Trials Ahead

Here at HardwareZone, we have an established set of audio materials that we use to evaluate the merits of any audio product. Considering the naure of  the Corsair Vengeance 1500 headset, we added in a couple of extra tests. Our usual MP3 Tracks and movies were retained, but we also added in games like Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty and Battlefield 3 on the PC as challenges that this product would have to overcome.

Obviously, our overall testing process encompassed a wide variety of extra content as well. But for the sake of consistency and in order to provide a benchmark to compare the headphones with other audio products, we will be presenting our findings from our standard test materials.

Formal MP3 Audio Track Testing:

  • Hotel California - Eagles
  • Sail on Soothsayer - Buckethead
  • Melt My Heart to Stone - Adele
  • Elements of Life - Tiesto

 

Formal Movie Title Testing:

  • Swordfish
  • Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

 

Video Games Testing:

  • Battlefield 3
  • Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty
