Corsair introduced the new Virtuoso RGB wireless, and Virtuoso RGB Wireless SE, on Thursday morning. The new set sits between traditional headsets and high-fidelity headphones and offers an audio frequency range of 20Hz-40,000Hz. The new headset also features a detachable broadcast-grade microphone, aluminum accents, and modest RGB lighting.
The new models have a clean, minimalistic look, and the RGB is subtle this time around. The Virtuoso RGB Wireless comes in either black, white, or SE gunmetal, with plush memory-foam earpads and headband for all-day wear. The headset connects via Corsair’s Slipstream Wireless, high-fidelity USB wired, or universal 3.5mm connection. The company claims that the Virtuoso RGB is “engineered for the most accurate and impressive sound quality Corsair has ever offered in a gaming headset,” and the device offers some impressive stats. The pair of high-density 50mm neodymium audio drivers are hand-matched to within +/-1dB of tolerance for exceptional performance, and the Virtuoso RGB Wireless boasts double the frequency range of typical gaming headsets.
The headset also includes the detachable, Omni-directional broadcast-grade microphone with up to 10,000Hz frequency response. That’s nearly double the range of typical wireless gaming headsets. The microphone is also Discord-certified, if you’re curious. As I mentioned earlier, PC users can connect with the Slipstream Wireless tech, allowing users to play wirelessly up to 60ft of range. The USB offers high-fidelity 24bit/96kHz audio and immersive 7.1 surround sound. The third connection is the 3.5mm four-pole connector, which gives the headsets more compatibility with DACs, audio players, consoles, and mobile devices.
The new design includes an aluminum construction, and offers soft cushioning with plush memory foam earpads. An integrated battery provides up to 20 hours of wireless battery life, aided by an accelerometer-based smart-wake function that preserves power when you put the headset down, and automatically turns it on when you pick it back up. When connected via USB or Slipstream Wireless, the Virtuoso RGB Wireless can be controlled through the Corsair iCUE software. You can choose from a range of pre-tuned audio profiles or precisely adjust equalizer settings to your exact specifications. Users can customize the integrated RGB lighting with near-limitless colors and dynamic effects, and synchronize the headsets with all of their iCUE-compatible devices.
The SE model features a larger, 9.5mm microphone element for even better vocal clarity and pickup. Additional aluminum trim throughout the headset accentuates its gunmetal color, while subtle micro-perforation on the aluminum ear cups allows its RGB lighting to shine through or fade out for a seamless look. Finally, the SE model includes its own padded, cross-stitched storage pouch, sealed with a magnetic clasp.
You can find both models available right here on Amazon.
