I can confirm that it does indeed fit Audio-Technica ATH-M50x as well as Sennheiser 558. The mic feels a little flimsy, but it does adjust easily and it holds its place. My friends tell me that I sound a little muffled, but in general the sound qualify is fairly good for such an inexpensive microphone...
Now for the few things that really bother me. First, they claim that this set-up works for the Xbox One. I was very excited about this idea because it would mean I could use my AC's or my Sennheisers as a gaming headset. Well, the 3.5mm output does fit into the controller, but the problem is it doesn't really connect well at all. When I was trying to play with the headset plugged into my controller, any slight movement of the controller in my hands would cause the sound output to go silent. The plug was still in the controller, and I double checked everything to make sure it was plugged in just right. I even changed controllers, but nothing changed. The plug stays in the controller, but the sound cuts in and out contently making it totally unusable for the Xbox One.
I have yet to try it on the PS4, but based on just plugging it into the controller, it will suffer from the same problem.
My last complaint is somewhat minor compared to my other complaints, but the braided cable is too stiff. This might seem a little petty, but since the cable is braided with stiff fibers, whenever the cable rubs against my clothes, or anything for that matter, I can hear the rubbing in my ear where the cable attaches to my headphones. The Razer Kraken Headset suffers from the same problem. The constant noise when you move your head or adjust your seating position gets really annoying after awhile.
I really wanted to love this product, but since I have only really been able to use this product successfully for one of the four claimed uses, I am going to have to give it two out of five stars.
EDIT: After trying to use this product for a few months, and having not had any contact from the seller, I'm going to lower my rating to one star. I really wanted this product to work, but in reality its poorly manufactured and barely works for one of the four uses they claim it works for.
• It feels pretty good albeit a bit flimsy (read light).
• The wire is braided and seems to be of good quality.
• I immediately plugged it into the controller of my PS4 and my Audio Technica ATH-M40X, and everything worked flawlessly.
• The mic is a bit sensitive. It picked up my wife's voice about 12' away. I set the mic volume in between low and medium in the PS4 settings and it
helped quite a lot.
• Because of all the reviews first thing I tested was the clip and I can see why it can break very easily. The spring is too strong for the thin plastic.
I will update in a few months and let everyone know how things are going. For now if you are iffy about it, just grab them, but I can only speak for PS4 and ATH-M40X owners. I don't think you will be disappointed.
***UPDATE - 5/22/18***
I should preface all of this review (old and update) by stating that I am not a daily gamer. I probably play 10-20hrs per week, but I use these every session whether playing online or lone wolf. This mic has been perfect. I have had no issues with it yet. People can hear me crystal clear and the control works great. There are only two things I wish were different, but this is me looking for issues where there are none. In other words, it's my preference. I wish the cord was a bit shorter - 3.5 ft would be plenty. Right now I have the excess nicely bundled with the Velcro strap the unit comes with. Also, I wish the 2.5mm end were a bit shorter. Luckily, in my setup I don't have to turn left much, but when I do it gets annoying when it rubs on my collar. That's it! Those are my only two complaints. Oh, I don't use the clip to attach to my shirt so the clip hasn't broken on me like others have stated, but I will agree that this part of the unit is flawed. There's too much tension in the spring. Couple that with cheap hard plastic that needs to be pulled back boom the clip will undoubtedly break on you sooner or later. Personally, I don't think it's a big deal to just not use the clip. As I previously mentioned, I am not rough with any of my electronics or corded devices and tend to baby them, so this is a case by case bases for the reviews, I guess.
I will update one more time by the end of the year and see if they still hold up.
Although the braided fabric wrap over the cable gives it a rich look and feel, this was actually a poor design choice. The roughness of the fabric rubs on my shirt collar with the slightest head movement. This generates many comments from others on conference calls to go on mute when not talking. I'm told it sounds like sandpaper on wood. After trying every position possible for the cable clip with no success, the only way to stop the problem is to bring the cord up from my left ear and drape it over my head to the right. That makes it tough to get to the mic mute switch without making a lot of noise. This would be a much better product with a smooth vinyl cover on the cable.
If kept past the return period, I'll try putting some smooth shrink wrap over the upper section of cord.
UPDATE: Shortly after the above review the microphone just quit working right in the middle of an important presentation over Skype with an audience of executive management types. In the time it took me to switch to a phone, the momentum was lost and the presentation failed.
