Corsair Vengeance 1500 Gaming Headset Review

Corsair is well-known for making exceptional computer memory. Although, as we frequently see in today’s market, companies are expanding their product lines. Corsair has created the Vengeance gaming line which encompasses headsets, keyboards, mice, memory, and cases. We’ve taken a look at the <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/corsair-vengeance-k60-gaming-keyboard-review/">Vengeance K60 Gaming Keyboard</a>, and the <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/corsair-vengeance-m60-gaming-mouse-review/">Vengeance M60 Gaming Mouse</a>. Finally we’re checking out the Vegeance 1500 headset. It is a USB stereo headset that uses Dolby Headphone to create a virtual surround environment up to 7.1 channels. With 50mm drivers it’s sure to deliver big sound, and be comfortable at the same time with memory foam behind each earcup. But the key is how well it performs. Check out the review to find out.

Unboxing the Cyborg M.M.O. 7 Gaming Mouse

When I first took a look at this mouse I thought to myself, how can this thing be comfortable? With such a radical design and unlike any other mice out there I was a little skeptical. The Cyborg M.M.O. 7 from Mad Catz is of course geared towards MMO gamers with its 13 programmable buttons, a dedicated DPI switch button, weight system, and a 6400 DPI laser sensor. Did I also mention you can take off different parts of the mouse and exchange them with ones that are provided to you. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video.
