Fine - while they work,
This review is from: Corsair CA-HS1AEU HS1A Gaming Headset (Accessory)
The headset looks good and works well but there is a real question mark over their durability. Mine stopped working correctly (no sound from one earpiece) after just two weeks of light use (no tugs or pulls - just picked them up to use them one morning and no sound from left side - fine the night before). This seems to be a common problem with these sets (that or losing the microphone connection.)
I'd advise anyone considering them to take a look at the Corsair forums and read through the numerous complaints there. One thread there talks about having to RMA five sets, all of which became faulty. They have a two year warranty but if you need to RMA them in the UK then you have to send them to Holland at your own expense which will cost about £16.
I didn't buy mine through Amazon so perhaps they would be more amenable about taking them back and giving a refund - their return service is usually excellent.
It's a shame - they look like a bargain but the wiring seems dubious at best.
