The Razer Piranha is engineered from the ground up to blend performance, long hours of comfort and functionality, to deliver realistic in-game audio that will satisfy the needs of the most demanding gamer – You.

Comfortable ; Threaded cable ; In line volume and Mic control attached mic ; Cool LED's

Ear Pieces that sit on ears ; Lets outside noise in

The Piranha is no exception. There are multiple views of the headset on the packaging even drawing showing the mic fold in and out of the headset, detailed specifications and a list of features in several languages. Oddly enough there are no quotes...

I tried out the Piranha first as just earphones, to get acclimated to the fit and make any necessary adjustments. At first they were a little uncomfortable on the ears. I'm used to over-ear headphones and I found that the Piranha pressed against my...

Conventional wisdom says you'd be crazy to put a piranha on your head, but Razer's never been one to walk the line. Today HardwareLogic dons Razer's new Piranha Gaming Communicator, and we'll tell you if these headphones pack enough bite for the...

The Piranha Gaming Communicator represents Razer's second foray into the audio headset market, this time focusing on a different segment. Whereas the 5.1 surround sound HP-1 Barracudas set its sights on the professional gamer, the Communicator takes...

In my opinion Razer Piranha is one of the best headsets out there. The real deciding factor for me, was Piranha's true-to-life audio quality, and the adjustable, noise-filtering microphone. Its comfortable to use and the ergonomics are excellent. ...

True-to-life audio quality, •  Comfortable, ergonomic and adjustable head phones, •  Adjustable, noise-filtering microphone

Razer Piranha Gaming Communicator Review


Headsets are a hard thing to shop for. Unlike a graphics card, which has a definite speed and feature set, headsets are pretty subjective. Yes, you usually see the dynamic range of the headset, if they are closed or open ear, and if they have an...

Amazing sound quality ; Good microphone ; Very comfortable ; Provides a decent amount of sound isolation ; Glows (who doesn't like glowing?!) ; Long cable ; In-line volume controller

USB plug, but not USB audio

When I first received the Razer Piranha Gaming Communicator, I had high expectations; after all, it is a Razer product. These high expectations were worth having too, as the Piranha met every one of them. The sound quality blew me away, leaving me...

Razer Piranha Gaming Communicator


Razer has bolstered its impressive range of peripherals with a gamer-oriented headset, but will it close in for the kill or swim with the fishes?

Further to that, I also found that the headset was just a bit too small for me, so that the padding on the headband that's designed to rest on the top of the head, actually sat around half a centimetre off it. Passing them around, various other people...

Excellent price/performance ratio, + Volume control, + Microphone control, + Long cable, + Looks, + Reasonable performance, + Boom microphone

Can be uncomfortable for extended periods

So how well did the RAZER Gaming Communicator perform in today's performance review? The RAZER Piranha Gaming Communicator was a bit of a mixed bag if I'm to be honest. The build quality is typical RAZER - hard wearing and functional with good...
