3 out of 5 eggsGood Headset........ sorta

Pros: -Good Quality Sound
-Comfortable for extended use

Cons: -Broke after 6 months of gentle user, repeatedly cuts in and outs as if a cable is damaged but i cannot find any blemishes or even scuffs on it.
-Software is .... bad. horrible controls. took me 4 hours to get this working on my PC just due to the flaky software.
-No base
-Low Volume on certain devices. (PS4, PC) dispite proper audio settings and volume. the volume was just a little to quiet.

Other Thoughts: Good starter headset, but i would recommend spending a little more money and getting something more solid.

1 out of 5 eggsBroke after 7 months, software is garbage, mic might as well be a tin can with a string on it

Pros: - Good sound after you EQ it
- Cheap, not including the shipping cost for the inevitable RMA
- Relatively comfortable

Cons: - Software is beyond flaky. It resets the microphone volume every time you restart the computer, and provides almost no options.
- If using this with a game and Mumble, it switches the left and right audio (sweet.) Doesn't happen on any other headset so its not a mumble setting.
- You can't plug this in or take it out while you are playing games or your sound dies (likely due to software). Have to restart the game.
- It broke after 7 months of moderate use (one of the earcups just straight up fell off the frame, they are held on with 1 screw, 4mm in plastic)
- Everyone online hates me because the mic sounds like I am talking inside of a running microwave

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this. I am very dissapointed with Corsair as I bought this due to their logo. I figured that it wouldn't be deluxe, but in day to day experience, the only about this thing better than a 7 dollar crapset is that it sounds better, and that's only if you can figure out how to EQ it (it's awful out of the box). The Software is half-baked garbage, and makes this thing a pain in the rear to use. Everytime you start up your computer, the software resets the microphone volume to the max, and since the mic sounds like a tin can attached to a busted muffler, you blow away everyone in the game you are playing. Even after you turn it down it still sounds like you have a permanent bass pass on. And that's not to even mention the awesomeness that is dying in CS:GO because this headset switches your left and right audio mysteriously.

And then, just to make it interesting, it fell apart while I was wearing it. Now I get to pay another 16 bucks to send it in and get a new one, so I can go back to the horrible experience of using this. I asked them if they could replace with the HS30 (with analog jacks and hopefully no broken software) but of course they wouldn't (I suspect they have a lot of these sitting around.)

Corsair used to be a brand you could count on. I know some of their expensive stuff is still decent, but it seems they have fallen to the level of other manufacturers and been putting their name on junk products.

Its a shame too. They really sound quite lovely once you EQ them, and If they had spent another few days on the software, put 2 tiny metal brackets in the joint between the frame and earphones, and made the microphone sound as good as a 7 dollar headset, this would be hands down the best budget headset on the market.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't believe the few bad reviews. Get gaming headset driver 2.0.37 ""

Pros: The sound quality is superb, and the new Corsair software (gaming headset driver 2.0.37 fixes any Windows 10 issues others may have had in the past). The 7.1 sounds so good, and the build quality is really nice. Nothing cheap at all about this, other reviews I read seem to have not gotten the 2.0.37 gaming headset driver and adjusted the EQ. That's the first thing I did before plugging it in. It's built solid, you'll like it.

Cons: I can't honestly see any.

3 out of 5 eggsGood enough

Pros: Pretty decent headset, the virtual 7.1 is interesting and since I am not an audiophile I don't care much about the quality. My friends say the mic is of good quality and it does seem so.

Cons: Alrighty, here are the cons:
*Uncomfortable after 2 hours, my ears rib the inside and becomes hard to bear after awhile, wearing a winter hat helps, but may be warm because you have to let your ears breath here and there because the leather doesn't breathe
*Okay drivers, you have to start it every time you shut down, unlike other software that remembers what your settings were
*Inline controller has no clip
*Feels too big on my head
*Look ridiculous and 'gamer-y'

Other Thoughts: I have used these for ~6 months and they have held up well, I do treat them well, but I do knock them off my arm rest (I have nowhere else)and they have held up well

3 out of 5 eggsCorsair Raptor HS40 - Great until they break.

Pros: Sound quality was good until they broke.
Fairly comfortable fit.

Cons: These broke after one year of daily use.

The inline volume control is poorly designed, it's bulky and located in just the right spot where it gets snagged on everything.
After these broke i took apart the volume control, the tiny wires have no slack and are barely soldered so any sort of snagging of the inline control will inevitably lead to a break.

Other Thoughts: Not Recommended!
Would not buy again.

2 out of 5 eggsDon't buy

Pros: Good sound, when it doesn't short out or BSOD my PC. Relatively comfortable.

Cons: Volume control has a short, which disconnects the headset and occasionally causes a hardware-based BSOD. Used this headset maybe 5 hours in the last year.

Other Thoughts: Filed a RMA with Corsair but they want me to pay out of pocket to mail them in while pushing strict package rules upon me. Never buying from this brand again.

2 out of 5 eggsVery Bad Headset

Pros: The sound quality is okay.

Cons: The microphone constantly sounds like someone is blowing into it and you can not make out anything anything you are saying.

Other Thoughts: Do not get this, even if it is 50 dollars.

3 out of 5 eggsCorsair HS40

Pros: Souonds great, more or less. (Explain below) Fits my big melon. Nice quality mic

Cons: Only 1 con as of this moment, and it is a MASSIVE one.. Corsair, in their brilliance, have not came up with a Windows 10 driver for it you. So, instead of surround, you have basic headset with mic.

Other Thoughts: IF I had known this little piece of information, I would have went with a different set, but as no one had mentioned it, I got them.

OS compatibility for virtual surround should be a primary concern for a company that NORMALLY makes really good gear. I just wish I could say the same about the driver for this headset.

Pros: Comfortable but irrelevant since you are buying a working headset not ear muffs.

Cons: Cheap flimsy construction that breaks INCREDIBLY quickly.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY.
