Corsair has really hit the ball out of the park with the Vengeance 1500. It produces clear and crisp audio while delivering a solid virtual surround environment. You can wear it for hours on end, and at times even forget you’re wearing it. Not only are the core bases covered (performance, comfortable), but it is also quite stylish. The blue stitching on the headband, with the blue accents on the earcups, and the aluminum plating create a unique trendy look.
There’s a few shortcomings with the drivers, enabling Pro Logic IIx is not intuitive, and you can’t adjust the placement of speakers in Dolby Headphone. Also positioning the speakers in 7.1 Virtual Speaker Shifter mode can be incredibly time consuming.
Despite its few issues, it’s still an amazing headset. You can snag it from Amazon for about $90, which 10% off MSRP. But even at its MSRP of $99.99, the Vengeance 1500 is still worth it. ThinkComputers awards the Corsair Vengeance 1500 a 9 out of 10 score.
