    Not for PS4

    So I want to start off by saying that I think this is a great headset... for the PC. If you're intending to get these for the PC, for the price and the sound/mic quality you cannot go wrong and these would warrant a 5 star review. However, if you are looking to buy these for the PS4, THEN STAY AWAY!! This headset work with the PS4, but it's missing a lot of the features that most people look for in a PS4 gaming headset. Let's start with the PROS for PS4: 1. Easy to set up - you just plug in the usb adapter, turn the headset on and you're ready to go. 2. Quality wise, these is a good headset (exception noted in the CONS). The outside of the ear pieces have metal on them. The cushion for your head and ears are both very comfortable and I wore them for 8 hours with some intermittent breaks and I actually kind of forgot I was wearing them. 3. I tried them out on my laptop and the sound quality on a PC is great, especially for the price tag. I didn't test out the Dolby 7.1 surround sound, but I would give the regular audio quality on my laptop an 8/10. Now onto the CONS: 1. Is not very compatible with PS4 sound card - while the headset works and will give you sound and you'll be able to speak, due to the lack of compatibility with the PS4's sound card the innate volume of the sound coming out of the headphones is very low. 2. Lack of control functionality for the PS4 - unfortunately, if you were planning on using these on the PS4 the volume control on the headset doesn't work to increase or decrease the volume. To me this was a bit of a pain because of how quiet the sound already is due to what I stated above and I didn't feel immersed in my game the way I would have liked to be. Also, none of the presets work on the PS4; these only work on the PC as well. 3. In addition to the volume control not working on the PS4, the overall feel of the volume knob feels cheap. There would be times while using it on my laptop that I would try to adjust the volume and it would feel like it would click, but the volume would never adjust so I'd have to try usually 2 to 3 times (especially when turning the volume down) to get it to work properly. So in summary, I am not hating on these headset by any means. I think this would make a great, budget friendly PC headset. My main intention on writing this review was for anyone considering using it on the PS4 (as I found very little to go on review wise about it). While you can still use the headset, just be aware that the volume will be low, especially when compared to PS4 compatible headsets, and you will not be able to adjust it.

    !!COMFORTABLE!!

    I've been through a LOT of headphones/headsets in my search for the best, so when I say that these are one of the MOST COMFORTABLE headsets I've ever worn, I mean it. (ESPECIALLY SINCE I WEAR GLASSES) I can wear these for literal days (I have) and not feel any fatigue/pain from wearing them. Razer or Logitech headsets leave me uncomfortable in hours. + The audio is quite good, even if there is a bit of a focus on the lower ends (as is the norm with "gaming" headphones/sets). If you don't like the default sound, it does include an equalizer in Corsair's iCue software (which is your hub for Corsair product control like Razer's Synapse, or Logitech's Gaming Software). + The range on this set is also pretty good compared to other wireless sets. My Logitech G933s cut in and out frequently just bending over/laying on my side with them on. I can move nearly everywhere in my 900sq ft apartment, only breaking signal near the outer edges of my place. (IF YOU CAN GET IT ON SALE, PICK UP THE SPECIAL EDITION WITH BASE EXTENDER!!!) + Volume control is a rocker instead of a scroller. It increases/decreases 2% (by Windows' volume scale) with each push. HIGHLY preferred over scrollers that can sometimes miss a small scroll when you want to go up or down just a bit. + BIG easy-to-find/feel Mute Mic button in addition to position activated mic. Simple, effective, reliable. - My biggest gripe with the headset is that a big part of its comfort comes from the weaker clamping force, which in turn means that they will slide off easily. Bend over for a while and you'll find them slowly sliding off your head. - Mic isn't the best quality. Same issue that plagues just about *every* gaming headset. (Not a big deal to me, I use a real mic.) - Another issue I have with it is that the mic is not removable, nor does it hide well. The activation distance for it is fairly close to its upward position as well, so all it takes is a small bump downward to turn it on. - RGB color on sides aren't very - Smallest gripe with the headset is the lack of a 3.5mm input on the base or headset. Would be nice to have, but honestly, not a huge deal. TL;DR HIGHLY recommend this headset. It goes on sale often, so keep an eye out! You get so much bang for your buck if you can pick it up cheap. Usual price isn't too bad either, but in my opinion, it's worth holding out until a sale.

