Corsair Vengeance 1300 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Analog Gaming Headset
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Great - while it lasts 09/13/2013

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 1300 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Analog Gaming Headset

Pros: Noticeably better sound quality than my other headsets. Note - this is running them off a Xonar DX, see the other reviews below re: running them off underpowered sound.

Plug them into a receiver or a decent sound card, and they sound amazing ... while they last at least.

Cons: After sending in my old Corsair HS1A, which broke about 6 months in ... right where the wire meets the volume adjustment/mute button piece (poor soldering) ... these broke in 5 months ... guess where?

Exact same place. It's a shame, other than the shoddy wires on these headsets, they'd be easily my top choice. But the first time cost me half what the headset cost in shipping to get them replaced, I don't think I'm up for getting burned yet again.

I am very gentle on my equipment, I have a set of cans that cost less than these, which have lasted 8 years ...

I've been a fan of Corsair from their memory + power supplies, never had a problem. But would recommend avoiding these headsets until they figure out how to make them not SO fragile.

Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Alpha 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: By far the best sound quality of the headsets I've owned around this price point. The microphone quality was solid as well.

Cons: Unfortunately, the extenders for the cans are INSANELY fragile. I can't understand the design choice ... I would've been happy with them weighing a tiny bit more and not being SO delicate. Look closely at the pic, you'll see where the extensions come out it's PAPER thin ... they broke after 3 months of light use - by literally placing them gently down on my desk. I was stunned, baffled and I almost never write reviews ... but had to here.

Other Thoughts: I would've given them 5 out of 5 stars ... if not for the utter lack of durability.
