The high-end headsets and microphones for gamers meet the minimum audio quality standards as defined by the growing VoIP chatting service.

Gamers have a wide number of VoIP options including Ventrilo, TeamSpeak, ICQ, and plenty of others for chatting and texting. Discord is the latest free solution that is growing in popularity for its ease of use, organization, and utility across both desktops and mobile devices. It was designed specifically for gamers, streamers, and both small and large groups of friends with a current total of 11 million registered users. Dedicated Discord apps are available for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android with a Linux version coming soon. Thus, it's no surprise that Corsair has recently certified its Void series of gaming headsets for Discord use in an attempt to catch on to the growing popularity of the chat service.

How is this "certification" any different compared to regular headsets? As explained on Discord's own blog article, certified headsets must meet the minimum required audio quality as defined by the company. These happen to include the Corsair RGB Void Wireless series, USB Void series, and Void Surround Stereo series of headsets.

Prices for these Corsair headsets start at around 65 Euros for the stereo option and can go up to 130 Euros for the wireless RGB Dolby 7.1 headset. Corsair is also currently the only manufacturer to offer Cherry Silver RapidFire mechanical keyboards aimed specifically at gamers.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
