Corsair Gaming VOID Wireless RGB Gaming Headset - Carbon

1 out of 5 eggs One word: Janky 02/19/2016

This review is from: Corsair Gaming VOID Wireless RGB Gaming Headset - Carbon

Pros: - I like the looks. Not too over the top like many headsets tend to be.

Cons: - The software (Corsair Utility Engine) to interface with the headset is definitely low-caliber. I'm a software engineer, and I must say that CUE is very confusing to navigate.
- There were direct inconsistencies with what the manual/CUE software said the lights would do and what they actually would do. I wanted my lights to be off, but that simply didn't work. I chose to set it to a static color, and that would sometimes work.
- Having the headset plugged in via USB and registering on CUE, firmware updates simply failed for no reason whatsoever.
- The headset would simply not charge through the USB cable sometimes. No reason.
- Took me a while to dig through the manual to find the one small line where they described how to put the headset in pairing mode. One must hold the power button for 10 seconds, but this can't be done while the headset is one. You must first turn off the headset and then begin to hold down the button.

Like I said, the entire experience is just completely janky. Absolutely janky. For $130, you've got to be kidding me. Absolutely not worth it. It felt as if two teams, (one hardware, one software) of interns developed this over the summer for Corsair, and after a brief QA cycle they pushed it to production.

My comments are not a result of a defective headset, to be clear. All of these individual things seem to be flaws in either the software or the hardware design, but clearly originating from bad design.

Other Thoughts: - I would not recommend this product to others
- I would not purchase this product again
