Known as a memory maker, Corsair releases its first headset, the HS1. It is a 7.1 surround USB model good for gaming, listening to stereo music and enjoying DVDs and Blu-Rays with Dolby sound. We’re going to describe the product, analize its installation and see how it behaved during testing.
The HS1 is a big model, a circumaural headset with padded and cloth-wrapped ear cups. They rotate on their axis, making the gadget easy to carry around. The microphone can also be rotated to an upward position, an ideal setup for just listening to music and storing the headset in a drawer or backpack.
There is a 50 mm driver inside each ear cup, 10 mm bigger than the standard driver size found on headsets. It features a volume/mute mic control in the middle of the cloth-wrapped USB cord. It has a simple and objective design: two buttons to change de volume and one to mute the microphone. All three are backlit which is great to make it easier to find amidst a darkened room.