    Extremely comfortable, but disappointing overall

    The selling point for these is absolutely comfort. This is an absolutely perfect product for a store like Best Buy where you can go in and try on a bunch of different headsets, as this pair will stand out to you positively when you do that. And comfort is very important, so nailing this is huge. But once you get past that... it's rough. * Audio quality feels only okay, not great, and does seem to suffer from being wireless * The software doesn't help much at all and this often means finagling blindly with Windows 10's more arcane Sound Properties menus, trying to set the highest quality the headset will accept * You only get about 4-6 hours of battery life without charging * Charging and using the headphones at the same time requires two USB-A ports * The headset cannot work directly over USB, it's all wireless audio all the time * There is no Bluetooth, 3.5mm, etc... support to enable the headset to work with other devices That last couple of bullets are what really tank this headset for me. I could deal with less-than-stellar audio quality if the headset were more flexible with its connectivity because the headset is so comfortable to wear that I would love to use it as a generalist headset on-the-go which just so happens to be able to work for PC gaming as well. In that case, I would be strongly tempted to get a better headset as my primary for PC gaming, and to use this for most other activities (and PC gaming on the occasion where it's just more convenient because it's already out or whatever). I could not even get this to do audio + charging while using a Surface Pro 2017 because doing so gobbled all USB connectivity so even trying to use a USB 3.1 4:1 breakout cable, connecting the wireless dongle and power nixed anything else working, and I like using a USB mouse with the Surface Pro when possible, so that's a bit of a dealbreaker. But Corsair's connectivity choices have shoehorned this headset into being a PC gaming headset and not much else, and unfortunately that is the scenario in which I'm more willing to trade comfort for performance.

    Very Good Headset for Pc Gaming

    I have had many different experiences with gaming headsets because they all don’t last very long. After doing hours of research, people recommended Corsair Void Pro. Whether if it’s wireless or wired, they say it’s a good headset regardless. I bought a black wireless one and already it’s $20 more than the white one. Kinda weird but I digress. I went home and and tried it out. It’s DECENT out of the box, but after spending 1-2 hours configurations on the equalizer and Mic settings, it’s sounds amazing! There’s YouTube videos to show you on how to get these headset preforming better. The Mic comes out of the box at -6Dbs which sounds like your in a little box, I raised it to 4dbs and now I sound crystal clear. Very easy to do, and then I search reddit for best eq settings and I was impressed! Reason why it deserves 4/5 because the black color cost more than the white and it’s decent out of the box. However, performance, quality, and looks, 5/5 definitely! Ps: a lot of YouTube videos say the clamping force is weak, my head is on the large side and it fits PERFECTLY. Better than others and it’s very comfortable! The RGB Lighting it’s nice but not nessecary

    My previous headset were corsair also. A much older version, outdated. The USB dongle/wireless plugin was problematic, often dropping signal and cutting out. This new headset however performs near 100% perfectly. It is very comfortable and I've worn it for hours at a time with/without voice chat on Discord for gaming sessions. Sound quality, mic quality seems right on track. The software/drivers seem to function quite well. The software you can install will allow you to customize RGB settings, surround sound settings, equalizer, bass etc. Quality, comfort are 5 stars for construction, length of time wearing, they don't feel flimsy or like they'll break easily. Many reviewers complained of overheating on their ears with the RGB lights on. I noticed no difference with or without them, no extreme heat or discomfort. Sound quality. Overall excellent. I never use the 7.1 settings, i tried them out with movies, games, music etc and it just sounds weird and not like surround sound, but in my experience all headphones sound weird with surround sound. Using them without surround sound they are quality, the volume levels are surprisingly low. At max volume they are not as loud as most other headphones i've used.. not that we really need them at max, but just a comparison/thought. I have not used many gaming headsets and cannot compare to razors, or other brands. I recommend picking these up on sale if possible. Give them a few days to adjust to the sound differences. I went from 5.1 to 7.1 and everything sounded different, took tweaking of equalizer etc to get it where I like. Get on sale, not quite 5 star product. Volume could be louder but not a deal breaker. The bass is great imo. One of the best things i've found with these are listening to binaural audio tracks. Smarter Every Day space x binaural video on youtube is a great example. These headphones are beautiful for this if make it sound like you are truly there watching a live space launch.

