Summary: This product works as advertised and has good headphone sound and good microphone recording but it just weighs too much for a behind the neck headset making it uncomfortable for any decent length of time. Also, if you have a medium to large sized head, the material is not easily flexible and can put a noticeable amount of force on your ears.
Summary: This was a mistake on my part as I am usually good at buying gaming gear. These hurt my ears and gave me a headache too. On the other end, I was told my voice sounded clear. However, I ended up giving this headset away as I was too lazy to return it having ripped the packaging open and all. I gave it to my boyfriend and at times the mic would be perfectly fine but sometimes it would amplify his breathing by A LOT as well as other background noises.
Worked well, if not comfortable, right up until the ear piece snapped off.

Summary: Pros: Good sounds and very good mic Easy to setup Cons: No adjustment for fit Causes tops of earlobes to hurt after wearing for any period of time. Right arm of headset snapped off while removing from my head. I wasn't forceful with it, this was well within reasonable stress of removing the headset from my head. Update 22/01/2012: I will say Corsair has good customer service. Contacted customer support, and they sent me an RMA number with no fuss.
Summary: You know, I don't use these headphones as much as I thought I would. The sound quality is fine, but the fit isn't. While I think many will find these are very comfortable, my ears don't feel the same way! For that reason, I am giving these three stars. As far as positives go, I do like the quality and the sleek 'look' of these headphones. The headset isn't too far away or too close, either. The cons? Purely subjective-- the fit.
Summary: I really wanted to like this headset - Corsair has a fairly good brand name for me at least - producing great memory products. The headset itself produces fairly awesome sounds from games and music. The microphone itself was just ok - I was able to carry on Skype conversations and it did pick up my heavy breathing, which sucked. The big complaint is the fit of the headphones. It's not adjustable and that after about 30 minutes, they started to hurt my ears.
Summary: These came in one of those plastic things that you have to fight with to get the headphones out, however once I got them out things looked better. The package included headphones, the USB adapter, and a bag to carry everything. The headphones work with any computer with Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The cord and USB are good heavy cords with a volume control.
Summary: The plastic bit that goes round the back of your head just doesn't have enough bend in it and keeps on breaking. They sound great, are comfy (when the frame in intact) and the mic seems decent, but that damn frame lets them down.
Summary: Got these because a magazine reviewed them very positively. What the magazine review doesnt take into account is wearing them long term and these are not built to last and they will, probably sooner than later, snap making them unwearable. The 3 stars is all for sound quality which is very good but the sound drivers that make the sound so good are also heavy and thats really where having made the head band out of twiglets lets the whole concept down.
