The Corsair Void Stereo Gaming Headset can be picked up from Overclockers UK for just £59.99 while readers in the US can find it at Amazon for $69.99. This puts it against some stiff competition from HyperX, Creative and Roccat to name but a few, but it’s certainly priced about right given the performance and quality.
Is this the best sounding headset for this kind of money? Not really, there’s a few out there that I could argue sound a little better, such as the original Cloud headset from Kingston, perhaps even the Roccat Kave XTD, but there’s really not much in it, as this is still a great gaming headset in terms of audio performance. I wouldn’t go out and buy this headset for dedicated music or movie viewing, but when it comes to gaming, the drivers have enough grunt to satisfy, but it’s the microphone that is the star of the show. The noise canceling tech works perfectly, great for gaming in a noisy LAN gaming environment and it gives crystal clear chat that’s perfect for gaming, Skype, phone calls, etc.
The killer feature for me, however, is the sheer level of build quality on offer. The more expensive USB 7.1 version of this headset is now one of my all time favourite headsets, but this cheaper stereo headset doesn’t cut away any of the quality of its bigger brother. The headband and ear cup padding is luxurious, giving a super comfortable fit, which combined with the lightweight design makes it easy to forget you’re wearing the headset, even after long hours of gaming. The overall finish and build quality is perfect, certainly worth paying for in my opinion, as you know it’ll last.
Having the functionality to use this on mobile devices, as well as desk is a nice bonus, especially if you game on a mobile device when you’re away from your desk. I had them plugged into my Nvidia Shield Tablet and they were perfect for using Skype and playing games on that. The included Y adaptor is easy enough to use too, allowing you relatively effortless switching from one device to another.
