5 out of 5 eggsOne of the better gaming headphones.

Pros: Physical sound drivers make 3D sound locating better than virtual / simulated 3D sound.

Excellent for earlier COD games such as Modern Warfare 4. Black Ops muffles positional sound to prevent users from taking advantage of players without headphones.

BF3 / BF4 / Hardline's positional audio also works great for these headphones.

Games with high ambient sounds or scripted "scare" sounds come through with greater realism and direction. Dead Space, Resident Evil, Silent Hill etc...

Cons: Buzzing when using USB ports built into the Motherboard.

Buzzing is removed when using a powered USB wall wart as they are called (phone charger).

Often on sale / Black Friday, that's when I would pounce on these.

Have to use the 7.1 for full effect, otherwise it's a waste of money, so invest in a soundcard if your motherboard does not have a built-in 7.1 audio chipset. I.e. if you don't have Green, Pink, Grey, Black, and Orange inputs for Audio (blue is line-in), get a sound card.

Heavy, so you should position yourself with good posture to avoid cramping / stiff necks.

Other Thoughts: Great product even though Razer's taking hits on release quality products.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat headset

Pros: Comfortable, great sound.

Cons: Price,

Mic seems cheaply made, i feel like I'm going to break it. Others on Team speak say the mic is very low. I have adjusted the setting but still have trouble with the mic volume.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good headset. I would have expected a better made mic for the high price point

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Headset

Pros: Extremely good headset, Great sound and comfortable. I've owned just about every headset Razer has had to offer, and this one has lasted me the longest (usually I get a lifespan of about 1 year before they break in one way or another)

Cons: Mic is kinda loose and kinda cheap-ish, but it actually functions perfectly.

Other Thoughts: I use the built in 7.1 on my Sabertooth 990fx and it works great, some people will say you need an additional 7.1 surround and maybe it would sound better, but to me this works perfectly and sounds perfect.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The headset is amazing. Its comfortable, the sound is absolutely immaculate. The mix amp isn't too large, it isn't heavy. The headset was fairly simple to set up and simple to understand how to change it to how you like/want it.

Cons: No problems at all.

Other Thoughts: I was reading many of the reviews just before i had purchased it. many people were sating that the bass was lacking or there was a constant buzzing sound. I however did not have the buzzing sound and im sure the reason the bass wasn't good enough for some people was because you hadn't had the correct software (Realtek audio manager works fine, perfect in my opinion)
But i would agree that it is pricey, but well worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat set of Headphones

Pros: Very easy setup. Make sure you enable 7.1 in windows. I've read reviews that these headphones are lacking bass, but I beg to differ. These things BUMP! Tested with multiple Bass heavy songs that many tech sites use to test bass and was thoroughly impressed. Best with sound card, or a motherboard that has 7.1 built in. Very clear and crisp sound. Great range and none of the echo you hear in "virtual 7.1."

Very comfortable, not too heavy, and still comfortable after hours of play. Chord is very thick and solid and overall, very solid build and product. Mic folds into earcup very nicely, and has decent mic quality.

USB control pad works nicely and cleanly designed.

Cons: None that I've found.

Other Thoughts: Got it for $175 and it was well worth it.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great!.....for 16 months

Pros: Great directional sound

True surround sound drivers

Looks sweet

Cons: Warranty blows

Can be uncomfortable with long term use

Other Thoughts: I loved this headset for over a year. Sound in games was excellent for a pair of cans. I generally don't believe the digital 5.1 and previously owned a Logitech G35 that was pretty good, but not nearly as good as my speaker system. I always preferred Logitech 5.1 surround sound systems, but I needed to limit the noise due to my wife complaining. So, I bought these hoping it would be just ok.

I was surprised at how amazing these were at directional sound, especially if you get the right settings for each direction. Its got a sturdy design, good base and pretty comfortable and combine it with a good x-fi soundcard and you get some great directional audio. Worked great for CSGO and Skyrim. I gave it two stars because it was good sound, but I did have issues with warranty and company (see below)

I was happy with them for 16 months and then all of a sudden, the sound started popping. I did as much testing as I could, but have come to the conclusion that the cans are the cause. Can be really bad if audio is turned up, almost unbearable. Not sure what exactly is causing it, but with music and some in game noises it will "pop".

