InfoMic & CUE Control – Upgrading to Unfair
InfoMic and CUE control are VOID’s solution to creating a way to control virtually every
aspect of the audio from the headset itself, while offering a visual feedback system.
There was a conscious effort to bring controls up to the left side of the headset,
enabling quick changes without having to find a cord-based volume/mute control or
button, so players could keep their finger on the trigger – or their mouse in most cases.
Volume up
Volume down
Short Key Press: Change EQ profiles
Long Key Press: Enable/Disable Dolby
CUE Control functions
Adjust Volume - Turn dial upwards to increase volume. Turn dial downward to
decrease volume.
Change EQ Profile - A quick press will cycle through 5 EQ profiles. EQ profiles
can be changed in the CUE software.
Toggle Dolby 7.1 - Pressing and holding the dial will toggle Dolby on and off.
Mute Button
 Mute toggle - a short key press toggles the mic on and off.
 Sidetone - If the mute button is press and held, users can enable or disable
sidetone. When sidetone is on, sound from the mic is sent to the ear cups, so
users can hear themselves.
Power Button
 On/off – a short key press of the power button to turn the headset on and off. As
VOID Wireless is powering off, the ear cup will pulse either green, amber, or red
depending on the battery level.
 Pairing – pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds will put Void
Wireless into Pairing mode.
InfoMic is a new feature for our headsets, it provides a
visual indicator providing mic status, Dolby status,
battery levels, and connectivity status.
LED behavior:
LED 1 – Mic Status
 LED off: Mic unmuted
 Red:
Mic muted
LED 2 - Battery Level
 Amber pulse:
 Red pulse:
>20% battery
>10% battery
Intervals between each pulse and brightness intensity level can be adjusted using CUE.
EQ profiles and Dolby Status
While CUE is running, quickly pressing the dial on CUE Control will change profiles,
InfoMic LED 2 will indicate which profile is active with a series of blinking lights and
beep. The number of blinks and beeps and will equal the profile number.
 Profile 1: 1 blink + 1 beep
 Profile 2: 2 blinks + 2 beeps
 Etc
The color of the blinks on LED 2 during switching of profiles will indicated Dolby status.
 Green – Dolby enabled
 Red – Dolby disabled
Wireless pairing indicators
 LED 2 Red rapid blinking – Wireless headset not synced with dongle
 LED 1 and LED 2 blinking red and green – pairing mode. LED 2 will display long
green pulse when pairing is successful.
Corsair Utility Engine
Brief Overview
The VOID gaming headset can be programmed and controlled with CUE (Corsair Utility
Engine), the same software used for Corsair’s RGB keyboards and mice. CUE allows
users to configure the ear cup lighting, InfoMic LED notifications for mic status and
battery status, and create up to 5 different EQ profiles. Gamers can also use our newest
feature “CUE Link” which allows lighting effects to synchronize over all Corsair RGB
The software will also allow gamers to create multiple profiles of color and audio
settings for games and applications. These profiles can be automatically activated
when the game or loads. Users can export and import profiles/EQ settings/lighting to
share with one another on Corsair forums.
Configuring EQ Profiles
Void uses CUE or Corsair Utility Engine to adjust mic levels, Dolby on/off, sidetone
on/off, and EQ. CUE comes 5 EQ profiles (Pure Direct, Bass Boost, FPS Competition
Mode, Clear Chat, Movie Theater). Users can customize their own EQ profile and set up
to 5 on the fly profiles that can be controlled through CUE control.
To create and assign a new EQ profile:
1. Click the “Advanced Mode” button.
2. Click
to the right and click on “new” to create a new profile
3. From here, users will be able to adjust the EQ to taste. Clicking on the slider
outside the circle will move that individual slider. Clicking on the circle inside the
slider will adjust that slider and adjacent sliders.
4. New EQ profile “custom”(can be renamed) will now be assigned to Profile #1
Users can move profiles by clicking on the vertical bar next to the profile name
dragging it to any of the 5 profiles or by using the drop down menu.
Users can also disable profiles by unselecting the profiles using the check box.
Configuring RGB Lighting
VOID and its RGB lighting is fully compatible with CUE and all other Corsair RGB
products. The headset, by default on startup, will use the “Rainbow” effect. We have
included other patterns selectable through the dropdown menu for users to select
immediately. Some patterns will have addition options to toggle the speed of the lights
and/or color of the pattern.
CUE LINK is a feature available for those who have Corsair RGB keyboards and want
to synchronize RGB lighting across all Corsair RGB products.
How to set up CUE LINK:
1. Click the keyboard icon at the bottom
2. Select one of the 5 preset CUE LINK modes. Each mode can be customized by
clicking on the pencil icon.
InfoMic Notifications
InfoMic can also be customized through brightness levels, intervals between blinks for
mic status, and battery level. Users are able to adjust brightness and intervals by
moving the sliders.
Creating CUE Profiles
With the latest version of CUE users will be able to create profiles that unify all RGB
devices in addition to synchronized lighting with CUE Link. Like with previous CUE
enabled products, users will be able to create profiles for different applications. For
example: users can profiles with different keyboard macros, audio EQ profiles, different
mouse button assignments for MOBA, FPS, MMOs, RTS, etc.
Profiles can also be linked to a specific game program or application so that the profile
is loaded automatically when the program launches.
To create a profile:
1. Click the “New…” under the Profiles tab. In the window the profile settings
window, enter a name for the profile.
2. Under “Program” users will be able to link profile to any program. To do so
click the check box and click “Browse” to find the .exe file to link to the
CUE profile.
To activate or edit the profile, use the Profile dropdown to select a profile.
Device Information and Updating Firmware
While in CUE, users can find device information and update firmware on the headset by
going to the “Settings” tab where the VOID firmware version and other settings are
displayed. If firmware requires updating users can click “Update firmware” and CUE will
automatically update the firmware.
