Default Razer Carcharias or Corsair Vengeance 1500?

I will be playing Battlefield mostly. Does the surround sound of the Vengeance 1500 work well in BF3? I heard the Bass in the Vengeance 1500 is really quiet? Is this true? Out of these two (ONLY), which should I buy? I won't have a sound card. I have seen Linus' unboxing of each and they both look good, however that's all those videos are; not reviews, unboxing videos. Thanks

I know you said only between those 2, but you might find a Sirus onsale somewhere, very nice usb headset, thought the analog connections sound better than through the usb control pod.
Just thought i would throw it out there.
No experience with either of those 2 headsets so other than that I will shut up now.

I agree SG, IMHO the CM Storm Sirus is MUCH better than either of those headsets.

The 1500's are VERY less than optimal so if it has to be between those two I would go with the Razer's.

I'll also note that they took quite the beating the other week when the wife was choking and I hurled them hard on the desk.
I was pretty impressed for how hard they slammed down.

Do any of you have experience with these in Battlefield 3? How does the 5.1 fare?
