Razer Tiamat 7.1 Reviews

Positive Reviews


Works on PS4


Pros: 7.1 for pc and 5.1 for console using Tritton Ax pro AMP, Most comfortable headphones I have owned.

Cons: Console a channel is lost which can lose a cue or a slight gap in listening which can cause virtual death in cod only.

Long time user of Tritton Ax pros, have logged over 1500 hours on 2 pairs and love them. I was told these will work with the tritton ax pro amp and they do in 5.1.   Bass sounds good especially when sniping you can feel it also you can adjust it to be high treble.   Very good sound separation.   Beautiful pair of headphones, I can now sound beast people in BF4 they stomp around like dinosaurs. With a different sound than my Trittons maybe it's because it has better noise cancelling it like suctions to your ears and are closed backs.   I put these only 2nd to the Trittons for sound quality and consistent separation in competitive and casual play mainly due to...

Non-Audiophile Gamer Review


Pros: True 7.1 surround sound, good isolation, retractable mic, can switch between headphone and speakers instantly

Cons: Bad for music, top band can be uncomfortable, can barely hear yourself talk while using it

The good: - 10 drivers (5 per ear) allow for amazing spatial awareness when watching movies/playing games. - The cushions on each ear are quite nice and provide a good amount of nose cancelling. - The mic is retractable for when not in use. - Allow for surround sound speakers to be hooked up and switched to with the press of a button. - Can be switched between 7.1 and 2.0 when necessary. - Can change the volume of sides, center, front, mic, subwoofer, and rear independently. - Removable side plates   The bad: - 7.1 has no bass while listening to music, 2.0 is better but it is still muddy and overall not a very good experience. - The top band has started to...

Quick review Razer Tiamat 7.1 Head phone


Pros: Good for gaming and movie

Cons: Bad for music

  This headphone have 10 DRIVERS so it's heavy and bulky headset   http://www.razerzone.com/tiamat/en/features   Gaming and movie (7.1 mode): enjoyable since you can spot location very easy.   Music (2.0 mode): if you listen music with 7.1 you can't not hear any bass. However, in 2.0 mode, the sound is extremly boomy and bloated.   Overall sound quality is muddy and bassy like a cheap close full can $ 50        

The worst sound quality I ever heard in my life.


Pros: Nice design, lights up

Cons: Very heavy, horrible sound quality, can't hear people behind or in front of you, not very comfortable

Before you read this, I think you should know that I'm not an audiophile and that English isn't my native language.   Let me start this on a positive note.   The design of Razer Tiamat 7.1 is very good. Even though the actual headset is big, it looks quite nice. The Razer logos on sides light up making this headset even more beautiful. But because the headset is big and heavy, it's not very comfortable for long periods of time. It just makes me want to put my head down and sleep.   But as far as the sound quality goes... It's not even close to earbuds that came with my Sony phone. In 7.1 mode, there is no bass at all but as soon as you switch it to 2.0,...

Mediocre but not bad


Pros: Strong bass, especially in games; good sound separation in supported games, well built and comfortable.

Cons: Requires lots of playing with an equilizer, terrible sound out of the box especially for music.

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 a bit to achieve nice results. Therefore you will need a proper sound card with equilizer settings.. I have been using them with SB Live! 24bit with modded drivers as well as with Asus Xonar U7. The design is very very good, they are very well built and really comfortable. I can hardly feel them...

Horrifying audio quality


Pros: Auto-adjusting headband, earcups very comfortable, stylish control module, speaker pass-through, microphone completely retracts

Cons: Terrible audio quality, extremely heavy

I picked these up knowing that they wouldn't come close to the quality level of my Sennheiser Momentum headphones, but needing a headset, I figured Razer's flagship would be up to the task. The packaging and control box were very nice, and the speaker pass-through dongle was a great touch. It's also rather comfortable, and the auto-adjusting headband is a pleasure to wear. The microphone stays out of the way, and slides up inside the headphones when not in use That said, though, the good ends there. In 2.1 stereo mode, the sound is very muffled, with almost no treble to speak of. The bass is muddy, and it really reminds me of the sound you get from PC headsets that cost a...
