It’s been quite awhile since Corsair had begun making gaming peripherals and cases, and now they are releasing two brand new products for the Vengeance lineup: the Vengeance 2000 wireless headset and Vengeance C70 case.
The Vengeance c70 case will follow the many of Corsair’s cases and will be priced at around $139 (around the same price of the Carbide 500r) and will be available in three military color schemes: Arctic White, Gunmetal Black, and Military Green. The case will also feature up to 10 fan mounts, space for a 240mm radiators, side window, and unique ammunition box inspired design which I think sorta looks a little bit like the Fractal Define R3 BF3 case modded by Bill Owen showcased at CES2012.
The Vengeance 2000 wireless headset on the other hand also resembles another one of Corsairs products, the Vengeance 1500. The appearance is very similar except for a few extra padding and design tweaks and of course the fact that it will be wireless. The headset will also include 50mm drivers and the 5.1/7.1 simulated surround sound as well, which should be perfect for your next virtual firefight. Additionally, if the Vengeance 2000 is anything like the Vengeance 1500, the solid build quality should also mean that this headset will last you for a long time to come.
All of these products will make their first public debut at PAX East from April 6-8. The Vengeance 2000 7.1 wireless gaming headset will be priced at $149 USD and is expected to be available in June. The Corsair Vengeance C70 PC case will be priced at $139 and is expected to be available in May.
Corsair Adds Wireless Headsets and PC Cases to Vengeance Gaming Line
– Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset and Vengeance C70 PC Case Debut at PAX East Gaming Event in Boston, April 6-8 –
BOSTON, Massachusetts — April 5, 2012 — Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the Vengeance® 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming headset and Vengeance C70 PC case. The new products are the first wireless headset and first PC case in the company’s growing arsenal of award-winning Vengeance PC gaming products.
“Our Vengeance wired headsets have built a loyal following by giving gamers a competitive advantage with detailed positional audio, reliable voice communication, and comfort that lasts over marathon gaming sessions,” said Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager of the Components Business Unit at Corsair. “The new Vengeance 2000 wireless headset relieves gamers from the hassle of accidentally rolling over cables or ripping their headset connector out of their PCs during the heat of battle.”
“The Vengeance C70 case was designed in an ammo-box style, with an all-steel exterior for extra durability, and metal flip-up handles for easy transport to LAN Parties,” said Ruben Mookerjee. “We also made sure that the case had plenty of cooling and expandability options, so gamers and builders can be assured that the case will accommodate just about anything they can throw at it.”
Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset: Untethered gaming with amazing audio fidelity
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. It also features custom-engineered 50mm 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 helps ensure effective team play. The headset comes with a Micro-USB charge cable that can also power the headset if the battery runs low.
Vengeance C70 PC Gaming Case: Ruggedized and Portable
The Vengeance C70 computer case has convenient built-in carry handles and a steel front panel instead of plastic for enhanced durability. Eight PCI-E slots give you the freedom for the multi-GPU setups, and dual USB 3.0 I/O ports and six SSD-ready hard drive bays (in two removable drive cages) enable the PC to be tuned for raw performance. The C70 has up to 10 fan mounts, making it a great case for air-cooling, plus the C70 also features room for water-cooling with spots for the Hydro Series™ H100 or other 240mm radiators on top. The bottom hard drive cage can also be removed to install a second 240mm radiator. The case is available in three colors: Arctic White, Gunmetal Black, and Military Green.

Definitely buying that headset, it looks awesome.
although I do love some of the features of the C70 case, not liking the look. *shrugs*
Note that the c70 is gamer oriented and doesn’t go along with the other “classier” looking cases from Corsair (ex: Graphite 600t)
But part from that I do agree with you that the appearance doesn’t seem as appealing
