    I had a Turtle Beach Earforce X32 wired headset for way too many years that finally went dead on me a couple of weeks ago. I am the Dungeon Master for 2 separate online Dungeons and Dragons groups that play on the weekends. After much reading and hand-wringing, I finally ordered this Razer headset on a Monday. On Tuesday evening, it came in the mail. Well, I felt rather stupid. I should have just bought this with zero reservations as it has the same Plug & Play, user-friendly “This Just Works” ability as my Razer Naga mouse (given to me as a gift in 2011). These things are HUGE which means that as a woman, you can leave your earrings on and these are still super comfy. But the mic…oh my goodness the mic. You can press a button on the end of the mic boom and it mutes your voice. There’s a red LED that comes up when you’re muted. It’s the most genius and useful and “why didn’t I realize how much I needed this” feature I’ve come across on a piece of tech in a while. But that’s not all. I’m in love with the retractable boom. Yes, I said retractable. It slides easily (but not without a tangible amount of tension to let me know it’s not just going to be loosey goosey) away into the base of the left ear cup. It’s fantastic! This mic makes it far too easy to mute myself and have a snack while my players are RP’ing there way out of a fight with a banshee.If you play games on your computer or you are looking for a comfortable headset to watch your Netflix shows with 7.1 Surround Sound, you can’t go wrong here. With just one USB connection to be made and Razer’s software configuration for the extra bells and whistles, I give this product my “Can this just be working already?” stamp of approval.

    This review is for the Chroma V2 USB I used it with the PS4 (Have has it for 6 months so far) Yes it is meant for PC so the 7.1 does not work with the PS4. Which I don’t mind at all. I picked up the regular one meant for console before this one which used the 3.5mm jack which was meant to plug into the PS4 controller. If you’re like me and take sound very seriously and can notice any details such as slight hisses or distortion you would know the PS4s Controller has one of the worst DACs ever. Any headset you plug into it will not sound as it’s intended to be because the port does not output high quality audio. So I returned those and got these and they’re much much better. First of all this is the first Headset I received that has audio monitoring (Meaning you can hear yourself talk) the first time I used this Headset I thought man is this stupid and distracting. But over the time it began to grow on me and I found out it’s true purpose this is to prevent you from yelling into the microphone when you get too excited in game. example (playing at night) it’s a very useful feature. I don’t think I’ll ever consider a Headset without mic monitoring ever again because of this feature.Yes the 7.1 is not for PS4 because this Headset is meant for usb but who cares? It sounds amazing even in stereo. At first it took me a while to get used to the bass because it has very powerful bass you notice right off the bat but once you get used to it you won’t be able to go back. Explosions and other bassy sounds are so immersive. Apart from the bass everything else is very clear the bass does not over power the sound you can still hear everything nice and clear like foot steps. Even though it is stereo you can pin point where every noise is coming from and it sounds fantastic overall. The mic quality is very crisp and sharp it does a very good job at blocking out background noise but it doesn’t block our everything. Like if someone is watching the TV very loud or listening to music very loud you’ll be able to hear it on the mic pretty low though, your voice sounds very natural I’ve personally seen YouTubers complain about the mic saying it’s not so crisp and sharp. But this is gaming Headset for the average person or the gaming fanatic to me it sounds amazing compared to my old Astro A40tr. RGBs are also a pretty nice feature they cycle through the colors very slowly. They’re also very comfortable you can wear them for very long sessions and won’t hurt your ears. The leather is fluffy and cushiony it’s fantastic. This is my first razer Headset. And I can guarantee you it won’t be my last. Razer has taken me off the Astro & HyperX train.

    These are excellent. Because people are stupid and there is a weird random hate towards Razor i just wanted to put together a quick FAQ to correct most common incorrect statements in these reviews.You can adjust the mic monitor (the feedback from mic to your headset so you can hear yourself) or turn it off totally. It’s 2 clicks in the software that comes with the headset. Seriously, just try it.You can sync the RGB lights to everything else razor, or set it to a static color, or turn it off totally.It is not made of cheap plastic. The frame itself is metal, has weight to it, ear cups are not cloth. I’m 6 months in with 20-30 hours of use a week. Still look brand new.Mic doesn’t break off, you mute by pinching the mic. Stop being an idiot.Also mic quality is great. Go to windows adjust levels. Go to mic sensitivity adjust levels in case you have a mechanical keyboard that you don’t want sounds to register from.The wires are braided. If you are ripping these wires, wtf are you doing?Software is functional and does what you need it to do, its updated often.Software also keeps warranty info on file to your account, this is amazing.Basically:If you have a problem with these headphones, the problem is between your keyboard and chair.They are great gaming headphones for the price point. If you on the fence get it.ONLY CONi’m a fan of open back headphones cause they breath better, but don’t cancel noise as well. These are pretty good with noise canceling but i take them off between games to air out my ears.
