An exciting foray into haptic feedback headsets from Corsair that provides a fun and very enjoyable game-first audio experience.
Haptic feedback isn’t a new idea in games – see: N64 Rumble Paks – but strapping those Rumble Paks to your ears certainly is. This trend began with Sony and Razer headsets taking exploratory forays into designs in which a combination of software and hardware translated audio cues into force feedback for… well, for your head.
While it sounds like a recipe for a few hours laying very still in a dark room with some pain killers, the reality is, and I’m as surprised writing this as you are reading it, quite pleasant. Corsair calls the proprietary tech powering these H60 Haptics ‘taction technology’. It’s anyone’s guess what that means, but I’m pleased to report that as a concept, it’s only about 30% as silly as it sounds and does make a case for this Corsair set being a special contender for best PC headset for gaming going right now.
