    Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the release of a free software driver update which adds Dolby Headphone 2.0 and Dolby Pro Logic IIx to the Vengeance 2000 wireless gaming headset. The addition of Dolby Headphone to the Vengeance 2000 improves both surround sound quality and game compatibility. The software driver is immediately available for download.

    The Vengeance 2000 7.1 Wireless gaming headset uses rock-solid 2.4GHz wireless that frees and untangles gamers with battery life up to ten hours and a range up to 40 feet. Whether it's a 5.1 or 7.1 audio source, the headset's optimized HRTF positional audio technology gives gamers an edge with precise information about the location of opponents. The Vengeance 2000 also features custom-engineered 50 mm drivers and careful acoustic tuning for audiophile-grade sound with superior clarity and tight bass response.

    For immersive audio and hours-long comfort the Vengeance 2000 employs circumaural, micro-fiber memory foam earpads and a padded headband. The high-sensitivity, noise-cancelling microphone increases effective team play. The headset comes with a Micro-USB charge cable that can also provide power if the battery runs low.

    Dolby Headphone 2.0 and Dolby Pro Logic IIx
    Dolby Headphone is a revolutionary signal processing technology that delivers up to 7.1-channel surround sound over headphones for richer, more spacious headphone audio. Dolby Pro Logic IIx processes native stereo- and 5.1-channel material to produce 6.1 or 7.1 output channels.

    The new Vengeance 2000 software driver is available for download on the Vengeance 2000 product page.

    Happy panda!

    Since I refused to install their software for the few supported games and preferred to use the default windows 7 drivers, I welcome this news with great joy and happiness!

    I always liked this headset, maybe now I can fall in love. :)

    ATM there are no new drivers on their site. Fact checking before posting news is so over-rated.

    I switched from G35's to Vengeance 2000 because I wanted a wireless headset.

    And every single bit is better except the microphone, which is very similar.

    How many wireless networks are nearby (2.4Ghz) and are you experiencing any interference from any of those?

    I count 15 of them in my vicinity. The headset switches channels dynamicaly so that i chooses the ones that arent in use, or with the least amount of networks. I dont have any problems with it!

    Does the software have channel switching as an option? Provide some screenshots if you would, please, if the option is present.

    Corsair should really make headphones that allows the mic to be on the other side of the face. Not the left.
