Summary: Most uncomfortable headphones I have ever owned.My ears hit the inside where the speakers are, as the padding is not thick enough. These are the same as turtlebeach Ear Force HPA2. Sound is good, but not as good in surround as the zalmans I wore out. The bass is great, and they vibrate if enough bass is there.
Summary: I want to like these headphones, felt like a must have being a hardcore gamer and fan of razer. Trust the ratings on amazon, their own site is obviously biased. These are the first decent headsets I've purchased over 20$ and I'm truly ashamed of the build quality. 3 weeks of use and my right headphone blew out. Set aside the sound for a second, and let me elaborate.
Great sound - good looks - but what is up with those screws

Summary: As you can see the reviews are mixed with these headphones. Audio quality is always going to be subjective. I think the headphones sound good compared to most mid range 'phones. For game play and movies the `phones give you a great directional 3D effect. But construction is not subjective. Either something works or it does not. Either it stays together or it does not.
Summary: The 5.1 channel works very well... You'll hear footsteps walking around when someone is trying to ambush you even when you can't see them, so you'll be better prepared.... great sound overall. after a good 3 hours of battle your ears might start hurting somewhat -- nothing a soldier can't take and a minor thing when you're getting excellent sound. The mic is the most disappointing feature of this item.
Summary: pros:Comfortable,These headphones do look nice, though, and the packaging they come in is extremely nice.the first time sound horrible for bad adjusted my sound card settings,but after some tweaking XD ,now they sound AMAZING.
Summary: I bought these headphones specifically to work with BF2. I have only heard great things about Razor in all my years of gaming but I have never owned one of their products till now. First off the sound is good, but not exceptional. The 3d sound is buggy, in building an overhangs you can hear a distinct echo, which sounds great; but if your on top of a tank you can only hear the tank clearly when your facing the sides?
Summary: This headset is built pretty well, and is pretty comfortable to wear for long periods. The fit is tighter than most other headphones, but I found that this did not lead to any discomfort even after a few hours. This headset is able to go extremely loud. It has its own amplifier, and I recommend setting the volume knob quite low until you've balanced all your sound sources.
