if these were a 100 bux, i could see them selling.

if these did not look disgustingly bad, they would also sell more.

i considered buying these back when they had the 100$ off on the preorders, but i will be damned if i am paying 300$ for phones sight unseen, with mediocre reviews. I understand where they are coming from with its gaming phones not music etc. But i use my pc for a lot more than just gaming. I am watching videos and music, and what have you. I don't see any point in having to swap phones out for each function. It just doesn't make sense. Its the same reason when i was looking for a headset before i ruled out steel series phones, as they are tweaked for gaming as well, so footsteps and gunshots are more pronounced.

We wanted to give you the low down on the HardOCP review. Psyko was surprised and disappointed by the negative comments on the review and we suspected there was something wrong with the headphone being used. When we inspected the headset we found that the headphones in the review had been damaged and the waveguides had split open. This is very unusual. That being said, the waveguides are essential to delivering the sound and if they are broken they will not perform correctly.

Please let us know directly if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.

Yes, I have a question. When will you be sending them a fully-functioning set to re-review?

It all comes down to whether HardOCP is WILLING to do a re-review in this case IMO.

I have seen them take second looks at other products in the past, so I hope they would consider it if Psyko contacts them and asks politely.
