Excerpt: Nice headset albeit a bit much for what you get. They are a little uncomfortable after a while and hurt my ears although sound is good. Microphone is a little sensitive and if not adjusted right can pick up background noises.
Summary: I'm not an audiophile so I won't comment on sound quality, but I will comment on construction. There doesn't appear to be much material at the point where the cups meet the headband. This seems to be because the designers wanted the front and back actuation for comfort, and I think they are pretty comfortable so maybe watch out if you're not very careful with your devices. The cups barely fit around my ear, but they do fit.
A bit less than I expected but wonderful none-the-less.

Summary: After my G930s from Logitech gave way, I knew I needed to find a new headset that could provide similar to better gaming experiences. I, for a while, considered Astro A50s and the Steelseries H Wireless since my G930s were also wireless but after a buddy of mine recommended that I take a leap of faith and try the Tiamat 7.1, I bought it straight away when I saw it was up for 139.99.
Summary: if your sole purpose is to gain a sound advantage in first person shooters i say 2 thumbs up. many times i have said "i heard you coming like a horse " and the response, 9 out of 10 times is "yeah right"
Summary: Let me start off by saying this is the first 7.1 surround headset I've used. I've used 7.1 surround speakers for some time as well as a few 5.1 headsets and 5.1 speakers in the past. With that out of the way, I loved these headphones. One thing to note about them is that there isn't a whole lot of sound isolation, and others can also hear your games/music/movies pretty well if you plan to play them at anywhere above half of these headphones' volume (which I do...
Summary: FINALLY got my hands on one of these, been using it for a month. Figured time for a review. Starting with the sound quality, IF, you have a good sound card to drive them. (Using a Creative X-Fi Titanium) They are wonderful, the surround sound (compared to the Razer Megalodon) is excellent, when compared, it's roughly the same, but more precise. Upon first use, I was really really disappointed with the Bass, it just wasn't there.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I do not have a soundcard; I am running this device off of my motherboard which has 7.1 built in. I'm also a gamer not an audiophile. The bad: * The device has a Stereo button which makes things louder in the headphones at the cost of the 7.1 experience. This is fine but this mode cannot be used when you set the device to use external speakers (a great option BTW!). A possible solution is to buy some cable which join two headset outs into one.
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.
Beautiful pair of headphones, I can now sound beast people in BF4 they stomp around like dinosaurs.
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: It's been a long wait for Razer fans. I finally got my hands on a wave of Tiamats through the Razer Store, and the wait ended up being well worth it. Sound quality is great and the plug-and-play access is great, since it's just a bunch of 3.5mm jacks and a USB port for power. No drivers needed! Pros: + Sound Quality - The most important part of a headset, right?
Summary: I had both sets, brand new and i went back and forth between them for two weeks. I am using these on my PC with a Creative xfi titanium sound card and heres my thoughts.. First i will say the Astros are alittle bit more comfortable mainly due to the velour ear cups and have a little bit higher build quality.. They are VERY nice and i really liked them alot, but they are also more expensive and arent true surrround.
