The Corsair VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless XT are wireless gaming headphones with Bluetooth and customizable RGB lighting. Just like the Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless SE, they have a decently comfortable fit and well-built design. Out of the box, they have a warm but uneven sound profile that lacks low-bass and has a recessed treble. Luckily, they're compatible with iCUE software, so you can tweak their sound using the graphic EQ and presets. Their boom mic also has an excellent recording quality, and they last over 18 hours continuously.

Our Verdict

6.6 Neutral Sound

The Corsair VIRTUOSO are okay for neutral sound. Out of the box, they have a warm but uneven sound profile that lacks thump and rumble while the treble range is recessed. They're also prone to inconsistencies in their audio delivery, so you may need to adjust them on your head each time you wear them to get a more consistent sound. Luckily, their companion software offers a graphic EQ and presets so you can adjust their sound to your liking.

Pros
  • Graphic EQ and presets available.
  • Well-built design.
Cons
  • Very prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery.
  • Sub-par passive soundstage performance.
6.4 Commute/Travel

The Corsair VIRTUOSO are acceptable for commute and travel. They're decently comfortable, last over 18 hours on a single charge, and support Bluetooth, meaning you can listen to your favorite audio wirelessly. However, they don't block out any of the low rumbles of bus or plane engines, and their bulky design can make it harder for you to take them with you on the go.

Pros
  • Well-built design.
  • Supports Bluetooth.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • Bulky and can fall off your head with moderate head movements.
6.9 Sports/Fitness

The Corsair VIRTUOSO are fair for sports and fitness. While they're well-built, they're not designed for physical activity. They lack an IP rating for water resistance, which we don't currently test for, and can fall off your head with moderate movement. They can also trap in some heat, which could make you sweat more than normal.

Pros
  • Well-built design.
Cons
  • Bulky and can fall off your head with moderate head movements.
6.7 Office

The Corsair VIRTUOSO are alright for office use. They support Bluetooth, have a decently comfortable fit, and have over 18 hours of continuous playback time, so you don't need to worry about recharging them during long shifts. However, they struggle to block out office chatter. You'll also perceive their passive soundstage as somewhat closed off.

Pros
  • Well-built design.
  • Supports Bluetooth.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • Sub-par passive soundstage performance.
7.0 Wireless Gaming

The Corsair VIRTUOSO are decent for wireless gaming. These decently comfortable headphones have low non-Bluetooth latency. Their boom mic also does an excellent job of recording your voice, and it can separate it from moderate ambient noise, so your voice is heard clearly. They last over 18 hours continuously, which is great if you game for hours on end. Their companion software offers customization features like a graphic EQ and presets.

Pros
  • Graphic EQ and presets available.
  • Well-built design.
  • Excellent recording quality.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • Very prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery.
  • Sub-par passive soundstage performance.
6.5 Wired Gaming

The Corsair VIRTUOSO are okay for wired gaming. You can use them with either their 1/8" TRRRS or USB-A to USB-C audio cable with full audio and mic compatibility on PCs and PlayStation consoles. Their analog cable also offers full compatibility on Xbox consoles. They have a decently comfortable fit, and you can customize their sound profile using their companion software's graphic EQ and presets. Their boom mic also has an excellent recording quality and can separate your voice from moderate ambient noise.

Pros
  • Graphic EQ and presets available.
  • Well-built design.
  • Excellent recording quality.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • Very prone to inconsistencies in audio delivery.
  • Sub-par passive soundstage performance.
7.4 Phone Calls

The Corsair VIRTUOSO are decent for phone calls. The boom mic has an excellent recording quality, so your voice sounds clear, even in moderately noisy environments. However, the headphones struggle to block out ambient noise around you, so you may have some trouble understanding whoever's on the other end of the line.

Pros
  • Well-built design.
  • Excellent recording quality.
Cons
  • Poor noise isolation performance.
  • 6.6 Neutral Sound
  • 6.4 Commute/Travel
  • 6.9 Sports/Fitness
  • 6.7 Office

Style

The Corsair VIRTUOSO have a very similar look to the Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless SE with a black and silver color scheme. However, they have the manufacturer's pirate ship logo at the center of the ear cup, and it has RGB lighting that you can customize via the companion software. It can be hard to see if you're looking at it from an angle, though.

These headphones are decently comfortable. The headband is similar to other Corsair products, like the Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless SE. However, while their padding is good, the headphones are a bit heavy, and they clamp a bit on the top of your ear. You can also swap the padding, but they don't come with any additional pairs in the box.

