Corsair releases RGB peripherals, intros Corsair Gaming division


— 9:12 AM on September 22, 2014

After much teasing, dating back to the first reveal of the Cherry MX RGB switches last December, Corsair says its RGB-series keyboards are now available worldwide—along with the M65 RGB mouse and a couple of technicolor gaming headsets, the H2100 and H1500.

The company already outlined (most of) its RGB keyboards and mice in June. The lineup includes the $189.99 K95 RGB and $169.99 K70 RGB keyboards, not to mention the $69.99 M65 mouse. Also part of the series: the tenkeyless K65 RGB keyboard, which will be a Best Buy exclusive priced at $149.99.

These are all RGB-infused variants of existing Corsair peripherals of the same names. The keyboards feature the new Cherry MX RGB switches, while the mouse has some strategically positioned LEDs that deliver the same selection of 16.8 million colors.

Also coming out today are the H1500 and H2100, two gaming headsets featuring 7.1 Dolby surround sound, noise-canceling mics, memory foam earpads, and 50-mm neodymium drivers. The H2100 is wireless with a range of up to 40 feet and battery life of up to 10 hours. List prices are $79.99 for the H1500 and $99.99 for the H2100.

These new keyboards, mice, and headsets are all the work of a new division within Corsair called Corsair Gaming. The division has its own brand and logo, and you'll see that logo etched on all of the gear introduced today. Corsair CEO Andy Paul explains: "For 20 years, Corsair has equipped gamers with high performance, precision hardware to build their dream PCs.  Corsair Gaming now introduces new ways for PC gamers to optimize how they play. . . . We've brought together our engineering expertise and our passion for gaming to build a line of products that delivers performance, customized for however you play."

We have one of the new K70 RGB keyboards in our labs, and we're working on a review as we speak. Stay tuned!
