Comfy & cheap

I got these a while ago and have been using them both on my PC and Xbox 360 (with an adaptor)

They are absolutely fine for games but you do notice a lack of bass. I'm not just talking about when listening to music - I have other headphones for that - but if I'm playing something like BF3 - it'd be nice if explosions sounded better. I know it's not the game's SFX at fault. one thing that is good is the ability to hear other people's voices over the game, works really well and isn't obtrusive.

The mic is spot on though, very clear and doesn't get in the way.

The actual headphones are reallly comfy, I can wear them for hours. They don't hurt your ears.

Would recommend you change to the leather ear bits provided, improves the bass response slightly.

This product arrived today, as usual perfect service from OCuk!
What can I say about this headset... For the price? AMAZING! It IS a steal for 30 quid.
I was a bit skeptical in the beginning since the reviews mentioned a lack in bass... OK let me tell you: These headphones DO NOT LACK BASS! All frequencies are there, even the bass is there but it's NOT BOOMY!
IF you are used to Boomy-sounding headphones then don't bother, go get something else. Whoever noted that these do not produce bass notes, well what can I say, they are most likely deaf ( I can't blame them because most headphones have a louder bass)! HS1A headphones reproduce very well all your sounds, even music and movies.
The unit is exactly as advertised: clean and tight bass (linear frequency curve), and very good mids and highs.
This is nearly high-end headphones, These babies could have easily been sold for double their price, even more expensive!
Very good job from Corsair, amazing product and pricing

Bargain Audio

I was looking around for a decent headset that was cheap, had good speaker drivers and was built well... these are perfect.

I'm not an audio fanatic but I definitely like decent audio (Asus Xonar DX soundcard and Audioengine A2 speakers), and I highly recommend these for the price. No they didn't blow me away when listening to music, but they are still very good.

When it comes to gaming, these things are great. I hear more sounds than ever, the audio positioning is excellent and voice over teamspeak is clear. The mic is very good also.

If you have a dedicated soundcard, get these. If not then get the USB version. The only thing I couldn't really acheive was a surround sound effect, although as mentioned audio positioning is great.

Xonar settings I use are soft rock, gx on and dolby headphone.

No Base

Purchased these to use in place of my old headphones (Technics) and my cheap little microphone.

The only good about this product is the microphone.

As for the headphones, they sound weak. There is no base whatsoever, even plugged these into my Hi-Fi to check and the base response is not there. The sound is flat and "tinny" my walkman in-ear headphones are superior.

Only buy these if you want a good microphone and aren't bothered about sound quality.

Pretty decent

Bought these to replace the Creative Fatality gaming headphones and they are quite a step up.

I originally intended to get the Sennheisser 330/350s but after a bit of research a lot of people suggested these were a decent but half price equivalent. While I can't compare the two as I have never owned the 330/350s, the build and the sound quality from the Corsair are excellent for the price and they aren't even broken in yet.

Fair review

As a proffesional PC gamer, i need a headset which performs and i can say this headset certainly does.

Firstly, the most outstanding microphone i have ever used, it is just so perfectly clear, you cannot go wrong with it. It cancels 99.9% of background noise.

Secondly, the sound quality is very good. Crisp and clear sound allows me to hear team mates on TS3, Game sounds and music all at the same time.

Now for the downsides. The sound is only good with a decent soundcard, if you do not have a high quality card, there is just no point in getting this headset because the default sound is lackluster. Also, you have to use the fake leather padding, otherwise sound just dont feel good enough.

The in-line control has no clip to attach to clothing, so it ends up hanging which can be abit annoying.

On a side note, my pair only lasted 2 months before it turned faulty. In order to get any use out of the mic, i have to bend the cable and tape it. Im still awaiting support from OCUK.

Excellent

Brilliant for gaming. Rich crisp and sharp sounds combining it with Xfi. Lacks deep base but it's still enjoyable. Very comfortable to wear, doesn't hurt your head at all. You just cant argue with this for the price. Arrived as promised within 2 business days TY OC! Service 5/5. I got these mainly for music which is why I gave them a 4/5 but for you gamers looking for a bargain these are a must. For in-game audio I would have given these a 5/5.

So Comfy!

A very comfy headset with great sound, although I do agree with comments regarding the headset's lack of bass.

However, after switching to the leather ear pads and enabling the 'bass boost' in Windows 7 sound configuration, they rumbling my ear drums.

Well worth the money.

 
Ian Barrons 2011-09-01

Very Nice

Impressed by the quality!! Heavy but nice when planted on your head. Great sound connected to x-fi sound card. Highly recommend.

 
Max Megeary 2011-08-31

Perfect

This is the perfect headset to pair with an Asus Xonar DG, for an excellent budget combo.
Everything about this product is top notch -- even the packaging is brilliant.
It doesn't feel heavy even after long sessions.
I'm really trying but I just can't fault it! At

Peaceful fragging and no Nagging

After constantly getting nagged about waking the house up playing games using my old 5.1 Altec Lansing speakers, I got a pair of these as a birthday present.

Sound production is just excellent, and like good ear defenders blocks the unwanted external noise, but you can still hear when you need to (For us oldies, baby crying, doorbell, phone etc).

Can't comment on the mic, as I don't listen to myself, but I've had no complaints.

Price wise these can't be beat really. I've tried others in this price bracket, but these are the comfiest and best sounding in all.

Get some!

Better than Senny PC350 by far

Had the Sennheiser PC 350 before these and the sound quality is like night and day.

The sound that these produce just sounds so much richer and the build quality is much higher. Glad I returned the Senny's and got these.

Best of all, theyre half the price.

 
Thurstan Johnston 2011-04-22

Fantastic headset!!

These headphones are the best I have used. They are very comfortable, the earpieces dont touch your ears so you get a better sound and very comfy to wear. Excellent audio quality, really does make gaming a more fun experience. Highly recommended

Precision Audio

Got these a few days ago to replace broken Creative Fatality HS-800. These are miles ahead in terms of clarity compared to the Creatives. Using these with a Xonar D1 and Dolby Headphone and you can really hear sounds in 3 dimensions. Great for FPS Games.

I don't think I'm going to be using them to listen to music thought as the bass seems a little lacking. But they may just need a little more time to burn in.

Awesome

Recieved mine yesterday. It's replaced my old creative gaming headset which lasted me just over 2 years before the cord was all twisted up and cut up. Hopefully this Corsair will last longer as the braided cord should prevent the tears to the lead. The ear pieces are also replaceable should outlive my last headset

The sound is brilliant using the Asus DG 5.1 card, the mic is also good for ventrilo/ts

5 stars

Was blown away with what real sound is supposed to be like as soon as i put them on. I have them plugged into my asus d2x card and was astonished at the clarity, and how comfy these were A must buy

 
Paolo 2011-02-26

great

I got them 2 days ago and i use it for gaming , i added a asus xonar dg5.1 dolby, and the sound is great. they are a bit low on bass ,but with the xonar mixer you can balance a bit, i like the crispy sound. circular hear pad nice and comfy. i would reccomend it maybe with a bigger sound card,if you have the cash.

 
Lugzan 2011-02-25

Best.

Simply the best.

>From the second you put them on you'll hear the difference between real sound and the crap you've doubtless heard for years,
these 'near - audiophile' grade headsets are comfortable, light have brilliant sound response and almost mute the outside world, you can hear your own heartbeat over cars driving past your window, literally and won't break your bank doing it.
buy them.
