Thick memory foam is used in the ear pads along with a velour material on the surface which feels great on the skin. These pads are also removable and washable, making them easy to maintain. The headband also features padding with a reasonable thickness so the top of a user's head will not feel painful when wearing these. See More
Explosions can sound really good with the G933 as the bass is quite powerful. You'll be able to experience a lot of rumble and punch from the lower frequencies. Also, the upper mids and the highs are quite boosted. This gives a nice thickness and warmth to the sound. Voices from game dialogue can be clearly heard, while audio details are clear and also easy to distinguish. See More
The G933 is quite sturdy and has a rugged exterior, but offers good comfort for users. Build quality is also excellent, with a combination of high quality plastic and metal being used in the headset's construction. Also, the it does not have a lot of creaks or unnecessary flex. See More
This headset has adjustable lighting, so you can choose a RGB-color in the software suite of the headset. You can also adjust the equalizer, surround sound settings, and you can allocate shortcuts and macro's to programmable buttons on the left ear cup. See More
Keeping the RGB lighting on while using the headset can substantially drop battery life. There can be a reduction of anywhere from 3 to 6 hours of playback time, depending on the brightness of the lights and lighting effects used. If optimal battery duration is important, then consider turning off the lights when using the headset. See More
The ear pads do not fit some users well as they either sit on top of or feel too tight around the ears. While cushioning is ample, the angular and narrow opening of the ear cups/pads may not be suited for those with larger ears. See More
The ear pads and headband feature thick cushioning which helps to minimize pressure on the ears and sides of the head. The pads are covered with a mesh material which allows for some airflow around the ears, and somehow helps to minimize heat build-up. See More
The Virtual 7.1 Dolby Surround implemented in the Corsair VOID Wireless doesn't always work well and mostly depends on the game or media you're playing. It can prove to be a huge advantage, while sometimes it's actually preferable to use the standard stereo setting. Tweaking via the included software is recommended, which can be annoying. See More
Comfort is subjective and might vary from person to person, but the general consensus definitely is mixed. However, with the VOID weighing in at a little above 350 grams - that might be too heavy for some users and puts too much pressure on your ears. See More
Through Corsair's CUE software, users can choose from a wide range of color combinations for the lights on the left and right ear cups. Different lighting patterns can also be selected, and can be set to match with other RGB equipped computers and gaming peripherals. See More
Corsair includes its CUE software (Corsair Utility Engine) to tweak the sounds of the VOID to your liking. The options are quite extensive and allow you to adjust the equalizer settings for different profiles. The CUE software also allows you to adjust the color of the RGB LED's in both ear cups. See More
The mic is quite large and while it can be bent further away from the face, its bulk means that it is still quite visible and can hit your head should you remove or put on the headset. Also, the mic can only swing up and is not removable or retractable, adding to the size of the headset. See More
The GAME ONE has excellent sound quality and offers good balance between the different sound frequencies. The bass is tight and punchy instead of the overpowering and bloated low-end that most gaming headsets have. Mids have good presence and fullness, so game dialogue should be easily heard. The highs are crisp and airy so a lot of detail can be enjoyed from games, yet the headset is not fatiguing to listen to, even with long gaming sessions. See More
The headset offers a fantastic sound reproduction that is only rivaled by substantially higher-priced headsets. The Cloud II also offers a great balance between all the different tones and is widely regarded as one of the best all-round gaming headsets on the market. The Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound is also reproduced very well. See More
The cable of the HyperX II is split up in two parts. The headset itself has a 43 inch (110 cm) cable, which can be a little bit on the short side depending on where your audio-ports are located. If you use the full length of the headset with a USB-port, the full length equals to around 10 feet (305 cm). See More
The Tiamat 7.1 is mostly praised for it's superior sound quality, especially in gaming situations. The real surround experience is also noticeable and is an improvement when comparing this 7.1 surround solution with 10 different speakers to other headsets with only virtual headphones. See More
While the Tiamat 7.1 is generally praised for its sound quality, it requires a rather expensive 7.1-capable sound card in order to reproduce the best possible sound quality due to the use of multiple 3.5 mm analog jacks. Sound quality is reported to be lackluster on average or integrated soundcards and is also limited to the usual stereo with two channels. See More
