With a mighty roar, we wish a very happy holiday season to all this year!
It has been said that vengeance is a dish best served cold, but it also makes me wonder what Corsair is so angry about that requires vengeance, especially around and just after the holidays. Unless youre pwning n00bs with righteous fury, dishing out mayhem with a generous helping of vengeance on top. Then a decent headset is a must, regardless of the season.
Today we have on tap two headsets from Corsair, the Vengeance 1500 and 1100. The Vengeance lineup from Corsair extends into new keyboards and mice, and the headset products getting revamped for the new season.
The Vengeance 1500 is the top of the Corsair headset line, supplanting the HS1 of a few short years ago. Like the HS1, the Vengeance 1500 is a USB powered surround-sound monster headset with hefty 50mm drivers and revised USB drivers that now include Dolby 7.1 surround, and capable of 24-bit/96 KHz playback. The behind-the-ear Vengeance 1100 are a smaller hybrid USB/analog headset, with mere 40mm drivers, offering 16-bit/48 KHz playback in stereo.
There is a third Vengeance headset, the 1300, but it is an analog version of the 1500 and we don't anticipate them sounding much different than the 1500.
Other perks include braided cables, and a 2 year warranty, ensuring that the vengeance will last a good long time.
Let's read on and find out how these new Corsair Vengeance headsets work and play!

Corsair RM650 Watt Gold PSU review We review the Corsair RM650 GOLD power supply. Yes, the silent and a bit mainstream RM650 is now Gold certified, that means it's 90% efficient at 50% load. Efficiency matters. The PSU itself is partly modular, for most of you with a side panel window in their chassis a must really as you'll want modular cables. The new PSU also improved on the audibility front. Have a peek at the article.
