Pretty Awesome Set of Cups

John E., Newegg
4 September 2013
  • Summary: Honestly for the price I got it I don't mind it at all. To me these things are a 5 star rating, I already had some extra cables laying around and knew I was going to have to rig it up abit to make it work in my system, but to someone spending 200 bucks only to find out they need to buy more cables...
  • Pros: First off, I'd like to admit that I didn't get my Chimaera from Newegg. I was able to get a pair second hand for a great deal. That being said i'm still fairly pleased with the overall performance. I received it with what i think were the original batteries and drained as they were they still pro...
  • Cons: The set up to get surround sound on PC is a bit laborious. If you have an optical jack I suppose you just plug it right in and you're good to go. But if you want 5.1 surround with a pc and you only have rca cords then it takes a bit of tinkering. This is what i've come up with, hopefully a Razer ...

Decent headset if you find it cheap

adam c., Newegg
24 November 2012
  • Summary: A decent mic for supporting both 360 and PC. I only prefer them because they natively support both 360 and PC. Which slightly outweighs the fact that I can't use optical audio and the mic at the same time while on the PC.
  • Pros: Has optical audio, supports xbox 360 and PC. The sound quality is very good on these cans. Supports multiple sources. 5.1 audio. Uses standard AAA or rechargeables so no battery replacement. I personally find it comfortable, but maybe I have a small head.
  • Cons: You only get 5.1 surround when using optical audio, which they hide in the fine print of the site. But the mic does not work on PC if you are using optical audio for some odd reason (a major con). You need to connect via a cord to the xbox controller for voice chat. The headset boom is very flims...

No Pivot but great sound quality

Charles J., Newegg
29 May 2012
  • Summary: Overall this is a great headset, but the lack of pivot for the earpieces means a less than optimal fit.
  • Pros: Great sound, excellent base/charger design, digital input, range - can walk all over the house.
  • Cons: Earpieces do not pivot. This headset is not as comfortable as the Logitech Wireless Headset F540.

Not bad, but falls short of expectations

Colin C., Newegg
21 March 2012
  • Summary: I want to love this headset, but a few things just fall short, despite Razer's claims to the contrary. First, the batter life is literally half of what it claims. Razer says 8 hours, but I barely get 4 before it starts beeping at me.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality for movies and games. 5.1 surround sound works very well. Comfortable. Rechargeable with the option to also use regular AAAs. Good reception with little interference.
  • Cons: Voice chat volume not nearly loud enough. Voice volume control is not truly independent from main volume. Battery life is about half of what is claimed.

Razer Chimaera 5.1 Gaming Headset for XBOX 360

Trevor K., Newegg
5 December 2011
  • Summary: This product made me want to step on a small child. The first unit that came broke within 24 hours. The auto mute function when you put the mic up stopped working and the mic would remain muted even when it wasn't suppose to.
  • Pros: Sound - I have used several Turtle Beach headsets. I did a side by side comparison with the DX11, which is about $70 cheaper than this headset. The sound quality was slightly better on this headset over the TB DX11 but the volume doesn't get that loud on these compared to the TB DX11's. You can h...
  • Cons: Cheaply made in my opinion. The overall product isn't cheaply made but the cables they provide are 100% junk. When I am paying this much for a headset i don't expect to get completely junk cables. The xbox live mic cable is cheap and i had to swap it out for an old turtle beach one i had laying a...

Lackluster, quality not befit of a $200 purchase.

Evangeli, Amazon
26 November 2011
  • Summary: To preface: I've never owned a headset for my TV or XBox. After enjoying my roommate's Tritons for an hour, I decided to purchase my own game console headset. (I already owned a Logitech for my computer.) I purchased my Razer Chimaeras last year in anticipation of MW3 and ESV: Skyrim.

Decent

Yaniel A., Newegg
16 November 2011
  • Summary: For the price and the quality of the headset I would have just waited for the Triton Warhead 7.1, but then again I didn't decide to wait because of the 279 price tag.
  • Pros: -Sound is very clean -Rechargeable Batteries included -Base looks really nice -Haven't experienced any interference till now
  • Cons: -For my personal preference it could be a little louder -I had some Triton Detonators and they would make your ears bleed of how loud they were. -Mic is over sensitive, have to tweak it in the Live Settings to be bearable

Chimaera 5.1

Melanie Martin, Amazon
7 January 2015
  • Summary: Habe es nur am PC genutzt. Ein sehr Hochwertiges, Optisch sehr ansprechendes, gut verarbeitet Headset. Sound ist Super, Mic könnte besser sein. Der 5.1Sound ist der Hammer. Es drück nichts, zieht nichts, sitzt 1A Aber, und das ist auch der grund warum ich 2 Sterne abziehe, man kann es nicht wärend...
