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.

2 out of 5 eggsBroken right woofer after less than a 7 months

Pros: -Extremely comfortable
-Great for gaming, the 7.1 surround sound works as accurately as it should
-Looks cool and produces great sounds (While it lasts...)

Cons: -Poor Mic design
-Right woofer making a loud crackling noise after 7 months of use (See other thoughs)

Other Thoughts: I really like this headset a lot but it turns out the right sub speaker is going out and it makes this horrible crackling noise and just doesn't produce the sound it did when I got it. I was never rough with it and I didn't drop it or expose it to extreme heat or cold it just.. Started having issues.

The headset sounds great while it's working and I fully recommend it but, I can't really say how the build quality is on these. They feel pretty sturdy but if one of the primary components like a speaker starts going out I don't know what to think. Especially for $180.

I already submitted an RMA claim, just sucks that now I have to pay to return it and hope that I don't get some refurbished one that some fat sweaty dude was using.

3 out of 5 eggsTiamat 7.1

Pros: Awesome surround sound, once you get the settings tuned It is quite amazing for sound and build quality.

Cons: Not comfortable for large heads. ear cups are small and get hot. My previous headset was a Razer Carcharias which was the most comfortable headset so far I have used bar none. Debated on the Megaladon as a replacement since it shares similar construction but went all in and bought the Tiamat 7.1instead for the better true surround sound. Great headset but could be more adjustable for larger heads..

Other Thoughts: If I had it to do again I would have probably bought the Megaladon. Cheaper and much more, much more comfortable for log wear. The Megalodon style frame with the cloth soft cups should be updated with same technology as is placed inside the Tiamat headset. That in my mind would be a slam dunk..

4 out of 5 eggsTiamat Review

Pros: They sound fantastic for gaming once you get them fine tuned to your needs.

Completely noise canceling.

The speaker switch on the control nob is nice for when you want to switch from headphones to speakers with ease.

Durable and I like the retractable mic boom. Microphone sound quality is just fine for a headset.

Long and well-made cables like most Razor products I have owned.

Cons: I'm writing this review after using these headphones for a long while...

For the price they should have used a more comfortable material for the head strap and ear cushions. If you use these for an extended gaming session they will get a bit uncomfortable. Nothing unbearable but it's noticeable. The head strap leaves indentions in my head which is kind of annoying but I deal with it.

The sound is disappointing out of the box until you spend time adjusting the individual sound levels to your preference. This took me a good couple of hours. My 7.1 sound card app made this relatively easy though. If you don't have a dedicated 7.1 sound card with a decent sound level app, good luck to you.

The "USB power" required me to plug in directly to a surge protector. My motherboard was not providing enough power it seems. This caused a strange echo noise effect until I switched to the usb-to-a/c power. A quick Google search will show you this is a widely known issue with these headphones.

Next is the control switch/nob thing. Not sure what to call it. It's a nice controller BUT not all of the controls are LED lit which requires me to either turn a light on to see or use my phone to see some of the nobs. Not a deal breaker but for $200 I would expect all of the controls to be LED lit.

Lastly is the microphone. My only pet peeve here is that you cannot use the mic if you have your speakers enabled. You can only use it while in headphone mode.

Do I regret purchasing these headphones? Absolutely not. I do enjoy them for the most part. Although for $200 they should be significantly more comfortable and easy to set up. I hope this review helped anyone who is thinking about purchasing these headphones.

4 out of 5 eggsSounds good to me

Pros: Sounds good, nice bass response, mic is not as bad as reviews say.

Cons: The only con I really have is that with my Realtek HD audio on my motherboard, I have to tweak a couple of settings every single time I use them in order to make the bass show up.

Other Thoughts: 4770K

16GB RAM
Asus Maximus Board

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Headset. Needs to be adjusted

Pros: Very thick and comfortable padding.
Not too heavy.
Sound quality is great.

Cons: You will need to adjust the sound in your audio manager to get the best sound.
Mic quality isn't great.
Mic construction feels very cheap.

Other Thoughts: You should buy this headset if you want good sound quality. I would recommend a separate mic.
