Corsair Void Pro RGB Wireless Review

Corsair Void Pro RGB Wireless Review

Wireless headphones come in a variety of price ranges, and their quality of sound and build is evident of that. Usually, the average price of a wireless headset is around $150. However, the Corsair Void Pro wireless headset are not only cheap but also has excellent quality. This flagship wireless headset is an improvement from its predecessors and has some minor changes that make it just that extra bit special. Additionally, the price is the same, which is a massive bonus.

The key feature of this headset that sets it apart from others is that it is a solid device featuring a wireless surround system and other features rarely found in a headset of this price range. Therefore, it is really worth the money and is probably the most comfortable pair of gaming headphones you will ever wear.

Design

The Corsair Void Pro headphones are unusual looking for gaming headphones. They ditched the traditional round cups in favor of square-like ear cups that look futuristic. This premium headset also has RGB lighting that alleviates the design and completes the overall look. However, the body is made using plastic. Thus, it lacks the weight that most premium headsets carry. Therefore, they are not as robust as most expensive headsets. 

Moreover, this lightweight design may put it at an advantage over other pairs of headphones as heavier headphones are not as comfortable in the long run. With the Corsair Void Pro RGB wireless headphones, you can wear them for hours on end and not feel the weight on your neck or head. Therefore, longer gaming sessions will be more enjoyable with the Corsair Void Pros. 

With a plastic exterior, these headphones redeem themselves by having metal pillars on the inside that reinforce the shape of the headphones and make them more durable. Thus, they won’t break easily. Additionally, there is padding on the band that goes over your head so that the metal does not dig into your head.

These headphones are also well-padded on the ear cups, which makes them extremely comfortable to wear. The ear cups themselves are large and spacious. Therefore they don’t feel tight and cramped. Furthermore, the sizing also prevents the clamping effect, which makes headphones uncomfortable after a short while. You can easily wear these headphones for long gaming sessions and not feel their weight of them.

There is also a mic that is placed on a mic arm and is on the left-hand side of the headset. The mic arm is programmed to mute the microphone when it is placed in the up position, which is a useful feature to have. Furthermore, the headset alerts you whether the microphone is muted or not by a sound. Therefore, you know for sure that the mic is muted when you raise the mic arm.

Sound Quality

Sound Quality

Sound quality is by far the most important feature that gaming headsets or headphones, in general, should get right. The Corsair Void Pro wireless headset is a gaming headphone primarily, and the sound quality reflects that feature. It focuses more on low tones, like any other headphones, and therefore, certain sounds are a lot more impactful. These features make the gaming experience a lot more immersive and enjoyable. 

The Corsair Void Pro headset is quite well-balanced as it also allows music to come through well too. Thus, non-gamers can also equally enjoy these headphones. However, these headphones make the sounds louder. Thus, there is a chance that subtler sounds such as that of strings in the instrumental of the song may get drowned out. Therefore, the subtle melodies will be lost, which may decrease the quality of the song. 

In terms of gaming, this headset delivered audio that was impactful, vivid, and punchy. This kind of audio paired with a virtual surround sound makes gaming a lot more immersive. The frequency response of these headphones is also on par with headphones around this price range which leaves little to complain about. Additionally, sounds are not usually layered in games. Therefore, the issue with the subtler sound being drowned out will not be as big of a problem if you use the Corsair void RGB elite wireless for gaming purposes. 

The App

The Corsair headphones are tied to an app called the iCUE app. This app is Corsair’s proprietary software that allows you to control many features of your headphones. However, it is not a very well-designed app. 

This app allows you to customize and coordinate the LEDs on the Corsair void pro RGB wireless headphones. Additionally, they also allow you to activate the surround sound feature on your headphones. Therefore, you cannot ignore the app entirely. The app is also useful in telling you the charge level of the headphone, as the headphone itself does not indicate when it is fully charged. When you charge your Corsair void pro wireless headphones, an amber light will turn on at the bottom of the left headphones. This light indicates that the headphone is being charged. However, when this light turns green, you may assume that it is fully charged. However, that is not the case. A green light on these headphones means that the headphones are 90 to 100% charged. If you want to know the exact percentage, you will have to open the app to find out.

Thus, despite the app being slow and having an odd layout, it is necessary to have it installed on your phone or whichever device you are using your headphones on.

