Corsair Updates Their Virtuoso Line With The RGB Wireless XT
Same Bright Sound, With A Less Shiny Cover
A few years back Sebastian took a listen to Corsair’s VIRTUOSO RGB and VIRTUOSO RGB SE wireless headsets, giving them a Gold Award for the quality of the sound, barring the virtual 7.1 feature which was not of the same high level of quality as the rest of the features. Corsair have updated the design of the SE model in the Virtuoso RGB Wireless XT, which Neoseeker recently reviewed.
The new Virtuoso RGB Wireless XT abandoned the shiny on the aluminium earcups for a more sedate, while retaining the overall build quality and comfortable memory foam pads. They also kept the SLIPSTREAM wireless connectivity which not only improves wireless performance but also allows you to connect to just about any device with Bluetooth compatibility. You can also connect to two different devices at the same time, using the USB-C and 3.5mm cables.
Corsair’s iCUE software has also been updated since that review, adding new RGB features as well as the newest evolution of Dolby Atmos surround sound. The other big change is the price, which has seen a hefty jump to $270 which may be an insurmountable hurdle for some.
On our review bench today is the new Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless XT, billed as the manufacturer's most ambitious audio product yet for gamers and audio enthusiasts. This headset features Corsair's SLIPSTREAM wireless technology, with 24bit/48kHz audio and Dolby Atmos support.
