Today we are going to be taking a look at the Corsair Void series of headsets. The VOID comes in many options; Stereo, Surround Hybrid, USB and Wireless. On hand we have the Void Surround and will give you a more in depth look, just follow along.
PACKAGING, CONTENTS & PRICING
The packaging on the Void follows that of the rest of their gaming gear, such as the K65 Rapid Fire Keyboard we recently reviewed. With a mainly black box lined with a yellow border the headset sits humbly centered on the front of the box along with a few of the key features the Void possesses.
Around the back you’ll get a much more detailed looked at some of the key features we will get hands on with a little later on, such as the console compatibility as well as the use of Corsairs Utility Engine (CUE). Constructed with 50mm drivers we look forward to the sound we hopefully will enjoy!
Taking the interior box out of the retail packaging you’ll see it’s in a sort of half show-off box which we are kind of confused by as once you open the box you just want to get the headset out and given there is no window on the retail packaging this interior detailed box is a little unnecessary and takes a few moments to figure out the puzzle to get the cord and the headset out. Included in the box is an instruction manual, warranty guide as well as the dolby 7.1 USB dongle.
At the time of this review the Corsair Void Hybrid Stereo Gaming Headset was listed at $79.99 on Amazon.
BUILD & COMFORT
Constructed for the majority out of plastic this headset has a light cool feel to it. Each earpiece is colour schemed red with a glossy black boasting the Corsair logo. There is a long cord that extends from the left ear, which is where all the action on this headset is happening. It has a large mute button as well as a volume toggle at the bottom-back of the earpiece for quick in-game volume control or cancellation.
Also, the microphone extends here as well clicking up and down in increments that move the mic about an inch per click. The microphone has a mostly rubber feel with what we will assume is a metal rod throughout the center to keep it in which ever angle or shape you bend it for fine tuning microphone position.
Each side extends about an inch and a half hopefully assisting in fitting all head sizes. Across the top Corsair is boldly printed with a very comfortable padding for the top of the head for those long gaming sessions. The same foam padding is used around the ear cup for that closed ear feeling. However as comfortable as this padding is it doesn’t seem to keep out any exterior noise and dependent on preference could be a factor in your decision to purchase the Void.
Wearing the Void overall is very comfortable headset that we had no complaints wearing for extended periods of time.
