Corsair HS1 USB Gaming Headset Review


Now, the first thing you're going to notice about the HS1 USB gaming headset is that it isn't the best looking set out there. It's bulky, the color choice is uninspired, and the odd decision to pad the bottom and top of the headband gives the whole...

A great-sounding, amazingly comfortable headset at a very competitive price point

Bulky; a shining example of industrial design this ain't

For one, it sounds great. That supersize chassis means more room for big, beefy 50mm drivers. These give the HS1 clear highs and bass that’s great for a pair of headphones. The dynamic range is also stellar, letting everything from gunshots to quiet,...

Corsair CA-HS1NA USB Gaming Headset


50mm drivers, excellent sound quality, Interesting software extras, Noise cancelling, unidirectional mic, Memory foam ear pads, One of the most comfortable headsets, Study and flexible

Needs frequent settings adjustments to get optimal experience, Low mic volume, PC only

It may be pure coincidence or genuine quality, but somehow the Corsair HS1NA USB Gaming Headset hit a sweet spot. It is instantly my favorite headset for listening to music, watching movies, and gaming. Much of it can be attributed to the fine-tuned...

Corsair HS1 Gaming Headset


Premium USB headset that will turn heads.

Since audio is such an intimate personal experience, and highly subject to individual preferences, it's not an easy market to tackle. However, as we've seen Corsair make careful jumps into new component markets, they've shown a willingness to get...

Well-rounded sound, but lacks intensity even after equalization ; Software lowers the microphone volume at its volition ; Cloth-wrapped phones make the ears run hot

Corsair HS1 USB Gaming Headset Review


With so many headsets to choose from on the market these days, manufacturers have been trying to create a product that sets them apart from the mainstream. Corsair has designed the HS1 to simulate the couch listening experience so the music is not “in...

Designed with long term gaming session in mind, never pinched or hurt my ears during use ; Plenty of options with configurable software (including fun voice effects) ; Gave clear and accurate positioning of enemies in game ; Cord is super long with...

No control over anything but volume/ mic mute without alt-tabbing out of game ; No control over amping up rear speaker sounds (desirable to make sure enemy footsteps sneaking up behind you are heard over gunfire in FPS...

The Corsair HS1 USB Gaming Headset is one of the best all-around packages I've seen to date. Its software fully compliments the hardware without causing problems or interrupts in gameplay. The Corsair HS1 is affordably priced for the gaming audiophile,...

Corsair HS1 USB Gaming Headset Review


Corsair enters the audio market for the first time with a competitively priced USB gaming headset, the HS1.

The Corsair HS1 exceeded my expectations when it came to sound quality. Although it's far from reaching the level of higher-end headphones, it is surprisingly good for a $100 headset using the USB interface. The majority of high-end headsets don't go...

Corsair HS1 USB Gaming Headset Review →


The Corsair HS1 with 50mm drivers is certainly a very good set of gaming headset. The ability to customize the sound signature of each of the virtual speakers makes for one potent combination that should appeal to a wide range of audiences.

Volume control over individual virtual channels ; Extremely intuitive and easy to use software ; Stylish good looks ; Surround sound works very well ; Extremely comfortable ; Long braided cable ; Low resource / lightweight software ; Massive 50mm...

No ability to change from stereo to virtual surround sound except via software ; Voice changer options are gimmicky ; No travel case included ; Extremely forward mids and highs in default setup ; Bass is less than expected from 50mm drivers
