If you've got a decent sound card and want the best gaming headset to plug into it, the Carcharias is our firm favourite. The Crarcharias doesn't have a booming bassline, but deals with low-level bass sounds in a more sophisticated way which isn't lacking in punch. quote

Sound is great, the headset is comfortable, and it’s even cool-looking. If you’re in the market, or have been rocking the Piranhas then I definitely suggest picking a pair of these up.

The Carcharias is by far the most comfortable, best-sounding PC gaming headset we've tested in a while.

Despite the silly name, the Razer Carcharias deliver a solid gaming experience, and they're a decent all-purpose headset for most uses — as long as you like audio that's heavy on the bass and light elsewhere.

Razer bring the noise with these stylish and superbly performing headphones. It's a pity about the price, though.

At the end of the day, if you were to consider the Razer Carcharias strictly in terms of performance and construction, you would find that they are a solid pair of headphones. Unfortunately many consumers have to consider cost and features above performance and construction.

Designed primarily as a gaming product the Carcharias offers an excellent experience in this task however the headset also excels in music and movie playback. A well-built, well designed and well balanced product.

Based on the product alone, Carcharias delivers more than most other headsets. In my opinion, I could justify the extra cost of the headset for the ability to wear it for 8 or more hours without getting a headache.

Fantastic headset. Very durable. Originally, I used this headset with my gaming machine. Since then, it has moved to work and used daily for listening to music. Highly recommended.

I originally put this review up in October of 2011 giving it an overall 8/10. Since then, I have upgraded my sound card and found that change has eliminated most of the technical issues I've had with this headset. I thought it best to go back and revise my review to reflect this.

As a gamer with sub-optimal sight (read, glasses) I am quite critical of how comfortable my headsets and headphones are when worn for extended periods of time. The Razer Carcharias is hands-down the most comfortable headset I have used. As long as you are ok with a stereo headset, I highly...
