After doing some research with the 'ole Oracle named "Google" to find resources to solve my issue There were quite a few threads, but the threads were at least a year oldI was unable to find a solution that worked for me.
From then, I decided to make this forum account and ask the question myself. To clarify the issue I'm having, my Void USB will begin to play a crackling sound at seemingly random times while audio is being passed through.
Unfortunately I have no reliable way of reproducing this issue. I've been working at it, but it truly seems random when it decides to occur. Here's the list of obvious things I've done that didn't quite work out for me. It can get very annoying at times, especially when I'm listening to my favorite tunes to be interrupted by this noise.
Is there a common fix to this issue that I managed to miss? Toasted's PC Specs. You will want to put in a support ticket and see what they suggest. Xan, I would like to suggest that you totally uninstall your audio drivers and reboot, then reinstall the latest drivers for it. I had the same issue, came to discover that the software that handles the soundboard, Sonic stage or something like that actually created the issues, once I removed it I was good to go.
Make sure you aren't using a usb 3. Some of the usb extension cables don't send constant clean audio data and are better for printers and other devices.

The issue isn't actually with the product but the default driver Windows 10 installs when you insert the dongle into a USB port for the first time and becuase iCUE sees the driver already installed it uses that faulty one instead of the correct Corsair OEM Driver.
Since the Creative Update Windows has been handling drivers differently. To stop this from happening and install the Corsair Void Headset without this issue, do the following: 1. Now windows will automatically pick up the device again and reinstall the driver.
Do the folllowing to remove the device again and stop it from reinstalling if any other devices give you issues in future just renable this afterwards : 2. Unplug the Dongle from the Computer and Reboot. This fixed my issue and I really hope that this tutorial will help some of you guys with the same issue.
Let me know if it worked for you too. Happy listening. Still crackling. I ran through these steps. Upon the last uninstall of drivers, it prompted another reboot. I did it, and it still crackles. I don't have the wireless, though. I'm guessing that's an issue. Stophimus's PC Specs.

Have you tried a different USB port for the dongle? Do you have a lot of wireless devices near the headset and dongle? I have the same problem.

But if you let it continue when you plug the usb back the sound is clear. It's a firmware issue the company still hasn't gotten around to fixing. Find all posts by Hyncharas.

Reputation: Hi everyone! I just got myself the new Vengeace headset the other day. I was a bit disappointed at first, because there was sort of a crackling sound in the headset, specially notable on the ring tone and conversation in Skype that frequency i guess.
After searching around on the web I found some threads, some even local in Sweden that had users with the same issue, some even returned them straight away to the store. This might be a no-brainer for some, but I guess there are more like me out there who didn't know this. Good luck! Thank you! This helped me as well, I was getting desperate in searching for a solution. Omg thank you so much dude, I made this account just to thank you xD so thank you so much!!!
SlySonders's PC Specs. This did not work for me. Every time I move my head, the sound crackles and pops and even cuts out completely, and the USB starts to flash as if they lost connection. Is there any way to fix this?

