When it comes to gaming accessories, there aren’t many manufacturers you would trust more than
Corsair – fun fact, its full name is Corsair Components. Today, we’re going to look at the hardware
company’s follow-up to Corsair’s Void RGB headset, which is the Corsair Void Pro RGB.
This wireless headset offers 7.1 surround sound of great quality and at a low price. There are some
trade-offs you may have to make though – such as the fact that it’s only compatible with computers
– so read through to get the full verdict!
The build quality boasts of professionalism. Although the outside is plastic, the inside sports metal
pillars that add durability while the use of plastic takes off some weight, making the headset a tad
more comfortable to wear for long sessions. The cups are also soft and comfy, with memory foam
and a textured vibe, an adjustable top part with multiple levels to fit all shapes and sizes and
ergonomic features, such as the volume wheel which lets you flick between different presets on the
equalizer when you click it.
The microphone on the other hand, doesn’t seem to have been designed with the same concept in
mind. Its length, shape and quality put in the ‘Meh’ category for casual gamers, but if you’re a
hardcore live streamer, then you’re better off getting a separate mic to do your job. On the bright
side, the accessory notifies you with a sound whenever the mic is either raised or lowered, hence
helping you maintain the highest recording quality possible.
Last but not least, the RGB lighting is obviously a worthy addition to a product that is touted as the
‘Pro’ version. We can’t fail to mention however that it would have been nicer to see more RGB other
than the company’s logo. Still, that’s a subjective point of view, so take it with the regular grain of
Once we setup the headset by plugging in the transmitter – the USSB memory stick – into the PC’s
USB port and pairing instantly, we went on to test the sound quality and usability of the product and
the programs that run with it.
Several tests later, we came to the conclusion that the sound quality on the Void Pro RGB is a nearly
perfect balance between gamers, streamers and people who just watch content or listen to music.
With that being said, it remains a gaming headset for the most part, meaning that all of the
equalizer’s settings in the Corsair Utility Engine software have been set for immersive gaming
experiences; vivid audio, extensive use of surround sound, etc.
There are also some wired versions of the same accessory, but since we’re talking about the wireless
one, it’s important to note that the battery life is quite plausible, mostly due to a feature that shuts
it down automatically when it’s not being used. In other words, if you remember to plug into the
USB to charge when you’re not using it, then it’s highly unlikely that you will run out of battery.
You can find the Corsair Void Pro RGB wireless gaming headset for $99.99, in black or white. A quick
research is more than enough to show that this is the lowest price you can pay for a gaming headset
of such magnitude.
Should you Buy?
If you’re a gamer or are simply looking for a premium headset on a budget, then by all means order
your now! But if you’re a live streamer or have plans of becoming one any time soon, then think of
your headset and the mic as an investment and invest as much as you can afford.
