Overall, the Corsair HS35 Stereo Headset performs as to be expected given the price point. For a budget headset it does well, but it certainly has its flaws. The biggest flaw is the sharp peak around 4,000 Hz, but this can be sorted by adjusting your equalizer. It’s a contender within its price range, but you don’t need to spend much more for better sound quality. If you have a larger budget there are better options available.
One thing that makes the headset stand out above the crowd is standard console and phone compatibility. This is something often neglected on cheaper headsets, so it’s certainly a welcome addition. Xbox One compatibility does require the separate purchase of a Microsoft 3.5mm adapter which is not included. However, with the adapter being a Microsoft product that is no fault of Corsair’s.
