Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless SE Headset Review

The lighting is up to the usual standards of flexibility we've come to expect from Corsair. It would be cool if we could split the ear cup lighting into different colours, particularly useful if you're a clan or gaming team, and we'd like to be able to change the light on the end of the mic rather than just toggle it on or off. We understand that such things can be difficult as you need different colours for muted and not. It's a minor thing.

The Virtuoso has five built in equaliser presets as well as the ability to create your own. You can attach the sliders to each other for a smooth profile or have them individually controlled if you're particularly susceptible to certain frequencies annoying you.

Concentrating upon the logo just below the volume sliders on the right there is a stereo/7.1 surround toggle. Unfortunately this also comes with a woman loudly telling you what you've just done, so make sure you pop into the settings and disable her at the first opportunity. We missed it the first time around as the Settings sub-menu usually applies to the iCUE software rather than each Corsair item itself, perhaps the adjustment can be made more obvious as part of the left hand main screen. Tiny thing we know, but if we missed it first time around so might others.

Might have to pick these up. One of my biggest issues is the lack of detachable mics with some good headsets.

Corsair Void, was trash. The Void pro, just as bad. I tried Plantronics e500s which had nice sound but terrible mic. Currently I am impressed (given its cost) with the Plantronics 800LX which has been my go to headset till now, since it really does step it up and a decent price.

That said, its good but not spectacular. I want something that can amaze me without breaking my bank. I just hope that these aren't astronomical. Wasn't able to watch the video at the office so not sure if price has been mentioned here.Quote

So the only real difference is the mic and RGB, how does the mic on the cheaper set compare to the $40 more mic?Quote

On a serious note I have been looking at getting some new wireless cans, Really only use my Beyer 770's for everything but the wire is annoying as I often forget I have them on and walk away nearly yomping off my head Quote
