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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Headphones

Pros: Headphones sound GREAT. The quality is above and beyond. 5 Speakers in each earcup is high quality. These are not your average headphones. Music is A+ and Gaming is A+. Love them!

I have tested headphone after headphone (USB and Non-USB) and Razor, oddly because some of their products are total garbage, did an outstanding job with these headphones. I'm a bit sad they haven't gone back and re-done these into a newer version. I'm also very happy they have 3.5mm jacks as I hate USB headphones.

Cons: Pricey

Other Thoughts: If you do not own a SoundCard that supports 3.5mm jacks, don't buy these. Also the sound card NEEDS to be 7.1 Audio. Using only a few of the jacks (i.e. Laptop) is NOT going to give you high quality. I have seen reviews of people bashing these headphones and not properly reviewing them (one guy did a YouTube video of them using his Laptop, not smart).

3 out of 5 eggsNot quite everything i expected

Pros: Very comfortable , nice cloth cord , looks cool , can put out sound , volume adjuster, hide away mic,

Cons: price , constant light static, volume adjuster knob seems wobbly ,bulky , surround sound is weak ,very little bass

Other Thoughts: these headphones are decent pros over weigh the cons but i feel like they should have no cons for $187.00 . even then i feel like they should have priced these head phones at like $140 or $150 . if you have the money to blow i would say these are most likely best headphones on this site

2 out of 5 eggsGood sound and true 7.1

Pros: Support 7.1 native in the headset.

Has a great controller to mute, adjust volume for all channels and enable pass through for 7.1 speaker systems

This has held up really well I have used it heavily for 1 year.

Cons: Big one: side channel is VERY VERY VERY soft.I took off 2 eggs for this I feel this is a big deal. I RMA'd this out for the same reason it was tested and returned. I am not sure if this is just unhappy with my MoBo 7.1 card or not. I am running it on a Asus Extreme IV.

Retractable mike seems flimsy but I have had no problems with it.

After long play sessions it puts pressure on my ears causing me to adjust often. (minus 1 egg)

Pros: Decent sound

not too heavy

visually appealing

great packaging

you either have to stuff your ears in or squish part of your ears between the pads and your head.

requires a 7.1 sound card for full effect

noticeable noise with no input

short cable from controller to headset.

mic is flimsy

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.
