Headset stands are usually not something most people run out and by, but they are useful so your expensive headset isn’t just sitting around getting tossed and knocked around. Corsair’s headset stand goes a little farther than most by providing USB pass through and RGB effects which look amazing.
Setup is pretty simple as iCue will automatically recognize and install the drivers. Once you have everything plugged in you will notice a USB port on top of the base and on the side as well as an audio pass through. This is a fully featured headset stand and is great for the Void Pro wireless headset as the dongle can be plugged in the USB slot on top of the base and the charger cable can plug into the side. For a non-wireless headset, the audio pass-through does a good job if your PC is too far away.
In iCue, you can customize the lights where are around the base and the Corsair logo on the arm itself. Syncing with your other Corsair products just adds another level of cool factor to your setup and I couldn’t be happier. My only gripe about the stand is the software in which you can’t save EQ profiles across other lighting profiles. You have to screenshot your settings and recreate it in the sliders with each profile. It’s really irritating and I hope Corsair changes this soon. At least the pass-through offers 7.1 channel audio for devices that are 7.1 enabled and the USB slots are 3.1 which most hardware USB pass-throughs are not.
The RGB effects aren’t as advanced as the keyboard or other Corsair RGB products, but Corsair does have the best RGB suite of any PC company thus far and it’s just one more product that adds a dynamic to your RGB setup. Overall, the ST100 stand is a must have and is at a decent price as well.
