Razer are a well established gaming peripherals brand that is incredibly popular across the globe. With product ranges including gaming mice, keyboards, speakers, headsets and even gaming laptops, Razer cover all the bases with high performing and top quality peripherals. We’ve seen several of their products here before at eTeknix.com, and with no surprise the majority of them walked away clutching an award. Will this be the case with their newest headset that we have in today? Lets find out.

Headsets are a very important component for the full, immersed gaming, studio or cinema experience and there are many companies out there that claim they provide the full experience. This isn’t always the case though, as a lot of the time cheap headsets are given a facelift, and have “gaming” slapped in the name, hiking the price up another £20 or so, for comparatively a lot less. Then there is also the debate over the best kind of surround sound – virtual or true. Today Razer have provided us with their Tiamat 7.1 True Surround Sound headset, so we hope to address some of the issues.

The Razer Tiamat is the company’s first true 7.1 surround sound headset, which they even boast as the “World’s first true 7.1 headset”. Could cramming 10 drivers into the headset reduce the depth and quality of the sound? There is only way to find out… read on

  1. At $180 for a headset I really don't see how the price is justified by the performance, every other review i've read says you can pick up better audio quality on much cheaper headphones. The additional Razer features are not enough to justify an extra $100 or so in price

  2. It is indeed overpriced a bit, but I think it’s worth it, albeit it costs more than I expected

    At least it’s not as overpriced as Beats (up too 400$ with spec lower than this one)

    7.1 True Surround… Not bad :<

    How exactly did you tweak mumble? I”m getting horrible quality according to my friends.

    Why wasn’t there any mention about the crappy 2.1 sound, music sounds awful
    Also the mic sound quality is far beneath what you expect from an expensive headset like this
    and finally if you plug the usb in a standard pc usb port, the tiamat hums like crazy
    Such a waste for a headset that could’ve been awesome, so it doesn’t deserve the award imho, especially for that price

    How would you use these on a TV Blu Ray player?
