We have a little bit of everything this week, with announcements from Corsair, Fractal Design, and Razer about everything from headphones to fans:
Corsair adds wireless headsets and PC cases to Vengeance gaming line. You might have seen our review of Corsair's Vengeance K60 and K90 keyboards yesterday. You might also know that Corsair offers Vengeance gaming mice. Well, you'll soon be able to get a matched set: similarly styled headphones and enclosures are coming.
Corsair's upcoming Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 headset features 50-mm drivers, a noise-cancelling microphone, and 2.4GHz wireless technology. Corsair claims it has a range of 40 feet and can go up to 10 hours between charges. (You'll be able to charge it with a microUSB cable.) Look it in June with a price tag of $149. Meanwhile, the Vengeance C70 case offers similar styling with built-in carry handles, a steel front panel, six "SSD-ready" bays in a pair of removable drive cages, room for as many as 10 fans, and support for 240-mm radiators. The Vengeance C70 is due next month with a $139 asking price.
I wasn't all that impressed with Corsair's previous attempt at gaming headphones, but one thing is certain: the company can make some slick-looking gear. The Vengeance 2000 headset looks really cool, and the case has a kind of subdued, industrial elegance I'm quite fond of.
