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.

If you're limited to this level of spending, you might try the 'chifi' market, like a CCA C10 or go for something like the Sennheiser IE 4 instead, which is surprisingly good but bass heavy. I wouldn't recommend these, the fit was painful, the accessories were OK, the isolation wasn't special and the sound was pretty poor - sort of that old-gen dynamic sound pushed to its limits - dark, bass heavy, and muddy in the mids.

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

The foam comfortably expands inside my canal and creates an excellent sound barrier (isolation) from outside noises. From my experience, it's near impossible for them to just "fall out". Anyway, if you want a great set of sound isolation headphones, this is a great buy.

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

Owned for 6 months and the left ear bud stopped working. Only ever used at my computer and interchanged with 12 other headphones and ear buds that I own.

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

I'm a pro audio guy thats tried probably 30 IEM's/Chifi headphones over the last few months. I didn't test these critically so I'm not sure if they best the cheap market there, however, in terms of fit and sound they are not worth the money.

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
