LOVE, hate, love, HATE! Works great--- when it works!
6 December 2013
Summary: I bought 2 of these things.. One brand new, one refurbished.. my brand new one doesn't work for more than a few games before the battery starts beeping in my ear.. unfortunately for me that is the one I use for myself.. The other was a gift and it seems to work much better.. Don't get me wrong..
Summary: WOULD NOT RECOMMEND! Ended up returning them to Razer for a refund. Can't speak to the Xbox functionality as I only bought it for use wtih my PC.
Pros: Great bass response, very pretty lighting, and very durable - they feel like they could be dropped plenty and survive just fine. Good wireless range of about 20-30 feet, provided I don't get between the base and my refrigerator.
Cons: Where do i start? The microphone would not work on my pc. I think it was a problem with the headphone jack on the base station because my other headset worked just fine on every port. The sound quality was only marginally higher than that of the Carcharias when compared with both the optical and ...
Misleading, no 5.1 / Digital Optical For PC Connectivity
9 January 2012
Summary: I originally thought I had a DOA headset because I could not get the mic working on my PC while connected to digital audio. Razor support was no help and said that I had a 'defective product'. So Amazon quickly shipped me a replacement.
Summary: This $180 upgrade from my old stereo chimaeras was supposed to be good but turned out to be my worst purchase of the year with malfunctioning connectors out of the box and distorted audio on Toslink/Digital (The L/R Analog worked though) so no 5.1 was observed during the three months it worked.
Pros: *It worked for 3 months... *Looks amazing *5Ghz Wireless Signal *Comfortable on my head
Cons: *Distorted audio *Stopped working after 3 months of constant usage for gaming/music *5.1 Surround sound on these are a joke (other thoughts) *3.5mm Connectors don't work *Razer tech support refused my warranty even with proof of purchase
Summary: Dont buy it if you plan to use it with a PC, although it is advertised to work as both, you lose some features connecting to a PC..
Pros: Works good with Xbox, acceptable quality, nice and sturdy.
Cons: Not so good with PC. Agree with Lou below, instructions just plain wrong for PC connection, cant use 5.1 audio and microphone. No mention of this anywhere in any of the documentation or reviews. Took forever to get support to help me, about 15 emails totally to find out what Lou discusses in anot...
Summary: Nachdem ich dieses Headset einige Monate benutzt habe, kann ich nicht zu einem Kauf raten. Folgende Fehler sind meiner Meinung nach unverzeihlich: - Das Headset ist viel zu steif. Für Menschen mit kleinen Köpfen ist das vielleicht nicht schlimm, aber mir drückt es so stark auf die Schläfen, dass ich...
Summary: Das Headset selber sieht sehr Schick aus und sitzt super bequem. Vom Sound war ich anfangs sehr überzeugt doch dann wollte ich das Mikro testen und das Dilemma begann. 5.1 Sound und Mikro funktionieren zur selben Zeit nicht am PC. Doch das hat mich nicht allzu sehr gestört.
Summary: Habe mir das Headset vor einigen Tagen für den Pc gekauft. Pros: +Edles Design + Verpackung +Spitzen Soundqualität auch beim Musikhören (Bässe) +Große Reichweite (Kann mich ohne Probleme auch auf den Balkon/ins anliegende Zimmer setzten eine Rauchen) +Tragekomfort (auch nach Stunden drückt es nicht...
