The Review:
When I tested this fabulous headset, I did not have the Razer BarracudaTM AC-1 Gaming Audio Card so I cannot attest to the ultimate quality of this product. Using it with my system, I was impressed with the true surround sound capabilities and I must admit that I was blown away. I will try to get Razers sound card so that I would get the ultimate sound experience for all my gaming. The set up was simple because of the color coding and so anyone who is not color blind can plug all the cables in without turning to the simply written instructions. (Most of it is in pictures anyway).

There are really only two things that I look for in a head set and those are comfort on my ears. The comfort factor is one of the most important because if they don't fit right, you'll want to take them off and hence what is the point. Secondly is the quality of the sound and to be honest, Razer met and exceeded both of those requirements for me so my hat is off to Razer, great job.
