Razer Chimaera 5.1 Wireless Gaming Headset Review

 

New wireless headset brings creative new ideas to surround sound gaming audio, but comes with a few limiting factors.

optical audio, comfortable, stylish, light weight

pricey, the range is only about 15ft with no LoS, 20 with LoS. Standing right outside the office window I get lots of interference, while 20ft away in the kitchen there is none... so long as I can SEE the transceiver, as soon as its out of LoS i get...
