This review is from: Razer Tiamat 7.1 Surround Sound Over Ear PC Gaming Headset
Audio Quality - These boast a very full emersive 3D sound environment Music and game sound great you seriously can hear everything in your music... you just have to learn how to set your sound up a bit. Instruments and voices sound separated and clear as if the band is playing live for you. : )
Looks - They just look plane awesome!
Features - Individual volume control over every channel
Construction - For the most part is sturdy, with the exception of the mic boom.

Hope this helps anyone who already owns this product and has the same board that i do, looking for some help on setup!
Hope this helps folks! : )
The retractable mic build construction is just of horrible engineering quality. C'mon Razor you could have done way better than that!
And Not really a big con... but the whole Driver cover thing doesn't appeal to me at all i like the look of the Tiamat 2.2 better (Solid Black Cover).
There is an optional magnetic cover you can place over the sides of the ear pieces that cover the diver windows, but they don't hold well so i just leave them off. Bu no biggie.
Don't believe any of the reviews that are talking bout how the sound is not up to par, because seriously well over half of the reviewers on this site have absolutely no idea what they are doing. This headset is easily the best audio i have ever heard out of a gaming headset.
I have my on-board Realtek HD audio from my Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 Motherboard, and i have no problem getting a nice clear booming sound from it. I do in fact would like to purchase a better mic, perhaps a table mic, so i can keep the built-in mic retracted.
I would have give it 4 stars Overall because of build Construction. But, if it could give individual scores on each aspect of this set then it would look like this...
...but i love the audio quality so much that i cant help but give them a 5 star rating : )
