Razer has built a solid reputation for itself over the last few years as a purveyor of high-end gaming gadgets. Opening the box to the new Tiamat headphones suggests that they've got another hit on their hands; we can't remember ever being so impressed by a product's packaging, and that includes Apple's fancy boxes. This is one sexy package, with a thick cardboard box that opens into various sections, sealed by a magnetic flap.
The headphones themselves are almost as impressive, with slick, transparent panels showing off the five drivers crammed into each cup. The headband uses a similar set-up as the Audio Technica products, but uses a floating band instead of paddles. There's no way to adjust the length, but the band stretches to ensure a solid fit. Once again, circumaural ear cups have been used, and they're relatively small, ensuring a snug fit. The vinyl cushioning is nice and soft to the touch, but can get a little moist. The left cup hides a retractable microphone, while the lengthy cable is home to the amplification unit. This can be used to adjust the overall volume, as well as each individual channel — front, back, side, centre and subwoofer. It's all rather impressive.
