Summary: They work just fine! these are great headphones if you want to listen to music or even play games. I play CS:GO with these and on a competitive level they work great! The sound is nice and crisp and the volume can be louder than you will ever need.
Summary: I recently purchased this headset for myself for gaming purposes. One friend recommended it to me and I was anxious every day until it came in the mail. This product works beautifully with my PC and I love it. The sound quality is far better that my old headset, as well as the microphone. I did notice after my first 3-hour session of wearing them, my left ear especially hurt. I quickly fixed this problem with readjusting them every 1.5 hours or so.
Summary: This headphones are the best!!! i have a big head and the build quality is exceptional. Cable is threaded with some sort of syntethic fiber but makes it look elegant. The plugs are neat. Mic is superb quality. The volume control and mute on/off is neat. Super extra large cable. Memory foam is confortable. The "leather parts" are not leather... is somewhat syntethic... but is good! I recommend this!!!
Summary: I've owned lots of headphones, from cheap dollar store check out lane phones to some really nice sonys and sennheisers. These headphones are really my favorite. I was amazed at the size of these when I received them. Huuuge. But so soft and comfortable. They sound amazing too, and the microphone is just a cherry on top. I didn't really need a mic, but it's cool to have and flips neatly back and I forget it's even there.
Summary: I shopped around and looked at many different headsets and eventually settled with this one, the 1300. It's comfortable to wear, the mic works great, absolutely zero static as some others may have reported. I am hooked into an ASUS Xonar sound card. Everything sounds crystal clear, games, movies, music. Corsair makes great products, and these are definitely one of them.
Summary: Quick overview of what I liked and didn't like: LIKES: +Comfortable (seems to be preference. It is rather bulky I supposed and it weighs a bit on your head, but I don't notice it at all +Sounds great +Extremely durable (I throw it around and I know I shouldn't, but wow it takes a beating.
Summary: First I want to point out something in the description of this headset. "you'll hear the subtle MIDBAND positional cues that you need to enjoy accurate 3D audio and play your best." I think people really miss this part. This basically states that the headset is tuned to really push out the mid-range frequencies more than anything else. This means less bass and less treble. Bass especially can very easily drown out the rest of your sound frequencies....
Summary: Amazing! The ear cups are super comfortable the microphone can bend and they can rotate 45 degrees to rest on your shoulder during breaks. The cable is also long going at 10ft. I recommend this to anybody looking for a nice sleek gaming headset for prolonged gaming.
