Corsair HS60 Pro Surround Multi-Format Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 2 weeks ago
There are many headsets out there to choose from, and even Corsair themselves have quite a large range. Finding the right headset for the right device can be complicated. However, what if you could have a single headset that does everything you require? That’s where the latest Corsair HS60 Pro comes into play.
Since it uses the standard 3.5mm jack, it can connect to virtually any modern console via the controller headset port. Of course, you can also plug it into mobile devices, tablets, laptops, your PC, your iPod. The list goes on. However, since it comes with a powerful USB dongle to provide virtual surround sound, you can get even more out of it on PC than anywhere else.

Of course, multi-format support is the easy part, but a headset needs to do a lot more. Corsair say they’ve “crafted for comfort” and if it’s like any of the other HS-series, it should be pretty darn comfortable. Powerful 50mm neodymium drivers, a noise-cancelling unidirectional microphone (detachable), on-headset controls. It seems then, the HS60 Pro has a little bit of everything.

What Corsair Had to Say
“The CORSAIR HS60 PRO SURROUND Gaming Headset delivers both comfort and quality with memory foam ear pads, custom-tuned 50mm neodymium audio drivers, and a detachable noise-cancelling unidirectional microphone.” – Corsair
What’s in the Box?
Well first up, you get the headset, of course. However, I love that it is so well packaged. There’s a large brace holding it in place and plenty of padding around it.
Tucked into the box, you’ll find the windbreak for the microphone, the detachable microphone, and the USB 7.1 dongle.
The dongle is pretty neat, just plug and play setup, and technically it can be used with any 3.5mm headphones too. It only works on PC though, but it’s still pretty neat.
