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.

Razer Tiamat Elite 7.1 Surround Sound gaming headset

 

Impressive volume., Decent bass response., Excellent audio quality., Eye-catching design., Comfortable to use over long periods

Not the most portable of headsets., Expensive

Razer’s Tiamat Elite 7.1 surround sound gaming headset is a sturdily constructed, head-turning piece of gaming kit. It delivers exceptional audio quality, very decent volume bang and will ultimately boost your audio gaming experience to new...

Verdict

 

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...

Great Sound.

 

Overall, great headset. Make sure your on-board sound card can handle it or buy a dedicated sound card. And play with the settings, turn on Base Management, Play with the speaker fill. Change some of the equalizer settings, or use room correction....

I am going to start by saying that I have held off on the review of this because I've had a lot of up and down moments with these and while the end result is the main thing that matters, I do want to go over a few things for those who may be looking...

While there may be alot in terms of cons, most of them can be work-arounds ; I will agree with most that this headset has a low amount of base. But the work around is just having a good sound card set-up. I personally have the standard on-board realtek...

Excellent

 

I have the Soundblaster Zx card and I will admit that it was a royal pain to trial and error setup this system. My best advice is to try the setting mentioned in the Pro's section.

This is the best headset that I have ever owned. I have had several in the years before and this one blows the rest away ; This headset is not technically a headset from a computer setting standpoint. For those having trouble, try setting this up as a...

Rough use will cause a bit of wobble with the mic but it still works good
