Simply outstanding. Everything was in one piece when it arrived from ups. the quality is just amazing. When i use ventrilo my friends said there is zero hissing or other sounds.. just crystal clear sound. I noticed in black ops the 5.1 was amazing..i could hear bullets hissing by and even foot steps far away..Now as for a closed headset these rock! I don;t hear much outside the headset (like the wife yacking about the new kids on the block concert etc.) JUST AMAZING quality and sound. i have been using the ear pieces that came attached on the headset for about 5 hours so far and they feel comfortable. I have a big head and ears and they fit with plenty of room. the case is very nice as well. Kind of a canvas protective bag. I would definitely recommend everyone buy a set of these.

I'm using this headset with my Windows 7 HTPC living room PC (about 18' away from my seat) and it's worked great. The sound quality is nice, and the lag is barely noticable. The headset is comfortable for long wear and it's nice that the mic is removable when it's not needed. Setup with the included CD was a breeze and the batteries seem to last on one charge for quite some time. I use it to listen to music and TV when my nieces sleep over so that I don't disturb them!

These headphones are very expensive, it was quite the gamble to buy them. But, they are very good and i'm glad that I did, I play WOW and sometimes have my headphones on for 10 hours at a time, these cup my whole ear and drown out any other sound in my house. I highly recommend these to anyone.

I would recommend this headset to anyone looking for a top notch gaming headset.

After my old crappy headset broke, I decided I would try to get a new one. After searching for quite a while, I saw these and just had to have them. This headset is ridicously comfertable, and after long hours of use, my ears are still left unbothered. The sound quality is very nice, now in counterstrike It's much easier to hear the enemy coming. The only problem I have had with this headset, is that the sound will leak onto my microphone, but I have had very minimal complaints about that so far.

Review:

I'll start off by saying these are very good headphones. Great sound, better bass then on my Turtle Beach headphones. Voice chat is crystal clear and the mic pics up my voice perfectly according to my friends on skype. My only negative is they are relatively small and I have a pretty big head so they are pretty tight on me. They also aren't comfortable after long usage and they tend to get very hot. I usually end up having to take them off for a bit after I've had them on for a while because they are bothering my head, both the tightness and the heat. But sound quality is great and they do exactly what I need them to. Good product, would recommend.

Review:

I didn't know what to expect when I picked up the Tactic 3D Omega. Bloggers and techies have been talking about the headset since it was announced, and it turns out the hype was well deserved. I am so impressed with this headset that I'll probably be grabbing two more for my nephews this Christmas. The 50mm drivers sound AMAZING, the THX options make the audio completely customizable (I haven't even really gotten to take advantage of this yet just because there are so many possibilities), and there's also an additional inline volume control if you want to use the Omega with your Xbox 360. 5/5, haven't found anything I don't like about this headset yet.

These headphones were worth the price, with an inbuilt controller to switch between your speaker system and your 7.1 headphones. The speakers feature dynamic volume control allowing you to change each of your speaker levels individually. Easy to install and amazing sound.

Only problem with the device is the sensitive mute button, although not much of a problem.

Review:

By all means, the Vengeance 1300 isn't really geared towards Audiophile who want excellent, clear sound for music/movies. I didn't buy them for media, for I already have a $150 2.1 system. I bought them for VOIP and games, and it excels in both of these categories. The bass isn't over done like most headsets these days, and audio is clear. I can easily hear foot steeps in CS:S and the ambient sounds in World of Warcraft. It's awesome to hear the wind breeze by or the birds chirping away! The microphone is top of the line. Everyone says I sound extremely clear.

If your looking for a fantastic headset for VOIP and games, look no further. Corsair did a awesome job with these!

I'll have to agree with the other good reviews here, I have had these for a couple weeks and they are just awesome. The exposions are full of base and feel much more real than I have ever heard in games. The materials are heavy and solid and feel great. They are worth the money.
