Corsair Vengeance 1100 Gaming Headset Review

We are very happy to say that Corsair have maintained the high standard set by their top-end 1500 headset with the Vengeance 1100.  Despite being considerably cheaper than the 1500, the build quality of the Vengeance 1100 is at a similar level.  There isn't any aspect of the build or design of this headset where we feel that Corsair have cut corners to reduce quality.

Corsair has struck a good balance between professional and gamer-enticing aesthetics with this headset.  This, combined with the all-round good performance means that you can use it for work or play without issue.  One small complaint we have is the lack of any dedicated software to tweak the sound balance and other audio options like the one that was present with the Vengeance 1500.

Despite being an excellent neckband-style headset, the Vengeance 1100 does possess some of the negative traits that plague headsets of this style.  After a couple of hours use, the headset can become uncomfortable where the neckband sits on the top of your ears.  This seems to be more of a problem if you wear glasses when using the headset, though, as they can conflict.

The Corsair Vengeance 1100 can be yours for the very reasonable price of £34 at Amazon.co.uk.  At this price we feel it is a good buy as it offers a winning combination of solid build quality and performance.  We would urge those who are serious about gaming to consider an over-the-head headset like the Vengeance 1500 as they are more comfortable during long gaming sessions and they offer useful features such as virtual surround sound.

Pros

  • Solid build quality.
  • Good sound quality.
  • Attractive aesthetic design.
  • Braided cable.
  • USB Sound Card Dongle.
  • Reasonable value.

Cons

  • Not as comfortable as most over-the head headsets.
  • No software configuration utility.

KitGuru says: A great option if you're in the market for a neckband-style gaming headset
