Corsair Raptor HS40 Gaming Headset Test/Review

Hey everyone. I apologize. I forgot to write up the supplemental review of this headset. I did this review as requested by our viewer The Gamin Kidz

I will talk about two aspects of these headphones. The audio output (headphones) and the audio input (microphone). 

The Audio output is great on these. Apparently, they are a 7.1 surround sound headset, but they are not compatible with mac computers so I am unable to test out this functionality. But the sound is great for the cost and they are incredibly comfortable. I could wear these for hours and play games without a problem. 

The microphone on the other hand is unusable for podcasting. There is a constant buzz in the background that I was unable to remove through troubleshooting, and the overall sound is rather cheap sounding. If you're gaming online in a group, the microphone may not be a big problem, but if you are trying to do voice overs with this microphone, I do not think that it will cut it. I don't recommend these headphones because you can get a gaming headset with just as good headphones for 1/3 the price. 

If you have any questions about this headset, leave them in the comments down below and I will do my best to answer them.
