Over the years Corsair has built a strong brand around offering high quality components, usually at relatively high prices. The last few years have seen the company place more focus on the budget end of the market, however, and today’s review is a continuation of that – with a look at the new HS35 headset, priced at £39.99. Offering simple plug-and-play functionality, the HS35 is an analog headset designed to provide decent audio and a good mic, with none of the additional extras to drive up the cost. Is it any good?
Designed to sit under the HS50 in Corsair’s product stack, the new HS35 uses a trusty 3.5mm jack, meaning it can be used across a range of devices – from your phone or laptop, to a Nintendo Switch or PS4. Despite its low price, Corsair highlights its memory foam ear cups and ‘custom-tuned 50mm audio drivers’, and impressively it still boasts a detachable microphone.
