4 out of 5 eggsGreat Surround Sound

Pros: Awesome Surround Sound
True 7.1
Light weight
Long cable
Easy setup

Cons: Could use more bass
The ear cups are actually surprisingly small
Very Soft ear cups

I'm not a huge guy but not small either, my ears are normal size for my head. However, the ear cups are very small and the top of my ears bend when fitting them into the cups, they bend just enough to hurt after about 2 - 3 hours of straight listening.

Other Thoughts: I was in the market for a new headset that I could use for gaming. Keep in mind and I used to Bose Quiet Comfort, but those aren't surround sound, but they have set the bar for quality sound, and nothing yet has come close. I wanted something I could use while gaming that would help me be a bit more immersed in the game while playing 3D, and they do a great job. They could definitely use a few more settings and some more punch to the bass for those action games/movies.
NOTE: I did not buy these from Newegg, I bought them from another online store because they were $140 and Newegg wont price match unfortunately. However I do all my PC parts/accessories through Newegg, and thought I would write a review for these.

I would definitely recommend these if you can get them $40 or more below original retail price. $200 is a bit pricey even though they are true surround. I have had better quality and better bass, but not in a true 7.1 headset.

5 out of 5 eggsworth every dollar

Pros: sound is amazing, even when plugged into the mobo and not using 7.1 the sound is better then most headsets out there.
Awesome bass response and clarity.

build is solid yet flexible. has a long and sturdy braided cord, the ear cups are heavily padded, acts like a passive noise canceling feature. after a month of 4+ hour daily use the ear pads show no sign of wear or thinning. feels just as tight as the first day i wore them

in-line control is great, its nice and big with plenty of sound level settings and mic volume.

Cons: Nothing i would take away an egg for but there are things that a potential buyer should know about.

you can plug this into your motherboard, but you NEED an audio card with 7.1 channel support to use the full surround sound modes. also, can not adjust individual speak volumes with in-line control unless using 7.1 mode. you can still adjust overall volume and mic volume though.

the ear cups are extremely snug. the padding is thick, but it takes a while to get use to it. The first week i couldn't wear them for more then 1 hour before my ears started to hurt so anyone with big ears best beware.

the LED's stay on, even when you shut down your PC. Best thing to do is cut power to your surge protector or unplug the headset USB.

Other Thoughts: Great buy for anyone willing to invest the money for a good sound card. just be aware of the quirks before you buy so you are not surprised by them. The sound quality really is amazing

5 out of 5 eggsawesome sound

Pros: I love the sound. bass is great and you can adjust to your liking. very comfortable and not too heavy. I love the auto adjustable band or whatever you call it. Love the fact that they adjust themselves left/right/up/down. that is always a great plus. the cable is extra long but a couple of twist ties fixes everything.

Cons: you need to have a good true 7.1 sound card and those are very hard to find now.

Other Thoughts: Razer had a list of suggested cards but it is no longer there. my mobo has 7.1 sound but I would rather have a sound card. but had I known this problem I still would have bought the headset as in 5.1 they're still awesome

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Great Comfort, Sound is amazing. Setup was painless with minimal tweaks. Price is great for the quality and comfort. Returned my A30's and bought this and have never been happier with a headset.

Cons: none I can think of. The mic setup was the minimal tweak. But, after that friends say sound is astonishing with almost no background noise. I have a 3 year old son, there is always background noise.

Other Thoughts: Cost and Quality make this a best bet. It is also IronEgg eligible. Nice perk to have them standing by the product.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's good, not great, but good

Pros: Sounds great
Fits my head and my friends (He has a small head)
Good price for what you get
Mic sounds pretty good
Braided Cable, very strong, wow

Cons: The side panels you can put on the side of the headphone falls off if you move your head too much
Mic doesn't mute its self when retracted
The cable is a bit too long for me since my PC is right next too me, but for some people it will be nice.
There was a small scratch on the side of the headphone (It's not that big it's very small and can't see it if you're not looking for anything)

2 out of 5 eggsI thought EA and ATT had bad CS

Pros: Great sound when they work. 7.1 works but due to the position of the speakers surround sound gets lost.

Cons: head phone construction is terrible. Solid piece plastic for the head band that connects each ear piece that has a brittle spot because they notched the plastic at a 45 degree angle so its prone to snapping. The wire loom is glued to the housing so should you drop them and the land on the ear piece you cant replace the band. All the headset has to be replaced which leads to another problem.

Other Thoughts: Repair. Razer customer service is terrible. It takes 7-8 days to get beyond the first CS rep to get to the RMA department. then they tell you it will be 4 days for them to read it but sometimes longer.

4 out of 5 eggsUnique and inspiring headset

Pros: Much of what I like about this headset is being able to take full advantage of my fatal1ty titanium sound card. The headset performs admirably and I can successfully achieve audio immersion after only a short time of use (your ears have to get used to it). The alternate audio pass-through is a nice feature as well to retain versatility on your battle station; it's easy to switch between the two. Very comfy ear cups and head band, I forget I'm wearing it after I get immersed.

Cons: Switching to your pass-through disables the mic which is a bit annoying if you are trying to speak on a voip but want to listen through your speakers. There are ways around it but it involves too much fiddling with my setup.
DO NOT BUY IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A GOOD QUALITY SOUND CARD, MY WORD OF WARNING. THIS HEADSET WOULD NOT A GOOD BUY FOR A SKIMPY CARD.

Other Thoughts: The speaker balance feature is not something I really use much but it works alright. I feel that it's a rather pointless feature and excluding it could probably cut down on costs a bit. Who needs to adjust the balance of their rear speaker inputs on the fly?? Maybe if your traveling and plugging into your buddy's 7.1 surround card?? lol

4 out of 5 eggsVery Comfortable Good Sound

Pros: Comfortable headset you can wear for hours, Really sensitive microphone and amazing quality for a headset. Speakers are above average, speaker passthrough is a unique feature, and the inline sound control is convenient. Volume is good in 2.0 mode. The bass range on this headset is really great.

Cons: When in 7.1 mode volume is low, but when I have it in 2.0 mode I can get it as loud as I need/ want. The sound quality is good but it really isn't worth the price, you can get better audiophile quality headphones for this price. The sound positioning isn't much better than virtual surround. The plastic side covers fall off easily, there is no option to turn off auxiliary lights on the headset or controller.

Other Thoughts: Although I cannot get some apps as loud as I would like to, the volume is sufficient in 7.1 mode. Feels really durable, It's worth the price but I was expecting sound quality to be better and sound tracking to be more realistic than the corsair vengence.

5 out of 5 eggsNice ear candy!

Pros: I bought this headset because I like surround sound when I am gaming, and I am spending the summer vacation visiting with my parents. A pc surround system--not an option at their location.

I am quite pleased. The Razer Tiamat 7.1 delivers a true surround sound experience. I've played Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag and Elder Scrolls Online and am happy with the performance of this headset--that NPC, other player, or waterfall sound effect behind you on the right sounds like it is behind you on the right and shifts accordingly as you change direction. That's what I wanted.

I was also pleased that it plugged right in to my Alienware X51 computer and works fine...no need for an external sound card.

The headset is comfortable.

Cons: pricey, would not recommend if you are looking for a booming set of cans to listen to music

Other Thoughts: It comes with a microphone which I haven't used. I guess I can't speak to that issue, pardon the pun.
