Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Having previously used Turtle Beach headphones with rechargeable batteries, that was always a hassle to swap my sets out of a charger I always had going."
_
"I originally was going to go with the Corsair Vengeance 1500, because I always hate running out of batteries on wireless mice, and thought it would be the same."
_
"The battery life is good on these, but the problem with wireless is you must charge them when you aren't using them."
_
"- I was a bit disappointed when the battery wore down for the first time."
_
"Thirdly, I do not like the fact that the headset is not more clear on how the battery is doing, if it is ACTUALLY charging, is the microphone on, is the headset even on!"
_
"The only drawback is their limited battery life- you'd better plug them in and charge them up every night, or else the following day sure enough you'll be out of power (hence the 4 out of 5 stars, and not 5)."
_
"The battery life was great out of the box, and still pretty good."
_
"BATTERY life on these is exceptional in my opinion."
_
"I wanted to wait some time before posting a review on this headset to have some adequate information regarding a few things including battery life, comfort, and general sound observations."
_
"Now, this might be really good as I don't have a bar set for battery life."
_
"When i used this headset i was satisfied with the sound quality and the battery life."

Button

Button:
"Also, the on-off button is really frustrating and poorly designed."
_
"The setup for the headset, while relatively easy for a wireless device, is rather painful to do and redo with laptops especially, and it takes a while to get used to the rather annoying startup button that doesn't merely allow for a simple switch on but forces a seemingly random amount of time (and attempts) to hold down the power button long enough for the 2000 to start up but not so long that it turns off."
_
"My minor complaints would be directed at the power and volume buttons."
_
"The one issue is that the power button is a bit hard to turn on."
_
"It has an on off button, which I dislike because it's a soft-button - I'd prefer a real switch."
_
"Being able to mute it this way is nice, but some would probably like a physical button."
_
"The power button is a large silver patterned patch that could have easily been copied."
_
"Which work perfect except it does not have the mute button on the side."
_
"WHAT WOULD'VE MADE THIS WIRELESS GAMING HEADSET PERFECT+ Programmable buttons on headset, like those found on the Logitech G930+ Give the option of faux leather earcup cushions."
_
"The build quality is alot nicer than that other model and i can safely say that i doubt this will end up with the same fate as the other one.>I love the huge control buttons."

Cable

Cable:
"I have to say for this product I do love it alot and it last forever and it also comes with a recharging cable that I can use still after it is dead."
_
"Now the plastic has broken so much that one of the headphones is only connected by the cord."
_
"I would hate having to leave the usb cable plugged in charging the headset while I'm playing."
_
"These were sub-par at best while they worked, their range was lackluster, sound and comfort were pretty nice, however the area where the power cable went into the headphones caved in within 6 months of purchasing these, leaveing them, unable to charge and in turn completely busted."
_
"The wireless works great, so you don't have to have any cables hanging around, and I really like that it recharges thru a micro usb cable."
_
"Charging the headset is easy, just plug in the USB cord."
_
"Fortunately it works while charging, so as long as you use a long enough micro-usb cable, you should be good."
_
"They are a touch more noisy than my usual headphones: Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones with Coiled Cable, but produce a decent soundstage and balance, whereas many gaming headset blow out the bass."

