Well in December 2012 I bought a Corsair 1500 Headset. No problems until now.
Right side not working whatsoever.
Problem = A red wire unsoldered (or whatever is the word).
I tried to fix it but the wire is just way too short giving me almost zero movility, in the process another wire unsoldered but whatever it was imposible to fix it anyway.
My dissapointment comes from the side that I didn't broke the exterior wie.. it was an interior wire not supossed to broke or unsoldered... I believe it is a really weak product from Corsair, I saw the same problem in many threads over the internet but well my story ended bad because I couldn't fix. I tried just for the honor
FYI RMA was not an option so I tried myself. Perhaps I should have tried in electronic store.. who knows . Maybe some day or maybe I buy a new pair but definitely not from Corsair because they are extremely expensive.. and it seems they are not so well made.
Once you play with headser you never want to play with speakers. I want surround again! But I want a decent and not that expensive.
