Corsair HS50 PRO Stereo Gaming Headset (Adjustable Memory Foam Ear Cups, Lightweight, Noise-Cancelling Detachable Microphone with PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch and Mobile Compatibility) - Black
About this deal
This headset does have a shorter cable at around 6'. The cable isn't detachable but the microphone is. However, it doesn't give you the option for a mic sidetone. Value This headset is one of the cheaper options, making it a good budget buy, but we found similarly inexpensive models that we would recommend over this one. Conclusion Onboard controls mute the mic and adjust volume. We like that the mute feature is a button, rather than a slide switch, making it much easier to use.
Likewise, the HS50 can adeptly handle music, movies, and other media, whether you're streaming media on your console or computer or using the headset with your smartphone. Corsair's budget-priced headset doesn't have the frills of pricier headsets, such as 7.1 surround sound, but it still impresses at this price range. In following thread the phenomen is described as "sidetone audio through the earcups" [ https://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1774989]. The steps described did not fix my problem. If you're willing to spend more on a headset, then you'll find plenty of perks, including Bluetooth wireless support, dazzling designs and surround sound capabilities – and those may be worth spending for. But if you don't want to splurge on a headset and just need something that's capable, versatile, and seemingly built to last, then the Corsair HS50 absolutely lives up to the task.It shines in nearly every respect, starting with the durable, premium-feeling build, which has a nicely understated appeal and comes off as a pricier device. And once you pop it on your dome and plug in, the HS50 keeps outshining its price tag thanks to full, immersive sound and strong microphone performance.
Our last metric rated and compared how convenient the HS50 Pro is to use by looking at if the mic is detachable, if it has a sidetone, the length of the cable, and the onboard controls. We found this headset to be above average in this regard, earning it a so-so score. Moving over to Star Wars Battlefront II, the pew-pew of my TIE Fighter's laser blasts resonated vividly around my ears amidst the thundering propulsion. The sound field doesn't feel immense, but it does come off as a bit broader than Astro's option. And the roaring engines of Forza Motorsport 7 on Xbox One impressed almost as much as the game's dazzling graphics. Almost.
