4 out of 5 eggsOkay

Pros: Great sound.
Great Mic.
Sleek but simple design.

Cons: Very uncomfortable, hurts my ears about an hour after wearing them and gives me a headache.

The usb cord has a very weird texture and rubs against the shoulder and makes a really loud noise through the headset, sometimes affecting my ability to detect movement location.

Headset cuts in and out of steam calls, but works well or other programs such as Skype and TS3. Downloaded drivers and went through steam trouble shooting and still having the problem.

Other Thoughts: Good mic but for the money I would recommend investing in something else.

2 out of 5 eggsLooks can deceive.

Pros: First off, i am an owner of this headset, I just happened to buy it on another unnamed website. i value the New Egg community and that is why i am writing a review here, and not there.
This headset look BEAUTIFUL, probably one of the best looking headsets I have seen, There are many options for customization, and such. The mic quality is very good for a headset, but that does not make up for the few, but very big cons of this headset.

Cons: Despite what the product is called, the audio is NOWHERE NEAR 7.1 surround. sure its surround, but it sounds very muffled, I am guessing it is a lack of treble or the vacuum created by the ear cups. That brings me to another point, the ear cups are made of leather. This would not normally be a con, but the leather makes your ears start to sweat after 1-2 hours of use. The last con is the very slight hissing noise that is present in all the audio you will hear with this headset. No matter what you are listening to, there is always a hissing/static noise in the background as far as i know there is no way to fix this without external devices.

Other Thoughts: This is yet another product that costs more because of the brand. I have never purchased a Razer product that i was completely satisfied with, there is always at least one lingering issue that makes using it, a much less enjoyable experience. You are not paying for the headset, you are paying for the brand.

3 out of 5 eggsOkay, but not for everybody.

Pros: + Sound quality is pretty good (compared to my last pair of headphones, some generic $20 headphones)
+ Mic sounds really clear!
+ Headset is adjustable to fit to your liking.
+ Headset folds to make storage or traveling easier.
+ Headset has a really nice appearance.

Cons: - These things are very uncomfortable (at least for me). I have plastic-framed glasses, and after having these headphones on for about an hour, it feels like pins and needles, and I just end up putting them around my neck. This might not be a problem for you, but it was a problem for me.
- The bass is very overpowering. Again, this might not be a problem for you if you want a lot of bass. I'm no basshead, however.

Other Thoughts: This is a nice gaming headset, but it's not a headset for everybody. If comfort is not a problem for you, then I definitely recommend you get this headset. Otherwise, I would save your money for a better headset.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Headset

Pros: They are comfortable and sound amazing. The 7.1 is essential in gaming. It makes games go from flat and bland to extremely dynamic. You will feel like you are there.

Cons: The mute button on the mouthpiece is small and difficult to push at times. I wish it had a more accessible location.

Other Thoughts: Razer products never disappoint.
