I purchased these headphones after getting back into online PC gaming. I wanted a decent Headset that would sound good, be comfy for long periods and have a good quality built in microphone. The corsair's ticked all the boxes and was on offer at my local PC store so i bought them. The first thing I noticed was how comfy they were, they have deep padding and for me they are a good fit. They hold your head snuggly so they don't slip about but not too tight to be uncomfortable. Next thing you notice is when you play a game or some music... These go loud, very loud! The sound quality at all levels is very good and the virtual surround sound in games is comparable to a real 7.1 surround sound set up. They also have very good bass levels, they go deep and don't distort even at high volumes. In first person shooter games you can pin point where the enemy is via there foot steps or when they fire there weapon, the 7.1 surround is really that good. You can also adjust the sound via some downloaded software so if it's too bassy or to tinny for your liking its easy to sort out. It also has an inline volume control and a microphone mute button.
The microphone has some degree of noise cancelling built in so it is possible to play in a room where the TV is on or family members are talking but the only sound the mic pics up is your voice. For me this is important as I often play online with friends so being able to communicate with them while other members of my household are around is essential. I've owned these for almost a year and they still look and feel brand new, they are really well made. I would highly recommend this headset for PC Gamers or for listening to music as they sound great in stereo mode too. The software is easy to download and makes fine tuning the sound quality for your personal taste very simple. Great product at a fair price.
