Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless Headset Review

Well, I for one have had enough of it, and look forward to joining my HTPC and couch-gaming brothers in a new cordless utopia.You see, Corsair has sent me their latest Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming headset for review. No doubt this will be as good as the most-excellent Vengeance 1500 wired headset that came before it, only without the corded woes, and without the surround sound since that too was a burden. Wait, what? Read on to see how the Vengeance 2000 disappoints as I put it through a record 38 compatibility tests in my in-depth review.
