Music makes u lose control

Audio (Music)

The Audio performance of the VOID is pretty great once you configure the unit properly.

  • Select pure direct
  • or add a new profile and manually configure the equalizer
  • Save as default profile

Now I did use an EQ preset here, the default sounds way too flat and unbalanced. But realistically that's the way it should be set up. For listening to music, I'd advise to turn off Dolby Surround.



Once you've balanced out the EQ setting and likely saved it as a default preference then the headset pumps out some strong yet dynamic sounding bass, clear voices and an overall excellent sound reproduction. For our regular test listening suite: we start up Triggerfinger with a cover from Lykke Li's I Follow Rivers. The drummer in this band uses a bass-drum in which a hobbit could reside, comfortably even. No seriously, hobbits could live in there. It is an acoustic live session. The treble range has razer sharp compared to earlier previous models and there is less hiss, no noise. Even considering this is a Youtube recording with fairly poor conversion bit-rate. 


BTW hint also -- listen to Cherry at 4:31 (if you are in a funky rock mood). The stereo image is very clear and comfortable to listen to. It has a wide musical spectrum fully loaded with detailed sound really. With the settings above (perhaps a hint more bass and treble according to your personal flavor) the VOID PRO, much like any VOID provides a very good mix of deep bass, good voices and very nice treble levels.

The second song is lay me Down from Avicii. You can drift away in the funky rhythm, impressive voices, the headset delivers enough but does not manage to impress. The funky guitar starts a little flat at the beginning. We hear pretty clear sounding drums, a snazzy bass-drum and a clear sounding keyboard solo tops it off. 

Once you've balanced out your preferred EQ setting and likely saved it as a default preference then the outs pretty nice sharp yet dynamic bass, clear voices and an overall funky sounding sound reproduction. Very enjoyable.

Ahw yea .. Missy Elliot ft Ciara & Fatman Scoop, Lose Control. What can I say, whenever I hear this song I get that uplifted and energetic feel. Missy sounds just like we need her to sound with a nice phat beat complementing the rhymes. Ehm , the bass feels a tiny bit flat and I gve the 125 Mhz band a bit more boom-boom-pow on the EQ., other then that, nice tunes all around that audio spectrum.

Let's go
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Here we go now
Here we go now
Here we go now
Here we go now
Watch out now
Music make u lose control ...

For the final song we travel back to the future, the year 1998. Timeless -  as always, we pay our respects to Adam MCA Yauch. We actually loaded up a FLAC of the Beastie Boys, as the youtube bitrate is a bit of an insult - Three MC's And One DJ. We again use the aforementioned EQ and Surround settings. Not surprisingly we have tuned the audio levels to our preference, and Three MC's And One DJ sounds great. in the video, you can skip to 1:46 and the song starts (if ya wanna skip da intro).