    Works Great For Me

    I got this product after owning Logitech headsets for years, which i was happy with also by the way. This Corsair headset is lighter to wear and i love the wireless ability vs the wired i've always owned. I often forget i CAN get up and walk around with them on. haha. I made the switch from the wired set i had owned because too many times the cord got wrapped up in my chair wheels and i'd pull them off my desk and onto the wood floor...where after so many times, the wood floor won and the logitech headset stopped playing sound out of one side. I didn't want to pay another 100-150 for a headset and do the same thing again. I decided to give this Corsair headset a try after reading a number of reviews and i've been very pleased with them. The mic sounds great to my friends on the other end of teamspeak (so did the logitech though) The only thing I think my ears are picking up differently are the 7.1 surround sound seemed a tad better in the logitech set but i'm not sure as its broken now so cant compare more fairly. That being said, i'm not disappointed in the surround on the Corsair either as there have been plenty of times in gaming i've jolted around due to a sound effect coming from the headset :) so its good regardless. I've been able to wear them for hours with no stress on head or ears either so i'm very pleased with the purchase and got them for about 70 bucks so quite please with the price/quality too. Music playing through them also sound just fine to my ears also so im happy that part of them works well also.

    OK for the cheap wireless option

    I use the void pro for gaming at home. Good points are it is wireless. decent sound, the excessive room in the earcups allow you to wear it for a long time. OK packaging. Quite a number of gripes with this headset: 1. The fit is very loose. Headset may fall off when turning your head or looking down. This is a dealbreaker for most people, but this is one of the few options at this pricepoint. I think it is worth it to spend 2x more than this to avoid lifelong disappointment. 2. Made from cheap plastic/ thin metal. Doesn't feel premium. It also isn't priced to be. 3. Earcups are large and the whole thing looks clunky. 4. Headset does not automatically turn off after lack of activity. 5. Headset takes a good 3 secs to connect to the receiver 6. The toggle button sucks and makes adjusting the volume a pain. also it seems to increment to a bit too loud and a bit too quiet. 7. Wireless receiver is excessively large. It should be the size of my fingernail, but its the size of my thumb. I'm not comfortable with this hanging loose on a computer. I'd use an USB extender. 8. Pressing down on the volume toggle usually results in just changing the volume. Why is this a button? 9. in my opinion, excessive gamer finishes make this look un-professional in the workplace 10. This may be bad luck on my part but I am noticing my corsair stuff breaks after a year. In one case, within 60days... Their products are not robust and you should not expect it to be for the low asking price.

