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 Vengeance K60 Gaming Keyboard, and the Vengeance M60 Gaming Mouse. 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.

Special thanks to Corsair for providing us with the Vengeance 1500 Gaming Headset to review.

The front of the box has a picture of the headset along with Vengeance 1500 written in yellow and white. The Dolby Headphone logo along with “7.1 Gaming Headset” also grace the front. You can also catch a glimpse of the headset through the wrap around window from the front to the right side. Doing a 180, the back is home to a wordy explanation of the headset’s features. They talk about 7.1 channel Dolby Digital USB sound processing, high sensitivity noise-cancelling mic, comfortable earpads, and a short blurb explaining the workings of Dolby Headphone. Finally the left side of the box lists the same tech specs that are provided above.
