Seriously, The most honest review I could give! V-3.0
Reviewed in Canada on 24 November 2018
THESE ARE NOT GOOD SPEAKERS! In one year I went through 3 different speakers! The first one the logo was missing on one of the speakers, the second pair blew a fuse (probably) and did not turn on at all, and now my third pair has chroma issues!!! The lights will turn off and remain off until the speaker want's it too.
I will say that their support team is the best in the business, I love the Razer support... They are very helpful, kind, and understanding...
The most honest review I could give?
I WISH I NEVER BOUGHT THEM! NEVER AGAIN!
Please do not buy these speakers, they will work for a good 4 months, then you will start having problems. please make a better decision and go for these speakers instead of wasting money on this terrible product!
- "Bose Acoustimass® 5 Series V stereo speaker system"
- "Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Computer Speakers (THX Certified)"
- "Harmon and Kardon SOUNDSTICKS III"
- "Logitech Z906 5.1 Computer Speakers System (THX Certified)"
- "Klipsch R-15PM"
These are brand name items so they are higher quality (maybe not Logitech) than Razer.
As for sound quality, well, they all sound different, my first pair sounded like a wall was in front of each part of the speaker, but the bass was very good. My second pair had amazing sound quality, the best ones to date, then they no longer turned on. Sad days... My third pair the ones I have now and are in the hoping process of a return, are meh, not good, the mids are off, the highs are too high that it hurts your ears, and the bass HA this pair has the worst bass ever, I can't even shake my pipes with it... Oh well... I guess this was a project Razer must have rushed out and didn't spend enough time on...
Here is my older review based on my first speaker, as each speaker sounds different,
" Ehhhh, I am a Razer fan and I wanted the best of the best.... in all honesty these are just a show and tell piece as the sound quality is only “great” when you adjust it manually (my manual adjustment settings is below).
Furthermore, the audio enhancement features are crap, excuse my language, but for the price you would be expecting “bang and olfsen”, “bose”, “harman and karden” sound quality, but unfortunately it is not the same. I don’t know if I have a dud speaker system but there is no surround sound at all, when I turn that audio enhancement on, it sounds like there is a wall blocking the audio and it IS NOT CRISP and clean, nor, is the THX enhancement. The only way the audio sounded nice, crisp and clean, is when I customized it with my own settings (28% volume, bass boost of 41%-60% depending on song, 60hz @ +3dB, 250hz @ +6dB, 500hz @ +3 dB, 1kHz @ +4dB, 2kHz @ 0dB, 4kHz @ +3dB, 8kHz @ +7dB, 16kHz @ +4dB)
I tested the speakers with audiophile music going @ 192kb/s with my own settings above, and it sounds really nice, but for contrast I tested dollar store speakers against these and, well, the razer nommo pros won... who would’ve guessed 700$ speakers beat 20$ speakers... the only reason they won however was clarity ***when it was on my settings*** when on the THX audio enhancement for example, they were pretty similar to dollar store speakers lmao.... video attached in THX mode you can compare the audio in the videos
They do have a nice shape however, and the aesthetics are very VERY nice. I do really love the cylinder design. But for $700 I would also expect a smoother control pod it is a bit rough... also since there is no cage blocking the speakers dust and dirt gets on the speaker and it is very tough to clean.
Here is one question I had for aesthetics, does it light up to the beat of the music?
A: Yes, but, you need to download a separate chroma application visualizer on your computer for your lights to move to the beat (sorta)...
BTW the other speaker was the ArtDio UC-280 with 3” full range 4 Ohm Driver, 1.2watts*2....
However, I won’t lie the reason the sound quality is 4 stars is because of the bass, the bass is truly remarkable, better than “bose” in this sense. And the tweeters are also really spot on with those hit tats and high frequencies, the highest frequency I tested that I can hear was 17’235 Hz, so not bad at all. Humans can only hear about 20,000 Hz. "
I hoped this helped...
One last thing I wanted to say is Razer owns THX soooooooooo... they could just slap the THX logo on and voila.
(Sorry if some of the grammar is off)
