Corsair is back with a new HS1A analog headset sporting massive 50mm drivers, closed-back ear cups, and memory foam ear pads primarily designed for gaming. But Corsair tells us that these do not sacrifice "precision audio response (for) your favorite media." Let's see if these hold up in gaming
The Legit Bottom Line: For $77.54 you definitely get your money's worth and more with the Corsair HS1A Gaming Headset (CA-HS1ANA). It is a great headset for movies and gaming. Even though it lacked a little in the music playback department in my opinion, it's a gaming headset and that's
"if the HS1A was priced at $50, I would heartily recommend it, because it is much better than cheaper headsets. However, because it lacks Dolby Headphone and is only $15 cheaper than the HS1, the HS1A just isn't a good value. So, if you want to buy the HS1A, don't: buy the HS1."
"the sort of headset you could use every day without an issue, in comfort, with very low fatigue even at full volume. Build quality is always great with Corsair and we would think that this headset would last for many moons being taken around from place to place."

After a year and a half the microphone decided to go on me. As another reviewer mentioned, only certain positions will allow it to work (can't play any games that way). Very dissapointed, cheap connection or wiring inside was used obviously.
These were decent headphones at the time. It does the job, and it is comfortable but there are better alternatives like CM Storm Sonuz,Razer Carcharias, Steelseries Siberia, etc. all in similar price ranges.
After about 1.5 years of use, the microphone would only work if it was at a certain position (as you can rotate it). Also, people would have trouble hearing my voice as the volume was too low.
I'm not a sound expert, so I have no complain about the sound quality of this headset. It was working smoothly until yesterday (roughly 8 months after purchase). The microphone was dead. I was surprised that it broke so fast when I always used it with care. I mean I used to get headset cheaper than this which lasted a lot longer. I guess I'll never trust a memory manufacturer for audio devices again.
For the price (I payed 49.99) this headset is well worth it. It's nice and loud with decent bass and extremely comfortable. The mice also works well. I've read some reviews saying wiring is not the best inside and one ear can go out but I haven't experienced any problems over using them often for three months.
