For the last year or so I have had the Corsair Vengeance 2000. They worked OK, nothing great but I kept them around because they are wireless. I didnt use the Corsair software simply because I found it a little buggy.
Well, with the joy of a new puppy comes the destruction of anything close to the ground & she chewed up the USB dongle extension cable which holds the USB device vertical. No big deal, just pop it in any open USB port.
But ever since then I have been getting static, sound cutting out, volume issues. First thought was, well its wireless, so there ya go. Then I thought - it seems worse on YouTube, maybe its a flash thing - but I was getting static and popping sound in movies I have on PC.
After looking through Corsair's forums - it seems I wasn't alone - so I "donated" them to the puppy toy chest and went to BB and purchased the newer version - Corsair Vengeance 2100 - ooooo aaaahhhhh
I think they are the same headphones with better software. They are very comfortable - Im just not impressed with the overall sound.
The reason for this thread is this: The BB near me has a lot of really high end stuff. McIntosh, Martin Logan stereo stuff, Viking kitchen appliances, etc. They had some nice looking headphones in the stereo/theater section.
These were definitely headphones for audiophiles - my question:
Anyone use those style headphones for light gaming & movies ? Or are they like Bang&Olufsen speakers ? (not that great unless you only listen to soft rock or classical). I am wondering if the $200 - $500 studio headphones would get muddled sound in gaming.
