    This comes with a charging / docking dongle (search this thread earlier for a picture) - it does not come with a stand, but it does fit nicely on the stand razer offers - you just need to shell out the extra cash.

    This looks good, is the sound quality better than the tiamat though ?

    I don't have the Tiamat, but I'm betting the answer here is no. This set is optimized for mobility and as a result the audio isn't likely to be as good as a wired set since it has to do a lot more... It's wireless, has chroma support, and has power management considerations that the tiamat doesn't have to worry about. As a result, it's going to have to compromise a little somewhere. That's not to say that it's a bad headset - it's just not likely to be as good audio quality-wise as a wired headset - especially a higher end one like the Tiamat.
     
  4. What are the driver requirements? Will this work on GNU/Linux ? IE Ubuntu or SteamOS?
     
  5. How good is it compared to other types of headsets?

    Well I'm still having odd issues with the headset. I have to manually set it as default to be able to use it, and then it only works in-game with some titles. When I'm done gaming I have to manually set the speakers back to default to hear anything out of them. Desktop and browser audio doesn't work even when the headset is set as default.

    Does the 2.4gHz influence your Wi-Fi?

    Waiting for a Tiamat 7.1 Chroma...

    That will be the day.

    Honestly, I think _eventually_ it'll all be Chroma - no real reason not to IMO. If you're going to put down the kind of money some of these peripherals cost, then the ability to change the color of the LEDs - even if it only allows you to change the static colors (from Razer Green) - that's a really nice feature.

    LEDs are nice, but if you built your setup around red LEDs, it stinks to have an oddball component here and there.

    I have to say I am really enjoying my ManO'War headset. I have had zero issues and the sound and mic quality are excellent. They are more comfortable than my Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma

    So far, my experience has been about the same, the only knock whatsoever is that the bass is a little lighter than I thought and the finish on these (the matte finish) apparently got scratched already - not exactly super durable since I've been fairly careful with them.

    Any possible chance on a travel case for these? Loving the headset but want to take it with me without getting it broken. Something along the lines of what Astro has for their headsets. Stiff and durable and protects the headset.
     
  14. Just got these today and have a question. I have the volume in synapse, my computer, and the device all the way up and it is only putting out mid-low level of volume. I am sure i am missing something obvious...could anyone help me out? I know this headset can got easily double or triple how loud it is playing for me.

    Need a headphone stand ;P
     
  16. My old Razer headset also had seperate volume control from the computers volume itself...with the Manowar if i adjust the volume knob on the headset it controls the volume for the computer as well....anyone know how to fix this?

    Hmmm, not sure what you mean here. The Man'OWar adjusts the volume for itself for me - I have it setup so that when I connect the Man'OWar it is the default audio output, then from there it sets it's own volume. There really shouldn't be a concept of "computer volume", there should be volume controls for whatever is the current selected audio device (could be speaker system, headphones, a bluetooth speaker, your monitor - if it has speakers, etc.).

    The only thing I could imagine is that there's something buggy going on with how your computer is switching the primary audio source. If the headphones are not being connected as the primary (default) audio source, then when you adjust the volume, then you'll see the behavior you mentioned - since I think the Man'OWar controls are setup to control the volume for the default audio device.

    This could be a bug in that the controls should be set to look for the Man'OWar and only control that volume. If that's the case, you should definitely create a support ticket - it might have been an oversight and just needs to be added to synapse in a subsequent update.
     
  18. Ya I am not sure. I plug it in and set it as the default audio device (otherwise it gets no sound at all) and once I do so the knob on the headset controls the volume for everything. When i adjust it the volume level indicator on the side of the screen comes up twice.....the Razer one as well as the computer one.
