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.

This headset will hurt your ears and head after a few hours of use This headset mic is not noise canceling, it in-fact picks up the sound from the headset speakers itself! So, you get reverb through voip which makes it a requirement to use push to talk. For almost $60 and a brand name you would expect some better padding on the ears, would fix the issue of noise going to mic as well. Overall this headset fails in comfort and functionality with a premium price.

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

Doesn't necessarily blow me away, but my friends have complained that this microphone very noticeably degrades the quality of my voice. It also will pick up sound from the headset if you have the volume up too loud - a problem I did not have with other headsets.

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

Thirdly, I tried the HyperX Cloud Flight for Xbox One wireless. This headset was probably the best one so far. Very sleek comfortable design and better options. On-headset slider for master volume, and some weird buttons for the chat balance

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

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

(1/1)

They connect directly to your Xbox so no USB dongle or anything to plug in. They have bluetooth capability so you can connect to your phone, an option for sound cancelling, and surround sound. A built in slider for game/chat mix and a separate dial for master volume. They have been great as my daily driver, but recently the left headpiece fell off when I dropped it, so I've been shopping around

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

These headphones are great for the price! Super clear and the audio is crispy and great for gaming with my friends. The audio quality is great and i even use it for calls. For gaming, the audio qualilty helps me locate where other players are.

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
