CORSAIR HS35 Stereo Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2019-07-30

Given the fact that we are dealing with a much lighter construction and thanks to the memory foam fabric padded cups, the HS35 offers more comfort than the HS50 during longer gaming sessions, the only concern being that it is not as durable because of the plastic build. In terms of sound quality, the headset comes with the same custom-tuned 50mm drivers found with the higher-priced modes from the same series which are able to provide punchy bass but also good mids and highs.

Packaging, A Closer Look Part I

Not long ago, we have taken a look at a really affordable headset from SteelSeries, the Arctis 1; now it’s CORSAIR’s time to present its most affordable HS-series product, which is the HS35 and can be picked up in three different flavors: CARBON, BLUE, RED, GREEN. The product is shipped inside a medium-sized cardboard enclosure, with the usual color scheme and right on the top area we can learn its compatibility with a wide range of devices (PC/mobile/Xbox One/PS4/Switch), due to its analog Stereo nature. The bottom right corner also signals the Discord certification:




On one of the box sides, we will get to see the “Never miss a beat” saying:




The compatibility details are further described on the bottom area, together with the box contents; here we can spot some stickers as well, with the internal product name and its serial number:




The main HS35 highlights are described on the back, together with its technical specifications:




After removing the top packaging (cardboard) layer, we will see that the headset is fully protected by a custom molded plastic layer:




Regarding the documentation, we will receive the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) leaflet, a Warranty Guide but also an “Important Safety Information” leaflet:




The newly released HS35 at 250g is much lighter versus the HS50 (at 331 grams), which is also Stereo-only thanks to the usage of more plastic elements on the chassis:




On the outside of each earcup we do not longer have an aluminum grill, but a plastic layer, that holds the CORSAIR logo in the middle:
