What was Razer thinking...
Posted by: Huffmanster from: on
I will try to keep it short and to the point. My experience with Razer man o war...... very good quality wireless system they never lost connection and sounded Great! However, that is the only positive thing about them. they are very poorly constructed, after the first 3 days of use the top head pad broke off, the top pad is only attached by 2 very small plastic pins.... very fragile. after the pad pins broke off the hard plastic frame dug painfully on top of your head, the the over the ear padding was sub par, once your ears were inside them they smashed your ears inside the cup and OUCH... 10 mins and I had them off. these are poorly constructed, they need a better constructed head pad. they do sound very very well! A+++ I love Razer products but these do not stand up to normal wear and tear. the feel very loose and if they flex the top pad WILL break off!! come on Razer, what were you thinking? also If you have a large Mellon then do not get these, they are not made for larger heads. or ppl with big ears. very painful! PLEASE PLEASE RAZER fix this . you have a great product at 160$ I expect better quality construction!

Do not buy!
Posted by: Rich from: on
I purchased this headset based purely on the reputation of the company, boy do I regret it.
The headset was not very comfortable at first, though I figured I just had to get used to it so I kept it past the return date. Unfortunately, that's when the real problems started.
- The overall frame is solid, but the pad for the top of your head is attached by the flimsiest 4 pieces of plastic possible. I take great care of my equipment, but these snapped easily, which created a very uncomfortable headset.
- There is an on-screen low battery indicator that will minimize the game you're playing. It can't be turned off. Additionally, the charging while plugged in is too slow to keep up with use. So once it's low battery, it's completely unusable.
- The headset will automatically shut off if idle. However, it for some reason doesn't detect some low volume noises. So even if there is sound, but it's really quiet for an extended period, the headset will shut off.
This device is simply not the quality I'd expect from Razer and is definitely not worth the price. Look elsewhere.

My biggest issues may not be yours
Posted by: msskdrlqq from: on
First and foremost, they sound great - especially for wireless headphones. The mic is clear and people were able to understand me clearly.
My biggest gripes, come from the headband. I have a large noggin, and due to its rigidity when the ear muffs were in a comfortable position the top of the head band was pushing down on the top of my head. Normally headphones do this, but this was extremely noticeable. Because of how 'tight' the headphones are, when I increase the length of the headband, it would pull the ear muffs in tighter and because a bit awkward to wear.
The other con, although not a big one - these things are massive. I felt like I should be in a string bikini and working for Jabba when these were on - and no one wants to see that.
If they're a comfortable for you, and you have a normal size noggin, I would recommend these if you're in the market for wireless headphones.

Solid Wireless Headset
Posted by: MacSpartan from: on
I purchase this headset mainly for comfort and audio performance for gaming only. So far as I've have used it for about a month I can say it outputs surround sound within games such as Counter Strike GO very well and has a very good plush ear cups.
I had watched a review before buying the headset and was still on the fence if i wanted it. But Razer now offers a non wireless version for cheaper which is a plus if anyone is worried about wireless interference. However, wireless interference was my main concern after buying this as i have my router right next to me and the headset and router both use the 2.4GHz band. I did not see any issues or cut outs as I had with the Logitech G930.
Loving the headset so far!

The best in it's price range, by far!
Posted by: Teddy from: on
The good about the headset: design is super sleek and amazingly comfortable. Materials are light, well fitted, and the chroma design pairs perfectly with Razer's other accessories. I watched a linustechtips review about this before buying it and I gotta say, he got something wrong. He pointed out the hallow feel, and the fact they squeak when easily maneuvered. The squeak goes away very fast, and they feel solidly built. The battery also (advertised as 1 week, or 14 hours) stands true.
The bad about this headset: I believe that when the mic is fully pushed in, it should automatically mute itself. The ear cuffs do touch your ears, but still go around them, so be aware of that. You get used to it though. The ear cuffs also do get a little warm after multiple hours, something I think could be solved with maybe an addition of switchable cloth cuffs.
Bought this, along with the firefly, blackwidow chroma stealth, and the Mamba TE. In combination they are all absolutely beautiful. You can sync them all up so their LEDs react together, or separate for situational use. The program you use to do all this (Razer's Synapse) is super easy to use, has downloaded developer additions, and helps save profiles usable across multiple games, and computers. Razer's other additions of software (such as comms, arena, and cortex) also help increase your game time and play immensely. Their company truly is for gamers, by gamers.

