Corsair Void 7.1 RGB Headset Review

The Void 7.1 RGB Wireless is resplendent in its Corsair Gaming box. The yellow certainly catches the eye and the minimalist approach to the front gives an air of quality to proceedings. The obverse tells you all of the key features of the Void, so you know what you're getting. Although that's what we are here for.
Inside the box we have the manual and guarantee alongside a charging cable - micro USB - and the wireless connector. As well as the Void headset itself of course. The void has more padding than almost any other headset we can think of. The ears and the headband are extremely cushioned.
One of the biggest flaws with any headset is always the hinges. In a world where the balance between lightness and rigidity is the most important, and difficult, balancing acts Corsair have gone in a different direction to the herd. Rather than hang the ear pieces off of a hinge that is attached to some height adjustment, the Void combines these elements into one sturdy fitting that should last significantly longer than the average headset. The flexibility, and thus comfort, of the Void isn't compromised though, as there is enough lateral movement to fit even the most misshapen headed user.
The left earpiece is where all the business gets done. There is the charging hole next to a volume toggle. Rather than spin forever this just adjusts up or down and you hold it until you're at the volume you desire. Above that are the on/off and mute buttons which can be programmed as we'll see on the next page. The microphone sits here too, but isn't removable for those of you who prefer one that is.
