3 out of 5 eggsA decent headset

Pros: I make it simple, Good build quality, decent sound quality (better if you play with options in synapse), although the lower mid-range tends to become a bit muffled.

The mic is Clear.

Cons: I could go on for hours about how uncomfortable these things are, but here are may two major complaints.

-The material between the driver and ear needs to be thicker

-Should've gone with an ob-longed design to shape more to your ear.

There are no excuses for these design flaws.

Other Thoughts: Now mind you, I've been using a combo of my MDR-V6 headphones along with my X-FI Xtreme Music sound card.
I had to pull it out when I got GTX 570 3GB because of the way my board was deigned.

2 out of 5 eggsHorrible build quality

Pros: Good sound for avg user and mic

Cons: The build quality is horrible. After a about 30-40 weeks the usb just fell out for no reason what so ever, had to restart CSGO and tab into Teamspeak to turn my sound and mic back on. But I fixed this problem by taking the usb out and pluging it back in. After about 10 weeks of this process the usb finally gave out and spilt in half. I know this is some what my fault for not foreseeing what was gonna happen. But I expect a world renowned company would build have proper build quality.

I will never buy a single product from this company every again.

3 out of 5 eggsgreat but buy with caution

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Headset

Pros: Easy set-up
Very Comfortable
Microphone Is retractable
Many options and great integration found in Synapse 2.0
Very Stylish and Durable, two qualities not found in most headsets
Noise Cancelling
Sits Very well on anyone's head
Tethered cord
Great Price for what I got

Cons: It suffers from the same problem many headsets have, my only con is that the headset doesn't have an in-line volume dial or nob, I knew this before I purchased the product so I'll leave my review at 5 eggs, however this small addition would be greatly appreciated.

Other Thoughts: This is a great product and I would recommend it to anyone, and If you posses the funds go purchase the Chroma Version,

1 out of 5 eggsWhy even make these?

Pros: 1. You can listen to music, watch movies and play games with them. It come with a mic so you can also talk to your pals.

You can also do this just as well with a 5 dollar mic from and a 5 dollar pair of ear buds.

Cons: 1 It's like listening to music through one of those headphones you make with your friends as a kid with two plastic cups and a piece of string except the plastic cup telephones have better base.

2 There is no surround sound. It's no better than any other pair of headphones and the virtual surround sound is a marketing gimmick.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy these.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent audio quality (once you play with the levels). Durable construction.

Cons: Ear pieces are too small, after a few hours of wear the pressure causes pain to my ears. Adjusting to a looser fit only causes the headset to drag down ears, not lessen pressure. The Razor Synapse cloud is a piece of totally unnecessary software that requires registration and internet access. Synapse software audio component is overly complicated and not user friendly. Competitor software is simpler and more effective at controlling audio hardware.

Other Thoughts: There are better options in the same price range.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Headset

Pros: Headphones sound quality is over the top, Mic sound quality is amazing as-well, they look cool as hell and the durability is not bad.

Cons: The Synapse 2.0 is pretty glitchy and it crashes from time to time. Hopefully they will fix this in the future and if they did already by the time you're looking this review turn this post into 5 stars.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound!

Pros: - Great Surround Sound! (Except Things behind you are quiet)
- Long Cord
- Braided Cable
- Comfortable (View Cons For More Info Though)
- Look Great
- Mic quality is great
- Very Loud Sound
- Easy to set up

Cons: - Surround Sound Is Quiet if things are behind you
- If the cord touches anything it is VERY loud in the left ear cup
- Ear cups are a little small (My ears aren't very big either)
- Extremely tight right out of the box (They loosen up a lot)
- Mic mute button is in a weird spot
- No volume wheel (No problem if you have one on your keyboard like me)
- Retractable mic is hard to pull out
- Mic is hard to set up with Skype. Skype sometimes wont see it

Other Thoughts: This headset is great for the price. I only paid $60 for it because I had a coupon. This is probably one of the best headsets for the price it's at. I used to own a Logitech G930 which is ~$120 and I would rather get this over the logitech one if they were the same price.

4 out of 5 eggsPowerful and clear

Pros: DJ online radio, picked these up to replace average headsets. Got to say these sound excellent. Mic is explosive and responsive. Didn't expect the quality and comfort. For the price these perform as well as the big ticket items if not better. I would buy them again.

Cons: USB is only as good as your sound card. Having to switch back and forth to different sound situations becomes a time wasting practice (minus the one egg). Software should include some type of script to avoid changing sources but hey for the price most people will benefit.

Other Thoughts: Tired of working with average, this is a step up from any headset I've ever owned. USB works but you rely on Windows to manage your streams. Overall after some poking around, this has become a big hit in my studio.
