Take your gaming strategy to the next level with this Corsair VOID wireless headset, which features a noise-canceling microphone that makes it simple to lay out your plan of attack, and up to 40' wireless range for flexibility as you play.
So worth it.

First of, a little bit about me. I consider myself to be a gaming enthusiast and I have owned previous versions of Corsair's Headsets such as the 2100 and H2100. (H2100 earcups were made of a much better material then the 2100) but nevermind that because the VOID RBG SE is very impressive. Its made of mostly metal with some yellow colored plastic accents (Even on the usb cables) and although it has some weight to it the way Corsair designed the frame makes it relax on your head in a great way. It also doesn't feel like its going to slide off if you lean to the side or look down. They've gone away from the metal wheel the 2100's had and replaced it with the Cue control switch which I'm still trying to get used to. The earcups are a much appreciated improval with the flat bottoms. They relax around your ears much more comfortably. The round earcups found on other headsets would pinch a nerve or cause a pain right behind my ears after a few hours of use forcing me to take them off for an hour or so. But heres some things that I've noticed so far that I'm loving.
Metal Frame feels solid
RGB colors are bright and accurate
Flat bottom ear cups are very comfortable
You can tell its 7.1 Dolby Digital Surround sound
Battery life off of a single charge is awesome
My only con is that its Yellow. I understand that this is the Yellowjacket version so I wont hold it against them. The color is starting to grow on me.
P.S PLEASE. Please. Download the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) software for the headset off of their website. It will work without it but depending on your computer it may not set up correctly if you just plug and play.

I was shopping around for a new headset and saw that Corsair had a new wireless setup I wanted to check out. I have a set of their first headsets and was very happy with them, but I was tired of constantly tripping and rolling over the cord.
The reviews on the VOID was mixed, lots of people complaining about the mic volume but I figured it was a user issue. After picking them up and getting home, I did notice the outbound volume was a bit soft, and I had to really speak up. I visited the Corsair forums to see if there were others and it looked like there were.
The good news is that it was an easy fix. The mic just needed to be bent a touch and get it closer to the users mouth. After doing this it made a HUGE difference. From test recordings not only was the volume drastically increased, my voice was a lot clearer and sounded better than my other headsets I have had over the years.
I already had a Corsair K70 RGB keyboard, it was wonderful to see the drivers and utilities were already installed with the Corsair CUE software. It instantly picked up the new headset and I was up and running in a matter of minutes. Lots of bells and whistles to play with the lighting as well, took some time to get it to match my keyboard but well worth it.
I’ve had the headset for about 5 days now and have been running them for a lengthy bit of time to get the drivers broke in. They have been sounding better and better over the past few days, typical of a headset and just need to loosen up the drivers. Most of the time I have found that wireless headphones are lacking in sound quality, not these. I have a expensive set of headphones with a separate amp that I use daily. These are not as good as them, but I would honestly say they are about 85% of the quality for a LOT less then what I paid for the other setup. I have been using them over the past few days to listen to music, one to break them in fully but also as I love the sound quality and not tripping over the cord on my other headphones.
Battery life is amazing. I had another set of headphones from a different company that I use for work. Its Bluetooth and mainly used for phone calls. I can barely get 2-3 hours out of those on a good day. These headphones boast a 16 hour battery life and what I have seen so far, its pretty darn good. I will play games for 4-5 hours a night and the battery level has not dipped below 80%. This is used for game sound as well as communication with others in the game. The people I play with DO NOT SHUT UP… EVER.. so they are constantly getting used and the battery is barely phased after a full night of gaming.
The range is not bad, but I have seen other headsets with better. Being around the computer for usage has no problems, but if I need to wander into the kitchen for a drink I need to make sure I am in line of sight of the adapter or else I will start getting warning sounds from the headset.
If you are looking in this price range for a GREAT pair of headphones, check these out as I do not think you will be disappointed!
- Superior sound quality for a wireless setup
- Battery life is amazing
- Setup was very quick (due to the software already being installed from another Corsair product, but the initial install of the Corsair CUE software was painless)
- Very comfortable
- Fun bells and whistles to play with (RGB lighting and the EQ/Dolby settings)
- Ear cups swivel nicely to lay flight on a table
-Mic volume out of the box needs some help, but after positioning the mic properly everything was perfect
- My kids keep running off with the headset as they love to wear them.

This isn't my first Corsair product, owning a K65, M65 RGB, Vengeance ram and now this headset. I have not a single problem with any of Corsair's products other than that horrible logo they went with. Anyway this headset is very comfortable, sounds great and even works on my PS4(not a console peasant).

Great headset, super comfortable, I use it all day at work as a VoIP phone, and listen to music all day. I've never had a low battery warning, even on 10hr+ days. That's with constant music blasting all day.

I own many gaming headsets including a couple Corsair headsets and this is my favorite by far. For even moderate usage, the one thing I find most important is comfort and these fit the bill with the microfiber ear cups (much improved over the H2100's I had previously) and the amount of pressure on the crown of my head is a lot less.
On ear controls seem like it's a fairly minor thing but in real world usage, it's a great feature. FInd it a lot more accessible compared to finding in-line controls like with a lot of other headsets.
As with the 2100 series of products, the battery life is great. Only have had these for a few days but going on over 12 hours of usage right now and battery is still good.

Comfortable and Good Quality
Posted by: icantspeel from: on
This headset looks very nerdy so I try not to address them as a fashion statement. At the time I purchased the headset on sale which I suggest everyone wait and do. The default sound quality is equal to if not better than Razer's Kraken Headsets. The software provided by Corsair is very useful and I have not had any issues tuning the headset to my preferred levels. I use this headset with a custom PC and a PS4. Because Corsair's equalizer software is only for PC I do see better audio coming from my PC because of my customized settings. This is not to say that audio performance on the PS4 is sub-par. While playing titles such as Star Wars Battlefront and Black Ops 3 I can hear with the greatest detail the work that the game developers have done with the audio. The comfort level of the Corsair Void is much better than my Razer Kraken. The ear cups are covered with a fabric that is comfortable. The ear pads and headband pads are constructed with a squishy material that is firm enough to keep the headset from sliding around on your head but soft enough to where you can wear this headset for hours. I often forget that I have them on. On a more critical note I would like to see the ability to be able to turn off all lighting functions to reserve some battery life. Additionally the microphone boom is not adjustable other than in a vertical rotation. The boom places the end of the microphone so close to my face sometimes I feel like it might get stuck in my mouth if I dare speak towards it. Overall I purchased this with the expectation of high quality audio and less from a communication standpoint and I am happy with my purchase.

The sound is great, clear audio, deep rich bass
The build quality is great
The price isn't bad
The mic is what you would expect from a gaming headset
Software is fine, however I prefer Razer's software
They're comfortable, even with glasses
They look great
7.1 is fine
My only gripe is that they're not tight enough on my head. They would sometimes fall off if i pointed my head down. I'm sure most people wouldn't mind their looseness, but I easily fixed with a rubber band on the back. I would consider these if you were looking for a good headset.

Works with PS4 too!
Posted by: George from: Columbia, MD on
I bought this to use with my PS4. Got tired of using a mic I couldn't easily mute (bult-in to my sennheiser headphones). This works well, but note that only the power and mute buttons work with the PS4.
