Corsair VOID Surround Gaming Headset | Review

what's up guys it's ID from Texas and I am here to give you my review of Corsairs void surround gaming headset so I've been using this the past week or so playing the new Tom Clancy's division game and here's what I have to say about this all right so the void surround gaming headsets are available in wireless USB analog stereo and hybrid stereo however the gaming headset I'm reviewing in this video features a Dolby 7.1 USB adapter and universal compatibility that's right guys this headset doesn't just work on PCs it's compatible with smartphones tablets ps4 and even Xbox one given that you have this stereo adapter for it let's start with the price this headset will cost you around 80 bucks MSRP but you can pick them up for a few bucks cheaper on Amazon which I'll have linked below the construction is made out of plastic which helps keep the weight and cost down and the cushions have this breathable cloth material which helps keep my ears nice and cozy a little too cozy if you ask me my ears did get pretty warm with these on for about an hour which honestly I don't think I'll be able to wear these in summer here in California which gets over triple digits as far as comfort level I gotta say these are pretty damn good I played the division for a good three hours and my ears did not feel fatigued at all the advanced with a good amount of padding and the ear cups are large enough to fit around my ear for a really nice snug fit now because they are made out of plastic it felt like I can easily break the headset but to my surprise these are actually pretty sturdy and flexible for the most part you get aluminum sliders which extend quite a bit and the ear cups swivel about 90 degrees to get you that perfect fit the ear cups have this matte red finish that surrounds a glossy black surface with a courser logo needless to say I was immediately attracted to the color scheme on the left ear cup you will find a mute button and right behind the earpiece is a volume wheel which is actually pretty convenient to reach during gaming the answer also comes with a built-in mic which can be adjusted from top to bottom and bending the mic allows you to shape it into any desired angle you prefer as far as sound quality is concerned well you can be the judge all right so this is the microphone test I'm wearing the Corsair void surround gaming headset and I'm talking directly inside the microphone and this is without editing so yeah I definitely wouldn't recommend doing voice-overs with this thing if it's just for gaming it will get the job done now let's talk about the sound is this whole surround sound thing a gimmick well no it's not I can definitely hear the difference coming from regular headphones like my m50x is for example the sound is more immersive and the best way I can explain this is that I can hear explosions and gunshots behind me that actually come from behind me with the voice around I can pinpoint where the action is happening and that goes for vocals explosions footsteps and other sounds as well it's pretty cool it kind of gives the game a 3d feel combine that with an ultra wide monitor and you truly get a fully immersive experience using the voice to listen to music has also been really positive for me the lows are definitely in the deep end you get a really nice base the mids are well-defined however I did find the highs to be lacking in clarity using my own 50 X's I can clearly hear background music in my youtube videos but switching to these the background music becomes very faint and quiet that's something I definitely wanted to mention you also get no noise isolation even though these have a closed back design it honestly feels like open-back headphones I can hear all the ambient noises around especially when I'm typing on my mechanical keyboard I mean don't get me wrong this isn't a bad thing it just depends on personal preference I'm pretty sure the cloth ear cup material is the reason why you don't get a nice tight seal finally the last thing I want to talk about is the Corsair utility engine which is a program that allows you to adjust the mic levels and create up to five EQ profiles to get the sound you desire or you can just simply select from a pre-configured list you can use this software to make the bass deeper or get those crystal-clear hives you're basically in control all I can say is I definitely had lots of fun messing around with this to get the sound I was going for so in conclusion I think for its price this is a solid gaming headset other than having a pretty crappy mic flimsy build and no noise isolation which is a personal preference this is something I would pay 80 bucks for if it were to go anything above 100 I would say no the Dolby 7.1 surround sound really makes my game play much more enjoyable and the comfort level is as good as my HyperX cloud two's yeah it's that comfortable so that pretty much wraps the review I'll drop links below if anyone's
