Summary: I'm a huge fan of razor products, but this one is not impressive. The headset is not comfortable, it squeezes my head. If I make the sides longer then it sits too far down on my head. I am using it at work with my soft phone and the battery's need to be recharged every hour to hour and a half. 12 hours expected battery life? Lies. Also it does not come with a RCV to 3.5mm converter for your pc. For $170 you couldn't include a $1 cable Razor? Really?
Summary: Besides taking almost 2 weeks to get it when it said it would take 5 to 7 days. the box just kinda fell apart when i got it but that's all about the shipping. Now about the product. The product is some what misleading. When they say "wireless gaming headset" its completely wireless for the PC, not the Xbox 360. You still need to plug it in the controller to chat with friends. Make sure you buy the audio adapter for the Xbox 360 otherwise you can't use it.
Summary: Overall not worth getting because it is way to uncomfortable to enjoy using.
Pros: Good sound quality and mic wireless
Cons: terribly uncomfortable and painful to wear for extended periods of time. The connecter to the controller is awful and can be disconnected just by twisting it. It feels pretty cheap and the build quality is not good at all.
Two stars - relatively functional with poor quality

Summary: Initially purchased since it was the only 5GHz headset on the market for XBOX. Microwave caused issues with 2.4GHz headsets so I needed a 5GHz headset. Worked ok for the first 6 months or so and didn't have issues with the microwave interference, but overall quality is quite poor for a headset in this price range. Within the first year, it started exhibiting many issues. Naturally, after the 1 year warranty cutoff, it is useless.
Summary: These are by far the tightest pair of headphones i have ever worn. i have a big head and i wear glasses, and its uncomfortable. The connector on top wobbles and if you don't have it juuuust right, it wont charge, which would be fine except you can't use it and charge it at the same time.
Pros: -Works -Looks nice -Crystal Clear audio
Cons: -Battery Life Sucks -Connector is terrible -Squishes my head -No charge-and-play option
Summary: For clarification, I purchased this item from GoHastings. I am a very large fan of Razor products, and despite all of the reviews regarding bad integration with PCs, I opted to give this a try. Well, the reviews turned out to be correct. The frequency interaction degraded the performance, essentially creating white-noise feedback that perpetually interfered with any sound. I'm sure this works well with consoles. I attempted to return the product to GoHastings.
Summary: When i got it all hooked up, i had found out that the left ear was broken and would not work, i don't know if it was because i have an HD tv,but the left ear has a static sound so can someone please reply maybe for a refund or a return?
Cons: Where do I even start. First off, the 'Audio In' port is very fragile. I put a 3.5mm jack into it and all I get is buzzing noise through my headset. When I put it into the port, it doesn't even 'click' in like most cables do. It feels loose and of very poor quality. The only thing that works is Xbox LIVE communication via microphone. I can hear others just fine too. But even then, the headset automatically shuts off after 10 minutes of not detecting any game audio. So...
Summary: the head set is too weight, I have neck pain after 5 minutes. I like the base and the idea but when you put it on for a few minutes it hurts :S the sound is acceptable. they should send the PC cable at least I was so excited...
