Corsair Void Pro RGB Review: Experience Immersive Wireless Gaming

The Corsair Void Pro is exuding a futuristic vibe with its angular ear cups and broad elastic headband. It comes in two colors, black with white and carbon. The build is plastic; however, it is reinforced by metal pillars, so it will stand the test of time.
But then again wireless is plagued by a stigma of not measuring up to the sound quality of wired ones. After all, you might be thinking whether the freedom from wires will result to poor sound quality. To know once and for all I placed it under the scope to find out.

Freedom from Wires

Tangled wires are a nightmare, so many are jumping ship at the prospect of a wireless headset. However, not just any headset, it must be stylish and perform well too.

The Corsair Void Pro RGB is a unique-looking wireless gaming headset that promises gamers immersion and convenience.

Build and Design 

The Corsair Void Pro is exuding a futuristic vibe with its angular ear cups and broad elastic headband. It comes in two colors, black with white and carbon. The build is plastic; however, it is reinforced by metal pillars, so it will stand the test of time.

Headband 

The headband is not that firm, and headphones clamp your head comfortably. The headband is padded well, which makes it soft and comfy. Although to me, it felt a bit heavy, that could be just me since it’s only 13.8 ounces. I guess it is due to the headband slanting forward a bit, which disbalances the weight distribution.

Earcups and Controls 

The Corsair Void RGB earcups are nicely padded with a comfortable fit. They are large and a bit roomy, each with a backlit Corsair logo. However, I noticed some sound leaking, and outside noises weren’t completely blocked during testing.

The mic is on the left side and is turned on and off by lowering and raising it. The power button and the micro USB port are located on the top of the left earcup.

Sound and Performance 

Naturally, sound quality is one of the most important factors when choosing a gaming headset.

The 50MM drivers and the Dolby Surround 7.1. of the Void Pro make it an outstanding choice. Commonly, gaming headsets are made to produce skull-crushing low tones. The reason for this is to make blasts and other sound effects pop out and deliver a tangible impact. The immersion and performance of the Void Pro gaming sound profiles reminded me of the Turtle Beach Stealth 600.

During testing, the amazing boss fight soundtrack of Dark Souls III was fully immersive; I could discern each instrument easily, and the bass was amazing. The headset did a good job in FPS gaming too –  gunfights had more impact, and explosions were realistic.

If you want to use the headset for something else aside from gaming, you can do so by adjusting the EQ settings in the Corsair Utility Engine. Just bear in mind that this is originally a gaming headset, so the EQ presets are all intended for gaming, except for an option for movies. So, if you want a headset with the intention to listen to music, this one would not be your best pick.

Software and Connectivity 

The Void Pro has a solid wireless range of up to 40 feet. It also has a low latency meaning that you will have an almost uninterruptable usage. During testing, I hardly noticed any lag with the audio.

Regarding software, the Corsair Utility Engine allows you to make customizations. You can tinker with the EQ and control the volume of the mic. Fancy a light show? The color and display speed of the built-in headphone lights can also be personalized here. Sadly, the software will not be enjoyed by macOS users as it is not compatible.

Battery 

Void Pro’s battery lasts about 16 hours on a single charge, making it a strong contender for long gaming sessions. If you happen to run out of juice during some intense CS: GO match, you can charge the headset while playing.

Final Verdict 

The Corsair Void RGB has a unique look that is not suitable for outdoor use because of its size. It is also restricted by the range of the USB transmitter, which makes it even less portable.

On the bright side, it is comfortable and comparatively robust, though a bit plasticky. The good yet simple gaming-oriented control is a huge plus for gamers. Extended gaming sessions are comfortable, thanks to the breathable earcup pads.

Overall the Void Pro is great for gaming but other than that, it has limited uses.
