Be warned, these headsets are nice when they work. But there is a pretty fatal flaw in the drivers that may screw with your computer to the point of being unusable. You can still use them without drivers, but they only operate in stereo, and there are plenty of better and cheaper options for headphones if you just want a wireless stereo headset. I, along with many others facing the issue, have been working with Logitech for quite some time to figure out the issue and fix it, but to date their answer is 'sorry about your luck, we'll get to it when we can, but thanks for your money.'

I would not recommend these to anyone until this bug is fixed seeing as you may be stuck with a lemon rotting on your desk.

I obviously wouldn't recommend these to anyone who is not looking for a surround sound headset. There are good stereo ones for less than half the price.

I did a lot of research before deciding to buy this one, and have been waiting for a few months to find it at such a good price, I hope I won't experience the same bug you have.

Either way, it's pretty easy to return to Staples, so if I happen to have the same bug (which I understand is rare because I haven't heard about it) then I Won't be stuck with a lemon.

If they work with your computer, great. They're good headphones, (there's also a common and annoying problem with static and disconnects, both of which I've experienced frequently but overlooked until now) which irritates me all the more. I bought these last summer and they worked well with my computer and when I built my new computer over the holidays, the problem arose. So that means I can no longer return them to Amazon and I can't simply return them to Logitech for service under the warranty since it's a software issue. It's quite a crappy situation and Logitech is of no help. Their poor service, lack of responsiveness, and lack of communication with their community should be noted.

I've given up recently and ordered a Creative Labs Tactic3d headset. Hopefully these will work out better.

@kaisterbahn: I don't want to come off as an asshole, but I think you would be much better off, as well as anyone else, to simply buy a great pair of headphones, and a seperate microphone. In my case, I've got a pair of ATH-M50's and the Antlion Modmic should be arriving in a few days. I've found that the headsets usually lose the microphone or one of the cups goes out after a few months of consistent use. Before my current setup, I had the steelseries siberia v2's, and before that pair, I used the sennheiser 515+zalman clip on mic.

@trolleycart: I can see where you're coming from if the issues with these headsets were primarily cosmetic, but pretty much every common issue (sans another couple that I haven't experienced but read about on the forums) comes from the software. Even the static issues can be fixed by tweaking software. I've had these and used them consistently for a half year and the design seems sturdy, I will give these things credit where credit is due. The fatal flaw lies within the crappy software design.

These are on sale because they suck. They are still over-priced for broken out of the box headphones.
