Recording and Sound Quality
You can always get the best impression of the recording quality of a gaming headset when listening to an audio recording. That’s why you’ll find them below, as with all our headset tests:
The voice is clearly perceptible and neither too powerful nor too bass-heavy. The speech quality is therefore quite usable and belongs to the better ones. Background noise and other annoying background noises are effectively filtered out. The recording was recorded on the PC.
With its high-quality 50 mm Neodymium drivers, the Corsair HS70 convinces with a good sound image. The sound is clear and balanced. The virtual 7.1 surround sound can also be heard, and the locating of opponents is much easier. If you want to enjoy music, you might have to use the equalizer to help you, because the bass might be a bit more crunchy. The CUE software can be used on the PC for this purpose.
Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) Software
With the Corsair Utility Engine the headset can be configured on the PC. However, you don’t have many adjustment possibilities here, compared to some other headsets. You can create individual profiles, but they are only used for the equalizer and the secondary tone (so that you can hear yourself). There are no other possibilities. It’s a shame that Corsair has limited the functionality here so much. Actually, I needed more options, but I never needed them anyway.
Of course, the Corsair HS70 can also be used easily via plug-and-play without the CUE software.
