I don't mind my pair of vengeance1500,
A bit loud on the bass side but it's okay.

Though I'm not exactly a sound guy.

Also I got my unsleeved extensions and paracord so, time for my sleeving tonight!

I can happily recommend the Razer Tiamat 2.2... Super comfy and they sound awesome. (I'm no audiophile, but I am certainly impressed and they cost me just short of €90) thumb.gif

That's not a bad one either. Between the two the Tiamat would have much better bass response, having separate drivers for the bass, but it depends if that's something you want.

I don't know the exact length of the cord... Since I have it routed under my desk... can't measure... But did a quick search and on the interwebs it said it's over 10ft... I'd say from what I remember when I unpacked mine, it is ridiculously big.

Ice Reign was spot on. The bass response on these is really good. It's clear and precise. And it gets even better if you use the Razer synapse 2.0 software for virtual 7.1. On that matter, it is amazingly and surprisingly precise. I have a REALLY good perception of where the sound comes.

I always thought that Razer was a overrated and overpriced peripheral company... But the Tiamat 2.2 susprised me alot.


EDIT: Also... specs wise... the Tiamat blow those clear off the water.

I have the Sennheiser PC350SE's and they are AWESOME! Same as PC360 but closed design rather than open backs. Thoroughly recommend them or PC-360's

I was curious as to how the virtual 7.1 performed. That's one of my biggest hang ups on weather to grab the 2.2 or the 7.1 headset. Having true 7.1 would be nice but is it really worth the money if the 2.2 performs adequately. Do you use them for FPS type games where having the directional perception has some advantage? Thanks for the input!

Thanks for the input!

Heh, I waged myself in a huge war trying to decide what headset to get for looong time... They were either too expensive, or uncomfortable, or only stereo... In the end I was between the Tiamat 7.1, the Tiamat 2.2 (after hearing about the Synapse 2.0) and the Sennheiser PC 333D (Virtual 7.1 with USB sound card).

Ditched the 7.1, because listening to music or any stereo only source would render them underpowered due to the small 30mm drivers that are used for front L/R (As it happens with all true surround headsets, read about the Rocat Kave too)... Ditched the Sennheiser PC 333D due to all reviews saying that they were too tight on your head and the can foam was not too comfy either...

After seeing quite a few reviews on the Tiamat 2.2, how nicely they sounded and their comfort I took the chance at the Synapse and bought them (Also the cheaper of all 3 I had in mind).


As for audio positioning precision... It is NOT perfect... but damn good.

At first I was skeptical of the software, but after playing some games like CS:GO (Although not much), Borderlands 2, Prop Hunt on GMod and Skyrim (Mostly) I was genuinely impressed. (I play alot of first person genre games so... positioning was pretty much mandatory) Synapse does a great work, the plus is that it's compatible with any sound card and headphones (it is basically a virtual sound card that "sits" on top of the hardware to emulate the 7.1)

So, the Tiamat 2.2 + Synapse 2.0 it was either impress me or bust... It impressed me.

Also, music wise, it sounds great thumb.gif Deep and responsive bass... Mids are slightly overpowered in some cases... Highs are definitely good as well. The headset packs a punch, enough for you to feel them vibrating on bassy tracks tongue.gif



Sorry for the long reply, but... yeah... I wanted to be as thorough as possible. xD

Ditched the 7.1, because listening to music or any stereo only source would render them underpowered due to the small 30mm drivers that are used for front L/R (As it happens with all true surround headsets, read about the Rocat Kave too)... Ditched the Sennheiser PC 333D due to all reviews saying that they were too tight on your head and the can foam was not too comfy either...

After seeing quite a few reviews on the Tiamat 2.2, how nicely they sounded and their comfort I took the chance at the Synapse and bought them (Also the cheaper of all 3 I had in mind).


As for audio positioning precision... It is NOT perfect... but damn good.

At first I was skeptical of the software, but after playing some games like CS:GO (Although not much), Borderlands 2, Prop Hunt on GMod and Skyrim (Mostly) I was genuinely impressed. (I play alot of first person genre games so... positioning was pretty much mandatory) Synapse does a great work, the plus is that it's compatible with any sound card and headphones (it is basically a virtual sound card that "sits" on top of the hardware to emulate the 7.1)

So, the Tiamat 2.2 + Synapse 2.0 it was either impress me or bust...



Sorry for the long reply, but... yeah... I wanted to be as thorough as possible. xD

No apologies needed! Thank you for all the info. Reading reviews are great and all but its always better to hear directly from the people that use the products and use them the same way. I think I may pick up a set when I see them on sale the next time! Thanks again!
