Wow

 

Base is not as overwhelming as some like it, but I find it perfect.

These things are rock solid. The sound is great. Blows my razer carcharias out of the water, and all other sub $300 headphones I've tried for that matter ; Cord is very high quality ; Control pod has metal knob, well wieghted ; Great look and feel ;...

Great set for a good price!

 

The headset feels comfortable and sturdy, as does the volume control panel it comes with. Very happy with my purchase. (got it at Fry's, as I didn't want to wait to get some headphones. Only reason I didn't get it from Newegg! IT MATCHES MY CM STORM...

4 Speakers per headphone! Great sound, and the ability to distinguish direction and distance in games. Can hear EVERYTHING! Great driver and software suite

No game/chat volume adjustment

Cooler Master SGH-6000-KK5R1

 

I pretty much have a headset on me all day (freelancer so always at the comp at home), so I go through headsets fairly often, but this is the first one that ever really failed me under a year (and it's been giving me spotty issues for a month now)....

The sound was great in the 5.1 mode (never got around to trying the 7.1 virtual mode), had a decent clarity and the physical controller gives a good individual control of the placements (rear/front/center/bass) and felt comfortable on my head ; The...

Wire at the joint to the headset wore out very quickly (only had the product for roughly 7 months now) compared to other headsets I've had over the years (most will usually last me a year to a year and a half), by-feel the cabling seems very soft to...

Good Sound, not so Comfy

 

I swapped sibera v2's for these. I wanted surround. The sound is much better than the siberia's and true surround, but the extra weight and strain on my fat head wasn't worth it. * Within the first year the mic just completely died. RMA process wasn't...

Good Sound ; Surround baby ; Puck is nice

Mic went out in 1st year ; Uncomfortable and heavy

Great Sound

 

It would be nice if there was a way to control volume of a voice chat program separate from your other sound.

I love these head phones, they sound great out of the box. With a little more time spent in the EQ you can make them sound amazing. The Puck is nice and heavy and stays secure on your desk ; Also the cord is light and braided so it feels like it will...

The only con I can think if is the cord from the puck to the headset could be a little longer

Decent Headset

 

If you want a good headset, I would recommend it, but it fails completely when it comes to the microphone. I'd recommend buying a separate microphone if needed.

Great sound and decent volume. Ability to adjust sound from front speaker and back speaker in the headset is nice

Worst microphone on a headset. Stopped working and gave awful feedback for others within the first month of use. Had to purchase a desk microphone because the one on the headset was so awful. When it worked for the first part it was very quiet and had...

Great Sounding Headset

 

I bought this intending to use the 3.5mm analog connections to plug into my SB X-Fi discrete sound card. Although the audio was crisp, you can hear "board hiss" when navigating windows (clicking, moving mouse, etc.) In addition, you can't use the...

Great overall audio quality ; Positional audio in games is incredible ; Built like a tank ; Comfortable ; Mic audio is clear ; USB connection, just as good as discrete audio ; Bass boost and adjustable EQ (if using USB)

Don't buy if using analog (3.5mm) connections is a must ; Mic quality bad if using analog connections ; Cannot use the "puck" for analog connection ; analog connections (see a pattern here?) ; See review details for info about the analog connection
