The mic reduces distracting background noise so you’re clearly heard. Plus, you rotate the mic to the best position for the clearest voice pick up—or up and out of the way when you’re not talking.

Richard Crisonino says:

How it fix mic problems- Mostly everything about them so far is great. 

CrispyChip says:

They are great, and have one advantage over the wireless G930. I had a pair of G930’s, but I wore them out, and I decided to go with a wired version to not have to deal with charging a headset. These sound pretty much the same and the overall comfort is comparable, so I’m satisfied. 

Dirk Hamilton says:

I should have done better research before buying I should have done better research before buying, I really just jumped for the price and I got mine refurbished. When the G930 first came out, apparently it was the God Hand of head sets, or at least somewhere close. That’s no longer true. When it works. It’s solid, the sound is amazing. You can hear colors.
