The Corsair Vengeance 1500 v2 provides amazing sound and superior comfort, and features the power of Dolby Headphone multi-channel audio built-in. Experience immersive multi-channel gaming the way it was intended from the 7.1/5.1 Dolby audio. Impressive 50mm audio drivers and unidirectional noise cancelling mic provide high bandwidth audio quality and clear in-game chat. The extra-wide earcup design, with microfiber covers and memory-foam pads, gives you comfort even after extended use.

The Vengeance 1500 v2 7.1/5.1 Dolby Gaming Headset gives you a compelling gaming experience with the accurate audio imaging you need if you’re playing to win.

  • newegg Built-In Dolby Headphone Multi-Channel Audio The remarkable Dolby Headphone technology accurately reproduces multi-channel gaming audio for precise situational awareness and the competitive edge you can only get through positional audio. It also helps reduce "headphone fatigue", which is essential if you play competitively or if you just enjoy playing for hours at a time.
  • newegg Amazing Sound The massive 50mm drivers greatly reduce the overloading and distortion that can occur with gaming headsets that use smaller drivers that aren’t up to the task. You’ll get more accurate sound reproduction, particularly for the all-important low-frequency effects.
  • newegg Superior Comfort The extra-wide, extra deep earcups make the Vengeance 1500 v2 feel as good as it sounds. The memory foam earpads with microfiber covers provide a comfortable and reliable fit that conforms to the contours of your head without binding or pinching.
  • newegg Noise-Cancelling Microphone The unidirectional, noise-cancelling microphone is tuned to capture your voice loudly and clearly, while screening out extraneous noise from outside your game. Said all you have to say? It’s easy to flip the mic out of sight when not in use.
  • newegg Built for 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.

2 out of 5 eggsAudio is WAY too loud!

Pros: Great sound
Good 7.1 virtual surround
Decent build quality
Good mic sound quality


Other Thoughts: Seriously, I'd go as far as this issue being a hearing hazard. Anything above 6% is too loud and can cause hearing damage. If you are considering this headset, DO NOT install the software until this issue is fixed, seriously. I've owned these headsets for over a year and to install the software for the sake of my hearing.

Im giving these headsets a 2/5 stars for that very reason. Its no joke when the issue is as bad as causing damage to your hearing.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very comfortable headset for short to medium long game sessions and a clear crisp mic making for easy communication between friends on voice comms

Cons: Not quite as breathable as other sets I have tried so after several hours straight they become a little uncomfortable but is no big deal with short breaks.

The right cuff of my headset broke after 6 months of use which is unfortunate but corsair support system is amazing and within 5 days of the breakage I received my replacement set.

Other Thoughts: I went with 4 eggs instead of 5 for the simple fact that my set broke otherwise it would have been a 5/5 and the customer service I received was amazing.,.. I would recommend this set or any corsair product for that matter!

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid, will likely break.

Pros: When they work the sound quality is very nice. The mic quality is also above average.

Cons: I have owned two of these headsets for a little longer than 1 year each and they both suffered the exact same failure. For the record I take excellent care of my peripherals and rest headsets on stands when they're not in use.

The wires leading from the headset into the in-line volume controller become frayed and cut the right side sound out completely.

The wires used are about 30 gauge, which is EXTREMELY small, meaning that your natural use of moving the cord around is going to destroy them over time. For me it wasn't the connection to the PCB of the in-line controller that had failed (meaning I could have repaired it with some careful soldering) it was the section of the wires directly before the rubber gasket which suffer the most rub from the movement of the cord.

Repairing this section means breaking the solder to the PCB, cutting the gasket, cutting the nylon wire loom, and removing enough wire to correct the failure and reassemble.

If you have the skill set then your only loss is time and frustration. If not then you get to pay $25-30 RMA shipping for the privilege of receiving a used unit in return 6+ weeks later.

My advice is to take this into consideration before purchasing this headset as you will see I'm not the only one with this exact problem.

My request of Corsair is to spend a few extra pennies per unit and use a higher gauge wire, provide a prepaid shipping label, or a least brand new unit for cost of RMA shipping.

Other Thoughts: Quality is everything!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Headset slightly annoying drivers

Pros: I was able to hear everything with the headset.

Fairly comfortable and ...

was able to stand wear and tear abuse of everyday life (i.e. me dropping the thing constantly).

Cons: A little bulky as previous people have noted.

The drivers are need to run the headset at decent levels.

Windows (the OS; not the company) hates this headset.

Other Thoughts: Besides the initial drivers the whole head set has stood up for a long time.

I works without second thought.

And I wish it didn't fall on the floor constantly.

1 out of 5 eggs3 Years Later

Pros: The headset works, looks great.

Cons: Poor fit for me here, and caused a severe recurring ear bacteria due to the cloth enclosure and poor fit. I have suffered hearing loss and a recurring bacteria, beware the headsets from taiwan. I have yet to find a ENT whom understand that electricity causes bacteria to grow a exponential rates in the ear, and if the bacteria is in the ear expect problems with the nearby nerves. Need some QC on swab tests or something, hearing impaired for life for 80$. ENT's cant find the proof though so this one is up in the air.

The software update slaughtered my headset, it truly sounds bad now. I tried finding the original firmware but its nowhere to be found, and will not override the changes made post upgrade.

Other Thoughts: I still enjoy all other corsair products, just this involves health concerns and complicates medical care diagnosis.

3 out of 5 eggsVery Good, but took forever to ship and to be delivered.

Pros: They are very comfortable to wear on my head.

Sound crisp and clear.

Mic is good.

Can control volume from the cord.

Braided cord!

Long cord.

Got them on sale

Cons: The ONLY reason i am giving this product three eggs is that newegg took over a week to ship the darn thing, and then it took another TWO WEEKS to arrive. That is slower then book rate. Come on newegg you can do better, ive always loved your service.

Other Thoughts: Ear cups get kinda hot after a while but that really isnt a problem. If they were on the ball and didnt mess around i would have given this product 5 eggs.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent G430 Counterpart

Pros: This headset is very good for gaming, especially the surround sound. You can hear somebody approaching you from the rear or sides without needing to scan with your eyes.

The headset is also very comfy, sometimes I forget it's on my head while watching a movie or gaming.

Cons: There are a few issues that I have noticed with this headset:

1. Volume control is not optimized. At 100% you can put them on the desk and use them like desktop speakers.
2. The bass is ok, my previous headset (G430) had much better bass quality than this one. Even with the bigger drivers on the 1500v2. (For gaming it isn't bad, only when listening to bass heavy music is when it is noticeable.)

Other Thoughts: I first got the Logitech G430 headset to replace my aging G330 from Logitech. The G430 was superb with sound quality, however it would give me massive headaches because of the amount of pressure it puts on your head. After a few days I couldn't take it and bought this vengeance headset which is far better in comfort.

Overall, this is a great headset. Gaming is very immersive. Music, while not the greatest, is good enough for me. Defiantly worth the money.

BTW...There is a new Vengeance series out, the H1500 and the H2100. Those headsets have a more modern sound system and I believe fixes some of the cons I shared above.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat but loud

Pros: Their great headphones, comfortable, and built to last.

Cons: When trying to hear whats going on outside of gaming is very hard because the headphones are loud at 2 percent volume.

Other Thoughts: Other then being very loud they're a very great headset built to last and to help you game.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I like the design and durability, and the Mic picks up well

Cons: The volume is ridiculous. Something needs to be done to the drivers. I can tolerate 1/100 volume but 2/100 is stupid loud and I can still hear it on 0/100.
