Summary: If you're looking at these, you're probably familiar with Razer and their high quality products. Unfortunately, these were released so long ago, they no longer work with modern operating systems (Windows 8 or later). I purchased them in 2012, not knowing they were already nearing the end of their lifespan. Now, plugging them into a usb port only yields errors about the device not being recognized.
Summary: This headset is great, I love the way it sounds, I love the way it feels, I love the case, and I love the box it comes in but there is one major down that made me give this 3 stars the mic picks up wayyy too much I have to have my sound on the lowest setting to use it and the heatset does not last long at all the cords tangle up and strip within 6 months I dont know if its the way I take care of it? I guess it is great while you have it...
Summary: The headset has problems cutting in and out, and getting loud randomly (especially when using Skype). Additionally, when used on a USB 3.0 port, these problems are much worse. Otherwise, very good sound quality, and a nice control box.
Summary: PROS: + Great sound quality in 2.0 mode + Ability to customise each speaker, mute mic and volume control from the attachment sound card 'maelstrom' box + Extremely light and comfortable! + Made from cheap plastic but is considerably durable CONS: - The 7.1 virtual surround sound is muffled (in 5.1 games) , it has an echo effect, like you're in a stadium (not impressed with it) - Disappointed in the bass.. DO NOT BUY IF...
Summary: I like the surround sound its pretty nice but on occasion it will just cut out and wont come back for quite some time and also when i turn the computer on i always have to unplug and re plug to get sound and mic to work. This may just be a problem with my PC but considering what my friends have gone threw with these I would say its the headphones because iv never had a problem with headphones on my PC before.
Summary: I returned these after a day. Cost too much for what you get. Pros: Packaging and headphones both look *awesome* Extremely light cloth-woven covering on the cord makes it durable Music sounds fairly good in 2.1 mode Hard-side zipper case for carrying the headset Cons: ****NOT Dolby certified***** They will not mix stereo and 7.1 input natively..
When it works well, it's great, when it doesn't, it's a pain.

Summary: I have no problems with the Megalodon when it comes to gaming. Games that support 7.1 sound great with it, and it's supremely comfortable, able to be used for hours without discomfort. However, I can barely watch any streaming media without hearing a clicking noise occasionally. That may be due to something with my hardware specifically, or it may be due to the compression used on sites like youtube. However, my other headsets don't do that.
