Corsair Void Pro RGB Review

This remote headset from Corsair has a smooth and in vogue outline with programmable LEDs — henceforth, the RGB in the item name. Nonetheless, this headset is missing a lot of substance under everything that style, conveying an unremarkable appearing in our sound quality tests and a substandard one in our mic quality assessments. Over that, it isn't especially agreeable to wear for significant lots of time and is a bit on the expensive side, thinking about its dull execution. It may be worth getting in the event that you completely must have all Corsair mark assistants to have the lighting match over your apparatus and have cash to save, yet else, we would very prescribe thinking about elective items.


The Corsair Void Pro RGB is the follow-up to Corsair's Void RGB headset, which ups the sound and recording quality while bringing 7.1 encompass sound and adaptable RGB lighting, which is extremely popular right now.

It's a remote headset that gives you the opportunity of development you'd expect that originates from discarding the lines – however does this flexibility come to the detriment of sound quality? We gave it a spin to discover.

The Corsair Void Pro RGB costs £109.99/$99.99/AU$159), which is obviously expensive for a headset, in spite of the fact that contrasted with any semblance of the Asus ROG Centurion 7.1 (£219.99/$270/AU$360) and the Razer ManO'War ($169, about £155, AU$330), which sit on our best PC gaming headset show, it doesn't appear to be very as eye-watering.

Outline

Corsair positions the Void Pro RGB as a superior headset (with a sticker price to match), and its plan positively makes a top notch impression, with an outline that, will pleasantly downplayed, should even now please gamers on account of its RGB lighting.

The vibe of the headset isn't exactly as premium, however, with a plastic outline that does not have the vigorous feel of costly headsets like the V-MODA Crossfade Wireless. In any case, it means the Corsair Void Pro RGB weighs not as much as a portion of its rivals, making it more agreeable to wear for long gaming sessions.

While the outside is plastic, it highlights metal columns that make the Corsair Void Pro RGB feel like a strong headset that won't break effortlessly, and cushioning on the ear-glasses, and on the band that goes over the highest point of your head, help make this an extremely agreeable headset to wear.

The Corsair Void Pro RGB comes in both wired and remote variants, and you can look over a scope of hues. The glasses sit serenely over your ears, and every ha an illuminated Corsair logo which can be arranged by means of programming to shine in an assortment of hues and to coordinate your gaming setup (as basically every gaming PC, PC, segment or fringe nowadays has RGB lighting).

While it's the Corsair logo that gets the shining treatment on these jars, it's a sufficiently decent logo, and Corsair is a regarded mark in PC gaming, so that shouldn't put an excessive number of individuals off.

On the left-hand can sits a mic arm that can be brought and raised down to kill the mic on and. It's a decent touch, as putting the arm into the up position quiets the mouthpiece. The headset additionally cautions you through a sound when the mic is raised and brought down, so you're informed regarding when the mic is on or off. The mic can likewise be balanced somewhat by twisting the arm, so you can tweak its situation for ideal account quality.

Likewise on the left side is a catch for quieting the mic, a power catch for exchanging the headset on, and a small scale USB port for charging the headset. Generally speaking, the Corsair Void Pro RGB is a pleasantly composed headset that figures out how to offset an a la mode outline with gaming style like RGB lighting.

Setup

Setting up the Corsair Void Pro RGB is quite clear, as it doesn't require an outside amp. We tried the remote variant, and we should have simply the transmitter (which resembles a USB memory stick) into a USB port and turn on the headset, which at that point matched in a split second.

Windows 10 perceived the Corsair Void Pro RGB when we connected to the remote connector, and we additionally introduced the Corsair Utility Engine programming.

This product gives you a chance to alter the settings of the Corsair Void Pro, and in addition tweak its lighting settings. There aren't a tremendous measure of customization choices, however you can pick the shading from a wide range, and additionally the impact, (for example, fast squints, moderate breathing, and that's only the tip of the iceberg). On the off chance that you have other Corsair items, for example, the ST100 RBG stand or K95 RGB console, you can likewise arrange them by means of this application.

Sound quality

Commercial

Sound quality is the most imperative factor with regards to headsets, and in this regard the Corsair Void Pro RGB doesn't baffle, particularly considering its cost and the way that it's a remote headset pointed basically at gamers. Gaming headsets will regularly focus on conveying skull-rattling low tones to make blasts and other activity scenes feel more 'impactful', yet the Corsair Void Pro RGB is truly very much adjusted, with non-gaming media, for example, music, coming through well.

Obviously, as the EQ settings in the Corsair Utility Engine programming appear, this is fundamentally a gaming headset, so the EQ presets are altogether gone for gaming, aside from one that is for motion pictures. On the off chance that you need a headset fundamentally to tune in to music, at that point this most likely isn't the best decision.

Gaming-wise, the Corsair Void Pro RGB performed splendidly, with punchy and striking sound and a decent utilization of virtual encompass sound; a frenzied weapon fight in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was made unmistakably immersive by the hints of slugs flying past as we played. Volume can be controlled by means of a dial on the left earphone can, and the mic completed a great job of conveying discourse both amid ongoing interaction and on video calls, while additionally downplaying foundation commotion.

In any case, we found that occasionally when we brought down the mic arm the amplifier wouldn't turn on, which prompted a touch of fiddling around in Windows' sound settings and killing the headset on and once more.

Battery life was great. There's an auto-shutdown highlight that turns the Corsair Void Pro RGB off when not being used, and we once in a while got ourselves unfit to utilize the headset because of a dead battery – you simply need to make sure to connect it to the USB. The Corsair ST100 headset stand can be utilized related to the Corsair Void Pro RGB, with the RGB lighting coordinating up between the two gadgets.

In the event that you need to bet everything on the Corsair biological system the stand is a pleasant backup to the Corsair Void Pro RGB, despite the fact that it doesn't do particularly separated from holding your headset while looking lovely, and furthermore going about as a USB center. It has a 7.1 virtual encompass processor for adding that impact to different earphones (which can be connected to by means of a sound jack), despite the fact that on the off chance that you have the Corsair Void Pro RGB you won't require that element.

We found that the Void Pro RGB's remote range was great, covering basically the majority of the huge room we were utilizing it in, in spite of the fact that it lost association when we went into another room.

There are additionally forms of the Void Pro RGB that accompany wires, either USB or simple, so on the off chance that you would prefer not to stress over battery life or range, they might be more reasonable.

Last decision

Generally speaking, we were extremely inspired with the Corsair Void Pro RGB. It offered great sound quality for amusements and films, and the virtual encompass sound was all around actualized.
