Blue Yeti vs. Corsair Vengance 1500

Blue Yeti vs. Corsair Vengance 1500

Blue YetiJust picked a Blue Yeti from Guitar Center…This should be fun…

I had to get rid of my Corsair Vengeance 1500. There’s an issue with the drivers that causes a Humming/White Noise sound. I did ton of research about the Corsair Vengeance 1500 and I don’t know how I missed this issue. There’s several well written threads on the Corsair Forum about numerous individuals having the same issues for well over a year. In my opinion, Corsair should have at least made a stab at trying to fix the software/driver issues.

Corsair Vengeance 1500The problem can almost be resolved by switching the Driver in Device Manager, in Windows7 and Windows 8, too the Microsoft USB Audio driver. Then you have to go into the Playback Devices / Corsair Vengeance 1500 / Properties / Levels and mute the Line-In and Microphone. However, as mentioned by several others in the thread with sensitive hearing, the noise is still audible, but at a much lower level. To hear what the Corsair Vengeance 1500 sounds like, go to Recording Devices / Corsair Vengeance 1500 / Properties / Listen and select Listen to this Device. You’ll hear it.

Seriously, it’s almost like the speakers them selves were being treated like an Audio Source in addition to the actual Microphone on the headset. I did read that some people RMA’d their Corsair Vengeance 1500 and got a replacement Corsair Vengeance 1300. I had considered getting a Corsair Vengeance 2000 initially, but decided against the wireless Connection due to some general issues around audio quality on wireless vs wired devices. I have no experience with the Corsair Vengeance 2000, but it was almost the same price point as the Blue Yeti, so…

Hopefully this Yeti will clear up that issue. As far as the 7.1 Surround sound feature on the Corsair Vengeance 1500…OMG I was playing Minecraft last night while testing the drivers and I could literally hear the Creepers hoping down from 10 blocks away. And the directional sensitivity of Skeleton and Zombie sounds was unreal! It wasn’t like, “Oh there’s a noise to my left or right. It was like there’s a Zombie 6 blocks away through that wall.” I almost would have preferred to keep the Corsair, but it just be overpriced headphones at that point. I already own a pair those LOL

The Yeti comes in with such a high regard for quality, but then again the Corsair Vengeance 1500 did too.

For now I’m going to do some testing and see how well it works…

Hopefully you guys will notice the difference in quality, or I’ll be getting a refund.

FTY!
