Vengeance 2000 Overview
If you saw our review of the Vengeance 1500 headset, you will notice that both headsets look a lot alike. They do both have a similar design, but just a few things are different since the 2000 is wireless. The headset has a very nice and professional look to it with black and silver accents. While I first thought the sides of the headset where aluminum, they are actually a plastic that is meant to look like aluminum. You have matching Corsair logos on each side of the headset.
Starting at the headband it is made of leather and has some cool blue stitching around it. The leather should make using this headset for hours nice and comfortable.
The headband itself is adjustable. It can be pulled up on each side to fit your head perfectly. There are notches on each side so you can make sure you have each side set to the same distance.
While the right earcup is pretty plain the left one has a lot going on. There is a large button with an LED indicator below it. The button will turn on the headset and connect it to the wireless USB adapter, you also turn off the headset by pressing and holding it in. There is a scroll wheel towards the bottom of the earcup that allows for fast and easy volume adjustment. Also hidden beside the scroll wheel is a small mini USB port that is used for charging the headset.
Also attached to the left earcup is a unidirectional noise-cancelling microphone. It can be moved up or down to be positioned for the best sound capture and can be bent in.
The earcups themselves are nice and big and are made of felt, which is going to be very comfortable. Corsair has made the inside of the earcups blue, a nice little design feature. Both earcups can be rotated 90 degrees so you are able to lay the headset flat.
The headset does come with a wireless USB adapter and a 1.5m USB extension cable. The wireless USB adapter sits in the extension cable much like a dock. Having the extension cable gives you more freedom in where you want to place the wireless adapter for better connection.
