I bought my Megalodons about 3 months ago and have thoughly played and tested them befor making this review.
Let me start by how they feel on ur head. Imagin sitting at a table beer in one hand and some nice warm tits dropping down over ur head. yup their comfy.
How do they sound ?? well in CSS u can hear shells hitting the ground. thses puppies can play every sound the games putting out and not distort. for movies their amazing to.
Quality and shipping. The box they came in was like an awemored tank! and the crafting of this item is mint. These truly are the cream of the crop.
Price is well .... unfortunelty like everything today expensive for good quality. but hey if u got the money to buy them just do it. u wont look back. and if u dont like them well. sellem to ur buddy. he will like them and be happy to give u half price :D
5/5 good job razer.

I used this headset for about a week, the sound was pure, and sound exactly like 7.1 channel surround sound. At first it sounded muffled compared to my old headphones, only because I was used to hearing sound with a lack of bass. Though after a few days, I thought it sounded absolutely perfect. It works well with all games I have tested, including source games. The drivers install instantly for both Windows XP x32, and Windows 7 x64 without any problems. However, there were a few bandwidth issues, which I expect because I also have a Logitech G15 gaming keyboard. As well as with most Windows 7 x64 owners, there were issues with sound cutting out, which I also experienced. However after disabling application priorities for the device in the control panel, it seemed to happen less frequently.
However, every night when I went to sleep, I would tuck them away back in their case, but leave the Maelstrom Panel on my desk, and tuck the wires underneath my keyboard. However, last night I did not and I suffer the consequences. My cat. whom I love dearly, decided to have a feast on a perfect, tender but soft wire. I woke up this morning to a loud thump, to find my headset cable ripped apart at ease, and the headset not working at all. The LED's would not light up, and there was absolutely no sound produced at all.
My suggestion is, do not be lazy. Take care of this headset, and take the time to put it away in a case every night. Especially if you have an animal who may check your desk for treats at night. As an alternative, it may fit in the box easier with the wires and prevent them from twisting or bending.
Listening to these old headphones makes sound seem black and white.

I got these headphones in expecting them to sound like a cheap pair of 150.00 headphones. For you audiophiles out there you know what I mean: tinny, shallow, airy, extreme bass distortion, etc. I found none of that with the Megalodons. In fact I would directly compare the 2.0 sound quality of these headphones with that of the Bose quiet comfort 2’s and 3’s. The 7.1 is amazing. In every game I have played I can actually hear what is behind me, and the direction of it, at all times. Thank you so much Razer for these amazing beasts that have just “razerfied” my world.

This works just like it should. Awesome sound quality, button to switch between 2.0 and 7.1 for stuff that doesn't support surround sound. The mic is good quality too. All those retards who say the mic doesn't work obviously just don't know how to set it up or something... although I didn't really have to set mine up, it just worked. Anyway their problems are user-specific, and should not deter you from buying this.
