    I just got a set of the Man O War, and in the 24 hours that i have had them, I LOVE THEM. my only issue is they are not on synapse 3 yet, and after getting a BWv2, Basilisk, Firefly, and HDK, i completely moved away from synapse 2. I really do not want to reinstall it because the last time i did, it really messed things up between the two programs. But i would Really like to have my lights on the MOW on, and would like to be able to tinker with the equalizer and what not. Is there any w10 temporary replacements for at least the Razer Surround?

    Bump....I also have this problem with the Man o war not being supported by Synapse 3. Recently I purchased the Man o war, Huntsman Elite, Hyperflux Mamba and Firefly, Nommo Chroma & Razer Base Station Chroma. Since I just bought these brand new off the shelf, I figured it would be supported by the latest software, since it was automatically installed by the Razer Huntsman Elite. Nope. I had to download Synapse 2, to use the Man o war. Lame.

    It's silly to buy all new stuff, and have to run two different pieces of software running in the background consuming resources for the same brand of products.

    The Man O War should definitely be added to supported devices by Synapse 3 a long time ago.

    Can someone please work on this?
    I chose to buy the best from Razer. Right now Steelseries makes the best gaming headset at over $300+. I decided to go all Razer, so I didn't have to run two different pieces of software. And that's exactly what I'm doing with Razer :-(

    Yeah it's frustrating. I ended up just sticking to S3 and letting the windows sonic make the surround effects. I had installed S2 but it seemed to half steal all my devices, but then they didn't show up on either one.

    What's strange about the whole thing, is that the Man o war seems to be the best wireless solution currently offered by Razer. It doesnt make sense to have it on old software...making the user run 2 separate software suites in the background. Can you still control the Chroma lighting without S2 on your Man o war?

    Nope. They seem to be default set to off. At the moment really doesn't bother me, I'll get longer battery for it.

    When I had S2 installed I turned up the mic monitoring and it kept the settings after I uninstalled it, so there is that.

    Interesting. I'd rather them straighten this whole thing out, by adding support to Synapse 3......

    Oh absolutely! I will not deny that is the required action. Especially since, like you said, it's a relatively new device. I can understand my last keyboard (Black widow Ultimate 2013) not being supported, it was old and technically outdated. But this headset is rather new.

    Hopefully this will be rectified soon, in a timely manner.

    Could Razer at least response their solution in this thread so as to ease our frustration ? I faced the same issue all my Razer products are in S3 and i separately had to run S2 to control my War O Man.
