Summary: These sound great and the microphone works superbly, BUT the cable breaks after awhile and then you end up with either the mic or and earphone going and although Corsair will exhange them under warranty with little hassle you still have to ship them to Holland and wait for the replacements. So far I have had about 8 pairs go wrong and that is why I have only given them 3 stars.
Summary: Saw this in the sale when looking for a new headset and decided to go for it. As usual with Amazon, it arrived quickly and well packaged. The headset itself is very well padded and looks quite nice. However, it is quite a large headset which I already gathered from reading reviews but it was a bit larger and bulkier than I expected and wasn't very comfortable to wear. The microphone sounded good and the sound quality was OK but lacking in bass.
Summary: But after what, 6 months, the wire going into the headset is playing up and needs to be help in a certain position to get sound now. Which results in having to wrap it around the ear piece having the wire pressing into my ear.. not the most comfortable anymore. I treated it like a baby, returned it to its stand after use and never mistreated it, yet the wiring has gone? bah.
Summary: Earphones and mic work fine but nothing special. Sound quality is no better than other cheap range headphones. We are on the second pair now as the first ones packed up after a few months. Amazon were excellent, as usual and replaced the dead ones. The ear cups are huge so your ears are well covered and outside noise is kept to a minimum.
Was impressed when I got it but over time the little things began to really annoy me.

Summary: When I first got these I was impressed with the quality of the mic and the sound coming out of them (I use a Xonar DGX sound card) was really good(ish). However, I knew that these where a little lacking on bass when I got them which I was fine with... I thought that with a headphone amp and an equalizer I could just raise the levels of the lows, Nope. There is absolutely no body to the sound, it's flat and there is almost no bass.
Summary: This is my first proper gaming headset, I read loads of reviews and really wanted a different model but it's not available anymore. This is pretty heavy like the other reviews say, it's fine for a couple of hours but I was playing for 3 or 4 hours last night and in the end stopped because my head actually hurt, like it bruised the very top of my head. Awesome sound though and they're not crazy expensive like my boyfriend's £100+ pair so I'm pretty happy with purchase.
Summary: At a low volume (on the headphones volume control) one ear is considerably louder than the other, when used at a higher volume i do not notice this problem. This could be limited to my own headphones though, however I don't have the time to RMA.
Summary: Köpte det här efter att mina gamla koss lurar blivit slitna efter 2 års flitigt användande. Ville kosta på lite mer på ett headset den här gången. +De här lurarna har bra ljud, mer bas och fylligare än mina gamla. Micken fungerar bra och jag hörs bra i skype. -Det negativa är sladden som när jag rör mig och den skrapar emot min tröja, vidarebefodrar en del av det ljudet så det hörs.
Summary: Im großen und ganzen ein recht brauchbares Headset. + Der Sound ist ganz in Ordnung, für meinen Geschmack etwas zu Bass-Lastig. + Recht gut verarbeitet, sehr solide, nichts wackelt, robustes Kabel. + Ohrmuscheln lassen sich um 90° nach außen schwenken. o Das Headset isoliert einem komplett von seiner Umgebung - sehe ich als neutral an kann erwünscht sein oder auch nicht. - Der gravierendste minus Punkt ist meiner Meinung das Mikrofon.
