Packaging & Accessories

The Vengeance 2000 arrives in the Vengeance themed packaging we saw with the K60 mechanical keyboard. Adorning the front of the package is the main title set along with 'Wireless' emblazoned across the top of a window which shows the USB wireless key. A side window shows off one of the ear cups which makes for an attractive all round front facing package.

The rear of the packaging goes on to describe the product in detail in English with shortened versions of prose beneath in multiple languages.

The accessory list is very good and initially I believed there to be one key component missing - the headset charger. This fear however was unfounded as the headset is charged via USB, of which there is an included adaptor measuring 1.5m. Also included is the wireless USB dongle (which coincidently can be used as any other ordinary USB extension cable) which too measures 1.5m in length. There is the usual plethora of paperwork too including a quick start guide, safety leaflet and warranty card. All in all a very complete accessory list.

The USB dongle and wireless key look like any other USB pen drive. The idea behind the dongle is to extend the wireless range of the USB device. While the USB key works perfectly well plugged into a motherboard or front header, removing it from other forms of electrical interference and physical obstructions will enhance reception and prevent the hissing sound which plagues most wireless headsets.
