Good, just not great.

Rodney Merrill, Amazon
25 May 2014
  • Summary: These headphones are very comfortable. I game sometimes for hours at a stretch. I do not have a sound card, which would definitely improve the performance, but found the sound to be clear and enjoyable. The headphones died after about nine months of use. I contacted Corsair and received a replacement in three days. Incredible customer service. I will continue to support Corsair just for their customer service.

Corsair is awesome.

  • Summary: I love the customer support from Corsair as I've never had any problems with them. Their products are exactly as I thought for the monies. Most of the time I just wait out for a promotion they have and purchase their products as needed! Thank you.

Poor Build Quality

Bryan J. Schaefer, Amazon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: Like several others have commented, the build quality is really low. My use case: I don't have a surround sound setup for my PC, so I use one jack for my stereo speakers and two more for this headphone and mic. This thing never got unplugged from my computer once it was purchased, and the PC hardly ever moved except to clean a couple times a year. Needless to say, zero stress on the cables. As of November, just a few months past the warranty, the right speaker went out.

Great quality audio, but the headband failed and cracked.

M. Thompson, Amazon

  • Summary: This headset was fantastic while it lasted. Two things, you need to have some extra EQ software on your computer to really get the full dynamic range of this headset, but once you do you get full and rich low end, warm mids, and sparkly highs. The sound of these cans is just incredible. That being said, after owning them for about two years, the headband just kind of disintegrated and fell apart by cracking.

  • Summary: I experienced same problems as others. After 2 years started getting sound problems and blips, unless I'd wiggle the wire.

Headset

Karen Fleming, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought it for my son-in-law for Christmas. He is good with his stuff but the wire developed a brake very easily (they don't have kids) and he ended up tossing them out. Need better cords on these.

AWESOME, but...

NE14AJ, Amazon

  • Summary: I got these at Xmas time, 2011. I LOVED THEM. They were so comfortable, you could use them for hours and have no complaints. The fidelity of the sound is really impressive. The mic neatly folds away when you don't want to use it. The cord is like 8 feet long and gives you an enormous amount of freedom. BUT, there is a piece-of-crap plastic in-line volume control and mic mute feature about 3 feet from where the cord connects to the headpiece.

Too heavy - not comfortable over long periods of time

A.M., Amazon
26 July 2013
  • Summary: I've been using these for work since I bought them in 2011. They're 3 months shy of 2 years old and the mic abruptly went out today. I will not be buying another pair. I use the headset for both phone calls and music. I like the noise canceling but the weight isn't worth it. They fit fine over my ears but the strap on the top, although padded, is highly uncomfortable after an hour and I have to start shifting the band back and forth so it rests on another part of my...

Amazing sounding headset, but not very comfortable!

JeffW, Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: I picked up this headset for gaming and unfortunately had to return this set to Amazon because of the comfort and mic issues. Build Quality: The build quality of this headset was really good the ear cups were very soft and well made. Microphone: The microphone on this headset gave me some issues when trying to use this. I tried it several times and everytime I used it, the quality was poor.
