Summary: I have owned the headset for 18 months. Just a couple months ago, the microphone started to get loose - instead of ratcheting into place vertically as it is supposed to do, it would start to slip, until eventually it could no longer stay vertically in place when not in use. After that it started to get wobbly and after that it eventually broke clean off, hanging by just the wires. This headset was for my use at home on my desktop only and did not travel.
Face eating hunk of plastic junk that wants to be a plushy, but was made as a headset.

Summary: Bought these about 6 months ago for $41 or so, glad I didn't pay more, wish I would've gone with a different headset all together. Pros: -Ear cups are comfy. -Mic works fine Cons: -Heavy [I usually take them off after about 30 minutes due to neck strain] -Bulky [I hope you don't expect to wear these in public, or don't mind the look of having a headset that is trying to engulf your face from each side] -Low sound quality [lacks bass, sound not terrible but nothing some...
Summary: Bought these headphones after reading the reviews, but I couldn't get a pair to work like they should. On the first headset the mic was so quiet you had to yell to get any volume. They got returned for a second set that picked up my voice great, but at the cost of tremendous amounts of white noise. I tested these against other headsets and microphones just to make sure it wasn't my PC setup.
Such a great headset but this has a lifetime of about 2 months.

Summary: Well the headset was perfect everything i wanted in a gaming headset, I bought the original USB headset first, after about 2 months the wire cord stopped working and i had to move it around to hear anything then it just broke altogether, instead of sending it back to corsair i decided to buy the HS1A Analog headset. A month of using The HS1A the exact same problem occurred, Corsair makes such a good revolutionary headset but can't get such a major thing right.
Excerpt: The headset is comfortable and comes with pleather pads so you can switch out the cloth ones.Mic performs fine for vent and other voice chat programs. Explosions in-game are also weak for the cost of this headset.The Bass is flat and sound good quality is not where it need to be. Wish i went with a different gaming headset, this pair fails to reside up to my 2yr old ุ headset.
Summary: Jag har använt dessa nu i 2 veckor och måste säga att jag är väldigt besviken. Jag läste recensioner om dessa innan jag köpte dom, och dom har fått bra betyg. Jag förstår verkligen inte hur dom kan ha fått det. Ljudet är riktigt dåligt och platt. Mjukvaran som följer med är bara onödigt komplicerad och ingen av inställningarna gör ljudet direkt bättre.. snarare sämre och burkigare.
