    **Updated** Quality budget headset, the wiring is it’s biggest downfall., July 21, 2011

    This video shows off the mic quality and the headset’s features.

    **Update 2/10/2013**

    Well, it has been over a year since this review.

    The headset itself has held up to lots of use and even drop abuse.
    The one thing that I would like to note (which is why I gave it a 4 star in the first place) it is a cheap headset, so the wiring is where they cut corners. The wires themselves are very tiny, and soldering it could be difficult. The second headset I received has had issues after a year of use, the little control box on the wire is put together cheaply and can cause static if the volume level is maxed. The microphone also has a tendency to go out so I have to tug on the wire from the box to get it to work.

    However, my brother who still has his original pair has had no issues at all.

    **Update 10/22/2013**
    I will be needing to replace this headset soon, my mic has gone out (unless I want to try moving the wiring around the control box) and the speakers are starting to develop static when the wire is moved (also mostly around the control box.)

    I will say this for the manufacture, removing the control box would be awesome, I use it rarely. Some of my friends that have the same headset use the control box, but only because it’s available to them, as most voice communicating software comes with an easy way to mute your microphone.
    I consider volume control on a headset worthless, since it’s easy to change the audio volume on your computer.

    My brother’s headset is still working like a champ. (I’m envious.)

    They are okay headsets, not stylish, but comfortable and quite affordable.

    On another note: I am looking at other headsets or even just headphones and buying a dedicated microphone at the time of writing this update. I may buy another pair of these since they are cheap. However the pair that I got last were not the quality that I had before and I am looking at other options.

    This does not come with a USB hook up. I’m personally happy about that. It frees up my other two USB ports. It comes with a two pronged hook-up, for the microphone port and the headphone port. You can plug in just one or both, depending on your needs.

    Just make sure you have a mic and headphones port on your computer, the small round ones. (I don’t know the technical term.)

    If I just want to listen to music, I can use the headset alone. If I just need the mic, I can unplug the headphone jack from the port and have my computer’s sound come through the speakers. The mic still functions.

    It’s very comfortable, unlike some headphones. I can wear it for hours and forget I have it on. The sound is great, and the microphone seems to work well for my gaming needs.

    One tiny negative would be that it encloses your ears completely. So hearing the sounds around you can be somewhat difficult. That can be a positive as well, though, since it blocks out other noises.

    Over all, this is a great uncomplicated device. I plugged it in, and it worked!

    Yapster TM-YW100A – nice sound quality, sensitive mic. I checked mic in Corel Video Studio Pro X2. Recording quality: loud, clear, no white noise. I liked it. Sound is great also! Good enough bass and high frequencies.
    Fit exactly for my ears. Feels a little tight, but if you want to unbend it be aware that it is plastic under soft leather so be careful.
    Headphones have volume control, mute button. Both work so far flawlessly.
    Very nice design. Mid size. Cord 168 cm though not 2.2m as in description, but it’s still long enough to not pluck off if you will stand up suddenly. The mic handle is very pliable and long enough for anybody’s head. It’s about 7.5” or 19 cm from plastic part of center of connection with headphone to the end of plastic part of microphone. You can bend it on anyway you want. Very handy!Other characteristics:

    3.5 mini-jack;

    Microphone:
    Noise reduction design (however I’d recommend adjust it lower otherwise your breath from nose will be heard);
    Omni-directional;
    Frequency response: 30 – 16Khz
    Sensitivity: -59 db

    Headphones:

    Frequency response: 20 – 20KHz
    Sensitivity: 100db
    Max power input 50mW

    Right price, right size, right headphones with microphone – right on, right on!

    Update: 6 months later I bought some unbranded VOIP/SKYPE Headset w/Microphone which was cheaper and I regretted it. As old says don’t buy to cheap – you’ll pay twice. It was a step down after Yapster. So, on the second day I ordered from Yapster and received (in couple days) my well known TM-YW100A. It’s my second headset (first one was taken from me by my kid) and I still happy with it. Microphone quality is outstanding and so sound quality.

    The only thing I’d highly recommend to Yapster Company is to include the Microphone Cover which is noticeably reduce a breath noise.

    The rest is awesome!
    Long life to Yapster! 🙂
    I still recommend it very much.
