The build quality is quite nice as is the comfort of the device

Seth, Amazon
1 September 2015
  • Summary: The build quality is quite nice as is the comfort of the device. The packaging and presentation are top notch and makes me feel like I have a premium item. The device weight is low enough that these can be worn for extended sessions; however, heat builds up quickly and severely, as it would with any...

Not as good as the (cheaper) Tiamat 2.2

Stefan Xenos, Amazon
27 July 2015
  • Summary: There's some big problems with these headphones: - They emit a quiet humming all the time. - Unlike with most virtual 7.1 systems, there is no calibration tool to control the audio separation.

  • Summary: It worked better than i thought especially when paired with my asus xonar phoebus soundcard but it didnt last too long. After owning it for a few months the mic started not to work on it but at the time i didnt need the mic too much so i didnt really worry but it was just the start of my problems.

Horrible sound, Cheap feel, Amazing Mic Sound

Michael, Amazon
24 October 2012
  • Summary: I'm not sure if I received a faulty headset or not.. so take this review with that in mind. The sound quality on the pair I received was horrendous. I have a very expensive sound card.. and was using a pair of Astro A-40's before these. It sounded as if everything was being played through a tin can.

I really wanted to love this, but...

Matthew Ostman, Amazon
12 September 2012
  • Summary: It's just got too many issues. Issue 1: Buzzing and crackling sound, even when muted. This is addressed in their FAQ for the product, which says "The buzzing sound you are hearing is caused by the USB connection within computer systems that have a grounding issue and not due to the Razer Tiamat...

Great Sound

Brent, memoryexpress.com
9 January 2016
  • Summary: Great sound, Cheap design
  • Pros: sound is amazing bass is great control module is great
  • Cons: Microphone is by far the bane of this headset. took my first set back on IPR after a year because the microphone literally fell apart into 4 pieces (weak glue/design) 6 weeks into my second set (by now IPR is expired) the microphone lock stopped engaging.. to now it is either below my chin or in...

not impressed for the price of this headset

Tanner, memoryexpress.com
18 February 2015
  • Summary: for the price it is not a good product. I recommend listening to a mic audio test on the internet before buying. I even tried listening to the virtual barber on you tube and my Ear Force z22's sent shivers down my spine but the Tiamat had no effect.
  • Pros: -looked great -the control module is a great touch -cable looked promising for durability(didn't have it long enough to find out)
  • Cons: -mic connection felt like it was cheap -mic quality was poor(sounds really muffled) -7.1 gaming audio was not great, it sounded like mostly high frequencies and minimal lows(i spent multiple hours trying to make it sound good but couldn't with my corsair v formula on board audio)

Don't use these for music

Aaron, Amazon
7 March 2014
  • Summary: They're good for games, but they sound distinctly awful for anything that isn't games. Sure you're getting Surround Sound but you're really sacrificing a lot of audio quality for it, they do sound absolutely abhorrent.

Cheaply built and extremely easy to break

Cedric P., Amazon
27 October 2012
  • Summary: Disclaimer: Before you accuse me of reviewing a cheap knock-off, please know that I purchased this product on Razer's actual website, therefore I really doubt I'm talking about a knock-off, even though I sometimes wonder if that's not what I received, considering the horribly poor quality of this...
