Want Surround? Want Analog? Want Quality? Listen to this.

Excerpt: So, I bought these for my desktop last month. I had to use analog/3.5mm connections to use my Buttkicker LFE too. I was disappointed that I had to spend $170 on a nice headset that didn't use USB, but that payed off.
Summary: The drivers in the headphone went out in less than a year on november 19th 2014, from a purchase date of December 2013. Contacted Razer support, it's taken over 21 days (yes, 3 weeks), with them asking every 4-5 days by email (no phone support) inane questions as they delay the warranty support for...
Summary: I was sorely disappointed with this product. This is the one and only time I have ever been let down by Razer. I currently use a Black Widow Ultimate keyboard, an Ouroboros mouse, and an Orbweaver-all of which I love.
Summary: Truly these were a let down to say the least, I would strongly encourage others to reconsider when thinking of buying from this company. I say this after owning many goods from them ( keyboards, mice, mice pads, game controllers, and now headphones).
Would not recommend.. My worst experience in gaming!

Summary: First few week the sound is good. When I say good it means average. I'm using the Xonar phoebus so this thing sounds a bit cheap like a 128kbps mp3 quality. Anyway after 2 weeks of use I noticed that there's a mild crackle in the left side everytime a big bass comes in in a game.
Summary: I've had two pairs within the last 2.5 years. I love the sound quality that comes in them. However, the same issue has come up again. Slightly over the 1 year mark, the left earpiece starts to lose some volume. It's due to faulty wiring on the inside of the headphone.
Summary: Pros: The transparent ear cups are neat, and the amplifier / sound mixer is great. True 7.1 surround is great for games that support it - disable for everything else. Cons: The over all sound quality is either really tinny when on surround mode - or really muddy with bass when on 2.1.
Summary: That sums it all up. great for the first year. support admitted that the cable has faults and was ready to replace it saying its common untill they saw it was past that 1 year mark. so nope no support for headphones that costed me 200 dollars! Seriously made to work for about a year.
Poorly designed and built, expect to pay a lot on RMAs if you buy these.

Summary: The Tiamat 7.1 offers a minor increase in audio quality over the megalodon and other headsets out there, the 7.1 is honestly not something I've really noticed while using it, and the mike is honestly lacking in quality.
Summary: I bought these as the most expensive headphone set that I ever spent money on and I regret buying them. You can probably build better sounding headphones if you make them from scrap available in a junkyard. What a waste of my hard earned money!
