As far as i have read it is only bendy, i have decided not to go through this seller, as his reputation is horrible and his shipping prices are crazy.

quote:If your standards for "good with music" are anywhere close to mine, you are not going to get all of that in one headset without spending at least $300. Most headsets, particularly USB headsets, are intended for chat and are barely FM radio quality. Most high end headphones are intended for listening to music and don't come with microphones. There are only a handful of products that combine high end headphones with a mic, aimed at the DJ and professional market, and priced accordingly.
As far as chat grade headsets go, I have been through several and highly recommend Logitech Premium Notebook headset. It is comfortable, has proven durable (after a year of daily use, mine shows no signs of wear), and the sound quality is decent for both headphones and microphone. I certainly wouldn't call it "high fidelity", but it might be acceptable for someone who also finds the white iPod earbuds good enough.
The headset itself is analog, but ships with a USB dongle -- which works fine with other analog headsets. That means if you ever break the headset, you will still have the USB dongle and will be able to choose from a much wider selection of both analog and USB headsets when you replace it. The folding feature and carrying case are not very important to me, but were still handy the few times I've needed to pack it in my luggage.

Unfortunately i'm not as rich as $300 and I am only looking for headphones that play audio suitably and has a USB plug and play capability, as I am completely unable to get my front jacks on the computer to work and the back jacks, simply require too much effort to deal with all the time.

I'm not quite sure what the headset audio quality is like, but I recently purchased a Logitech EasyCall pack from PCW for £25. Now, I was really just looking for a keyboard and mouse for my little sister as I'd built a new PC for myself, but this is a pretty damned good deal.
