Maximum PC - - BLUEPRINT -

We’re happy with all th­ese builds at the mo­ment, and think they hang to­gether well enough that we don’t need to high­light in­di­vid­ual com­po­nents in this “Up­grade of the Month” slot. Which is why we’ve elected to fo­cus on a pe­riph­eral in­stead.

Of all the head­sets we’ve seen re­cently, th­ese wire­less cans from Cor­sair re­ally im­press. We have many fears with wire­less head­sets—sound qual­ity and bat­tery life are par­tic­u­larly sen­si­tive ar­eas—but the HS70s al­lay them im­pres­sively. The sound­stage is crisp and bal­anced, with a dis­tinct lack of the over­bear­ing bass that is com­mon in so­called gam­ing head­sets. There’s the added bonus that th­ese look the part, too, with no silly LEDs drain­ing the bat­tery.

On top of all that, they’re not stupidly priced, as wire­less head­sets used to be. What­ever sys­tem you’re build­ing, do your­self a fa­vor, and grab a good set of cans while you’re at it.
