Introduction and Specifications
We review Corsair’s new VOID gaming headset
Corsair has released a premium version of their VOID headset with the VOID PRO family, which includes wired and wireless option boasting major improvements to the previous designs.
“We made it better. Building upon the success of CORSAIR’s VOID series of headsets, VOID PRO features various significant enhancements across comfort, sound, mic quality and wireless performance designed to provide an even better gaming experience. VOID PRO resets the bar and delivers best-in-class performance.“
Surely, every major segment of the PC accessory market has reached saturation at this point, with the gaming headset market one of the most crowded. Companies need to offer more than just style and value to differentiate at the high end, with sound quality – including the microphone – now beginning to get some much-needed attention.
At times, aggressive styling and an apparent obsession with low bass seemed to dominate design choices, but a more balanced and accurate sound provides the kind of fidelity that can transform gaming and entertainment into a truly immersive experience. So, can Corsair match the improvements of such competitors as Logitech and provide a more premium sonic experience? We will find out!

In addition to the headset, wireless adapter, and a USB cable for charging, the package also includes a dock for the adapter which doubles as a phone stand, and a foam windscreen for the mic.
This is a more deluxe offering than most, with the dock a nice addition as it allows for better receiver placement in some desktop setups.
The VOID PRO RGB Wireless SE is offered with a 'yellow jacket' yellow and black color scheme, though a non-SE version will be available in a more subdued black/white finish.
The ear cups are distinctively angular, and the headset has a really solid feel to it. On the next page we'll take a closer look at this design.
