Summary: Really awesome headset. I went from a TB HPA2 to these. I can hear so much more when playing Titanfall. I was really surprised how well the surround works. It took me a little while to get used to the fit but I like it now. And got an amazing deal on eBay!!
Great headset. Surround sound is godly, mic is godly. Plug into USB 2.0.
5 August 2013
Summary: I am writing this about 3 hours after the headset came. There was a small problem with a fuzzy/crackling noise every couple of minutes but that was easily fixed by switching the USB plug into a USB 2.0 port. The surround sound is godly and works great with Battlefield 3 (only game I've tested so far) and also HQ movies. Awesome headset that is very comfortable out of the box but needs a little time I assume to fit perfectly to your head.
Summary: I was very nervous about purchasing this headset, as I've never paid so much for a pair before, but honestly, it was worth every penny, and I wish I would have known about this headset sooner! I spend a lot of time on the computer regularly; I play games and skype with friends, and I needed something that could hold up to every day usage while also being comfortable. I finally hit the jackpot with this headset!
Summary: I don't normally write reviews, but I felt as though I was obligated to write one. I game quite a bit and was looking for a 7.1 surround sound gaming headset. I play for fun though and didn't need the "true" surround sound. The sound and perfect and the comfort in amazing. The moment I started talking to my friends they knew the headset had came because of the crystal clear mic quality.
Summary: As my first headset, I'm quite happy. I bought this headset based off of what tomshardware had to say about it, which was in short, they spent the budget on the basics: 50mm drivers, a good frame and a good mic. There's a link provided to download the drivers, otherwise only the speakers will work.
Great Headset, "Dolby Headphone" Reduces Audio Fatigue
19 December 2012
Summary: I purchased this because I needed a quality headset that supports Dolby Headphone. I get what is called "audio fatigue" which is where I will start to get a headache or become motion sick when playing games if the stereo sound only comes from one channel or another. What the "Dolby Headphone" technology does is it simulates a room and bounces the left/right audio around so you hear it with both ears the way you do in real life rather than having all the audio on your...
Summary: These headphones are great! I've had them for 8 months now and they are still going strong. The software on Corsairs website for this product is really easy to use. The customization is also fun to play with (EQ and surround settings) I can be playing Rift or WoW while in team speak and listening to music at the same time and everything is crisp sounding with deep bass. Also feel very comfortable and lightweight.
Summary: Okay, so, because super long reviews kind of annoy me, I'm just going to list the pros and cons and then a small summary. PROS: - REALLY durable. This is probably the most durable feeling headset I have ever owned. - The physical features are amazing! The volume +/- switch is really convenient and the mic mute button has a nice feature -- the LEDs glow red instead of blue if your mic is muted! - The earmuffs are made of memory foam and a fuzzy cloth material.
