Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"On top of this the audio isn't the best."
_
"If you really want to know how terrible this product and Corsair's service is, check the Corsair user forums' audio section; it is full of hopeless attempts to resolve problems when Corsair is utterly useless."
_
"But this headset is NOT stable, it has a defective battery system that will most likely break within the first 6 months of use as I have found a ton of complaints about the same 2 issues on the internet and more specifically the corsair audio technology forum."
_
"You guys know about those expensive gaming headphones that don't produce good audio and bass?"
_
"Not only is the audio excellent for positioning enemy movement, it is able to create the feeling of a living world."
_
"-The audio quality is pretty sub par for a headset that costs this much."
_
"The headphones have OK audio fidelity and a decent mike."
_
"great audio can get a bit heavy if prolonged use(15+ hours) easy to setup battery lasts good 8-15 hours"
_
"Beautiful, comfortable and the audio has depth."
_
"Now that i've compared both the corsair and the turtlebeach I trust turtlebeach to deliver a much better audio experience, the corsair sound is really muddy and choked the positional audio of the TBeach is way more accurate with crispier highs and better footsteps for FPS gamesAs I said before it is a good headset but only if you never heard anything better"

Battery

Battery:
"Battery also is not that great, but I do not mind so much since I can change them while I am using it, and it does not interrupt my usage."
_
"Cons (2)The first problem with it is it's wireless so that's always going to degrade the quality somewhat depending on battery and range from the transmitter or Bluetooth device itself."
_
"You just have to let them set until the battery goes dead and hope that when you re-charge it, the headset's functional again."
_
"The only problem is that it's supposed to have a 10 hour battery life."
_
"Only complaint so far is battery life, I only get maybe 5 hours of life with it before I have to hook it up."
_
"If the battery is dead they still work when you plug them in to charge too."
_
"-Great battery life, with the option to have them disable themselves when not in use they lasted about 14 hours on a single charge."
_
"It was actually a very long lasting battery and could hold it's own for a decent 6-8 hours."
_
"Battery life is nice."
_
"- Battery life: Pretty stellar; I get at least a full day on a single charge while watching videos and listening to music."
_
"The battery life is GREAT!"

Button

Button:
"This is more of a personal annoyance than an actual quip, but the power button has had a problem with me from the start where it can be pretty finicky and you have to hit it multiple times to turn the headset on off."
_
"Just as good as the Vengeance 2100 but the problem lies with the physical volume buttons."
_
"Maybe the next track, prev track and pause button are missing."
_
"This is more of a personal annoyance than an actual quip, but the power button has had a problem with me from the start where it can be pretty finicky and you have to hit it multiple times to turn the headset on off."
_
"A switch instead of a push button would have gone perfectly, I really don't understand why they went this route."
_
"Would love to have a button to mute or change tracks right on the headset."
_
"I valued comfort over extra buttons."
_
"+ Flip-up to mute mic (no fumbling to find the mute button on the headset) + Headset adjusts nicely, and the ear-cups breathe well."

Cable

Cable:
"I would give this whole headset a 4 out of 5 stars if there was a weighted base to the docking station for the USBBecause the base itself is flimsy now the USB charging cable itself is good its normal qualities nothing superb but I'm always a fan of the flat USB cables anywaysOverall thoughts: just amazingFor the price and what kind of headset it isI'm very surprised by this item."
_
"The weakness of the past models is that the cord eventually develops a short and it suddenly stops working."
_
"The braided material seems to hang up less on things, since I really dislike it when I turn my head and there's resistance somewhere from the cable that tugs at the headphones."
_
"I would give this whole headset a 4 out of 5 stars if there was a weighted base to the docking station for the USBBecause the base itself is flimsy now the USB charging cable itself is good its normal qualities nothing superb but I'm always a fan of the flat USB cables anywaysOverall thoughts: just amazingFor the price and what kind of headset it isI'm very surprised by this item."
_
"The port itself is fine and the light is very well done, since the way the cable that comes with it is designed, you can see the light blinking without having to actually be looking at the light (it uses a clear plastic to reflect it)."
_
"The charging cord is very fragile, but it's a generic USB to electronic charger cable that can be easily replaced anyways."
_
"Good levels, the 7.1 surround works great and the braided cord is a nice touch."
_
"You can easily pick up a longer one, so I'm not going to take off a star for this, but it definitely would have been nice if the cable was a foot or two longer."

