    Normal mic #1, corsair big mic #2, gsp500 sounds very artificial and is clearly the worst imo.

    What ruins this is the software. Its garbage...straight up hot trash. The software crashes constantly. Do yourself a favor before you buy any Corsair product, GO READ THE USER FORUMS. Look at something else, you're welcome.

    the fact he said the Corsair Virtuoso sounds better than the HyperX Cloud Flight really make's me not trust these review's. as it's not true. I like to collect a lot of headsets and after getting the Virtuoso I can safely say it sounds horrible. the Virtuoso just sounds like a complete compressed mess. it's dull and muddy and can even sound distorted even. and the cloud flight in wireless mode sounds lightyears better then the Virtuoso does in the USB 24bit 96k mode. the flight in wireless mode sounds so much cleaner and has much more detail in the sound with much better bass and smoother high's and a lot more depth to the sound. using them side by side even the HyperX cloud Stinger sounds much better than the Corsair Virtuoso does. the cloud stinger had much more detail and cleaner sound in comparison to the virtuoso witch is sad to say because the cloud stinger is a low end headset and the virtuoso is a so called Flagship headset. not to mention the Corsair Virtuoso is VERY uncomfortable to wear.

    Bought the none premium version or whatever, last month. Could not be happier, battery life is great (most important feature for me), nice wireless range and microphone is good. Thanks for the video

    In your opinion, which sound better HyperxCloud flight S or these?

  • Cardinal Funky
    Cardinal Funky Uukausi sitten +1 se mic quality sounds a lot better than the one you are showing the video.
    Not sure if it's my pc settings or not, but the virtuoso se mic is a lot better than my arctic 7 mic, in terms of the clarity of my voice.
    From what my friends have told me on discord and from my latest destiny recording that is on my channel, my voice sounds deeper and more towards my natural voice than my old mic.
    Again, not sure if it's just my pc settings but I'm pretty sure my virtuoso se mic doesnt sound like that.
    What I dont like about the se that I love about my arctic 7s is that my arctic 7s separate game and chat sounds.

    Why does a headset need RGB lighting? It's a waste of money, and not to mention a huge power draw.

    I just got these and so far they sound like absolute dog shit compared to the Astro A40s I’ve been using. Everything sounds like I’m using with a cell phone or something. If anyone has had a similar experience and was able to fix this please let me know.

    Really don’t like the aluminum reflection on the SE, it just looks so out of place with the clean back gloss on the band and earcups. I personally really like the white non-se version

    Eh, I don't care, the mic quality sounds good, I'm not that nitpicky. SE looks sexy. Its Corsair. Must. BUY!

    Gaming headset doesn't make any kind of sense. It's just SHIT company try to sell customers with RGB no imaging no soundstage nothing. Just buy a good headphone like ATH-M40s, not the 50s and buy a mod mic or something like that.

    Bought them, used them with a lot of problems for less than 2 months, then they stopped working alltogether, Sent them back and asked for the money. All these wireless headsets suck if you dont put 300+ for them.

    I went through two pairs of virtuosos thinking I got a bad pair, but it was just really bad audio quality. The audio coming out of my old void pros was 10x better and I stuck with those. The virtuoso was horribly flat and tinny sounding. 😕

    The corsair small mic sounded better to me , but it did sound like it was clipping a little so may need to turn down mic a little.

    I ended up going with the Arctic Pro wireless and honestly really happy. I do love the white look on these though. Smaller mic definately sounded better though.

    Dont buy this headset. Just got mine today, plugged everything in and mic didnt work. Had to disconnect and reconnect the mic for it to finally work. After that I was plagued with very loud crackling sounds to the point it was unbearable and I had to switch back to my old headphones. After some google search I found this crackling sound is just 1 of many common bugs/issues this thing has.
    And a lot of people seem to suffer because of them.
    Honestly I dont know why all these tech youtubers praise the hell out of this piece of ass. Maybe I just got a bad unit but when looking at google searches and corsair's own forum it would seem alot of people are getting bad units.
    Almost 200 euro just to have my ears hurt whenever someone in-game talks, shoots or whatever while having no issues like that on my now over 5yr old turtlebeach that was near half the virtuoso's price.

    Even after applying the fix, which is basically just reverting to older drivers the crackling sound is still there. Not as loud and agressive as it was but its still there nonetheless. So please dont waste your money and buy something else.

    I dont recommend getting these, the mic quality is amazing but the sound quality of the headphones themselves is worse than on a 50$ pair of headphones. I cant believe how bad the audio is for the 180$ price. Also the headphones rly arent comfortable at all, my head hurts after using them for less than an hour in any adjustment or position possible.

    I would have liked to see a comparison on mic quality with background noise between the two, I'm wondering if that's related. I would have also liked to see how the audio sounded on the SE with the smaller mic attached to it.