Charging

Charging:
"Having previously used Turtle Beach headphones with rechargeable batteries, that was always a hassle to swap my sets out of a charger I always had going."
_
"These were sub-par at best while they worked, their range was lackluster, sound and comfort were pretty nice, however the area where the power cable went into the headphones caved in within 6 months of purchasing these, leaveing them, unable to charge and in turn completely busted."
_
"I love how it lets you know when it is almost dead and it only takes about 2 hours to charge."
_
"The device is very simple to setup with the caveat that there is very specific instruction to charge the headset to 100% before using for the first time - and for that initial setup it took approximately 3.5 hours to charge."
_
"I would hate having to leave the usb cable plugged in charging the headset while I'm playing."
_
"1st the battery life is not last too long, I get about 4-5 hrs before I have to charge it and that can be a little annoying."
_
"Forth, the charge holds easily for about 5hrs or longer... if anything... that is the weakness for these headphone."
_
"Worked great for about 5 months then stopped taking a charge."
_
"Easy to charge and last the whole day while gaming or listening to music."
_
"Most don't seem to seat quite well enough to charge consistently for some reason."
_
"The battery has been lasting me 8-10 hours on each charge and the unit works perfectly while plugged in."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"The earcups sounded good and were comfortable but they were certainly not the most comfortable I have ever worn, plus they seems flimsy."
_
"The padding around the headphones are OK, that's the only downside.... they're comfortable but I've had more comfortable pads on headsets before.... maybe they should have used a more slick leather lining on it."
_
"Corsair uses memory foam in the ear-cups, which makes them very plush once they are broken in to your head shape, which makes them quite comfortable when you have them on."
_
"Turtle Beach's phones were similar quality, but far less comfortable, and when my son broke them, I decided it was time to try something wireless so I could take better care of it."
_
"In the past, while I have used headsets while gaming for the increased audio quality and the immersive nature of a tool that lets a person block out all other noise and listen to a game with high-quality surround sound, the downside is the variable comfort of headsets."
_
"These sound great, are extremely comfortable, and have rock solid construction."
_
"The earcups sounded good and were comfortable but they were certainly not the most comfortable I have ever worn, plus they seems flimsy."
_
"Overall comfort is great with this headset if you don't mind your ears being enveloped."
_
"They worked as advertised at first, the sound quality and wireless range were both good, and the ear cups were comfortable."

Connection:
"I can take it almost anywhere in my basement without breaking the connection, but it gets fussy through walls and floors."
_
"Now the plastic has broken so much that one of the headphones is only connected by the cord."
_
"ft dwelling and am able to walk up to the 2nd floor and spend time in various rooms with very minor connection hiccups."
_
"First time paying extra for over the ear headphones..... the headphones are great sound quality and are good all around except with one MAJOR problem the connecting joint broke with in 2 months....and im not the type of person to abuse them, so it was just weak construction.....for the same money you should look at Logitech as well."
_
"I'm really surprised at how great everything sounds for a wireless connection and the distance of the connection is right to spec."
_
"I like the idea of wireless, and while some purists will say the sound can't match wired connections, I think Corsair has done a great job with the Vengeance 2000."
_
"The wireless connection is average at best."
_
"I played games , listened to music , and watched movies with these on my pc because with no complaints.>It works via wireless connection( not bluetooth! )"

Control

Control:
"Mic works well, and the volume control on the side of the headphones is really handy, although it could easily get shifted up or down by mistake.3 months after I got my first headset the frame broke, I filled a support form and corsair sent me a new pair which are the ones I have right now, no issues with the frame any more."
_
"They obviously don't have anyone doing any kind of mechanical durability quality control on these before they go out."
_
"Controls are easy and doesn't take pinpoint precision to reach back and boost or diminish the sound."
_
"The overall sound quality this headset produces was excellent, and the controls were very simple and straight forward to use."

Corsair

Corsair:
"I assume this isn't necessarily corsairs wrong doing, and you would experience this with any wireless headsets."
_
"The Corsair Vengeance 2000 was a bit of a disappointment if I'm being honest."
_
"as in the other reviews i can not at this time recommend corsair products because of there support onlinei say again have a lot of corsair products but because of online support i can not at this time recommend there productseven thru they are good but when you need support you need support"

"Mic works well, and the volume control on the side of the headphones is really handy, although it could easily get shifted up or down by mistake.3 months after I got my first headset the frame broke, I filled a support form and corsair sent me a new pair which are the ones I have right now, no issues with the frame any more."

"Maybe I can leave a better review later, but for now I'm really disappointed in Corsair."

