Summary: Great headset, it looks amazing. Many reviews complain about it being flimsy but it seems to be of sturdy construction. The base stand / charger is an amazing idea and I love it. The microphone really is to sensitive though, I have it adjusted all the way low and my voice still seems loud over Xbox live. The headset does cause me comfort issues though. I never forget I am wearing it and after an hour of gameplay I get a headache; no matter how I adjust it.
Summary: Great concept and design, but it's just a big hassle most of the time. I have it connected to my PC and Xbox and it ha the ability to change channels with the push of a button but getting it set up to work correctly was a pain in the ass since it can only receive one digital optical and one set of red/white R/L stereo hookups. In both situations, then you need another hookup for the mic to work and you end up using a minimum of four different cords hooked up properly.
Summary: Headsets don't last. They have a defect where the volume continues to drop. Razer customer service is also awful and don't help at all. They swapped my headsets with refurbished ones, the wireless tower came in damaged, and the headsets after 3 weeks, continues to have the volume problem.
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: I was very skeptical about spending this much on a headset and going with one that was strictly wireless. It took a little bit to get everything set up and working correctly due to the fact that this headset has the ability to be paired with other Razer Chimaera headsets and thus makes figuring out the whole mode thing a bit of a hassle.
Summary: After seeing how this product only have one review and it was a negative one, I thought I would leave mine, considering how much I loved these headphones. Yes, this product is a set of headphones, not a headset. With that in mind, lets get on with what I think about them. I bought these through a different online vendor, starting my freshmen year of college. Once they arrived, I instantly loved them.
