Up Close

Contrary to a lot of Corsair products there is much less yellow in the packaging than normal, with it being reserved just for the top and bottom panels. Otherwise it’s an all-black, minimalist affair.

Within the box we find all the usual suspects. A Type-A to Type-C charging cable that can double up as a wired connection should you wish to use the HS80 in that manner. There is the Slipstream Wireless dongle, Dolby Atmos blurb and the clear-as-always Corsair quick start guide.

The HS80 itself is more of a regular design than other Corsair headsets such as the Void. It’s all about delivering high quality audio to your eyes, not about making a fashion statement or over-designing for the sake of giving the artist something to do.

The one thing we want from any headset is high build quality and on the HS80 RGB Wireless we have no issues at all. Where plastic has been used it’s thick, there are metal hinges and the ear pieces themselves are very plush and comfortable. It’s a high quality item in every regard.

The left ear cup holds all your controls. The power button is self-explanatory. The infinite turn volume wheel has a click functionality for quickly swapping through equaliser settings, and moves the volume slider slowly enough that you’ll always be able to find the sweet spot. Lastly at the bottom of the picture you can see the Type-C charging port, although the surrounding area is sufficiently over-designed that you’re almost forced into using the supplied Corsair cable. No charging it overnight using your phone cable here.