Design

Design:
"It's obvious now that this is a weakness in Corsairs design, a serious significant flaw that limits the life of these headphones."
_
"Unfortunately, it's very poorly designed mechanically, and the earpiece swivel hinges broke after four months of light to moderate use."
_
"It allows the cups to spread out wider than designed for and results in an uncomfortable fit since all the pressure is at the top of the cup."
_
"Also, the on-off button is really frustrating and poorly designed."
_
"This allows me to wear the Vengeance headset much longer than the Afterglow (which tends to give me a headache after a while because of the pressure on my temples).Those planning to use the headset with a computer, will best be served by this headset which is designed for use on a Windows-based PC (although I've had zero problems using it with Linux)."
_
"flimsy light, not design feature light."
_
"First off, the design and finish of the headset are great."
_
"Great design Corsair!"
_
"VERDICTIf I were to design the perfect wireless gaming headset, the Corsair 2000s is closest to being just that."
_
"The result of this design is an extremely comfortable headset that can be worn for hours without any sort of pain or fatigue."
_
"This is a headset designed for gaming, not for music but the sound is good for most casual music listening."

Fit

Fit:
"It allows the cups to spread out wider than designed for and results in an uncomfortable fit since all the pressure is at the top of the cup."
_
"So if you have a giant t-rex head like me you understand how exciting it is to find something that fits comfortably."
_
"They fit nice and tight and keep out other background sounds."
_
"* The memory foam ear pads are comfortable and fit my larger-than-average sized ears and glasses."
_
"Before long pieces were falling off and they no longer fit well."
_
"The sound was loud and clear, and fit was great until two months later the plastic, on the left side, start cracking."

Gaming

Gaming:
"I can't believe what I had missed out on so much from gaming."
_
"This is Corsair's first attempt at a wireless gaming headset."

_

_
"Best Gaming headset and VOIP I've had for all positions."

Light

"The all-plastic framed headphones are light and are very comfortable even when worn for long periods."
_
"They are very comfortable and light weight which is essential for something you wear for computing."
_
"I ordered these headphones and with light use they've already broken...very very light use mostly using them for Skype...great sound, cheaply made...now to go through the process of returning them..."
_
"Because the 2000 is satisfyingly lightweight, it is very comfortable but due to the nature of the light plastic, it requires a level of care that might not be necessary with heavier headsets."
_
"Some reviewers have remarked on their weight or bulkiness but that hasn't been a problem for me at all, in fact they seem light to me."

Listening

Listening:
"It's not the best for listening to music (the mid and upper ranges are a bit constrained) but for it's intended purpose of a gaming set, no complaints at all regarding sound quality."
_
"They've worked well for my needs in both the FPS MMO realm and for listening to tunes while I clean."
_
"Most think I am hacking, but I attribute it to my wonderful headset (and I am not using any perks for listening either)."
_
"Just to give you an idea of what I've tried before - Plantronics 780, Creative Wrath, RAGE, Alpha, & HS980, Razer electra, Logitech G930The Corsair Vengeance 2000 achieves a perfect balance & has characteristics from other gaming headsets I've tried:+ Has the bass and thump power of the Razer electra (man, it is a rumble in your ears with the Razer Electra)+ The excellent surround sound depth and dimension that can be found on Creative headsets+ the solid voice recording clarity of the Plantronics gamecom 780 and other Gamecom microphones (best solution to condenser microphone; plantronic microphones are very clear and grasps the voice well)+ Has the crisp and pleasing sound quality of Diesel Vektr by Monster On-Ear Headphones with ControlTalk (Black)Listening to music is like listening to music on a nice pair of headphones - clean, has depth, and clear."
_
"That tells me Corsair intended to create a gaming headset not just for gaming, but for music listening pleasure as well."

Memory

Memory:
"Corsair uses memory foam in the ear-cups, which makes them very plush once they are broken in to your head shape, which makes them quite comfortable when you have them on."
_
"* The memory foam ear pads are comfortable and fit my larger-than-average sized ears and glasses."
_
"At first I considered comfort, and thought well they are going to be heavier than my 1500's due to the battery, I was extremely suprised that they are actually more comfortable than the 1500 and the weight of them is so balanced you dont notice it through the memory foam cushioning."
_
"One may complain about the plastic pieces on the unit and call it cheap, but the build is sturdy, the sound is great and the earpieces are VERY comfortable with the memory foam cushions."
_
"The memory foam cups are super comfortable and fit over my ears nicely."
_
"I may continue to buy Corsair products as they are good (Hard-drives, RAM memory etc) but will stay away from any new Vengeance family of headsets."

