Corsair Vengeance 1300 Headset Review

Main Characteristics
Hardware Secrets Bronze Award

The main characteristic of the Vengeance 1300 is that it is an analog headset. This way, it can be used right out of the box, no installation software required. On the other hand, since it is an analog headset, it does not benefit from the Dolby Digital mix found on most games. The user loses digital sound clarity and fidelity, plus any multichannel effects. The Vengeance 1300 can only play stereo sound, not surround sound.

Figure 5: Padded headband

The Vengeance 1300 can be adjusted up to three inches on each side, and its headrest features a very soft padding. It’s one of the most comfortable headsets we’ve tested. The headrest applies a mild pressure over the ears, which helps enhance the acoustic isolation. We didn’t feel any discomfort after our usual four hours-long gaming session.

Figure 6: Microphone detail

The unidirectional noise-cancelling microphone captures voice with great clarity. It was praised in the midst of all the explosions and intense firefights in our Battlefield 3 games by our fellow virtual soldiers. The microphone is the best feature of the Vengeance 1300 alongside the comfortable headrest and ear cups padding.
