  • Excerpt: The headphone is very comfortable and durable, its separation with speakers are amazing and worth it though the mic itself was a major let down, the extension for the mic are weak and could be broken very easily and unfortunately did. The mic quality alone is very unbearable, many players could...

  • 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. - Allow for surround sound speakers to be hooked up and switched to with the press of a button. - Can be switched between 7.1 and 2.0 when necessary.
  • 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: I have to admit, the sound quality was not great, but that is not what I brought the headset for. The surround sound is truly fantastic!

After a few weeks of usage

  • Summary: I thought I'd write a small review about this since there has been mixed reactions in regards to this headset, I bought this for two reasons, to change from the Logitech G930 due to disconnection issues and to maximize use of my 7.1 sound card, I was cautious about this product at first given a lot of negative user reviews around the interwebs, especially given their recommendations to avoid, eventually I decided against that and went for it.

needs careful configuration but sounds great

  • Summary: I bought these recently and think they're great :) what I think some of the negative reviewers have come up against when complaining about the sound quality and/or lack of bass I believe to be attributable to the soundcard in use or the configuration thereof. Initially I tried to use these with an onboard 7.1 soundcard - which gave very unsatisfactory sound as the headphones simply put through the channels they're given and with any surround setup you have to take...

Amazing... after long and tiring setup

  • Summary: The headset works amazing. The sound quality is one of the best and the 7.1 sorround works like a charm. Unfortunetly Windows has problems with the razer Tiamat. It doesen't recognize the Tiamat as a 7.1 sorround Sound device and disables the sub-woofer (why windows, why?). So if you just plug the Tiamat in it Sound is horrible. It takes a lot of tinkering with your Sound card settings to get to Sound well. But when it does you won't regret buying the razer Tiamat.

  • Summary: First off, I bought these for one 1 purpose, first person shooters. I run them through analog 7. 1. However, you'll want to set them up at 5. 1 in windows as most programs don't output in 7. 1 sound. What you want to do is check your games in game sound settings. If the game has 7. 1 option then set windows as 7. 1, otherwise do 5. 1. The bass isn't something to write home about, however, with some setting tweaks you can get the bass right.

Excellent sound - expensive, and not for the colour-blind

  • Summary: Bought this to go with my new-build ASUS Maximus Gene V based buid. The inbuilt sound card is 7.1 and so I felt 7.1 sound is what I should have. These phones work straight from being plugged in, but there's my problem from a red/green colourblind point of view. The jack plugs are, as usual, colour coded but the colour is now a thin strip round the plug, even more difficult to distinguish for me with my partial colour blindness.
