Corsair Launches The HS1 Gaming Headset

Corsair, more commonly known for their memory products, has apparently decided to branch out into the gaming headset market. Their take on the product seems to come from the “more power” school of thought, with two large 50mm drivers delivering a “carefully tuned acoustical design” to your eardrums.

Corsair says that their 50mm drivers are far superior to the typical 40mm driver, delivering a distortion free gaming experience. The HS1 also sports a unidirectional noise canceling microphone, and Dolby Headphone surround sound built into the closed back ear covering design. There’s also the standard in-line volume and microphone control, and memory foam earcups covered in fabric. Corsair does promise that the Dolby Headphone technology will deliver a true surround sound experience, even when listening to a Blu-ray 7.1 stereo input.

They’ll cost $100 and should be available in September.
