Gaming headsets review: Head, set, go!

12 gaming headsets put to the test

By


Corsair Gaming Void Pro

The Void Pro resembles the earlier models in Corsair's famous Void line, but according to the manufacturer everything is different apart from its appearance. The microphone has been redesigned, the drivers have been re-tuned and the ear cushion's material has been modified. The characteristic shape has not been changed, with metal shells for the drivers and a very sturdy headband. Moreover, it still fits just as good: nice and loose on the head. It does not squeeze your head, but at the same time the headphones stay in place if you shake your head very quickly (at least in the case of the - not very small - head of the writer of this article).

The Void Pro is a straightforward gaming headset, so no separate plugs for portable use. What is included in the package is a sound card. After installation of the CUE software, this creates convincing 3D effects in games; Corsair is still a pioneer in this area. Despite the Pro label, the price is quite good once again: it's available for less than 110 dollars. The cord is simply made of sturdy plastic and therefore not covered with fabric, but it remains to be seen who would actually mind this. In addition, the microphone mute function and volume control on the left ear cup are handy.

Corsair Gaming Void Pro Surround Red

Corsair offers a pleasant experience and feeling, but the sound quality seems to have been somewhat neglected. The lows are very good, but for music we miss the details in the highs and also the middles are somewhat underexposed. Looking at the measurements (below you will find the graphs of both the analog connection and the supplied USB adapter - these last results are those in the graphs and next to the product) it turns out that the Void Pro has a relatively high harmonic distortion for the middles and highs, and therefore the audio in general sounds a little less clear and tight than desirable. The Void Pro is therefore not recommended for music, but for games the verdict is that the surround reproduction remains a major advantage of this model.
