The Corsair HS70 Pro Wireless has many great features, from its amazingly stylish, yet simple look, to its impressive audio quality and even battery life/charge time. While the button layout lacks the innovation that I was after, it hits the nail on the head for gamers.
The HS70 Pro Wireless does have some issues with its microphone, and overall the microphone can get annoying at times. The quality isn't that great either, with users' voices sounding somewhat robotic and metallic. I would have also liked to see a 7.1 surround sound button added to the headset so users can flick between 7.1 and stereo on-the-fly, instead of going into the iCUE software.
So, let's wrap this up. Should you buy Corsair's HS70 Pro Wireless? Well, it depends on how much money you are willing to spend and what you want out of your new gaming headset.
If you are looking to spend no more than $100, I can't recommend the HS70 Pro Wireless enough. It has impressive audio quality for its price point, it's comfy, it has great battery life/charge time, it's versatile in terms of music/movie listening capabilities, it has great software, and its simple look is amazing. What it doesn't have is a fantastic microphone, so if you are looking for a headset that has both great audio and a fantastic microphone, you might need to look somewhere else or increase the amount you are willing to spend.
Wireless headsets have gotten a bad wrap for quite some time now, but now that technology is advancing exponentially, we have headsets such as the HS70 Pro Wireless that prove they can be a viable option for gamers. Corsair should be proud of the work they have done on the HS70 Pro Wireless, and for a price of just $100, gamers should be pleased with the headset.
Lovely work, Corsair - keep it up!
The Bottom Line
Corsair's HS70 Pro Wireless stands as a strong example of how fantastic wireless headsets can be. For just $100, it's one of the best wireless headset solutions on the market, and something every gamer should consider when looking for a new headset.
