V2000 1 Corsair announces the Vengeance 2000 wireless headset

We're not entirely sure why you'd need a wireless headset as a PC gamer, but if that's your kind of thing, then maybe Corsair's new Vengeance 2000 is what you've been waiting for. Not being content in just delivering a wireless headset, Corsair has thrown in multi-channel audio support as well, for some surround sound action.

The Vengeance 2000 looks like a beefed up version of the popular Vengeance 1500, but without a cord to get tangled up with. There isn't much that differs between the two models, but the Vengeance 2000 looks slightly chunkier and in some ways a bit more refined while maintaining the overall look of Corsair's headset range.

The Vengeance 2000 is yet another USB headset in as much as it comes with a USB dongle that acts both as "sound card" and wireless device. Corsair claims a range of 40 feet which is about 12 meters, not fantastic, but most likely more than long enough. There's no mention of the radio technology used, but we'd presume we're looking at another 2.4GHz device. As for battery life, well, Corsair says that the Vengeance 2000 should be good for up to 10h of continuous usage, which again isn't fantastic, but should be more than sufficient for most users.

The 50mm drivers have similar ear cushions as the Vengeance 1500 with microfiber covers. Surround sound support comes in the shape of HRTF positional audio and Corsair claim that the Vengeance 2000 can reproduce 5.1 and 7.1-channel audio accurately. Overall the Vengeance 2000 looks like a decent enough product, although we still have a bit of a hard time understanding why anyone would go for a $149.99 (S$189) wireless headset when you can get something equally good if not better for less money as long as you don't mind it being wired.
