HS60 Gaming Headset
The gaming headset is exceptionally competitive, but few have a reputation as strong as that of Corsair. Their headset range covers about every budget, from the affordable to the high-end. Now they’re back with their latest mid-budget headset, the HS60, the 2018 retooling of the very popular HS50.
With support for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation, Switch, and Mobile Devices, it’s perfect for those who use multiple systems, yet only want to spend money on a single headset. Being multi-format, this headset has got a lot of boxes it needs to tick. By using a 3.5mm jack, it’s compatible with just about any audio source on the market. However, thanks to its USB to 3.5mm adaptor, it can also be used on even more devices than most!
Equipped with powerful 50mm drivers, it promises big bass and punchy sound quality. Of course, gamers need a microphone too, and thanks to a detachable microphone, it should be well suited to acting as both headphones and a gaming headset, whenever you need either. The most important feature is that USB dongle though, which will unlock the 7.1 surround feature. However, that is specifically designed for use on PC.
- Ultimate Comfort: Plush memory foam and adjustable ear cups provide exceptional comfort.
- Premium Build Quality: Legendary CORSAIR build quality featuring rugged metal structural components ensure long-term durability
- Precision Gaming Audio: Specially tuned 50mm neodymium speaker drivers bring superior sound quality with wide range and accuracy.
- Crystal Clear Microphone: Optimized unidirectional microphone reduces ambient noise for enhanced voice quality and is easily detached for use on the go.
- Epic Surround Sound: The included USB adapter unlocks virtual 7.1 surround sound on PC delivering immersive multi-channel positional audio that puts you in the middle of the action.
