It’s available for just under a hundred pounds and its wireless. The surround sound, RGB lighting, unique ear pods make this one stand out for this price range.

Sennheiser GSP 670

This headset is very expensive one and it retails for $349. The Sennheiser claims that this has broadcasting microphone and also surround sound. This doesn’t have any RGB light but it doesn’t looks simple, they works more on build and design of this headset.

Design & Features

Corsair Void RGB Elite Wireless

You will get with the the headset in the box are the wireless USB dongle, a 2 meter USB to micro USB cable, phone windshield, and your quick start and warranty leaflets. The design looks almost identical to the previous versions. The cups retain this unique angular shape, it really helps them stand out from the average circles or oval that you see every day from every other headset.

They still have this glossy piano black finish over the main section which houses the RGB illuminated the Corsair ship logo, surrounding that is this matte white finish which is also available in black which they call carbon. The frame is mostly solid feeling plastic. Though it uses this be blasted aluminium where it counts out the hinges and it certainly does count towards the overall sturdiness and premium feel as a unit which seems like it’s built to last.

On the right cup is absolutely nothing and the left cup is where you’ll find the mute power switch on the face and underneath your micro USB, LED indicator, and multi-function control wheel. The multi-function dials brings up and down to adjust your volume and pushes in to scroll through your five selected presets and if you hold it in it cycles between Dolby Surround on and just stereo.

It’s easy to access and I didn’t find myself fiddling around looking for at any point. You can press and hold the mute button to enable or disable sight own, so that you can choose if you want to hear yourself through a microphone or not or just a short press to mute and unmute if you don’t want to use the raise to mute feature. A short press and hold of the power button will turn the headset on and off. You can also see the battery level when the light turns to red, yellow, or green on the RGB logo whereas a long press on hold will put you into pairing mode.

The range of the wireless seems pretty damn good. They say up to 16 hours battery life, now that’s casual use with the RGB off. You can charge while using, though you’re going to need to still have the wireless dongle plugged in. So, you’ll need two spare USB ports. These are also compatible with PlayStation 4 by plugging in that USB dongle but you’re not going to be able to adjust any of the settings through the software. The headset also doesn’t feature any other output, so if you wanted to use this for Nintendo switch, you’re not going to be able to.

In the IQ software, you’re going to be able to adjust and create your own EQ presets and you can drag those into any order. So, you can scroll through the top 5 presets without needing to come back into the software if you’re mid game or something. There’s also volume sliders for your mic and the side tone as well as the stereo and surround toggle. You can also adjust lighting effects for the RGB on the cups. You can even link it up with the rest of your Corsair controlled RGB enabled devices too if you want the whole setup to match perfectly with these lighting link presets. If you head into settings you can see the charge status of the battery and now you belong save the charge.

Sennheiser GSP 670

It’s got light gray material and then memory foam in there as well. So, in terms of connectivity, this does connect over Bluetooth, so this will connect to any Bluetooth device there would be a phone or computer or laptop. It does come with a dongle obviously for its own direct Bluetooth connection as well and it works with ps4 and PC.

It also has the charging cable which the length of this cable is also gonna double as a connection device or connection cable. There’s also another cable which is about five feet which is also going to double as your charging cable and your connection cable. It is a micro-USB, so it’s nothing proprietary. It’s got a very low profile dongle, so that you could use this on your laptops or computers.

You have a knob in the headset which is designed for your chat volume, so if you’re connected to PS4 there’s a separate chat volume from game volume. This works with console to turn the volume up and down, I don’t know if it works on a PC. The software shows you a bunch of different things including some of the profiles which you can switch. They claims that the battery life will go between 16 to 20 hours of active listening battery life.

Comfort

Corsair Void RGB Elite Wireless

It has breathable heavy weave fabric over the ear and head padding which itself is very comfortable and deformable to mould around your ears and head. The branding is quite minimal with just their small name printed on the left side of the headband. As it extends you can see some faint adjustment notches on the topmost section, I like how the extension is shrouded so you’re unlikely to get any hair core in at all.

The padding is among . the comfiest of used in a long time. It actually seems more cushion than the previous void headset and has more squish. This helps provide comfort for extremely long periods without noticing any clamping force at all. The fabric used are plenty breathable and not giving me any sweaty ears even after the length of my play sessions.

I have noticed there is a bit of a gap around the rear bottom of the cups though but it certainly helps with the ventilation. There’s a good adjustment in the headband, so this can be seen as a plus if you do have a larger head as it will extend insanely far and they will also swivel flat to fit comfortably around your neck. The foam on the top section is among the softest. I’ve used these for hours at a time and not had any discomfort at all.

