Noise Cancellation

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

Love this headset! I have a newborn at home and these are perfect for work calls since I am working from home. it is noise cancelling enough and I love that the microphone mutes automatically when you lift it up so if i need to yell something out at home, no one on the call can hear. Would highly recommend

Fit

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/2)

Comfortable headset for larger head, falls off of smaller heads. The ear cuffs rotate so you can lay the headset flat on the table. The ear cuffs are comfortable and not hot. Decent quality audio and mic

Power Acoustik HP-902RFT

(1/4)

The plastic build feels cheaper, the headphones are less comfortable to wear, and the boosted upper mids and jagged highs caused hissing in some dialogue.Sony WH-L600: The WH-L600 is expensive, retailing at around $300 as of May 2021, but it was the only system we tested that has an HDMI input and supports surround sound. However, it has a creaky chassis and subpar controls. The volume buttons on the headphones themselves are difficult to feel, and it’s hard to tell what mode you have the headphones in

Sound Quality

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/2)

I am returning these and going for the Sennheiser set and hopefully the sound quality, setup and design will be better with those, even though the reviews are kind of terrible too. Also, they took forever to get here. I ordered them on the 9th and they got here on the 14th. Not as quick as advertised when buying

Power Acoustik HP-902RFT

(1/5)

Here are some recently tested models that may still be available.Avantree HT41899: This is a solid system, and it comes with two pairs of comfortable headphones and a small transmitter that is easy to set up. But it’s not cheap, retailing at around $170 at the time of our testing. While the HT41899 sounds pretty good for a Bluetooth system, we measured greater latency (35 ms), and our tests did show a big frequency drop in the upper lows

Price Point

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

These are not worth the price at all. I typically buy headphones that I can switch between gaming and recording audio on, and I can already tell that trying to record music with these is going to be useless. I am returning these and going for the Sennheiser set and hopefully the sound quality, setup and design will be better with those, even though the reviews are kind of terrible too. Also, they took forever to get here

It just isn’t worth the price tag.Nena FarrellUpdates WriterNena Farrell is an updates writer at Wirecutter covering audio/visual and smart-home gear.

Battery Life

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

This is the third Corsair product I've encountered issues with, either within a very short amount of time using or out of the box. The wireless function of the headset is nice and convenient, the headset is comfortable, and the audio quality is good AFTER installing iCUE and setting your preferences. The battery life is abysmal. My product had issues out of the box, where it will not charge beyond 78% regardless of how long it is charging, and the battery drains at what seems like a very quick pace (two hours and half that 78% charge is gone)

(1/2)

You might consider purchasing a rechargeable battery system. She tells me that she watches about 3 hours a day of TV with the headphones, and has to swap batteries (4-AAA's) about every 10-to-14 days. Besides the high power drain—and that happens even if you turn off the headphones after using them—she is really pleased with the sound quality, and can adjust the volume as she watches the TV. She's had this for a year, and is pleased

Durability

Corsair Void RGB Elite

(1/1)

I can unplug them in the morning and be absolutely certain they will get me through a full work day. If I forget to charge them at night, they will still be fine for at least a few hours the next morning. Their connectivity has been rock solid - never disconnected unless I disconnect them by walking too far away, and then reconnecting instantly. I also love the flip-up micr acting as a mute switch not visible to others on a Zoom call

Power Acoustik HP-902RFT

(1/2)

I purchased these for my elderly parents and the side panels popped off after less than 5 months of use. I contacted Power Acoustik for help/repair and they told me that anything purchased through Amazon is not under warranty (which is stated on their website, but non-obvious when you're buying it on Amazon). Amazon was nice enough to help me with a return after a bit of run around, but buyer beware - questionable quality and no help if it breaks. Aside from that, the sound is reasonably good and it eats through batteries very quickly
