    The Razer Megalodon is the best headset that I've ever owned. I regularly do long gaming sessions of 8 hrs or longer and this headset stays comfortable throughout. The mic is excellent and even though you don't think that it will reach your mouth, this doesn't stop it picking up your voice perfectly. Sound quality is also very good, with great bass.

    Pros:
    Very very comfortable
    Great build quality
    Great sound quality
    Comes with hard travel case (best feature in my opinion)
    Amazing presentation, box etc..

    Cons:
    Price (but you definitely get what you pay for)
    7.1 virtualisation will only work with at least a 5.1 input signal (e.g. when watching a DVD, or a dolby game like Crysis), if you run the 7.1 off a stereo input it makes voices sound like they're underwater!! (although normal sounds are ok, as all it does is copy the front stereo channels to the rear channels)

    This headset is just plain fantastic. The deep booming bass, the crisp clear trebles... The 7.1 virtualisation is so convincing that it gave me a fright at first!
    I'm heavily into my gaming (first person shooters mainly) and this set has honestly increased my frag count - you can really feel where you are being attacked from with the 7.1 enabled!
    The intuiative control box sits happily in its place just below my screen. The rubber feet mean it doesnt slip all over the place. The braided material cabling is a revelation! It NEVER knots, tangles or pulls! It doesnt get caught on anything! And you can coil it up easily when not in use.

    The set is EXTREMELY comfortable. I dont think anyone will argue with that. The mic is crystal clear.

    What else can I say? Expensive? Absolutely... but, worth every penny... after one game of COD 4 you will know where that extra money went and you wont regret a single penny.... After all 'Quality remains long after price is forgotten...'

    Another classic addition to the already esteemed Razer line of products.

    Well done fellas!

    I have had this headset for a week now and I am greatly pleased with my purchase. The fears I had from reading some reviews regarding windows 7 64bit compatability and the headset turning off never arised, as suggested by Razer these being faults with windows seems to be accurate and would make sense that these no longer occur with the windows updates. The headset came in beautiful casing including a hardy travel case which will be perfect for LANing, it worked immediately upon plugging it in. The separate volume control is brilliantly convenient, the ability to with the press of just a single button change from 7.1 to 2.0 (useful for when the music/ videos you are watching do not support 5.1/ 7.1) is also nice.
    I have done 2 5-7 hour gaming sessions and a few short sessions, through each of these the headset remained very comfortable and sat gently and easily on my head. I also noticed that the material on the top band of the headset is different to that surrounding the ears, it is easier to clean and seems very resistant to grease so over long term use should not have the problems I had with my Siberia headset over time.
    The surround sound is very accurate and requires no fiddling around. The mic is of high sound quality and again easy to adjust the volume of due to the controls being on the separate control/ volume/ sound card box. Althogh the price tag is relatively high, the quality you receive for the price isn't. From when you first open the packaging to when you wear it a week down the line you can feel the quality. I have yet to find a feature that I felt was lacking for what I needed it for or not deserving of the price tag 5/5, 10/10. I am one very happy customer.

    Good headphones, but suffer from power issues razer have yet to fix.

    They recently made a new installer for the firmware updater as well. Be extremely cautious using this, because the application LOVES to crash mid update, destroying your headphones and going through razers overly long process of getting your product exchanged.

    So I've had this headset for almost 1 year now, 11 months to be precise. I purchased this after watching a few video reviews on youtube before really making my final decision and I don't regret my decision.

    The sound is brilliant. It can play all audio very loud without distorting. The bass is very nice. I like how you can fine tune the virtual surround sound speakers individually using the control box. The headset is supposed to use its on-board audio processing which is "supposed" to ease off the audio pressure on your cpu, however this may be true but I found my control box getting very hot, you could feel the heat from under it as if it was not getting enough cooling.

    I like how you are only 1 button away from muting your mic, changing the sensitivity and the microphone level. This makes fine tuning the headset great for things such as Skype, Ventrilo or TeamSpeak.

    The downside I have found is that there may possibly be a design flaw in the cooling of this box because after 8 months of usage, the headset started to freeze and I was not able to reset it unless I took the USB cable out of the PC for several seconds and put it back in. It began happening on the odd occasion, but now it has been happening 1-3 times a day including when I'm not playing any games or music, it just seems that a component inside the box has become faulty from excessive heat from prolonged/daily use of the headset. Yes, I did update the firmware yadda yadda yadda. I never had any issues with it not being recognized or not detected properly on my system.

    The good thing is that this headset was covered by a 1 year warranty by Razer and as Amazon is an official reseller of the Razor products, I contacted Amazon and they are sending me a new one.
