Corsair has launched a new member in its award-winning HS family of gaming headsets, called the HS55 Stereo. The HS55 Stereo Wired Gaming Headset is one of the lightest gaming headsets we have used recently and is very comfortable to wear for an extended period.
The headset offers very good audio quality and an omnidirectional microphone that offers excellent voice clarity during gaming sessions and online calls.
The microphone also offers a flip-to-mute function and is Discord Certified for crystal-clear communication and brilliant sound. In addition, you also get an on-ear volume roller, that can be used to adjust the volume level.
Corsair is long known for quality products and the new HS55 Stereo is no different either. The HS55 Stereo offers solid build quality and is available in two colours – black and white. The one we received for this review was the white colour variant.
The headset weighs just 273-gms and is made using durable materials, including memory foam ear pads to offer an ultimate comfort level for stress-free gaming.
The headset uses 50mm neodymium audio drivers and comes packed with a 3.5mm connector and a Y-cable adapter.
This means the headset is compatible with a wide range of devices, including PC, Mac, Xbox, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and even smartphones. The headset’s frequency response ranges between 20Hz and 20 kHz, while the microphone’s frequency response ranges between 100Hz and 10kHz.
The overall audio quality of the Corsair HS55 Stereo is very good. Since it offers an excellent sound range, your gaming experience is taken to a whole new level. In addition, the headset also supports Sony Tempest 3D audio on the PS5.
For a price of $59.99, the Corsair HS55 Stereo offers great value for money. It does so by offering an attractive design, is lightweight, and very good sound quality. So, if you are looking for a great-sounding pair of gaming headsets at a reasonable price, the Corsair HS55 Stereo Wired Gaming Headset comes across as highly recommended.