The Corsair VIRTUOSO have decent controls. There's an infinite volume wheel and a mute microphone button at the bottom, near the ear cup. There's a switch to select either a wired USB or wireless connection. Unlike the Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless SE, they have dedicated call and music buttons for when you're connected to devices via Bluetooth. There are separate volume up and volume down buttons as well as a multi-function button. This allows you to play or pause audio with one press. Two presses skips your track forward while three presses skip the track backward, and a long press activates pairing mode. You can also press once to answer or end a call.

Both volume controls have an audio prompt to let you know when you've reached max volume on Bluetooth or non-Bluetooth wireless. There are beeps every time you change the volume in Bluetooth mode, but some users may find it annoying.

Breathability
Avg.Temp.Difference 5.5 °C

The Corsair VIRTUOSO have okay breathability. They can trap in a bit of heat, which could make your ears feel warm during long gaming marathons. Although they're not for sports, you may sweat more than usual if you wear them during moderate physical activity.

The Corsair VIRTUOSO have sub-par portability. While the ear cups can swivel to lay flat, and you can detach their microphone, they can't fold into a more compact form. You can see a picture of the headphones in their default position here.

The carrying pouch is sub-par. It's made from cloth materials and has argyle stitching to give it a quilted look. It also has a magnet to keep the flap closed. While it may keep dust or small splashes of water off your headphones, it won't protect them from more significant damage.

8.0
Design
Build Quality

These headphones have a great build quality. They're mostly good quality plastic with a metal frame within the headband and faux leather padding. The ear cups also have a brushed aluminum finish, which makes them look sleek and high-end. They should be able to withstand a few accidental drops or bumps without taking too much damage. While we don't currently test for it, they lack an IP rating for water resistance, which is to be expected from gaming headphones.

6.5
Design
Stability

The Corsair VIRTUOSO have okay stability. They clamp onto the top part of your ears, but since they're not for sports, they can fall off with moderate movement. You shouldn't have a problem keeping them on your head if you're gaming at home, though.

Sound Profile

-3.71 dB
Treble Amount

The Corsair VIRTUOSO have a warm but uneven sound profile. They lack a lot of low-bass, so sound effects lack thump and rumble. Dialogue and lead instruments also sound a bit veiled while sibilants like S and T sounds are dulled. Luckily, if you prefer a different sound, their companion app offers a graphic EQ and presets to help you adjust their sound.

The Corsair VIRTUOSO have disappointing frequency response consistency. They're prone to inconsistencies in their bass and treble delivery, and you may especially notice a drop in bass if you have thick hair or glasses. You may need to adjust their fit and position on your head each time you use the headphones to ensure more consistent audio delivery.

These headphones have fair bass accuracy. Their low to mid-bass is underemphasized, so gameplay lacks thump, rumble, and punch. However, a bump in the high-bass adds a touch of extra boom, which can help emphasize sound effects.

The mid accuracy is good. There's a dip in the low to mid-mid, which thins out vocals and lead instruments and nudges them to the back of the mix. The high-mid is very neutral, though, so vocals and lead instruments sound clear and present.

The Corsair VIRTUOSO have acceptable treble accuracy. It's underemphasized across the range, so your mixes sound dark. Vocals and lead instruments are veiled, while sibilants like cymbals are dull.

The Corsair VIRTUOSO have okay peaks and dips performance. There's a large bump in the high-bass, which results in extra boom. A dip in the low-mid thins out vocals and lead instruments, while a peak across the high-mid makes them honky and harsh. The uneven mid-treble turns sibilants like cymbals alternatingly dull or piercing.

The Corsair VIRTUOSO's imaging performance is fair. Although there are a couple of small peaks in the bass range of the weighted group delay, they're very minor. The rest of the group delay falls under the audibility threshold, resulting in tight bass and transparent treble reproduction. However, the L/R drivers are slightly mismatched in frequency and amplitude response, which could affect the placement of objects like voices or footsteps in the stereo image. While there's also a large mismatch in phase response, it shouldn't be audible to most users. That said, our results are only valid for our model, and yours may perform differently.

The Corsair VIRTUOSO has a satisfactory weighted harmonic distortion performance. There are a few peaks: a couple in the low-bass range and one in the mid-treble range at normal listening volumes. However, this can be hard to hear with real-life content. Most frequencies otherwise fall within good limits, resulting in fairly clean and pure audio reproduction.
