Summary: Bought them on a whim without reading any reviews, after a few months the plastic above the hinges cracked on both sides. Read through the reviews on Amazon and Newegg, turns out this isn't uncommon. Ended up getting them RMA'd and sold them. If the headset can't even stay in one piece there is no reason to ever get it. Would not recommend.
Pros: Ok sound, comfortable, decent battery Life, wireless
Cons: USB only, slight noise while charging, poorly constructed.
Summary: I'm a pro PC gamer chick. I get new stuff from my sponsors to test it out and compare the products. This headset is great product, sound is great, it's wireless, which is plus however after trying Creative Sound Blaster headset comparing to this Vengeance I have to say that Corsair doesn't come even close to Creative quality and sound experience! Check out my review for Creative Sound Blaster if you would like to read my glory to them.
Pretty sweet headset but what up with the plastic?
2 August 2012
Summary: The headset has really nice sound quality (7.1 DD) crystal clear but a little laggy with USB 2.0 ports. Fine in 3.0. The headset is extremely comfortable except if you wear glasses or something with it, it squeezes a bit on the frame and gets uncomfortable after an hour but alone they are fine for hours on end. The plug in play makes it extremely easy to hook up and use. And theres very little lag even though it is wireless which is nice not having cords.
Pros: Good sound, Pretty comfortable, Plug n Play, no annoying cords unless charging
Cons: Weak plastic pieces and poorly built, low quality in USB 2.0
Summary: After I received the headset I downloaded the software from the corsair website. It doesn't change much of the sound ex:music + bass sounds the same as all the other equalizer profiles. Although the headset does feel durable the lack of bass ruins it for movies and music. The headset isn't very comfortable either.
Summary: This review is for the 1100. Though I'm not a gamer and therefore don't know what the standards are for a gaming headset, I would have to say that this one is of fairly decent quality. The sound is very nice: the bass is loud, but not blaring, and the higher ranges also come through very clearly. For listening alone, I would have to say this headset earns five stars.
Summary: I have a small head and ears so maybe these would sit better for someone else, but they really started to hurt me after awhile. Pros: -The sound quality was fine and everybody could hear me whether I was on a call on my computer or playing the xbox -I love that you can connect them using usb or standard audio jacks -They look nice -Really easy to mute Cons -Became painful after a few minutes -Didn't fit my head very well Overall I can't recommend these for extended...
Summary: Other reviews talk a lot about these being fragile. I've used them for a couple of weeks, and haven't noticed any issues, but maybe time will show that. My biggest complaint is that they are very uncomfortable for me to wear. Hour long meetings with them on are nearly unbearable. I think the main issue is because the ear pads do not rotate, no adjustability at all, and my head/ears must not be shaped right.
Summary: I don't play computer games, but I wanted a good-quality headset for work-related Skype conversations. Twenty minutes out of the box I aced an interview with someone named Vlad in Romania, so I am inclined to view them well. Comfortable, very good audio quality, a little hard to get used to and lacking in some adjustment.
Summary: I had my son, who is an avid computer user and casual gamer use these for a while, and here are his comments: "They have good sound quality. The microphone quality is decent, which is pretty hard to find in headsets these days. You don't have to yell into it to be heard. Of the headphones I have, I would definitely use these for tasks requiring a microphone. It's good for dedicated microphone use, like extended gaming.
Summary: I'll make this short and sweet. After several weeks of use this is what I have found. The headset is somewhat uncomfortable. It is a little weird that the back is square, and not round like the average head. this tends to make for a funny fit. It definitely causes some "ear fatigue" when worn for an extended period. The sound quality is superb. The mic is very clear and sensitive. I LOVE the interchangeable USB+ 1/8" jack inputs which is very handy.
