Rated 1 out of 5 by turbodude555 Had to return mine
I can't rate this headset too highly, which is a shame because normal Corsair are my brand of choice. There was an audio fault that is certain, but they were also surprisingly uncomfortable and the sound was pretty poor (good be with the fault though). In the end I got the Corsair Void headset which is phenomenally good! If you're looking at these, I suggest those instead!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ramjet Comfortable, sounds good, build is good
Pleased with this headset:
* Insulates well against external sounds
* They are comfortable, a very good fit.
* Purchased so I could have an independent USB sound driver from Motherboard.
* Sound is very good.
* Build appears solid and feels solid
* Could not adjust mike to get to an optimum position near mouth , slightly low gain.
* A little hum noise when no sound being passed through, could be my system, not distracting.
A solid performer and great for immersion in games.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EctopicElm Great headphones - but let down by a poor in-line volume control
The headphones are well priced, comfortable and feature a good mic.
They do a very good job of blocking out exterior sound. And the sound they do deliver is perfectly good for gaming.
I bought these headphones because they offer an on-the-fly volume control built into in the headphone cable (although I prefer the Logitech roller bar adjuster system).
The problem with the Corsair cans is the fact that you will find yourself having to adjust game volume, PC master volume or YouTube volume to get you in the ballpark regerding the sound volume you need.
The headphone volume adjuster is good for fine-tuning, but the range is way too narrow to turn an overly loud sound down to acceptable levels, or to turn up an overly quiet input to decent levels.
If it wasn't for this the phones would get 4/5 - or even 5/5 if their relatively low cost is an important factor for you.
