    I'm not sure I'd be comfortable wearing those in private, let alone out in public...

    detachable seems like it might unplug from simple snagging. Which can be a good thing and a bad thing.

    If they could just stop using that bluudy etnic theme as brand logo. I don't want to see Celtic druids in dreams when I sleep. I have been to Galicia and Cornwall, been there done that.

    "Deeper bass" makes me a sad panda. Can't expect much for $60 I guess.

    I would happily use these but the angle of the cups seams a little too much to be comfortable for long periods.

    There is a mic, it's an inline one and can be seen in the second picture.

    Thanks I see it now, though it raises the question of sound quality to me, but as Fourstaff said . . .

    I missed it at first, really i would not expect much out of a mic like that but also i would guess it would pick up on more background noise compared to a more standard (closer) headset mic, it possibly may as well come without a mic. :laugh:

    It's listed at 25 – 16,000 Hz

    25 Hz is not deep bass... My Sony MDR-XB700's run at 3-28,000Hz and they are just slightly more expensive.

    and the proxmity effects pretty mcuh make bass on a headphone a piss ass contest anyways. Not to mention that most of you are going fucking deaf.

    The color scheme of my next build is black and green.... no....still cant do it. over priced led fans and key board yes gaudy head phones no. Shouldn't they have like a test audience of gamers critique their products or something. Unless they sound divine or feel like your not wearing them or something... discount bin.
