Design and construction
The Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless SE looks very original. But at the same time restrained and even elegant. This is a rarity for a gaming headset. Most of the body is made of aluminum, only one color is available in this version. The models are slightly simpler and without the SE prefix in the name are supplied in white and matte black.
The cups rotate 90 in each direction, and the rotation requires quite a noticeable effort. Little unusual but does not affect the comfort of use in any way.
All moving parts look solid and reliable. No backlash or squeaks were noticed during the entire testing period.
The headband is covered with artificial leather. Which is very pleasant both in appearance and in the touch. With a rather noticeable texture. A neat seam is visible from the side.
Soft padding is placed inside the leather headband. In the lower part adjacent to the head when worn, its layer is thicker.
The arch of the headband is metal. The inner part of its retractable segment. Which is responsible for the operation of the locking mechanism in different positions, is made of plastic. On a small element under the leather overlay, there are “right” / “left” markings. They are hardly noticeable – it is easier to navigate by the microphone and controls.
