Corsair Vengeance 1500 USB 7.1 Gaming Headset Review

Futurelooks
30 October 2012
  • Summary: The Corsair Vengeance 1500 Gaming Headset comes as no surprise for being great for gaming. One of the weakness of 3.5 mm headsets is it often is only two or three channels of input.
  • Pros: Very comfortable design, Minimizes perspiration, Solid 5.1 surround sound performance, Extremely long cable (9.8 feet), Attention to detail in design
  • Cons: Virtual 7.1 audio an unnecessary bullet point, Trouble with rear center audio reproduction

  • Excerpt: Gaming is like any other facet of technology: you’re only as strong as your weakest link. So when Corsair sent us the Vengence 1500 Headset we were quite excited to see where this headset fit into the vast (and ever-growing) market.

  • Summary: To update in depth shortly.
  • Pros: 50mm drivers, surprisingly clear, good bass, dolby 7.1, metal sides, clear mic+swivel, memory foam earpads, side-swivel so they don't break, cheap!
  • Cons: A bit more fatiguing than a Senn HD 6xx+ but honestly better than any other PC mic'd headset I have tried including Senn PC 3xx

  • Summary: I immediately regret buying these. There is a static sound which is caused by the mic. Even if you mute the mic it makes it even worse. This is a driver issue Corsair hasn't fixed for years.
  • Pros: Good mic for the price, comfortable headband. Firm fit
  • Cons: Static sound in headphones (driver issue). For some reason my pair came with pleather ear cups which get hot and are not breathable

Metku Mods
11 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Corsair Vengeance 1500 is a very felicitous product. Gaming headsets have been suffering from an unaccurate frequency response with overemphasized bass. Vengeance 1500 manages to avoid these traps by having a very neutral sound.
  • Pros: Build quality, Audio quality, Frequency response, Multichannel modes in games and movies, Simple software, Price, Removable ear pads
  • Cons: A bit itchy ear pads, Squeezing, No clip on the controller