Battery

Battery

Corsair claims that the battery on the Corsair void pro RGB wireless headphones will allow you 16 hours of playback time on a single charge. This battery life is on par with other premium headsets that cost a lot more. However, this battery life of 16 hours could probably be extended if you turn off the RGB lighting, which of course, takes up the battery. Additionally, the volume at which you are using your headphones also affects the battery life. Lower volume listening extends the battery life. On the other hand, if you are used to having your volume up high, these headphones may die a little quicker. 

These headphones also feature an auto-shutdown feature that automatically turns off the RGB if you have it turned on. This feature thus helps conserve battery and make the headphones last much longer.

Wireless Connection

The overall wireless range for the Corsair void pro RGB wireless is quite large. It covers a large area, and if you are in a large room, you can move around and still have no problems with the connection. However, the range is not quite as large and will drop if you move to another room. 

There are variants of these headphones as well, and if you want, you can get one that comes with wires and attaches via USB or analog. With such variants, the battery is not an issue, and you can game without the fear of your headphones running out of charge. 

Gaming Purposes and Microphone

Gaming Purposes and Microphone

In terms of gaming, the Corsair Void headset is an excellent pair of headphones as it deals well with the kinds of sound used in games. These sounds are usually not layered, and the sound of explosions and other loud noises are usually less likely to drown out the sound of audio chat and dialogue due to their unlayered nature. As the Corsair Void Pro cannot deal with layered sounds very well, this is excellent news for gamers. Furthermore, the sound profile of these headphones also makes it so that softer sounds such as footsteps are easier to hear. Such a feature is invaluable in survival games where a few extra seconds can make a huge difference. 

In terms of gaming headphones, isolation can be a useful feature to have. The isolation on the Corsair Void Pro is quite average for a gaming headset. It may block soft sounds, but it cannot block out louder noises, and you will be able to hear them clearly.

A microphone is yet another feature that is important for gamers. The microphone on the Corsair RGB is a boom mic that does a great job of ensuring that the other players can hear your speech clearly during games and in video chats. Furthermore, it ensures that the background noises are at a minimum so that your voice is the only one that is heard clearly. The recording quality of the microphone is also great, which makes these headphones a great option for gaming. 

Pros and Cons

No device is perfect. Therefore, there are a few features of the Corsair Void Pro that are excellent and some that are not quite as refined and are almost a hindrance in using the headphones to their full potential. However, you must consider whether or not these headphones are the right fit for you.

Let’s take a closer look at the pros and cons of buying these headphones.

Pros

The Corsair Void Pro RGB wireless headphones are an excellent pair of headphones that work well with the sound layout of games and ensure that you do not miss out on a single sound. The overall audio performance of these headphones is great as it is well balanced, vivid, and punchy. Therefore, the experience of gaming becomes a lot more immersive. The virtual surround sound also helps alleviate the experience and makes you feel like you are there in the game with the characters.

Another pro of using this headset is the fact that it is super comfortable. The Corsair Void Pro RGB is well-padded headphones that ensure that they aren’t too tight on your head and clamp when you wear them. There is also padding on the headband, which prevents it from digging into your head. The foam used is memory foam which adds to the comfort level of these headphones.

Furthermore, these headphones are also comparatively lighter and do not weigh down your head when you are using them. Thus, you can use them for long periods of time and not feel them becoming too heavy. The ear cups are also decently sized and spacious so that your ears fit comfortably inside them.

The Corsair Void Pro headphones also have a microphone that has a nifty feature that makes it so much easier and intuitive to use. This feature includes being able to mute the mic when you pivot it to face upwards. This feature is incredibly helpful when you are multitasking and have to mute yourself every few minutes.

Cons

Although there are many pros to getting these headphones, there are a few cons as well that may deter you or second guess these headphones. One is that the mic that is programmed to mute itself when turned upwards did not always unmute when you lowered it back down. Therefore, sometimes you will have to do it manually. However, one can hope that the mic issues would be fixed with further upgrades in the void RGB elite wireless.

Another con of this headphone is that the bass is lacking, and thus, the sounds may sound a bit flat when compared to other headphones. The lack of noise cancellation is another pitfall for this headphone, as the gaming experience is greatly enhanced when your headphones have noise cancellation capabilities. However, this is not something that cannot be worked upon in future models such as the Corsair-void RGB elite. 

The app iCUE is also an inconvenience to use as it has an odd layout and is not efficient. However, you have no choice but to use the app as many important features are integrated into it.
