    Just one 3.5mm stereo, so no "real" surround sound. Move along please, move along.

    It was never marketed as a surround sound headset AFAIK .

    Good review and witht eh price drop I am tempted to buy a pair and run them vs my plantronics headset and see who wins.

    So does anyone have this?

    I'm thinking of buying these as a short term measure before I can get new PC 360 to replace my 350's.

    Re: Reviews - Corsair HS1A analogue gaming headset review

    Using a pair at the moment.

    They need a lot of tweeking with the EQ to get right but sound very nice once you get there.

    Very light and comfy. Damn cheap at the moment also

    Are you using a sound card with them?

    I read a lot of reviews on Newegg how bad the bass is and how low the volume is, but it seems a lot of these guys complaining about are using onboard sound chips. While people who have a sound card like me report that the headset sounds really good with good bass.

    Still confused if I should purchase these or buy a £10 mic and tape it to my PC350's, but for the sake of £20 more, could get a other nice headset.

    But I can't decide if these Corsairs have better sound over my PC350's.

    Using an XFi Titanium.

    There's nothing wrong with the volume of them but as I said, they certainly needed tweaking on the EQ.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    I decided to keep with my PC350's and just buy a clip-on mic (Speedlink version) and tape it to my mic boom till Christmas, they sound too awesome to give up.