"After a year that charging port starts to fail and you end up with a nice set of headphones that won't charge, but still look good and there is no alternative either you replace the charging port or you trashed the headphones most of us out there don't have the technical know-how or proper tools to replace the charging port on these headphones I have seen videos of people doing it, but it turns into a big problem I did accomplish this once, but it repeatedly happened and now they're just a pretty fixture on my wall."
_
"As far as the construction of the headphones they're still in tact as of today the problem is the charging port."
_
"They must be charged, which means you're going to be repeatedly plugging the charging port in that is the problem."
_
"The only problem i have with the headset is when it is plugged in for charging while in use, the mic will emit a bit of a hum, you will not hear any noise but if you are using the headset to talk over skype it will emit a low hum to whoever you are talking to."
_
"Issue 2: The headset will no longer charge, it will show a solid amber colour and will fail to turn on at any point."
_

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"It is very comfortable otherwise, but I found that mine creates unbearable headache-inducing pressure points just above and behind my ears where my glasses are after a relatively short time."
_
"It is comfortable, but I still found it a little squeezy and uncomfortable after extended wear because it is so bulky."
_
"- Sound output quality was better than other wireless headsets I've used- Voice quality is on par with Logitech G930, better than a webcam, worse than a Siberia V2- Mic must be swiveled up to mute, inconvenient and unreliable in muting- Comfortable even after 4+ hours of use, can feel a bit warm with continuous use- Signal is strong with about 15 feet and one wall separation - microwaves cause significant interference- Low clamping pressure and sits lightly on head leading to an overall loose feeling even on my larger head - sometimes slides when looking downOverall I like this better than the G930."
_
"I have a larger head, so finding a comfortable headset is a challenge."
_
"Its not a bad headset and it is comfortable but it just doesn't sound as good as its cheaper cousin the HS40."
_
"While the headset is very comfortable and sounds kinda ok, beware of Corsair's crappy software."
_
"Absolutely fantastic sound quality, bass is just right, the most comfortable headset I've used."
_
"Nice gaming headset, I love it, very comfortable"
_
"Overall, this product really is great for the price, and I feel comfortable giving it five stars."
_
"They're comfortable they sound good."
_
"They'really comfortable, easy to use, look nice."

Connection

Connection:
"Cons:-The biggest con for me is the range on these, the previous headset I had (Afterglow wireless) would allow me to walk up to 30 ft away indoors before loosing connection, walls didn't even seem to be a problem."
_
"You might have better luck going with the logitech equivalent because it's lighter and doesn't have as many connectivity issues but its extremely flimsy and will break much easier."
_
"Audio cuts out on occasion, seems like a connectivity problem with the bluetooth possibly."
_
"One more thing, for a wireless headset you have 20-30yards max before you lose connection..complete junk."
_
"I've had too much trouble with the G930 disconnect issue while my wife uses the G930's without issue, mine would constantly loose the USB Wireless connection making them unbearable to use."
_
"My current router is not the greatest but I had no loss of connection walking all over my house."
_
"Just don't expect to be walking around the house with this -- the connection breaks through walls very easily."
_
"Pros-Battery life(8-10 hours)-Good drivers-Good connectivity and rangeCons-Weight(heavier that i wanted)-Static noise constantly-Lack of mute buttonAbout the static noise in the background i have gotten a second headset as a replacement from amazon and the second one was just as bad as the first."
_
"It sounds great and the connection is POWERFUL."
_
"We love how far the wireless connection can make it!"
_
"Installation was fine, connection was easy, and comfort is ok. Update: See comments for details, but I was able to get some bass out of this, raising to 3 stars instead of just 2.Update 2: I finally had a chance to try the mic."

