Corsair HS45 SURROUND Gaming Headset Review

Rating: 8.5.

Corsair are known for their high-quality gaming peripherals but what happens when they release a budget friendly headset for PC & console gamers alike? The HS45 SURROUND is born, at a low price point with an emphasis on comfort and multiplatform compatibility. The choice between a 3.5mm analog connection and a USB PC adapter for virtual 7.1 surround sound, a removable noise cancelling discord approved microphone and custom Neodymium 50mm audio drivers.
