Corsair Hs45 Headset Review

Editor’s note: This post was updated on November 19, 2020 include our impressions of the Corsair HS60 Haptic after reviewing it, as well as answers to FAQ questions. If you’re a diehard console gamer, a headset that offers a bunch features through Corsair’s iCue desktop app may not appeal much to you. There may not be console versions of features like virtual surround sound with these headsets, but at least you don’t have to spend the extra money for it. Few people play just one kind of video game, but if you know you hate shooters, 7.1 virtual surround sound might not be a priority for you.

This app serves as a hub for pretty much everything Corsair makes— from mice, keyboards, and headsets, to internal components like RAM—and offers options for hardware optimization, color coordination with your various LED-riddled devices, and expanded audio features. Whether you spend $80 or triple that, if your new Corsair gaming headset supports virtual surround sound or spatial audio, you need iCue to turn it on.

Its low-tension band feels a little on the loose side, but that means gamers with glasses might find it more comfortable than the other options in this article. The Void RGB Elite Wireless is the most expensive, and offers the most features, but the cheaper options don’t exactly skimp out. The Void Elite Surround is a USB wired gaming headset, that offers almost all the same features are its wireless counterpart, just skipping the colored LED lights. We found the Void RGB Elite Wireless, which shares most of its hardware with the other two, sounds reasonably accurate for a gaming headset, but it’s starting to feel a little dated. Unlike the Void line, HS headsets all sport detachable 3.5mm microphones, and many rely on a 3.5mm audio connection, which means they work just about everywhere and can double as regular headphones if you need. The Corsair HS35 stereo gaming headset hits a lower price than anything else the company offers, with a lightweight all plastic build, and a bunch of different color options.

On top of the iCue-based features it offers in common with its many counterparts, Corsair claims it can last up to 16 hours of playback on a single charge—that’s hardly the most impressive number to hit, but not necessarily bad. They both sport improved battery live, durable primarily metal builds, and more sophisticated microphones than either the Void or HS headsets.

They sport more restrained LED lighting options, detachable miniUSB microphones, 7.1 surround sound through iCue. The Virtuoso SE runs for $209.99 USD, and brings a more sensitive mic than its cheaper counterpart, as well as machined aluminum headphone plates. Basically, Corsair Void headsets are decent options for gamers with glasses, but they’re a little on the old side, and even the top-of-the-line model doesn’t offer terribly accurate audio. Corsair HS headsets afford more basic options, for when you want something cheap and functional–which one you should get depends on whether you’re looking for a specific feature or platform.

Customer Reviews: CORSAIR HS45 SURROUND Wired Stereo Gaming Headset Carbon CA-9011220-NA

This headset boast about having noise cancellation on the mic side and one thing i can say is it seems to do a pretty good job. I wanted to really test the noise cancellation so i put some music on and my ceiling fan set to medium. My music did get through the mic but while on the medium volume setting it was very minimal and not much of and issue to really cause a disturbance for my teammates. Audio quality was crystal clear with no static distortion or muffling of the lower bass sounds.

The headset uses Corsair’s ICue software to be able to get in to the settings and modify your audio preference based on the gaming your doing and then map them to presets. Even though it comes at a lower price point Corsair did a very good job at cutting cost where it needed to be and added quality where it should be.

While i wouldn’t exactly recommend it for streaming it is perfect for causal online gaming with your friends and ally’s. Over all if your looking to get in to a good set while on a budget this headset is a sure fire way to go and is bound to leave you satisfied.

Corsair HS45-7.1 Virtual Surround Sound PC Review

So many games are enhanced with great audio, there are always Corsair deals to be had (no need to wait for Black Friday 2021) and there’s a massive range to chose from. High quality sound is super important when you’re playing and the speakers built into gaming monitors are pretty rubbish.

KitGuru says: with the ability to potentially use this headset across an array of devices, consoles and PCs we really like the Corsair HS45. With just a few areas to improve on the pros definitely out weigh the cons here, especially when you consider it arrives with an RRP of £44.99.

Corsair HS45 Surround review

Corsair HS60 PRO SURROUND review

Editor’s note: this Corsair HS60 review was updated on March 18, 2021, to include a table of contents, and to reflect changes in pricing. The Corsair HS60 PRO SURROUND doesn’t cater to the gamer looking for every bell, whistle, and doodad under the sun—this is for someone who needs an audio solution you can just plug in and use.

The HS60 PRO SURROUND is a solidly built gaming headset, with a lightweight metal frame and big leatherette ear pads.

The headphones sit on hinges that allow for a significant amount of tilt, meaning this headset will fit comfortably on most head shapes.

The headset’s on-ear controls are similarly straightforward; there’s a volume dial on the left ear and a mic mute button beneath it, and that’s it. In fact, the people I spoke to barely noticed a difference when I turned on the program’s various voice improvement features. I tested the headset on PC, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch (it’s compatible with Xbox One too, I just don’t own one), playing games like Overwatch, League of Legends, Dauntless, and Pokemon Sword and found it handled all of them equally well. What this means in game is explosions, which are already almost always tuned to be the loudest part of a given scene will be that much louder, mainly due to the underemphasis in the mids and highs.

The under-emphasis in the mids is particularly worth paying attention to if you play games like Fortnite or Overwatch, where audio cues like footsteps and voice lines can give you hints at enemy locations and behaviour.

If you’re listening to music, this kind of output can be totally fine for electronic or house beats, but maybe not for a lot of other genres. The underemphasized mids and highs mean the sounds of vocals, strings, and some cymbals will be harder to pick out among more prominent bass parts. There’s a pretty significant de-emphasis in the bass range, which is often due to the microphone not getting enough power, and reasonably accurate output in the mids and highs.

If you’re looking for something decent that won’t threaten the budget, the Corsair HS60 PRO SURROUND may be worth a spot on your entertainment station. The Logitech G Pro X is also a PC-centric gaming headset, and offers pretty much all the same features, but it’s mic software options are a cut above. The Razer BlackShark V2 also covers a very similar territory, but it sports some of the best isolation and most accurate audio output on the market.
