Corsair Gaming VOID PRO RGB
Wireless just went PRO
Corsair has updated their VOID RGB wireless headset line with a new PRO model, it has improved yet also sees a better price. The Dolby certified VOID PRO comes with updated software as well, and manages to impress me in terms of audio quality and build quality as well. Much like its predecessor, the new PRO model is based on Dolby 7.1 certified audio. We received the wireless model for review which works through a USB transmitter on the 2.4 GHz Wireless band. With the help of a small lithium/ion battery inside the headset you can charge the unit over a USB cable, indeed wireless and no wires :) One charge will get you many hours of wireless headset gaming while offering a tender ear experience as the unit is based on two really good quality 50mm drivers.
Being all wireless and with nice big 50mm (not sure but likely Neodymium) drivers this headset connects wireless to your USB port with the help of a receiver and transmitter USB dongle. The new headset has support for Windows 10, 7 heck we think Windows Vista and Windows XP as well. Windows 10 is obviously supported primarily, you will need to download the latest driver for the full Corsair Utility Engine software suite which allows you to tweak audio to your audiophile preference. The new model name is the Gaming VOID PRO RGB Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset which proclaims to be a 7.1 surround wireless gaming headset that brings in realistic multi-channel-like gaming audio. While testing it, we noticed a single battery charge would bring us at least 15 hours of usage. The VOID PRO RGB Wireless works through a USB transmitter.
The headset supports Dolby surround sound, albeit (and pretty much as always with any headset) we found that disabling that feature sounded better overall. The new headset is capable of offering a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response. The product will carry a 2 year warranty ensuring that the Corsair Gaming VOID PRO RGB will get the right amount of product support. The RGB system basically consists of configurable LEDs housed in both ear-pads, armed with the Corsair Utility Engine you can apply a variety of colors and/or animations and even program things yourself. So what's different for the PRO model you might wonder? Well, Corsair claims they it better. And the cl;aims are made based on comfort, sound, mic quality and wireless performance. VOID PRO is the result of a collaboration with BMW’s DesignWorks studio in California. Select VOID PRO models also offer customizable RGB lighting and audio EQ control through CORSAIR’s CUE software suite. The new VOID Pro series starts at an MSRP of $79.99 for wired models and $99.99 for wireless models, and as we have been testing it for a week or two now, I can already tell you that it is worth that money. But more on that in the review of course. Anyway, let's read on-wards and find out how the new wireless Corsair Gaming VOID PRO RGB headset works and sounds. But have a peek at that new look, and then hit the next page please.
