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.

1 out of 5 eggsBroke in 2 month's - replacement broke in less then 1 month.

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.

1 out of 5 eggsSkip this headset.

Pros: Worked fine until it broke.

Cons: Terrible construction. I purchased this head set less than 4 months ago and one of the ear pieces broke off. This product was used VERY gently in that time period.

I have a big boy job and I can't game as much as I would like.

Would not recommend.

2 out of 5 eggsScrapped in 3 months

Pros: USB connection
very sleek and smooth finish
nice looking headset
sound quality was nice, but not great
cord length is just right

Cons: USB connection error as reported by others within 3 months of use
Uncomfortable for long periods of use

Other Thoughts: Overall a really nice headset for the price, but I just cant recommend it due to the phones' internals messing up and causing errors so soon into its lifespan. Would get 4 stars if it had lasted a year or two.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Dissapointed

Pros: Comfortable
Good sound
Mic is bothersome at first. Friends hear echoes and static, but it wasnt hard to fix.
Really Good design.

Cons: Upon one day of usage, I found that the power to the headset will cut out in regular fashion. I get the error that the usb port cant supply enough power to the headset, but it cuts off every time i slightly move the cord (or straighten it out.)

This has occured with all 3 devices I have used it on. My Laptop, MY Desktop, and my Ps3. I was very dissapointed because I like this headset. Now its just a matter of getting a refund.

Other Thoughts: Skip this one. I was recommended to buy Corsair products by a friend of mine. Will not be doing so again.

2 out of 5 eggsI Wouldn't

Pros: Good for watching TV. The Volume/Mute button is nice. Mic is clear.

Cons: - Cable went bad after 6 months of use. Right above the volume/mute button.
- Low bass.
- Awful for music
- Meh for games.
- Wire wanted nothing more than to tangle up.

Other Thoughts: It has some qualities and if you can tame and save the wire. they are not too bad.