Microphone

Microphone:
"After a while though, and after a while I mean like maybe 3 days, my friends were complaining of a mic malfunction and some kind of feedback."
_
"The headset is comfortable, the audio quality has always been good if not exceptional, and the microphone didn't have any weird feedback."

_
"You can easily mute the mic by flipping it up which I find SUPER handy."
_
"The mic works great."

"While not some $5,000 audiophile mic or whatever, it also isn't a crappy hissy, crackely, annoying mess either."
_
"People on the other side of the headset also seem quite happy with the mic quality."

"The sound quality was great, the mic quality was great and they were able to connect from virtually anywhere in my apartment."

Music

Music:
"Listening to music and movies are OK, sounding a bit muddy, but it didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the music movie."
_
"Not really a major issue for me, but it might be for some people who simply want to listen to music- wireless range is pretty weak."
_
"It's not the best for listening to music (the mid and upper ranges are a bit constrained) but for it's intended purpose of a gaming set, no complaints at all regarding sound quality."
_
"You will seriously forget because having the freedom to get up and walk away from your desk with the music still playing is great."
_
"I love how they have 7.1 surround sound and the mic for games with my friends and it's good for music"
_
"They sounded pretty good out of the box, but I've burned them in for, well, three weeks of gameplay and music, and they just sound amazing."
_

Noise

Noise:
"Not only that, just like all other wireless headsets it has horrible noise interference."
_
"I use mumble with voice-activation so some noises get picked up fairly easily."
_
"The mic is decent, the noise cancellation is very good, but the voice sounds muffled."
_
"The microphone does a great job of noise cancellation and provides very articulate reproduction to those on the receiving end of your mike."
_
"It is seemingly built nice and sturdy and the ear cups are nicely padded making it very comfortable to wear(possibly a tiny bit snug, it felt tighter than what I was used to, but this also means it is excellent at blocking out all outside noise) Setup was easy enough on a pc running windows 7, I downloaded the software from Corsair's website and everything else was plug and play."

USB

USB:
"To clarify, 1200 square feet and I can still roam almost everywhere even though the USB receiver is facing the wrong way."
_
"Micro USB was damaged after 4 months, and completely unusable at 6 months."
_
"I would hate having to leave the usb cable plugged in charging the headset while I'm playing."
_
"The only downside is that you can only use this is the device has a usb port."
_
"i dont trust the dolby 7.1 designation and actually bought and have yet to receive a cheap usb adapters knock off - i am thinking why chase the hard to find dolby surround sound headsets if i can use some common distributed codec (? )"
_
"The only real complaint I have is they do not tell you to plug the usb into a x3 blue port."
_
"These 'phones sound great, are supported by a simple wireless USB dongle, and charge over USB."
_
"Charging the headset is easy, just plug in the USB cord."
_
"I'd recommend using the included USB extension for this purpose."
_
"Another great thing about it is if down the road the charger or usb part of the headset breaks, I can just buy that part without having to buy the entire headset again."
_
"Overall I still love this headset, just would like to see it allow USB operation."

Video

Video:
"Listening to music and movies are OK, sounding a bit muddy, but it didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the music movie."
_
"I bought these because I would love to play games and watch movies in the middle of the night, and my room mates weren't the happiest, since I only had my surround sound system."
_
"Finally, a gaming headset that has excellent sound quality for everything (music, movies, gaming, etc.)"
_
"Works well for gaming, watching videos, listening to music, or for voice chat."
_
"But it's nice for some movie watching or even certain songs that you just want to blast."
_
"If anyone else is having trouble deciding between the Corsair and the Logitech G headset, there's a good YouTube video out that helped me decide."

