Razer Tiamat 7.1 Gaming Headset Review


With the Tiamat 7.1, Razer is redefining the top end of the gaming audio line. Where previous headsets have had trouble creating a surround gaming experience through just two drivers, the Tiamat fits what is essentially an entire surround sound system...

High price; somewhat bulky

Razer Tiamat 7.1 Review


When Razer announced the Tiamat 7.1 surround sound headset equipped with 10 drivers (speakers), a good chunk of the gaming community got very excited by the prospect of being able to play with surround sound without making the neighbors go [...]

In the end, I think that the Tiamat 7.1 edge goes beyond its audio quality: it’s the industrial design – the whole package. The sad reality is that most people don’t really discern the differences in terms of sound “quality” (between “very good” and...

Razer Tiamat 7.1


The Razer Tiamat 7.1 is an excellent-sounding gaming headset with plenty of bass, and while it's pricey for a wired headset, it's one of the best we've seen yet.

Excellent bass response. Comfortable

Expensive. Surround sound still doesn't image quite as well as a surround sound speaker system

Razer Tiamat 7.1 Review– More than just a 7.1 surround sound headset


True 7.1 gaming headset. Allows you to switch between using a headset or your desktop speaker with a button press.

Here we have one of their most ambitious products yet, the Razer Tiamat 7.1 (Elite 7.1 Surround Sound Analogue Gaming Headset).

I must admit that I was really looking forward to testing out the Razer Tiamat 7.1 headset because as far as features go, the Tiamat has the lot. TRUE 7.1 Surround Sound with 5 drivers per ear-cup, Noise-filtering microphone and a control box that puts...

Razer Tiamat 7.1 True Surround Sound Headset Review


The Razer Tiamat is the world’s first true 7.1 surround sound headset, and boy have Razer set the bar high for any future true 7.1 headsets we may see. The headset oozed quality, not only in looks, but also performance wise. There was no compromise in...

Consumer review by: James P. (

Great Headset --IF-- you have a 7.1 sound card


You --NEED-- a good 7.1 sound card for these to work. While some motherboards do offer 7.1 sound, be aware that these headphones will NEVER sound any better than the sound system that is driving them. I think a lot of people experience frustration with...

The Tiamat 7.1 is a large, somewhat heavy headset, but it is actually very comfortable to wear. It self-adjusts to your head and doesn't squeeze your ears with excessive pressure. Physically, the equipment is beautiful--you can see the drivers through...

There are a couple of things worth noting. The color bands on the plugs require bright light to distinguish blue from green and yellow from light red. A bright flashlight can be a great help when installing ; Also, the markings on the desktop...

Review of, and Guide to razer Tiamat initial set up


They should light up the sound options on the dial so that those new to the product can find what they are trying to adjust in the dark. On some installations of windows (even of the same version) the realtek sound drivers don't always want to work...

The best sounding headset I have purchased to date. Bass is great and when new it will go down to 1-4db range. Clear sounding. The control box is nice and easy to use once you get familiar with it. It is also VERY comfortable to wear, which allows for...

Like the last two razer headsets I have owned, the right ear piece starts to die after a year and a half. They were supposed to have fixed that with this model, but did not
