The appearance of CORSAIR HS35 continues the simple and lightweight design style of the CORSAIR HS series. The main parts are made of lightweight materials in many aspects. The weight is about 243g with the microphone.

Head Beam

CORSAIR HS35 Head Beam

The head beam is made of ABS material, although it is slightly cheaper, after being thermoplastic, it has good elasticity and toughness. And the surface has been frosted, it feels good to the touch, and it also has a good oil and dirt resistance effect.

The inner part of the head beam adopts woven mesh material. Its interior is filled with a very flexible memory foam, which is soft and elastic, which can well reduce the pressure on the head.

The head beam has 9 scales to adjust the length, the adjustment range is about 2.5cm.

In addition, the inner side of the head beam is marked with L/R for users to distinguish.

Earpads

CORSAIR HS35 earpads also adapt the same woven mesh material as the head beam. The soft breathable earpads and the internal memory foam padding can provide a better fit and comfort when wearing.

Its large ear cups can also completely wrap the user’s ears, bringing good noise isolation, so that users can better immerse themselves in games and music.

The removable earpads are also very convenient for maintenance and replacement.

Buttons & Interfaces
