Summary: The Tiamat exudes quality and attention to detail. Everything from the packaging to the lighting, the little touches such as the little plastic windows that let others ogle at the five drivers in each cup (yes, five), the quality of the cables, the control pod, everything. Everything that is, except the audio. For a set that's as great looking (and exorbitantly priced) as this, it's surprising that the audio just doesn't live up to expectations.
Summary: The Razer Tiamat’s 10-driver 7.1 surround sound produces some of the best sound of any product in our PC gaming headset reviews and may have the single best bass output. Razer has made the best use of current surround sound technology with this headset, though they don't approach perfection (and perfection in the realm of gaming headset surround sound may always elude us).
Pros: The Razer Tiamat’s cutting edge surround sound is effective, with impressive bass output.
Cons: It requires a 5.1 or 7.1 sound card to function at full surround sound capacity and it requires a USB connection to work at all.
