Corsair's Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset is one of two in this roundup that offers wire-free operation, the other being Creative's entry. The transition to wireless carries a $50 premium over the Vengeance 1500 reviewed on the previous page, and is a good value at $150. We actually spotted it selling online for $100 shipped from a couple of reliable vendors (Amazon and Newegg), and if it stays that way, you're only looking at a street price difference of $20. As the next step up in Corsair's Vengeance series of headsets, it makes sense that the 2000 is similar in form to the 1500, though it's not an exact replica with an amputated cord. It's hard to see at a glance, but the 2000 offers a slightly tighter fit than the 1500 with the arms fully retracted. On this editor's head, the 1500 covered the ears and needed no adjustment from the default position, whereas the 2000 needed the arms extended a couple of notches for the same fit. Gamers will smaller craniums will appreciate this. Like its wired brother, the 2000 features a padded headband and sizable ear cups.
Looking to take your PC gaming to the next level? Trying to find a way to crank up the sound without imposing on your neighbors or loved ones? Looking for the extra level of immersion into your current PC game of choice? Then you’re probably in the market for a quality headset for your PC. For many years I was resistant about using a headset and honestly only used one with <insert applicable VoIP software here> for communicating with my friends while gaming. However, recent changes in my life (becoming a father) have forced my hand into looking for a headset that can offer me voice and a comparable (or better) surround sound experience to my 5.1 setup. Needless to say, when Corsair sent us their Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset to review, I eagerly jumped at the opportunity. If you’ve been around computers, you’re likely familiar with Corsair as a memory company. They have been considered a top tier PC memory supplier for years, but they have been diversifying their product portfolio, and now offer a wide range of computer peripherals (mice, keyboards, headsets, etc…) targeted at the gaming market. I knew they were doing more than just memory these days, but I didn’t have an appreciation for the wide selection of products they now offer.
Continuing on from our previous reviews on the Corsair Vengeance range, we have in our hands the Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 headset. The Vengeance series of headsets are an update from Corsair's original headset designs, the HS1 and HS1A, which we reviewed late last year. Corsair has made a number of changes to the overall design, but still keeps a number of familiar features, namely that of the memory foam ear pads and swivel mounts on the ear-cups. Many of the details of the Vengeance headsets are similar to that of the original series. The 20 to 20 kHz frequency range, 50 mm drivers, sensitivity of 105 dB, and memory-foam circumaural ear pads; but now with a new style and a wireless option. The 2000 uses a 2.4 GHz wireless transceiver with a battery-life of approximately 10 hours, retailing for about $120 (as of publishing). The package also includes a micro-USB charging cable and a USB extension for the transceiver (both cables are 1.5 m). The left ear-cup houses the controls and the charging connection. Holding down the main power button for a couple seconds activates the headset, holding it down again disables it.
Gaming PCs can sometimes become so entangled with the connecting wires of peripherals that it seems only a matter of time until they conspire to constrict you in an inescapable death-grip. A wireless headset like the Corsair Vengeance 2000 is therefore always welcome. At 115, it enters a market populated by a few star performers, like Creative's Sound Blaster Tactic3D Wrath, and a few that are just okay, such as Sony's DR-GA200. The Vengeance 2000 separates itself from the pack with an easy setup, comfortable design and the trademark Corsair build quality that runs through every product so consistently, it's frankly getting boring. Okay, we jest - knowing that your three-figure headset isn't going to unravel at the slightest provocation counts for a lot - but does the Vengeance 2000 deliver enough sound quality and functionality to make it worth your while?If you don't care about bundled software, the answer's a firm yes. No drama One of the Vengeance 2000's biggest selling points is evident when you first take it out of the box - it's ludicrously easy to get up and running.
When I hear the name Corsair, I think of high quality cases and peripherals. To me, Corsair has a reputation of releasing high quality products at reasonable price points. Specifically, Corsair's Vengeance line of products has focused completely on satisfying the needs of gamers serious about having the right tools for the job. Today, I'll be taking a look at its newest high-end wireless gaming headset, the Corsair Vengeance 2000. Being encumbered by a wired headset in the past hasn't bothered me too much, but I'm certainly game to see how the freedom of a wireless headset can affect my gaming sessions. I'm certainly looking forward to being able to get up from my computer without having to miss any in-game chatting or dialogue in movies when I need a beverage refill. Now I'm going to be honest up front here; I'm very critical about sound quality and I've found most gaming headsets I've tried in the past to be somewhat lacking in the accuracy department (loud bass alone is not going to impress me).
