Corsair VOID Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset Detailed Features
This isn’t Corsair’s first attempt at developing a wireless gaming headset. The VOID’s predecessor, the H2100, is an outstanding wireless gaming headset that I had the privilege of reviewing late last year. So, I can confirm and have seen firsthand that these guys are very astute at improving upon an already sound design.
Above, you will notice a switch or toggle of some sort. That is the CUE Control, which allows for the manipulation of not only the volume, but also equalizer and Dolby surround settings. To control the volume, simply move the dial in one direction or the other. To change from one predefined equalizer setting to the other, depress the dial; it doubles as a button. In order to turn Dolby surround off and on, depress and hold the dial down until you are audibly informed that the setting change has succeeded.
The microfiber-wrapped memory foam ear pads are quite soft and comfortable on the VOID, which is an upgrade from the ear padding on the H2100. Even though the ear pads on the two headsets appears to be the same, the padding on the H2100 was more dense and less forgiving. Those ear pads are still comfortable, just not as comfortable as the ear pads on the Corsair VOID Wireless gaming headset.
The headband on the VOID is also an upgrade over the headband on the H2100. The Corsair VOID’s headband is thinner, softer, and is made of a microfiber-wrapped memory foam pad. The H2100’s headband had a thin pad wrapped in faux leather.
The microphone is of the noise cancelling variety. In the manual, it suggests adjusting the microphone so that it is no more than 1 – 2 inches from your mouth. This microphone is called an “InfoMic” due to the fact that it has two LED lights that indicate EQ settings, Dolby, microphone mute status, and battery life.
The CUE is a very well thought out GUI and will be extremely beneficial with all of the RGB devices installed on your PC. With only the VOID Wireless gaming headset attached, you still have the ability to create profiles that individualize audio and lighting settings for different games and programs. If the opportunity is presented, a thorough review of the CUE will be provided with all three RGB peripherals active and working in unison.
