The circumaural, closed-back design offers the long-term playing comfort and immersive multi-channel audio that you demand as a gamer, with a unidirectional noise-cancelling microphone that lets you be heard loud and clear, and audio controls that are easy to use without taking your head out of the game.
And because you can't design a great gaming headset without first building a superior pair of headphones, the HS1 uses massive 50mm drivers and carefully tuned acoustical design for pristine reproduction and no-compromises enjoyment of your favorite music and multi-channel movies.
The rugged, compact design with replaceable earpads complete the HS1's mission of not only being an audio weapon of choice for intense gaming sessions, but a well-loved piece of enthusiast gear that will meet all your audio needs.
Great for Internet gaming, voice chat, online conferencing, or voice command
- Massive 50mm drivers for high-quality audio reproduction
- Frequency response tuned to deliver serious gaming punch without sacrificing audio quality for music and movies
- Circumaural, closed-back earcups for superior noise isolation
- Replaceable memory foam earpads with fabric covers for a firm fit without binding or pinching
Massive, 50mm drivers greatly reduce the overloading that can occur with 40mm headsets. They deliver more accurate sound reproduction, particularly for low-frequency effects. And, they're less likely to cause the distortion that can make it hard to discern voices and other important audio cues when everything is coming at you fast.
In short, you'll hear more audio, more cleanly, giving you a competitive advantage.
Intense, Immersive Gaming
The circumaural, closed-back design blocks distracting sounds and keeps your head in the game. Dolby® Headphone surround sound lets you enjoy multi-channel games the way they were intended to be played, with positional cues that put you into the environment in a way that stereo headsets simply can't.
The clear, low-noise reproduction of the unidirectional noise-cancelling microphone lets your teammates hear you better, and the extra-large inline volume and microphone control is easy to grab and use when the action heats up — you don't need to take your eyes off the screen.
Built for Comfort
Not only do the soft, plush fabric earcup covers have better acoustic properties than leatherette — they're also better at absorbing moisture, too. Underneath, memory foam earpads provide a comfortable, realiable fit that confirms to the shape of your head without binding or pinching.
Not just for games — great for music and movies, too
We began with an obsessive approach to earcup design — tuning and re-tuning the orientation of the 50mm drivers and the baffle geometry to deliver a frequency response curve that reproduces every bit of sonic detail. The result is a headset that truly respects the music.
We added surround sound with Dolby® Headphone technology, so you can enjoy the multi-channel audio that brings so much to the cinematic experience &mdash even 7.1 channels from Blu-Ray discs.

Dolby Headphone is designed to enhance the listening experience for any stereo, 5.1, or 7.1 audio source. Dolby Headphone works with any audio source, and no special encoding is required.
Dolby Headphone accomplishes the following:
Dolby Headphone uses advanced pschoacoustics to reproduce surround sound when listening to a multi-channel audio source (for example, 3D games and Blu-Ray/DVD discs). The multi-channel audio is reproduced by the headphones as the audio designer intended.
Dolby Headphone also offers optional Dolby ProLogic IIx processing to expand stereo and 5.1 audio sources into a virtual 7.1 surround sound experience. This "upmixing" uses algorithms to give audio a more spacious, enveloping sound. It's the same Dolby ProLogic technology that's commonly found in home audio.
Dolby Headphone doesn't simply reproduce multi-channel audio. It does so by simulating the effect of listening to speakers in a room, so the audio doesn't seem like it's coming from "in your head." Research has shown that this helps eliminate "head fatigue." The effect is more subtle than digital audio expanders that mimic the effect of listening to a live band in a concert hall, club, and so on. Rather than simulate the effect of the sound sources being far away, it instead simulates the effect of listening to music on speakers that are several feet away, rather than millimeters from your ears. In other words, the experience is more like listening to audio sitting on your sofa in your living room. You can use the HS1 control panel software to enable, disable, and customize each feature.
