Summary: They cover your ears fairly good and do not hurt after hours of wear. If you like to hear the doorbell or phone ring, then these are great. The microphone is kinda limited on it's mobility but still does the job.
Summary: But item arrived DoA. Unfortunately, this is the only reason for 4 stars. Everything else was great. Bought as a gift, but used it for a bit myself. The earpieces covered my entire ear, and I am one to admit I have very large ears. The headset is lightweight, and sound quality was good. Definitely recommended -- just do not purchase over the Corsair site as they do not operate over the weekend and take unexpected days off.
Summary: Works nicely, the only thing I don't like is I sometimes step on the cable under my desk and it pulls my head, but that's a personal problem. Tight on the ears, but no too uncomfortable, its blocks a lot of incoming sound(sound cancelling), which was a surprise. I didn't expect it to muffle other sounds so much, but I like that. I'm no audiophile, but the sound is good. I cant hear and interference or static. Microphone is decent.
Summary: It is billed for "Intensive Gaming with Audiophile Quality", this is not true. It is definiately geared towards gamers and is great for that purpose. Listening to music however is a different story. First the good things. I am no audiophile, but it appears to have good high and mid range reproduction. I can tell that the large drivers are making a difference when compaired to my girlfriend's headset in that the sound is clear and crisp.
Summary: I am a novice gamer and bought this headset to enhance my gaming experiance. Totally worth the money, my only compliant is my head is bit large so they fit snug. These are also analog so if your soundcard is configured for plugs, this will be the best.
Summary: These will see constant (8+ hours per day) daily use in a business / call center environment and are replacing a similar, but cheap plastic pair that was cracking (literally...) under the pressure. Early results are very good. The flexible portion of the headband seems to be metal, and exhibits none of the creaking and popping sounds that the plastic one did.
Summary: These are a great pair of headphones. The sound quality is fantastic and they block out a lot of environment noise. The volume controls are very useful and convenient and the wire length is a good size. You are able to wear them for a long time as they are very comfortable. The only problem is you must be very careful with the wire as it is very weak and will break very easily. The wire itself is strong but the connections to the volume controls are fragile.
Summary: Comfort: 8/10 Sound Quality: 8/10 Build Quality: 9/10 I bought this after owning a £20 headset I got as a temporary measure. I looked at the more expensive Corsair Vengeance 1400 and Logitech G320 (Approx £50 each) however I settled on these and I was not dissapointed. They cost me £30 and all I can really say is, you can't go wrong with corsair.
