Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Headset Review  

Introduction

Corsair are well known for their Memory products and have recently extended their range into the peripherals, with the Vengeance K60 and K90 keyboards, both excellent, and the M60 and M90 mice, with stupendous build quality.

It makes sense then that they have added to their suite of gaming peripherals with the Vengeance headset range. Today we're taking a look at the premium model in the range, the lengthily-titled Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Headset.

We're lovers of a good headset here at OC3D. With the array of media applications available on home computers a headset has to be a true all-rounder. Capable of being as good in Call of Duty as it is with Skype or Youtube. The times when something resembling the headphones you'd get with an eighties Walkman are far behind us. So have Corsair managed to bring us a cracker right out of the gate?

Technical Specifications

Although it's billed as a 7.1 headset, naturally it's a stereo headset with some clever driver manipulation. We've seen a few genuine surround headsets and only the Roccat Kave has ever delivered the full monty. However, with good speaker drivers and software you really would struggle to tell the difference so hopes are high.

The big starring part of the Vengeance is the wireless technology. Not only does this free you up from the very irritating "cable across your chest" problem, but allows you more freedom especially with the non-gaming uses. Corsair are proud of their wireless channel solution, so fingers crossed the cutting out/neighbours WiFi problems than can plague some wireless headsets are eradicated.
