Just over a year ago we took a look at Corsair’s Void gaming headset. Overall, being fairly impressed with the Void, we look forward to the release of the Void Pro today!
Following consistency with 50mm drivers and a goal of long-wearing comfort, The Void Pro should surely be an asset to the gaming advantage.
PACKAGING, CONTENTS & PRICING
Corsair hasn’t changed much on the packaging from the Void to the Pro. A larger graphic of the headset as well a larger display of some of the main specifications on the front but the primarily black backdrop with gold banners and trim are a standard for the majority of Corsair products.
Following standard, on the back you will see a more intimate description of the specifications and features of the headset. Gaming platform is not an issue with the Void Pro as it is supported on XBOX ONE, PS4, PC, and Mobile devices. However the Dolby 7.1 sound will only be available for PC gaming through the USB adapter. The remainder will receive stereo output.
A noise cancelling microphone helps eliminate background noise and on-headset controls allow you to mute or change volume easily on the fly. As usual you’ll get a warranty guide and a manual.
There are 4 models of the Void Pro:
Surround – Comes in Carbon/Cherry and is wired.
RGB USB – Comes in Carbon/White and is wired.
RGB Wireless – Comes in Carbon/White.
RGB Wireless SE – Comes in Yellow.
All have the same internal specifications and the wireless versions battery last up to 16 hours.
The Void Pro releasing today is set for an MSRP of $79.99 USD for the wired version and as high as $129.99 USD for the wireless SE version.
BUILD & COMFORT
Holding true to the Void structure, the Pro is as well very lightweight and made from mostly plastic. The only visually noticeable difference is the microphone where there seemed to be a red cord running through the microphone center not the attachment is completely black.
Adjusting is not an issue either as the headset extends about an inch and a half on each side, allowing plenty of space for different size brain-buckets (heads). While exterior noise does seem to creep in, it is definitely dampened and by the time we hook this up and are playing games I’m sure we wont’ notice a conversation going on in the same room.
Comfort once again is superb as it is not too tight on the head nor puts pressure around the ear. However, we do think it may be a little too loose, as when we shake our heads even the slightest, they tend to shake around and any form or quick erratic head movement could even have the Void Pro fall right off your head.
SOUND QUALITY & SOFTWARE
The sound quality of the VOID Pro is nothing less than we expect; it’s superb. Especially when connected to via USB through the Dolby Digital dongle. We ran through multiple 7.1 surround tests and not once were we disappointed with the quality.
Using the Void Pro with the Playstation 4 was also very pleasing as we had no problems socializing over games and the clarity once again was outstanding, even though you’re only getting stereo sound.
The Void Pro also uses CUE software as does everything Corsair seems to come out with these days. It all integrates into one program for all peripherals which makes it easy to control and use.
As for the Void Pro Surround that we are reviewing today, there is no LED capabilities and the options in CUE are very limited as you can see. Basically you can adjust mic levels and make equalizer presets to toggle given your listening preference. We imagine with the increasing levels up towards the RGB SE, the synchronization and features obviously will increase.
OVERALL THOUGHTS AND ANALYSIS
Corsair has done a great job with the Void Pro, although at the lowest level, the Void Pro Surround, it is basically a replica of the Void Hybrid. The sound quality is great and the microphone clarity is second to none. Prices Ranging from $79.99 to $129.99 you’re sure to find the one that best suits you.
We would advise to make the stability of the unit a little more firm so that movement doesn’t affect it so drastically as it does now. Outside of that the comfort is superb and easily can be worn for hours on end with no issues and keeping the majority of reasonable outside noise unheard. We gladly give Corsair and the Void Pro Surround a Silver Seal today.
