Corsair Raptor HS40 - Great until they break.

Daniel P., Newegg
1 January 2016
  • Summary: Not Recommended! Would not buy again.
  • Pros: Sound quality was good until they broke. Fairly comfortable fit. Affordable.
  • Cons: These broke after one year of daily use. The inline volume control is poorly designed, it's bulky and located in just the right spot where it gets snagged on everything. After these broke i took apart the volume control, the tiny wires have no slack and are barely soldered so any sort of snagging...

Don't buy

Michael A., Newegg
8 December 2015
  • Summary: Filed a RMA with Corsair but they want me to pay out of pocket to mail them in while pushing strict package rules upon me. Never buying from this brand again.
  • Pros: Good sound, when it doesn't short out or BSOD my PC. Relatively comfortable.
  • Cons: Volume control has a short, which disconnects the headset and occasionally causes a hardware-based BSOD. Used this headset maybe 5 hours in the last year.

7 December 2015

  • Pros: The sound quality is okay.
  • Cons: The microphone constantly sounds like someone is blowing into it and you can not make out anything anything you are saying.

Corsair HS40

Clenard M., Newegg
13 September 2015
  • Summary: IF I had known this little piece of information, I would have went with a different set, but as no one had mentioned it, I got them. OS compatibility for virtual surround should be a primary concern for a company that NORMALLY makes really good gear.
  • Pros: Souonds great, more or less. (Explain below) Fits my big melon. Nice quality mic
  • Cons: Only 1 con as of this moment, and it is a MASSIVE one.. Corsair, in their brilliance, have not came up with a Windows 10 driver for it you. So, instead of surround, you have basic headset with mic.

Skip this headset.

Nick S., Newegg
19 August 2015
  • Pros: Worked fine until it broke.
  • Cons: Terrible construction. I purchased this head set less than 4 months ago and one of the ear pieces broke off. This product was used VERY gently in that time period. I have a big boy job and I can't game as much as I would like. Would not recommend.

Scrapped in 3 months

Juan M., Newegg
3 August 2015
  • Summary: Overall a really nice headset for the price, but I just cant recommend it due to the phones' internals messing up and causing errors so soon into its lifespan. Would get 4 stars if it had lasted a year or two.
  • Pros: USB connection very sleek and smooth finish nice looking headset sound quality was nice, but not great cord length is just right
  • Cons: USB connection error as reported by others within 3 months of use Uncomfortable for long periods of use

Very Dissapointed

Anonymous, Newegg
20 July 2015
  • Summary: Skip this one. I was recommended to buy Corsair products by a friend of mine. Will not be doing so again.
  • Pros: Comfortable Good sound Mic is bothersome at first. Friends hear echoes and static, but it wasnt hard to fix. Really Good design.
  • Cons: Upon one day of usage, I found that the power to the headset will cut out in regular fashion. I get the error that the usb port cant supply enough power to the headset, but it cuts off every time i slightly move the cord (or straighten it out.) This has occured with all 3 devices I have used it o...

I Wouldn't

Paul P., Newegg
4 July 2015
  • Summary: It has some qualities and if you can tame and save the wire. they are not too bad.
  • Pros: Good for watching TV. The Volume/Mute button is nice. Mic is clear.
  • Cons: - Cable went bad after 6 months of use. Right above the volume/mute button. - Low bass. - Awful for music - Meh for games. - Wire wanted nothing more than to tangle up.
