As you can no doubt tell, PC Perspective got a HUGE and much needed facelift over the weekend to what we are internally calling "PC Perspective v4.0".  I know there are still some kinks to work out and we are actively addressing any feedback from our readers in this comment thread.  

But we want to celebrate the launch of the new site in style!!  Some of our site sponsors have very generously offered up some prizes for us to give out throughout the coming days...

The fourth set of prizes is a pair of Corsair Gaming Audio Series HS1 Headsets!

View Full Size

Winners of this contest will be able to choose if they prefer the HS1 USB-based model or the HS1A analog connection model.  Check out the review I linked above as these are some very nice headphones with an MSRP of $99!!

What do you have to do to win this wonderful piece of hardware?

Couldn't be easier: post a comment in this post thanking Corsair for its sponsorship of PC Perspective as well as the worst audio configuration you have ever owned!  Fess up, what junk have you bought at Best Buy for $9.99??

You should probably have a registered account or at least be sure you include your email address in the appropriate field so we can contact you!

We will pick the winners tomorrow and move on to the next hardware that finds its way to PC Perspective offices.  Good luck and thanks for reading!!

Thanks Corsair for sponsoring PC Perspectives.

I'm still using a cheap headset from a Microsoft/Amd seminar many years ago. The foam on the left side is just dangling.

Thanks Corsair for the sponsorship of PCperspective and this giveaway. My work audio configuration was a set of no name speakers that came with my e-machine PC about 9 years ago.They didn't have anything on them not even volume adjustment or a power button.

Thanks for sponsoring PCperspective Corsiar. My worst audio setup would be a cheap pair of gummy headphones, while I saved up enough money to replace my busted speakers.

Thanks corsair for sponsoring PC Perspective. It is companies like you that make sites like this possible. As for worst audio setup, I would have to go with a pair of Altec Lansing speakers on my first PC.

Thank You Corsair for sponsoring Ryan and PCPer. The worst audio I have endured was digging out my old original SOCOM headset that had dry rotting foam pads to use during raids.

Thank you, Corsair, for your continued support of PCPer - a team, site and podcast as good as the excellent products you produce :-)

Sound is important to me as I'm a professional in the world of music performance and production, so I've never bought anything rubbish. Sorry :-/

Thanks, Corsair. I would love a pair of your awesome headphones.

Thanks Corsair, you're awesome! The worst audio setup is the one I have at work. I'm using an unbranded 2.0 speaker setup that looks like it's from the 90s. Horrible sound compared to anything really.

Thank you cosair, my audio configuration blows chunks

Thank you Corsair for supporting pcperspective. Worse headset I have ever owned was a cheap set from Logitech.

SSD's, Cases, & Coolers, OH MY!

Thanks for sponsoring PC Perspective, Corsair!

That headset looks epic.

Thanks Corsair for sponsoring PC perspective! The worst audio setup I have ever owned is having to use the speakers on my TV which are mounted on the back and project the sound away from me and sound flat and have no bass at all!

April 21, 2011 | 06:10 PM - Posted by 66pens

Thanks Corsair. I've always had good audio.

Corsair rocks!! Thank you for the impressive products.

My worst audio configuration would have to be the $1800 case I just built with plenty of corsair parts in it and I forgot the damned headset so I'm using the evil and irritating Apple iPhone earbuds. What in the heck was I thinking?

Thanks for sponsoring PCperspective, Corsair and the giveaway. My worst audio was on board when it quit working and only had one channel left and it was the center channel.....

Thanks to Corsair and PCPer for having such a great contest. Nice of Corsair to sponsor the contest and give away a sweet set of headset.

Got a really cheap set of headphones when I got my first iPod, they were horrible and lasted maybe a week.

Thanks for sponsoring, Corsair!

Go ahead, give me an upgrade to my Sen 650's. Thanks!

A big thanks to Corsair for sponsoring this giveaway. The crappiest sound system I have ever owned was a $10 Crystal radio when I was a kid.

Thanks Corsair!
I have had some bad setups but the worst were the speakers mounted to my 14" CRT from 1995

Thanks to Corsair for their support!! Actually just built a new pc inside a Corsair 650D and it's pretty nice.

My worst audio config consisted of some decent sennheiser headphones that I drilled holes in the frame and ran extra wires across the top to try and attach a mic off of another cheaper headset. I initially tried to make it pretty and enclosed but quickly degraded into duct tape and zip ties.

Thanks Corsair and PCPer! Gaming with earbuds was probably the worst audio setup i have tried.

April 21, 2011 | 06:45 PM - Posted by Herlof pedersen

Thanks corsair! The sponsoring of the event is awesome! Great way to help out the community!

I had a set of Logitech headphones that did their job. Mic and headset that just recently gave out. So I'm using some USB speakers for my laptop that are holding their own, and a free set of ear-bud headphones when I don't want to bother my roommate. No mic though so my games are very silent with friends.
