Corsair HS60 Haptic Headset Review

Rating: 8.5.

Today we are going to be taking you through Corsair’s first gaming headset that features haptic bass, the HS60 Haptic. Can having a physical rumble system in your headset help add to the immersion, or is it plain distracting? With a RRP of £119.99, this certainly isn’t a cheap piece of kit, and we are expecting some amazing bass that is going to blow us away as, well as a well balanced sound profile for gaming and other media. Let’s jump in.

Pros

  • Quality of the materials used.
  • Detailing (stitching and patterns grills).
  • Great build quality.
  • Concealed wiring.
  • Good on-ear controls.
  • Non-kink cable.
  • Comfortable.
  • Phenomenal and unique experience.
  • Hugely increases immersion.
  • Great sound in general and not just a gimmick.

Cons

  • Camo design won’t appeal to everyone.
  • No LED indicator for the mic and hard to find button.
  • Tiny rubber microphone port bung could go missing.
  • Paint feels like it could chip over time.
  • A little wobbly in terms of up and down motions.

KitGuru says: This headset is a great all-rounder and the design and build quality is excellent. The haptic feedback won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but with so many levels of control you are sure to find a comfortable level at least. The HS60 Haptic headset is worth the price tag and we think the haptic feedback isn’t just a gimmick, but a great way to add to the immersion while gaming or watching a film.
