Cor­sair Void Pro RGB Wire­less head­set

Sur­pris­ing

PCPOWERPLAY - - Tech -

When you first pull it out of the box, the Void Pro head­set feels pretty heavy, and the padding on the head­band seems en­tirely in­ad­e­quate for the job of mak­ing the head­set sit com­fort­ably on your head. You couldn’t be more wrong. The fit of the Void Pro is ex­cel­lent, with the weight dis­trib­uted com­fort­ably across the front of the head and the well-padded earcups sit­ting flush over your ears. Each of the earcups hosts a big, clear 50mm neodymium driver ca­pa­ble of pump­ing out some se­ri­ous vol­ume with ex­cel­lent clar­ity in stereo. The Void Pro also boasts Dolby Head­phone 7.1, and the re­sults are pleas­antly sur­pris­ing. The head­set of­fers some good spa­tial sound with iden­ti­fi­able di­rec­tion­al­ity. The qual­ity of sound is im­pacted a lit­tle by the switch to 7.1, with the bass and tre­ble not be­ing quite as de­fined as they are in stereo, but other than that it’s some pretty im­pres­sive vir­tual 7.1.

Wire­less con­nec­tion is a breeze, with the head­set au­to­mat­i­cally con­nect­ing to the don­gle when you press the power but­ton. Two but­tons and a click­able tog­gle on the left earcup con­trol power, mic mut­ing, vol­ume, EQ pre­sets and switch­ing vir­tual 7.1 on and off. For the most part the con­trols work quite well, but the fact that the tog­gle must be clicked in for up to .5 sec­onds to switch EQ and .6 sec­onds or more for 7.1 can lead to some prob­lems. The fit, while com­fort­able, doesn’t of­fer a good clamp, so there is quite a fair bit of sound leak­age. DANIEL WILKS
