When in the market for a gaming headset, there’s a wide range of headsets available to choose from. They come in all shapes, sizes, brands, and each seems to have a slew of features in hopes to set them aside from the rest. Overall, the $100 market seems to hold some of the more popular choices for PC gamers and within that market, we’re going to take a look at Corsair’s Void Pro RGB.
The Corsair Void Pro RGB is the latest headset to take off from the gaming peripheral giant and much like its name hints, there are some extra little RGB elements added within. There are two different models to choose, where a $100 bill will give you the wireless version, though if you’re looking to save a bit of money, the same headset that’s wired will only run you just $79.99.
For starters, this is more of a plastic build headset, but there are some metal pieces attached to give the headset more of sturdy feel, especially with the earpieces. The headband and ear cups are cushioned with some breathable fabric, similar to memory foam and as a result, the ears won’t get too heated from use nor will the headset start to feel very uncomfortable during those long gaming sessions.
To be expected, the headband can extend in order to fit your head size with a variety of adjustment notches. Unfortunately, the microphone is attached permanently, but again, this is made to be a headset and not something for use outside of your PC.
As mentioned, there are some RGB elements to the headset as gamers will spot both Corsair logos illuminated on each ear cup with the color adjustments being available within the provided Corsair CUE software. Furthermore, there is some RGB across the microphone which will shine a bright red color, showcasing when the microphone has been muted.
While on the topic of the microphone, our experience with the headset proved to offer a nice crisp vocal experience. Don’t expect to replace your dedicated microphones if you’re a YouTube personality, streamer, or a podcaster, but if you’re simply enjoying some online gameplay sessions with friends, this headset will suffice.
Audio from the 50mm drivers was also a pleasant experience. You’re going to hear highs, mids, and lows just fine. Again, with the Corsair CUE software, there are some additional options to tweak the audio EQ and with it, you’ll likely be able to find your preference in sound quality. On the side of the headset, you’ll have options to adjust the volume, along with muting the microphone and powering the headset on or off, all of which were easy to distinguish during gameplay. Just as we mentioned about the microphone, we don’t see the Corsair Void Pro RGB replacing your daily headphone driver, but it does a fine job when it comes to gaming.
With the wireless version of the Corsair Void Pro RGB, you’ll receive a USB Bluetooth adapter along with a USB cord to charge the headset, but you won’t have to worry about keeping the cord nearby at all times. Corsair has supplied a nice battery with the headset which will go a bit over ten to fifteen hours of usage before needing a charge.
All-in-all, the Corsair Void Pro RGB is a solid choice when it comes to a gaming headset. If you’re looking to go wireless and in need of something affordable, Corsair’s latest headset release is a great option to go with.
Corsair Void Pro RGB costs $99.99 and is available across electronic retailers. A unit was provided by Corsair for the purpose of this review.
