Razer Carcharias Over Ear Xbox360/PC Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Good at first 06/26/2014

This review is from: Razer Carcharias Over Ear Xbox360/PC Gaming Headset

Pros: When i first received this headset it was replacing a hold Microsoft headset and it was an excellent upgrade. after a solid 3 months of use things started to go down hill

Cons: After about 4 months there was an increasing amount of static feedback. the mic no matter what settings would pick up like phantom noise. after checking the Razer forums they had a solid of that your computer isn't completely grounded and that's feedback from your psu. try plugging it in to a wall outlet for its power. that didn't solve it. tried to get service from Razer and after 2 weeks of run around i was told that its out of service when their website has a year and i purchased a extended from newegg. terrible service and it appears to be a major defect in the product that they don't want to own up to. as i've tried this headset on multiple computers and 2 different usb wall chargers.

Other Thoughts: the headset is comfortable to wear and while it worked with minimal static feedback, tech support is garbage and i would recommend trying something else.

Pros: As a upgrade from my older 9800GTX (may the computer diety of your choice rest its soul). i can say it fits nicely in my NZXT full tower case, pumps out good to great graphic quality on most games and had little to no problems with drivers out of the box. my Asus Sabertooth motherboard accepted it with little to no struggle and the screw holes for the back bracket seems the be off by just a hair but other then that no other problems

Cons: the cooling fan seems to be a bit small for this unit and if you really push it you can hear it. although the fan is a small hum, the screw holes were slightly picky and needed some coaxing in my full tower case. Nvida's drivers do like to complain about games not being optimized to its liking rather then yours (my tv has a slightly off resolution and games don't always know how to handle 1890x1080 so either things are slightly cut off at the top or it wants to complain about not being optimized.) after that i will say that the first time install for drivers was fairly quick. windows on the other hand decided it wanted to update more drivers for the next few hours.

Other Thoughts: Why doesn't this have a quieter fan? prefer a bit more openness on the casing but overall still good

4 out of 5 eggs Both Solid and flimsy at the same time 12/30/2013

This review is from: Razer Carcharias Over Ear Xbox360/PC Gaming Headset

Pros: Very comfortable, I will say that the materials used for this were both well thought of and yet at the same time kind of cheap. The headset is comfortable to wear for long periods of time wither it be while traveling or just long gaming sessions. The mic when plugged in to a properly grounded computer’s USB is very clear and the sound quality is fairly good in comparison to some of the others in its price range. The idea for the metal holders is a good idea vs. having plastic ones that break easily.

Cons: As a big guy I will say that I tend to break things a bit faster then most. Which to say is part of the reasons why this looked both good and bad. I do like the light weight metal that holds the ear pieces the problem is the connectivity to the overall headset seems to be cheaped out on, the holder for the mic seems to want to wander sometimes to where ever it pleases, and the USB that is used for power if your computer isn’t grounded very well has some for a lack of better words uber feedback. Which to say is kind of a problem if you are using a laptop would like to see that possibly fixed. Because using the usb power that comes on my laptop charger for power to cut down on the feedback kind of sucks when traveling with these.

Other Thoughts: overall still a good headset and a welcomed replacement from my previous MS branded set which i got for working at a MS retail store.
