[My Review]
Pros

  • Great sound quality, clear and crisp with good noise isolation.  Solid sounding treble and bass, and the software enhances the audio quality for better listening experience.
  • The build quality is relatively solid yet light, it does not put much weight on one’s head.  The headphone sits snuggly on one’s head with much comfort. 
  • Love that the microphone is detachable since this may not be required at all times.  The microphone is clear and do not show much  interference or distortion, but slight echoic is noticed. With the adjustable microphone and range of the headset, voice chatting works fine when needed to step away from the computer. 
  • It is compatible with multiple platforms, with both Macs and PCs.
  • Convenient volume controls with rotary dial, but I personally prefer the placement of the volume control dial to be placed on the right side of the headset.
  • Loud and powerful volume (Volume set around 25% range will be sufficient for most times)
  • Long battery life, it managed to last well for a good whole of 7 hours with near 50% battery life span left. You can gauge the remaining battery life span through the software. 
  • A long braided cord for the USB port is provided, which allows charging while the headset is plugged in. Some may find the length it a bit too short, but I personally felt that length is just nice. 
  • It is easy to set up, the headset still functions without the software installed, but with software installed, more options are available, e.g. plenty of controls that allow you to customize your sound depending on what you’re playing/watching/listening to.

Cons

  • The headset is not compatible with consoles and mobile devices, which may explain more of its price affordability.
  • Software not included in the package, need to download online only.
  • When adjusting the volume with the rotary dial, there will be a beep tone which can be of slight disturbance when you are in the midst of listening to music or watching TV series or movies.

Conclusion
The overall experience is good; really love its clear and crisp sound quality.  At a price of SGD 149.00, I find it a reasonably priced and affordable.  The range of the wireless headset is pretty good and I can conveniently walk away from my laptop to work on something else yet without distortion.
