Corsair is getting set to expand its offerings by announcing the HS1 USB gaming headset today. This marks Corsair's inaugral audio offering and will fall under its Gaming Audio Series. The HS1 features 50mm drivers and an acoustically tuned sound stage which Corsair claims is great for gaming, music, and movies. The headset is a circumaural and closed-back design so it should help to block out any outside noise during an intense gaming session or big LAN parties. The ear pads use memory foam so they should cushion your head without binding or pinching your ears. The microphone is of the uni-directional, noise-canceling variety and it is on an adjustable boom. Since the headset connects via USB, Corsair employs Dolby Headphone technology to provide immersive multi-channel sound up to 7.1. The whole headset is covered by a two year warranty.
The Corsair HS1 headset should be available now though no price was given.
