    So i have had the Razer Megalodon 7.1 heaset for a while and absolutely LOVE it. I can see myself using non-Razer headsets again. The question im wrestling with currently is this: I am starting a new desktop build. Haven't decided weather or not i am gonna go with the Razer Leviathan yet or not (mostly because i havent looked into speakers yet) - knowing that those will definitely be coming later. anyway ALL peripherals will be in the chroma family (so full color spectrum capability) i am going to go with:
    Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Chroma Keyboard
    Razer Naga Epic Chroma Mouse

    So the question is if i make the switch from the Megalodons, is there currently (which i didnt see) or will there be, any headsets -hopefully in the Tiamat range- that have control units with chroma capabilities?

    My vote was 'Other' my favorite headset is the Razer Adaro DJ. The Kraken 7.1 isn't bad because it does the 7.1 with Chroma, but lacks the control pod you seek.

    @Razer|Mentality good choice, but no mic....
    Note: these may find their way into my hands for another use :cool:

    I voted for the "Other" -- mostly because I haven't tried any over the ears headphones from Razer yet. However, if you want something decent that has a mic for those times, but you still want the Adaro DJ for everything else, then I'd highly recommend looking at the Hammerhead Pro. It's very portable, can be used on your PC, on your phone or wherever else you may need/want a mic and still has the exceptional sound that we've come to expect from Razer. It curls up into it's little carrying case really nicely when it's not in use, so you can take it anywhere. Definitely a good side option for when you want a mic sometimes, but you want your control pad and over the ears for a huge majority of your listening pleasures. :)

    Couldn't you always just get something like an AntLion Modmic or desktop microphone?, and attach it to your Adaro DJs? True it doesn't have chroma capabilities, but getting something like a desktop microphone would have better mic quality...

    But... just a reminder, the Kraken Pro 7.1 Chroma has a digital mic... you can hear a snippet of the difference between a digital microphone and an analog microphone on the Kraken Pro 7.1 Chroma product page.

    But I would cast my vote to the Kraken Pro 7.1 Chroma. Having a full Chroma setup (why not chuck in a headphone stand too :)? ) would be epic.

    EDIT: I spy a mic..? http://i.imgur.com/sK9oNmL.jpg

    @Lafar Definitely like the idea of a headphone stand. Currently i am using my light over my desk but this new build the desk is gonna be the case, so a stand is vital! Did not know there was a Kraken Pro 7.1 Chroma, new digging will be done today, although the more i think about it the more i wish there were a wireless est with chroma.

    Anyway thanks to everyone for the great suggestions, i'll be looking around to figure out what i will end up with, oh and as an update the Leviathan is gonna make its way to my new desk !

    I personally think that the Razer Kraken Pro is an amazing choice. I got mine recently and am loving them so far. The sound quality is beautiful, the mic is decent, your friends can hear and understand you just fine, though it isn't anything you are going to start a youtube channel on (I am being a hypocrite over here seeing as I started my channel with my $20 turtle beaches XD). They are the most comfortable headphones I have ever used, and the green is a nice touch.

    I vote other because, I was recommend a plantronics (the one they use in League of Legend). I used it for a long time now, I loved it more than the Kraken 7.1 but the design I ike Kraken 7.1 more. But like I dont really care about the design, I only care about the comfort and sound quality. :blush:

    Tiamat 7.1 because that's what I use. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Though, if you're an audiophile, you'll probably want to skip any gaming headsets and get a proper one. :)

    I have the Tiamat 7.1 and it's really nice headset. Sound is great, it's comfortable so you can play with it for hours (I usually do) and the external module is a really good idea. In addition, if you have a home cinema (5.1 or 7.1), you can connect the module to it directly and pushing just a button, you switch from headset to home-cinema without any action in Windows...which is really great.

    Yeah. But I like to promote them as much as possible as they are my favorite headset and I use desk mic.

    I think you should just buy the Kraken Chroma. IMO it's fairly cheap for something of Razer's standard...

    I also recommend the Kraken 7.1 chroma: has virtual 7.1 surround sound, great digitaly enhanced mic, in general great bass and audio, chroma lighting and great portability with the foldable ear cups. ALl of this for a great price of just 99.84 USD. But if you're not interested in this then between the razer tiamat 7.1 and the kraken pro. It depends on the price range because the razer tiamat beats the kraken pro for audio but the tiamats mic is terrible so you might wanna get a seperate mic. The kraken pro on the other hand is a lot less expensive, looks really good (especially the neon series), has a resonably good mic and has fairly good audio but does not have 7.1 surround sound. If you are looking for great audio, great mic, 7.1, and still look cool then I would have to say "other" or go kraken 7.1 chroma.
     
  14. I just recommend the Kraken Chroma 7.1. Got it some weeks ago and i love it :)

    Im saddened that i haven't seen the blacksharks as a suggestion on here. So why dont i suggest them :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: So the Blacksharks are completely amazing, the audio quality is pretty good (i tend to play fps's and rpg's and i listen to all different kinds of metal) They look stunning, like really razer nailed the pilot theme. And the mic is great, whenever im in comms with some friends or randoms i regularly get compliments, plus its removable. I would highly recommend this headset to anyone looking for a comfortable, reliable, nice sounding, amazing looking, and overall great headset.
     
  16. What do you mean by external module?

    Edit: Oh, just saw the product page. That looks nifty. What does it do exactly?

    I have to switch on the back of my pc, from speakers to headsets because apparently I cannot use the front panel. It it really annoying when I want to use headset/mic that I have to crawl under the table and switch jack.

    This module will avoid you to switch physically! You do connect the 5.1 home cinema with cables to the module and then with one button, you switch from headset to home cinema...easy like hell! ;)
     
  18. So what if you don't have a fancy 5.1 or 7.1 system but merely 2 half-decent speakers? I assume that will work too?

    I have a Sennheiser PC360 Pro Gaming Headset and it's amazing, very nice sound, very nice mic, headband, ear comfort and breath-ability of the cups. Works well with Razer Surround Sound. As much as I love Razer, so far I've seen no reason to switch my headset out yet :) When this one goes, I'll look into a Razer headset.