Control

Control:
"I hate those huge blocks on the wires that controls the volume, mic, etc."
_
"The placement of the volume controls makes it easy to accidentally hit it."
_
"I have to say the on-headset controls for volume were very nice, and raising the microphone to mute it is very helpful!"
_
"It would be nice if I could completely disable the in-line controls."
_
"The 7.1 sound system is great, high quality audio with comfortable control over the headset itself with the Corsair software."
_
"The volume control works well and is easy to find."

Corsair

Corsair:
"Additionally a problem I and other owners on the corsair forums have been having is that the headset will cut out for no reason fairly often."
_
"The Corsair H2000 or H2100 7.1 headset seems awesome at first but problems arise extremely quick once you start using it."
_
"I went on the Corsair forums to find a solution and all I found was a lot of other people complaining and no comments by Corsair official support."
_
"If you really want to know how terrible this product and Corsair's service is, check the Corsair user forums' audio section; it is full of hopeless attempts to resolve problems when Corsair is utterly useless."
_
"All the other components that I have purchased from corsair have been wonderful and I was looking forward to a headset to replace my broken Afterglows."
_
"The K70 is something that fits more along the lines of Corsair's good reputation, their quality, and should be the standard of all their products."
_
"The Corsair software is spartan, but very usable, and with some tweaking you should be happy with the sound you get unless your expectations are utterly unrealistic."
_
"Corsair usually does good stuff, but this left a bad taste in my mouth."
_
"I've owned several Corsair products over the years, and after the debut of their wonderful K70 (on which I am typing right now) I thought that I might check out their entry into the still-weak wireless PC headset market."

Design

Design:
"Although I was initially excited about trying this headset, after using it for only two months I am disappointed with both the quality of the product and the overall design."
_
"The only good thing is the design and that's it."
_
"I have been using it for a couple weeks now and it is all around well designed."
_
"+ Corsair audio software (download from corsair's website) is well designed and easy to operate."
_
"+ Solid design, sounds great for wireless, good battery life,- Very tight fit straight out of the box."
_
"The ear pads were extremely comfortable, and having kids, the open back design was wonderful to be able to hear them if needed."

Fit

Fit:
"Biggest complaint about these headphones is the way they fit my head when worn in the usual manner of having the headband right on the top of my head."
_
"They should fit large heads, are not really all that comfortable with glasses."
_
"The headset fits fine and is comfortable."
_
"Pros:-One of the most comfortable headsets I have ever worn, after a full day of use my ears feel no strain like they do in every other headset I have used and I have larger than average ears so its impressive they fit so well and have room to spare."
_
"The K70 is something that fits more along the lines of Corsair's good reputation, their quality, and should be the standard of all their products."
_
"This headset fits very well."
_
"Sizing is great as well, fits small heads and large heads with the change-ability of the headpiece."

Gaming

Gaming:
"Easily the most annoying headset I've yet found in wireless PC gaming."
_
"When the sound is working, it's alright, not great, but they are completely unusable for gaming."
_
"You guys know about those expensive gaming headphones that don't produce good audio and bass?"
_
"Not a very good gaming headset."
_
"The problem is, I saw gaming and thought I could use it for XBox."
_
"We were going to use this for recording voice overs as well as gaming, and the volume is simply unacceptable for those purposes."
_
"Great gaming headset."
_
"I would recommend if you plan to be doing short stints of gaming in a stationary position but for other use scenarios, there are better options out there."
_
"They sound amazing, and they work great for gaming."
_
"Nice gaming headset, I love it, very comfortable"
_

Listening

Listening:
"So when listening to music or videos on the PC it sounds terrible."
_
"When listening to something its hard to notice the static the H2100 produce but its there and can be annoying if you are listening at low enough volume."
_
"On the plus side they do have good sound quality when listening to toons but alas that is not why i wasted 90 dollars."
_
"Pros:- Lightweight- Good range of earpiece adjustment- Comfortable ear cups (personal preference)- 11hr battery life as tested (at 65% volume, no mic)- Tested and works 100% with Mac Windows plug and play- Acceptable wireless rangeCons:- Poor low frequency bass response- Mic is too stiff for adjustment for distance to face until worked many times- Tinny rattling noise heard at times during high volume gunshots or music useA great comfortable headset, but for more range when listening to music and overall quality you might want to compare to these Astro's: http: amzn."
_
"I typically listen to audio on AKG-Q701's and these corsair's are able to compete as far as listening enjoyment."
_
"It's also very good for listening to music."
_
"In my opinion, the Corsair gaming headphones are excellent headphones that combine very good audio quality and comfortable design to give a very pleasurable listening experience for music and gaming."

