Corsair Vengeance 1300 Gaming Headset Review (Hardware, PC)

Posted by Jeff Lindsey (Piso_mojado), Nov 14, 2011 21:21

The new Vengeance line of products from Corsair are hitting the market and offering the high quality products that gamers demand. The Vengeance series includes Keyboards, Mice, and Headsets. Corsair sent over a Vengeance 1300 headset; a nicely crafted circumaural headset that offers quality for a moderate cost.

The first thing I noticed out of the box was the slightly angled sides of the headphone and this intrigued me. I was skeptical about the design choice since every headset I’ve ever owned or seen had the speakers in a straight line with the headband. Yet, when I put them on, I was floored by the comfort. The slight angle of the speakers causes them to fit your head and contour to your ears better than a straight design.

The second thing I noticed was the solid construction. While I may not be George Lopez or Dumbo, I do have a rather large head and big ears. I have lost many a headsets to over- expansion of the headband. The Corsair Vengeance 1300 not only had a solid, sturdy build, but also was made out of highly flexible materials that help to keep the ear cups snug.

Our Rating for Corsair Vengeance 1300 Gaming Headset Review (Hardware, PC)
8.5 Feel
The all black look with blue accents has a sleek and stealthy look I found appealing. I especially liked Corsair’s choice to sew the headband with blue thread. A subtle thing that really adds character.
8.0 Usability
Fantastic fit and a crisp sound, but definitely geared more towards the gamers with high end sound cards.
8.5 Value
Definitely worth the $79.99 price tag…. BUT if you got an extra $20 to spare, go for the Vengeance 1500.
8.5 Overall
An awesome headset that will perform well for any gamer.
