Lightweight, behind-the-head design
The Vengeance 1100 gaming headset rests lightly on the ears for audio that’s heard, but not felt. Clever ergonomics help keep the 1100 firmly in place, so your audio gear never interrupts your gaming, chatting, or video sessions.
40mm audio drivers
The 40mm drivers — extraordinarily large for a lightweight headset — deliver audio with fidelity, accuracy and range that lets you really get into the game and hear your friends and opponents with detailed clarity. And since it's not always about gaming and video calling, the carefully tuned audio will do justice to your favorite music and movies, too.
High-sensitivity noise-cancelling cardioid microphone with flexible boom
Whether you're barking instructions to your teammates or chatting with old friends, you deserve to be heard. The microphone's tuned to capture your voice loudly and clearly, while screening out distracting background noises. It flexes to fit your face, and flips out of sight when you're not using it.
Connect using 3.5mm analog cables or use the included USB adapter — it's your choice.
USB and analog connections for universal compatibility
The dual 3.5mm connectors work with virtually any sound card and any PC with onboard audio. Or, attach the included USB adapter for great-sounding audio with a single connection. It's PC and Mac friendly and great for gaming on the go.
Soft-touch materials and elastomer headband lining
Vengeance 1100 feels good in your hands and good on your head. The advanced elastic polymer design gives you get a fit that's snug and reliable, without the binding or pinching you might experience on lesser headsets.

Reviews from the Web
Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.
The many pitfalls and potential comfort issues with the 1100 headsets make them impossible to recommend for anyone at all, period – but the 1500 headset is a solid product that offers good quality for the price, albeit with some restrictions on audio inputs.
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.
It is our opinion the Vengeance 1100's aren’t ideal for hardcore PC gamers who love the ability to hear people sneak up on them, or like heavy bass. They are however something we feel casual gamers would not mind using as they will provide a very decent audio experience when playing.
While the Vengeance 1100 is fussier to wear than a circumaural headset such as the Asus Vulcan ANC, it’s far more comfortable than any of the budget headsets we’ve attached to our skulls over the past couple of years. Given that its audio quality also puts many far more expensive headsets to shame,

Pretty good headphones for the price. Haven't had any issues with them falling apart or breaking like other people have had. (Corsair seems to have fixed this). I mainly got them to use as a cheap mic for my pc.
This Headset is not worth the retail value of $40, I would suggest the price to be around $25 or $30. The headsets are great but all the sound escapes and disturbs people around me. If you are a budget headset buyer and you want superior quality REAL gaming Headsets then I suggest the Gamecom 780, for only $10 more it is a bang for the buck.
Bought these on sale ($5 AR), and here is my user experience with this headset when used with PC, tablet and PS3. First off, the heeadset does sound pretty good given how cheap it was. Both the speakers and mic sound clear. I tried this with analog and the USB adaptor and both sound fine on a PC. The USB adaptor does not really work with a PS3, in that if you plug it in the PS3 will notice it, however it wont allow for both game sound and voip simultaneously, basically it will give you only voip. It may be possible to get both game sound and voip, if you obtain an analog headphone Y splitter to plug the headphones both into the usb adaptor and back output of the ps3 at the same time. Personally i just used an old Triton PS3 adaptor from a dead Triton headset and plugged the headsets analog ports into it to test it out on my PS3. The main issue i have with the headset is that its not very comfortable for long term use. Eventually after a few minutes the headset starts to pinch your ears to the point that you will want to take them off. There is zero adjustment on the fit, it assumes one size fits all. I have what would be considered a normal size adult head, and i have used around the back headsets before with no issues, this corsair headset is the first one that has pinched my ears, and for this reason i would avoid buying these as a primary headset. Having said that I still think that its a good cheap headset for short term use.
It's an ok product but for 5 bucks no regrets here. The fit isn't the best, it feels like it's going to tilt off the back of my head. For some reason I can't get audio on youtube videos when I plug it in. But overall, for 5 bucks, not much complaint here. It does the job kinda. I'm using it at work for teleconferencing at desk.
I've had 2 of these now in a period of 3 weeks, the first pair broke just at the end of the curve behind the ear inside of 3 days. NCIX was wonderful and exchanged it for another pair which lasted about 2 weeks before breaking in exactly the same spot.
The plastic on the side with the microphone broke and the wires are exposed it broke just by putting them on. I guess there was just too much stress on em from repeated on and off. Also many people have had them break on them on the first day or within weeks. I would only suggest to pick them up on a sale like I did and with a gift card as well so yeah invest in a sturdier pair of headset or stick with these and just be extra careful.
A little bit disappointed in the comfort of these headphones. After wearing them for a while I feel pinching on my ears, which I see from other reviews isn't uncommon. Happy with the sound quality and microphone, but could be more comfortable. I think that adding a section of the same adjustable material they used for the microphone to the headphone area would make this much more comfortable for many more users.
