Corsair introduced the HS1A, an analog version of the company's HS1 headset.
It will start shipping this month for $79.99.
The Gaming Audio Series HS1A extends Corsair’s gaming headset offerings, bringing the same comfort and design as its award-winning predecessor, the HS1 USB headset, to an analog version for gamers who prefer to use their own sound cards. The HS1A uses the same generously sized earcups, 50mm drivers, memory foam earpads, and high-quality microphone as the HS1, and connects to the audio source and mic input using two 3.5mm stereo plugs. It also includes an inline volume control and microphone mute button.
“We were delighted to see the positive response to our first audio product, the Gaming Audio Series HS1 USB headset,” said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager for Components at Corsair. “Based on customer feedback from thousands of survey responses, we chose to ship the full-featured HS1 USB version first, and now we are pleased to offer an analog version with the same build quality and comfort to gamers who already own high-end sound cards.”
