from completed build Teldarian's i9 1080ti sli
Is it the best headset I've ever used? Besides the fact its wireless and is part of the corsair ecosystem, there are a few things I think are lackluster or cause issues. Now, with it's price point, its very well done and the reason it's 4 stars instead of 3. I would purchase this over a Kraken for sure, but a few things irritate me with it.
You cannot adjust the microphone's position in terms of distance it extends out towards your mouth. You can either rest it on your chin, or above your mouth. I'm a "loud breather" or you can just say I'm a swimmer and a smoker and I move more air than my case. If I could adjust it out, I wouldn't have the issue. Not the case, so everyone complains, I go to PTT, and we start losing. The depth of bass is a little lacking, but the 7.1 makes up for it, which is a by and large far beyond Razer's performance in that regard. If I could adjust the position of the microphone with distance from my mouth, rather than attempting to do so via the headband, I would give it 5/5.
TL;DR: Better headsets out there? Yes. Better headsets out there for this price: No. Still, make the mic flexible, and I'd gladly spend the extra 20 dollars.

Purchased for quality and wireless feature. Very reasonable priced and the swivel movement of the ear cups were essential for comfort and long gaming. However, after one year I had battery issues, I'd recommend only using the Corsair supplied charging cable if you need to charge. Also is the 2.4Ghz wireless, and this was a good thing at first I thought, but like other tech like the HTC Vive. I found the signal directly to my head was actually causing headaches. I am not sure if this is psychosomatic or actually EMF. Unfortunately without an EMF reader I won't be able to confirm.

Pros . light & comfy headset (not for long time +4 hrs), battery, range.
Cons. echos & mixed music sound when turn on Dolby 7.1, no deep bass (sub-woofer level), noise at high pitch sound, driver (no 7.1 channel test, new driver make windows recognized it as 7.1), mic noise, unchangeable ear cups, no USB base or extended cable, slips when moving face down, Annoying beep sound when battery is low (cannot be disabled).

Comfortable, good sound for a gaming mic, pretty cheap, and mic quality is good for the price as well. I like the on-ear controls for volume/mic and the LED on the mic telling you battery life and mic on/of status is super useful.
I wish RGB was not part of this headphone though. The RBG drains the battery SO fast it's almost useless. I'm talking like maybe an hour or two with RGB on. Off it lasts a while which is how i have it now, but the RGB did not seem to be thought through. Without the RGB this would be an awesome set.
Works with a USB wireless connector that is about the size of a standard usb stick. Havent had any connection issues

Sound is great, mic is great for Skype and what not. Only issue are that it cant overcharge, or it starts to decrease the battery life. But it is wireless so I can use it from basically anywhere in the house with few to no connection problems
