Corsair HS1 and Sharkoon Xtatic SP Headset Review
Welcome back to another headset review at Guru3d.com. It is pretty rare that we delve into the depths of the headset market, but today we do. It is even more unusual that we have two headsets on the test bench today, Sharkoons Xtatic SP and the Corsair HS1. A headset has many roles to play, headphone for music and games, microphone for voice chat, but will they work well for all of them? While there are no shortage of headsets vying for your attention, which of these two stand out of the margin and worthy of a gurus attention? Of course, were here to help you figure that out.
In the US we have no trouble recognizing Corsair, at first a small memory company started back in 1984 that's grown into a big company with a lot of diverse, and some of the best, products in the enthusiast market. Sharkoon, on the other hand, is much larger company.
Both the Xtatic and the HS1 are pretty evenly matched. Both are USB powered, noise-cancelling, sealed-back, circumaural headsets. Both can fold up reasonably, but since they are both quite large already, it wont hide much. The Sharkoon Xtatic SP can play with your PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Both come in any color you choose as long as its black.
There are some interesting differences, of course, and thats what were here to find out! Lets get down!
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
