The packaging for the Corsair Vengeance 1400 is half cardboard box and half plastic, which enables the headset to be easily visible and yet keep it safe in transit. There is a tendency to

Whereas the Vengeance 2000s are bright silver on the sides and the revamped 2100s are black, the analogue Vengeance 1400 are gun metal grey arms with black ear pieces and headband.

The ear pieces are some of the lightest and foamiest that we've ever experienced. You could wear these all day without either suffering from hot ears or uncomfortable ones.

We're hardly perfectionists, a little sign of being well used can be charming, but this is very irritating on a 'fresh from the packaging' product.
