Prosumer Studio Quality Headset I’ve worked in studios and have demo’d TONS of audio gear over the years. I know what a good DAC (Digita-Analogue Converter) sounds like, and I know what a crappy one sounds like. Music is probably the hardest source material to be objective about when it comes to the listening experience — everyone has their opinion, but almost nobody but studio rats really “get it” in terms of true flat response. Do these have perfect response? No. It’s just not hyped sound — there’s no built in “smiley face” EQ or any nonsense coloring the sound. Well, actually, there is, but it’s made to flatten the output as well as it can — and it does. People complain about “harsh highs” listening to music with this headset…THEIR SOURCE MATERIAL IS LOW QUALITY! Of COURSE an over-compressed MP3 file is going to sound TERRIBLE on any halfway decent DAC. Throw in a good recording of something recently done on a CD or something of equal quality (nice M4A at 256kbps or equivalent) and you’re golden…

Corsair built a top-notch headphone… I’ll give a more down to earth non-technical review …I was on the mission to find a do-all headphone. Quite impossible to do as I own many headphones. I have Bose noise canceling, Sure In-Ear, Grado’s, Sony’s and more. After reading tons of reviews, and very few reviews on the Corsairs it was a difficult choice. The main draw to the corsairs was the fact that corsair designed these headphones specifically for gaming and music listening. Go visit their website and watch their video. It is quite convincing… So I took the gamble and went for them.** For Music **When first installing them and listening I was quite disappointed… But wait!Duh… mixer. What a world of a difference. And mind you that the mixer alone must be adjusted for all kinds of music.If you just set it to one setting and listen to all sorts of genre’s then you are in for bad listening.– Windows 7 –Go into your settings:Hardware =>…
