The new VOID Surround from Corsair sits between the Void Stereo and Void USB in price, but has some features which might make it more appealing to a wider crowd. It ships with both a four-pole 3.5-mm jack for mobile devices, consoles and PCs as well as a Dolby Headphone USB adapter for which supports Dolby 7.1 virtual surround. The mute button and volume wheel are on the left side of the headset as opposed to being on the cord which is a handy design, although it does make confirming you are muted a bit difficult. The Tech Report tried it out and found it usable, albeit they were not overly fond of the microphone or the virtual Dolby 7.1 implementation. Check out the full review before you decide if you like this headset or not.
"Corsair's Void Surround headset promises universal device compatibility and surround-sound immersion, thanks to an included Dolby 7.1 USB dongle that works with Corsair's CUE software to do its thing. We put the Surround to the test with games and music to see whether it offers a more immersive experience than the average stereo headset."
