perky Posted October 5, 2013 Share Posted October 5, 2013 Hi Corsair support crew et al, I don't normally visit the forums of products I'm dissatisfied with and explain why that is so, but then again it's not every day that I spend £100 on a single product. I bought my V2000 in January of this year. I chose the V2000 because I wanted a new headset that was wireless, surround-sound, and good looking, and because I really loved my M60 mouse (and still do!). My previous headset was the Logitech G35 - it's an absolute war-horse of a headset; for 4 years it served me well, being incredibly robust, comfortable, and good-sounding. Perhaps it was too much to expect to imagine that the life of my V2000 would be as long as my old G35, but I do know that I expected it to live at least a year. I'll get down to it, the issues: 1) The microphone pivot/bearing is so loose that it will only stay in two positions, up, and at the bottom. This is because there's no dedicated mute button, and I knew this when I bought my V2000, but I thought that given that there's no other way to mute the microphone other than rocking the boom-mic up, that the bearing would be a little more grippy. This went after 5 months, in July. 2) The micro-usb port broke. My cable is fine (though incidentally, yours is not), but the socket now provides a very loose connection for the micro-usb cable, to such an extent that I cannot be wearing the headset while it is charging -- I have to lay it on the table and struggle for a couple of minutes trying to find the perfect elevation of the cable and angle to get it- to accept a charge. As of writing this, after 10 minutes I still cannot get it to charge, and fear that the socket is now completely broken. All in all I'm pretty unhappy with the V2000, 9 months on. I don't know exactly what I expected of it when I purchased it at the beginning of the year, but I do know that I expected it to last at the very least a third of the life of my G35. And the real kicker is, I've treated my V2000 well, much more gently than I ever treated my G35, on account of the way that the V2000 feels pretty fragile when not on my head. So what next? I see the V2100, and I won't lie I think it looks really good, but I won't be getting it. I'll pursue a refund through Amazon and then buy the Logitech G930, which while I think it's comparatively ugly, I'll at least be happy in the knowledge that it has the capacity to last 4 years.
