Labs Brief: Corsair Raptor HS40

 

Corsair adds to its Raptor range with a pair of less than convincing cans.

The HS40’s are quite large – used on what we’d rate as a large head they needed to be reduced to the smallest band size to fit comfortably. In the land in which they were designed the people must have noggins the size of watermelons...

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...

I Wouldn't

 

It has some qualities and if you can tame and save the wire. they are not too bad.

Good for watching TV. The Volume/Mute button is nice. Mic is clear

Cable went bad after 6 months of use. Right above the volume/mute button ; Low bass ; Awful for music ; Meh for games ; Wire wanted nothing more than to tangle up

How in the heck?!

 

This obviously does not have a sound card. Basically what you have is the complete headset with an inline controller, with a retractable microphone, and that's it. Though I had to RMA a pair of headphones because the computer didn't recognize it the...

Great sound ; Awesome fit ; Push-button controls, as opposed to the potentiometer control or sliding switch which get rusty when they're not moved around

None that I'm physically aware of, apart from not being able to curve the microphone close to my face

half bad

 

As weirdly as it may sound , whenever my headset failed , so did my M90 Corsair Mouse 3 seconds after.

The price , less than 60 tx+shipping included for a 7.1 is worth it

Ordered 2 , 1 work still perfectly , the other already have an issue with the volume control on the wire. The wire inside that box seem broken
