Yes and no.
 

I hated the Virtuoso but love the Voids.

 

Plenty of good ranking lists out there, Corsair never come top in the main categories...

 

i5 8600 - RX580 - Fractal Nano S - 1080p 144Hz

What is your budget? To answer your question tho. No, they simply aren't. The build might be nice. But the comfort and sound is so f'ing bad compared to good headphones with a seperate mic or for example cooler master MH/52 since they are studio monitors reskinned with a good mic on it.

PM or DM me if you have any questions about audio or about your PC.

My PC specs & audio gear

CPU > Intel core i7 9700k, GPU > RTX 2070 8gb, RAM > Corsair Vengance 2x8gb 3000mhz, Motherboard > Z390 Gigabyte Aorus Pro Wifi, Storage > 1TB HDD & 2pcs of 500gb M2 SSDs, Cooling > H100I Corsair Platinum, PSU > Corsair RM750X V2

🎧Current Audio Setup For Gaming/Music🎧

Philips Fidelio X2HR as daily driver

Soundblaster AE-9 Soundcard

The T.bone SC400 XLR mic

Other peripherals

Keyboard > Razer Chroma v2 Orange Switches

Mouse > Cooler Master MM711, had a G502 HERO but was too heavy for my liking.

VR > Valve index kit

Why spend thousands on peripherals and your PC and forget one of the most important things... Audio.

Read this post if you want a "gaming" headset ;)

I had the corsair void pro wired and when I got my sennheiser gsp300 I though that the void pro sounded really really bad ... lack of detail, muddy ... it's hard to describe ... it's like listening to something behind a wall ... like you hear stuff but not really ... the gsp300 are way superior to the corsair void pro ... my gf got the jbl quantum 100 and I can say that they are also far superior to the void pro ... but not the gsp300.

 

the corsair virtuose are the only corsair I head good things about in reviews ... but those might have been biased tho and I've never listened to them so that's about all I can say about those.

Z reviews reviewed the Virtuoso. He loved the build quality. Absutely hated the sound.

Z isn't always correct but I trust him enough when asessign a gaming headset to say whether it's good or not.

Feel free to send me a DM for further or general questions.

Lyrics I vibe with or just funny right now:

"This is food for thought, better take the whole plate

Don't lie, some of y'all thought food for thought meant taking these hoes on a date"-Injury Reserve

"Some of em just need to eat a whole thing of Crest"-MF DOOM

"Is it me bruh? (Is it me bruh?)
Am I a bruh? (Am I a bruh?)
Am I that bruh? (ouu)
Eating cactus (peyote)
I looked in the mirror (ya ya)
I like what i saw (that's a handsome boy)
Cuz I saw myself (hey)
And i was the bruh (the bruh)
I am not LeBron (LeBron)
But I am the bruh (the bruh)
I have seen the bruh (the bruh)
I have reached the bruh (the bro)
Why am I a thing? (ayy)
Why do things exist? (why)
All I am is bruh
Bruh is all there's left"-Hovey benjamin

nah if you like strong bass then maybe I like them vs stock t50 rp but I would look into a t60rp if I wanted a good alternative to the argon
