Summary: I have liked a lot the sound quality of this earphone after some tweaks and adjustments at XBOX Configuration Menu. It's weel made and confortable to wear (by the way, I do not agree with some reviews regarding not fitting on big heads...I use Large Bike helmets for a refference and this earphone has suited me well).
Summary: I'm both and Xbox 360 and PC gamer so I needed a headset that would work for both. After a disappointing attempt with the Turtle Beach XP400s, I figured I'd give the Razer Chimaera 5.1 a try. In short, it does the job well but I needed some extra accessories and there were some quirks and cons to deal with. I'm giving it a 4/5 because of that. Below are the details: Feature Highlights: - AAA Rechargable Batteries.
Summary: its good if you only want to use for game audio and not game chat. I like it myself i use it for xbox 360, but is also compatible with pc for pc gaming. I believe they can work for ps3 but are not chat compatible and that is because they have to be plugged in to a xbox 360 controller in order to use game chat on xbox 360, but does not apply to pc that's just how voip works on a xbox 360. So overall there a good headset and i would recommend them for console gaming.
Pros: great suround sound, very simple controls, bult in eq
Cons: mic is too senitive, game chat volume way to low, a little large
Summary: -- If this stuff is way too long to read, scroll down to the Pros/Cons section. I mostly detail the problems in the lengthier part and provide some small solutions to otherwise offset what I listed as cons for this headset :) Some "make sure to note you have" things as well -- -- Background Information: I received my Chimaera 5.1 headset on Saturday, Oct. 1st of 2011.
