Corsair HS1 USB Circumaural Gaming Headset Review

The Corsair HS1 USB Gaming Headset is designed for gamers who are serious about audio. The HS1 uses massive 50mm drivers deliver serious gaming punch, without sacrificing the sparkling sound quality you need to enjoy music and movies. The headphones are topped of with a noise-canceling microphone that ensures that your teammates and opponents hear you loud and clear.


We found the Corsair HS1 USB Gaming Headset to have an excellent build quality and rather good sound quality for a company that is just getting into audio products for the very first time. The 50mm drivers and the enclosed ear cups offer great mid-range tones and, to our surprise, high-range tones didn't sound half bad either.

What happened to the PC speaker market? When I bought my Logitech Z-5300's back in the day there were 10+ good sets of 5.1 speaker sets I could've picked from. A quick glance at Newegg only shows 4 options (3 of which are Logitech). If this is the case then why even make a 5.1 or 7.1 soundcard? Is it more for people who run their PC through an amp and it's speakers? Maybe since I've never gamed on a headset I don't know what I'm missing. Kudos to Corsair for making a good headset but I'd personally like to see more speaker setups being offered.
