its to expensive, im gonna buy some jordans insted. if i would buy another razer headset it would be the mano´war
I take audio pretty seriously, and generally own half a dozen mid tier headphones at any given moment (these I would class as Âentry levelÂ).
They have the focus in the right place - comfort..
And as anyone who has used wireless cansÂ can attest- it takes awhile getting out of the habit of Âmoving the cable out of the way of chair rollersÂ, and once that feeling of freedom of worry about cable length is gone; being untethered is excellent.
Some posiitive points for these come down to format as well, supporting Dobly 7.1 is extremely useful.
These appear to be a closed back design (which tightens up bass response, and stops Âsound leakageÂ into the room around the user), which can often be the reason we would want to Âswitch to headphonesÂ in the first place, so it really looks like these headphones have hit the design ideals Âout of the parkÂ #homerun.
The price seems very reasonable too, for what they are and the market segment they will compete in.
50mm drivers are unusual in wireless headphones, most opting for smaller Âspeaker unitsÂ as they generally are cheaper to include, usually requiring less power to make work...
To confirm, being a Dolby headphone user, and not one to compromise on sound quality using wireless, I would be buying an open back set of Audio Technicas (specifically 700/x, 900/x or the gaming ATH-ADG1X, on clearance around the same pricepoint or likely lower).
(There are also some specific beyerdynamics and the AKG 700 series to select from)
The reason I opt for any of those headphones is due to their huge soundfields, which having gamed using Dolby Headphone for a long time, can attest is most important to get right.
For anybody already owning a dolby headphone decoder (turtle beach, tritton and astro have included them with many of their headsets), I would pair an open backed headphone (generally having a much larger sound field) with those..
With the exception of the Audio Technica gaming headphones, 99% of gaming headphones are very poor value by comparison in terms of sound quality and bang for buck.
To confirm though- these Razers look to get many things correct and I believe they would perform well, seeing there has obviously been some design love going into these.
Just be aware that headphones built by a sound company, such as Audio Technica who have been making headphones for decades, certainly well before the fads that skullcandy and beats brought about,.. they focus on sound quality, and have R&DÂd for longer than the age of anyone likely to be using them.
I would happily replace my Bowers & Wilkins P7 and Sony MDR-1A(bluetooth) headphones for the gaming headphones that AudioTechnica make.
Cabled, yes, but the best sound I have heard and my Battlefield performance has noticably improved with the positional accuracy they allow.
The benefit of cabled Audio Technica models is they can go on the road and be used with phone and tablets and music players as well.
Better than buying a new game, as ALL games benefit ;-)
