The Vengeance 1300 Gaming Headset: intense, immersive sound for gamers who care about audio
The Vengeance 1300's large diameter, extra-deep memory foam earpads are designed for comfort.
Vengeance 1300: Your sound card meets its match
If you have a high-end sound card, the Vengeance 1300 will do it justice. If your audio card has CMSS™-3D or a similar 3D audio system, you’ll hear the subtle midband positional cues that you need to enjoy accurate 3D audio and play your best. Is your enemy behind you and to the left, or to the right? Are they behind a wall, or do they have you in their crosshairs? Gaming sound designers work hard to make audio sound great, and your high-end sound card and Vengeance 1300 are a great combination for making that happen.
The results of obsessive audio engineering
The massive 50mm drivers greatly reduce the overloading and distortion that can occur with gaming headsets that use 40mm drivers. You get more accurate sound reproduction (particularly for the all-important low-frequency effects). You hear more audio, more cleanly, and you get a competitive advantage.
The Vengeance 1300's extra-large inline volume and microphone controller is easy to grab without taking your eyes off the action.
The extra-wide, extra deep earcups don’t just help things sound great — they feel better, too. The memory foam earpads with synthetic leather covers provide a comfortable and reliable fit that conforms to the shape of your head without binding or pinching.
Intense, Immersive Gaming
The circumaural, closed-back design blocks distracting sounds and keeps your head in the game, and the extra-large inline volume and microphone control is easy to grab and use when the action heats up — you don't need to take your eyes off the screen.
Whether you’re barking instructions to your teammates or chatting with old friends, you deserve to be heard. The unidirectional, noise-cancelling microphone is tuned to capture your voice loudly and clearly, while screening out distracting background noises. And, it flips out of sight when you’re not using it.

Corsair Vengeance 1300 and 1500 Gaming Headsets Review

I originally purchased the Corsair HS1 whenever NCIX was selling them half off and after several months of use it became defective and I had to RMA it to corsair and they replaced it with this headset. I have been using this headset for over a year now and had no problems with it. I highly recommend this headset if you can get it on sale.
Linus was right about comfort level for this set, I a large noggin and this were comfortable after 3-4 hrs of playing BF3. The sound quality was fairy crisp but lacked the bass end of the spectrum say for gunfire/explosions. The high/mid ends were clear in the game. At full volume, the speakers weren't as loud as say my old razor set I'm replacing, that could be a good thing to save what hearing I have left.
Overall this is an excellent headset, I don't know why there are bad reviews on it, the pleather is very comfy and can fit my huge ears. Although strapping on 2 3/4 pounds on your head isn't the best feeling it's not the deal breaker.
Would like to start off by saying this gaming headset is definitely not "audiophile" quality! It is just okay. Turn back if you're looking for a headset to use for listening to music as this is a strictly gaming headset type of peripheral.
