I own the wireless version of the Corsair Void RGB, which I purchased to replace a Sennheiser Game Zero and Game One, that purchased, used and returned due to horrendous sound quality (after trying them with two different DACs).
The Corsair Void, I was very surprised to say, absolutely trumps the sound quality of what is a $250 pair of Sennheiser headphones, from what used to be premium manufacturer. Imo, the Void is worth the money. Also, a friend has the wired version, I could not detect a difference between the two versions in terms of sound quality. Don't worry too much about the simulated surround and just stick to stereo, for the money you will not be disappointed if you are only looking for stereo and gaming usage.
Massdrop, please sort out whether this is the wired version, as the description is taken from the wireless version of the Corsair Void.
I am suprised you got two different g4me headphones and thought the void sounded better. I have the Corsair H2100 and every review that I read said they thought the Void was a step down in quality and sound, than their previous h2100. I do have the massdrop version of the G4me one and I think the sound and mic quality is better than my h2100. It also has a larger sound stage than my closed back h2100. I am using onboard sound but my Gaming 7 has a good dac and great caps.
I tried both because the Zero is a closed design and I thought the bad audio quality may have been due to it being a closed can design (although I thought this was strange, because I have tried other closed can designs and the sound did not sound so occluded). I found the Game One was very similar, in fact with very little difference in sound reproduction between them - it may be possible that I had a bad batch, but I find that unusual for two headsets in a row. I tried them both on the Sennheiser GSX1000 mixamp and an Objective2 DAC. There was no improvement in the sound quality, which I would liken to listening through a very thin bit of dry wall. It was terrible.
I was very surprised at the Corsair because they are solely a USB interface, which I had long ago turned off, they are a complete step up in sound AND mic quality. Before this, I came off an Astro A40 which was otherwise fine for sound reproduction but the mic had the issue on that of continually cutting out. The only thing I regret about the Corsair Void is that I paid a significant premium over and above what they are going for on this drop.
