I disagree, I had the opportunity to test out 2 different sennheiser, and would not take any over my aging 5.1 baracudas. The sennheiser sound great for a music and an audiphile there is absolutely no doubt in my mind about it.

I was always having to look behind my soldier in shooters because I can't tell what is behind me. Did that silenced sniper shot come from behind me cross from my right to left, or was it more straight behind me only slight to the left of me. Its not really something I can tell with stereo even with the positional effect, but I can with the barracudas.

Better to get Beats in-ear Headphones! :D

Instead of wasting money on Razer and not only 50-80 bucks, ITS 180 BUCKS!

yeah, i got the initial batch that went up on the 29th. I'm pretty sure you'll only be able to get them from razer for the next couple months until the demand eases up as they cant seem to meet it for even their store currently

I've been waiting for these since they were first announced however they were delayed by almost 2 full quarters....and still not in retail channels yet :(

Currently using the Tritton True Analog 5.1 and they are pretty good....just curious about 7.1 :)

Where the hell are these things? By the time they become available,some company is going to come out with something similar,or even better. I really really want to try a set,but my patience is about gone. I'm glad I have the Carbons. At least you can get them.

Well, im not audiophile or sound guy, but logic tells me you can not possibly get the same sound quality with 5 smalls drivers as you can with one 40 or 50mm driver, until i see some convincing reviews, ill call a miss on this one, plus, its razer, "call it something special, and price it like its actually special".

I tend to agree here- the last set of Razer headphones I owned were utter crap, my F540's are in a different class altogether.

My wife ordered a set for me from Amazon. 1 to 3 months for delivery. Pretty much the same at all stores. On back order,and not likely to be delivered for a couple of months. I can only hope these things are worth waiting for.
