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...

The Razer Piranha is a worthy follow-up to the Razer Barracuda in some regards, though not in others. While the sound performance is clearly above-average at worst and the design is interesting to look at, my experience with the Piranhas turned out to...

Consumer review by:

very poor headset
