The Corsair HS70 Wireless 7.1 Virtual Surround headset is a good product. The build quality as well as the materials used are impeccable and exactly on the level we expected from Corsair. The comfort is very important with gaming headsets and this one is able to excel in that matter. The soft, memory foam cushions fit perfectly and you will never experience pressure points.
When it comes to sound quality we believe that is well balanced. Thanks to the fact that the factory preset is linear you can tune the sound quite a bit using the equalizer, which is integrated in Corsair's software. To use the 7.1 preset sounds like it increases the general volume and apart from that it boosts bass and heights, but that's it. Talking about the microphone, we would like to see a better quality. The audio isn't crystal clear as we expected.
Apart from that there you get long battery life of 16h and the wireless range is great as well, since you can move 10m away from your PC easily. The recharge time is rather fast. Corsair does not include a software CD in the bundle but the software is free and available to everyone to download. Overall you get access to all the features you'd want via Corsair's software and they're intuitive to find.
The price of the HS70 Wireless 7.1 Virtual Surround is in line with other similar products. Furthermore this headset is compatible with PlayStation 4 as well. The MSRP price of the HS70 Wireless 7.1 Virtual Surround headset is set to 109 Euro. The Corsair HS70 Wireless 7.1 Virtual Surround earns 4 out of 5 stars
