Corsair Vengeance 2100 Wireless Gaming Headset

We’ve saved the best for last…or is it? The Vengeance 2100 headset we’re are looking at represents our last product review of Corsair’s 2013 headset refresh. Amongst the entire collection of five headsets, the Vengeance 2100 fills a premium niche with the most notable feature being its wireless capabilities. There was much to compare between the headsets and we’ll have to see if the Vengeance 2100 sits at the top of what has so far shaped to be an enforced top-to-bottom headset catalog.vengeance2100_01_boxfront

Amongst PC enthusiasts, Corsair is one of the most known computer hardware brands long trusted for their RAM and power supplies. Corsair has expanded into new avenues and gained respectable reputation for its cases and gaming peripherals. The current headset refresh marks a third generation of Corsair audio, with apparent improvements to mechanical design and sound quality. The Vengeance 2100 is the successor and replacement to the Vengeance 2000, which was Corsair’s first ever wireless gaming headset. The Vengeance 2100 shares a number of similarities with its wired siblings, the Vengeance 1400 and 1500 (V2), such as the color scheme and Dolby Headphone. However, there are differences, much more so than the differences between the closely priced Vengeance 1400 and 1500 (V2), with the Vengeance 2100 boasting wireless operation and premium qualities. The Vengeance 2100 headset can be found for  $117.68 shipped on Amazon and comes with a 2 year warranty.