    Not bad for being one of the cheapest

    Posted

    I've been using these for about 3 months now. I either own or have owned the Logitech G933, Razer Man o war, and the Steelseries Arctis 7 wireless headsets. The comfort of these are the best out of all of them, I can wear them for hours without pain or ear sweat. Build quality is outstanding (right up there with the Arctis 7). Sound quality is decent but I think all the other ones are a bit better. Surround sound quality is meh (It's better than the Arctis 7 but worse than the Razer and G933). Wireless range is fine for me but it's the lowest out of the bunch. The microphone is pretty decent but is a little quiet (better than the arctis and G933 but not as good as the Razer.) So... the annoyances. My main annoyance is the battery life. It's the shortest out of the bunch. And if you get these you'll either want a backup headset for when it dies (you can't charge it and use it at the same time) or constantly make sure it's fully charged. I'm plugging these in every other day where all the other ones I'd charge them about once a week. Another annoyance is that the mic side-tones will stop working when you mute/un-mute. To get it to work again you can try to mute / un-mute (sometimes that works) but often I'll adjust the sidetone volume in the software to make it work again. I'm pretty sure this is a software issue and hopefully corsair fixes it, but I'm not holding my breath. The other issue is if you record your gameplay whenever you mute/unmute your mic you'll hear that in your videos - I don't care about it but just letting you know. And the final issue you might care about is that the headset fits rather loose. I have a medium-large head and it feels a touch loose. The good news is that it doesn't clamp down very hard so it's nice and comfortable. A down side with the cloth earcups and lack of clamping force is that sound leaks out of these pretty easy, so that's something to consider if you don't want others to hear whatever you're listening to. So overall it has annoyances as do all headphones I've owned but the comfort and build quality makes this wireless headset my favorite thus far.

    Good But Not Perfect

    When I was looking for my next headset after my Logitech G930 died I had a few requirements. I needed something wireless, comfortable, with good sound and excellent battery life. The Corsair Void Pro mostly lives up to my expectations, with a few exceptions. The Good Build quality seems above average for the price. The headset itself is not light, which I'll talk about more in a minute. The headset is fairly comfortable, with cups that fit over your ears rather than on them. The fabric cover rather than a faux leather/vinyl is preferable, but does seem to let in a little more outside noise than some other headsets. The mic works as expected, and the optional mic feedback is a feature I don't think I can live without anymore. Range is also quite acceptable, and I'm able to walk anywhere in my 2k sq ft home without losing the signal. Battery life is also decent, and seems to last for about 3-4 fairly prolonged sessions. The headset can be used while charging, which should just be a given for any wireless headset. The Bad The headset is heavy (I said we'd come back to this), so heavy that I found it did not sit securely on my head. When I tilted my head forward or backward the weight of the headset would cause it to shift around quite a bit, and even fall off. Sometimes the headset would pivot on my ears, and the headband would flip either forward in front of my eyes, or backward onto my neck. I was able to solve the problem by attaching a strap to the back of the headset. With this modification the headset is very stable and comfortable. Software can also be a little buggy. I've had several problems with Discord not recognizing the headset, with the mic feedback suddenly stopping, with windows not recognizing the headset, and a few other buggy issues. Verdict On the whole, the Void Pro works well when it works, and it works much more often than it doesn't. The rear headband hack fixed the one glaring design issue that I had, but I'd like to see Corsair include this feature stock. I don't care about the LED lighting, but if you're into that then this headset should please you. There are a few other good options out there, but on the whole I'm happy with this purchase.

    Great above average headset but heavy

    At first, I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep this. It's a great sounding headset for the price range. The ear cups are not leather, so it breaths a lot better, and I don't have to worry about fake leather peeling and flaking after a couple years. It fits looser on the head. I have a XL wide asian head and I wear glasses, and this still fit loose on me. I definitely could wear this for hours without discomfort, but it's heavy enough I always know I have it on. Sound quality is great for the price point. I played with all the EQ settings and stuff, but really, the 7.1 surround is gimmicky. It worked with some things and not others. I could will myself to believe it worked, but it wasn't worth the hassle of worrying what setting i'm in for music or movies or games or phone conference. Things I love: 1. There's a visual queue when your mic is off (red light at the tip). 2. Voice that tells you if it's off or turned on. 3. If it's plugged into charger, it never turns off. If it's on battery, it will eventually turn off. 4. Mine's yellow. Love that it's not black. :) 5. Metal construction. I don't expect the band or swivel points to break anytime soon. 6. USB dongle is portable. I can move this to my laptop easily. 7. No sound latency like bluetooth headphones. Dislike: 1. I wish cable interface was a USB C connection instead of micro USB. You can never tell which way the cable is flipped before you jam it in. 2. Wish it was lighter. 3. Wish battery was replaceable. This is a big bulky headset. There's room, if they tried.

