Corsair hs35 gaming headset review

In terms of gaming headsets, Astro is a brand known for its high-end quality products. Having said that, they recently decided to delve into the low end of the price range and provide the market with another great option: the Astro A10 gaming headset. The

Astro A10 gaming headset is a serious and serious gaming headset that prioritizes sound and build quality rather than fancy features and aesthetics. It is in the middle of the budget price range, making consumers more headaches the next time they buy headphones.

In the next article, we will take a closer look at the Astro A10 headset to see how it compares with similarly priced alternatives; build quality, price, performance, sound quality, and general use. We will test it to see if it is worth your consideration and your cash.

So, with this in mind, let us stop wasting time and go directly to the Astro A10 headset!

Next, we introduce the main specifications of the Astro A10 headset.

In the Astro A10 box, we see:



The setup process required to start and run Astro A10 is very simple, whether you are using them for PC, XBOX or PS4. After opening the package, simply connect the audio cable (found in a separate package) to the headset. After that, PC users need to connect an additional splitter cable to use the microphone and audio of this headset, which is very easy. For XBOX and PS4 users, this step is not necessary.

No software is required to operate this headset. Just plug in the cable and turn on your favorite steam engine-it's that simple!

Astro A10s has a variety of different styles and color themes, designed for different scenarios and game equipment. However, having said that, regardless of the color theme or device format, each variant of this headset does exactly the same thing.

Therefore, with this in mind, we decided to buy the Zelda-themed Astro A10 headset; you can thank the founder for his love of Zelda on Nintendo Switch and thank you for your purchase. As mentioned above, this is just a difference in style-functionality, sound quality, and build quality remain the same.

Astro decided to take the gaming route for this headset (no surprise), giving it a strong aesthetic that truly stands out. For example, this is not the type of headset you can wear before going to the store. The Zelda theme on both earplugs is more prominent, one with a large Zelda sword logo, and the other with some ancient Hiraru kingdom symbols. Similar symbols can be found throughout the headband, ending with the Zelda badge on the top. Except for the

Zelda brand, Astro A10s uses a plastic design, which on the one hand provides a lightweight design, but on the other hand, does not provide excellent build quality or longevity. Fortunately, like HyperX Cloud Stingers (a similarly priced headset), the Astro A10 headset is equipped with a steel headband wrapped in a soft rubber material for added strength. The

ear muffs mount on the ears, but are not as large as most gaming headsets currently on the market. I have "normal" size ears and the earmuffs just wrap around them. The top and bottom of my ears are always in direct contact with the ear muffs, which can be a bit annoying; We will discuss this further in the comfort section of the review.

This headset uses Astro's iconic square design, and to be honest, it looks quite bulky. In addition, the headband that opens vertically from the earpiece looks very large and angular when in use, which I don't like very much. For the final smaller headset, it just feels a bit bulky and overkill. The

microphone is a non-detachable, rotatable microphone, which is quite large compared to the rest of the headset. That being said, the microphone feels very sturdy and offers quite a bit of versatility in terms of positioning. There are no extra function buttons on the headset, but you can use the built-in volume control on the audio cable, which is useful. In this price range of headphones, the quality of

workmanship is always an aspect of my concern. To be honest, for this department, Astro A10s is a breath of fresh air.

As mentioned above, the design of the Astro A10 headset uses plastic as the main material. Having said that, you will find that a piece of durable steel makes up most of the headband and is covered with a flexible rubber material. The headset as a whole really feels great and very sturdy, especially when doing some mild stress testing in the studio. The

earmuffs themselves feel pretty good in terms of quality. The fabric ear cushions fit well and the earmuff covers provide a thick layer of plastic that can hold up a bit of anger.

Plus, the cable feels very durable and won't cause a lot of wear and tear during gaming or general use. The mic also feels well made and robust. If I had to put money in one area to use this headset for longer than other areas, I would go for the microphone or audio cable.

Having said that, the only drawback I can see with this headset is the built-in volume control on the cable. The dial doesn't feel too strong, which means it might be an area of concern.

Overall, very well built

In the long run, it can be said to be a fairly lightweight headset, to say the least. The weight alone allows players to wear it during long gaming sessions, not to mention the comfort it provides.

However, for me personally, the positive side quickly ended. The helmets were too backward, but I found them to be even more frustrating. The earphones cannot cover my ears sufficiently, and the top and bottom of the ears are in direct contact with the earphone cushion. Usually this is not a big deal, but due to the shape of the earpiece, my ears feel uncomfortable when wearing it. Sorry, Astro.

In addition, the cushions that have been installed on the headband do not provide as much support as you might expect. Due to its compact design, it feels very uncomfortable when used again. Apparently there is a small cushion in contact with the center of my skull, if you know what I mean.

Oh, one more thing about headphones. Because Astro decided to use fabric for something more breathable, my ears quickly started to generate a lot of heat. This is one of my biggest annoyances in the headset, unfortunately, this headset failed in this regard.

So, leaving aside the design, it's time to take a closer look at some of the technical aspects of these gaming headsets. In the next performance part, we will carefully study the performance of this headset in actual scenes. We will test it through music, television and movies, phone calls, and of course, game scenes. In this way, we can give a better and more complete opinion on the performance of this headset.

