I have had my pair of X'3 for over 4 years now and they still work like the day I took them off of the shelf. The sound quality is great and has helped me many times in my multi-player gaming sessions. These are also great for just watching movies or television especially if you have no surround sound system. Late night viewing or gaming will no longer disturb the rest of the family who is trying to sleep, just turn the volume all the way down on the television and listen through the headset. They fit over my ears perfectly and because of the large pads I can wear them very comfortably for hours. Only draw back I find is they eat up batteries fairly quickly so It would be a good idea to have some rechargeable batteries on hand for these. Sound Quality The sound is great and love the fact that when chatting you can control the volume from the movie your watching or game you are playing independently from the chat volume which has its own dedicated setting.
