Corsair updates its arsenal of RGB peripherals with new mice, keyboards and headsets.
Last year Corsair announced its gaming products division, and little by little it has been releasing versions of its classic products, adapting them to this new aesthetic with RGB LEDs. Well now, taking advantage of Gamescom, they have released a whole range of new products, including three headsets, a mouse and two keyboards.
These are the Strafe RGB mechanical keyboard (standard version and “silent” version), the Scimitar mouse, with many buttons on the left side, designed for the MMO and MOBA genres, and its new flagship headsets. , the Void, which will come in three versions with slight differences and price.
To complement the release of these new products, they have updated the Corsair Utility Engine with new multi-color effects such as cascading rainbows, dynamic waves, etc.
Corsair Strafe: Light and quiet
Corsair’s two keyboard options will be the Strafe RGB and Strafe RGB Silent, the latter being presented as the world’s first gaming keyboard with Cherry MX Silent switches, which according to them offer all the speed and precision achieved by classic linear mechanics but with much quieter operation.
These new mechanisms are in combination with the architecture of the keyboard itself, which helps to suppress the noise generated.
On the other hand, the standard Strafe RGB will be available with both Cherry MX Red and Brown. Both models have a removable wrist rest, anti-ghosting and 16.8 million-color RGB LED lighting, and the keys are fully programmable and can be assigned macros.
They will go on sale in October but can be reserved throughout this month at the following prices:
- STRAFE RGB: $149.99 MSRP
- STRAFE RGB Silent: $159.99 MSRP
Corsair Void: Headset in two colors and three flavors
First we have the Void Wireless, which will be the flagship of the brand, and the most expensive of the three, as you would expect. It is followed by the Void USB Dolby 7.1, and finally the Void Stereo Analog.
The first two practically share most of the features, with the only difference being that one of them is wireless (16h battery life) and the other is not, in addition to the colors. Both provide multichannel Dolby 7.1 surround sound, have RGB lighting and use of different configuration profiles, which we can establish through the CUE.
Inside are 50mm neodymium drivers for powerful bass and vibrant highs. Microfiber ear cushions help you stay comfortable for long gaming sessions, and the unidirectional microphone is noise-canceling.
These two will be on sale later this month.
- VOID Wireless SE (Yellowjacket) – $149.99 MSRP (Best Buy only)
- VOID Wireless (Carbon) – $129.99 MSRP
- VOID USB Dolby 7.1 – $99 MSRP
Finally, we have the little brother, the Void Stereo Analog, which, as its name suggests, offers stereo sound and does not have lighting but is compatible with mobile devices as it comes with mini-jack connectors (in addition to a Y adapter for consoles).
It will also arrive at the end of August at a recommended price of $79.99.
Corsair Scimitar: A mouse with many lights
Well, it doesn’t really have that many, what it does have is a bunch of buttons, namely 12 of them on the side alone (mechanical), which can be slightly adjusted by about 8mm to ensure all buttons are within reach.
It incorporates a sensor of up to 12000 DPI and offers the possibility of configuring LED lighting, macros, assignment of functions through CUE, etc.
This will be on sale in September at a price of $79.99.
