Excerpt: 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.
Summary: The sound of Vengeance is a sweet, sultry and beautiful thing, only if it happens to come from the well-crafted cans of the Corsair Vengeance 2000 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset. Every aspect of it is like a wonderfully composed melody; the perfect fitting of the right tunes and pieces.
Pros: Excellent audio, Comfortable wear, Doesn’t distort much with range
Summary: First, a necessary disclaimer to tell you that I've never owned any other headsets or headphones prior to these. So my review is perfect for the newbies.
Additionally, I've owned these headphones for several months (I've lost count, but I bought them around September).
Pros: Amazing Sound, Included EQ, Comfortable, Battery Life, Wireless
Cons: Setup can BSoD, Uncomfortable to newbies, Wireless limited, EQ mandatory, USB only, Surround is useless, Value
Summary: Bought them on a whim without reading any reviews, after a few months the plastic above the hinges cracked on both sides. Read through the reviews on Amazon and Newegg, turns out this isn't uncommon. Ended up getting them RMA'd and sold them.
Pros: Ok sound, comfortable, decent battery Life, wireless
Cons: USB only, slight noise while charging, poorly constructed.
Summary: I will start by saying I went through 3 of these. All of which were under warranty, and I was by no means rough with them.
The sound was nice, it had a decent bass compared to any of my other headsets. At first I really really liked these.
Summary: I got fed up by the cables at my desk at home and decided to get a wireless headset for gaming. I was actually pretty settled on the Logitech G930, right until the point where Logitech told me to just bugger off when I pointed out that they were charging twice as much for the G930 in Denmark as they...
Pros: Impressive 7.1 for games and movies, comfort, great mic, wireless just works
Cons: Hums while charging (only If using a dedicated charger, regular USB is silent)
Summary: Final Thoughts
After spending much time with the Vengeance 2000 headset I sort of have mixed feelings. Let’s start out with the good things though.
This headset has to be one of the most comfortable headsets that I have ever used. The felt earcups are not annoying at all and feel great.
Pros: – Extremely comfortable, – Great sound quality, even in stereo, – Wireless!, – Easy to setup, – Volume scroll wheel
Cons: – Driver installs the headset as stereo device and this cannot be changed, – No mute button on media controls on the headset
Summary: The wireless gaming headset suffers tremendously from inherently flawed drivers that mangle surround sound. The hardware and stereo quality are at least commendable, but these can't justify the $150 asking price on their own.
Pros: Superior comfort and no clamping, Volume roller on left earcup, >10 hour battery, Can be used while charging, 50mm drivers deliver excellent stereo sound, Decent microphone
Cons: Expensive, Surround only works in 45% of titles, Surround fails in all tested media player applications, Xear 3D directional cues not as precise as Dolby Headphone, Xear 3D softens heavy dynamic influences in music, Wireless hiss can be heard during moments of silence, Requires two USB ports for ...
Summary: Today we’re having a look at the Vengeance 2000 headset from Corsair. A brand new headset featuring 7.1 surround sound and a main focus on gaming. The Vengeance 2000 comes in a very stylish and good looking box, showing off its contents.
Conclusion: When Corsair puts their minds to something, they stop at nothing to make it the best in the industry. I think the Vengeance 2000 is another great example of this. Our first experience with a Corsair headset was good but lacked the bass that some of today’s music, movies, and games demand.
