By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 23 comments

Just in time for PAX East Gaming Event, Corsair announces two new additions to the Vengeance gaming line, the Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset and Vengeance C70 PC Gaming Case.

Corsair's Vengeance gaming line currently includes three headsets, two keyboards and two mice. With PAX East Gaming event in Boston this weekend, Corsair has added two new additions to its lineup. 

Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset

The Vengeance 2000 7.1 Wireless gaming headset uses 2.4GHz wireless that frees and untangles gamers with battery life up to ten hours and a range up to 40 feet. With a 5.1 or 7.1 audio source, the headset features optimized HRTF positional audio technology. It also features 50mm drivers, frequency response of 20Hz - 20kHz, and impedance of 32 Ohms @ 1kHz. The Vengeance 2000 employs circumaural, micro-fiber memory foam earpads and a padded headband for comfort. The headset comes with a MicroUSB charge cable that can also power the headset if the battery runs low.



Vengeance C70 PC Gaming Case.

Corsair has taken the PC gaming market by storm with their Obsidian, Graphite and Carbide cases, stemming from cases like the 800D, 600T White and 500R. Corsair has now added to its lineup the Vengeance C70 computer case. The C70 is designed for gamers, specially the LAN party fans, with its built-in carry handles and a steel front panel instead of plastic for enhanced durability. It features eight PCIe slots, dual USB 3.0 front panel ports and the standard headphone & MIC inputs and power & reset switches. It has three external 5.25” bays and six 3.5”/2.5” hard drive bays that are SSD-ready hard drive bays (in two removable drive cages). The C70 has up to 10 fan mounts, making it a great case for air-cooling, plus the C70 also features room for water-cooling with spots for the Hydro Series H100 or other 240mm radiators on top. The bottom hard drive cage can also be removed to install a second 240mm radiator. The case is available in three colors: Arctic White, Gunmetal Black, and Military Green.





Vengeance 2000 7.1 wireless gaming headset has an MSRP of $149 and is expected to be available in June. The Corsair Vengeance C70 PC case has an MSRP of $139 dollars and is expect to be available in May. Read more on the Vengeance Gaming line at Corsair's website.

    Like the Army green one! If its like the rest of the the cases they offer im sure its top notch.

    As for the headset. If its anything like the 1300 I got, its not even worth 20 dollars. It was like having two tweeters strapped to your head. I guess a company can have everything they make perfect. I'll still support corsair just not their headsets!

    Cases look nice.

    Serious question, what is the market for this headset? Gaming nerds who think they need $150 headphones to play Call of Duty?

    Just saying.

    Wow, I like both the headset AND the case. Too bad the headset isn't for sale here yet...

    The boxy styling of the cases make it perfect for the army green color. Would be perfect for an ASUS Sabertooth motherboard!

    I can't speak to the quality of this particular headset as I haven't used it. But there is a market for people who value sound quality and also use programs like skype that require a headset. Most sub $100 headsets seem to absolutely suck in terms of sound quality and comfort, not to mention that most are wired. This is an interesting offering from corsair because I don't think there are a lot of alternatives in this price range.

    I just love Corsair products. I just finished my build with as much of their gear as I could justify.

    I can't bring myself to buy any wireless sound systems. I can't take the chance that they will bring lag to my FPS games. Sound is just as important as sight in those games when you're dodging bullets.

    Interesting that people would spend $150 to use them for Skype. IMO the price just seems really inflated, like they are taking advantage of people in a very niche market. I just bought a pro pair of DJ headphones for $100, that I would bet money sound far superior to these. Granted, they don't have a microphone. To each his own.

    IDK Sound is REALLY important to us audiophile types. If I needed a good set of headphones with a mic I'd be looking for something with at least as much sonic quality as a pair of Sennheiser HD595 (and those aren't even all that but they're not too shabby).

    Yeah for sure. The headphones I just bought (Denon) aren't even the high end, but still really good. Corsair just isn't a brand I would associate with high end sound.

    I guess I'm doubting that these are really made by Corsair. Knowing Corsair and how they are about quality these may be made for Corsair by Sennheiser, Dennon, Pioneer, etc. Google is my friend...perhaps I'll check.

    I hope it has full push/pull 60mm rad support. It would be the first non-800D to have that feature.

    It'll look great with a Sabertooth or the Z77 G1 Assassin board!

    I'm loving my 800D but this in Black or Artic White really would work for me.
