The Corsair HS70 Wireless Gaming Headset has performed to the expectations I had for it. In fact, it is my current favourite gaming headset (that I currently have) and I have been quite enjoying the freedom of not being attached to a cable. I have found that with wired headsets, the cable always got caught on something on the desk or the chair and when I moved it would tug and rip the headset off. Without the wires, I am free to move around and even get up and walk around, which is great.
Setup was quick and painless (with Windows and PS4) but a bit trickier with Ubuntu. I would assume not many people would be using a Linux machine, though, so that probably won’t sway someone into not picking up this headset.
The sound quality has been good as well. I have been enjoying all the genres of music I listen to through the HS70; the only one I haven’t tried was Country music though I am sure that would sound fine. Gaming with the Corsair HS70 has been great. I can hear the environmental effects and characters in game clearly. The Virtual Surround Sound with the PC is pretty neat to try and I wish more headsets offered that feature.
The microphone is good and if you are looking into getting something that provides good mic audio without getting a stand-alone microphone for streaming or gameplay videos, then the Corsair HS70 mic will do the job. Couple in software like VoiceMeeter Banana and you can tweak the sound of your voice to what you like, but that is totally optional. I love how you can detach the microphone and how it has a button to mute the mic too.
If you are looking for a good wireless gaming headset that can last hours on a charge, be comfortable after long extended periods of use and not your bank account, I would recommend picking up this headset. The Corsair HS70 is
