The Vengeance 1500 is a well-designed, comfortable, great-sounding headset that Everything USB calls "by far the greatest USB headset" they've reviewed. Although the site said the 1500's mic was just "middling," it found the headset "extremely comfortable," with "amazing sound quality." Maximum PC also liked the Vengeance 1500, calling it a "serious gaming headset" with "good sound" and "high construction quality." Maximum PC also likes the headset's simulated 7.1 surround sound, saying it effectively simulates a "7.1-channel speaker system wrapped around your head."

Make no mistake, though, this headset earns our more prestigious Recommended Buy award for its sound quality. Priced at $85, it doesn't even break the bank.

Delivering solid sound quality with a built-in DSP, it's hard to believe that they're not twice the price.

The Vengeance 1500 is one fo the better headsets out there for the a very good price indeed. Throw in some really well done software support and you have a tough little multimedia headset.

Great build quality, premium look & feel, and an extremely full range of sound make this headset worth every penny of its $100 suggested price tag. If the 7.1 processing isn't a make-or-break option for you, then this headset is without a doubt one of the top gaming headsets available to date.

While not without some minor hardware and software flaws, the Corsair Vengeance 1500 is by far the greatest USB headset I've ever had the pleasure of reviewing.

Corsair's Vengeance 1500 ... headsets stood out for their aggressive design, sturdy build quality, and overall sound quality. This is especially true when it came to bass reproduction and grinding or booming sound effects.
