Meh. They work well, but the sound is weird sometimes if I'm fiddling with the cord. I'll upgrade these when I feel the need to.

Comfortable for long periods of time with pretty good sound. The vibration is a feature I personally enjoy and is very easy to turn off if that's not your thing. Easy mute and volume control as well.
I often get asked what mic I am using by team members in overwatch and discord because it sounds so good. I should say that I don't have trained ears or do any sort of audio work but when compared to a friend's Blue Yeti Mic (my speaking voice recorded through Audacity with zero editing and listened to using these headphones so take it as you do) I can barely notice a difference.
Not to say it's as good as a professional quality microphone, and if you're trained to look for and notice the things that make audio good and bad you might have a very different opinion, but it far exceeds my expectations.
UPDATE 7/27/19: So I got these back in August of 2016 and wanted to give a longevity update. I use these for multiple hours at a time on an almost daily basis. When I'm not wearing them they are more often than not on the floor, where they have been stepped on and tripped over. I have rolled over the cord with my chair more times than I can count. I do not take good care of these and they still work rather well.
After 3ish years of heavy and rough use, the sound is still very clear and well rounded, and the mic is still working perfectly. The headphones maintain a firm but comfortable grip on my head. I have also not found any fraying on the braided cable.
The pleather lining on the foam pads has started to peel significantly, although the foam is still comfortable and retains its original shape. The audio can be unbalanced sometimes (louder on left or right) depending on where the volume knob is sitting, but just adjusting the volume a little on the built-in dial fixes it. Finally, although the mic light still turns on and off with the mute button, it does not mute the mic anymore (found that out the hard way).
Overall I have to say I'm almost more impressed after realizing how long I've had these, and how well they are still holding up with no effort on my part to keep them going.
