Corsair Vengeance 1500 Review
The Corsair Venegeance 1500 is your well-priced, user friendly, great looking and durable gaming headphone. The virtual 7.1 Dolby surround sound is one of its most important key features and the headset is specifically priced and aimed for the gaming market.
The Corsair Vengeance 1500’s headset is made out of plastic and the ear cups resemble metal brush. The ear cups are covered in a soft velvety material, which make it more comfortable for the user. The design of the cups, however, might increase the temperature and make them hot while listening to music – but it just requires a brief adjustment in the cups in order to suit the required purpose. In terms of design and comfort, the Vengeance 1500 is definitely a great sounding headset and something one usually expects from a gaming headset. One of the striking features is that it’s a USB headset especially made for gaming. The built in sound card is an upgraded addition especially for gamers who are looking to extract a longer life cycle at maximum performance out of their headsets.
Venegence 1500 is very similar to the previous Vengence 1400; but when one looks into the comparisons made between the two, the difference are the crucial USB port and built in sound card. The headphone is currently priced at a base price which is slightly higher than the previous Venegence headsets. It has large 50mm audio drivers complimented with microfiber covered memory foam ear pads that allows one to listen to music for as long as they want to. The noise cancellation microphone is made up of unidirectional noise-cancelling condenser along with a rotating mic-boom. The cable length is a total of 9.8 ft and it can be played in any system that supports Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP.
Another feature incorporated into this headset is that while one gives out instructions during a game, its noise-cancelling microphone is made to capture the voice clearly. The Vengence 1500 is definitely one of the top of the line headsets in the Vengence family. The pricing of the headset is higher than its predecessor, but the excellent performance is what sets it apart from the rest. On the downside, the Venegence 1500 has a treble which is not clear and smooth, and that can be quite disturbing to the listener’s ear. It’s also heavy on the ears if one uses it for long hours, so one has to keep removing it at regular intervals. However, with engineers specially hired for developing a 50mm audio driver with a built in sound card, and a Dolby digital surround sound, the Corsair Venegence 1500 is one of the most sought after headsets in the market of headphones that are trending today.
