Headphones with Microphone
Skullcandy and Speedlink Series Headphones Reviews

When you want to get headphones with microphone and you are into gaming or talking a lot over the internet with other people, then getting a pair of headphones with a microphone is a good idea.

We'll go over some headphones that have microphones on them and what you should pay attention to when buying headphones with a microphone.

What you will be looking for are some stable headphones that are not necessarily optimised for sound quality, but give enough sound quality to understand and enjoy listening to the people you are talking to, as well as the games you are playing.

Skullcandy Hesh in-line microphone Headphone

A great pair of headphones with a microphone is the relatively inexpensive Skullcandy Hesh in-line microphone Headphone that I have used as well.

They have a nice padded headpiece that is very flexible and the soft and foamy earpieces go on top of your ears, but still have great sound quality.

The long cable is ideal for use on the computer and they can endure falls and tugging pretty well.

The cable has better end protection linking to the headset too which give it extra protection as well.

The microphone is completely flexible and bendable, being in-line, which is ideal and the sound quality for transmitting and receiving voice is great.

Speedlink Series of Headphones

Speedlink Medusa 5.1 Headphones with Microphones
Another good pair of headphones is from the Speedlink series of headphones. There have a wide variety of headphones that range in price from $20 to $90.

The more you pay, the more comfortable they get. The $90 model has large earpieces that cover your ears entirely and has great sound quality on higher and lower frequencies.

Sadly, it has a rather faulty connector on older models, which can lead to loss of sound if not treated carefully.

The $90 Medusa 5.1 surround set model even comes with an amplifier box which you can put the headphones after use.

These headphones are very comfortable, offer great sound quality but the biggest flaw is that the connector that goes into the PC breaks often and if you don't have spares you might just have to wait for an exchange, it is rather annoying but other than that, these are very, very good headphones.

But the lower price models from Speedlink are great as well.

There is one model that even includes a bass amplifier, which doesn't work as well as promised however, often turning bass into static rather than improving the bass.

As far as I know these are not in their product range anymore but at the time it was fun trying them out to actually have your ears be massaged by the bass coming from the headphones.

It would work well with some songs, other songs turned into catastrophes. This imbalance will probably lead to its demise.

All in all, the Skullcandy for style and fun and the Speedlink headphones are recommended if you want good headphones with microphones that are comfortable, affordable and well-built— for the most part.
