Corsair Vengeance 1500 and 1100 Headset review -
Page 4 - Features and Benefits Continues
Moving on to the Vengeance 1500, we see that they are the real deal. Very beefy headphones, I mean check out all that metal!
Well, OK, it's a metal foil over the plastic, but it's an interesting design nonetheless. Otherwise, the Vengeance 1500 are almost your typical big headset, circumaural ear coupling, nicely padded headband, sealed back earcups, but these have the exception of 7.1 surround sound courtesy of Dolby Digital Headphone. Yes, the Vengeance 1500 are standard stereo headsets, but use the Dolby Digital software to emulate surround sound.
Weve tested quite a few surround headsets in our labs, and well get into how well that works later on in the review, but the big thing here is that software surround is a lot less complicated than stuffing a pair of headphones with 8 speakers, and yet still doesn't quite work as well.
The 50mm drivers are interesting, promising a lot more volume with less distortion. In comparison, the Sennheiser HD800 have 56mm drivers and a 40mm voice coil (because the technology is rather different, it's hard to call Sennheiser drivers, 'drivers'), so the Vengeance 1500 is getting up there. The Vengeance 1100 is content with the 40mm drivers, which matches the outgoing Corsair HS1 in size. Much like the HS1, both the Vengeance 1500 and 1100 can play very loudly. Watch your ears, I did say the Vengeance can play very loudly.
And again, the Vengeance 1500 are not held together with screws like the HS1 was. I could remove the earpad, but not much else. I felt like I would have to break them to get inside the earcups. The boom microphone thankfully rotates away, but isnt adjustable other than that. It is noise-cancelling, and well get to that as well.
