After reading a few reviews, I decided to purchase this product and WOW it delivered more than it should at the price.
I purchased it from Flipkart and I am writing my first review for this product. If you are buying this from Flipkart then you can be sure that the packaging would be sweeet with bubble-wrap and tight cardboard wrap.

Review

After reading all the reviews in Flipkart I decided to buy this product. And WOW I am 100% satisfied with my purchase and it gives more than what you pay for :dance: . For this price, this headphone is a GENIUS BEAST! The vibration function gives you a hear pounding bass combined with rich audio quality and loudness, this one is a must buy for all gaming as well as stunning music and movie watching.It left me stunned in its music performance :surprise: . The mic is also fabulous. I played Modern Warfare with this headset and I could hear the voices of my teammates clearly and the explosion felt almost real due to the vibration function. To sum up, here are the pros and cons..

Pros :thumbsup: :

* Loud volume and awesome bass. The clarity of voice is also superb for this price. Dont expect the bass to be ridiculously high.
* Good isolation from noise though at high volumes it can be heard outside.
* Good mic quality.
* Well designed and sturdy material and soft for head.
* Vibration for woofer like feeling. This is the main enhancer of the bass. It makes you feel out of control. You can feel the vibration on touching the headset and its heart pounding and total stunner (AweSome)
* Mute button & volume control
* A steal at this price

Cons :thumbdown: :
* A bit heavy (you will get used to soon)
* The buttons on the headsets seem a little tight.
* Earcups are not so big for those with humongous ears.

CONCLUSION:

So I would personally recommend this to all PC gamers whose budget is around 1000 bucks because this headset clearly delivers more than what it should. It aint as rocking as Beats,Senhieser,SteelSeries but I am totally satisfied with my purchase and you can be too. The main feature of this product is its BASS VIBRATION :wOOtjumpy: !
Whether you are shooting down the city or climbing hills or doing whatever crazy things, this headset will definitely take you along with it...
Would give it a 4 star out of five. Grab this if you have a tight budget..you wont regret it :naughty: .

Shut up :chair:, not everything has to be analytical, and you of all people should know that people don't usually dig a neutral sound signature.

Nice review.

Repped for sharing mate. I'm looking for headphones in a similar price range. I've got one question though. Can I run the headphones with full functionality on USB alone? Is it compatible with the PS3 for Voice chat?

Don't know how to exactly analyse sound quality :scratchchin: . But I'm pretty sure the quality is superb for the price i.e mid I guess.

Sorry but its not compatible with the PS3 :( . Its a PC headphone. The USB is just to power up the vibration.

This headset is really good when you consider the price. I might not be a hardcore gamer but I found the vibration quite fascinating. You can read other reviews in Flipkart.

Well as I mentioned in my previous posts, the USB is the power source for the vibration that the headset provides.
So if you unplug the USB, there will be no vibration.

And apart from that, how is the sound quality?
I mean how is the SQ strictly as a headphone, i.e. no usb connection.

Without the USB, there will be no treble effect but the sound quality is excellent at this price range.
While hearing music and watching movies, I felt the sound quality awesome :walkman: .

Well to tell you the truth I don't see the what the fuss is about ...
If you wanna use only the headphones with vibration (without the mic) on the ps3 then you can always use the analog cables that come bundled with the ps3 (ya the ones you thought were useless) to output sound and use a \setup of this sorts:

This way you can use any headphones from your klipsch to the ones that come with cellphones.

EDIT:
Just FYI Red + White = Audio
Yellow = Video

Dude I already have that setup and use it for normal headphones. I just want the mic to work with the PS3 for voice chat. Microphone = priority for me :| (I hate BT wireless headsets :P )

I personally use Wireless Stero PS3 headset for my PS3. Wired headsets are a headache for me when it comes to PS3.
For PC, I use this Genius wired one as they are comfortable...

@AngerSmash: That one's costlier. You better use the cheap one.

Dude take this one:

http://www.ebay.in/i...#ht_1662wt_1139
I think this is the cheapest and best bet out there...I swear I saw one like this for 49 bucks on ebay.

just try searching on ebay,flipkart etc.:
"female RCA to female 3.5 mm"



EDIT:
If you wanna buy 2 then this comes out cheaper:
