  • Summary: It looks pretty and the sound is good but the mic is rubbish, on the lowest setting it still picks up my wife talking in the other room and the fan on my case on the other hand they fit my head comfortably and that was the reason I bought them. ...And then I upgraded to windows 8 Anyone who is still interested in buying them know the Megalodon does not work with windows 8 or 8.1 their customer service told me this "Hey there Alexander, My name is Matt and I will be...

Headphones were fine. The MIC was horrid.

  • Summary: Sound was fine in 2.0 and 7.1 mode. A bit of an echo though in 7.1 mode, but was bearable. When utilizing the microphone (OMG) it was horrendous. I tried adjusting the settings on my computer and so on and so forth, but no absolute luck. I don't know if it was just mine or what, but my voice was not audible whatsoever. It was if a nitroglycerin plant was blowing up behind me each time I spoke into the mic. Would have been at least 4 stars, but you obv.

  • Summary: Ok guys, I have no idea why these are getting some bad reviews. Thses came today, I updated the firmware, made the volume adjustments I wanted. got into Vent to ask my guildies what they thought, and the overwhelming response was nothing short of incredible. They all said it sounded like I was standing in the same room, right next to them and one guildie lives 10,000 miles away.

Great headset, too much bandwidth.

Illusive23, Amazon

  • Summary: While being an excellent product on all fronts, the Razer Megalodon headset has one fatal flaw I noticed right after receiving it. For unknown reasons, this headset takes up a MASSIVE (63-65%) of any computer's USB bandwidth. This, when coupled with the other USB bandwidth uses such as a mouse or an I-phone, causes the USB bandwidth to overload and prevent the usage of some applications.

Megalodon Headphones

Ados8000, Amazon
16 February 2012
  • Summary: I have used these headphones for 1 week now and the sound is excellent quality and the 7.1 surround sound works outstandingly well. However, the mic has had static issues since the day I have received it and Razer was of no help. I have tried all the fixes including the latest firmware from Razer and the problem is still there. It means that the headphones can't be used for talking online and are basically very expensive speakers.

Disappointed

Mrs Lorien Carey, Amazon

  • Summary: Very disappointed with these, especially considering the price. The microphone didn't work and the sound was poor. Have returned them for a refund. Have decided to get a set for a third of the price and accept they may not last as long.

I was expecting a lot more...

GeeKay, Amazon
2 September 2013
  • Summary: As you get the box of this products you start to believe that the sound and features experience will be really unique...well you thought wrong. The sound quality and volume is quite poor, especially in games. I tried to use the 7.1 function, with no luck. The sounds are really "metallic" and there is no way you can really understand where the sound is coming from. In music the volume is quite low and it lucks of bass.

Didn't work for me.

Max Giroudiere, Amazon
10 April 2013
  • Summary: Unfortunately I had serious problems with this headset. The 2.0 sound worked fine but the 7.1 was absolutely horrible, with serious muffling and echos. I tried everything, I contacted Razer, updated drivers, system etc, got replacements,they didn't work either, contacted Dell, and nothing could be done. So I have sent them back and plan to buy a different headset.

  • Excerpt: В первые месяцы покупки был доволен, сейчас же разочаровался из за их надёжности. До них у меня были Razer Carcharias, и у них так же появился треск в колонках.
  • Pros: Подсветка, настройка звука
  • Cons: Ужасное качество сборки. После года использования появился треск в правой колонке, после и в левой. Цена завышена.
