Conclusion: On the other hand, It’s price is $149.99. The 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound isn’t much impressive if you’re using it with something that doesn’t support Multi-Channel sound. Although if they had provided any kind of management software with the headset, then managing the equalizer and other stuff would have been pretty useful. It is expensive considering the other comparable products in the market.
Conclusion: In conclusion, the Razer Megalodon has the looks, style, build and comfort of a proper kick ass gaming headset but it is let down by its sub-par audio performance which is a complete deal breaker. For $149 there are superior alternatives available. You might as well look that way.
Summary: Deficient only in its ability to upmix stereo content, the headset is the clear winner in the personal surround sound arms race. Its attention to comfort, sound quality, game compatibility and tournament readiness leave little else to be desired.
Pros: Incredibly lightweight, Comfortable, Positional audio works great in newer Windows, Individual controls over all 8 channels, Driver-free installation for eSports tournaments and cross-platform compatibility, Hard shell case included for traveling
Cons: Expensive, Poor 50% compatibility for Windows XP, Mic has background hiss even at lowest sensitivity, Audio in 7.1 mode sounds a bit hollow, Unable to upmix stereo content to 7.1 or decode Dolby Pro Logic II audio, Blocks system controls in Mac and XP
Summary: The Megalodon is yet another good product from Razer, but it is only barely worth the Recommended Award in my opinion. Yes the USB Sound card is nifty but it comes at almost the same cost as an X-Fi XtremeMusic sound which is miles ahead in terms of sound quality and features. For the avid gamer on the move this is probably the best USB headset available at this time, but it is still nothing spectacular compared to a set of quality headphones being powered by a mediocre...
Pros: Comfort, USB Sound card, Feature rich, Driver less, Market leading sound quality for a USB headset, Brilliant microphone, Well built, Virtual 7.1 surround sound
Cons: Virtual 7.1 surround sound, Expensive, Shows fingerprints and dirt fast

Design and features This monster is clad in black. Headband, earcups, inline control et al. Let's take the IN line control pod first, as its really shouting out with all its little blue LEDs.

Razer Megalodon Review: A Truly Mindblowing Headset
8 July 2010
Summary: The Razer Megalodon is definitely an amazing headset suited for long hours of gaming or other audio activities. It has so many features that once you get a taste of its capabilities you won’t be able to live and game without it. Priced at a steep 150 US dollars, the Megalodon might give you something to think about before buying. But it is every bit worth its high price tag.
Summary: ... с Razer Megalodon получить шикарный объемный звук можно хоть в чулане, хоть в парке на лавочке. В любом случае наушники вышли отличные, и не сомневаюсь, что они найдут своего потребителя. Все-таки люди окружают нас везде, даже дома, а сделать погромче порой ой как хочется! Так вышло, что насытиться аудио-технологиями, коих пруд пруди в современных играх и фильмах, мне в последнее время удается крайне редко, и это несмотря на то, что качественный звук я люблю с самого...
