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