I originally ordered this from my local GameStop that was out of stock. It took me a while to set them up with my Mac mini just because it was in PS mode instead of PC on the transmitter (there weren't any directions that came with it to switch them (I googled how to do it)). After hooking them up the first time, they would stall my videos, or anything with sound really, but once I figured them out, they sound amazing.
Some quirks? Every video I watch on YouTube, after the first second, feedback will come through, then the sound will pick back up. I'm not sure if it is the headphones or my connection? And also, there is a lag on them. I have a YouTube channel, and I screen recorded using the microphone to have the audio as well. My audio lagged behind by 1 second regardless if I was being quiet or not. SO editing was a hassle. There is also a lag when watching videos. If I leave the video alone, sit still, don't touch the computer, and just listen through my headphones. The audio goes faster than the actual video. Once they disconnect, everything goes back to normal. If nothing is playing for a minute, then I start to hear ringing in the headphones, I thought I was getting a migraine, but I didn't hear anything once I took them off. . . I'm not sure what's going on.
The person at GameStop did recommend another pair but it wasn't what I was looking for, and sadly, he didn't know of any other logical options, so he set me up with the order. NO SHADE TO HIM! But it was just me being a bit stubborn wanting a specific type and color for my setup :P
On the good side, they are very comfy, my head is a bit small, so I just have to pull them back up when they slide, but I can wear these for hours. The muting mic flip is VERY convenient and I love the feature. I don't know much about gaming, so I don't know what the levels button on them does, but if someone does know what they do, then consider this pair if it is a good thing?? Volume scroll is very useful! Also the noise cancelling is pretty good, I unfortunately live in a loud house, but they cancel out most of the background noise around me.
I'm not sure if I would recommend these because I don't know gamers, and I don't know where they wold fall on the spectrum.
