Two Years Later

Michael A., Newegg
9 January 2014
  • 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.

  • Summary: After about 5 months the Mic died and I had no way of replacing it. I am stuck to using a webcam mic which picks up everything in my house.
  • Pros: - Very Good Sound Quality over long periods of time - Comfortable for long periods of time - Sturdy Design - Mic Quality is excellent while it lasted
  • Cons: - Mic is Detachable which caused a lot of problems when your gaming which is what this headset is designed for - No mic replacement

Works for me!

David K., Newegg
5 October 2012
  • 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.

Odd possible fix

Mariesa T., Newegg
27 August 2012
  • Summary: if you have this try turning off the lights and see if it fixes the mic. if you are looking to buy this for the cool lights. you're better off getting something else.
  • Pros: Feels great, good sound quality
  • Cons: The random microphone spiking gave me problems for the longest time. but once I turned off the lights it hasn't happened since.

  • Pros: -Easy Physical Controls -Decent Sound Quality -Comfortable -Quality Cord
  • Cons: -Very Big -Initially Heavy -Short Cord

Initially, zero recognition of problem

Juanita H., Newegg
1 May 2012
  • 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.

no

Mariesa T., Newegg
18 February 2012
  • 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.
