1 out of 5 eggsbad from the start

Pros: fit and comfort

Cons: tons of static from mic when speaking (i was forced to put on my old headset so i can actually have a conversation without some complaining about the noise coming from the mic), sound is extremely hollow and unimpressive, also have a problem with it switch sound from stereo to one ear piece.

Other Thoughts: I installed these in my pc with a creative sound blaster x-fi extreme gamer sound card and all was ok except for the mic static, which is exceptionally loud with mic boost on(which u need on with this headset since no one can hear you without it). i paid 27 bucks for a cheap Log***ch headset which out does these a 1000 times over.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very comfortable when wearing. The headset feels to be pretty solid and doesn't seem like it would break after daily useage.

Cons: Microphone arm is very short, you have to talk very loudly for anything to work, I've tried to turn up the outbound volume but it didn't work very well.

When you are actually able to use the microphone, there is a very obvious static noise when talking. Everytime I talk to people while playing Dota 2 they always complain about the loud static noise.

Trying to get the sound to work on both sides is like a chess match, simply plugging the 3.5mm jack in doesn't guarantee that it will work, you have to twist the plug around until it finds a sweet spot.

Other Thoughts: Paying $55 for a heatset you would assume it would just work but with low sound quality, well, this headset doesn't even work when you plug it in. The constant static noise from the microphone and the chess match you have to play to get sound to work on both sides makes this item not worth buying. If I wasn't a lazy bum I would have returned this item within the 30 days allotted and gotten a different one, but now I'm stuck with it.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsCOMPLETE GARBAGE...STAY AWAY!!!

Pros: They look cool.

Cons: Unless Newegg simply turned around and sent back my original order, these headphones have a design flaw. Any movement of the cable causes the audio to cut in and out between a mono and stereo like feed. I just figured the first pair had a short in the cable. The replacement pair had the exact same problem.

This was tried with two different computers and three different cell phones. It isn't a port issue on the connecting device.

Other Thoughts: When the cable was in just the right position the sound was pretty good, and I was really hoping that the first pair was just a fluke.

I hate to do it, but I'm just going to have to take the grandson down to Best Buy and let him try the headphones they have in their gamers section.

5 out of 5 eggsOne more Thing to Add

Pros: A lot. Already stated in previous review.

Cons: Non

Other Thoughts: One thing I forgot to mention. The mic and sound plugs are not color coded and people complain about it because they are both red. If you look closely the connector rings on the plugs are actually color coded. I pay attention to small details like that. So just look and the plug and go buy a pair. What are you waiting for!

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair Raptor Headset

Pros: Wow! I feel like I hit a homerun! Great sound quality, looks sharp and extremely comfortable. The best thing is that I got them on sale for $25. Yahoo! The mic is very clear and I didn't have to change my TeamSpeak setting hardly at all. They really feel like they are worth $80-$100. So glad I made this purchase. I think they are $45 now but still worth it in my opinion. I love them!

Cons: Non

Other Thoughts: Should have bought 2. If Corsair products weren't so expensive I would buy them all the time. Corsair = quality. Their Ram and PSUs are outstanding! I guess they have earned the right to charge more for their products, but I only buy them when on sale sadly.

4 out of 5 eggsLong Sessions Not Recommended

Pros: Bought this headset while trying to stay in a budget, and its great for the price. The sound quality, and the mic quality seem excellent.

Cons: When gaming its usually all or nothing for me, 4-5 hour gaming sessions, or nothing. I dont like having a deadline that tells me when I need to stop. So this headset gets very uncomfortable after about 30 minutes. I have alleviated this problem by wearing a beanie when I game. If you wear glasses the problem gets much worse.

Other Thoughts: I wish I would have looked for something different, and maybe a bite more expensive, just to have something a little more comfortable.

3 out of 5 eggsOk for the price

Pros: Sound is good, mic works, cord length is good.

Cons: Quite large as stated in previous reviews. The labels on the connectors could be more noticeable. The band starts hurting my head after about 1 hour of wearing them. Mic boom could be more adjustable, others had problems hearing me unless they turned up their volume.

Other Thoughts: Good headset for the price, some cons but can be overlooked for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good Headset

Pros: Very comfortable and can barely hear whats going on around you with them on. Love that its a 3.5mm connection and not usb cause you can use them for anything. Mic works great and volume control is a great feature.

Cons: Not wireless but I knew that.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Microphone

Pros: The headset is constructed well with good cushioning. It adjusts very well and is generally comfortable. The sound quality I would have given a 5 for at this price. The cabling is nicely done for an analog headset, long cables, nice gage wiring.

Cons: Well I was very impressed with this headset right out of the box until I used the microphone. The boom itself lacks total flexibility but this is merely a critique. The sound quality on the headset I purchase was simply unacceptable. I would describe the sound quality as sounding like I had a bag over my head while inside a box.

Other Thoughts: This would have been a wonderful headset for the price if the microphone wasn't total rubbish. I read some other reviews that mentioned the mic quality and I rationalized it away as a few bad experiences. Well, I became one of them. Good news is that NewEgg will refund the purchase so I will be buying another headset :)
