“I bought these due to morbid curiosity; Skullcandy made a gaming headset? I figured I try them out because I was getting tired of my X12s, which had replaced my X11s. The SLYRs have now replaced my X12s. One fact to know about these headphones are that they were mostly designed by Astro Gaming, as Skullcandy bought them. This changes everything The sound quality is astounding and...” --Koenigseggfire
“Well worth the AU$250 I paid. I liked them so much I bought 2. Padding is AWESOME! Both, around the ear (my ears fit snugly inside) and the padding over my head. I can happily game for hours and not have a skull pain. This was very important to me. I bought some GameTech cans and they had great ear pads - but the weight of the cans caused the overhead pad strap to really crush down on...” --ausgamer
“Wonderful headset. Very underrated because razer gets a lot of hate for being mainstream ” --kigisaru
“Just got these as an upgrade from my Philips SHG7980 headset. Straight out of the box, they sound great, no equalizer setting modification required. Just plug the headset and get immersed in movies and games. The bass is definitely what makes this headphone shine. Club/rock/dubstep music: perfect with Asus Xonar DGX sound-card (dolby headphone: enabled) Gaming: best when used...” --b3roldan
Mad Catz CD79051100A1/04/1 Call of Duty: Black Ops Dolby Digital True 5.1 ProGaming Headset for PC - Powered by TRITTON
“Updated 12/3/2014 Tested Astro Mixamp and Slyr headphones Amazing setup as well little bassy but good for this game "tested in ghosts". Tritton ax pro true 5.1 Have owned these since 2011, I'm a hardcore gamer since Doom1 not an audiophile but my hearing is ultra sensitive I wouldn't know if I was one anyway. I know what has worked for me better than my stereo sets with sound separation and...” --GODJOEY
“These are my everyday gaming and music cans for like 10 years now through two sets of them. The bass response is unparalleled with USB powered built-in amplification and a dedicated 40 mm subwoofer driver. I imagine to get the same bass you would have to buy another can with a dedicated bass driver, and some do exist from different makers, but no one did it as clean as the razer barracuda....” --indopler
“I've owned this headset for about 1 year now I purchased it through this twitter account I follow called IGN deals. Got it for $200. I play regularly everyday for 4+ hours. And I see why there are no reviews for this headset considering it is one of the best and thats just what it's known for. It has a switch that gives you 3 different eq settings. The wireless receiver gives you the option for...” --MillzBaby
“Overall i would say the PS3 headset was a good purchase. It worked well and maintained its quality throughout lifetime of 3 years. Price of $99.99 is too expensive considering the quality you are getting. The creaking of the headset is amplified when put on and can get extremely annoying. Very cool design with a sleek way of adjusting volume, balance of voice and game, and...” --Eschock
“I will start by saying I went through 3 of these. All of which were under warranty, and I was by no means rough with them. The sound was nice, it had a decent bass compared to any of my other headsets. At first I really really liked these. They were comfortable, although the ear cups collected little hairs easily but you could easily replace those with the leather ones off Corsair's...” --DallasDanielle
“There are lots of bad reviews for those, however I must say that after properly calibrating them through an equilizer the muddy, cheap sound becomes much much better. In 7.1 mode for playing music those are absolutely horrendous, however if you use bass redirection and set crossover frequency at about 70hz they become quite nice. And if you use 2.0 mode you will need to play with the equilizer...” --yoceto
