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.
comfortable and good sound quality, but not perfect
30 May 2012
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.
Summary: I bought these as an upgrade from a cheaper headset that was uncomfortable. These feel sturdier and are comfortable around the ears. Pros: -Pretty good audio quality, it meets my needs in gaming for now. -Sturdy construction -Built in mic and line-in volume and speech(mute) control.
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.
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
Summary: This is a fantastic multi-purpose headset. Great for movies, games, and music. When listening to music, you get some pretty low bass, but don't expect studio quality. Great if you are limited to owning 1 headset for traveling or other reasons.
Summary: As a PC gamer, I want great surround sound, crystal clear audio, and a clear microphone. I also wanted to be able to enjoy watching movies, listening to music, and playing games with them. Pros: -In my tests, I can say, the surround sound really works as claimed.
Summary: I ordered this headset after trying some other headsets and finding them lacking, either in build quality, sound quality, or both. I'm comparing the Corsair HS1A soundwise to Turtle Beach x11, $20 Sony headphones, Logitech 5.1 sound and Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10.
Summary: After one earphone died in my last Plantronics headset I decided it was time for a new headset and a move to the virtual 5.1/7.1 sound. I narrowed my search down to a couple of choices Razer's Megalodon, Steel Series Siberia V2 USB, Creative Labs Sound Blaster Tactic 3D and Corsair's HS1.
