    I have the Corsair Vengence 2000 which is the wireless version. I like them a lot.
    Sounds is good and they are very comfortable. Mic works very well too.
    The volume control on the 2000 is in the headset itself (since there is no cable).

    I didn't mean for you to get the wireless one. lol
    Since the 1500 and 2000 are basically identical in every other way, I was just commenting on how I like the 2000. Your experience with the 1500 should be very similar.

    Maybe you should think how if the corsair vengence 2000's are good, then what must the 1500's be?

    I have the 1500s, and as kreij says, its the same thing, just my volume and mute controls are on the wire.

    I got them as a trade up since the 1300s (I think they were, too lazy to look) broke. I've had them for around 6 months or so now, and even after I ran them for a 200 hour break in, they still seem to be getting better. Good bass with the 40mm drivers, clean top end. Others say the MIC works well. They are very comfortable to wear, even long term, but they are a bit weighty and may take a bit of getting used to.

    Headphones that completely cover the ear are usually heavier, so it's important that the headband is made very comfortable. I think Corsair did a fine job with that too. The fact that the cups rotate is also nice in case you want to move the headband forward or backward on your head depending on where you find them the most comfortable.

    I just chose the wireless ones so I could hear my character die horribly while I was taking a leak or getting a beer. :laugh:

    PS : I've not owned either of the other two, so like Peet I can't comment on them.

    Newegg has them for $94 (pretty close to your price), but there is a $10 rebate from Corsair if purched at newegg. Hunt around and see if Corsair has a rebate in your area or for Amazon in Italy.

    ^i would go with 1500. ive never heard of the other 2, me and my best friend own the 1500s and as far as im concerned both of us have nothing bad to say. I think youll fall in love when you install the drivers and use that dolby 5.1, it even allows you to have custom profiles and comes with preset profiles for gaming, music, and movies.

    The plantronics aren't that comfortable, due to the square cup design. I had an old pair like that and promptly returned them, I couldn't stand them after about 5 minutes.

    I'd go with the corsairs myself.
