.

    You can find these for as low as $60 shipped on the internet.

    They are $35 shipped for free

    Still a lot less than $60.

    Just ordered a MK II headset for $35 to my door.

    Hopefully its better than my Plantronics Gamecom 1. (I'm thinking it will be)

    Newegg Seems To Have Cancelled My 2 Orders

    That is puzzling. Why the hell advertise if you don't have the product?

    They were definitely in stock when I ordered. Did anybody else get screwed?

    Just got my headset today ;~P So far I'm really satisfied with this headset and my Creative X-Fi Xtreme Music (using default creative drivers on Win7 Pro 64 - 192 kHz 24-bit)

    I don't know if its me or what but I had to adjust the bass through an equalizer. The bass on this headset is too strong, simply too much. I use foobar2000 for audio playback & thankfully tuning equalizer presets for music is a breeze ;~}

    I should warn you with this headset for music - be prepared to fine tune this headset according to your music tastes.

    The feel of the headset is amazing - very ergonomic and it hasn't bothered me after wearing it for a few hours. I've yet to game with it on. Going to have to try out some Bad Company 2 & some CS:S here later.

    They auto reordered the headphones for me

    Newegg really is great. Since they didn't have them and didn't tell us fast enough they simply auto reordered them for me at the shellshocker price. I didn't get my sets yet but I can't wait to do some 2:00 AM late night ear blistering gaming sessions. Thanks for your comments, Ross.
