Vengeance 1500: Dolby Headphone multi-channel audio built in.
If you have onboard sound, the Vengeance 1500 provides easy one-cable USB connection and Dolby Headphone technology that lets you enjoy multi-channel games the way they were meant to be played. Dolby Headphone is compatible with any game with 3D audio, and helps reduce “headphone fatigue” while delivering the accurate 360-degree audio imaging you need if you’re playing to win.
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 1500's illuminated 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. Customize your comfort with your choice of the included microfiber or synthetic leather covers. Both use memory foam earpads for a comfortable, 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.

You need fidelity that gives you a listening experience that’s not just immersive — it must also be true to the source material. And, of course, you need the detailed positioning and situational awareness that lets you play your best.

Got these when they were on sale for $70 and they haven't disappointed me yet. They are extremely comfortable and I have no discomfort wearing them for hours at a time. The only drawback is that the cloth earpads included pick up lint and hair EXTREMELY easily. Its a pain to clean them as washing them doesnt remove anything. I usually use duct tape or a lint roller to pick up most of the stuff, but its almost impossible to get them as clean as they were out of the box.
The 1500 is a decent headset especially for its price. Although i did not get it at NCIX and forgot to ask for a price match, 69.99 is not bad. The headset is a tight on ears initially but the quality is great, the foam pads feel nice. IT has a 2 year warranty, so don't expect it to die instantly. The headset is extremely durable, able to withstand headset and twisting. As again, this headset is of good value.
These headsets sound fine, mic is ok. The mic sometimes gives off this really high pitch sound that hurts my friends' ears when we talk online and sometimes it makes you sound robotic. But what really made me feel that this product is absolute garbage is their flimsy design. The volume control device in between the two wires is the bridge between where the two wires connect to make the device function properly. However if you catch this long wire on anything and it tugs, this could result in the wires being pulled out of the volume control device. It was surprisingly easy to do that, and when you open it up you will then realize it is their garbage soldering that is making it so weak. The metal looking sides are not even metal, they are cheap plastic brushed like metal. If you want to get a headset that is not easy to break or ruin then definitely don't buy this one, I trusted everyone's good rating on this product but this product has disappointed me to the extreme. Worst headset I have ever gotten, regret this $90 so much, absolute waste of money. I WOULD LOVE TO GIVE THIS 1 STAR RATING BUT UNFORTUNATELY NCIX DOESN'T ALLOW ME SO I HAVE TO GIVE IT 3 STARS, IF I HAD AN OPTION I WOULD GIVE THIS NEGATIVE STARS. AVOID THIS PRODUCT AT ALL COST, IT'S CHEAP AND FLIMSY NOT WORTH $90.
I got this to replace my old Turtle Beach X11's. I don't notice that much of a difference in sound quality, but the x11 had a horrible hiss because of it's amp and getting rid of that is a big plus for me. The headset kind of hurt for a while, so to break the headset in I stretched it over night on objects. I don't really use 7.1 much, but when I have it on the music is louder, so I keep it on. Overall great headset.. love it.
great headset bought it last summer and i had always had problems with finding a good microfoon cause my pc generated problems for others but this one works just fine so if you are looking for a great pc headset look no further
The head band is stiff but the memory foam make these really confortable on the head. The software is needed to enjoy the potential of the 7.1 and is not included in the package but is downloadable and easily found on the website.
The bass are a little low but with some tweak in the software you can make it enjoyable.
First off, this headset looks great. The build quality is also excellent. When you first test this headset, you understand why so many people love it. It's crystal clear sound unlike many of other gaming headsets out there. However the lack of bass was also quite clear when you start playing your music. You can get a bit more from the headset's Control Panel but not much. However I love the fact Corsair includes 2 years instead of 1 year of warranty. All my past Razer headsets seemed to just die after a year when the warranty ran out.
This is probably the best headset I've ever used in my life.
I've owned MANY gaming headsets - SteelSeries Siberia V2 (too small for my head, uncomfortable after long wear), SteelSeries V5 (was decent but broke a bunch of times), Sennheiser something.
