Summary: Snaps easily, I have had this headset for a few months and it has already snapped behind the ear. I bought the exact same one and the exact same thing happened. I treat my headset well and really wanted to use this (it is comfortable). Save your money.
Summary: I expected much more for the price. The sounds quality is Ok (do not expect wonders), but they broke after a year of light usage. In fact, they broke two months after a year has passed so no warranty for me. A year for a higher-end gaming headset? Really? Thank you Corsair.
Summary: The headset has a very good sound quality and I really like it from that perspective. Unfortunately it broke after only 6 months of intermittend use on the left side just above the left ear - and I only used it for video conferencing.
Summary: I got this headset because the reviews on sound quality and recommendations for corsair equipment were all pretty good. But once they arrived I found that the headset is NOT adjustable at all. The mic boom turns and bends like one would expect but the headset itself is fixed.
breaks behind ear guaranteed - 3 out of 3 headsets

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.
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.
