First let me say in the area of sound quality this is by far one of the best headsets I've ever owned. If sound quality(not volume) is your only concern, read no further and just hit purchase.
Overall a really great headset but there were a few things that have started getting on my nerves after a few months of use:


First:

The headset is made for giants... I'm not sure what they were thinking or whose head they measured, but I've got a pretty decently sized noggin(7+3/4 for those that know hats). On it's SMALLEST setting it barely keeps itself on my head. Knock the head size down about 2 sizes on the next model guys. On it's largest setting... I could probably fit this on a bear... seriously.

Second(slight annoyance):

The volume control brick. Sleek, inventive, next generation appearance, very nice... EXCEPT that the brick is built into the headset wire. While this is NORMALLY not an issue, this particular volume brick is literally as large as the palm of your hand(3.5 x 3.5 in). The size of the brick isn't really an issue though; whereas the mere 3.5ft of cable between the brick and the headset IS. While 3.5ft of wire is fine for gaming & music listening while working, it's not so great when leaning back to take in a movie or relax while listening to some tunes. If this is attempted be prepared for the brick to come leaping at you from the desk and bringing with it anything between the two of you on the desk... usually have to put the brick in my lap for 'leaning' PC time.

Third(again, only slight):

Slightly disappointed with the internal amplifier. The sound Quality is fantastic but the amplification volume leaves a bit to be desired. Don't misunderstand me, for the everyday normal use, it's perfectly fine in fact even quite loud by normal standards. However for Musicians, Audio Majors, and 'Hardcore' Gamers; you may consider looking in to a small amplifier if you don't already have a separate sound card installed, turning the volume up through the PC and headset alone always leaves me wanting more volume to rock to. Again only a mild annoyance, but for the price one has to pay for this headset, there should be NO disappointment where sound is involved.

The Razer Megalodon 7.1 Surround Sound USB Gaming Headset is fantastic, and despite the 3 comments above I still feel the headset is a high quality, top of the line headset. I feel I've made a good buy and I don't regret my purchase in the least. I'll be keeping an eye out for their next model which I hope addresses some of the above. :)


Hope the review is helpful, thanks for reading.
