A Hi-Fi wireless headset, with good range/battery ratio BUY IT
2 November 2013
Summary: Great stuff, really good bass, long range, long last battery, super easy to use... on win, mac, and Linux! could be a lil' better if it had a build-in mic muter... Awesome, and for not that much money! Super comfortable! not quite as heavy as expected. adaptable!
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 do in other countries.
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: 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. If the headset can't even stay in one piece there is no reason to ever get it. Would not recommend.
Pros: Ok sound, comfortable, decent battery Life, wireless
Cons: USB only, slight noise while charging, poorly constructed.
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).
The Vengeance 2000 comes with
- The Headset
- Wireless Dongle
- Dongle Platform
- Charging cable
Getting the wireless dongle out of the box was tricky, and left me hoping I wouldn't break it,...
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
Conclusion: One thing I should make clear is that all audio testing is extremely subjective, especially when it comes to virtualized surround sound, due to the nature of HRTF (head-related transfer function). Dolby just works better for me as it more accurately represents a central and front left and right speakers, but rear audio is still indistinguishable – a common problem for all virtualized sound.
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. They were comfortable, although the ear cups collected little hairs easily but you could easily replace those with the leather ones off Corsair's site.
Summary: Purchased these as my last cheap set broke, and dubious about the reviews with things breaking etc I Purchased them. I can honestly say that these headsets are very comfortable, the sound quality is amazing, but that's just in stereo, as I run windows 8.1 there is no updated driver software yet for 5.1 or 7.1. corsair say they don't know when they will be issuing an updated driver, for these which I think is very poor on there side.
Summary: If you use it in a room then it'll work just fine as long as you don't have many devices that work on the same frequency as the headset does (wireless routers work on the same frequency so if you have one in the same room you will get a lot of static for a bit and then it should start to work fine). The headset has a plastic look to it up close but a nice metal look further away. It sits very comfy on the head too.
Summary: Best headset ive ever used and ive used alot, cant compare it to Razer's headsets and its alot better than my logitech g350 that I had before it, really comfortable and easy to set up, only problem I have with it is the battery life doesnt seem to last 10 hours, maybe 5 or 6, only takes 30 minutes or an hour to charge anyway.
