We awarded Corsair’s HS1 USB headset a 9 verdict last year, remarking that its huge 50mm drivers, solid and comfortable construction, and $100 price tag added up to a surprisingly good value for a freshman effort. The one element that denied the HS1 a Kick Ass award was its uninspired—nay, downright ugly—industrial design.
Corsair’s new flagship USB headset, the Vengeance 1500, retains all the strengths of the HS1 and eliminates nearly all its weaknesses.
There's a ton of competition in the gaming headset market, but that didn't deter Corsair from rolling out its new Vengeance line. Corsair says these headsets "reflect our desire to build the products we want to use and can't find anywhere else," and what might be most appealing to gamers are the price tags. Each one costs less than a Benjamin, and one of them doesn't even cost half that much.
