Has anyone tried the Warren Gregoire headsets?

I see them in ads in QST but know nothing about them; are they good? Are they crap?

Price seems right.

This might not be the cheapest solution as this is a video editing headset geared to the professional market. It is priced around EUR 80.00, but there is a gaming version available with a lower price tag. The only difference from what I recall is that the gaming version is black.
