Bought the IMICRO usb headsets about 2 months ago...their almost dead already. The headphones no longer have bass. They were under 20 dollars anyway.

Suggest to me a good USB headset for my computer under 25 bucks.

All suggestions appreciated.

Why not pay a bit more and then get something that lasts more than 2 months?

I agree about paying a bit more. I bought these for the office, $35.

You mention bass, on what device are you listening? You could get some kind of EQ to increase the bass and treble and mids etc.

Plus headphones that cheap usually have a single driver that covers all frequencies, not a separate one for bass.

A software based EQ does make all the difference. It will make crappy speakers sound much better. Case in point is the factory system in my car. FM radio typically sounds bad with CD's sounding a bit better. Playing music through my phone and using an EQ makes all the difference in the world. It's almost like having a high end system if you close your eyes, lol.

Agreed, but I was referencing OP’s comment that the “headphones no longer have bass”.

Default Koss Ports Pro headphones

I have the Koss Porta Pros. They are on-ear, inexpensive headphones and they sound quite good. Very light. These are not high-end but I would give them a try.

YW. What I stated about an EQ still applies. You can make them sound even better. Are you on a PC?
