Razer Megalodon review

 

Despite being named after a prehistoric shark, Razer's premium headset is sadly lacking bite

Decent sound quality in 2.0 mode ; Good jog dial ; Noise cancelling mic

7.1 surround sound makes sound worse ; A bit tacky feeling

Razer Megalodon Gaming Headset (Black) review

 

We recently took a look at two wired PC gaming headsets that rest in the midrange spectrum. While the P21 from Turtle Beach performed well as a PC headset, we wish it offered an option to expand to surround sound. The G330 from Logitech also performed...

Great sounding 7.1 surround sound headset; boom mic; comfortable; in-line control box; fully customizable surround sound and mic levels; Includes high-quality carrying case.

Won't work with Mac; USB only.

While it may not be ideal for the casual PC gamer, the Megalodon is an incredible sounding and comfortable PC gaming headset that lets you fully customize your sound.

Razer Megalodon Headset

 

Razer is synonymous with gaming gear. Anyone having a doubt must see the packaging of this current product, a 7.1 headset model called the Megalodon.

At Rs. 9999, this product can only be recommended for hardcore gamers with a buck or more to spend on gaming audio, which in essence is still just a part of the gaming experience. It's not so good for music as the bass is boomier than normal, but then...

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Gaming Headset Review

 

Razer Megalodon Headset Review takes a look at Razer's flagship headset with 7.1 virtual surround sound and a pretty neat volume control unit.

The Razer Megalodon is a good product, a little expensive, but that’s okay because of its outstanding performance, and the comfortable design. They have improved a good deal from their last models. The good things about the headset is that it comes...

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Gaming Headset

 

Multichannel audio experience without multiple speakers

Highly comfortable design, sturdy build, illuminated control pod for controlling volume level of individual channels, good audio quality, handy carry case provided

Control pod is too large and bulky, USB-only input limits the types of devices that can be connected, excessive audio leakage

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset Review

 

The USB powered headset doesn't quite put "sound in its place".

In conclusion, the Razer Megalodon has the looks, style, build and comfort of a proper kick ass gaming headset but it is let down by its sub-par audio performance which is a complete deal breaker. For $149 there are superior alternatives available. You...

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Gaming Headset

 

Razer are one of the pioneers within the hardware industry – their products are used by gamers all over the world and if you visit any LAN event they will grace the table of many important clan gamers. We have looked at a number of their products over...

In terms of gaming headsets Razer’s Megalodon is right up there with the best. As a 2.0 headset it provides clear and accurate sound with plenty of power when required though that is not its strongest point. Switching to 7.1 mode for games which...
