Razer Carcharias review
Sand Shark

The good:

This headset is so damn comfortable you'll forget you're wearing them. It provides excellent audio from the mic and deep bass from the earphones. It's quite stylish and very adjustable as well.

The bad:

This headset is $80. You could buy 8 gigs of RAM for that. Also the headset is a bit more flimsy than you would expect for the price, with the earphones being attached by only two thin pieces of metal on each earphone. They also do not light up, but I guess you can't get everything you want.

Summary:

As I reflect on it, I've owned a lot of headsets. From Bose to Sennheiser, $5 to $50, I've used them all. The one thing those over-the-ear headsets had in common was: now they are broken or nonfunctional. On occasion it was totally my fault by dropping them or running them over with my chair, but for the most part they simply ceased to function in one way or another, one earphone becomes static-y and irritating or the mic doesn't work properly. That showed me how far your money goes in the headphone industry. One day I was tired of buying new headphones, so I went out to the internet and decided to spend some real money on a quality headset. When I saw that Razer produced headsets I was a bit wary because of my last experience with them (read my Lycosa review) but I went with them anyway, even if just to match my other peripherals, and I put insurance on them just in case.

At first glance they seem quite spartan, but getting a side view of the earphones with their polished black mesh will tell you that they really are a Razer product and designed to be quite pleasing to the eye. They are simplest the most comfortable thing I have ever placed upon my head, with velvet cushions for the ear covers, I often forget I have them on which leads me to my next point. The cable for this thing is cloth coated, similarly to the Naga's, and 10 feet long. 10 feet. This is incredibly long, at least for my taste since my head sits less than 2 feet from my tower's audio and microphone ports. They are reasonably durable, lasting twice as long (a year) as any of my previous headsets, even though they seem a bit flimsy. If you want a great, comfortable over the ear mic or headset at a reasonable price, these are for you.
