This review is from: Corsair Gaming VOID Wireless RGB Gaming Headset - Carbon
Pros: These headphones are really solid, feels like they're made of metal and sturdy plastic, versus flimsier or lighter materials. Sound quality is good, and as long as you stay well within range you shouldn't experience much in the way of problems. Got these to replace a Logitech G930 headset that'd been RMA'd three times over because they kept failing structurally in the exact same manner, and I'm not expecting that to happen with these in anywhere near the same amount of time.
The volume control is pretty slick, too, being two way switch and a button all in the same control.
Surround sound capability is on par with other headsets that tote the same sort of feature, which is good.
Cons: If you wind up going out of range and the headphones are disconnected, presently the audio stops entirely, and the drivers cause the audio device to be completely removed from your computer, which causes applications to stop outputting audio entirely or outright crash (depending on the program). To fix this, I must unplug and replug the USB transmitter, but this will occasionally (I'd say about 5% of the time) cause my computer to BSOD. On contacting Corsair support they mentioned a fix is being worked on but really this isn't the kind of thing that ought happen in the first place. Not to say I can't wait for a fix, but I'd gotten a wireless headset for the purpose of not always being at my computer, and if it's going to cease functioning, that really impacts their usability. This problem can also be prevented by turning the headphones off before moving too far, as well, but it's admittedly hard to do if something urgent comes up.
Additionally the control software for the headphones doesn't always seem to save settings (changing the color took several attempts to get working).
Other Thoughts: As mentioned above, I was looking to replace a set of Logitech G930s, and this doesn't have macro buttons, which would have made this headset so much better to use.
Colors are quite customizeable, which is fancy if that's really important to you.
With the limited amount of headsets out there with these kinds of features, you're always losing something, it seems, since I've yet to find one that really fits all my own needs needs, I feel it's all up to what the most important features are to each individual.
Pros: Ran games well for a while, was a decent mid-high end card when I got it.
Cons: After almost 10 months of flawless performance, it repeatedly caused my computer to fail after running anything graphically intensive for more than a few minutes.
Other Thoughts: I suppose I was slightly luckier than some of the other people here whom have had the same issue with failures after a while. It's not an overheating problem, and the issue no longer crops up with a new graphics card, so it must just be something faulty on this card.READ FULL REVIEW
