breaks behind ear guaranteed - 3 out of 3 headsets
James R Baker, Amazon
4 August 2013
Summary: so, I chose this headset because I get headaches with regular headsets when they pinch in below the ear. I have become a fan of corsair over time due to their mechanical gaming keyboards and simple yet perfect mice for my gaming style and hand. I bought this headset 15 months ago. The first time it cracked it was still in the year warranty for headsets (about 9 months in). It cracked just behind the ear where the plastic bends up to become a straight line.
Summary: The quality of sound is amazing and the cord not being the typical rubbery plastic is a great idea. However, the mold for the band is awful! It's so tight and possibly fatigued. I owned two pair within a month and they both snapped in two at the right side of the ear. I know its nothing I'm doing wrong. It's just a poor design not to allow the mold to be flexible with wear. If Corsair get that issue fixed and I'll gladly buy them again.
Summary: Don't buy these unless they are to put on your mantle to look at. I was shocked when they broke with so little use and I shocked to read reviews like mine all over the internet. I was not able to get them replaced, as of yet. Because they are broken - ME has to do an RMA on them in order to replace them...this has been an overall BAD experience rendering me headset-less and out $40 for about a week now...IPR waste of money in this case.
Pros: Sound Quality
Cons: Weak headband broke within 4 sessions use.
Hardly adjustable and highly uncomfortable to wear.
Summary: Do not make the mistake I did buying this headset. This is not the product you are seeking, I would recommend taping paper cups to your ears and using wool string over this trash of a headset. You will have issues getting refunded by memory express with these.
Pros: Sound Quality.
Cons: -Constructed with pasta noodles, numerous cases of them breaking first month/use. I personally got about 4 sessions out of them.
-Not adjustable at all. This includes the mic that is either sitting on my lips in my nose or in front of my eye.
-Claim to be comfortable for "long internet sessions" HAHAHAHA last I checked people were online for more than 20 minutes at a time. These things HURT my ears after about 1/2 hour.
-Designed by mongos that should stick to...
Summary: Owned for 3 days, broke on 4th. snapped by the ear rendering the headset totally useless. I returned it to memory express, they contacted the manufacturer and shipped them back for warranty nearly 3 weeks ago.
Pros: Great sound.
Great mic quality.
Plug and play.
I really liked them..
Cons: Broke in 4 days. badly engineered with poor materials.