    Best headset tested against the Logitech 933

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    I bought this and the Logitech 933 after reading reviews and listening to in-store demos. After weeks of using them both I returned the Logitech and went with the (cheaper) Corsair Void Pro. tl;dr The Corsair Pro simply performs better all the way around and is more comfortable (and cheaper). PROS: - Sound was better. The Corsair has a frequency range beyond that of the Logitech. Both in lower and higher hertz ranges. This means better bass and crisper highs/treble. - Mic was better. Logitech Mic has static. The mic is not crisp and clear but you can be heard. Not for biz meetings though. The Corsair is simply more crisp and clear. - More comfortable for extended wear. After more than an hour I needed to reposition the Logitech more than once to avoid physical pressure on my ears. The Corsair feels lighter and has better padding for comfort. - Better range. The Logitech will not reach more than maybe 25 ft away or through maybe(!) two walls. Could be a limitation of the compact wireless dongle. The Corsair Pro (only the Pro) has a USB base that the USB dongle plugs into to increase its range. It is def noticeable. CONS: - The 933 has a better overall design. The mic extends/retracts into the headset frame. The wireless stick even fits inside the headset for storage. - The 933 has the best RGB color options and design. The best looking headset on the market. Many color options and the lights are all over the headset for much styling.

    Best Bang for the $$$$

    I bought two of these, one for my brother and one for myself. I will be comparing these to the Playstation Platinum Headset (ranging from $129-$149, depending on sales). Comfort: these are amazingly comfortable. They dont clamp on your head like the Platinums do. They also dont make my ears/head hot, the Platinums don't either. Build Quality: There's definitely some build sturdiness and nothing feels like it'll break. It's no where near as sturdy/rigid as the Platinums albeit, but still commendable. Sound: This headset sounds FAR better than the Platinums in both aspects be it speaker output and mic input. The Platinums do fine but compared to this it's an easy pick. The Void comes with Corsair's iCUE audio software that let's you pick and customize EQ presets. The best way to compare what the Platinums output sound's like is Corsair's "FPS" EQ preset. This makes both headsets sound identical, but the main issue is the Platinums ALWAYS sound like that while the Void can be changed for when you want to watch a movie or listen to music. Both headsets can be used on PC and PS4. The iCUE software EQ cannot be changed/adjusted while being used on PS4 but whatever you have it set to while on PC will carry over on the dongle to your PS4, which is cool! Also there is a wide range of RGB control. I'd recommend this headset to ANYONE that wants an affordable quality product. Especially if you can get it on sale for around $40-$60.

    I'm posting this review after only a week of use. If something changes, I'll revise it accordingly. I had a Logitech G35 wired headset that I loved, aside from the fact it was wired. Lo and behold one clumsy action ripped the headset out and broke the USB connection. Which is a shame because I loved that headset. The wireless version didn't have great reviews so I looked at other options and decided to give this one a try. Pros: - Fits well, fully adjustable. - Love the lights, and they're customizable! - Mic lifts up which auto-mutes it - Has Volume control on the bottom of the left earpiece - I can now get up and walk to grab a drink without having to take my headset off. - Zero drop in call quality. NOTE: I have not tried going more than ~15 feet from the USB receiver as I currently live in a condo. I'll be testing this longer range after I move. - Very snug fit over the ears, which blocks out a lot of sound even when your game / music volume is low. I'm considering it a pro even though it means my girlfriend has to throw something at me to get my attention now. Cons: - I loved being able to pause/play music on the G35, I wish this headset had that. - I now occasionally get stuff thrown at me. See last pro listed above.

