Summary: I got these because i needed a good headset for when i game. The megalodons do just what i was looking for good speakers(the 7.1 is okay really only turn it on for FPS) but the 2.0 does sound pretty good. They're also pretty comfy to wear for awhile. The mic needs a bit of tuning but once you get it adjusted it works well. It comes with a case which is pretty nice because i also use these for work. TL;DR Good sound, 7.1 sounds weird. Mic needs adjusting. Comfy.
Summary: Ok, After a month trying with this bad boy, I've decided to write a review on it. I will set it up through the following sections: -Packaging -Form Factor/Confort -Audio -Microphone -Features -Installation Pakaging: When I first got this headset, I wasn't surprised with the extremely well done packaging from Razer for I have several other products from them.
Summary: So, I have had these headphones for approximately 3 days and have done some marathon gaming with them prior to writing this review. I will update it if I find that it is necessary to do so. I have now owned this headset for about 2 years and wanted to let people know what my feelings have come to be now that I have VERY thoroughly tested them. I still agree with my early claims about the comfort level of these.
Summary: Well what can i say? the headset seems to work great, sound quality is top notch and the spatial immersion ain't bad at all! The construction is sturdy and the Mic is responsive, albeit a bit too responsive without updating the firmware. sounds are always clear and easy to pick up, i recommend it heavily.
Summary: First of all I did not experience any problems with the microphone that I read about in any other reviews. The mic works great. In gaming when you use the 7.1 I was disappointed with the sound for as you know a lot of recent games are 5.1 and according to Razer advertising the headphones automatically adapt to the 5.1 when you are in the 7.1 mode. I didn't see that with my experience and the sound was like it was in a "drum" or I was getting an echo effect.
Summary: I love this headset for the great looks, the good mic that doesn't lose its grip like other ones do and slide all the way down, the 7.1 surround sound capabilities, and the controller that is attached to it. It is pretty cumbersome for some headphones though so you may get a little uncomfortable with them, but you get used to them after a while.
Summary: I work in a call center (gotta love student jobs) So I use these for work in addition to using them for gaming. So the quality of the microphone was a big issue for me, The ease of use was also a big selling point. It exceeded my expectations in both of these areas. I had to have a usb headset that was true plug and play due to me having to sit at different desks for different shifts, so having to install drivers every time would not be acceptable for my situation, and...
Excellent Audio Quality just a few kinks here and there

Summary: Now I am sure we all know the pros of this excellent headset, but I will go through the trouble of listing them down anyways. - First off excellent quality down both lanes of 2.0 and 7.1 surround sound - Good looks and relatively shiny - A very sensitive mic - Comfortable fit over the head even if glasses are on.
Summary: I bought the Razer Megalodon about a month ago for gaming only as an upgrade from a pair of Zalman 5.1 headphones I had owned for several years. I plugged in the USB and they were ready to go. No installation CDs, no drivers, no rebooting, nothing...I don't think I've ever had an easier peripheral "installation." I think think they sound great for gaming purposes.
Summary: With A LOT of tweaking (mainly for music), you can make this headset sound outstanding, regardless of what you are doing, (music, movies, games, etc.)It has crispy clear highs and beautiful mids, and decent lows. I personally had no problems setting it up (64-bit win7), but I know some people have, so be prepared for that. i have two issues with this headset.
