Corsair Logo

Corsair is a global company bringing innovative, high-performance components to the PC gaming market. Specializing in very high performance memory, ultra-efficient power supplies, and other key system components, our products are the choice of overclockers, enthusiasts, and gamers everywhere.

Founded as Corsair Microsystems in 1994, Corsair originally developed Level 2 cache modules for OEMs. After Intel incorporated the L2 cache in the processor with the release of its Pentium Pro processor family, Corsair changed its focus to DRAM modules, primarily in the server market. In 2002, Corsair began shipping DRAM modules that were specifically designed to appeal to computer overclocking enthusiasts. From its roots in  high-performance memory, Corsair has expanded its award-winning product portfolio to include ultra-efficient power supplies, builder-friendly cases, ground-breaking CPU coolers, blazing-fast solid-state drives, and other key system components.

Corsair has developed a global operations infrastructure with extensive marketing and distribution channel relationships. Corsair’s products are sold to end users in over sixty countries worldwide, primarily through leading distributors and retailers.

The market is very competitive and brands, if they want to keep up, need to expand and improve their business practice and Corsair is such an example. A brand known in the beginning for their high quality memory products, they now have a expanded to a much broader spectrum of products, from SSDs to Coolers, from Cases to Power Supplies and more recently gaming mice, keyboards, and headsets from the Vengeance line. Today we will review the Vengeance 1500 Dolby 7.1 USB Gaming Headset and I will be honest, I was very intrigued on what the quality of the product would be like since it’s something very different from what Corsair usually does but since they always proved us they like doing things of an exceptional quality I kind of knew what it would be like, a great product as usual and since Corsair is not totally strange to headsets since it launched the well received HS1 a couple of years ago I expect good things from the 1500.

The Vengeance 1500 is a wired, USB headset. Simple isn’t it? Well yes, there are tons of wired USB headsets out there but what makes this a great headset isn’t seen on a general overview but in the details and we will talk about them further on but before we move to the next page and analyze the headset software I will leave you with the official headset specifications.
