Can Corsair muscle in on Sennheiser's headphone territory?

Comfortable ; Good sound quality

USB only ; A little pricey

Corsair HS1 Gaming Headphones - Good Stuff or Average Joe?

 

It promises to captivate you ears.

At a price of Rs. 4,999, you might say it’s a wee bit expensive, but the quality that it delivers is worth every single penny you’ve spent on it. Right from the moment you wear it, till the instant you take it off, you’re left with a smile on your...

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...

The famous memory maker enters the competitive field of gaming headsets. See here how the company fared.

Easy to transport ; Good sound isolation ; Comfortable headrest ; Back-lit volume control ; Long cable ; USB connection makes it independent of the quality of the sound card ; Versatile: good for music listening, gaming and watching movies ; Reaches...

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...

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...
