Sound is Very Good

Got them on offer so happy with price for excellent build quality. Quick pro/cons:
Pro is the sound difference from my 2.1 speakers. Very clear and as long as users change settings in supplied software then bass is more than satisfactory. Tested with BF3 and rifle fire, explosions etc all sounded like they should. The 7.1 surround is also very effective and the advantage online is quite surprising. Situational awareness increases a lot, no more getting sneaked upon by knife wielding commandos!

Cons: The comfy (that a pro) material on the ear cups can make the ears/head warm after a while. Something I didn't expect.
Also, you can't just plug in the USB during a game/video as you would a normal speaker jack. If using Win7 (I think Vista too) then set the cans as default speaker to get around it. XP users are screwed as they have to install drivers each time and would be better off with the analogue version (HS1A).

Overall very pleased and recommend.

Sound was great, but...

The sound was great, however I had to send them back due to comfort reasons. The one I recieved was far too tight. Talking with it on felt like talking with my hands tightly covering my ears! Also the microphone wasn't too good, everyone I used it with complained about it.

Going on the other reviews it's possible I was just unlucky

Keep my money--you've earned it!

Bought these today at LITS on the advice of an Overclockers staff member. That was some damn good advice--for the money these things are an absolute steal. Great sound (sharp detail and response; bass accurate but may need to be manually upped), good volume, comfortable to wear. Excellent in games, and also for music and YouTube. They work right out of the box, but install the included driver and you get a whole range of options to improve your experience. Definitely worth the cash!

Great gaming headset

Brought this on the web exclusive sell. I can say these are way better than my old Creative Fatal1ty, they are miles apart. I would highly recommend these to any one.

Great stuff

I've never given a stuff about audio quality, but after getting a new PC I thought it was time for my five-year-old

These are so light on your head you really do forget your wearing them, what also makes this true is when you have the 8 channel & 7.1 virtual enabled you have the feeling the speakers are around the room and not close to you ears...perfect for black ops!

Carl 2011-07-12


Got mine today, was very impressed :)
Good Job OC as allways

Chris 2011-02-16


Without proper research I purchased the Steelseries H5v2 no knowing how totally taliored it was to games so much that music/video sounded kinda nasty.

I took the extra plunge to fork out for a set of these.
O.M.G this is by far the best headset I have ever purchased. Easy to install, the audio options are plenty to tune to how you like it and the dolby effects really do make it sound like your listening to a home theater system.

These are da bomb! Corsair know they have a good reputation, these headphones enforce that even further.

As usual next day on time delivery from OCUK <3

Simple, these are by far the best headphones I have ever had.
Sound Quality is amazing,
10 hours wearing them and although they are large I forgot I had them on. Don't think about these any longer just get them and see the smile on your face.

cracking Audio

The best Audio on a set of cans I think I have heard. I mean compared to others wrround this price point, nothing compares, You can hear everything whilst Gaming on cod Black Ops.

I also listened to some awesome tunes, and heard things that I have not heard before.

Buy these, concerned about pricing as competitors are selling

Amazing headset

Amazing headset. Better than my Sennheiser and Creative Fatal1ty headsets. Solid bass and fantastic 5.1 audio effects. Comfortable for all day use. Bendable mic is a nice touch. Easy software. Only usb cable to plug in.

Mike 2010-11-24


Simply fantastic.

Build quality is fantastic.
Sound quality is great (even for stereo/ music listening - rare for surround gaming sets)
Also, the blue illuminated buttons make in game adjustment much quicker and easier.

The software is also a doddle to install and use, and the comfort level is unreal.

Best headset I've ever bought.
