New Razer Headset. Any Opinions

So apparently they are making a 7.1 and 2.1 version with the pricing being
~160 and ~99USD respectively. I have owned ASTRO products and the G930, i've never been completely 100% satisfied. Think this will be any different? It does have 10 DRIVERS!?

Yep, heard of them. But personally I wouldn't go for Razer when Sound is considered,they aren't very good either compared to other competitors.

Hi Invena. While that headset might look cool, surround gaming headsets are not recommended because you can get much better sound quality out of a stereo headset for the money. Stereo headphone virtualization provided by Creative and Dolby gives better surround positioning than having multiple drivers in each cup. What budget do you have for headphones?

This is written for some lols, but it is 100% correct, that headset will be overpriced garbage.

Hey, it seems you have started a thread asking for help buying headsets so you can talk to your guild while you play WoW. This is a helpful guide to bluntly state some of the finer points.

Let me get this out of the way quickly, straight up NEVER BUY A HEADSET. You may be asking, "Why?!" since virtually every uneducated fool has one. Well good thing I'm here, so I can teach you up.

Headsets are inherently a horrible idea because they combine piss poor headphones with a piss poor microphone and cost significantly more then they would cost separately, and I stress the significant part, its a joke. Not only do you get worse quality for the price, but because you are combining garbage parts with cheap wiring they are much more likely to break, and when they do, are harder to fix.

What you do want: A set of good headphones (depends on your budget), and a cheap desk mic. Personally, and many others on this forum will support this, I have the ATH AD700's. Great set of all around phones, perfect for listening to music and playing video games. They got decent bump, nothing that will blow you away, but their sound stage is incredible. They are open air though, so they do have some leakage.

Surround Sound... Since you have asked for headset help, it is also very likely that one of your criteria is that the headset you get recommended be Surround Sound because you think that will improve your piss poor kdr. First things first, you suck, accept that you are terrible at FPS games and move on. nothing will help that, no matter how much money you throw at it, I will always whoop that ass. But secondly, while the fact that it won't make you better is irrelevant, what is relevant is that fact that actual surround sound in headphones (putting multiple cheap drivers, all less then a half an inch from your ear) is only a gimmick, and a poor one at that. Not just a "oh it costs a lot and isn't that good" kind of gimmick. It actually adds NOTHING to your experience, gives you surround sound that can be less accurate then virtual surround sound with 2.0 headphones, and gives you significantly worse sound quality for the price, since you have very cheap drivers (there are 7 of them), and a cheap brand

If you still aren't convinced...lol go buy a razer, fatality, logitech, steelseries, turtle beach, etc and everytime you pick up those pieces of garbage I hope you are reminded of my post and your asinine decision.

Because those products are bad, give us a budget and your listening habits and we can recommend some really great headphones that I guarantee you will be satisfied with.
