Best wireless headset right now!

  • Solidly built
  • Good sound
  • Microphone sounds "dull"

I'm glad I made this investment and waited for it to go the sale! The headset looks very robust and also feels like a solid device. The installation did mean that I had to restart my PC a few times before the hardware worked properly (no sound but mic input after installing software) The bag that comes with it is a nice extra, but it was not necessary for me. The 7.1 surround sound makes this headset ideal for shooters such as Counterstrike where hearing is very important! The sound also sounds very clean, the bass is not boosted but nice and clean, high tones also sound good and not faded. Big tip: make sure you mute your microphone when you go to the toilet with the headset on....

High price, good quality

  • Plug and play in Windows10 and Linux (Ubuntu 20.04)
  • Reasonably long battery life
  • Fit is not for everyone

Bought the product after a search for reviews about different types of gaming headsets. After seeing a video of JayzTwoCents, I made the choice for this headset. I've had it for a few days now and use it almost every day. I can't complain about the battery life, the indicated life on 1 cycle is around 20 hours. I turned off the lights myself, I don't see them when I have the headset on and it improves the battery life immensely. The fit will not be for everyone. I have a fairly small head, so the headset doesn't clamp too hard against my ears. The speakers in the headset also don't really have a cupping, so you can hit the side of the speaker if you have large ear cups. The sound quality is good, the microphone sounds good (one of the better microphones on a gaming headset, if you really want it better then you have to look at an external microphone) and the software support in iCue is also good (under Linux you have ckb-next but the headset is not yet supported, especially aimed at Corsair keyboards). Just to get straight to the point: the price of 189 euros is quite high. You do get quality for it: a headband and earcups made of leather, decent aluminum speaker housing with integrated RGB lighting and a microphone that you plug into the *mini* USB connection (perfect fit though).

best headset in its price range

  • very comfortable to wear even during long gaming sessions
  • This is the SE version so it just looks very good all you see is aluminum instead of plastic as with the standard version
  • battery life

I bought this for 125 euros as a second chance. You won't find a better headset for this price (I had a steelseries 7) The microphone is very good only had compliments on the reproduction of my voice. In short, if you want something super good, you no longer have to search. I have almost everything from corsair and the ique software is very nice/easy to use.

Do your research before considering it.

  • Very nice design
  • Detachable Micro
  • Sound quality very, very poor

After 6 years, my previous headset is slowly giving up its micro (Razer Kraken 7.1). So, time for a replacement and this one looked sleek and a lot of good can be found on youtube. However, when connecting the microphone, the sound was HUGE. - A huge dull/vague sound which is really nauseating. - iCue's EQ is more unresponsive than it is. - After uninstalling drivers & reinstalling it was better, as you would expect. But this was already done after 1 min. - Quality audio skips continuously. From dull to clear and dull again. - Cracks very loudly if he has to forward sound from any board to another board - Crack just by listening to podcasts. Especially when the EQ does respond and you increase the bass a bit. - Absolutely no bass if the software won't cooperate. Which is almost always with me. - Microphone picks up every bit of background noise (even a ticking clock far away). This cannot be improved as there is no background noise remover available for it. - Microphone sounds like you are in a tunnel. - Top of headset starts to hurt after 10min. - Ears are against the speakers, as there appears to be hardly any space. Apparently these are all software problems after a lot of googling. But whatever "fix" is available doesn't work. Recommended? Maybe for PS4 only use, but do some research beforehand before considering buying this one. I am personally looking for another headset.

This is recommended

  • simple operation
  • sturdy material
  • small holes at RGB catches dust, impossible to get out.

This headset is made for gaming, you can also hear that from the sound. But via the corsair software (ICUE) you can make a preset that sounds better for music. unfortunately the premium carrying bag is a bit too small, so the earmuff gets a fold in the foam. When I first held the headset, I immediately got the idea that the quality was good, it doesn't feel like a piece of plastic. if you drop this you don't have to worry about something will break off. I have tested this product on a variety of devices and I have no problems with any of them. The 7.1 surround only works on Windows and macOS devices. on all other devices you will have to make do with stereo

Looks great and is OK, I guess, but you can get better gear

  • looks great!
  • sound quality of the mic is near perfect
  • not the most comfortabel headset

I own several headsets, and I'm constantly on the lookout for the most comfortabel one, since I use them not only for gaming but also for tedious Zoom meetings. The thing looks great but isn't very comfortabel. Gives an annoying pressure on the top of the head. I could live with that, but in some games, Overwatch fore example, the sound is terrible. Even worse when using bluetooth. You get a nerve wrecking crackeling sound during the intro music. Gets better when the game starts.
