today announced the release of a free software driver update that infuses its Vengeance 2000 Gaming Headset with Dolby Headphone 2.0 and Dolby Pro Logic IIx support, improving both surround sound quality and game capability. In other words, a stellar headset just got better, a statement we're qualified to make.
We recently tested the Vengeance 2000 as part of a five-way gaming headphones roundup
and came away impressed by its build quality and sound performance, especially in relation to its price tag (it streets for around $100). It has a padded headband, sizable earcups, and an aggressive aesthetic that lets other LAN party goers you're not there for the snacks, but to kick some tail.
Inside the earcups are custom-engineered 50mm drivers, compared to the 40mm drivers found in most headsets of the same or similar price. Dolby support just adds to the overall value. Specifically, Dolby Headphone is a signal processing technology that delivers up to 7.1-channel surround sound over headphones, while Dolby Pro Logic IIx processes native stereo and 5.1-channel material to produce 6.1 or 7.1 output channels.
