    "The Logitech G430 headphones are great for gaming, and a good value. If you want headphones for just music, I would look elsewhere, but if you want gaming headphones with a built-in mic, these are a great option. I use them every day, and the sound quality is great for the price."

    "At first, I was really into these headphones. I was excited to get them and upon taking them out of the box I thought they looked high quality. I was impressed with the sound quality at first as well. The sound was wonderful. I could hear everything and for the price I was blown away. A month later they began to fall apart. The ear support started pulling away from the plastic and a week later they are totally useless. Way too expensive for how short of a lifespan I got out of these. "

    "These headphones are definitely the best quality for the price you pay, however I wouldn't recommend them. Although the sound quality is definitely good enough, and the price is extremely fair, these headphones fall flat in construction quality. These headphones will be great for a few months, and then they'll start falling apart, or the sound in one ear will just stop working. If you truly can't afford anything better, I guess these would work, but you're better off spending a little more money and getting something that lasts."

    "I honestly don't know why headphones are so expensive, but something about them screams cash grab. You have things like Beats by Dre that are in the multi-hundreds which just boggles my mind. I was looking for some headphones that are more reasonable without being completely low grade, so I checked these out. They are very highly rated, with the only major problems seeming to be lack of noise cancelling, which isn't a big issue for me."
