We review the all new Corsair Vengeance 1500 and 1100 Headsets, aimed at gamers that demand some headset queasily. Will Corsair live up to it's reputable reputation ? The Vengeance 1500 is the top of the Corsair headset line, supplanting the HS1 of a few short years ago.
Like the HS1, the Vengeance 1500 is a USB powered surround-sound monster headset with hefty 50mm drivers and revised USB drivers that now include Dolby 7.1 surround, and capable of 24-bit/96 KHz playback. The behind-the-ear Vengeance 1100 are a smaller hybrid USB/analog headset, with mere 40mm drivers, offering 16-bit/48 KHz playback in stereo. There is a third Vengeance headset, the 1300, but it is an analog version of the 1500 and we don't anticipate them sounding much different than the 1500.
