    5.0 out of 5 stars Far superior 21 Aug 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    I had a old set of wired headphones, Sennheiser Hd201, they broke on me twice but these have been amazing compared to those. The microphone is clearly better than the standard xbox supplied wired headset (which I ended up modifying so people could hear me) every one can hear me now crystal clear. The sound is Amazing on this headset with the bass being just right however if you think the bass is too low you can boost microphone gain from the sound settings (windows PC).

    Pros
    -Comfy
    -light
    -comes with Xbox wires
    -Sturdy
    -AMAZING sound quality
    -12 hours battery life
    -separate rechargeable batteries (may be a con from some points of view)
    -good looking
    -Decent sized earcups (big ears and small will both fit well)

    Cons
    -No PC wires (2 3.55mm - 3.55mm cables for audio and mic)
    -not completely wireless, still requires wire to controller

    All in all if you are willing to spend an extra 2 on some PC wires (if you are using for the PC) and dont mind a small cable from your xbox controller for the microphone to work with your xbox you will be thrilled with these. :)

    EDIT*
    Unfortunately after a week of use i noticed that the wireless connection for my router was breaking up as i used the headphones, this is because they are both on a 2.4 ghz frequency but the standard wireless xbox controller also runs off 2.4 ghz and therefore renders the controller useless (these were designed with the razer onza in mind). I decided to send them back and then buy the 5.1 headset which has had no problems so far, I have had the 5.1 headset for a month.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Razer Chimaera 2.1 Headset 16 Sep 2013
    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
    **Read the rest of theses Reviews they cover it all** - However this must be said;

    I have sent theses back as the mic quality was unacceptable! These are NOT worth the 100 price tag, I got the Plantronics GameCom 780 for 36.99 and they are far more superior. - I am going to look into the Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Really bad. 15 Sep 2012
    By Fred H
    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
    First of all, the headphones were great for a while, albeit uncomfy.
    However, after about 5 months they wouldn't charge and therefore I cannot use them.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely perfect. 29 Aug 2012

    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    So I previously used Turtle Beaches X11's, which were pretty good. There was a distinct noise when a film went silent etc and the cable knotted CONSTANTLY but aside from that they served me well. Unfortunately they broke through wear and tear and as such I was after a replacement.

    Having purchased recently a gaming mouse and mouse pad from Razer I was aware of the brand so when the Chimaera headset was suggested I had a look.

    As with any Razer product it's lovely to look at and feels well made, it's matte black finish doesn't make me think I'm some gaming chav with a neon headset stuck on my head.

    It includes 2 rechargeable AAA batteries that last 12 hours off a 3 hour charge when you put it back on the stand.

    I wanted to use these not only for xbox but also PC use and so I've purchased some AUX-IN cables from Griffin Griffin GC17103 Auxiliary Audio Cable 3ft. Flat which connect both mic and audio to and from my Mac/PC. Bit of a shame they don't come provided but meh...

    I've been sat listening to my music (DnB & Indie so quite ... differing noises) on them to test the sound out and they perform brilliantly.

    Only downside, as I've seen in other reviews is that the bottom of the cup isn't perhaps as tight as it could be. I really don't notice it anymore, it was just from comparing my previous headset.
