Manufacturer: Corsair Gaming
Price: £99.95 (at time of review)
In the hardware world, Corsair is a long established name that started life, as many of the giants have, as an OEM manufacturer; in Corsair’s case this was L2 cache modules. Their speciality was defunct when Intel began incorporating L2 cache modules onto the processors however so they turned that expertise to manufacturing DRAM modules for the server market. In 2002 they performed the first of the diversifications that formed their cult like enthusiast following when they began to manufacture RAM specifically aimed at overclockers.
In more recent years Corsair has, quite literally, set a trend by branching out and capturing the enthusiast mindshare. Cases, SSDs, RAM, Power Supplies, Peripherals, Audio and Fans; they make it all. The entirety of their range has been renowned for quality and performance all backed up by high levels of service, this dedication to the product and their customers is what has earned Corsair the rabid following they have today.
The subject of today’s review is the Corsair Gaming H2100 USB gaming headset, which is the higher end headset in the range of Corsair’s recently created sub-brand. Like the H1500s I tested a few weeks ago they are essentially a rebrand of their Vengeance counterpart with a new colour scheme, but being that they were superb products already that’s hardly cause for concern! As the model up from the H1500s the main difference we of course can notice right away is the fact that they are wireless, but is the convenience worth the extra cash? Let’s find out.
