Corsair Raptor HS30 and HS40 Gaming Headsets Reviewed


The Corsair Raptor HS30 and HS40 are flawed mainstream-priced gaming headsets with a questionable ergonomic design and poor music playback performance that required aggressive equalization to correct.

Corsair Raptor HS30 Gaming Headset Review

Failed after 6 months NEVER misued


Garbage, avoid.


One ear failed after 6 months. Cord was never wound up, wadded up, or otherwise abused. One day the connection was spotty, the next day it didn't work at all ; Control box on cable is in a terrible location- just right to constantly get hung up on...

Not too good


It came in a nice package and was very organized.

The quality is good enough but not the best. The wire length is good and the noise cancelling is good

The mic is too far away from the mouth than it should be. I found out that the microphone audio is very bad and has static. The headset is uncomfortable for me to wear for my amount of gaming hours

"Okay" headphones, bad mic.


I'm planning to immediately hand these off to my significant other, and we will test them to see if they happen to work better with her laptop and on-board sound. I plan to invest in the 1500's next when I have the money. The reviews that say you'll...

Looks nice, seemed promising ; Got it on sale ; Extremely comfortable

Mic seems to either be defective or outright poor quality, I mean REALLY terrible, it's literally unusable using 3 different inputs, my rear dedicated soundcard panel, my onboard sound, and my external soundcard ; I tried adjusting settings, this is...

bad from the start


I installed these in my pc with a creative sound blaster x-fi extreme gamer sound card and all was ok except for the mic static, which is exceptionally loud with mic boost on(which u need on with this headset since no one can hear you without it). i...

fit and comfort

tons of static from mic when speaking (i was forced to put on my old headset so i can actually have a conversation without some complaining about the noise coming from the mic), sound is extremely hollow and unimpressive, also have a problem with it...

Paying $55 for a heatset you would assume it would just work but with low sound quality, well, this headset doesn't even work when you plug it in. The constant static noise from the microphone and the chess match you have to play to get sound to work...

Very comfortable when wearing. The headset feels to be pretty solid and doesn't seem like it would break after daily useage

Microphone arm is very short, you have to talk very loudly for anything to work, I've tried to turn up the outbound volume but it didn't work very well ; When you are actually able to use the microphone, there is a very obvious static noise when...

Not a bad headset


all and all everything works ,its got good sound but doesn't go really loud by any means but will do the job for gaming and talking to friends. Really good buy for the price for sure. If you need a good headset for the now and your on a budget or need...

not bad sound at all ; Nice and clear ; No crackling ; Volume Control on wire ; On/Off switch

doesn't crank very loud

Consumer review by:



When the cable was in just the right position the sound was pretty good, and I was really hoping that the first pair was just a fluke. I hate to do it, but I'm just going to have to take the grandson down to Best Buy and let him try the headphones they...

They look cool

Unless Newegg simply turned around and sent back my original order, these headphones have a design flaw. Any movement of the cable causes the audio to cut in and out between a mono and stereo like feed. I just figured the first pair had a short in the...

Solid, Sturdy and Good Sound Quality


For the price of this head set you'll struggle to find a better value. I have a set of competitor headphones with a Mic that were trash after approximately 5 months. The mic fell off and the build quality was questionable from day one. With these...

1. This product is very easy to setup. Plug into the Mic and Audio ports of your computer and most modern operating systems detect them immediately ; 2. Sound quality is solid until approximately 60% of the in-line volume knob is used. Beyond this is...

1. The look is questionable. I would have preferred a solid black color scheme ; 2. The identifiers on the 3.5mm jacks are extremely difficult to read and, because they both follow the maroon red color theme of the headphones it's impossible to tell...