Loud

Loud:
"It's annoying to go from a decent volume to dead silence or having to throw my headset off because it's too loud."
_
"Great headphones, although my only complaint is that they are loud when at low volume."
_
"Worst of all, they produce a loud humming sound for anyone on the other end."
_
"I mean, it's good be be able to to get loud with headphones, but these literally don't do anything but super loud."
_
"The surround is great, and the volume is nice and loud."
_
"Strong sound that is very loud, the mic works great but will have to be adjusted so it doesn't pick up white noise."
_
"+ volume is robust (15-20% was plenty loud for me.)"
_
"But this headset can be loud and Imo that's a good thing.3."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Mic is not great though, but good enough."
_
"First, Pros and Cons:Pros:Very good-lookingQuality constructionGreat sound qualityConvenient features (volume wheel, folding mic)Cons:A bit uncomfortable for long wearingHeavyPriceWhen I first got this headset, I was very pleased with the construction and packaging, and they came partially charged."
_
"There is a low-volume talk back on the mic which I really like, but some other reviewers have complained about."
_
"However where this device fails miserably is the microphone."
_
"The only problem i have with the headset is when it is plugged in for charging while in use, the mic will emit a bit of a hum, you will not hear any noise but if you are using the headset to talk over skype it will emit a low hum to whoever you are talking to."
_
"They don't sound great for music, but my mic quality is much better compared to my G390s and I have no complaints about how they sound while playing games and music at the same time."
_
"These really do feel like a trap from Saw... Mic quality is nice though."
_
"Good luck getting the microphone to curve around to your mouth."
_
"Have yet to test out the microphone, though it folds out of the way nicely."
_
"For the low price of a wireless headset, it's hard to beat, but I've found myself not using the wireless feature that much (nor is it that great to begin with) and the muted microphone has caused me to switch over to a different headset."
_
"I have to say the on-headset controls for volume were very nice, and raising the microphone to mute it is very helpful!"
_

Noise

Noise:
"The worse part is the low static noise that is always there and its very annoying."
_
"However, the sound fidelity and localization, combined with the fact that I can still hear outside noises, leads to a weird effect - several times I've mistaken video game sounds for real life, and asked if a thunderstorm was coming up or if the washing machine was breaking."
_
"After switching back to my previous headphones I've realized how terribly noisy these things are when not even in use."
_
"It leaves a gap at the bottom that is uncomfortable and lets noise in out."
_
"The microphone has a horrible static background noise if you turn up the sensitivity, but if you don't nobody can hear you."
_
"Bought as gift but a very brief test showed they don't seal well around the ear to keep out outside noise."
_
"The mic has a good vocal response and nobody I have been talking to has heard any echo or distortion, and it does a good job of not picking up outside noise."
_
"They are not noise cancelling, which is good - I want to be able to hear if my wife is talking to me."
_
"The mic dampens surrounding noise very well, but as a result, the overall volume on the mic when recording is not as loud as I would like (no matter how close I get it to my mouth) in comparison to my other microphones."
_
"I would change the mute switch's location on the cord but other than that, good ambient noise cancelling, good product."
_
"Strong sound that is very loud, the mic works great but will have to be adjusted so it doesn't pick up white noise."

Price

Price:
"For the low price of a wireless headset, it's hard to beat, but I've found myself not using the wireless feature that much (nor is it that great to begin with) and the muted microphone has caused me to switch over to a different headset."
_
"I bought this product to replace my cheap made but expensive Logitech G930 headset that broke even though it was rarely used and meticulously handled when used."
_
"All things considered I feel like even with its mediocre performance this is the best choice for the price point."
_
"Sound quality is meh, constant hiss in the background when no audio is playing and the software looks like its straight out of the stoneage, not too happy with this product for the price paid, would recommend the G930s over this any day."
_
"Making your customer pay more money on something that is broken because you can't supply the right product is a great idea."
_
"The headphones function mostly the same as my old vengeance which I can't complain about, they work just about anywhere inside my home as long as the microwave isn't on, have great speakers and are all in all a great purchase for the price."
_
"Definitely recommend it, DAMN cheap too for the quality."
_
"Looking back, that's probably bad, since if your product is good because of the price, instead of the quality, there's some issues there."
_
"Overall, this product really is great for the price, and I feel comfortable giving it five stars."
_
"That said, the sound quality is actually quite good for the price, and I am very happy with my purchase."
_
"Also, the price point is amazing for a wireless headset with a great mic and sound quality."

_
"They don't sound great for music, but my mic quality is much better compared to my G390s and I have no complaints about how they sound while playing games and music at the same time."
_
"But the biggest problem with it is the mic, the quality of how it sounds is about average, but it is not powerful enough to pick up my talking when it is right next to my mouth."
_
"All in all, great headset, voice quality is superb and I have yet to have a serious complaint about them."
_
"The mic had a horrible scratchy quality to it that made it basically unusable for communication."

"Absolutely fantastic sound quality, bass is just right, the most comfortable headset I've used."

Range:
"Cons (2)The first problem with it is it's wireless so that's always going to degrade the quality somewhat depending on battery and range from the transmitter or Bluetooth device itself."
_

_
"My only complaint is range."
_
"The range is not as good as the PX4 or the bluetooth but is fine for what I need."
_
"The customization it gives you is alright, I'd recommend getting it just to be able to control-The wireless range."

"But after setting it up it works great."
_
"I had to have the headset volume all the way up on my logitech with this headset I have all settings under half and it is great."

"The microphone quality is great, although I've never used it in any setting other than talking on the computer."
_
"Turned the equalizer settings under 1K down all the way just to get them to sound decent."

_
"Sound is great, and the scroll volume on the size is great as well."
_
"I even have a larger size head, so I know that isn't the problem."
_
"The size of the earholes is getting to me as well, as they squeeze my ears against my head, and no adjustment allows my ears to fully fit inside the holes."
_
"Speaking of charging, the included charging cable is of notably higher quality than expected, with a clear plastic on the small end, presumably so you can see the charge indicator light more clearly, which it accomplishes."

Skype

Skype:
"It now sits as low as it can go instead of in front of my mouth, so if I turn my head to the left or down at all, my microphone rubs against my shoulder or chest, which is annoying to me and my skype buddies who can hear the shuffling."
_
"Cons: Microphone's sound quality is *TERRIBLE* static and distortion are so bad I've had people on Skype, Ventrillo, etc complain; also even with mic boost and volume turned all the way up, people note that I seem quite and hard to hear."
_
"In using this headset just for Skype and Webinars, I am not taking advantage of the Dolby 7.1 surround sound features."
_
"The only downside is that you'll need to use Skype vs Steam Voice Chat it seems to better that way at least for now."
_
"Mic is clear on Skype at least."
_
"Microphone is great quality according to my friends over Skype."
_
"Without writing an essay:-The headset has memory foam on the ear pad, is very comfortable and not heavy-Sound quality and mic are very good for music and audio conferences-When you turn up the mic, it shut off, so no worries or paranoia that someone could listen to you since is not always active-Battery duration acceptable like any other competitor set-Wireless signal is strong and stable, no crackling if not after about 15 meters without walls-Works on Windows 10 and 8.1 without any driver installation, the custom software is mandatory-Works perfectly with Skype and similar VoIP software, even for work conferences-It has just the volume control on the left ear pad, if it had the music controls also, it would have had 5 stars."
_
"- The mic is clear and accurately conveys my voice in both Skype and TeamSpeak."

"If your talking in skype while gaming I'd leave it in stereo as well."

_
"Sound is okay at best and the surround sound isn't great sounding."
_
"The software is a huge joke any slight adjustments and it cuts out the sound so you have to restart the game your playing or your pc sometimes which is terrible."

