Corsair have a well earned reputation for producing quality products, regardless of the market they are targeting. Last summer they released their USB HS1 gaming headset which offered built in USB processing and quality audio output, all for a reasonable asking price of £70. Today we are looking at the followup, the analogue oriented ‘HS1A’.
The Corsair HS1A is created for gamers who want higher quality audio output from their own sound card. As many of us know, gaming headsets are often adjusted to deal with compressed audio, making them less than ideal for listening to quality media files.
The HSA1 uses large 50mm drivers which Corsair claim have been carefully tuned during development for maximum performance. They are a circumaural, closed back design which should offer longer term comfort combined with immersive audio sound quality.
- Massive 50mm drivers for high-quality audio reproduction
- Detailed audio reproduction with clean, accurate bass and sparkling clarity in mids and highs
- Circumaural, closed-back earcups for superior noise isolation
- Memory foam earpads provide a custom fit that won’t weigh you down
- Includes two sets of earpads to customize your comfort – your choice of microfiber or synthetic leather
- Noise-cancelling microphone with flexible, rotating boom works great for in-game chat, Skype, and other VOIP applications
