Fit

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/2)

Personally the pleather doesn't bother me but comfort is subjective for the corsair XT since round earcups isn't everyone's cup of tea.

Yes, the Be Aware feature let's nose in from outside, but it also adds static, which is horrible. The EQ customization is not nearly as significant as other JLAB products I've purchased. The ear cups fit perfectly though, and the flex band w/ no cable is a big bonus compared to other headphone I've owned.

Sound Quality

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

What can i say, i love my full metal corsair products, the RGB is really cool how they have the ring around the mic! The audio is great when its in the wireless mode and its even better when you use the Aux cord. The pressure on my ears isn't a problem because of the soft foam inside The headset fits great tho its not the softest head padding Yeeeeeeee yeeee Over all i would say you cant go wrong here, a must buy! Edit: after using it for awhile i would it needs some softer head padding

(1/5)

First off these headphones sound well enough. There are definitely better sounding headphones and there are worse sounding headphones, but for working out they do the job. There is an ambient sound setting that allows outside sound to pass through so u can somewhat hear what is going on around you and it makes them sound much worse if you don't know it is turned on, but the setting is useful if you need to be able to hear a little bit like running where there are a lot of cars. In the exercise department they have worked well for me lifting, running, jump roping etc

Comfort

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

Wireless: The dongle provided is built strong and looks good. Functionally awesome too considering I can walk around my apartment without losing audio or mic connection. Comfort: Comfy but a bit too snug. The snugness does help with sound isolation though

I knew they were the ones for me. The comfort is outstanding, they sound really balanced,and the battery life is way beyond some more expensive brands.

Durability

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

The "Premium" version is worth it for the build and audio quality obtained considering it is wireless. Build: Quality build. Sturdy while looking really clean and cool. The RGB is a plus considering I already use Corsair's iCue software for my PC fans and keyboard

I had the item for just 2 months and only used them about 10 times. One day I went to the gym and when I put the headphones on the right earpiece fell off and a spring and screw flew out of them. I babied this device and did not abuse or drop them so I was surprised that the ear piece just came off like that. It became clear to me later that the screw that held them in needs to have some sore of thread sealer applied so that the screw does not come loose

Bluetooth Connectivity

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/2)

I'm writing this review on day 3 of owning, and these are the perfect well-rounded pair of wireless headphones. These replaced the Void Pro headset of mine and while I thought the Void Pros were top tier a year ago, the XT makes the Void lineup look like Skullcandy. The headset is nice and light, has an above average microphone, dual connection between dongle/bluetooth at the same time, and even a 3.5mm port for an external DAC

(1/3)

The built-in mic offers mediocre intelligibility. Using the Voice Memos app on an iPhone 6s, we could understand every word recorded, but the mic seemed to suffer waves of dropout and also have more fuzzy artifacts than is typical. We don't expect the mic's audio quality on Bluetooth headphones to be great, so this isn't a huge knock.

Battery Life

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

"Discord Certified" but causes issues with Discord keybinds unless Discord is set in administrative mode and/or compatibility mode. Then you have issues sharing media in chat, issues with Steam Overlay, and other issues compounding on top of that, (something you shouldn't have to deal with). With iCue closed and not running, some Corsair services remain active in the background which destroys battery life on multi GPU laptops, as the services prevent Windows from utilizing the "onboard" GPU. After disabling/removing the Corsair services my GPU auto switching was fixed

JLab estimates battery life to be roughly 20 hours, but your results will vary with your volume levels.

Price Point

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

I wanted something wireless to avoid extra wires without compromising quality of sound on the mic end and audio end. Below I breakdown pros and cons mostly from a wireless perspective. Price: After watching review after review of Yotubers comparing these to other headsets that are significantly more expensive, I had a feeling these would be worth it. And so far they are

In this general price range, consider the Plantronics BackBeat Go 810, the Marshall Mid Bluetooth, the less expensive Plantronics BackBeat Fit 500, or the in-ear JayBird X4. All of these models offer better audio performance, and some have higher IP ratings, making them better suited to exercise.

Price/value Ratio

Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB WIRELESS XT

(1/1)

Overall the build, the sound, they're decent but for the cost of these headphones one should expect great. however that's not the real problem. The big problem is the mic on/off is a button press (an oddly very cheap feeling button given the rest of the headset) so the way these things show you and the only way to know if the mic is on or off is a little color circle around the mouthpiece. standard Red for off and green for on except this just doesn't work, it might flip the colors or it might stay on only one color even if you've switched it on or off
