  1. You never even said what product you have.
  2. I've had the Void Wireless for years. It's the most comfortable headset I've ever worn. I sometimes use it for 6 or 7 hours a day because my PC is my only soure of entertainment.. it serves as my television, my gaming rig, etc. So I decided to finally try the Pro out because it's $59.99 and my old Wireless, while works fine, the USB charging cable is a little beat up. Soundwise, this is the same as the Void. Kind of sounds like everything is in a tunnel. Bass heavy. Only difference in this headset is the mic I think and honestly it's not much of a change to make me care. If you're after a decent 7.1 headset that's super comfortable and a good price grab this. If you're like me wanting to upgrade to something better sound wise, I'd look for something more expensive. These aren't going to satisfy your needs. These are going back tomorrow. I'll live with my frayed USB cord a little longer, or get a replacement, and hold out for a better headset. Maybe I'll get something with a separate DAC. Who knows. So many people recommend this, or recommend that, it's hard to make a decision. I can say, I'll most likely stay away from Sennheiser. They took forever to respond to my email asking questions, and they didn't fully answer me, then the second time I emailed them no response at all.
  3. I have the Ironclaw RGB. I tried to setup an action to switch profiles or DPI Toggle. Doesn't seem to do anything. Also, on the Default Profile it lists "Sniper" as 400 DPI. How the heck do I even use it?
  4. Why would you not have iCue installed? It's used to change how your headset sounds, shows how much it's charged, and is used to update the firmware on your headset. Without it the headset sounds like crap and you can't tell how much charge is left exactly. My Void Wireless works fine. I am on Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit. Also, any exchanges I've had with tech support never showed up on the forums. If you say it takes so long for them to respond, why didn't you just call them? I've spoken to them on the phone before.
  5. I saw a headset today with a removable magnetic mic. I guess it works via Bluetooth. I would say 90% of the time I am not gaming and have the mic up and tucked behind the headset so it doesn't fall down in front of my mouth (it stopped staying up a long time ago). Would also be good if the mic breaks I can just replace it. Also, you could make it attachable on either ear. Unfortunately I can't remember where I saw it, not that I want to switch anyway.
  6. This has always happened to me: Press power. Unit may or may not turn on. Have to turn off and back on to get it to work. Even then sometimes it won't work. I can't remember, but the most I've ever had to turn it off and on is less than 5 tries. Maybe 3 max. I've had my Void Wireless SE for a long time now.
  7. K95 is on sale for $139 now. I want to get it, but no money to spend until maybe 10 days.. hope it's still on sale.
  8. 3.14 is the latest. Mine updated with no issues through iCue.
  9. Not sure, but I can say this. I just bought it. Only had it connected for like 10 minutes. I love it so far. I read reviews of mouse pads online and it put me off from buying it for the longest time. I came across some extra money, so I basically got this for free tonight. I love it so far. It's smooth. Feels great. Feels much better than cloth. Doesn't move/slide off because it's a tad heavier and has nice grip on the bottom. iCue has built in calibration for it. I also picked up the Glaive mouse. I will probably be returning that. It's a little large for me.
  10. First off, I see that new Ironclaw mouse.. calling 105g lightweight is not right. My logitech is about 80g and I see Finalmouse makes one that's 58g. Anyway, my question is about buttons.. why do they always list the left/right mouse button as having XX million clicks, but never mention what the middle mouse button or scroll wheel is capable of? It seems to me that the scroll wheel /button is usually the first to go on any mouse I've owned. The Logitech Pro says it's got for 50M clicks.. then goes on to say L/R buttons 20M clicks, which leads me to believe the mouse wheel only 10M clicks. I've had mostly Logitech and tried one Corsair. I was disappointed with the Corsair. It lasted less than the Logitech, but both mice don't last nowhere near as long as their mouse click ratings would lead you to believe. I'm searching around for a new mouse now as the wheel is starting to go on this Logitech.
  11. Thanks. I wish I could remember stuff like this, I have Revo already installed. EQ works now, voice still sounds like it's far away / in a tunnel. I've owned the Void Wireless since it came out and vocals were like this at first, but with updates got fixed. Actually EDIT: It's not just vocals that sound like they're far away. Certain songs do also. Rock music like Danzig sounds alright (aside from vocals), however I played Doja Cat Mooo and Go To Town, where the whole song sounds kind of distant / muffled.
  12. For anyone who is wondering.. I got microphone working. On Windows 10 go to Start and search for "microphone privacy settings" and allow apps to take control of mic. Not sure how it got off.
  13. I just realized the mic doesn't work at all. I thought it was CSGO's update.. nope it's everywhere. Uninstalled iCue, Uninstalled Void, rebooted, re-installed iCue, rebooted. Mic still does not work. Headset sounds like I am in a tunnel. If I go into Windows where you can test/setup a mic it says "The Wizard could not start Make sure your audio hardware is working properly and check your audio configuration in the Audio Devices and Sound TRhemes control panel."
