Corsair is a household name for making peripheral devices and yet again there is another great product by them in the market which is Corsair HS70 Wireless Gaming Headset.
Corsair HS70 Wireless is a gaming headset. It comes as a wireless option of its previous HS60 variant and both are quite similar in many aspects. The headset comes with a good build and body, decent and comfortable padding on the head cups and headband.
The removable boom microphone is reasonable, and you have the option to use the Corsair iCUE software to tailor the sound of your headset. The downside is that the headset can’t be used passively with an audio cord but the plus aspect is that it comes with a long 15-hours battery that will last more than your normal gaming day.
Here you will find the list of features that comes on the headset.
Style and Versatility: The Corsair HS70 WIRELESS GAMING headset design is pretty straightforward just like other gaming peripheral devices. It looks much like its previous wired variant HS60. The device does not come in flashy vibrant colors and they also do not have RGB LED lighting. With the high-quality looking grills, they come only in all black and white colors which is pretty decent. The hinges on the headband are made with metal and look sturdy yet comfortable.
Comfort for Gaming Experience: The Corsair HS70 wireless headset provides padding on the ear-cups and headband which makes it comfortable to use for hours. The weight is evenly distributed. The size of the ear cups is big enough that they will cover most of your ear. Over time you may feel a tightening because the hinges or the swiveling joints on the headset do not come with a wide-angle of motion. However, on the positive side, they are still comfortable enough to be used for long gaming hours.
Controls and Access: The gaming controls offered in the headset are pretty straightforward. The headset comes with an OS compatibility of PC/PS4. Checking the OS compatibility will help you to know whether the headset will work with other devices or not. However, the device does not come with an LED light to indicate when the mic is off. Many of them you may not mind the absence of a button for call management of music. There is a volume wheel to vary the volume and a mic-mute button.
Breathability: The Corsair HS70 wireless headset is not a preferred option to be used during the workouts because it tends to warm your ear while listening to long listening sessions. Your ears will be fully covered with a closed-back over-ear design providing no space for the flow of air. Because of the absence of more breathable ear pads, they may not be a good option for long and continuous gaming sessions. However, they are good to go if you take small breaks here and there.
Portability: Because of the bulky designs of gaming headsets in general they are not easy to carry around. The Corsair HS70 Wireless headset is no exception. The headset can’t be folded in a smaller and compact form. One downside is that you can not use them without the USB dongle; it means you need to have a PC or a console to use them. In general, you do not move around with gaming headsets so portability might not be a serious drawback.
Case/pouch: The headset does not come in a case of a pouch. This might be because they can’t be folded into a smaller and compact size to fit in the case.
Build quality: The quality of the build is the same it was in its wired headset. They come in a strong and durable design. The well-padded headband and the metal hinges look hard-wearing. You can also remove the boom mic. They look like open headphones because of their metal grills.
Stability: This headset looks stable and fits perfectly on your ear and head by exerting enough required pressure, meaning they stay intact even when your head is moving. Since they are wireless headphones so you don’t have to worry about getting caught up in the tangle of the wire while moving that can cause your headset to slip and ruin the moment.
The headset provides very good performance with long hours of battery. One of the best things is the sound performance which is superb due to precision-tuned 50mm audio drivers with the sound frequency curve which is fairly well-adjusted.
It works really well with even 4k-144hz gaming monitors and all sorts of gaming laptops. Just connect and here you go with the best sound experience. You will never miss a beat and the slogan just says it all.
There is a power button located on the right side of the earbud that allows you to control the on and off function with ease. Moreover, there are more controlling options on the right side of the ear cup, you can mute the sound and adjust the volume using the wheel on the same side. The LED Light display shows you the status of the battery headset. In addition, there is a small slot for USD for charging.
Although its extra features do not work perfectly but this is a good option for gamers with its perfect sound quality and reasonable price. Due to a decent microphone, the players won’t have any issue understanding you. The battery timing is awesome, however, be careful when using it for long hours due to the heat produced.
If you are a pro gamer you may love having the best mechanical keyboard that’s comfy, quiet, and also very functional at the same time.