Comfortable for a while
Posted by: n3b1 from: Midlothian, VA on
Purchased this headset because I wanted a wireless headset to game on. They feel comfortable and do last a couple of hours, however the battery life is rather short. 7 hours goes by incredibly fast and it feels like it takes much longer to charge. The mic controls are ok, but are a bit awkward at times and you can accidentally un-mute yourself when you turn you head and you brush against the mic wheel. The last issue I have with it is the cushion in the band. After a few weeks of use, it snapped out of the headset and now the headset gets uncomfortable due to the plastic clips that held the cushion in rubbing against my head.
Pros: sound quality, comfortable
Cons: odd battery life, head cushion breaks out to easily

Nice wireless headset but..
Posted by: ROTOMON from: on
I'm a fairly hardcore supporter of Razer products. It is a great headset but it has a few things that annoyed me and those things are why I gave it a 4 star instead of 5.
- No charging dock.
- Recoil Mic boom is a nice feature but rattled and felt weak and moved around.
- Over ear headset but the speaker pad (inner part) presses against ear.

Good sound, Poor make
Posted by: Chris from: on
(short review for people who don't want to read it all)
Mic quality is good, sound quality is great, battery life is shorter than advertised, lasts about 7 hours of gaming with no chroma and 5 hours with chroma. Headset itself is very very flimsy, it feels like it will break when you pick it up and put it down, overall, just buy a different headset, this one is good but not worth the price.
The sound quality for this headset is really good! it sounds great, but it is made out of really cheap plastic. It squeaks and cracks just from taking it on and off your head.
The top of the headset has two very tiny pieces on either side that hold the foam cushion in place, as i stated earlier it is very cheap and flimsy. the two plastic pieces broke on one side just from taking it on and off. So now the foam piece doesn't rest properly on my head and isn't comfortable.
it is also very bottom heavy, the earcups themselves are massive and i'm a pretty large guy (6'0) and they have never sat completely flush on my head. Even at the lowest size it would go.
Battery Life isn't as advertised, about 7 hours without chroma, 5 with.
Headset also turns itself off if there is no sound coming in for a little while (i assume to save battery), mine would turn off sometimes in the middle of me speaking to someone. So i would have to turn it back on again.
Overall, the sound quality is great, but it's really not worth the price you pay for it. It's way too flimsy. if you must buy it, get the protection plan because you will need it for sure.

Very comfortable and great simulated surround soun
Posted by: Grey from: on
The design makes the headset really a comfortable fit; I've worn it while gaming for a few hours at a time without any issues. The simulated surround sound is really great, making it more apparent when enemies are coming up behind. So far I haven't had the batteries die on me while gaming, so that's good. Would definitely recommend.

Great comfort, Great sound, Great quality.
Posted by: bigstuff17 from: on
I've had this wireless headset for about 2 months now, and while it looks a bit big, I forget sometimes that I'm wearing it. I wear it for 8-10 hours at a time and the sound quality is great. The Synapse software is nice to disable/enable the LED lights on the sides and also to monitor the battery to let you know when you have to charge it (usually every 2-3 days of constant use, but maybe once a week for normal use).
The retractable microphone is extremely flexible and convenient - it's really sensitive but the controls on the sensitivity are really nice. Same goes with the volume control - both can raise & lower the volume; press the knob and mute/unmute.
Large ear cushions make extended use a breeze.
Highly recommended for everyone who does any of the following:
1) Plays games
2) Watches movies
3) Listens to music
4) Talks to friends and family online