    I would say that I would recommed this product to whoever is a serious gamer who needs to feel as if they were immersed in the game that they are playing. Any experienced gamer knows that your sound is just as important as your keyboard and mouse. This Wireless Void Pro RGB Gaming headset from Corsair is something you can truly rely on. Pros: Great battery life, When paired with the ICUE software it makes doing a simple change to your headset quite easy with the versatility of the software,It’s Discord Certified Which was another reason I purchased this headset, and finally the last pro. These are amazingly comfy to wear for one of those extra long gaming sessions! Now some of the cons (There aren’t many I just felt I should add something): Now even though the ICUE software is very nice 95% of the time it can also be a pain but overall not bad, when you go update the headset make sure you read things right you press the wrong update button and off go the voice prompts and control from ICUE you basically have to go into your computer and reset the drivers and reinstall them by taking the USB in and out after waiting some time. After all that said I hope that this has helped anyone who has gotten to the end I know that this was a lot to read but this is truly a great choice for anyone wanting crisp sound with a true feeling of success when they start playing that game and understand everything that was put into this wonderful system! Thanks and have a great Day!

    Good Replacement For My G930s

    I use these almost daily for PC gaming and listening to music, and I'm very pleased by their performance for the most part. I haven't had any connection issues with these since the day I bought them, and they have a shocking range. Only downfall to this headset is the lack of bass. The 5.1 surround is great, the audio comes through very clearly, and even with the headset cranked I don't really get any distortion. The lack of base doesn't bother me much because I have a good desktop sound system, but for some I know that this could be a deal breaker. I primarily use these for MX/SX racing games and shooter games, and the surround sound doesn't disappoint. It's very easy to distinguish where the sounds are coming from in games with the surround on this headset. The fit of this headset took me a few uses to get adjusted to, I was so accustomed to my Logitech G930s. This headset does not squeezes my head too tightly, and it doesn't make my head sore after long gaming sessions, which is a nice change from my last few headsets. I also like the that the foam around the ear pieces are covered with cloth rather than the pleather that other headsets I've used in the past were equipped with. It's much more comfortable this way.

    The best wireless headset in the market

    Corsair is known as the top-tier PC peripherals and parts in the market. From the PSU to RAM, mouse + keyboard to headsets. And this is no exception. The headset was at a steal during Black Friday (was bought at $75) but even for its retail price ($99) it's still worth every cent. Pro: +Beautifully designed and ergonomic to ever head shape. +LONG battery life. Each charge can hold up to 16 hours. +Voice notification to replace beeps for settings is really helpful. Software is easy to setup and use if you have Corsair products. +There's an option to change audio into 7.1 surround sound and it's absolutely amazing for in-game sound effects or movies. +Mic is really sensitive so it makes great for programs like Discord that can adjust voice pickup. Cons: -RBG can reduce battery life, but can be turned off. -Connection when turning it on takes a few seconds, but can instantly connect if you place the headset close to the USB. -Headset is somewhat weighed where it'll slide or even fall off it you tilt your head back or forward. -The USB dongle could be more detectable. On the limited edition model, there's a USB attachment that can place the dongle closer to you but you can purchase a USB extension from Best Buy provided they have it. Summary: It's absolutely worth every single cent. Warranty is pretty long and can be replaced quickly because Corsair is amazing with their customer service. The headset makes an amazing replacement to those who want something long term/permanent. However, the price tag is $99 and if you're looking for something in budget, this isn't for you. But as stated, it's worth every single set.

    I really like this headset, a lot. I've mostly bought cheaper Razer brand headphones in the past, and these blow those out of the water. However, the fit is terrible. They are so loose on my head that if I look down, they fall straight off. There's not enough clamping force in them. It's also loose enough that there's a very noticeable gap between the bottom of the earcups and the area below my ears, so I do not get the noice cancellation effect, and sound clearly escapes from those areas so my family can clearly hear everything when they're in the same room. These headphones are also very quiet compared to other ones I've used. I think they sound great (when bass isn't too loud - when it is, sound is very muddy, like stock car audio) and I really want to love these more, but I don't think I can keep them if they won't even stay on my head or even completely surround my ears. I'm a pretty big Corsair fan, especially for their keyboards, but I'm pretty sad that I think I might have to use a different brand for the headphones. Corsair doesn't have any other headsets (at least at Best Buy) that fit my criteria for what I'm looking for at the moment. Sad.

