1: There is a metal headband above the leather one that goes over the head, if you accidentally bump it or tap it, it sends a horrible high pitch hum through your head, like when you hit a tuning fork, you have to touch it again to make it stop. A HUGE flaw in this design and I think its the main reason they sell this for such a low price.
2: The mic is very hard to get into a comfortable position, no matter where I put it, i picks up my breathing and because these have no noise cancelling at all...the background noise can be heard better then me. I remove it whenever I dont need to talk. The mic makes me sound like Im speaking from inside a tin can.
3: The earcuffs are quite uncomfortable...they are made out of a material that is very coarse when worn for long periods of time.
4: I had a headset that I paid $16 for that sounded better then these. Although I have not really played with the EQ much yet, it shouldnt be that difficult to get good sound without hours of tweeking an EQ.
Overall very dissappointed with Razer, this headset shouldnt even be on the market. Of course this is only my opinion. I love Razer products for the most part, thats why this was so upsetting.
-non braided cable
-tad bit uncomfortable
-above average/below exceptional sound quality
Other than that, this is a very well rounded, stylish, and great headset. I would recommend.
The very first thing that irks me about this headset is it does not have a braided cable. For a $70 usb headset, a braided cable is not an unreasonable feature to have asked for.
That being said, the build quality of the Electra V2 is great. The earcups have a solid but soft padding, and the plastic around the earcups are matte. I know many people avoid the depression/expansion (D/E) headband system, but I love it. I have found that this headset is better than most other D/E headsets. The headband does not want to automatically pull back and release the tension. It will stay where you put it. The headband itself is also very comfortable. The black aluminum structural band is sturdy and flexible.
The microphone is what you’d expect for $70. The sound is better than some triple digit headsets I’ve used, it just lacks some compression. If you use a third party program to compress it a little, the mic sounds decent, unlike others might say. It’s really nice and convenient that it is detachable as I use the Blue Yeti microphone, even while gaming. However if I am on the go or simply do not feel like having a huge mic in my face I always have the Electra’s as an option.
Comfort is okay, for me. My ears tend to get sore and I my other wish is the earcups were slightly wider and deeper. Other than that I am able to use this headset for a few hours at a time so it is not a huge drawback, but something worth noting.
Sound experience is decent. This headset does a great job at higher frequencies, but lows to even mids can feel a little empty and shallow. If lows were a little more pronounced this would make for an exceptional listening experience. The blending of the ranges are there, the emphasis on lows are not. I’m not saying that it is bad by any means. I am just saying it’s not the best you can get for this price point in terms of audio quality.
Finally Razer Synapse allows this headset to excell over other headsets at stock purchase. The 7.1 surround is automatically configured if using the USB version and it works very well. There are a few options for enhancing sound and the microphone straight from your system tray: no need to open the app. The only downside I could see for some people is the light is not RGB, it is only G. For my black and green setup, this headset fits right in.
They're really comfortable. The sound is clean and balanced. The microphone it's not really that great I'd say. I'd recommend you to first listen to the mic quality in a Youtube video so that you're clear on what you're buying. The headband adjusts to your head, so you don't have to pull the headphones at all to feel comfortable.
Something I'm a bit concerned about is the feeling that the bass is great, yet not that powerful. I'm actually someone who upgraded from the Razer Electra to these pair of headphones and I was a bit dissapointed that the Electra —at least for me— sound better. This is so only because the bass is slightly more powerful in the Electra v1. [This is why I didn't give it 5 stars]
The Razer Surround it's an amazing thing. If you play FPP or sound-dependent games, this will help you incredibly. The software allows you to virtualize your headphones sound as if they were Surround 7.1, even though they only have 2 speakers. Such thing helps you to better perceive where the sounds are coming from and if you've to rapidly aim towards the enemy without eyesight per se, based on the direction the sound comes form you'll be able to get the target on point.
Finally, the headphones do not isolate the outer sounds as great as the Razer Electra. When you're playing music you'll barely notice, but if you lower the volume of it and compare it, you'll find it weird.
Overall: 8.7/10 I'd say.
