Corsair Vengeance 1500 Review – Corsair’s family of Vengeance headphones are expanding and this is a good thing because it gives gamers and consumers more options when it comes to their high quality audio experience. Two months back, we had the chance to review the Corsair Vengeance 1400 and we loved it. Well, nowadays, we’ll be looking at the Corsair Vengeance 1500, a slightly higher end version of the Vengeance 1400 as it comes with some new and improved features. As far as looks are concerned, the Vengeance 1500 does not look all that different compared to its 1400 counterpart.
Corsair Vengeance 1500, More Vengeful Sounds
The 1500 maintains the same dark brushed metal finish, padded headrest and velvety earpads. Two of the most distinguished differences one can notice between these two headphones comes in the form of the volume and mic controls as well as the fact that the Vengeance 1500 using an USB instead of 3.5 mm jacks to connect to a device. The Vengeance 1500 is rated as a Dolby 7.1 Audio headset, and this is can be happening because of the Dolby Headphone technology as well as the large 50mm drivers that are used in the headphone. The large circumaural earpads are designed to block outside noise from leaking in to the headphones, leaving users with real experience of audio
An upgraded version of Corsair’s Vengeance 1400 now comes with 7.1 surround sound
The Corsair Vengeance 1500 surround sound headphones may be a bit pricey to some, but we don’t really think so as what you are getting is a solid pair of headphones which can be used in a wide variety of audio listening situations.
The audio quality of the Vengeance 1500 is outstanding, as we have don’t have any complaints about using it for gaming, movies and even listening to music. Describing what it’s like to listen to these headphones, the audio is mature, with the mid and high notes sounding as clear as it should. If we were to complain however, it would have to be that the Vengeance 1500 is lacking in the bass section where there isn’t enough ‘boom’ even when listening to bass heavy tracks. The surround audio feature works good, especially when playing games and watching movies that have the surround sound feature enabled. It sounds almost as if you are actually a part of the experience instead of just listening to it through the headphones.
- Outstanding audio quality
- Long cable
- Bass isn’t enough