So, with this in mind, let's get right to that.

I started the sound performance test by releasing some of my favorite tracks to see how the A10s handles listening to music in general. Usually this gives me a good understanding of the range and frequency these headphones can generate. First I decided to listen to some electronic music, as expected, they sound good, but nothing special. The 40mm neodymium drivers found on this

headphone illustrate their own characteristics, providing clear highs and decent booming sound, which most people seem to like nowadays. The bass lines sound soulful and standout, and the melody lines cut through the mix well, providing an exciting sound that all electronic music fans love to hear. That said, from a musical point of view, this is not entirely positive. I noticed early on that the midrange sounds a bit absent and weak in the mix. Unfortunately, the lack of an intermediate frequency will definitely cause the sound from the headphones to fade a bit while listening to music or watching TV. But in this price range, you have no real surprises.

I decided to do a quick comparison with the Corsair HS60 Pro headphones (current retail price is about $ 20 higher than the Astro A10s), as I predicted, the sound quality is more comprehensive. However, in terms of under $ 50 headphones, I think the Astro A10s sounds good, albeit a bit washed out. That said, I think the lack of midsize has an impact on the performance of these headphones, especially in competitive games.

I opened my goto game, CS: GO, while testing the headset. This is a game that relies heavily on knowing the location of the enemy. Therefore, having a good voice plays a fundamental role in your winning or losing. Having said that, I started playing a few deathmatches, and then I decided to let the Astros adopt a more competitive style of play. The first thing I noticed when playing with these headphones is the bass. Although bass sounds good enough when listening to music, it does play a role in games. The AWP sniper shot and the grenade sounded much louder than originally expected. Oh, and because there is no intermediate frequency, I can easily distinguish footsteps and shots from a distance, giving me important information about the enemy's whereabouts.

Although this headset has minor flaws when listening to music or TV shows, I think the Astro A10s provides a very pleasant listening experience. They may not be as comprehensive as other headphones, but they can definitely provide good bass and plenty of room to play.

Speaking of microphones, the Astro A10 uses a 6.0 mm unidirectional microphone, which, honestly, sounds not bad at all. I managed to get quite a bit of game time with these headphones, and my teammates never had problems with clarity or volume. The

microphone is made of rubber material and feels extremely sturdy. This material provides you with considerable positional versatility, but you cannot bend the microphone away from your face. In other words, the microphone has a built-in rotation technology, which means you can flip it when not in use. The

microphone itself can express my voice clearly, albeit a bit dull. As far as $50 earplugs are concerned, this is not bad. Compared with Corsair HS60s and HyperX Cloud Stingers, Astro A10 may be slightly better than Cloud Stinger headsets and slightly worse than HS60s. However, in the real world, it doesn't have much.

I found that when the microphone is close to my mouth, it picks up a lot of background noise, including breathing and typing on my mechanical keyboard. Obviously this voice is very prominent so I'll be careful if you use voice activation in game chat.

Overall, not the best mic we've used

The new mouse or the last keyboard of the game, the characteristics usually play an important role in the decision-making process. The same ideology can also be used for headphones, even at the lower end of the price pool.

ASTRO A10 The handset is always that this is not insufficient. This headset has a series of features, but it has been implemented well.

Keep in mind and skip directly to the best features that ASTRO A10S should provide.

One of the worst features that can be found in many budgetary headphones products available in the current market is poor quality. Fortunately, Astro has ensured that this is an important area in budget headphones and did so to ensure that the same valuable material with a better premium product is carried out.

If you are satisfied with the quality of the sound and the microphone provided by this headset, you are satisfied with the life it provides.

Many of today's headphones designed for PC users have USB audio connections. This makes it eradicate a lot of the possibility of functionality in the transversal form.

Fortunately, the ASTRO A10 headset is not. Astro is equipped with A10S with a standard 3.5 mm audio cable that can be used on any device that provides this port. Therefore, the names, Xbox, PS4, Mac, switches and name, and this headset can be used throughout.

It can be a simple feature, but if you are a player you like PC and Xbox, it is very important to have this function, and all the headphones do not provide it.

Finally, there is a light design of this headset. Because the popularity of the ESPORTS and the game industry is growing, the player is now playing his favorite titles for a longer period of time. So it seems to be absolutely important for the pleasure of your game to have a headset that provides high level comfort.

ASTRA10S, the Earth on the Spectra weight limit reaches a 346 gram of a slim length game session can be mock more.

Well, you have it, our exhaustive review of the ASTRO A10 headphones. In general, we build quality, comfort and general sound quality, taking into account the price points of this headset, and it was quite satisfied with the value that the ASTRO A10 headphones appears. At

$ 60, this headset contains a slap Van-Hyper X ClougSinger in the middle of a very competitive price pool, Corsair HS60 Pro and Steelseries ArcTis 1 headphones. Ultimately, many of these headphones are very similar, better features (HS60 and ARCTIS 1), but others are better quality and sound quality (ASTRO A10S or Hyperx Cloud Stinger). What do you choose really preference and personal needs?

Finally, if you are looking for a budget earphone that falls below $ 60, it offers a good sound quality, an excellent quality of construction and a decent level of comfort, Astra10 is only looking for it, you can do it precise.
