3 out of 5 eggsDangerously good

Pros: The microphone is really good, doesn't pick most of the annoying sounds even on a continuous transmission. The speakers have a nice quality sound with a decent bass.

Cons: I've been using this for a month and it literally started digging a hole into my right ear. It's extremely irritated and almost bleeding. I can even feel a small crater and my ears are not big at all. At first, I would remove the headset and and have a slight itching pain for a few seconds, nothing to make a fuss about but it's just not normal anymore.

I play game for very extensive period of times and I thought this product would accomodate me perfectly since it's made "for gamers by gamers", I guess I was wrong.

Other Thoughts: Nice green lightning

1 out of 5 eggsRMA sends refurbs even for defects on practically new products.

Pros: Decent headset.

Cons: Round ear cups = pain.

The 1 star is because Razer sent me a refurb for an RMA where the defect developed within 30 days of purchase instead of a new product.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Gem from Razer.

Pros: This headset is very comfortable to wear. It has a solid build with easily adjustable sizes. The surround-sound is high quality, and the synapse software is very easy to use. Overall, this headset is very much worth the money.

Cons: The default volumes are very loud, but the headset allows tweaking to achieve the perfect levels for you.

Other Thoughts: I am an avid Razer supporter, and this headset is a great addition to my collection.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat headset!

Pros: This head is awesome! Here are a few reasons why:

1. The headset is extremely comfortable, even after hours of use.
2. Everything from games to music sounds great with these.
3. The microphone sounds nice and its easy to adjust.
4. Even the packaging is high quality!

Cons: The only issue with this headset is that it can be pretty loud. 50% volume is very loud, but it isn't much of a problem to fix.

Other Thoughts: I'm happy I bought this headset. It works just as it should! I recommend you get one yourself.

5 out of 5 eggsAll A Gamer Needs

Pros: Wow, let me just say i've owned a lot of Surround Sound gaming headsets, and this one just takes the crown.

To start off, the packaging is great. This may seem minor but if you've ever bought something like a turtle beach, those are just impossible to get unboxed. Razer just presents their product super well.

The sound is just superb, end of story. Easily customizable and installation is a breeze. Basically nothing but good things.

Its super comfortable to wear, the surround sound is well implemented for virtual surround and the bass is really nice. The design of the headphones overall is very nice.

Cons: No in-line volume adjustment. Its not super bad at all, as one adjustment in software is needed because the sound is too loud to start off with, but volume control can never go wrong.

Other Thoughts: Its Razer's best headset, really. All the way from the megalodon 7.1 to this now. Razer has delivered their best gaming headset. Look no further for another gaming headset, the king has arrived baby.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat headset!

Pros: This headset is a passthrough powered usb headset, with pretty good audio range. The soundstage is VERY good for gaming, after using the calibration setup that is on the synapse 2 software I can accurately tell where gunshots are coming from during gameplay. They are EXTREMELY comfortable to wear, even for a very long period of time (I have medium sized ears) and they are VERY good at noise cancellation. Overall fantastic.

Cons: If you wear them wrong (IE backwards) The headset WILL stab you in the top of your head... I did have to stretch them for a good couple hours before it was comfortable.

3 out of 5 eggsGood at first... But...

Pros: When the mic was working, it had really nice sound quality and mic quality, i really like the retractable mic.

Cons: 5 days after the RMA replacement date, the left side doesnt produce any sound anymore. bummed out that i cant replace it, but be wary when you buy this product. try to get 2-3 year warranty or something.
