Summary: I've never had much luck with gaming headsets. This is 7th pair in three years, and I wanted a pair that would last. So I bought these after reading the great reviews it already had. After a few teething problems with the Amazon delivery itself, I got them unboxed and plugged in. Here's a short list of everything I like about the Razer Blackshark: -The sound is brilliant! -They can cope with bass extremely well. -The microphone is detachable.
Summary: The best sounding headset that I have bought for such great value. The microphone has a small subtle replacement cover so it can be taken outdoors. Unfortunately it isn't a microphone and when you are using this with your phone you will have to unplug it or just have the microphone attached depending on how silly you are willing to look. Microphone is great quality with no drivers required.
Summary: - Very comfortable, but in long periods of use you feel it squeezing a little. - Sound not contained very well, leaks a lot, but it's high quality. - Excellent mic. A good purchase all around, but not exceptional, Could be much better for the money, but i'd say it's worth it. Not by much though.
Summary: I used to have hp-1's which were amazing (only £60 at a clear out) but alas they were worn down by intense use. So i bought these, not the 5.1 i was used to and the bass isn't as amazing yet it is clear comfortable and the microphone is top notch.
Summary: Bought this headset over a week ago now and I have to say that it's pretty good. The packaging, as always with Razer products, is superb. It comes with the typical Razer packet as well as a 3.5mm jack to split the audio and mic jacks. Aesthetically, it looks incredible. The ear cups have a black glossy finish and the green wiring and stitching makes for a great 'Razer' feel. The sound quality is decent.
Summary: I bought these headphones looking for a good balance of comfort, sound quality and a good integrated microphone. Although the pads are relatively large and soft, they still sit on top of my ears (unlike my acoustic headphones) and I find it uncomfortable to wear them for extended periods. The integrated microphone is good, although the attachment that keeps it in place and out of the way when you're not using it has a tendency to pop free.
