"At $130, the Sirius is definitely more expensive than other stereo gaming headsets, but it's definitely worth it if one is looking for surround sound capabilities that aren't really too shabby, and versatile connectivity all for a reasonable price."

stack up against the Corsair 1500? There you mention it is quite spot on with the 3D sound, but they are stereo speakers.
Hi Bora,

My colleague Chris found out that the stereo setup in the Vengeance was indeed great at simulating surround sounds, something I always had a bit of difficulty with. If you want the best possible sound localization, I would recommend looking at something more advanced, like the Psyko 5.1 headset.

That being said, both the Vengeance 1500 and Sirus are great products. Buying one over the other really comes down to personal preference. The sound quality offered by the USB connection will be similar, but the sirus control unit offers more flexibility. However, the Sirus software does not offer an equalizer and the various adjustments to the environment. All in all, if you have a need for analog connectivity or have a decent soundcard, the Sirus would be nice. Else, the Vengeance 1500 would be a safer bet.