Speaker

Speaker:
"-Windows does a terrible job of switching between this device and my 3.5 jack speakers."
_
"The headphones function mostly the same as my old vengeance which I can't complain about, they work just about anywhere inside my home as long as the microwave isn't on, have great speakers and are all in all a great purchase for the price."
_
"I was not able to get my computer to automatically switch from the speakers to the headset so I have to turn down the speaker sound when I use the headset."
_
"The sound is amazing and the microphone is great with no weird buzzing sounds and the speakers dont buzz either."
_
"Another thing which depending on the situation is a pro or a con, these headphones can double as speakers if you turn them up all the way and set them down you can hear them clear across the house, that doesn't sound like a huge but that is the pro side when you want them on your head you are left with a small amount of wiggle room for adjusting the volume in volume mixer."
_
"The speakers themselves are very good for playing games."
_
"Corsair usually turns out excellent products as I have a computer case from them as well as their SP2500 speakers, so I thought these headphones would be equally great, but I was extremely disappointed."
_
"You have to close and or reset you audio preferences if you are not using the headset and playing off speakers5 Stars for: Comfort, battery reliability, decent sound for gaming, great music headphones, super cheap being wireless."

Static

Static:
"The worse part is the low static noise that is always there and its very annoying."
_
"The H2100 is extremely prone to signal loss and static popping, but just as annoying -- and ultimately the deciding factor -- is the tendency of the USB power port to simply wear out."
_
"terrible static , common problems from a wireless headset ."
_
"The microphone had feedback that you couldn't mute locally and I had many people complain about a static sound."
_
"The microphone has a horrible static background noise if you turn up the sensitivity, but if you don't nobody can hear you."
_
"lots of static and the have gotten many complaints about people not being able to hear me well."

Stereo

Stereo:
"Your annoyance may vary depending on what you use the headset for, but for my purposes (mostly gaming) this headset overall sounds worse than my $8 Walmart no-brand pair of over the ear stereo headphones that is missing an ear cup because it got stepped on."
_
"I have a pair of $30 Turtle Beaches and I found the 2.1 stereo was way easier to track footsteps in CSGO and overall had better audio."
_
"Don't expect anything bass slapping or extreme immersion of a $2k stereo system, but the sound is very decent and enjoyable."
_
"Headphones are comfortable, 7.1 digital sounds vastly superior to Stereo in every way with large drivers."
_
"Sound Quality is fantastic and the software lets you switch between Dolby 5.1, 7.1, and stereo(2.0)."
_
"The sound of the headset is above average for stereo music play but good at best for gaming."

USB

USB:
"This seems to be caused by faulty USB dongles so I will either be requesting a new dongle or trying to get a refund for these headphones."
_
"I would give this whole headset a 4 out of 5 stars if there was a weighted base to the docking station for the USBBecause the base itself is flimsy now the USB charging cable itself is good its normal qualities nothing superb but I'm always a fan of the flat USB cables anywaysOverall thoughts: just amazingFor the price and what kind of headset it isI'm very surprised by this item."
_
"The H2100 is extremely prone to signal loss and static popping, but just as annoying -- and ultimately the deciding factor -- is the tendency of the USB power port to simply wear out."
_
"On a side note, I recently had a problem with my first headset where the USB wireless transmitter stopped working."
_
"I've had too much trouble with the G930 disconnect issue while my wife uses the G930's without issue, mine would constantly loose the USB Wireless connection making them unbearable to use."
_
"only other glitch - doesn't seem to be compatible with usb 3.0.There are a couple videos we watched that you might enjoy too: Hands on: Corsair Gaming H1500 & H2100; Corsair Vengeance 2100 Circumaural Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset Overview from Newegg; and this one by Tek Syndicate Corsair Vengeance 2100 Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset Overview."

_
"Excellent , the only Thing the USB signal receptor it's weaker than logitech G930"
_
"The charging cord is very fragile, but it's a generic USB to electronic charger cable that can be easily replaced anyways."
_
"All of the recommended fixes - the extension cable, different USB ports, etc, didn't work and the only wireless device in the house is a router in the basement."
_
"It would be nice if the transmitter stand had a USB port on it so that the charging cable wouldn't burn another USB port on the computer."

