Engadget Summary

Razer's Tiamat 7.1 headset delivers the best surround sound experience available in any gaming headset. But you may need to upgrade your PC's sound card to take full advantage of them, which could make these $179 headphones an even pricier proposition. Once you've made that commitment, however, be prepared for a fully immersive experience for both gaming and watching movies on your computer. You may never take these off.
