Corsair HS65 Wireless Headset
Headsets are one of the types of peripherals that Corsair offers (there are also PC components, but that’s not a story for this review). It ranges from budget-oriented HS series (the reviewed one is one of them), then there’s the mid-range Void series, and it ends with high-end Virtuoso. The HS series starts with HS35, and till now, it also contained HS45, HS50, HS55, HS60, HS65, HS70, HS75, and HS80 (some of them had different/wireless variants). We’re checking out the all-new Corsair HS65 Wireless in this review (today is the debut). The HS65 Wired edition has been on the market already for almost a year. The HS65 series goes back to basics: stable construction, comfortable fit, and decent sound. Thanks to the new Sonarworks SoundID technology, the sound should also be adaptable to personal preferences. The HS65 Wireless is built to last with lightweight (275g) and durable materials, plus (leatherette) memory foam ear pads designed for maximum comfort and hours of stress-free gaming. The wireless functionality is nothing extraordinary, but it’s an excellent addition, as you can effortlessly switch between low-latency 2.4GHz wireless or Bluetooth® 5.2. A robust signal covers you from the desktop to the couch with up to 50 ft (15 meters) of wireless range. The battery life should be up to 24 hours, which sounds reasonable.
The omnidirectional microphone on the HS65 WIRELESS should provide a wide dynamic range and superb vocal clarity with a flip-to-mute function. That means your voice should sound more precise/accurate/natural when communicating with your friends and teammates. The easy-access on-ear audio control enables on-the-fly adjustments without distracting you from your game, including control over sidetone and EQ preset audio settings. Inside the HS65 Wireless, 50 mm custom-tuned neodymium audio drivers should deliver excellent sound with the range needed to hear everything on the battlefield, including Tempest 3D Audio support on PS5. The mic is omnidirectional and has convenient flip-to-mute functionality. The frequency range of the headset is between 20 Hz and 20,000 Hz.
The Corsair HS65 Wireless is compatible with the iCUE software, which means that there is possible to control sidetone and RGB lighting synchronization with other compatible CORSAIR devices.
There is also a white version available. This headset is priced at 119.99 USD/139.99 EUR. The product carries a 2-year warranty. Well, let’s hit the next page.
