The Corsair Gaming Headset Review
Corsair positions the Void Pro RGB as a premium headset (with a matching price tag), and its design certainly helps to make a premium impression, with a design that, thanks to its RGB lighting, should always appeal to gamers, beautifully preserved.
The headset’s feel isn’t quite as high quality, however, with a plastic design that lacks the rugged feel of expensive headsets like the V-MODA Crossfade Wireless. However, this means that the Corsair Void Pro RGB weighs less than some of its competitors, making it more comfortable to wear for long gaming sessions.
Although the exterior is made of plastic, it has metal pillars that make the Corsair Void Pro RGB feel like a durable headset that won’t break easily, and padding on the ear cups and passband make a headset that is very comfortable to wear.
The Corsair Void Pro RGB is available in wired and wireless versions, and you can choose from a range of colors. The cups sit comfortably on the ears and each has a backlit Corsair logo, which can be configured via software so that it lights up in different colors and fits your gaming setup (like almost all gaming laptops, PCs, components or Devices nowadays have RGB lighting).
Setting up the Corsair Void Pro RGB is pretty easy as it doesn’t require an external amplifier. All you have to do is plug the transmitter (which looks like a USB stick) into a USB port and turn on the headphones, which will then be instantly paired.
Windows 10 recognized the Corsair Void Pro RGB when we plugged in the WiFi adapter and we also installed the Corsair Utility Engine software.
With this software, you can adjust the settings of the Corsair Void Pro as well as the lighting settings. There aren’t many customization options, but you can choose the color, as well as the effect (e.g., quick blinking, slow breathing, etc.) from a wide range. If you have other Corsair products such as the ST100 RBG bracket or the K95 RGB keyboard, you can also configure them via this app.
Sound quality is the most important factor in headphones, and in that regard, the Corsair Void Pro RGB doesn’t disappoint, especially given the price and the fact that it’s a wireless headset primarily intended for gamers. Gaming headsets often focus on delivering deep, skull-quickening tones to add punch to explosions and other action scenes, but the Corsair Void Pro RGB is pretty balanced, with mounts unrelated to gaming, like music that is playing good.
As the EQ settings in the Corsair Utility Engine software show, this is primarily a gaming headset, so the EQ presets are all intended for gaming, except for movies. If your main goal is to use headphones for listening to music, this is probably not the best choice.
From a gaming point of view, the Corsair Void Pro RGB performed brilliantly with a punchy, clear sound and good use of virtual surround sound. The New Colossus was made much more haunted by the sounds of bullets passing by as we played. The volume can be adjusted using a dial on the left headset box, and the microphone did a good job of both gaming and video calls while minimizing background noise.
The battery life is good. There’s an auto-off feature that turns the Corsair Void Pro RGB off when, not in use. The Corsair ST100 headset holder can be used with the Corsair Void Pro RGB, the corresponding RGB lighting between the two devices.
The Corsair Void Pro RGB stand is a nice addition, although it doesn’t do much other than holding your headset. It has a 7.1 virtual surround processor to add this effect to other headphones (which can be connected through an audio jack). However, if you have the Corsair Void Pro RGB, you don’t need this feature.
Pros and Cons of the Corsair Gaming Headset
- Performance – Good audio playback and solid microphone performance
- Affordable – Great value for the price
- Comfortable – not too heavy, enough adjustment options and sufficient cushioning
- Loose Fit – Poor clamping force means they can lose some of their natural tightness and fall off the head
Overall, the Corsair Void Pro RGB delivered very good sound quality for games and movies, and virtual surround sound was also implemented well. The quality of the recording through the microphone was also good, which makes it a great headset for communicating with teammates and even for a live spot.
The sound quality and the various EQ profiles are decidedly gaming-oriented, which is not a problem if you only want to use this headset for gaming. However, if you want headphones primarily for listening to music and enjoy a few moments of gaming at the same time, then you should search for other headphones options.
If you are a dedicated gamer and already have a number of Corsair products installed on your desktop, you will be very happy with the Corsair Void Pro RGB, especially given its relatively low price compared to other gaming headsets.
