  • Summary: I got these for free on a promo deal on their corsair vengeance k95 keyboard. Personally, I would not have picked them up, but since I have them, I will use them.
  • Pros: The speakers they used are pretty good and the construction of the muffs are fairly comfortable. They come with 3.5mm jacks, but have an adapter to make them USB usable. Independent volume controls for each ear.
  • Cons: The blinking blue light. It can't be turned off, it blinks fairly fast and is a brilliant blue color. It's horrible... especially if you're playing a game in a dark room. It actually got somewhat painful to have it connected. The mic was very quiet out of the box... when I jacked it up enough to ...

A pair of headphones

6 December 2013
  • Summary: Tape over the LED, MAYBE the mic is usable with tons of boosting, but still pretty bad quality. The audio alone is very good
  • Pros: -Sound quality is quite good. -Cord is extremely long. -USB option -Carrying Case(Though I wouldn't wear these outside)
  • Cons: -The mic would be better excluded, it is totally and completely useless. -Never received rebate. -Software is not user friendly -Constant blue flashing LED. The maker of these headsets got bought out, and Corsair doesn't seem to be improving any of the problems.

Surprised

Rod T., Newegg
6 November 2013
  • Summary: I took a gamble on this headset as it was on-sale for $40 with a $30 mail-in rebate. Corsair processed the rebate extremely fast (within 1 month turnaround for those interested).
  • Pros: I've been using this headset as my main headset for a couple of months now and I'm surprised by the level of the quality of the headset. The quality of the audio is a major plus for this headset and the volume control is quite easy and convenient. The headset itself is extremely comfortable and d...
  • Cons: Microphone level is extremely quiet out of the box. I had to boost the audio levels anywhere from 20-30 db in order for whatever was being spoken to be audible. Tested it in programs like TeamSpeak3/Steam and, with the boost, the microphone was offering pretty good quality. Just make sure that th...

Microphone quality is atrocious

Nathaniel T., Newegg
6 September 2013
  • Summary: I originally got this headset as a replacement for my broken X11. Unfortunately the microphone on these are not that great and I have to plug in the microphone part of the X11 and lay it on my desk so I can talk to people in various chat programs.
  • Pros: - Sound quality is great. - Headset feels well made and sturdy. - Ear pieces are comfy.
  • Cons: - Mic is just horrible. I'm told that it sounds like I'm talking in another room or far away from my mic.

Decent Headset

Sean D., Newegg
29 July 2013
  • Summary: Bought this as a replacement of a cheaper headset that lasted me ~3 years. I like it, but do wish the Mic was better. Sound quality is quite nice. Never got my rebate, which is annnoying.
  • Pros: Overall decent headset. Quite loud and comfortable, blocks a lot of outside noise, comes with carrying case, and good sound quality
  • Cons: The Mic sucks. As in, no one can understand you at all. Nor do I think it is just me who has had this problem. That being said, I have a webcam mic, so it wasn't a problem. The software it uses can be bothersome

  • Cons: Squeeze Head Uncomfortable for long periods of time Microphone is not all that great Left ear speaker is lower volume then right one when all the way up Left ear when turned all the way to right below full volume... the ear piece loses audio

Good sound, bad mic

Rami H., Newegg
29 June 2013
  • Summary: Great if you don't plan to use the mic too much. I would recommend something else.
  • Pros: The sound is great. I'm not an audiophile, but this was a great step up from my $20 headphones before this.
  • Cons: The mic is terrible. People say it sounds like the first ever radio, or like I'm playing in a bathroom or cave. Makes it hard for people to hear you in game over other noises. Also, weight. It's not so bad at first, but after about an hour you'll notice just how heavy it is.
