I order this headset on 6/10/13 the price was reasonable $75(Total) I was really exited for my first gaming headset unfortunately I was not impressed. This headset lacks in bass, it needs something else to give that extra power. I would not consider this to be the ultimate comfortable headset out there. After 2-3+ hours after raiding you can(I personally) start to feel the weight of headset coming down on my head. Sure this headset may feel light but once you were it, the weight can start coming down on you. The foam or microfiber ear pads are not that comfortable either, your ears can get warm, not hot but warm so you need to take the headset off once in a while. Also, the microfiber picks up a lot of lint or dust and since I'm still the gel type guy it leaves flakes on the ear pads since it rubs against the hair.

The mic in my opinion seems very good. when I used the mic In mumble my group noticed right away and said "did you bought a new mic or something, your voice sounds crystal clear" props to the mic then.

Ever since Windows 8.1 corsair has been having issues with their sound drivers for a while they had brief 1-2 months of nothing but troubles.

I typically use this head during the night when everyone is sound asleep or when I'm raiding 2-4 Hours.

Even after 10 months in using this I personally would recommend this headset to say the least, when I was at Best Buy in the PC gaming section I tried the Logitech G430s and these felt so much lighter and they weren't crushing my head also the demo sound effects where even better and sounded more convincingly. I'm probably going to try out Logitech or Steel Series for my next purchase.
