I think the quality control on the zalman is bad or something, because all the people I know who have one are fine with it, but others have ones that don't pick up sound well at all or have a lot of static.

Must be. Everyone raves about it. After seeing this video, I was really impressed with the audio quality from the thing. Sounds better than any headset mic I've used.

And some people probably don't know how to turn on microphone boost.

Best headset in the market. That still, you still better off going headphone + external mic. It's a beyerdynamic DT770 32 ohm + boom mic.

Doesn't sound as clear as you would hope. I didn't really like mine all that well. Like some have said, it could be an issue with quality control.
