Product information: Vengeance 1500 Dolby 7.1 Professional USB Gaming Headset

If you have onboard sound, the Vengeance 1500 provides easy one-cable USB connection and Dolby Headphone technology that lets you enjoy multi-channel games the way they were meant to be played. Dolby Headphone is compatible with any game with 3D audio, and helps reduce “headphone fatigue” while delivering the accurate 360-degree audio imaging you need if you’re playing to win.

The massive 50mm drivers greatly reduce the overloading and distortion that can occur with gaming headsets that use 40mm drivers. You get more accurate sound reproduction (particularly for the all-important low-frequency effects). You hear more audio, more cleanly, and you get a competitive advantage.

The extra-wide, extra deep earcups don’t just help things sound great — they feel better, too. Customize your comfort with your choice of the included microfiber or synthetic leather covers. Both use memory foam earpads for a comfortable, reliable fit that conforms to the shape of your head without binding or pinching.

The circumaural, closed-back design blocks distracting sounds and keeps your head in the game, and the extra-large inline volume and microphone control is easy to grab and use when the action heats up — you don't need to take your eyes off the screen.

Whether you’re barking instructions to your teammates or chatting with old friends, you deserve to be heard. The unidirectional, noise-cancelling microphone is tuned to capture your voice loudly and clearly, while screening out distracting background noises. And, it flips out of sight when you’re not using it.
Corsair audio: a sound philosophy


You need more than just dramatic audio. You need the comfort that allows you to play or talk for hours without thinking about what’s on your head. You need fidelity that gives you a listening experience that’s not just immersive — it must also be true to the source material. And, of course, you need the detailed positioning and situational awareness that lets you play your best.

Most uncomfortable headphones ever

So I needed a pair of USB headphones after making the switch to a living room gaming setup as I thought this would be the easiest way. Oh how I was wrong!
Firstly, there is an annoying high-pitch whine constantly in the background (it's quiet, and poss. outside most people's hearing range, but it's there) probably caused by the USB "sound card" being powered on the USB line, thus leading to interference.
Secondly, the are damn uncomfortable, they managed to give me a headache with the way in which they attempted to grip my head...
Thirdly, I say "attempted" because they constantly slid off if I moved my head even "slightly" violently.
These will be going back for a refund, because quite simply, they aren't up to the job.

Good Headset

Very good for the price. Crisp and clear across the range, nearly no distortion at high volumes and great for gaming. Audiophiles will want to look at more expensive headsets, but for "normal" consumers in this price range they're difficult to beat.

good peice of kit

good points:
-comfy, after they've loosened up [it'll take a month or two]
-easy to set up and use, hardest part for me was finding a free usb2
-like all corsair stuff, these are solidly put together
-microphone can be muted at the touch of a button
-there's a lot of adjustability in the software, certainly more than most would need [ie just turn it to fps preset and be done]

bad points:
-very tight when new, and for me at least ends up giving my jaw cramp, but it eases with time
- unlike the description, didnt come with leather pads. the fibre ones do tend to pick up dust etc something shocking.

other items of note:
-the surround sound is great, and i increasingly find myself using my ears to locate foes in games.
-two words: DAT BASS
-no comment on the quality of the audio as i'm no real audiophile, but from the average joe's perspective it seems very good indeed

Superb

Extremely comfortable and the sound quality is unreal.

To begin with the headset hurt my ears as it was so tight but after 1-2 weeks it's pain free and very very comfortable.

If you turn the volume to max and put the headset down on a desk.. you can still hear the sound from 5-10 metres away, crisp and clear.

Decent, has its flaws

First off this is a really good quality headset. Sound is great, its comfy and well built. The cable is braided and doesnt tange. Plus the software is quite good I find. Oh and the mic is very sensitive!

However the flaws are:
- Not ideal for small heads as the headband is quite solid, ie doesn't bend easily

- The "cushions" for the ear pads if you like get dusty easily and you can get hot ears for extended use.

Great

These are the comfiest headphones that I have put on my head. They fir perfectly and my glasses are not effected by them at all.

The sound quality is brilliant, the build is brilliant.

Had a bit of a problem with my delivery but after contacting overclockers everything was sorted out. Very happy with both service and product!

Solid and customisable sound

Typical corsair...a very well built product. I would have preferred leatherette pads but these cloth ones are still of a high quality and are comfy :). Software downloaded easily enough (after my antivirus stopped attacking it) and is easy to use.

Not too sure on the sound of them yet. be careful with how many equalisers you are dealing with (for example itunes and dolby at the same time) but they can be bassy if you want them to be.. ive only had them a day or two and whenever i pump up the bass i miss the highs...but bringing back the high end then drops out the bass! once i find the middleground for me this will be a lovely headset to own sinse the soundcard on my laptop currently is rubbish!
I cannot tell much difference in sound from my desktop onboard soundcard though...so it doesnt do absolute wonders to everything. I am yet to try movies/surround sound enabled games on these.

This doesn't deserve a rating.

This doesn't deserve a rating, they outperform ratings.

If you have the money, don't be silly, get one of these... You won't regret it...

Very Nice

Solid headset with great sound and real clarity on the mic. I absolutely love the build of this head set it's very solid and comfortable.

They are a bit tight at first, but I don't think I've ever had a headset that's not at first

You really cant go wrong especially at the price point.

Pretty Good Overall

They are an amazing headset, Good comfort, Great sound quality great microphone quality. However. They are VERY tight on your head at first but you tend to get used to them, Very noise cancelling. one major thing about my pair. I treat them with great care and handling however the wire at the sound control box seems to be coming OUT of the casing... Which is very very annoying considering I have only had them for about a month. And when my PC was connected to a Dodgy outlet, My sound would randomly Drop out and reset to normal. But all that fixed ( apart from cable ) They are a Very good headset. For
