Summary: This was the first full-size headphone I bought, before I had any knowledge of hifi audio. And I perhaps only bought it to my friends with their Logitech G35 jealous, as these cans were supposed to be superior (they are, but not by much)
The first thing I noticed when opened the package is the...
Pros: comfortable, good surround sound, easy to use
Summary: For the price of these($160 when I bought them) they cannot be beat! They have a built in very powerful amp/dac which helps power these very powerful headphones, they have a bigger sound stage than dedicated open headphones as they have built in 7.1 surround sound which open headphones cannot...
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.
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
