This review is from: Razer Megalodon Gaming Headset 7.1 Surround Sound (Accessory)
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.