So, now I have a $170 paperweight. Its a little unfortunate that Razer wouldn't support their expensive products for more than a year. Pretty pathetic and I should have known better before I bought it. If you want to have a product that will last more than a year, go with the Logitech products. The sound isn't as good, but you can save $100 and get a pretty good set of cans that will have a 3 year warranty. Ya, 3 years with Logitech and 1 year with Razer. Which is a better policy for the customer? Razer told me I'm basically "sorry out of luck" with this issue. >.> Pathetic.

1 out of 5 eggsBuzzing Sound

Pros: Great packaging.

Cons: Buzzing sound that can't be fixed. I should of listened to the other reviews. I have Rampage V MOBO, latest drivers, but nothing could stop the buzzing sound except mute.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound.

Pros: I am going to start by saying that I have held off on the review of this because I've had a lot of up and down moments with these and while the end result is the main thing that matters, I do want to go over a few things for those who may be looking into getting these.

The end result is amazing sound, and great clarity to your surroundings. I play CoD and CS and I find it significantly easier to position myself based off of the sounds heard in game. Far better than some of the Virtual 7.1 headsets i've had in the past.

For music, with the help of months of tweaking, i've come to hear true sound quality. Not necessarily saying its the best as I plan to get myself of high-quality beyerdynamics soon.

I am able to swap between the speakers I have and the Headset, through the audio knob connected to the cord of the headset. Through this, there are the controllers for all of the separate drivers in each earcup that allows extreme personalization of the sounds you with to hear.

They are also comfortable for extended usage. And the Mic is retractable.

Cons: While there may be alot in terms of cons, most of them can be work-arounds.

I will agree with most that this headset has a low amount of base. But the work around is just having a good sound card set-up. I personally have the standard on-board realtek 1150 which is great for this headset. It has allowed me to work around this easily. The problem i feel is that most people treat this like a headset software-wise. When I plugged in my set, i've come to set it as a speaker in terms of the realtek drivers that I have so it can treat it like the TRUE 7.1 that is is. In addition to this, ive gone through tons of tweaks with the equalizer, the driver control on the headset, and the speaker boost. I've given up on using the equalizer but I have turn't the sub-woofer control on my realtek driver to a total of +10db. While you may not enjoy this sound, I on the other hand love my base. Also I've used the driver controll on the headset and turn't down all of the earcups except the subwoofer, which is left at max. These settings have given me great clarity in games and in my music.

TL;DR I invested ALOT of time into tweaking the sounds to specifically what I sought.

The right earcup for me; under extreme base, will distort the sound a little. Sometimes not audible, but it can be annoying at times. But this is possibly due to the fact that ive turnt my base up to the max.

The earcups, in my personal opinion, are hard to clean.

The mic quality is bad, which is normal for most headsets but somehow I expected more quality given the price tag. Don't let it scare you away though.

When my speakers are plugged into the headset drivers and the speaker is on, there are a large ammount of interference sounds that get played out of the speaker when it isn't in use. Work-arround: Turn off the speaker when its not in use.

While it sounds great, don't try to use the other modes. The sounds a diminished in 5.1 mode i feel. And its worse if your sound card is set to 5.1 or stereo.

Other Thoughts: Overall, great headset. Make sure your on-board sound card can handle it or buy a dedicated sound card. And play with the settings, turn on Base Management, Play with the speaker fill. Change some of the equalizer settings, or use room correction.

These have also turn't me into a bit of an audiophile. Beware of the daaark side.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: This is the best headset that I have ever owned. I have had several in the years before and this one blows the rest away.
This headset is not technically a headset from a computer setting standpoint. For those having trouble, try setting this up as a 7.1 surround speaker system. Also get the k-lite codec pack for further tuning.
This headset works best with a sound card that has built-in amplified channels.

Cons: Rough use will cause a bit of wobble with the mic but it still works good.

Other Thoughts: I have the Soundblaster Zx card and I will admit that it was a royal pain to trial and error setup this system. My best advice is to try the setting mentioned in the Pro's section.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Headset

Pros: Simple controls, good sound, great for games. This headset has great sound and playing games is awesome with it.

The controls are awesome and the ease of switching between the speakers and the headset is a great feature. Well setup as a whole.

Cons: The Price is a bit steep. The only reason I bought it is because it was on sale.

utilizing drivers can be a bit clunky. I still need a sound card to optimize it, though.

The comfort is not always there (after long sessions it can become uncomfortable).

Other Thoughts: I would buy it again, as the sound quality is awesome. I didn't have any static that people are talking about.
