Horrible build quality

Anonymous, Newegg
29 January 2015
  • Pros: Good sound for avg user and mic
  • Cons: The build quality is horrible. After a about 30-40 weeks the usb just fell out for no reason what so ever, had to restart CSGO and tab into Teamspeak to turn my sound and mic back on. But I fixed this problem by taking the usb out and pluging it back in. After about 10 weeks of this process the u...

User Review

Christopher K., Newegg
21 December 2014
  • Summary: There are better options in the same price range.
  • Pros: Excellent audio quality (once you play with the levels). Durable construction.
  • Cons: Ear pieces are too small, after a few hours of wear the pressure causes pain to my ears. Adjusting to a looser fit only causes the headset to drag down ears, not lessen pressure. The Razor Synapse cloud is a piece of totally unnecessary software that requires registration and internet access. Syn...

Extremely uncomfortable

Anonymous, Newegg
7 November 2014
  • Summary: These headsets are VERY uncomfortable. I'm not talking about just wearing it for a couple hours. I'm talking about just maybe an hour. I do not have a big head and the cups/headband squeezes my head very tightly and its hurts alot.
  • Pros: - Good mic
  • Cons: - If the cord rubs on your shirt, it will make a loud noise in your left ear cup. Very annoying - Uncomfortable after a short period of time

Great whilst it lasted.

Jeffery C., Newegg
28 October 2014
  • Summary: Overall I'm very disappointed in this headset, I have a complete razer set up and have mostly sided with razer when it comes to peripherals. Now in the future I will be purchasing other headsets that offer much more for a similar price.
  • Pros: Sound quality is great, it's not superb, but its sound is better than other $50-$100 headsets that I've tested. It's aesthetically pleasing if you're into the razer look.
  • Cons: After a year of average use, and EXTREMELY careful handling, this headset is a disappointment. The mic is average quality, with poor noise cancelling qualities behind it. After about a year of average use, and as said above with superior care, the right headphone is no longer operable. You can to...

LOVE Razer, but i HATE this headset.

Antonio R., Newegg
2 January 2014
  • Summary: ALL of these issues would have probably been solved if the headphones them selves had a volume control switch outside of a program on yourr computer like most headphones do but this one insists on using Razer Synapse to control it's volume wich is cuasing a ton of issues for me.
  • Pros: Great sound, bass, and the 7.1 virtual surround is legit.
  • Cons: the drivers through Razer synapse are HORRIBLE!!! i always have to sync the volume between the windows volume control and the Razer Synapse volume control every time i disconnect the headset, close Razer Synapse, or just simply turn off my computer if the headphones are left at a lower than 100 v...

Bleh

Samuel L., Newegg
11 December 2013
  • Pros: Looks kewl.
  • Cons: Other than that, not too much. I wanted to try another brand apart from my Logitech G935's, and stumbled across these. The sound quality, in comparison, is meh, the bass is bad, and the inner earphones keep popping in/out. Cheaply made, bad product is bad- go seinheiser or Logitech.

Excellent sound...if you can stand to wear it.

Edward S., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: My previous headset was USB connected and I never had any compatibility issues with it, but for some reason, this one will not produce sound when I play Mount & Blade. Having tested most of my library, this is the only game that doesn't work, even though older games like Warcraft 3 run fine.
  • Pros: - Surround sound is excellent. I can clearly hear players scoping in CSGO from a mile away. - Retractable mic is nice.
  • Cons: It just plain hurts to wear it. First problem is that the headset itself is really built to squeeze the head. Anything more than infant size is under constant pressure, rather than at a state of rest like other headsets (I'm hoping that hugging it around my football overnight will loosen it up) S...

Was warned about Razer quality... should have listened

Matthew H., Newegg
5 October 2013
  • Summary: I'm so, so disappointed that this is already not working. When working, the microphone was a vast improvement over what I used to own and the sound quality was fantastic. I just can't believe that in one month it's already broken.
  • Pros: - Amazingly comfortable - Great sound for game and music - Thick, braided cord that is plenty durable - Looks pretty darn cool
  • Cons: - I've had it for 5 days over my return policy and the microphone and the left ear piece do not work. I've tried switching the USB ports, etc. but nothing works. - No inline sound control. Everything has to be done from the windows menu which is a pain.
