Corsair has just announced that its Void Elite headset series has been updated. The full lineup features new 50 mm neodymium drivers with an extended 20Hz to 30kHz frequency range. Corsair also claims that the omnidirectional microphone of the series has been "completely redesigned" to improve voice clarity.
There are three models in the revised series. The $99.99 Void RGB Extreme Wireless is at the top of the lineup. It is the one wireless model in the series, with PC and PlayStation 4 support and a 40-foot range. Corsair states the battery should last on a single charge for about 16 hours, including both adjustable RGB lighting and 7.1 surround sound. There are two finishes for the Void Elite Wireless: coal and green. There's the $79.99 Void RGB Ultra USB if you want to save a bit of money and don't want a wired connection. Minus a USB connection, it's similar to the mobile version— but it's only compatible with a Mac.
There's the Void Legendary Surround, last but not least. This headset is compatible with consoles with a 3.5 mm headphone jack. With the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, you can use the Surround as well as the Console. The kit provides a USB connector allowing you to get digital 7.1 audio when using a computer's headset. The Surround is the only one of the three models of Void Elite that does not include RBG lighting. It's no less expensive than the USB version at $79.99 as well. It has its own cherry color available, as well as the two other models ' carbon paint.
Corsair's more compact HS headphone collection has also been refreshed. Like the three previous Void Elite series, new 50 mm drivers and modified microphones are included in the revised HS headsets. On the ear cups, Corsair has added additional memory foam padding— which should help in a more comfortable fit. The HS series is split just as the Void Elite team is divided. The king of the list is the mobile $99.99 HS70 Pro. It's a 2.4GHz wireless headset with 16 hours battery life, 40 foot range, and 7.1 surround sound like its Void Elite equivalent. It comes in two colors— cream and carbon — and is both PC and PS4 compatible.
Then there's the surrounding HS60 Pro. While normally costing $69.99, Corsair has discounted it to $49.99 at the moment. It has a braided cord headphone jack of 3.5 mm and provides a USB converter inside the PC package for 7.1 audio. The $49.99 HS50 Pro is at the lowest price.
This comes with a headphone jack of just 3.5 mm. Corsair also has a new HS45 Surround headset if that's not enough options. It costs $49.99, like the HS50 Pro, but comes with a virtual surround sound amplifier on a Mac. That being said, it has less quality construction than its counterparts in the Pro. While we are not currently able to speak to these headphones, we liked the HS70 enough to include it in our holiday gift guide for 2018.
