Corsair CA-HS1A Gaming Audio Series HS-1 Analog Gaming Headset

Seriously let down by its cables

bcschmerker4

Pros: Reasonably flat response

Cons: Cable conductors undersize resulting in premature failure

I originally purchased the HS-1A when I was still on Bethel Island in East Contra Costa, CA, USA, as a test item; 50mm transducers were an up-and-coming item at the time.  Sound proved a little better than the PlantronicsĀ® GAMECOMĀ® 380 that would supersede them.  The sound went bad, however, after only three months; when I opened the right earcup to investigate, I found much to my...

Astro A50 Wireless Headset

Pros: Sturdy and pretty comfortable

Cons: Limited presets; too much bass for FPS use; sound not customizable; charge does not last 8-10 hours

They probably won't break if you throw them at the wall; this may be a good thing, since it's quite likely that you'll want to.

SKULLCANDY SLYR Circumaural Headset

“I bought these due to morbid curiosity; Skullcandy made a gaming headset? I figured I try them out because I was getting tired of my X12s, which had replaced my X11s. The SLYRs have now replaced my X12s. One fact to know about these headphones are that they were mostly designed by Astro Gaming, as Skullcandy bought them. This changes everything The sound quality is astounding and...” --Koenigseggfire

Sennheiser G4ME ZERO Over-Ear Gaming Headset

“I was really excited about getting this headset for my setup.  I was pretty disappointed with them, though.  The sound isn't that great of quality and it doesn't muffle ambient noise at all.  It's almost like you don't even have headphones on while you are wearing them.  So if you are in an even remotely noisy setting and that is part of the reason for getting these, don't. ...” --Wolfgazm

“Just got these as an upgrade from my Philips SHG7980 headset. Straight out of the box, they sound great, no equalizer setting modification required. Just plug the headset and get immersed in movies and games. The bass is definitely what makes this headphone shine.   Club/rock/dubstep music: perfect with Asus Xonar DGX sound-card (dolby headphone: enabled) Gaming: best when used...” --b3roldan

Razer HP-1 Barracuda 8-Channel Gaming Headphones

“These are my everyday gaming and music cans for like 10 years now through two sets of them. The bass response is unparalleled with USB powered built-in amplification and a dedicated 40 mm subwoofer driver. I imagine to get the same bass you would have to buy another can with a dedicated bass driver, and some do exist from different makers, but no one did it as clean as the razer barracuda....” --indopler

Sennheiser G4ME ONE Over-Ear Gaming Headset

“ So the Game One seemed like the answer to all my gaming needs, especially as an upgrade to my ageing Logitech G430/230. An integrated volume control and mutable mic go towards this being an amazing all round headset for gaming. The build quality is very nice and I love the styling of the headset (Black/Red). The sound is very clear, compared to other gaming headsets I have used including...” --Thekarma

Wireless Stereo Headset

“Overall i would say the PS3 headset was a good purchase. It worked well and maintained its quality throughout lifetime of 3 years.   Price of $99.99 is too expensive considering the quality you are getting. The creaking of the headset is amplified when put on and can get extremely annoying.   Very cool design with a sleek way of adjusting volume, balance of voice and game, and...” --Eschock
