The headphones became uncomfortable after several hours of gaming, but there was not that sensation of ears 'sweating' from the fitting, but rather just the pressure consistently applied. Still, the sound quality was terrific, delivering layers from the bass underscores to the more prominent layers. There was even a sense of directional sound, though that may have been imagination. The microphone was also a solid bit of equipment. The Piranha is a solid headset that delivers great sound.
