Corsair HS35 Stereo Review (Page 1 of 4)

Last month, I had the pleasure of participating in a small-scale Amazing Race around a mall, organized by some of the high school youth counselors. While it has been a while since I was in high school, I was actually helping out by being the "adult supervision" in the group while running around with them. The event was organized quite well, with a mixture of critical thinking, athleticism, and problem solving. Unfortunately, we made several missteps along the way during our journey. As you know from the television show, we ran around completing the task at a certain stop before getting our next clue to the next route marker. While we were quick to solve puzzles or certain tasks at each station, we often had difficulty finding the next station. For example, one of our clues led us to go to a bridge near the mall, but we failed to realize there were two bridges, one on each side of the mall. We ran all the way to the north bridge, only to realize we had gone in the opposite direction and had to go back. This happened several times and we often lost the leads we had gained on other teams. I think a lot of it happened because we were rash in our decision making, often moving faster before thinking about the consequences until it was too late. When Corsair announced their HS35 Stereo, a budget-oriented gaming headset, I did have to question if there were any consequences to making a headset sell for such an affordable mark. Retailing at a cool $40 USD, this undercuts some of the cheaper headphones we have previously looked at, including Corsair's own lineup. Is this the next budget pair of headphones to recommend or are there shortcomings to be found? I guess it is time to find out, so let us proceed.
