Introduction
Hardware Secrets Bronze Award

Corsair first entered the gaming-grade headset market with the HS1, a digital model we already tested. Now they put on the market the Vengeance line, comprised of an analog model (the 1300) and its digital equivalent (the 1500). We will test the Vengeance 1300, beginning with a look at its physical characteristics and then proceeding to its performance.

The Vengeance 1300 is a big headset with padded ear cups. It has a 50 mm driver and can rotate on its own axis, making it easy to store and transport. The ear cups are covered by faux leather.

To break the all-black color scheme, there is an elegant blue ring around each ear cup. From the left side, the microphone can be rotated to an upward position when the user is only listening to music or to simply transport and store the headset.

The cloth-wrapped cable ends in two minijack connectors (3.5 mm). There is a control unit in the middle of the cable with a volume wheel and a button to mute the microphone. Different from the HS1 and the Vengeance 1500, the unit on the model 1300 doesn’t feature lightning.
