Labs Brief: Corsair Raptor HS40

 

Compared to the headphones covered a step to the left, these, at half the price, stack up quite well. Built around 40mm drivers, the sound is certainly acceptable for what we'd consider budget cans. Music, games and movies were tested, and in general...

A rare mis-step from Corsair.

Corsair Raptor HS40 Review

 

A little while ago Corsair acquired Raptor Gaming to bolster their entry level peripherals, we now look to the new HS40 USB gaming headset.

Choosing an entry headset on a tight budget can seem fairly daunting as you never know what to expect amongst the hoards of cheap looking plastic 'clackyphones'. However, in a sub £40 market, it is understandable that there are various aspects that...

Corsair Raptor HS40 - Great until they break.

 

Not Recommended! Would not buy again.

Sound quality was good until they broke. Fairly comfortable fit. Affordable.

These broke after one year of daily use. The inline volume control is poorly designed, it's bulky and located in just the right spot where it gets snagged on everything. After these broke i took apart the volume control, the tiny wires have no slack...

Don't buy

 

Filed a RMA with Corsair but they want me to pay out of pocket to mail them in while pushing strict package rules upon me. Never buying from this brand again.

Good sound, when it doesn't short out or BSOD my PC. Relatively comfortable.

Volume control has a short, which disconnects the headset and occasionally causes a hardware-based BSOD. Used this headset maybe 5 hours in the last year.

Very Bad Headset

 

Do not get this, even if it is 50 dollars.

The sound quality is okay.

The microphone constantly sounds like someone is blowing into it and you can not make out anything anything you are saying.

Corsair HS40

 

IF I had known this little piece of information, I would have went with a different set, but as no one had mentioned it, I got them. OS compatibility for virtual surround should be a primary concern for a company that NORMALLY makes really good gear. I...

Souonds great, more or less. (Explain below) Fits my big melon. Nice quality mic

Only 1 con as of this moment, and it is a MASSIVE one.. Corsair, in their brilliance, have not came up with a Windows 10 driver for it you. So, instead of surround, you have basic headset with mic.

Broke in 2 month's - replacement broke in less then 1 month.

 

DO NOT BUY.

Comfortable but irrelevant since you are buying a working headset not ear muffs.

Cheap flimsy construction that breaks INCREDIBLY quickly.

Skip this headset.

 

Worked fine until it broke.

Terrible construction. I purchased this head set less than 4 months ago and one of the ear pieces broke off. This product was used VERY gently in that time period. I have a big boy job and I can't game as much as I would like. Would not recommend.

Scrapped in 3 months

 

Overall a really nice headset for the price, but I just cant recommend it due to the phones' internals messing up and causing errors so soon into its lifespan. Would get 4 stars if it had lasted a year or two.

USB connection very sleek and smooth finish nice looking headset sound quality was nice, but not great cord length is just right

USB connection error as reported by others within 3 months of use Uncomfortable for long periods of use
