These headphones are actually very comfortable, more comfier than any sennheiser ive purchased. Only problem that is annoying me is that I have now figured out why my mic never worked in black ops 2 and turns out I have to use PTT for this game which sucks. Should be a way just to have it on all the time. As for the sound quality its decent and is fine.
I would return them and just use any in ear headphones you have and put the 20 pounds towards a mixamp the hyper X is a good pairing I also own a pair of them look up the 350 se sennheiser they are crazy cheap in most places they are the older game zeros
thanks for the helpful info :) Others have recommended the hyperx headphones too. I just bought a pair of Numbro headphones from amazon as it is a best seller on there and I needed something for now. Not tried them yet but if they aren't good then I will look into Astro and hyperx
If your in the market to get a headset get a Astro mixamp and pair it with any headphones you like I use PC 360s And hd700s I do double amp when I use the latter
Ive been off the gaming scene for too long.

Astro Gaming Black Friday Sale - Up to 30% Off ASTRO Products
Not bad if your looking for a gaming headset in the sale. The best deal I've seen is £47,99 for the Astro A10 down from £59.99
How is it easier to switch if you don't mind me asking? I'm currently using two transmittors :P
Cool I'll have a look once my partner give me a chance to use the laptop! Having said That, I now need to look for a cheap laptop for myself... I can't be dealing with her hogging the laptop on the eve of black Friday.... Then she complains about not being able to wake up on time for work!!! I'm like GO TO SLEEP WOMAN!!!
Like Pro used to be called LimeXB360. Been around for years. They started as a shop primarily for Xbox 360 modded controllers and headsets, but have fleshed out into a multiplatform store, hence the name change recently. £149.99 for the Astro Gen 3's on there, returns but they are immaculate. Me and a friend for some and both pairs looked brand new.
I'll check out this lime pro you mention, never heard of them. Cool I'll probably stick to the gen 3 Astro a50 but they are not cheap at over 200 quid. Currently using turtle beach 800x elite for the ps4 pro - They are not as good as the a50s I owned (especially comfort wise). But for 56 during the Amazon 40% student sale I couldn't resist , so a bargain for the price.

I voted hot because this is the cheapest you can get them by about £30 and you do get the free earphones. But these were released in 2014 so they are old tech and they've had two updated versions since then, I think these rrp should be even cheaper than this. Plus those earphones are probably ****
Thanks for the reply (_;)
Yup, i have this set for my ps4, works straight out of box - amazing kit
Am I right in thinking that for xbox on that this headset isn't 100% wireless if you wish to use xbox one party chat? My current Afterglow AG9 are 100% 0 wires for both audio and chat. Thanks
They suck, but that's only after comparing them to audiophile STEREO headphones..that said they are good for gaming....these headphones are many, many years old, with next to no improvement hardware wise...If you love FPS games, these are perfect and the reason they stay expensive is because they sponsor pro gamers
