Over the past 2 years Corsair has really molded themselves into an all around company.  If you don’t remember not that long ago Corsair was mainly known for enthusiast memory.  Now we consider them to be a top choice when it comes to cases, solid state drives, power supplies and gaming accessories.  Their Vengeance line of gaming peripherals includes keyboards, mice and headsets.  We have already taken a look at their Vengeance 1500 Gaming Headset and now we are back with the wireless version the Vengeance 2000.  The Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless Gaming Headset features 7.1 surround sound audio, large 50mm drivers, and a wireless range of up to 40 feet.  Read on and see if this is the next gaming headset for you!

     You mute the microphone by tilting the microphone boom back to its seated position. I prefer this to a button on the side as it simplifies the controls.

    Hello!
    I want to ask, if sound quality in bypass is pretty much the same as in 1500 except the bass differences (some think that bass on 2000 is still better than on 1500)? No loss due to wireless? That’s what I’m trying to find out (I haven’t tried any wireless headsets before) and I want first of all good sound quality in bypass. Was going to buy 1500 actually, but then heard about better mic and (probably?) better sound quality of 2000. Is 2000 better than 1500 in bypass, or worse due to wireless?

    Got quite dissapointed about the hiss… is it really subtle or quite noticable, will it affect overal perfomance? Were there any connection drops (the ones in close range (like some of wireless headsets reconnect constantly leaving you without audio for several seconds as I heard))?

    Basically all I want to ask is whether performance of the wireless version is worse than the performance of the wired one or not, because lots of people say that “wireless headsets are always worse than the wired once in terms of sound quality” and everything like that =)

    Thank you for your answer!
