Corsair Announces Skull-Pounding HS60 Haptic Headset

HS60 Haptic

Corsair has announced their latest headset offering, the HS60 Haptic, and as its name suggest the headset provides haptic feedback for players.

The new HS60 Haptic includes targeted bass processing, from Taction Technology, providing a rumble like sensation that you’d get from your controllers – only now with rumbling pointed directly at you ear drums and head.

“We feel deep bass as vibration more than we hear it,” says Taction Technology, who describe the new tech as an entirely new tactile transducer as producing something like “200 pounds of subwoofer in a 1-ounce module.” Players can adjust the headset with the company’s signature iCUE software, which includes an equalizer and more.

The goal of these new transducers is to give players those low rumbles from either in-game explosions, gunfire, and of course, in-game music with some wicked and pumping basslines. The HS60 is also offered as a premium headset, with adjustable ear cups fitted with plush memory foam, braided fabrics, and reinforced aluminum. It also only comes in camo color.

“Hearing the deep, low rumble of explosions or the reverberating hum of nearby machinery is a richer, more engaging experience with the HS60 HAPTIC,” Corsair said in a press release.

They added, “Combined with a pair of custom-tuned 50mm neodymium audio drivers delivering superb sound quality and a fully detachable, noise-cancelling uni-directional microphone for outstanding vocal clarity, the HS60 HAPTIC puts you in the middle of the action like never before.”

Here’s a sizzle reel for the new headset:

If you’re looking to pick one up, the H60 Haptic is now available over on the Corsair store, for $130.