Voice

Voice:
"I'm also told that my voice over the mic isn't as clear as it was when I had the Tritton."
_
"The microphone can be a bit of a challenge if you dont have a loud speaking voice but its adjustable and very good."
_
"I do a decent amount of game recording and skyping, and I've literally gotten complements on my voice quality from friends lol."
_
"The mic is decent, the noise cancellation is very good, but the voice sounds muffled."
_
"My comp is almost entirely controlled now by my voice which requires an accurate and clear mic."
_
"Just to give you an idea of what I've tried before - Plantronics 780, Creative Wrath, RAGE, Alpha, & HS980, Razer electra, Logitech G930The Corsair Vengeance 2000 achieves a perfect balance & has characteristics from other gaming headsets I've tried:+ Has the bass and thump power of the Razer electra (man, it is a rumble in your ears with the Razer Electra)+ The excellent surround sound depth and dimension that can be found on Creative headsets+ the solid voice recording clarity of the Plantronics gamecom 780 and other Gamecom microphones (best solution to condenser microphone; plantronic microphones are very clear and grasps the voice well)+ Has the crisp and pleasing sound quality of Diesel Vektr by Monster On-Ear Headphones with ControlTalk (Black)Listening to music is like listening to music on a nice pair of headphones - clean, has depth, and clear."

Volume

Volume:
"My minor complaints would be directed at the power and volume buttons."
_
"It's excellent at the full range of volume."
_
"Mic works well, and the volume control on the side of the headphones is really handy, although it could easily get shifted up or down by mistake.3 months after I got my first headset the frame broke, I filled a support form and corsair sent me a new pair which are the ones I have right now, no issues with the frame any more."
_
"Base, treble and mids come in loud and clear and volume is excellent."
_
"I spent months reviewing 7.1 headsets and ended up going with the Vengeance 2000 primarily because of reviews on comfort and volume."
_
"I cannot speak much on audio quality but it does sound amazing while playing games such as battlefield and has pretty solid bass which doesn't wash out the overall sound if kept at a reasonable volume."

Windows

Windows:
"Let me start with this: Currently this headsets are not fully compatible with Windows 8.1."
_
"The audio was fine - I know some people have complained that windows sound is better than the 7.1 it advertises, but I didn't find any issues there."
_
"Although there was nothing wrong with the headphones I had managed to screw up Windows 8 sounds and had to email Corsair to be given instructions on the way to reset it."
_
"For those who have had problems getting them to work under Windows 8 Pro, you simply run the driver (version 1.7) installation software as an administrator using Windows 7 compatibility mode."
_
"The only negative I have about them is that they don't work with Windows 8...I'm very disappointed that they didn't take advantage of the pre-release availability of Windows 8 and get drivers read for the OS release."
_
"I just disable Vengeance 2000 headphones in windows from the systray and reenable the other speakers... and I am good to go."
_
"Lastly, the mic works great and it is seemless with installing on my laptop (Windows 7)."
_
"It is seemingly built nice and sturdy and the ear cups are nicely padded making it very comfortable to wear(possibly a tiny bit snug, it felt tighter than what I was used to, but this also means it is excellent at blocking out all outside noise) Setup was easy enough on a pc running windows 7, I downloaded the software from Corsair's website and everything else was plug and play."
_
"The following was my experience with Windows 8.Vengeance 2000-ProGreat bass and very comfortable around the head."
_
"I am running 64-bit Windows 7.The headset is adjustable with you being able to move the ear cups until you are comfortable and the ear cups are comfortable I play for 7-9 hours at a timeand they have heald their charge so far."

Wireless

Wireless:
"I assume this isn't necessarily corsairs wrong doing, and you would experience this with any wireless headsets."
_
"This headset has sold me on wireless headsets going forward, but I can't recommend these for anyone looking to purchase a pair now."
_
"With the Pros and Cons in mind, I do not recommend these to someone looking to purchase a wireless headset."
_
"Please if u have a 1500 and You broke it or something i want to try the wireless version.. DONT!"
_
"I originally was going to go with the Corsair Vengeance 1500, because I always hate running out of batteries on wireless mice, and thought it would be the same."
_
"Not only that, just like all other wireless headsets it has horrible noise interference."
_
"Wireless has its advantages, and with this headset, I'm never looking back at a chord."
_
"Great sound and love the wireless."
_
"For wireless headphones, i appreciate the quality that this set has; however, the build quality is horrible."
_

"I've owned several sets of cheaper Xbox logitech etc in the $20-30 range, and a nice set of expensive turtle beach wireless, and these are by far way better."
