Hope they wont start this game of buying OEM and putting their name on it with to many product. Generally it lead to the end over time...Corsair make memory,case and SSD and they should stay in there doing some good research instead of buying from other.

Hard to say since you can put the casing you want around the speaker you buy. But I am pretty confident these are not corsair made...like their Hydro series cooler.

Still, it would be nice to try a set. I'm still waiting for something similar to this in a cordless design with a reasonable price range.

True that. I really wish there was a company that got on board with Astro to carry their product lines. If your going to go with a quality gaming headset, they sound (cwutIdidthar) like the one to go with

This company is seriously diversifying, that's for sure.

Maybe this will be another Carcharias, maybe not. Hopefully it can offer some bang in the already so saturated market of gaming headsets
