Corsair Gaming H2100 Wireless Gaming Headset Review
When gamers are looking for that perfect PC gaming headset, they have a long check-list of requirements that need to be met. Aside from the great audio quality that a gamer demands, the gaming headset should also be comfortable, have a clear and powerful working microphone, and a battery life that should last them for several hours. It can be difficult to find a gaming headset that you can call “the one,” but it is not impossible.
One gaming headset specifically designed for the PC that could just be the one you are looking for is the Corsair Gaming H2100 Wireless Gaming Headset – let’s have a closer look at it.
The Headset Features
The Corsair Gaming H2100 features large 50mm drivers which deliver detailed audio that promises realism. It boasts that sounds such as voices are crisp, has a tight bass response, while its Vengeance 2100 allows you to experience deep and satisfying lows without any overload or distortion – just the way its audio designers intended it to be. This Corsair gaming headset features Dolby 7.1 surround sound which gives an accurate rendering of both 5.1 channel and 7.1 channel gaming audio, offering gamers pinpoint accuracy when gaming.
Its microphone is unidirectional, and sports noise-cancelling technology which ensures that your words will be heard, as well as giving you microphone quality that guarantees your voice will be loud and clear.
The H2100 was designed to allow gamers to play for long periods of time with its microfiber-covered memory foam ear pads and padded headband. Matching the comfort which will give you long hours of game time is the gaming headset’s battery life which will last you a good 10 hours unadulterated bliss, and if you do run out of battery, you can simply attach the USB charge cable and keep on playing.
Audio Quality review
For a dedicated gaming headset specifically for the PC, the Corsair H2100 has great audio. Its 50mm drivers really deliver on great audio quality that will keep gamers wanting to keep wearing them and keep playing.
The sound that you get to hear is rich and full of detail, while still giving you that kick when it comes to bass – something that gamers are looking for so as to feel the full gravity of the special effects they are listening to. The sound you will hear also feels and sounds complete, as you will get satisfying lows, mids, and highs – so you will get to hear whatever it is you want to hear from the game, music, or movie.
The volume on the H2100 is good, giving you loudness that is appropriate for gaming, especially for those that want to max out the sound. The volume control though does have a small issue of its loudness jumping a bit when you adjust the volume; the volume you will hear is OK on medium, but it will quickly jump to high volume with just a slight turn. This issue is not really that a big of a deal, particularly for gamers who tend to max out the volume when they are playing.
The Dolby 7.1 surround sound does offer gamers that immersive audio landscape that they are looking for. This gaming headset is perfect for first-person games, particularly FPS games, where the origin of the sound plays a crucial role. This Corsair gaming headset allows you to turn to the direction of where the sound is accurately, giving you that edge when it comes to being in the battlefield.
All in all, great, full audio and an immersive surround sound that will keep gamers happily playing.
Headset, Mic, and Warranty review
The Corsair H2100 really has a very unique feature when it comes to its comfort. Unlike so many others out in the market, this Corsair gaming headset has microfiber-wrapped memory foam ear pads which are really, really comfortable.
No more of that unbearable and non-breathable leather material on the ear pads which will leave your ears sweaty. The microfiber is soft and supple against your skin, making it truly possible to keep on playing. And since the ear cups are large enough to go over your ear, you will really forget that you are wearing a headset on your head. Speaking of head, it stays on your head comfortably, and will not give you that awful headache from tightness of the pinch that some other gaming headsets will give you.
On the headset, you won’t really have any complicated buttons to contend with as you will only get the volume control there. This allows gamers not to fumble on the controls and miss the action because they were trying to tinker with something on their headset or accidentally press something.
The range on this wireless gaming headset is also great. You can really take advantage of the 40 foot-distance that it is capable of. So you can really move around the house and not remove it when you are up to grab something to drink and etc.
The microphone on the H2100 is also good. It allows your voice to be really heard; clear and crisp sound when it comes to your voice. The microphone boom can be flipped up when not in use, and down when you want to chat with your friends. One minor issue that you may need to face is when you are charging this headset and using it at the same time, there is a slight static on the microphone. This static is not noticeable in gaming, but can be heard when using it for voice recording.
As for its warranty, you get a limited warranty of two years. This limited warranty does not cover wear and tear associated with normal use; accident, abuse, unauthorized repair; removal of manufacturing label and stickers; and etc.
Is it Worth Your Money ?
For the price of just around $90, the Corsair Gaming H2100 Wireless Gaming Headset is worth your money. It has terrific audio quality as well as 7.1 surround sound. Volume control and microphone does have some slight issues, but these are only small problems which can be easily overlooked. Aside from the awesome audio quality, one of the main selling points of this headset is its comfort. You can really enjoy many hours of gaming wearing the H2100 as you won’t be able to tell that you are wearing one. All in all, a good buy for those who are looking for a PC-exclusive gaming headset.
