Breath-taking, sleek, and futuristic looking. These headsets are striking in appearance due to their sleek lines. It has RGB lighting on each earpiece as well as a strip of RGB lighting on the microphone itself to add some colour if you so wish.
The RGB does deplete your battery quicker though so it is your choice if you wish to risk keep the lighting on for long periods.
The earpieces have freedom of movement and the squared off shape is beautiful to behold.
The accompanying USB is yellow and black like the box and reminds one of Bumble Bee from Transformers with its futuristic shape.
The finish on this headset is matt black and the microphone is a flip type and non adjustable.
It really is beautiful and if you aren’t too fond of black they come in white as well. Although you can customize the RGB to your liking so that’s a plus.
I found these headsets to fit perfectly over my ears and head very comfortably. I have seen some negative reviews where people have complained about the fit saying that they sit loosely, but I did not personally have this issue and found them to fit snugly. I have a lot of piercings which usually get in the way with conventional headsets and start to get uncomfortable but I wore these for hours and felt just as comfortable as when I put them on.
The headband sits comfortably over your head and has a cushion to provide a soft fit. The headband is adjustable to your specifications so you can adjust it for comfort.
The ear cups are super soft and made of a mesh and memory foam that sits flush with your ears.
The breathable mesh material allows for airflow and therefore will last a lot longer before they overheat.
The first thing I noticed when I picked these headsets up is that they have some weight to them. On further inspection, you can see that the headband metal on the inside which reinforces the plastic outer cover for durability.
The matt finish allows for a more scratch resistant product. This product will definitely last you a long time. These headsets were not made with cheap materials and by just handling them you can feel the quality workmanship. Even the moving parts are manufactured with high quality materials and won’t wear quickly.
User Friendly & Functionality:
The drivers for the VOID Elite aren’t supplied with the product but they are easily downloaded from the website. When that is done it is simply plug and play, then you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful sounds.
The boom mic is operated with a simple flick up and down, which turns the mic on or off. Up for off and Down for On, which is so convenient when you are having a conversation or in a match and your kids are being their usual loud self.
MGR Gaming’s Conclusions:
An absolute pleasure to unbox. The Corsair VOID Elite headsets really are a treat to use. They are comfortable and stylish and will give you hours of gaming pleasure if that’s what you are using them for. If your application is more work orientated they will not let you down here either. The speakers are crystal clear and the person on the other end of the conversation will hear you clear and concise.
This is one great quality product and I did not experience any issues using them. There are others out there for a better price but the VOID Elite really is a good product and you won’t regret your purchase.
They are beautiful to look at, comfortable to wear, and easy to use with some awesome features like the 7.1 surround sound function if you are using them with a PC.
