Good, just not great.

Rodney Merrill, Amazon

  • 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.

Great till they weren't

William N., Newegg
18 August 2013
  • Summary: Not a bad value, lasted a good long time before breaking. The Dolby multi-channel effect was a little weak. Mic has no noise canceling effect.
  • Pros: Best headsets I'v owned, worked well for over 2 years. Fit my big head, and could ware them for hours in comfort.
  • Cons: The inline control box, It's not real useful and eventually killed caused stress on the mic cable the killed the headset.

comfortable and good sound quality, but not perfect

  • Summary: First, I am very happy with these head phones. They provide all the volume I need for gaming and watching movies. Their sound quality is very good as well. The microphone is very clear but it does pick up more ambient noise than I would expect for a stereo mic.

Decent Headset

Doug H., Newegg
11 May 2012
  • Summary: Kinda sad I had to see it go, but it is the reason why I keep a backup headset. Sad thing to see that an old Turtle Beach Ear Force X1 that I have had for 3+ years now and is held together with duct tape outlast this nice Corsair one.
  • Pros: It was good, got the job done and was comfortable. I swear by Corsair products.
  • Cons: Wires fried to the inside plastic.

Fair performance, poor mic.

Robert S., Newegg
16 April 2012
  • Summary: Overall, an excellent headset. I could recommend it to those who are casual gamers, and those that want to drown out the world. If you're looking for something to chat with you could do worse, but these aren't exactly the best things out there.
  • Pros: Good, overall, audio performance. Nice feeling on the ears, and very friendly for those with big heads.
  • Cons: Microphone is an utter failure. It picks up nothing, then everything, so you've got to be careful about how you position it.

Nice Headset

Dean, Amazon

  • Summary: Sounds good. Took a little effort to get the mic sounding right on TeamSpeak, the guys said I sounded muffled, but I got it sussed. They're heavier than I expected. I'm pretty sure my head is about a normal size (I'm 5'8" and 140lbs) and I find these to be pretty tight fitting.

Pretty comfortable so far

Kinnon Yee, Amazon

  • Summary: This pair of headset is pretty comfortable, however, I'd have to say that the insulation make them a bit hot at times. I wish the headset would allow you to have the mic on the right side. Overall, the headset works well and the wire is extra long and useful

Headset review

Alexander P., Newegg
4 December 2011
  • Summary: Overall I give this 4 eggs because its a great design but it's not perfect. They could've made it slightly lighter but I can't complain. Definitely worth the money, it's well built and feels like it will last a long time.
  • Pros: Just recently bought this headset when the price came down to about ~60$ and it was definitely worth the money. I'm not sure if I would pay 100$ though. Comfy headset with great quality sound.
  • Cons: Somewhat large and heavy, can get tight on your head after hours of gaming. I've gotten used to it and don't notice it as much anymore. Definitely larger than most gaming headsets though.

Some surprises

Thomas R., Newegg
30 November 2011
  • Summary: All in all, not bad. I was really hoping for different ear pad covers. The sound is amazing. It had the hair on the back of my neck standing up because it felt like someone was right behind me whispering in my ear. Not sure about the volume control being so far down on the cord.
  • Pros: The sound quality is excellent. It can take some setting up to tweak the setting just how you like it, but once you do you will hear things that you didn't know existed in songs you have heard 1000 times. The headset is also comfortable. It doesn't touch my ears at all. However, I'm not used to w...
  • Cons: I was a little surprised that the item I got wasn't the exact same as what was in the Newegg video review. That was the HS1A, and the HS1 I received didn't come with extra replaceable ear pads. The foam pads are comfy, but are cloth. I was hoping for leather or pleather, and the cloth seams to le...
