Introduction



The Corsair Void Pro RGB Wireless is a successor to the Void RGB Wireless, minus the "Pro", which I owned and liked - but not loved - from the moment it was released back in 2015. It offered very good sound quality and was comfortable to wear, but its microphone was - to put it mildly - underwhelming. It was too quiet for my taste (boosting it would cause distortions), and its built-in LED system that was supposed to inform me about various events was distracting rather than truly useful. Corsair was obviously well aware of these issues too. When they contacted us regarding their new gaming headset lineup, simply dubbed the Void Pro, the first bullet point of their presentation read "Totally reworked microphone". Awesome!



They also retuned the built-in 50-millimeter dynamic audio drivers and redid the ear cushions by equipping them with an even softer memory foam while keeping the much-liked microfiber as the material the memory foam is covered with. As for sound retuning, while Corsair initially offered no additional info, I kept my fingers crossed, hoping they made the bass a tad more present and punchier and left everything else just the way it was on the original Void RGB Wireless. Most of the other features and the design weren't changed much, if at all. In other words, we're still dealing with a closed-back wireless gaming headset that supports Dolby Headphone 7.1 surround sound, promises up to 16 hours of battery life, uses a standard 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi USB dongle to communicate with the PC, and adds a bit of RGB bling to your surroundings, which can easily be turned off - to ease the minds of those who hate the very idea of a glowing headset.


The price of the Void Pro RGB Wireless is exactly the same as for its predecessor - $100. In fact, the entire new Void Pro lineup directly replaces the current Voids in terms of MSRP. For $80, you can get either the Void Pro Surround or Void Pro RGB USB. Both are wired, but the Void Pro Surround uses a standard 3.5-mm audio input and output and sports no RGB capability because of that, while the Void Pro RGB USB comes with a USB sound card and the same RGB lighting system as the one I'll describe in this review. Then, we have the aforementioned $100 Void Pro RBG Wireless, which will be this review's focus. The most expensive new headset from Corsair is the Void Pro RGB Wireless SE. It costs $130 and comes in a distinctive "Corsair-yellow" color. The Void Pro RGB Wireless and Void Pro RGB USB are available in black and white, and the Void Pro Surround can be had in either black or cherry (black with red accents).

While I do plan to review the entire Void Pro lineup, I decided to start with the Void Pro RGB Wireless for two simple reasons - I've been actively using its predecessor for the past two years, and it sits between two awesome wireless headsets I've reviewed recently price-wise - the Turtle Beach Stealth 450 and SteelSeries Arctis 7. Let's see how it holds up!
