The Corsair Void Pro is a good gaming headset that offers impressive sound quality and a comfy feel at a good price as per my review. It brings wireless surround sound to a lower price, but if that's not necessarily the feature you are looking for, then there are better options for cheaper.
- Recording quality is nice
- Fair Price
- Excellent sound quality
- Nice design
- Only the logo has lighting
- Mic sometimes doesn't turn on automatically
Corsair Void Pro vs HyperX Cloud 2
The HyperX Cloud 2 is an overall better gaming headset than the Corsair Void Pro RGB wireless gaming headset if you don’t need a wireless headset as per my review. The HyperX even has a far better microphone for online gaming. They’re also easier and are better-built than Corsair.
On the opposite hand, the Corsair has slightly better audio reproduction, especially with sharp noises within the treble range.
Unfortunately, they can’t be used wired and have a comparatively short battery life, which are some things you won’t need to worry about with the wired HyperX.
However, you’ll be ready to customize their sound with the in-app EQ, which HyperX doesn’t have.
|Specs||Corsair Void Pro||HyperX Cloud 2|
|Weight||0.9 lbs||0.7 lbs|
|Low-Frequency Extension||36.62 Hz||15.2 Hz|
|Battery Life||12.4 hours||NA|

Corsair Void Pro vs Corsair HS70
The Corsair Void Pro RGB Wireless and therefore, the Corsair HS70 Wireless are two very similar gaming headphones, but the HS70 is slightly better.
The huge difference between both is that the HS70 feels more premium and better-built. The cups also are slightly larger.
Although it comes during a few color variants, the HS70 doesn’t feature full RGB lighting just like the Void Pro, and its microphone doesn’t sound nearly as good.
|Specs||Corsair Void Pro||Corsair HS70|
|Weight||0.9 lbs||0.8 lbs|
|Low-Frequency Extension||34.62 Hz||20.59 Hz|
|Battery Life||12.4 hours||15 hours|

Corsair Void Pro RGB Wireless Gaming Headset Features Review
As per my review, Corsair positions the Void Pro RGB as a premium headset, and its design certainly helps make a premium impression. With RGB LED lights that cycle through a spectrum of colors, and attached boom mic, and an unsubtle angular design that screams for attention.
But that’s not necessarily a nasty thing. The Corsair Void Pro RGB wireless gaming headset features a rather heavy metal frame, soft fabric cushions on the earcups, and a band that adjusts to suit even very wide heads comfortably. Everything about its design feels solidly constructed.
The Corsair Void Pro RGB comes in both wired and wireless versions, and you can choose between a variety of colors. The cups sit comfortably over your ears, and each features a backlit Corsair logo which may be configured via software to glow during a sort of colors and to match your gaming setup. While it’s the Corsair logo that gets the glowing treatment on these cans, it’s a pleasant enough logo.
On the left side may be a button for muting the mic, an influence button for switching the headset on, and a micro USB charging cable for charging the headset.
Also on the left-hand can sits a mic arm which will be lowered and raised to show the mic on and off. It’s a pleasant touch, as putting the arm into the up position mutes the microphone.
The mic also can be adjusted slightly by bending the arm, so you’ll fine-tune its position for optimum recording quality. The mic quality is fine, sometimes mic not connecting automatically.
Overall, the Corsair Void Pro RGB may be a very nicely designed headset that manages to balance a trendy design with gaming aesthetics like RGB lighting.
Setting up the Corsair Void Pro RGB is pretty simple. All we would have liked to do was plug the transmitter into an RGB USB port and switch on the headset, which then paired instantly. Drivers Windows 10 recognized the Corsair Void Pro RGB once we plugged within the wireless adaptor, and that we also installed the Corsair Utility Engine software.
This software allows you to adjust the settings of the Corsair Void Pro, also as customize its lighting settings. If you’ve got other Corsair products, like the ST100 RBG stand or K95 RGB keyboard, you’ll also configure them via this app.
Corsair Void Pro gaming headset claims 16 hours of playback time on one charge, and as per our review, it actually did a touch better. With the RGB lighting turned off, the gaming headset lasted just for 17 hours and 25 minutes of consistent playback.
However, if you opt to show on the LED lighting, expect worse battery life—I found the battery drained considerably faster with it on.
Sound quality is the most vital factor when it involves headsets, and during this respect, the Corsair Void Pro doesn’t disappoint, especially considering its price. The Corsair Void Pro RGB is pretty much balanced, with non-gaming media, like music, coming through well.
The EQ settings within the Corsair Utility Engine software show, this is often primarily a gaming headset. Therefore the EQ presets are all aimed toward gaming, apart from one that’s for movies. If you would like a headset primarily for taking note of music, then this probably isn’t the simplest choice.
It does have a 7.1 virtual surround processor for adding that effect to other headphones (which are often plugged in via an audio jack), although if you’ve got the Corsair Void Pro RGB, you won’t need that feature.
We found that the Void Pro RGB’s wireless range was excellent, covering just about all of the massive room we were using it in, although it lost connection once we went into another room.
There also are versions of the Void Pro RGB that accompany wires, either USB or analog, so if you do not want to stress about battery life or range, they’ll be more suitable. Overall, the sound quality was excellent, with a believable 7.1 virtual surround sound implementation.
If we see its gaming performance, the Corsair Void Pro RGB performed brilliantly, with punchy and vivid audio and honest use of virtual surround sound, a busy gun battle in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was made much more immersive by the sounds of bullets flying past as we played.
Volume is often controlled via a dial on the left headphone can, and therefore the mic did a really good job of delivering speech both during gameplay and on video calls while also keeping ground noise to a minimum.
Playing on both PS4 games like Dauntless and, therefore, the Outer Worlds sound great. However, the USB dongle is really overlarge to suit the front of a PS4 Pro, which suggests you’ve got to plug it into the rear of the console, right next to the exhaust port—I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t uncomfortable with what proportion heat gets blown at it.
Additionally, as surround sound is tied to the iCUE app, it’s unavailable on the console, which sucks, but it’s not too big of a problem, as there’s little or no support for it in console games anyway.

Overall, As per the review, I am very impressed with the Corsair Void Pro RGB wireless gaming headset. It offered excellent sound quality for games and films, and therefore the virtual surround sound was well implemented.
Recording quality via the mic was also good, making this an excellent headset for communicating with teammates. If surround sound is basically important to you, then this is the best option for the price.
The sound quality, and various EQ profiles, are decidedly game-orientated, which won’t be a drag if you only want to use this headset for enjoying games. If you’re a committed gamer with a variety of Corsair products already sitting on your desk, you’ll be very happy with the Corsair Void Pro RGB wireless gaming headset, especially considering its relatively low price compared to other gaming headsets.
