Corsair HS70 SE Headset Review

In times like today, buying a decent pair of gaming that ticks all the boxes can be challenging. You will find one pair with good sound, another with impressive build quality, and another with good connectivity. But seeing all of the features in one place is the real challenge and can seem quite impossible, especially when looking for a new pair.

Everyone wants to get their hands on the underdog, and the HS70 may be the one for you. We have a detailed review discussing the crucial features of the wireless headset. Now find out all the details regarding it to make the purchase easier!

Corsair HS70 Wireless Design

In terms of the overall design, the Corsair HS70 is quite good. It has a sleek modern look to it and is quite aesthetically pleasing. The design is primarily black, so it’s nothing flashy and loud. It’s pretty opposite of the usual gamer headsets and ideal for people who do not like a gamer look with all the bells and flashiness.

The Corsair HS70 is made of premium quality metal and gunmetal trimmings designed to last long. The headset feels sturdy and durable, especially the padded parts, including the earcups and the headband, which are made of suitable plush foam. The headband is covered in a soft-leather material which adds luxe finesse. The HS70 is also quite comfortable enough and will not cause ear fatigue even if you wear it for extended hours of gaming, working, or enjoying movies and music.

The grill, on the other hand, is not very attractive; however, the device’s handling is not affected. It also comes with a removable mic, which, when attached, comes directly next to your face and isn’t the easiest to deal with. 

Corsair HS70 Performance

Corsair HS70 Performance

The performance of the Corsair HS70 is quite impressive! Starting with its decent battery life, which lasts up to 16 hours on a single charge. So you do not have to worry about the battery going down every other hour while gaming. It also comes with a detachable mic with the ducking-type compression feature that ensures all the noise in the background is down while your voice appears crisp and loud.

But obviously, the main feature is the performance, which gets even better thanks to the reasonably balanced frequency curve and the 50mm audio drivers. The bass gets louder and gives the right rumble during games and movies. If you are keen on experiencing action movies the right way, then we recommend you try it out on the HS70 because you will not be disappointed. If you feel the highs are a bit too much for you, then you can make changes through CUE.

The Corsair HS70 has an accurate separation between the left and right earcups and an impressive stereo. The surround sound of 7.1 makes it even better; users may feel like all the live-action of games and movies is happening right in front of them. With a broader soundstage, you can easily experience the three-dimensional feel.

If you are worried about sound delays, don’t be because the 2.4GHz wireless low-latency range goes up to 40 ft, making everything very accurate and precise.

HS70 Controls

HS70 Controls

The Corsair HS70 has a decent control scheme; most users do not have a problem with no button for calling or changing music. It also does not have any LED to indicate when the Mic is on mute, and the switch does not provide any meaningful feedback to users. Like other gaming headsets, they do not have channel mixing. But the brighter side is the easy-to-use controlling system and decent user feedback.

HS70 Connectivity 

The Corsair HS70 connects seamlessly through the USB Bluetooth adapter to your PC and PS5/PS4. The connections are instant, and when you are connected, a voice notifies, telling you that the headphones are on and working. They support a solid 40ft connection range and make the experience smooth with the 2.4GHz range. Sometimes the audio of the PS4 can drop on and off from the console and Bluetooth adapter. The closer you are positioned, the better connection it will hold.

Corsair Utility Engine Software and Transmitter

Corsair Utility Engine Software and Transmitter

The HS70 has a good quality USB transmitter that isn’t fancy, but the connection limits the usage. It may be a little inconvenient if you use it to charge it on your PCs or laptop. CUE, also known as the Corsair Utility Engine, is free-of-cost software that allows users to make any adjustments to the EQ. This bridges the difference any user feels and makes the HS70 even better!

You can create numerous EQ profiles and customize EQ presets to improve the experience. You can automate the settings, shut them down, check your battery status, and sidetone. The software also allows changes to the voice and lets you turn it on and off. You can switch from surround sound to stereo and activate the virtual sound feature, which makes the gaming experience even better.

The software is only available for PC users, not iOS, Xbox One, and PS4. So that’s a downside of the Corsair HS70.
