CORSAIR HEADSETS FOR WORK AND PLAY

By Chris Stolze, on April 24, 2020

Headsets enable communication across multiple platforms and applications in an increasingly connected world. To make it easy to navigate the sea of audio products, we’ve put together a cheat sheet outlining some key features of each headset family with notes on connectivity and compatibility so you can choose the right headset for your home office or gaming setup!

HS and HS PRO

Our HS and HS PRO headsets may be our entry level, but the HS family packs a punch where it counts in terms of basic features. Our entire HS lineup is equipped with 50mm drivers that have been tuned for quality as well as a highly capable unidirectional microphone that helps to isolate your voice from unwanted background noise. Best of all, the entire lineup (with the exception of the wireless HS70 PRO) features a standard 3.5mm headphone jack that you can simply plug into your console’s controller or audio combo jack on your Mac/PC!

VOID ELITE

The VOID family is by far our most popular, with a unique look, high comfort and omnidirectional microphone for improved quality. To sweeten the deal, the VOID ELITE lineup has additional creature comforts like rotatable earcups and large onboard buttons for easy access! The USB and wireless models up the ante even further with an upgraded rear control toggle for volume (over a standard volume wheel) and quickly changing EQ settings as well as a smart mute feature which disables the mic when in the up position. All of these great features come together to make navigating your next online match or conference call a breeze.

VIRTUOSO

The VIRTUOSO RGB and VIRTUOSO RGB SE are our top of the line headsets with multiple connectivity options available no matter which version you pick. You can connect directly to your Mac/PC over USB, analog 3.5mm or wirelessly with the included SLIPSTREAM wireless USB dongle! If you’re concerned about how your voice sounds, the broadcast-grade omnidirectional microphone on both the standard and SE models as well as our exclusive SLIPSTREAM wireless technology make sure that you can hear and be heard with better audio quality than ever, all without wires! And if you do opt to use a wire, both the VIRTUOSO RGB and VIRTUOSO RGB SE offer crystal clear 24-bit 96kHz playback over USB on your PC!

If you’ve got a headset and find yourself setting it on your desk or hanging it on your monitor when you’re done for the day, our ST100 RGB is a sturdy RGB headset stand that doesn’t just add a splash of color to your space and give your headset a proper place to stay, it also packs an integrated USB hub for wireless receivers as well as a built-in audio combo jack that enables features like sidetone monitoring and simple, customizable EQ settings through our iCUE Software!
