good stuff

  • Xbox Wireless
  • Battery life
  • Voice

    bad stuff

  • Just great on one platform
  • Cut out the microphone

    The Corsair HS75 XB Wireless is a great gaming headset on Xbox, and is also suitable for PC, but is not feasible anything else.

    Fast Talk (Corsair XB)

    This is the new Corsair HS75 XB Wireless gaming headset for the Xbox and Xbox series x. 

    The headset is officially licensed for Xbox and gives you an instant connection with super simple pairing. 

    this can be used in PC but you’ll need the wireless Xbox adapter for Windows as this is primarily meant for use with Xbox.

    so the Corsair HS75 as in the name is a wireless headset, Corsair claim a 20 hour battery life with 40 feet of range. 

    it uses dolby atoms with 50 millimeter neodymium drivers with a frequency response from 20hz to 20 kilohertz to give you the next level of immersion and precise 3d sound. 

    the detachable noise cancelling microphone with a frequency response 10 kilohertz onboard control for volume game and chat mix and easy mute which is all built into a lightweight construction with soft memory foam and leatherette coverings.

    Corsair XB: Matte Design, and Very Comfortable For Long Hours Of Games

    The Corsair HS75 XB has the same similar design Corsair HS60 just with a few colour changes. 

    Instead of the camo on each ear cup, we have a nice matte black design, which personally for me is what I do prefer. 

    then we have a grey triangle pattern on the ear cups with a textured Corsair logo. 

    Moving up we have the aluminium yolks which is part of what makes this headset,

    so light and also that we have an incremental adjustment for each earcup.

    you do have a great range of adjustability on there, so if you have a large noggin like myself, you’ll have no problem wearing this headset. 

    that top headband is very simple as well with just a nice printed Corsair logo,

    one of the things i actually liked about the HS60 was the fact there wasn’t a massive logo plastered on it, so again this is really nice simplistic headband. 

    The reverse of that is nice and pad, so you can wear this for extend periods of use without any discomfort, and moving down we have the earcups which again are really nice and soft. 

    so if we move down to the base of the headset, we have all our controls and options.

    Corsair XB: Very Useful Connection and Controls With Great Battery Life

    Now to charge the headset we’ve been using a USB connection which is really great to see, we definitely don’t want to see any micro USB connections in 2020. 

    there’s a power led on that as well when you turn the device on, and when it’s plugged into USB C for charging, it’ll glow amber.

    up from that we have a mute for the microphone and that will give you an audible sound in the headset when you do enable that and then further up we have the volume control. 

    this does have a click when you rotate it, and it’s an infinite scroll wheel but it does have very precise adjustment,

    so you can easily adjust the level of volume that you want, it’s really nice that you can do ever slight adjustments. 

    as often other headsets have quite a large jump in between clicks. 

    and then on the right side we have our power button and our chat and audio mix,

    this does have a little bump when you hit the center of it, so you can tell when it’s 50-50 which is quite handy. 

    The detachable microphone does have a cover similar to the HS60 that was a little bit fiddly to get on and off, and be careful when you take it off as it’s quite easy to lose. 

    microphone plugs are really easy and it’s very flexible, so you can position it exactly how you want it.

    Corsair states that the HS75 XB Wireless will last you about 20 hours on a single charge, which is really cool.

    The Corsair HS75 XB Wireless works at constant output ~ 75dB, for a few minutes and for 21 hours.

    Performance: Dedicated primarily for games on Xbox Series X / S

    Playing games with the Corsair HS75 XB Wireless is simple and straightforward,

    which is a good experience in general, as it is a comfortable enough headphone for multi-hour sessions, plus it has great battery life.

    The Corsair HS75 XB Wireless is primarily intend for gaming on the Xbox Series X / S, but you won’t be able to use it for anything else.

    We tested Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s game and found that the headphones brilliantly handled a mixture of orchestral music and in-game audio,

    but this game did not support surround sound at all, but in general there were no problems with directional sound.

    Corsair XB for XBOX

    The Corsair HS75 XB Wireless delivers good sound output in line with most gaming headsets,

    and there was a noticeable increase in the bass range up to around 200Hz,

    and sporadic drops in focus in the high range avoided natural resonance in the ear.

    The Corsair HS75 XB Wireless shined in the music, the sound was great and the bass really stood out.

    And when we played Call of Duty the increased bass was making a louder battlefield noise,

    but you wouldn’t feel the same cranial vibration feel that you would from other headphones.

    The Corsair HS75 XB Wireless provides great insulation, but of course it’s not on par with the isolation of gaming headsets like the HyperX Cloud Alpha or the Razer BlackShark V2.

    And the microphone in the Corsair HS75 XB Wireless headphones is of average performance, as it helps to de-focus on the bass, meaning that people with deep voices will not have to worry much about speaking quietly.

    Conclusion

    The Corsair HS75 XB Wireless is a perfect fit for you, if you primarily play games on Xbox, as these headphones are a solid entry into the HS line of headphones.

    It has a very ergonomic design, is also easy to use and works better on PC than competing products like the Raze Kaira Pro.

    Basically, the Corsair HS75XB Wireless is great for Xbox, but it’s not useful anywhere else,

    so if you don’t mind spending nearly $ 150 USD on headphones dedicate to Xbox, this is a perfect fit for you.

    But if you are not terribly attach to Xbox Wireless, there are a lot of great alternatives, for example you can choose from the Razer BlackShark V2 and the more affordable Fnatic React.
