Incorrectly wired, useless as shipped.
11.06.2016
A well-made product with great potential. But flawed!

The wiring diagram supplied (also published on-line by Superlux - on the strength of which I bought the product) is deceptive. It clearly shows the mic capsule wired balanced, i.e. yellow & green wires as a screened pair. (Professional users will naturally want an XLR istead of the irrelevant mini-jack, but his 'x' option doesn't seem to be available any more.) The real problem is that the mic capsule has actually been wired single-ended (unbalanced) in the boom, feeding the green and yellow wires (balanced pair) shorted together!!! So, in this way, the microphone will never work!

When wired properly, the microphone quality is actually very good.

Headphone quality is also excellent - not unlike the HD-330, but with less LF extension due to the closed-back design.

Comfort is good.

How stupid to ship a product that's not fit for purpose, for the sake of 20cm of the right cable. If it wasn't for this, they could clean up the likes of beyer, Sennheiser, Shure etc. I feel that Thomann should take this matter up with Superlux immediately.

Nice quality, shipment and delivery were very fast even tho the headset was not "in stock" when I bought it. I totally recommend thomann, they provide a good service in general.

Partly disappointed.

The build of headset is OK for that price, sound quality is really good as well, but definitely there is something wrong with the mic!
Connected to Asus STX sound card, or even to on board music card mic causes HUGE disruptions that nobody I speak with can actually hear me! I had to buy MODMIC 4 to have fully working headset. Overall - Partly disappointed!
