In this article I’ll be giving my review of the Vengeance 1500 USB Gaming Headset made by Corsair.

I’ll be covering a lot of things about this headset like what I liked about it and also parts where I could see improvement. Along with that I’ll layout information about the important parts of the headset.

Let’s kick things off the what most of you might be the most interested in.

The Pros And Cons


  • Most Comfortable Headset I've Ever Used
  • Great Sound Quality
  • Very Clear Microphone
  • Easy Microphone Control Button


  • Potential Durability Issue

It’s easy to see that Corsair put a lot of effort into the comfort level of this headset as soon you put this bad boy on.

Getting away from the comfort level, this headset still has a lot to offer gamers to make it a worthy headset choice.

I’ll be going over the specifics and get into detail on what I mean by durability issues in each section below.

Hows The Sound Quality

Sound quality should be a high importance obviously when you’re trying to decide on a headset which and Corsair didn’t let us down here.

One of the next best things of this headset, right behind the comfort is the audio quality.

This headset has Dolby 7.1 surround – Accurate multi-channel audio and 50 mm drivers which produce high quality sound.

The way the ear pads on this headset are made they help cup over the ears which helps lock in the sound even more, which is a nice little bonus.

Can You Hear Me Now (Microphone)

The Microphone is another major factor of any gaming headset that many gamers tend to not pay as much attention to as they should.

This is mainly because don’t tend to hear themselves so they tend to forget about it and just assume that they sound just as good as the sound that’s coming through their headsets.

With a lot of new features coming out lately it has made microphone much more impressive on their overall quality.

The Corsair Vengeance 1500 features a noise cancelling microphone, which is starting to become a must have for all new gaming headsets these days.


As I’ve boasted multiple times within this article, this headset has the best level of comfort of any headset that I’ve ever used.

It has memory foam type of material that basically just conforms around yours ears. It also has a good amount of padding on the top half of the headset (inner half).

I feel that have drilled in the point about how comfortable I think this headset is so I’ll end this section off here.


This is the main area where I was disappointed with this headset.

I felt that with everything else being so great about this headset surely the reliability would match, unfortunately the headset broke off on one side.

Not sure exactly the material of what the headset is made out of but I really do wish that if they make any future versions they replace the material they used with something stronger.

It could be just a case of bad luck but unfortunately I have read others having reliability issues as well.

Where To Buy

If you decided to go ahead and buy the Corsair Vengeance 1500 after reading this article then we need to see about helping you find the best place to purchase it.

The first step I always recommend is go to Amazon to see if they have it and what price they have it at. I very rarely get past the first step to even have to start searching other places but it’s always nice to have those options.

Those would be check over at neweggs website and bestbuys (the website), very doubtful you’ll find the headset in your local store but they have a much larger selection on their website.
