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.

Razer Barracuda X

(1/3)

The headset is basic and black, similar to the Blackshark V2 in design, but with flat earcups instead of rounded ones. Every outside surface is matte black plastic, except the earpads and headband padding that are fabric- and faux-leather-wrapped, respectively. Although the padding isn’t particularly thick, the headset offers a comfortable fit thanks to its light, 8.8-ounce frame

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

Razer Barracuda X

(1/5)

The Barracuda X can capably handle music, and offer reasonably strong bass. The deep synth notes and kick drum hits in our bass test track, The Knife’s “Silent Shout,” come through with a good amount of low frequency power, and don’t distort even at maximum volume. They don’t quite reach head-rattling levels, but they come close.

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

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 prefer ear pads that are cloth and not leather. Because generally, I find leather headsets to get hot really quick

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

Razer Barracuda X

(1/1)

So I tried this on 3 different computers, ones brand new and I could not get the device to show up in the sound settings at all, just wont show up, but the headphones makes the noise that they have connected to the dongle yet, no way to switch it over to it in the sound settings, tried updating drivers and trying it on 3 seperate computers, from oldest to newest thinking maybe it was a driver problem but nope, its weird that they connect but yet the PC wont see them at all. If someone else had this issue and found a fix let me know! UPDATE ordered a replacement and even that one didn't work, accept the replacement didnt even connect to the dongle. Horrible product.

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

The battery life seems great so far, too. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a lighter headset that isn’t too expensive!

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

Razer Barracuda X

(1/1)

If you want to use the microphone with Switch, you need to use the 3.5mm cable and use the headset wired. The cable is extremely short and only useful in handheld mode. For the price, this is not worth it! I returned this headset and bought the Kraken wired headset and a 3
