4 out of 5 eggsWorth The Time

Pros: Sounds incredible (+1)
Well balanced audio channels (+1)
Fantastic Sound (+1)
COMFORTABLE! (+1)

Cons: Setup time (Here's the -1 Egg)
Compatibility?
Size?

Other Thoughts: I love these - so much so that I bought a pair of Tiamat 2.2s to use at work.
BEWARE THOUGH - you need an individual-channel-7.1 audio source to make these really worth the time and money. Most CREATIVE cards don't seem to do this, because they mix the channels... learned that the hard way.
If you have the patience to set up this headset, with the millions of different cards, and software out there, then balance out the individual channel volume, it will be worth it. I don't use speakers any more because these are so comfortable and sound so clear I don't even think twice about it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorth the Price?

Pros: -Extremely comfortable leather padding with snug head strap.
-I have owned these for roughly two and a half years and the leather has minimal wear and the integrity of the headset is still sturdy.
-Sounds great after configured (Read cons below)
-Contrary to what others have said I have heard no buzzing in this headset at all.
-Control unit, this is a perfect way to adjust sound and mic volume on the fly in a sleek and small unit.

Cons: -Price
-Braided Cable becoming twisted and slowly fraying
-Retractable Mic wiggles in it's socket
-Hard to see labels on control unit.
-Spent an hour in windows sound menus to get the headset to sound good. I would have to fill up quite a lot of this review to tell you everything I did so I'll just tell you whats wrong at first. Keep in mind most of these CAN BE FIXED with tweaking.
-Low Bass
-Surround sound not being automatically activated
-2.1 mode sounded shallow and muffled.
-Mic picks up everything and has very loud white noise in a near silent room.
-Not a big one but the colors on the audio jacks themselves are very faded making it hard to distinguish where each plug goes.

Other Thoughts: Overall a very good headset but I would not justify buying it do to the price. However I never rate things due to their price so I give it 4/5 for someone who has extra money to spend.
Also if you do buy this headset keep the box. It is a high quality chest like box with a magnetic hatch that is perfect for storing the headset. It's also very useful for if the headset is in your bedroom and then the LEDs on it won't be visible in the darkness.

3 out of 5 eggsA little bit Disappointing

Pros: -Very nice quality build (Hard plastic)
-7.1 Surround Sound
-I like the dial for the sound and mic mute ect.
-Nice braided cable
-Earcups are square, a little annoying but overall a very comfortable headset.
Overall a nice headset for gaming

Cons: -Biggest disappointment is the constant buzzing in the headset while idling. Not very loud but It's really annoying.
-Mic is a little short and is very flimsy
-I switched from a Turtle Beach and the Talkback feature sure is a plus. Not with Razer though, it should be a universal necessity.
-Cables out-of-the-box are very stiff and are rugged (bent in a zigzag motion).
-Is quite expensive for the sound quality. Could get better.
Overall the mic is on the cheap end and razer could have done a better job.

Other Thoughts: Bought with a PreBlack Friday sale. $50 off.
Wont buy another Razer headset sadly.

1 out of 5 eggsOver priced and not durable

Pros: Once your headset gets adjusted to your head you can play for hours and hours without discomfort.

Cons: Sound is not great for the price; quality and durability deplorable .. Mine lasted 2 weeks after the warranty expired (1 yr ) and 2 weeks. One of the drivers on the left ear began to crackle to the point it became unbearable..
Note: is HORRIBLE for Team Speak users..

Other Thoughts: Please don't waist your hard earned money on this low quality components headset. Being a very active FPS I will not recommend this headset to ANY FPS.. Maybe RAZER has other better high quality headset but this is not one of them; over priced and low quality sound... BTW good luck hearing steps from the rear.. You will hear all the sounds during the calibration phase, but GOOD LUCK in real game.. I currently own a Razer Death Adder2013 and a Widow Maker keyboard, they are boot GREAT!!! I highly recommend them...I think is time to move on; I think I have invested a lot of money with Razer, maybe is time for other brands...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Headphones while they last

Pros: The sound quality is amazing. True 7.1 built in with individual drivers sounds great in first person shooters. I am able to almost pinpoint the location of enemies just off of their footsteps.

Cons: I have gone through two pairs of headphones in 2 1/2 years. The first set the microphone died on me. The second pair the left ear cup speakers died and the rear started to get really low. Also there is a buzzing sound if you connect them to USB power on your tower. If you connect to wall power with an adapter then the buzzing goes away.

Other Thoughts: They are a great pair of headphones but you have to really take care of them. They are a bit brittle.

3 out of 5 eggsokay headset

Pros: It has real 7.1 hardware-wise.

Cons: The wire tangles a lot hope a short doesn't happen. Wish it was louder, I put it at full blast through all settings and my tritton headset is still louder.

Other Thoughts: Price seems kinda high.

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
