Earbuds these days are getting smaller and smaller. When the ear bud gets smaller, do we run out of features or qualities like their larger counterparts? Do the smaller headphones sound as good, can they withhold the strenuous day to day use, can we recommend them to a friend?

Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless Gaming Headset

There is no shortage of wireless headsets on the market and even Corsair has several models available. What there is, is a shortage of wireless bandwidth to provide the bandwidth (read: quality) that wired headsets enjoy. While several wireless models can also work wired as well, they don’t ramp up the quality to match the wired bandwidth. The next caveat is that if you generally don’t have the bandwidth for quality audio, there is little sense in putting quality audio components in the headset. Corsair’s Virtuoso Wireless headset has some secrets under the hood. While in wireless mode, you get a respectable 16bit/48kHz and up to 20 hours of freedom from cords over Corsair’s Hyper-fast Slipstream Wireless. If you aren’t planning on running around the house, you can connect the included USB cable and unlock the real enthusiast-grade magic inside. With the increased bandwidth that USB provides, the Virtuoso will ramp up to near to true enthusiast-grade 24bit/96kHz audio. Throw in a removable broadcast-grade omnidirectional microphone and you have the makings of the best wireless gaming headset on the market. Let’s see how it does!

Corsair HS60 Pro Surround

Remember back to building your first PC. After doing all the research needed, you head to your local electronics store or you end up doing your shopping online. All your parts show up, you build your system and you want to play your favorite game with your friends, only to find out that you didn’t buy a pair of headphones to hear your gameplay or talk to your friends. This can be a scary situation. You’ve already spent all your money on the high-end graphics card of the year but you have to be able to hear what do you do? You run to the store again and see the nice yellow and black box of the new Corsair HS60 Pro Surround headset.
