Summary: I thought that I had got a deal on this headset, I was very happy and excited for one they had come early I took them out of the box that they came in and immediately proceeded to try them out I thought that I had got a great deal on this headset but No I got taken for a hella of a ride the seller...
Summary: I've had, rarely, some strange screeching and voice disturbances while listening to someone talking over mumbles. I attributed it to the 3rd party software, but some of the reviews on this site have suggested it's the Banshee.
Pros: I've had these headphones for what seems like forever and they've yet to give me more than superficial problems. For the price range they should be better quality all around, but they manage to be good enough. The fanboy glee of having SC2 gear, especially pilotesque headphones, more than makes u...
Cons: The structural design leaves something to be desired. I can't imagine anyone asked for detachable foam or mic, and the needlessness of those qualities is made evident daily. I can't count the number of times I've knocked off the foam with hardly more than a breath.
Pros: Awesome sound quality. Before I was using an older Razer headset (not even sold anymore), and the difference between the two is night and day. Before I had to pump up the volume on skype or ventrilo to be able to hear people, but now I have to lower the volume effects I had on everyone lest my ea...
Cons: It is imperative that you install the firmware before using it. I'm not sure why there's so many negative reviews for this thing, but it all sounds like issues that razer says don't exist if you install the firmware.
Summary: A huge disappointment. It collects dust now, looking cool in the corner. And like many, many others, I too searched online and found other owners experienced the same problems.
Pros: Stylish, comfortable, Starcraft II stuff - all the reasons why fanboys buy things.
Cons: Purchased directly from Razer (it was the pre-order, actually) and when it finally arrived, it only took three hours of ownership before the screeching static revealed itself. Nothing we did worked. Download and redownload. Connect, disconnect, reconnect.
Summary: Pros -The headset fits great and doesn't exhaust your head and ears over long periods of use -You can customize the colors with the Razer SC2 custom utitily program -The mic is adjustable and rotates ~ 270 degress Cons -If you don't update the firmware, the people you call, whether skype or vent,...
Summary: Highly disappointed by Razer on this one.
Pros: comfortable, works for listening to music/anything not using the mic.
Cons: There seems to be loud bursts of static sometimes when I talk, and it appears to be bad quality of the mic. I have researched up on it, and it appears lots of people seem to have the same problem. Don't buy these is you plan on talking through them.
