Summary: Just got these as an upgrade from my Philips SHG7980 headset. Straight out of the box, they sound great, no equalizer setting modification required. Just plug the headset and get immersed in movies and games. The bass is definitely what makes this headphone shine.
Club/rock/dubstep music: perfect with Asus Xonar DGX sound-card (dolby headphone: enabled)
Gaming: best when used with Razer Surround 2.0 and all sound card effects disabled.
Pros: Great bass. Great positional audio, strong build, great immersion, braided 10ft cable
Cons: slightly heavy, ears get warm, bass may sometimes drown out details, but not so much.
Summary: This headset really kicks. There are 2 40mm speakers in each ear and the rear one sits in a bandpass enclosure designed for deep, thumping bass. If you like dubstep, these headphones are for you. I've loved them so much I carry them around with me and use them with my Galaxy Player and now my CMoy amp. They have pristene sound with clear highs and mids and insane bass. I have recommended this to over 4 friends who immediately bought a pair after listening to mine.
Pros: EPIC BASS, Comfortable one-size-fits-all headband, noise cancelling, immersion++, great positional audio, wonderful for listening to music
Cons: may need a headphone amp to really make it bang, slight quality control issues (first pair had to be sent back (this is why there is -1/2 star))
Summary: Bought these to replace my dying Razer Carcharias headphones. Spent about 10 minutes setting them up to how I like my sound (plenty of bass, but not too overpowering, and a slight treble/mid boost) Maxed out the volume and was amazed at how well they performed. They did not clip or distort at all. Highly recommend for sound quality. I cannot comment on the microphone however as I do not plan on using it because I have a Blue Snowball mic.
Summary: An excellent choice for a gamer...sound is amazing. Tried it with Bioshock Infinite and it was out of the world. Bass could have been better but no complaints. I had a Steel Series Siberia 5H V2 and I would recommend the Tiamat over that any day. Bass is good, better than the V2 but not as pronounced ....this is decent for watching movies but not so good for music. Many reviews said its good for music, I don't feel so. It is built purely for gaming.
Summary: If you’re a gamer, or you like watching movies with things blowing up, and you listen to party music all day, I can’t think of a single headset that will bring all together in one...... than the Razer Tiamat 2.2. Highly Recommended!
