As always busy announcing PC components, its core business, the American brand Corsair, after what was shown at CES 2022 with a compact gaming pc, is back to dealing with complete products, announcing new gaming headsets, among which the model stands out. Corsair HS65 Surround.

Over the past 4 years, Corsair has announced two wired headset models for gaming, represented by the HS60 and HS60 Pro iterations, with the release of a revised model with vibration engagement two years ago. Time has therefore proved propitious for the new Corsair HS65 Surround model (in black and white, at 89.99 euros), with several interesting innovations, starting with the design which, borrowed from the HS80 Wireless model, turns out to be more rounded and in step with the times, so as to allow a weight reduction of 40 grams, bringing it now to 260 grams.

The decrease in weight, together with the ear cups covered in imitation leather but padded with memory foam, allows prolonged use (but always firm, thanks to the single but reinforced and adjustable aluminum band), not detached from a feeling of full comfort, confirmed also from the practicality of the omnidirectional microphone, with a flat and curved stem which, although not detachable, picks up the voice well and can be easily silenced by lifting it, as per the Flip-to-Mute function.

Inside, the Corsair HS65 Surround headphones house drivers made of neodymium whose size of 50 mm ensures a wide coverage of the audible frequencies: a further contribution to the quality of listening can be obtained thanks to the collaboration with Sonarworks, a specialist in audio calibrations. , which led to the implementation of a function, known as SoundID which, a bit like Sennheiser’s Sound Check or Jabra’s MySound, performs small audiometric tests which then lead to the creation of highly customized audio profiles during equalization.

Thanks to the cable with mini-jack, the Corsair H65 Surround headphones are compatible with various sources (eg Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X and S, PS4 / PS5) but, using the included USB adapter, you can benefit – on PC and Mac – Dolby Audio and Dolby Surround 7.1 support (to capture any sound while gaming).

Together with the aforementioned headphones, the Fremont brand also announced the HS80 RGB USB (129.99 euros), HS55 Stereo (69.99 euros) and HS55 Surround (79.99 euros). What they have in common are the padded pavilions that house 50 mm drivers, the omnidirectional microphone, and the absence of SoundID calibration while, in terms of functions, Dolby Surround 7.1 is also a common denominator. The first model does not have the connection via 3.5 mm jack, present in the other two (with the HS55 Surround which also has the USB via adapter, in order to copy the high resolution 24 bit / 96 kHz to the HS80 RGB USB model. ), but indulges in some whimsy with RGB LEDs and a certain practicality with the flexible headband.
