FEEL THE MUSIC!!!Posted
This is so good that I can't even explain it. It literally shacks and you feel the bass! I have tried so many $250-$350 headsets and this beats them all by far. The sound if very clear and you can turn on or off the bass shacking if you don't like it. It will make you fall in love with your music and games again. Warning you have to use the Razer app to get the features like the bass shacking and lights and other stuff.

Gimmicky but better than most.Posted
I've been on a hunt for a surround sound headset to match or better my Logitech G35. I settled in on these after a half dozen trial and errors with other headsets. In comparison to the G35 the sound quality is worse, bass isn't as deep, but the volume goes much higher. The vibrating earcups make up for some of the lost bass and it is a kind-of-cool feature, but I found it more distracting than anything else in games. They're big and goofy looking on my head, but comfortable nonetheless. That said, when plugged in to charge and play, there is a periodic windows disconnect chime. It sometimes did not charge while plugged in overnight (known glitch). The volume controls are just not right and will lower in one ear and not the other at times. When haptic feedback is on you'd better have push-to-talk enabled if you want to chat with gamer friends, or they'll just hear bass. The initial setup took over an hour to get surround working with the software from Razor, and it is touchy about working. I returned these after a week and a half because I did not feel I should have to deal with cheap-like problems for a premium headset. Turns out I was correct. Picked up the Steelseries Arctic Pro's. Perfect on all fronts. Less expensive, much better sound quality and bass, more than enough volume, comfortable, and simple setup. Buy those.

Good for about 2 weeks.Posted
I bought this headset looking to make a big upgrade over my old $40 pair of headphones. First impressions were great though even if it did work as intended I think it is still overpriced. I used this headset for about 2 hours with my phone then set it up on my PC, installed the software and got an EQ running and started messing with the "Enhancements". The headset was great, the Haptic sensations which I thought were a gimmick actually turned out pretty nice. Though microphone however was awful, though I expected as much considering I haven't found a single wireless headset with a good Microphone that isn't marketed for professional use. The THX surround was ok, not great, not horrible. The underwater effect here can be pretty overwhelming depending which game you use it with. The positional audio was enough for me to tell where sounds roughly were but I was not impressed, especially considering Razer owns THX. I have had better surround options in headsets half the price. After about 2 weeks I started getting a ridiculous crackling in the sound almost like the speakers were blown but I never even put this headset above half volume. What was even weirder was that it was only happening when I was using it with my PC over wireless, when I used it like my $40 headphones with the 3.5mm cable everything was fine, except of course doing this eliminates all the features of the headset and it sounds like a standard $40 headset. I contacted Razer about this issue since I was out of my return window here on best buy by a few days and after a solid day of trouble shooting they just told me it was a software issue and that there was nothing they could do to resolve the issue. No RMA (Though I doubt that would even solve the issue since I'm 95% sure its their crap Synapse Software), no other support available, can't return it for a refund and I can't resell it because this is apparently a common issue and the next person is probably going to have the same problem. So here I'm, out $200 back to using my $40 headset that I bought 5 years ago at walmart. DO NOT BUY THIS HEADSET at least not until they realize there is an issue and fix their software. If this headset didn't have this issue I still probably wouldn't buy at this price, if it had a better Microphone it would make a bit more sense but even then I'm still not sure I would be happy with it. TLDR: Do not buy this right now, the software makes the headset unusable and if you try and use it without the software it is comparable to a pair of $40 turtle beaches, if not worse and Razer is of 0 help in fixing things here. Current State, 1/5 Stars State Were the software doesn't kill the headset, 3/5 Stars
