Today we will be taking a look at the latest gaming headset from Corsair, the VOID Hybrid, which is breaking the cross-compatibility bar by offering surround stereo audio for console/mobile devices and a Dolby 7.1 USB Adapter for PC users.
To start, we have seen Corsair storm the headset market with their latest chain of products in the VOID range that has turned a few heads so when we were sent the new VOID Hybrid, our eyes widened and we got to work right away. This is the first Corsair VOID headset I have reviewed, with Gavin Bonshor taking a look at the previous versions available in the series, so I look forward to what is on offer by Corsair in the audio side of things.
Offering a surround stereo option for those platforms using the available 3.5mm jack and a full Dolby 7.1 surround experience for PC/USB IO users, we have a nice diversion of potential in the audio market for just one headset. So, is it any good? Well, lets start off by taking a look at a general breakdown of the device before putting it through its paces in our review!
Details for the specification section of this review have come from the official Corsair VOID Hybrid product page and can be found here. We have adjusted them to make them a little more user-friendly compared to the original details provided by the Corsair website.
