Battery

_
"Customer Service Drawbacks1) There are many reports on Corsair website stating that people are having issues, rather than posting openly so others can benefit Corsair reps are requesting email address personal messaging the fixes2) The most common 'solution' being recommended is to just leave the headset on for 1-2 days while the battery drains, once the battery is drained you should attach to your computer and 'should' be able to run the firmware updater."

Astro A40, A50, Trittons, Turtle Beachs, Skullcandy PLYR1, etc.)"

Microphone

Microphone:
"so kudo on not screwing that up Corsairbasically the only complaints i have about this headset at $90 is the microphone, some nitpicking on the tactile feel of the buttons, the fact that the power button is press and hold instead of a swith or just a simple press, and that mute doesn't activate when i flip the mic up."
_
"Isolation is a bit weak on the headphones, but the mic does a great job of noise canceling."
_
"I dislike that the ear cups swivel so easily and so often, and dislike the fact that the mic is always attached to the headset."
_
"The Info Mic as Corsair calls it, or lights on the end of he mic to show you things like battery life and weather the mic is muted, are hard to see with the mic in it's optimal speaking position for me."
_
"The mute button while well placed is more of a hassle than just moving the mic all the way up on the Vengeance 2100 was."
_
"The sound is also very good and the mic is pretty good too."
_
"the microphone is in the best practical position and the settings are in the right place...but it's still very very quiet."
_
"Boom mic is well positioned - I tend to push it down below my mouth (so I can eat and drink while playing) - the mic picks up my voice remarkably well."
_
"The mic is good enough, and the wireless is surprisingly great."

Noise

Noise:
"Isolation is a bit weak on the headphones, but the mic does a great job of noise canceling."
_
"It happens that my kitchen is at that and moving my head 2 inches would trigger the noise - made it annoying to listen to music as I did with the G930."
_
"Testing this in Skype calls, people were unable to hear any of the background noises (including birds tweeting in the background) and they couldn't tell I was speaking on a headset - very impressive."
_
"Isolation is a bit weak on the headphones, but the mic does a great job of noise canceling."
_
"You need to know that these are over-ear cups, so they will create a seal (they are not noise cancelling, but they will block out a great deal of noise)."
_
"- Headphones do NOT isolate background noise very well."
_
"voice_loopback 1 in-game lets you hear your voice and it comes through crystal clear without background noise."

Astro A40, A50, Trittons, Turtle Beachs, Skullcandy PLYR1, etc.)"

Quality

Quality:
"So over all, I (HIGHLY) recommend this headset for anyone who is looking for a not to expensive but not cheap and very good quality headset."
_
"And to tell the truth, it is the hardware designment to cause this problem, the whole quality of headphone is quite well."
_
"It's not as good as I expect, but given the very nice build quality and comfort of the set, I've upgraded my review score to 3 stars."
_
"The second major negative here is build quality."
_
"Very uncomfortable, bad sound quality, bad mic"
_
"Sound quality was good, but honestly not nearly as good (listening to high quality music) as two Sony headsets we have."
_
"third, comfort is above all for me, and then quality comes second."
_
"when i pay more than 100$ for a headset i expect quality, comfort, and reliability."
_
"But I needed a mic to game and was tired of having a ton of wires everywhere, but I wanted good sound quality."
_
"Pros-Comfortable-Stays moderately cool and dry over hours of use (no itch from cloth ear pad covers)-Decent sound quality for virtual 7.1-Mic doesn't sound to bad, a youtube search on how you would sound is nearly spot on with reviews from people like JayzTwoCentsCons-No braided USB cable-Info mic or horribly designed, the red LED is facing away from you making you place your hand over it to see the color if it's muted-Little flimsy at the point the speaker cover and headband connect, causes rubbing that scratches the covers black coating-Mic has little to no adjustment, its a firm rubber very little flex."
_
"These headphones are the best headphones for gaming that I've owned so far and they also match the sound quality of my Audio Technica ATH-M50x headphones which is amazing."

Sound

Sound:
"The Dolby enhances the directionality of the sound, which I found quite helpful in Team Fortress 2.The sound is not as good for music."
_
"In addition, it began having problems playing sound."
_
"There was a lot of crackling and moments of dead sound before it would pick back up."
_
"I haven't seen the surround sound work with any of my games yet, which is extremely disappointing."
_
"This probably won't affect any game that has a direct toggle for the sound out put, but I found it to be a big disappointment and posted in their forums, where I saw that Corsair has said they'd look into having Windows see the device as a 7.1 output device."
_
"The mic itself I wouldn't call a con or a pro, it works but it doesn't sound great."
_
"The sound is also very good and the mic is pretty good too."
_
"Surround: The 7.1 is very clear and so good that I sometimes have to pause what I'm doing because it sounds like someone is right behind me."
_
"But I needed a mic to game and was tired of having a ton of wires everywhere, but I wanted good sound quality."
_
"These do sound good."
_
"The overall sound from this headset is good for gaming."

Surround

Surround:
"Very good headset, unfortunately I have no other comparison as its my first 7.1 virtual surround sound headset but I think it is excellentPros:- Infomic is pretty cool with its led indicators- virtual 7.1 surround is much more immersive in games- CUE software makes customizing this headset a breeze- Must have if you are a fan of corsair productsCons:- CUE software can be too much for some people as it looks somewhat complicated (though its a vast improvement over day one launch)Why 3 stars?"
_
"Surround: The 7.1 is very clear and so good that I sometimes have to pause what I'm doing because it sounds like someone is right behind me."
_
"It was relatively easy to switch the Dolby Surround on and off."

Wireless:
"I had another wireless headset and it was horrible!"
_
"The second is the wireless reception is kind of weak."

_
"The mic is good enough, and the wireless is surprisingly great."
_
"Best wireless headset I've ever used for gaming."
_

_
"I also feel that the wireless is faster to connect and more reliable than the G930's - although that could be subjective impression."
_
"All of that considered these headphones still sound amazing, are exceptionally comfortable, are wireless (albeit with some issues) and cost less than 150$."
