I had the Corsair HS1-A and they are pretty nice but they do lack bass. They are extremely confortable though and the sound is pretty clear. I broke them so I got true 5.1 headphones,the Trion PC510 HDA. Ido feel they are superior to the corsair's, the spatialization is incredible and they have a lot more bass which which make tanks really sound like tanks. They are not as confortable as the Corsair though. My soundcard is a XFI XtremGamer.