    Tinny sound, trash microphone, keep scrolling

    I bought this to replace a well loved Turtle Beach setup, and I regret it. After charging the system overnight, and having my OS hijacked by the Corsair dashboard, I finally got a chance to try it. The audio quality is sub-par, and very loud. Out of the box the thing is will blow your eardrums out so be cautious if you ignore my 1 star review. Turning it down to about 30% makes it listenable if you have normal hearing. The audio also sounds tinny, meaning that even with the bass turned way up it has a sort of "old timey" radio quality. Great if you're listening to "Fibber McGee and Molly", not so great if you've been alive any time after 1975. But I could live with this, if it were a $25 headset. But the microphone is where I re-boxed it and will be bringing it back. Even with the sliders at max, it barely registers any sound. Even when I put my hand under it and SCREAM it gets one bar. You can do some tricks to "hear" your own voice through the headset, and when little I could hear was also tinny. It sounded like someone had used a microphone from a Bluetooth phone earpiece, hastily soldered it into the slick housing, called it a day. For livestreaming, using a team chat, or even just using a VOIP service, this is purely unacceptable. For reference, my old Windows 95 stick mic works better than the Corsair mic, and that's just not right. I expected so much more from a company that prides itself on being a "leading source for gaming hardware". So, bottom line. If you've read this far, just put the box down and get another product. This one is a waste of money. Don't bother with it.

    Fair gaming headset for wireless

    Let me preface this with the fact that I'm a little old-school and don't care for devices that require a lot of special software to do what they do. I also don't really see a personal benefit to a wireless headset versus a wired one. Saying that, the sound quality on this headset is pretty good. The headset utilizes a USB adapter instead of your analog audio ports. This can be a plus if your onboard audio isn't good or isn't loud enough, etc. But then, you have to run Corsair's software suite to control it, which works fine most of the time. I encountered times where the software would stop behaving correctly (voice prompts would stop working, the "surround sound" would get buggy and give you weird sound artifacts, etc..) These issues would require a reboot to fix. The headset is pretty heavy, so I started noticing some neck fatigue after long sessions. The battery life had a lot to be desired in those long sessions anyway. Ultimately I ended up using these with the charging cable plugged in all the time, which made me wonder why I had invested in a wireless headset anyway. All of these things led to my returning them for a traditional wired gaming headset, which I'm personally much happier with. This is my own experience and opinion(s), and your mileage may vary.

      Sorry to hear about your issue, we strive to have a headset for every single person out there but sometimes it doesn't work out. Feel free to give us a try in the near future and I hope we then have something that'll fit you and your uses much better. CorsairGaming

    An OK headset -could be better

    The headset is good in the fact that it has high quality surround sound; is wireless; can be hooked up to PC, Xbox, PS4 or what have you; and, if you're into pretty lights, it's got a bit of that too. But here are where the problems begin: The fit is horrible. I am an adult female with a relatively large head (so I thought) and even at their smallest setting, they don't fit me comfortably (much less my 6 year old daughter, whom I also bought a pair for). Not only are they large and clunky, the actual ear parts go down too low and do not close around my ears properly. There is about a half-inch gap of opening at the bottom, which makes them not the greatest thing considering the price of these puppies. Prior to this, I was using my Turtle Beach 700's, and those have a MUCH more snug, comfortable fit (the only reason I bought the Corsairs is out of fear the green accents on the TB's would be affected by the green screen setup I'm currently building, but next time, it's no contest between the brands--TB wins hands down). If I were Corsair, I would focus less on the pretty multi-colored lights and make a headset that comfortably fits a normal-sized human head.

      Sorry to hear these weren't for you and your family. If possible, give the HS70 headset a try as that may be a better fit. CorsairGaming