  14. EQ works again, however everything sounds like it's in a tunnel. Playing games is hard, listening to television is not enjoyable, music is alright. I reported when I first bought the unit year/s ago it sounded like far away or in a tunnel. That went away in firmware/software updates. I then did a review here on some aftermarket earpad replacements I picked up on Amazon.. not sure why, but the earpads really changed the sound to where I had to turn half the EQ almost all the way down. In a thread here we discussed EQ settings and I said I just randomly turn them up all close to +12db. With the new earpads I had to change 32-250 all the way down to almost -12db in order to even sound good, but 500-16k are almost +12db. Well, with the new software/firmware I can now turn the EQ almost all the way up like I'd normally have it. It's just the tunnel effect that is an issue.
  15. How do do a repair? I have Windows 10. I do not see a repair option in Device Manager. I guess I can uninstall and reinstall if you want.
  16. So I noticed a week or so ago the icon in the Windows 10 changed. Seems I got a new version of iCue... 3.9.93.. I am running firmware 39.02. I noticed the headset sounds like total crap. I thought maybe it was the CS:GO update, but then I noticed everything sounds like crap. Voice sounds like it's in a tunnel / far away. Music sounds better, but the EQ does absolutely nothing now. Anyone else have this? What to do?
  17. I never turn my PC off.. I just log out of Windows and shut the monitors off.
  18. You will have to contact them directly.. for example earpads for the Void are not available on their website, but they do sell them separately if you contact them. T:+1 510-657-8747 TOLL FREE: +1 888-222-4346
  19. If anyone is interested, I finally broke down and decided to try some generic brand earpads. I've owned the Void Wireless since it came out almost and the pads are really stretched out. Corsair wants $14.99 + shipping. They're not on their website for order you have to ask them.. stupid. I never wanted to spend the money. I mean a $99 pair of headphones, $15 of that is earpad? Seems unlikely. But through Amazon I can get them for $1 more, with free 2 day shipping. I tried the headphones without the earpads because they keep falling off. Their obviously uncomfortable, but they sound like pure garbage. I am now convinced that a lot of the technology is in the earpads. Something magical happens when you put the earpads back on. I'm not saying a $9.99 Wally World headset or a $50 Logitech will sound as good or be as comfortable. You will definitely need to fool with your EQ settings. What I liked before is totally different now. They are more bass heavy with these new earpads. I had to turn the left side of the EQ way way way down. It's actually in the negatives for me! I am using a combination of two things to set my EQ. First one is a band I've listened to a million times. The second one I feel is a better guage, though.. my friends band whom I've seen live a bunch of times live: [ame] [/ame] I know how they sound live. I bought these: http://a.co/d/h8Ao9SM They're a little smaller than the originals. I understand part of the reason is because the originals are stretched out from use. But they seem to be genuinely smaller, have less padding. They're almost as comfortable, however, they do seem to block out external noise better. The material is a little different as well. Not as soft. It's not that hot out today and I haven't worn them much, so I don't know how they will do when I sweat. The Corsair really holds in moisture. Some nights they'd be soaking wet. I have a problem with my left ear. I'm not sure if it's because I worked in a warehouse today and my ears got dirty or all the noise of the machinery. If you've ever talked while your ears are clogged up and you can hear your voice echo inside your head or something, this is what it sounds like. It could be because of the external noise blocking. I'll know more on that in a few days. Other than that muffling echo voice when I talk, soundwise I can get them to sound similar to how I think the Corsair Void should sound. Would I buy these again? Definitely, if I had to. Unfortunately by the time I'm ready for a new pair of earpads I'd probably upgrade the headset. PS - If anyone from Corsair reads this.. figure out some design to get earpads on easier! Patent that ****. You stretch one part of the earpad around and then the other part slips off. Repeat the process 5 or 6 times until you eventually get it right. It would be nice to see some sort of earpad that has a soft screw that goes in or clip of some sort.. around the outer edge on the side of the speaker.
  20. I do want replacement earpads for my Void Wireless SE. I don't want them for $15 bucks though, but still they should be on your website.. only the round type ones are up there. My earpads routinely fall off because they're stretched and don't always sit on. The headset sounds HORRIBLE if you use them without earpads. One has to wonder about that.. is the technology really there or is it all in an earpad? Or is there something magical to an earpad when applied on top of the headset? Best headset I've ever owned, most comfortable, however really does make you wonder why they sound so bad without earpads.
  21. Hey there.. restarted my computer and it started working again.
  22. Yes, Enable Voice Prompts is checked.
  23. Also I just realized since there's no voice prompts I can't tell when the headset is low on power and it just shut off on me. :(
  24. Corsair Void Wireless SE. Updated to CUE 2.24.50 awhile ago. Today (yesterday too I believe) the voice prompts are not working (mic on/off, charging, etc). So I can't tell if the mic is on or off.. or if the headset comes on or off. This is a problem because the only real issue I've had since I have had the unit is that it doesn't always connect. Press power button, it would make do do do noise then nothing. Then you'd power off, back on and hope it connects again.
  25. So, didn't you have to run Razer software when you used the Razer mouse? All the buttons just somehow worked? I just figured for every item you install you install the software also. I'm trying to get Microsoft or one of the companies to make some sort of unified programming or scripting language that can be built into Windows.. no need for Razer Synapse because I have a Razer keyboard, CUE because I have a Corsair headset, and Logitech's whatever because I have their mouse. One software to rule them all.
