Default Vengeance 2000 Low Battery Beep

Hi

Would love to know if there is a way to turn of this incredible annoying sound (the beeping) that starts when your batteries a running low. I don't care if it's not an official solution, as long as I can turn that f*#king sound OFF I'll be a happy man again.

Unfortunately, you cannot turn it off. You can plug your charger cable to stop the noise though.

Toasted's correct. You also don't want to let it fully discharge under normal circumstances.

The beeping is to warn you to charge the headset because the battery is low. If you turn the beep off, you would get no warning and draining the headset completely can cause the battery to never charge again.

Is there any update in the works to tell us an exact % of charge via drivers? This is about the only thing that would make the headset perfect imo, just a little system icon with a percentage of battery on the headset.

I know what the beep is about and why it is there BUT, and this a big but. I'd rather get a pop-up message in the system tray rather than this annoying sound.

Can't see that being a huge deal to implement...

The bigger issue is that if you're gaming and the pop-up message isn't seen. By the time you realize the headset is out of battery, it would be too late.

Who said anything about gaming?
All I'm asking for is the option to pick between a visual notification or a sound.

I find your argument a bit weird though since I tend to sometimes forget to turn of the headset when I take it off. How am I ever gonna know I'm running low on battery then if I'm not even hearing a small beep?

But I guess it's just silly of me as customer to question things and ask for small adjustments...

It has its pros and cons. There will be cases that you'd one day thank that annoying beep. For an extreme example, the headset just suddenly turned off (no more power), you lost your concentration because of that suddenness, and that proved fatal since you miss-clicked an important skill in dota, causing you to lose that big teamfight. You're most likely gonna be called a retard by your teammates for miss clicking something so easy. Anyway it's there to annoy you for a reason.

though I'd really love it if the charging cable is longer. Seeing that you need to plug the charger in a rather awkward position, you're more likely to find yourself being choked thanks to that short wire.

Woah slow down, this isn't a personal attack on you. It was simply an example of why your solution isn't the best. This was designed to be a gaming headset after all and why I used gaming as a plausible example.

If you forget to turn off your headset after taking it off, then that's not a problem with the headset is it? You can forget to turn the stove off too but you wouldn't blame the stove for not telling you it's still on I'm sure....

Is there a chance that you at Corsair could implement in the Corsair Control Panel the option to chose between a visual and/or audio notification when the batteries are running low on the headset?

There, couldn't make the question more straightforward. Now, can I get a simple answer?

The answer is no. However, I will pass it along as feedback that there are customers who may be interested in future implementation of this feature.
