High-quality visuals and high-quality sound maķes a deadly combination and possess the capability of taking your gaming experience to the next level. Let’s do a corsair hs60 pro review.
Any high-quality gaming headset will surely do a better job than your average sound system. While it is true that loudspeakers may give you the adrenaline rush whenever there is a firing of guns and explosives, sometimes it is just impossible to use them. There can be many reasons for that. There is a possibility that your family and neighbors do not appreciate the excessive noise.
Now that we have discussed all the pros that headsets have to offer, let us review one of the premium headsets.
The all-new CORSAIR HS60 pro is completely identical in looks to its previous version CORSAIR HS60. That being said, it does have some noticeable features such as there is slightly thicker padding on the ear cups along with white stitching on the headband, while the previous model had black stitching. The gaming headset is also available in a yellow variant, which has yellow stitching and a yellow ring attached to ear cups.
Comfort & Fitting: The Corsair HS60 PRO is as comfortable as the Corsair HS60. The padding on the ear cups is way thicker, which is slightly more comfortable but causes the headphones to feel slightly tighter on the head. Overall, they are not too bad and the headphones are still comfortable. The Corsair HS60 PRO is stable enough on the head for gaming on the couch or at a desk, but they tend to slide around from fast head movements. They’re tight up to the point that they should stay on during light jogs, that being said, they aren’t the best choice for taking with you to the gym or on a more intense run. Their wired connection also sometimes causes it to get snagged on something and get pulled off your head.

Solid Build: The headset has a solid build, primarily designed for gaming purposes. The headset sits on hinges which allow for a significant amount of tilt. This provides enough room for tilt, which eventually makes sure that the headset will fit comfortably on most head shapes. The headset ensures a painless gaming experience. Simply plug it in and it will work. Not only this, the headsets on-ear controls are quite simple and straightforward. There is a volume dial on the left year and a mic mute button situated right beneath it. It also has a 3.5mm detachable mic which also works pretty well. It also has a flexible wire, which is why adjusting it to one’s desired position is pretty easy. Not only this, the microphone works very well with the Discord server as well.

Sound Quality: Coming to sound quality, just like any premium headset, Corsair HS60 Pro provides a very comfortable and straightforward sound experience. You can easily use it on a PC, Playstation4, and Nintendo switch. The headset handles the sound equally well even though right what game you’re playing. You can play overwatch, league of legends, pokemon, or whatever game you may want to play, the headsets equally handle them well. The sound feature works phenomenally well and it acts very usefully during matches.
Treble Accuracy: Also, the treble accuracy of this headset is very good. The low treble and mid-treble are somewhat closer to the target curve. This eventually results in vocals and higher-pitched instruments being present without being too dull. That being said, some of the mid-range trebles are quite over-emphasized. This may cause some frequencies to be slightly harsh, or you may call piercing. Not only this, very high-pitched sounds are under-emphasized, even though this is at high enough frequency that it should not be that much noticeable.
Average Standard Deviation: Talk about average standard deviation, just like most of the bulky over-ear gaming headphones, the Corsair H60 PRO is not very consistent among various users. This is contingent on the quality of fit and seals you can achieve. Not only this, but you will also eventually have to adjust them slightly to get some treble reproduction, every single time you wear the headphones.
Audio Output: The audio output of Corsair HS60 PRO is quite good. There is a pretty notable de-emphasis in the mids. The sound quality of the Corsair HS60 PRO is bass-heavy and somewhat phenomenal. It’s far more better and efficient than something like most bulky over-ear gaming headphones, which aren’t the most consistent among various users. This is why results are above average, and you may experience sound reproduction differently, especially in the bass range. In addition to this, they provide much more bass than the previous model, which helps in bringing out explosions and gunshots in video games, though it isn’t too overpowering and shouldn’t drown out dialogue and vocals. This is likely due to the thicker padding that creates a tighter fit and seal. Overall, they’re highly compatible with bass-heavy music like EDM or hip-hop, even though they’re suitable enough for most genres.
Mid Accuracy: Talking about the mid-accuracy, the mid accuracy of these headphones is standard and pretty decent. Low-mid is overemphasized, which at times prevents some vocals and instruments from getting drowned out by the very over-emphasized bass, though it’s not enough to prevent your audio from sounding cluttered and muddy. The rest of the mid-range is fairly well-balanced and accurate, though high-mid is slightly low, which at times causes some sounds to be weak and distant.

Not only this, the Corsair H60 pro offers mid-accuracy very good isolation, which is phenomenally good for a gaming headset. Aside from this, thick earpads and easy adjustments of the headphones also make it a perfect fit for your gaming needs. The Corsair Pro H60 offers a very typical audio output for an attached microphone. The de-emphasis in the bass range is quite significant. This is often due to the microphone not getting sufficient power and reasonably sufficient output in mids and highs. What this means is that people with deeper voices may experience a little distortion in their voices. On the contrary, people with higher voices should not be having any issues though.
Imaging: Talk about imaging, The imaging of these headphones is also very good. Weighted group delay also falls within good limits, this results in a tight bass and transparent audio reproduction. The L/R drivers of our test unit are also quite well-matched, which eventually ensures an accurate placement and localization of objects like voices, instruments, and video game effects. That being said, these results may vary from unit to unit, and they may not be the same for every pair.
Utility Of Gaming Headsets: A good pair of gaming headsets can provide you with the greatest convenience while at the same time offering amazing audio compatible with your gaming needs. You may wonder by now as to how these gaming headsets ensure better sound quality than these sound systems.
In all fairness, there are many reasons for it. For instance, gaming headsets filter sound directly into your years. This eventually allows you to hear much more clearly and in detail while simultaneously focusing more on gaming sounds.
Speakers may indeed provide you with excellent output audio for gaming needs, but it is also true that the speakers will not let you enjoy a fully immersive gaming experience. This is because the sound is not delivered to your years like it is with headsets. Another reason that headsets take the lead over your everyday sound system is that headrests are less disruptive to those in your surroundings. People around you will simply not appreciate all those rough gaming noises coming out of your room. Aside from this, headsets also offer you various other features. It allows you to communicate with your other teammates while playing games which the average sound system surely doesn’t offer.
The Corsair H60 pro may not be the top-of-the-line headset but is a solid choice. The build quality is extremely fine, the sound quality is premium, and to top it off, it works well on everything. Also, the noise handling of the microphone is legendary even though environments may be noisy. Not only this, the gaming headsets are compatible with PC and other gaming consoles either via TRRS connection or by USB adapter, which provides you all the more reasons to buy this gaming headset
