CORSAIR Launches VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT Gaming Headset

Two years ago, I reviewed Corsairs flagship gaming headset, the Virtuoso RGB Wireless SE. Today sees Corsair take that iconic and truly stunning headset and give it a bit of an upgrade for 2021 and beyond. The new model is called the VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT. So what does the XT do that the ST didn’t? Better connectivity than ever, improved driver performance with Dolby Atmos, newer iCue features, and more, that’s what!

VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT

Connecting via hyper-fast SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS and Bluetooth for simultaneous dual-wireless connections, in addition to high-fidelity USB and universal 3.5mm wired connection options, the VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT combines exquisite sound quality, comfort, and versatility. Now with Dolby Atmos three-dimensional spatial audio to complement its extensive 20Hz-40,000Hz frequency range, the VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT offers greater audio immersion than ever before.

Connectivity

Now with four different connection options, the VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT delivers uncompromising sound quality from virtually any source, including PC, Mac, PS5/PS4 (wired or wireless), Xbox Series X and Series S (wired connection only), Switch, mobile, and more. Connecting with 24bit/48KHz SLIPSTREAM WIRELESS technology for a blisteringly fast, unwavering 60ft signal, the VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT also adds Bluetooth with the Qualcomm aptX HD codec for simultaneous dual-wireless connections. A USB wired connection delivers high-fidelity 24bit/96kHz audio, while a universal 3.5mm connector ensures compatibility with a multitude of devices, built with an inline controller that conveniently controls volume and mute. With so many ways to connect, you can switch from PC to console, wired to wireless, 3.5mm to Bluetooth and back, all with just a single amazing headset.

High-Bandwidth Microphone

When the game is on the line, the VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT has a high-bandwidth mic to ensure your voice is heard. This detachable, omni-directional broadcast-grade microphone provides a wide dynamic frequency range up to 10,000Hz to pick up sound in amazing detail, so friends and teammates hear you loud and clear.

What Corsair Had to Say

“The VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT produces incredibly rich, authentic sound thanks to a hand-matched pair of high-density 50mm neodymium audio drivers, meticulously tuned within +/-1db of tolerance for exceptional performance. With twice the frequency range of typical gaming headsets at 20Hz – 40,000Hz, and the addition of Dolby Atmos three-dimensional spatial audio to place the sounds of the game all around you, the VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT offers an immersive experience that lets you react faster and more precisely to in-game audio cues, so you can stay a beat ahead of the competition.”

Price and Availability

The CORSAIR VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT is available initially from the CORSAIR store and will undoubtedly hit other retailers soon enough. The VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT is backed by a two-year warranty and the CORSAIR worldwide customer service and technical support network. It’s currently showing around $269.99 in the US, and we’re awaiting official UK pricing.
