While many USB headsets make the claim that they need no drivers to work, an analog headset is about as Plug and Play as you can get. Corsair's Vengeance 1300 is no different and will start working once you plug it in. You do of course lose some of the features of digital sound, no 5.1 emulation on this headset, just stereo sound is available. Hardware Secrets found them very comfortable to wear for prolonged periods of time as well as very portable so for those who find themselves on the road they make a very solid choice. Check out the review here.
"Corsair first entered the gaming-grade headset market with the HS1, a digital model we already tested. Now they put on the market the Vengeance line, comprised of an analog model (the 1300) and its digital equivalent (the 1500). We will test the Vengeance 1300, beginning with a look at its physical characteristics and then proceeding to its performance."
