A good all-round headset
Daniel C, 02.11.2017
Originally bought as a cheap, temporary alternative to a speaker and mic setup I had whilst moving house, this headset has become my go-to for everyday listening, gaming, and communication. Built like a tank, yet lightweight and comfortable enough to use for extended periods of time. They do lack a bit of dynamic range, but having been designed to be used in a theater environment, it's to be expected. The mic arm does feel a little feeble at times, but is stable and isn't going anywhere. Keep the windshield on though. There's plenty of space in them, and will suit all head sizes - having a big head and large ears my self, the cups are surprisingly comfortable, and theres still room for adjustment too. There is little noise spill, and the closed back design also stops a lot of outside noise as well.

Overall, very solid construction, sound quality to match, and a price tag that cannot be argued with.

Superlux HMC 660 X - Field Tested in Battle Zones
edmahoo, 30.04.2013
At first I was a little dubious when I saw the price of the Superlux HMC 660 X Headset. So I decided to order a set to test it out. I was very impressed when I received it and tested it, I'd been searching for quite some time for a pair of headsets but the prices were just to expensive!
Note:
1. I would recommend buying an extra windshield to cover the existing mic as I found it really helped a lot.
2. This is a condenser mic and needs phantom power, they will not run off a usual 24/48v phantom powered desk, which I found was it's only drawback!
I recommend the Millenium PP2B phantom Power Supply, which is switchable between 12v and 48v (it takes two mics, set the switch to 12v position!) and can also run off two 9v batteries. The batteries lasted a whole event which was over 7hrs of recording.

I use four of these headsets in my setup, (for commentary and monitoring system) and I am so pleased with the outcome.

Here is a link to my youtube channel with them in use.

Best ever headset I've had and I've owned much pricier ones but none have been this good. These have very nice sound quality, both for headphones and microphone. Durable and very comfortable, esp. so as I bought velour ear pads. I can't see any reason to pay any more for a headset when you can get something so so good for this price.

Good value for money
LeRambeau, 26.12.2018
But do get the genuine Beyer Dynamic velour pads right from the start, the superlux originals are not good and the BD ones are glorious.

I use these at work for listening to music and teleconferencing (with the t.bone micplug)

The construction is a bit creaky and at least on my unit this sometimes causes noises from the frame settling to couple into the microphone, whether or not this annoys the people you're talking with depends on various things.

Anyway it works very well, the sound quality is fine and the price isn't half bad even when you include the BD pads.