Video

Video:
"It is the worst headphones I've ever heard for music and movies where the speakers crackle at moderate volume."
_
"However, the sound fidelity and localization, combined with the fact that I can still hear outside noises, leads to a weird effect - several times I've mistaken video game sounds for real life, and asked if a thunderstorm was coming up or if the washing machine was breaking."
_
"After a year that charging port starts to fail and you end up with a nice set of headphones that won't charge, but still look good and there is no alternative either you replace the charging port or you trashed the headphones most of us out there don't have the technical know-how or proper tools to replace the charging port on these headphones I have seen videos of people doing it, but it turns into a big problem I did accomplish this once, but it repeatedly happened and now they're just a pretty fixture on my wall."
_
"Maybe my unit was defective, but I have a similar but more pronounced problem as can be seen in this video:https: www."
_
"So when listening to music or videos on the PC it sounds terrible."
_
"only other glitch - doesn't seem to be compatible with usb 3.0.There are a couple videos we watched that you might enjoy too: Hands on: Corsair Gaming H1500 & H2100; Corsair Vengeance 2100 Circumaural Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset Overview from Newegg; and this one by Tek Syndicate Corsair Vengeance 2100 Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset Overview."
_
"(8hrs straight of calls and video streaming)pros- good price- simple to use- easy setup- sound quality is good- no feedback buzzing when silent (like afterglows)- stays muted when out of range (which g930 didn't do)- padding is comfycons- they feel tight (maybe because their new."

Weight

Weight:
"Good thing these aren't made of metal, the weight on your neck would be unbearable after 20 minutes."
_
"I can definitely feel the weight, they get a bit uncomfortable after a couple hours, only way to alleviate this is to move the head phones to different parts of your head or get extra padding."
_
"The padding is soft and comfortable, pair that with the light weight and it's a very comfortable headset to use for long periods of time."
_
"Very good sound, nice weight and range is decent."

Windows

Windows:
"Doesn't work well with Windows 10 with provided utility--cant run with 7.1 audio."
_
"-Windows does a terrible job of switching between this device and my 3.5 jack speakers."
_
"I do have a problem with Windows 8 not recognizing the Headset for wireless which causes me to finagle the sound settings to make the Corsair the primary."
_
"Once installed however, the set up was still a bit of a challenge, but that is more a Windows 8 issue."
_
"I was happy with my purchase until i upgraded my OS from Windows 7 to Windows 10."
_
"I did have to use the small CD to install the right drivers, but after doing that it works very smoothly on my Windows 7 computer, switching over to these as default whenever I plug in the USB stick."
_
"It is pretty limited in my opinion as you could only use it with Windows PC."
_
"EASE OF USEThe USB dongle is recognized by Windows with no drivers, and shows up as standard headset and microphone devices."

Wireless

Wireless:
"Cons (2)The first problem with it is it's wireless so that's always going to degrade the quality somewhat depending on battery and range from the transmitter or Bluetooth device itself."
_
"Everything else on it is amazing the weather feels good the head shop is good and sturdy and it doesn't look like it will break easily over time it's got some heft to it4 5Sound: Superb(for wireless)I had to return these before this is a couple months ago for unrelated issues nothing wrong with the headset mind you the sound was a great for wireless you gotta understand that it's being transmitted over radio waves so depending on the battery and the Range your transmitting from there is going to be issues nothing that's going to destroy her experience is going to be great the digital surround sound is awesomeSound rating 4 5Peripherals: kinda lame!"
_
"For the low price of a wireless headset, it's hard to beat, but I've found myself not using the wireless feature that much (nor is it that great to begin with) and the muted microphone has caused me to switch over to a different headset."
_
"Easily the most annoying headset I've yet found in wireless PC gaming."
_
"The most glaring problem is the tendency of the wireless to lose signal repeatedly if the dongle is too far away, or impeded by a heavy book, or if you have another device in close proximity, or if it just feels like it; but far more insidious is the tendency of the charging port on the left can to gradually deform to the point where the cable won't stay plugged in against the force of gravity (that is to say, if you're wearing them the plug will fall out)."
