    I own this headset and something I wanted to point out is it does indeed have a mute. When the mic boom is raised all the way upright the mic automatically mutes until you lower it again. Cheers.

    1. Greg Schepers

      Thanks for the information! I looked through all of the documentation provided with the product and I also checked the products page on the Corsair site… I could not find anything that shared that information. Anyway, now I know why my teammates can’t hear me at times. I like to position my microphone boom at about nose level rather than right in front of my mouth. What I need to determine is at what boom position does the mute function switch on/off? I’ll figure it out and share my findings. Thanks once again!

      1. Greg Schepers

        *Reporting back regarding the boom position that triggers the mute function:

        Utilizing the Corsair Gaming Headset Control Panel’s microphone check function, I discovered that the microphone cuts off at about eye level on me. So, considering the microphone boom has about 120° of swing in it, I would estimate that the mute function engages at ~60°.

        Thanks again Nonprophet!

    The audio for me is perfect, the only thing i have a problem with is the mic…. But apperently it’s ONLY me that has a problem. It’s really low no matter what, pc and ps3.
    I can’t find anything about it.

    My set broke after three months of regular use.

    1. Greg Schepers

      Sorry to hear that Deno. What broke on the headset? I used mine almost daily for at least six months with no issues. I still use it occasionally, but I’ve tested and used many other headsets in the past several months, so it doesn’t get the same amount of use.
