Corsair HS60 Pro Surround Headset Review

Rating: 7.5.

Corsair released the original HS60 back in February 2018 and today we take a look at the updated model, the HS60 Pro Surround. It comes with a slightly more affordable price point of £64.99 and Corsair have supposedly made improvements to the performance and comfort for a better experience over the older model. Is this a headset worth buying?

Pros: 

  • Good sound.
  • 3.5mm jack can be used on multiple devices.
  • Clear microphone that can be removed.
  • Attractive design.
  • Braided cable.
  • Can be used with iCUE software for extra functionality.

Cons: 

  • Fits quite tightly and can be uncomfortable.
  • Sounds better without the 7.1 surround dongle.
  • Microphone noise cancelling isn’t very effective.

KitGuru says: The HS60 Pro Surround makes improvements over the previous version but can still be uncomfortable for long periods of use. However we think it is worth considering for Corsair lovers on a budget.
