The Corsair VOID is a quite successful attempt at making a piece of affordable wireless headphones for gaming with impressive comfort as well.
Corsair Void Review Overview
+Very Affordable: At under $100 it’s one of the cheapest wireless headsets in the market. +Amazing Quality of Sound: It’s all about the quality of sound, and this headset does an excellent job. +Super Comfortable: Tired of uncomfortable headsets? This one will make your ears feel comfy.
- It doesn’t include a retractable microphone arm - It doesn’t come with great bass effects - Sound leakage
Let’s be honest: Not all of us can afford to pay $300 for a single headset, especially if you do this as a hobby. That’s why the push for cheaper headsets has increased, and in order to meet this demand, Corsair has launched this product which is more affordable and yet delivers plenty of value.
It’s cheap, yet it is incredibly comfortable. You know, certain companies cut corners in order to offer a cheaper price, but Corsair has done it without affecting the quality of the product.
Would I use it for long gaming sessions? Of course, I would, it is very comfortable and I would gladly use it for an entire gaming marathon. Even though the earcups look quite different, they have been designed to enhance comfort. The memory foamed earcups create a great environment for your ears.
The quality of sound is pretty good. Even though it does not include bass effects, it won’t tire you and will give you an edge over your competition. I can say that it’s got a better quality than many other wireless headsets in this same price range.
Would I recommend it? Of course, because it’s cheap, comfortable and the quality of sound (the most important feature) is top-of-the-line for the price.
Now that this summary is over, and if you still have questions, then let’s get a bit geekier and come with me to check a more detailed review right below.
A Proper Review: In-depth look at the Corsair VOID
Let’s begin this section by reviewing the design of this headset.
A headset needs to be comfortable and deliver a great quality of sound, yet it also needs to look awesome. Corsair has done a great job with it design-wise because they used the trio of sails logo instead of the tribal logo, that’s an improvement.
Moreover, it looks professional. The carbon build also makes sure that it looks and feel solid. You can get it in Black or White color. But in my personal opinion, the black one looks better and pretty badass.
But the design has also a lot to do with the comfort factor. Let’s get finished with the aesthetics and now let’s jump into the reasons on why it’s so comfortable.
The kite-shaped ear cups are the reason. They perfectly adapt to your ears, and thanks to the soft memory foam padding, make it super comfy for your ears. It makes it perfect for long gaming sessions. Moreover, the black microfiber cloth is very durable and comfortable.
It’s also important to mention that you get a generous range of height adjustment. So it’s easy to adjust it to your own preference to make it even more comfortable.
It looks great and is very comfortable, which is amazing for a headset in this price range.
Now let’s review the sound and its performance.
The Sound and Performance:
In a nutshell: It sounds very well, and it’s surprising if you take into account the low price.
First off, the quality of sound is pretty clear. It’s easy to tell the direction of the sound, especially from left or right, which is great for games like Battlefield where you need to have a strong situational perception.
The directional sound is quite good, and I didn’t expect it from a cheap headset like this one. The bass is not that powerful, but for the price, you really cannot complain.
If you want to make the most out of this headset, then you should download the CUE Software by Corsair. This will allow you to adjust certain settings according to your preference, which will improve the quality of sound according to what you want.
Now, in order to make this review honest, I have to mention something very important: The sealing is not so good.
If you use it in very loud environments, then it won’t perform that well, as it won’t be able to keep the environment sound from disturbing you. And a similar thing happens if you use it in a very quiet environment, but in this case, people will hear the sound coming from your VOID.
The sound leakage is the biggest problem this headset has along with the weak bass, but other than that it’s a great choice!
