Corsair Void PRO RGB Wireless Gaming Headset

First things first, let’s get the ugly out of the way. The Corsair Void PRO RGB Wireless Gaming Headset is not a headset for audiophiles. The main selling point of these headphones is above average sound quality without the hassle of dealing with any wires and they are best budget gaming headset for ps4, but they’re not going to rock your socks off in terms of fidelity. But if you’re looking for a comfortable, overall good headset that, this one has some pretty nice features. With aggressive, angular circumaural ear cups, an all-black finish and RGB LEDs in each ear cup, the Void is an imposing headset, yet it isn’t absurdly large like many of its rivals.

It’s predominantly made from plastic, with what feels like metal for the joins between headband and ear cups, But it manages to feel more premium than Roccat’s Kave XTD thanks to its surprisingly hefty 388g weight. The ear cups might completely surround your ears, but they don’t heat them up like the more expensive Steelseries Siberia Elite.

The headband padding and ear cups use memory foam to create a very comfortable fit, with none of the pressure on your head. I experienced with the Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 450. I’ve comfortably worn the Void all day, without feeling the need to take it off and give my ears some air. That does mean sound isolation isn’t perfect; I couldn’t use it at more than a quarter volume in the office, or my co-workers could hear my music, and I could still hear the sound of my mechanical keyboard when typing out this review. These are seriously loud headphones.

The boom microphone isn’t detachable, because Corsair Void PRO RGB Wireless Gaming Headset has added what it calls InfoMic. A set of two LEDs on the end of the microphone that indicates sound mode and whether the mic is muted or not. It means there’s no need for an onscreen overlay to interrupt your games, and you don’t have to minimise to change audio settings either. Pressing in the volume dial toggles between five sound modes; Pure Direct, Bass Boost, FPS Competition, Clear Chat and Movie Theatre.

Pressing and holding the button enables or disables Dolby virtual surround. Pressing and holding the mute button on the left ear cup will enable and disable microphone feedback. So you can hear your own voice when talking, and of course pressing it mutes and un-mutes the mic.

Design
These headphones have a unique look that won't be versatile enough to use outdoors. They're comfortable and relatively well built, if a bit plasticky. They have a good and simple gaming oriented control scheme and breathable earcup pads. Unfortunately, they're not portable or stable enough for anything but gaming and casual listening, and you can't detach the mic. They're also limited by the range of the USB transmitter, which makes them even less portable.
StyleComfort
Corsair headphones are an unusual looking pair of gaming headphones. They have a futuristic vibe with square-ish ear cups and a wide flexible headband. They look and feel like gaming headsets, and since the mic is not removable or even retractable, they will not pass for casual headphones. On the upside, the unique design will work for some, and their two-tone or all-black matte color schemes look a bit more professional than some of the other gaming headsets we've reviewed.These are well-padded headphones with a decently comfortable fit. The ear cups are large and spacious, and the headband isn't too tight, so they won't clamp your head like some of the other gaming headphones we've tested. However, they are somewhat heavy, and the shape of the ear cups may not be ideal for all listeners.
PortabilityBuild Quality
The Corsair Void RGB are not portable. Like most gaming headsets, they do not fold into a more compact form factor. The ear cups lay flat but still take up quite a bit of space. They're also limited by the range of their USB transmitter which makes them a bit less portable since you have to carry the USB stick around too. The Corsair Void Pro are well-made headphones with a super flexible headband, but they just don't feel as sturdy as some of the other gaming headsets we've reviewed. The headband and hinges have a metal frame that makes their design somewhat durable. They also make use of a lot of premium materials in their build quality and padding. Unfortunately, the hinges of Void RGB are very loose out of the box. The exposed boom mic is susceptible and will break if tilted too far, and the ear cups have a glossy back plate that will get scratched by regular wear and tear. overall it should be a fairly sturdy headset for most but will not be as durable as the Corsair HS70 Wireless.
StabilityControls
These headphones are not stable enough for anything but casual listening and gaming. They're bulky and have a slightly loose fit, which makes them sway a lot under any strenuous conditions. They're not designed to stay on your head if you use them while running, jogging or working out, but they should be fine for gaming on your couch or listening to music while walking around in your home. They're also wireless, so you will have no cable management issues.We previously had 'Channel Mixing' set to N/A instead of No, which was making the score of the Void RGB higher than what it was supposed to be. The review has been updated.
These headphones have a decent gaming-centric control scheme. They have a mic on/off button and a toggle dial to control the volume. The dial is especially responsive and easy-to-use, but the
Sound
This headphone is a good-sounding pair of closed-back, over-ear, gaming headsets. They have a good and consistent bass, a fairly well-balanced mid-range and great treble reproduction. However, their bass lacks sub-bass thump and rumble, their mid-range is a bit forward, and their treble could be slightly sharp on overly bright tracks. On the upside, they have a relatively open soundstage, but about average imaging and distortion.
BassMid
Good bass range performance. LFE is extended down to 33Hz, which is good. Low-bass, which is responsible for thump and rumble, however, is lacking by about 3dB. Bass has a wide 5dB bump centered around 80Hz and continuing up to 150Hz, adding a bit of excess kick which some may like. Good mid range performance. Low-mid and mid are quite flat and consistent. The 5dB bump around 1KHz, adds to the intensity and projection of vocals/leads.
Isolation
The Corsair Void RGB have poor isolation. They have a decently breathable design with porous ear pads that don't block a lot of noise or prevent what you listening to from leaking. While this gives them a better soundstage it makes them less suitable to use in loud environments, like being at a competition. If you mostly game alone in a relatively quiet room then they should be fine but the leakage level may be distracting to those around you.
Noise IsolationOverall Leakage
Poor isolation. These headsets do not isolate below 1KHz, and above that achieve only 16dB of isolation, which is sub-par.Good microphone performance. Speech recorded with this headphone will sound slightly thin, and a bit lacking in brilliance and airiness. However, they excel in noisy environments and are able to separate speech from noise to a great degree. This makes them suitable for the most demanding situations such a subway station or a competition.

Battery
The battery life of the Corsair Void is good but could be better. They last about 12 Hours on a single charge which is suitable for most gaming sessions. You can also charge them while playing if you're close to a power source, which is ideal if you're having a gaming marathon. However, they take about 3 hours to charge, which is a little on the longer side and there's no passive playback with a USB cable.

Wireless RangeBase/Dock
The Corsair Void RGB have a good wireless range even when obstructed. They reached up to 45ft indoors when the USB transmitter was connected to a PC in another room and up to 110ft when in direct-line-of-sight. They also connect automatically with the transmitter, so there is no paring procedure, which makes them easy and straightforward to use.There is no charging dock or base for these headphones.
