PRODUCT WALKTHROUGH & PICTORIAL
With a press of a small mechanism on each side you can remove the side earphone assembly from the top headrest for easier transportation. I find this essential if you are a LAN Gamer or like to take this headset for music enjoyment when you are traveling. This ability doesn't seem to hurt the overall stiffness of the headset when it is fully assembled.
As mentioned earlier, the top head rest cushion is well padded but does reduce the size of the head this product can fit on. I suggest a reduction of 50% for added size capability and extending the side expansion joints a couple notches more.
Moving onto the headset itself, the earphones are exceptionally comfortable although a little more ventilation would not be a bad thing. If you head fits this headset, extended use should not be a problem. Overall these earphones are one of the most comfortable I have ever used and thanks to the fabric covering, you should expect much more product life when compared to the smooth plastic covered foam earphone padding seen on some older and even some newer headsets. This plastic covering is known to crack and degrade over time. But remember, you don't have to deal with that.
Included in the left earphone is a handy five inch long retractable microphone to use during game play. The microphone quality is nothing less than excellent and with the microphone fully extended you will see it will be placed right near the left corner of you mouth. Use it when you need it, retract it when you don't. You won't even know it is there either way.