Sennheiser GSP 670

It looks very big. You can’t wear this for the casual day out or something. The cups are a memory foam with a leatherette or pleather with kind of a suede portion which actually touches your ears. So, the ear fatigue on these, I think would be very minimal. I personally do not like cloth ear cups at all, it starts to get itchy to me. These are full surround, so they’re not actually touching the cartilage of the ears, they’re touching the side of the neck and the side of my head which is nice. In this, the ears can’t touch the actual driver cover itself which is also good.

The top headband is a dual headband which is very flexible. In terms of the hinge quality though, you’ve got multi articulating hinge and you’ve got a swivel and kind of a tilt. The double band is also extremely comfortable with kind of a sort of like a lycra type of material on it. The headband also has the adjustable clamping force which is also useful.

Microphone

Corsair Void RGB Elite Wireless

The microphone arm is a robbery plastic which is poseable to control just how it’s needed. It ends in the glassy section with an LED indicator at his collar which will shine red when muted, so it’s an easy visual cue as to when you can and can’t be heard.

The microphone has been updated to an omnidirectional design which picks up a bit more of the environment reflections from your voice. It’s certainly better than the previous versions but it’s still slightly compressed and makes you sound a little more nasally. But, on the plus side I’m not getting any major hit or crackle. I think it’s fairly decent for a headset mic on a headset under 100 pounds.

Sennheiser GSP 670

There’s a retractable microphone in this headset, so you can’t take away the microphone from the headset. When you put the microphone up it will be mute, when you put them down it will be ready to go.

The Sennheiser GSP670 almost sounds like a Logitech G930. So, this is genuine disappointment because it means that these will not become my daily driver microphone headset combo, now doesn’t sound that much different than my live stream did. The limitation appears to be quite honestly the wireless limitation. The audio on this sound amazing but the microphone not so much. The thing that’s disappointing is it’s basically advertises being broadcast quality. In the software, when it comes with default format our microphone is locked at 16-bit 16 kilohertz, so tape recorder quality.

 Sound Performance

Corsair Void RGB Elite Wireless

As for sound quality, those 50 millimeter custom tune drivers are plenty of kick to them to provide punchy audio and gaming. The directional audio from the Dolby 7.1 which definitely makes it sound like you’re in a larger room. However, if you’re trying to pinpoint footsteps I’d highly recommend trying out the FPS preset or plumb in a manual EQ setting with boosted highs as these seem to be slightly more bass heavy than previous models.

As far as music performance goes these are possible for casual listeners. It’s not amazing in detailed or delicate audio but it’s fine for most cases. This is not what you’re going to be looking for if you’re searching for musical performance headphones. So, it’s not a downside for me. Almost you’ll spend your time with these will be gaming where the audio does sound brilliant.

Sennheiser GSP 670

Basically, this is the headset powered volume on its own, these are powered drivers and if you take your system volume and you put this to 100% that means this will be allowed to go as loud as the system volume will allow. If you set this to 50% then max volume on the headset would be 50% on both the system and the headphone.

The bass on this headset is extremely full, it’s very rich. The problem with like non-isolating headphones like this headset is that if raise the volume the sound will be hear without wearing the headset. The first thing I noticed is without touching any of the settings in Sennheiser, the actual volume on these might seem a little low to some people. I think what they’re actually refer or kind of relying. I think what they’re kind of relying on this headphone is the sound isolation of these ear cups being so good, you don’t need to blast your ears with volume. You can get the isolation that you want with these without tuning out the environment and without even active noise canceling by simply having a properly designed ear cup.

The sound stage is very wide, the bass is very rich and the highest felt crisp. It’s extremely smooth, the base was certainly full and rich but not overpowering. The mids were clear, the highs were crisp without being sharp. The other thing is that you can listen to the standard sound profile on this and you can go in here and play around with the profile a little bit. The bass response is there, they sound cleaner for the music. It’s on wireless and it’s got the Sennheiser sound quality.

Conclusion

Corsair Void RGB Elite Wireless

I think they provide a great upgrade of the previous iterations in the void lineup. It looks stunning, they sound great for games or plenty of customisation and there’s a built brilliantly for the price. You wouldn’t be disappointed with these unless you are looking for a slightly better audio quality for music and a top-notch microphone.

Sennheiser GSP 670

They’re a little bit on the heavier side, this weighs 398 grams. For $350 it’s hard to justify this, if you want to use this for live-streaming or gaming but the microphone not sounds very better. In the Bluetooth it was exactly the same scenario with a lot more latency. You may find any other headsets with these qualities and also with the the good quality mic in this price range.