Compulsive use of dating apps can change your focus to short-term hookups instead of developing long-term relationships. Online compulsions, such as gaming, gambling, stock trading, online shopping, or bidding on auction sites like eBay can often lead to financial and job-related problems. While gambling addiction has been a well-documented problem for years, the availability of Internet gambling has made gambling far more accessible.
Compulsive stock trading or online shopping can be just as financially and socially damaging. Compulsive web surfing, watching videos, playing games, searching Google, or checking news feeds can lead to lower productivity at work or school and isolate you for hours at a time.
All this compulsive use of the Internet and smartphone apps can cause you to neglect other aspects of your life, from real-world relationships to hobbies and social pursuits. Compulsive use of Internet pornography, sexting, nude-swapping, adult chat rooms, or messaging services can impact negatively on your real-life intimate relationships and overall emotional health.
While online pornography and cybersex addictions are types of sexual addiction, the Internet makes it more accessible, relatively anonymous, and very convenient.
Excessive use of sex and dating apps that facilitate casual sex can make it more difficult to develop long-term intimate relationships or damage an existing relationship. While you can experience these impulse-control problems with a laptop or even desktop computer, the size and convenience of smartphones and tablets means that we can take them just about anywhere and gratify our compulsions.
In fact, studies suggest that most of us are rarely ever more than five feet from our smartphones. So what causes our obsession with these always-connected devices.
Smartphones, tablets, or the Internet can be addictive because their use, just like the use of drugs and alcohol, can trigger the release of the brain chemical dopamine and alter mood.
And just like using drugs and alcohol, you can rapidly build up tolerance so that it takes more and more time in front of these screens to derive the same pleasurable reward. While heavy phone use can often be symptomatic of other underlying problemssuch as stress, anxiety, depression, or lonelinessit can also exacerbate these problems.
Staring at your phone will deny you the face-to-face interactions that can help to meaningfully connect you to others, alleviate anxiety, and boost your mood. Increasing loneliness and depression. While it may seem that losing yourself online will temporarily make feelings such as loneliness, depression, and boredom evaporate into thin air, it can actually make you feel even worse.
A 2014 study found a correlation between high social media usage and depression and anxiety. Users, especially teens, tend to compare themselves unfavorably with their peers on social media, promoting feelings of loneliness and depression.
One researcher found that the mere presence of a phone in a work place tends to make people more anxious and perform poorly on given tasks. The heavier the phone user, the greater the anxiety experienced. Using a smartphone for work often means work bleeds into your home and personal life. You feel the pressure to always be on, never out of touch from work. This need to continually check and respond to email can contribute to higher stress levels and even burnout.
Exacerbating attention deficit disorders.
The constant stream of messages and information from a smartphone can overwhelm the brain and make it impossible to focus attention on any one thing for more than a few minutes without feeling compelled to move on to something else.
Diminishing your ability to concentrate and think deeply or creatively. The persistent buzz, ping or beep of your smartphone can distract you from important tasks, slow your work, and interrupt those quiet moments that are so crucial to creativity and problem solving.
Excessive smartphone use can disrupt your sleep, which can have a serious impact on your overall mental health. It can impact your memory, affect your ability to think clearly, and reduce your cognitive and learning skills. A UK study found that people who spend a lot of time on social media are more likely to display negative personality traits such as narcissism.
Snapping endless selfies, posting all your thoughts or details about your life can create an unhealthy self-centeredness, distancing you from real-life relationships and making it harder to cope with stress. We can use smartphones to fill every quiet moment and keep us entertained, up to date, and connected to friends and strangers alike.
But how much time is too much time to spend on a smartphone or other mobile device.One great brand is Luna Pads, which are made with organic cotton. Remember to ask the seller to ship with no plastic packaging.
Some women prefer the Diva Cup, which can be washed and reinserted. Read about them here. Several readers have offered other options. Check out my May 7, 2010 post and especially the comments for plastic-free sunscreen alternatives. Check out these new plastic-free, organic hair elastics. This way, I can avoid all the disposable cups, plates, and cutlery in the lunchroom. Those containers contain endocrine-disrupting chemicals. My Waring Pro is all glass and metal and works just fine.
It was a fun experiment. When we run out of jars, we store leftovers in bowls with saucers on top instead of plastic wrap. Bowls with saucers are great for stacking. We also use Anchor glass refrigerator containers to store daily portions of our homemade cat food. More on that below.
The key to freezing foods in glass is not to fill the jar too full, since the food will expand inside the container. The other caveat is not to heat the glass too quickly. Let foods thaw at room temperature to avoid glass breakage.
Another option for the refrigerator or freezer are the flat-topped airtight stainless steel containers from Life Without Plastic.
Their flat top makes them easy to stack and the fact that they are airtight means food can be stored longer.
