Summary: I picked these up knowing that they wouldn't come close to the quality level of my Sennheiser Momentum headphones, but needing a headset, I figured Razer's flagship would be up to the task. The packaging and control box were very nice, and the speaker pass-through dongle was a great touch.
Pros: Auto-adjusting headband, earcups very comfortable, stylish control module, speaker pass-through, microphone completely retracts
Summary: Before you read this, I think you should know that I'm not an audiophile and that English isn't my native language.
Let me start this on a positive note.
The design of Razer Tiamat 7.1 is very good. Even though the actual headset is big, it looks quite nice.
Pros: Nice design, lights up
Cons: Very heavy, horrible sound quality, can't hear people behind or in front of you, not very comfortable
Summary: This headphone have 10 DRIVERS so it's heavy and bulky headset
Gaming and movie (7.1 mode): enjoyable since you can spot location very easy.
Music (2.0 mode): if you listen music with 7.1 you can't not hear any bass.
Summary: The good:
- 10 drivers (5 per ear) allow for amazing spatial awareness when watching movies/playing games.
- The cushions on each ear are quite nice and provide a good amount of nose cancelling.
- The mic is retractable for when not in use.
Pros: True 7.1 surround sound, good isolation, retractable mic, can switch between headphone and speakers instantly
Cons: Bad for music, top band can be uncomfortable, can barely hear yourself talk while using it
Summary: Long time user of Tritton Ax pros, have logged over 1500 hours on 2 pairs and love them. I was told these will work with the tritton ax pro amp and they do in 5.1.
Bass sounds good especially when sniping you can feel it also you can adjust it to be high treble.
Very good sound separation.
Pros: 7.1 for pc and 5.1 for console using Tritton Ax pro AMP, Most comfortable headphones I have owned.
Cons: Console a channel is lost which can lose a cue or a slight gap in listening which can cause virtual death in cod only.
Summary: There are lots of bad reviews for those, however I must say that after properly calibrating them through an equilizer the muddy, cheap sound becomes much much better. In 7.1 mode for playing music those are absolutely horrendous, however if you use bass redirection and set crossover frequency at...
Pros: Strong bass, especially in games; good sound separation in supported games, well built and comfortable.
Cons: Requires lots of playing with an equilizer, terrible sound out of the box especially for music.
Summary: To consider the Razer Tiamat 7.1 as the ultimate gaming headset experience is a bit too much. But this product isn’t an embarrassing option, really. If you happen to own an old motherboard and a 7.1-surround card, this model will work just fine.
Excerpt: With the Tiamat 7.1 , Razer is redefining the top end of the gaming audio line. Where previous headsets have had trouble creating a surround gaming experience through just two drivers, the Tiamat fits what is essentially an entire surround sound system into each earcup, with five individual drivers,...
Pros: Great surround sound; very powerful bass for a headset; excellent comfort.
