Corsair may be well known for its memory, but the company also dabbles in a variety of peripherals and other products. Today, Corsair made its entry into the PC gaming hardware market by announcing its first audio product, the Gaming Audio Series HS1 USB gaming headset. The new headset uses 50mm drivers which Corsair claims will deliver more accurate sound reproduction and lower distortion than you'd get with smaller, more typical drivers.

The Audio HS1 also has a circumaural, closed-back design to help reduce ambient noise. For long-term playing comfort, the Audio HS1 comes with replaceable memory foam ear pads that will conform to the shape of your head. The headset also has a uni-directional noise-cancelling microphone on an adjustable boom for clear, low-noise voice chat.

“We set out to develop a headset with the performance that gamers demand, while also providing the pristine audio reproduction required for multi-channel movies and high bit rate music,” stated Jim Carlton, Vice President of Marketing at Corsair. “The Audio HS1 easily meets both these challenges.”

The Corsair Gaming Audio Series HS1 USB Gaming headset is currently shipping. It comes with a two year warranty.

I will never bet against Corsair be it Water Cooling, Memory, Power Supplies, Cases they always seem to "bring it".

Reviews should be good but what will they cost?
