Corsair’s higher end headsets, such as the VOID range, are fairly well known amongst gamers, but they also have more budget-friendly options available. Today we’re having a look at the Corsair HS35 Stereo Headset, with this particular sample being blue and black. Other than blue, the Corsair HS35 is also available in green, red and carbon (dark grey). The headset is designed to work with PCs, PS4, Xbox One and mobile phones with a 3.5mm audio jack.

Budget headsets are often a horrible experience with an uncomfortable fit, creaking plastic, terrible sound quality, and a flimsy design. Corsair hopes to change that stigma with the HS35, which aims to address these points. Can something hitting the sub-$40 mark realistically accomplish all of the above? First let’s have a look at the specifications.
