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

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...

RAZER Tiamat 7.1

 

You -must- have a 7.1 capable audio device, either a sound card or built in audio on your motherboard. I personally had a difficult time noticing the 7.1 surround sound anyway. I'd like to see a feature on this headset that allows me to control the...

The 7.1 surround sound is pretty neat. Build quality seems to be pretty sturdy. Comes in a nice box

I find myself constantly having to adjust my EQ levels for for different things. One setting might sound decent for listening to music, but then sound terrible for listening to videos or gaming. The ear cups are a tad small for my head, so my ears...

Good quality sound but...

 

Great product even though Razer's taking hits on release quality products.

Physical sound drivers make 3D sound locating better than virtual / simulated 3D sound ; Excellent for earlier COD games such as Modern Warfare 4. Black Ops muffles positional sound to prevent users from taking advantage of players without headphones ;...

Buzzing when using USB ports built into the Motherboard ; Buzzing is removed when using a powered USB wall wart as they are called (phone charger) ; Often on sale / Black Friday, that's when I would pounce on these ; Have to use the 7.1 for full...
