In the box you get everything you need and more, the headset includes a detachable microphone as well as a stereo adapter to go from the standard mini jack connection to the ¼ jack found on higher end stereo systems. The headphone cord itself is made of a heavier gauge cord than is typically found on most headsets the length of the cord comes in at nine feet; this is quite a bit longer than your standard headphones. This allows you to route the cord around other objects such as desks and monitors making it very easy to integrate these headphones into your computer setup.

The microphone itself is completely detachable from the headset; the box includes the necessary hardware to attach the microphone to your monitor so that you can use it much like a stationary setup. On the microphone there is an on/off switch that allows you to easily mute the microphone. Also included is an inline independent volume control for the headset. This actually serves a dual purpose, not only does it allow you to control the volume of your headphones independent of the computer, it also lets you detach the headphones themselves allowing them to provide a dual purpose. So when you're done with them on your computer you can detach them from the main cord and take them with you for use with an MP3 player or other portable media device.

The headphones themselves are constructed from moderately lightweight plastic. While they are not the lightest weight headphones I have used the design of them is such that they are still comfortable to where for an extended period of time.

The ear cups are large enough to fit over most people's ears, the padded ring around the headphone and the concave design of the cup allows them to rest comfortably against the side of your head without putting uncomfortable pressure on your ears themselves. This also helps to isolate outside noise providing a better listening environment. The cups also have decent ventilation again providing better comfort than typical headphones.
