Verdict

 

The Corsair Vengeance 1500 Gaming Headset arrived at pcG as our first Corsair review item in two years, the packaging while not being the most protective in the world, was clearly geared at displaying the headset inside to its maximum and did a good...

Great Headset

 

I would recommend these to any of my friends.

Working from home I do a lot of video conferencing so I constantly have these things one. The sound quality is excellent, and the noise cancelling is very good ; The ear pads are very comfortable, except for one item noted below

Because I wear the headset so much I find that the ear pads don't have enough breathing as my ears get pretty hot after a few hours. Nothing that simply removing for 10 minutes or so doesn't solve, but something to mention

Corsair Vengeance 1500 v2 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset

 

If you are running windows 8.1 I wouldn't recommend these. When I had these on my friends computer which is running windows 7, I didn't have any issues with the volume, although the white noise was still there though. I kept these for little over a...

Looks stylish, well built, nice braided cord. Sound was pretty good too when running on my buddies computer that was running windows 7. Mic sounded decent too

Drivers for this device are incompatible with windows 8.1 which is what my comp is running. No point in having a volume switch when the volume already sounds way too high, I cant have the volume any higher then 2% or it sounds like my ear drums would...

Great 7.1 Headset

 

Couldn't get the software for this initially form Corsair's site, as it has been discontinued in favor of the aforementioned newer version. However the software for it's replacement still recognizes this headset and works perfectly fine with it. A...

Very nice looking headset, and solidly constructed. The mic boom is solid, but can swivel up and out of the way. 7.1 works as advertised, and Corsair's software utility is great. A great deal if you can get it on sale (like I did) as it is being phased...

Can get uncomfortable on top of the head during extended (hours+) gaming sessions, but pulling the speakers down a little bit further for extra space and slightly rotating where the bar sits took care of it easily enough. The ear covers themselves are...

Good while they lasted.

 

I'd recommend this headset but the weakest part sadly is the cabling it turns out, if the USB gets yanked a few times you'll be lucky if it doesn't break the cabling connecting the headset and volume control.

Can get very loud, preserves quality ; Very useful drivers ; Very sturdy, you can drop em and they'll be fine (most of the time) ; Had them for a total of 7 months before the right speaker started dieing for no reason. R.I.P

Sound Control for headset is the weakest part of the entire headset sadly ; Swivel mic after awhile will no longer keep its grip a simple bump will cause it go fully released ; What I mean by this is I'm assuming the the few drops it had and the few...

Whine issue, some models?

 

My last headset was Corsair. I liked it.

Sounds quality is excellent. Comfort is superb. Build quality is very sturdy. It had everything going for it. Support was pleasant to work with. But alas

If I launch any application that uses a mic - including control panel - sounds - recordings tab - or things like Teamspeak 3, I get a low level, high pitched whine. It is not something that only "some" ears would hear. It is notable. Apparently this is...

Don't buy if your reason for needing includes having a nice working mic, that doesn't require yelling.

Fits. Has bass. 50mm drivers

Mic is very very low in quality, you have to yell at it anev with volume up all the way

Fun while it lasted

 

I really enjoyed this head set aside from how loud it was until it stopped working. I'm really disappointed with how long they last, for the price you would expect them to at least last a year. I keep all my computer equipment in good repair and take...

Clear Sound, Great Mic

Only lasted 9 Months before they stopped working ; Insanely loud ; Caused weird interference when using team speak and Vent

Solid for the price!

 

It has 7.1 Surround sound what else can you say

Personally I find the 2.0.26 drivers inferior to the 1.1, the 2.0.26 drivers cause the sound to be muffled
