Works as advertised except for a problem with the boom mic becoming loose with no obvious way to fix it. Any suggestions appreciated.
I just got my AC-201 headset from Amazon. The product info on Amazon and here shows in-line volume control on the set. There is NO volume included and it is one reason I selected this set to purchase. I will be returning this product to Amazon.
Got this particular headset for online business. The mic is very clear, providing excellent noise reduction and the speakers are as good or better than the mic in their performance and delivery of crisp, clear sound. I'm very impressed with the quality of this product, as I was originally only attracted to it for its price. However, after having sampled what CA brings to the audio field of technology and my business, I'll likely be looking for more products from this company, as well as recommending it to others. Great job, CyberAcoustics!
I have not used the Mic on these due to their previous owner, my boyfriend, leaving them on the floor near the front door and then getting stepped on and broken. (my reason for the 4/5) Besides this, these are the best headphones I have ever owned. The sound quality is clearer and much nicer sounding than my friends' $100 Skullcandy headphones, and if you turn them up they don't hurt your ears. These are seriously amazing, at least in the headphone department.
I am using the AC-201 headset primarily for my Dragon Voice Activation program. It gave me very good results in terms of how well the mic picked up the sound of my voice for accuracy during dictation. However, after barely 1/2 hour of use, my ears were getting sore from the pressure of the headset, it felt too tight, and I have an average size womens head. I think the headset could be made more flexible for comfort sake. This is why I didn't give it a higher rating, because you need to be able to wear a headset for at least a couple of hours, and it shouldn't hurt to do so.
Slick, comfortable, and awesome quality, the AC-201 analog stereo headset is a great choice for anyone doing Voice Over iP and gaming. Bring your ears to attention with the AC-201’s 30mm dynamic drivers. The adjustable, over the head design fits comfortably on any head size, and the flexible boom mic’s 180-degree rotation gets the job done, no matter your preference. Comfort is no issue with the AC-201’s soft, leatherette ear pads. Listen in style.
