First Look: Razer Carcharias PC Headset

1:19 /

The Razer Carcharias is by far the most comfortable, best-sounding PC gaming headset we've tested in a while.

>> Hey what's going on everyone, I'm Jeff Bakalar for CNET.com. Today we're checking out the Razer Carcharias PC gaming headset. Now the Carcharias gaming headset is primarily designed to be used with games that take advantage of voice chat. Now we also actually found that it made for a pretty good set of headphones as well. We tested the headset with various PC games like Counter Strike and found out that our teammates were able to hear us loud and clearly. Also the headset does a really good job of stereo separation so we're able to tell where the other enemies and players where their footsteps and gun fire was coming from while in the game. Now the Razor also performed really well in our VOYP sessions our participating party reported a loud and clear signal they were able to hear us really well. Now while we wish the boom mic on the headset was a little bit more adjustable it didn't really seem to interfere with this performance also the mic can completely swivel out of vision out of the way which is another reason we really recommend it for use in other non-chatting scenarios. Overall we found the Razer Carcharias to be one of the most comfortable best sounding PC gaming headsets we tested in a really long time. I'm Jeff Bakalar and this has been the Razer Carcharias. ^E00:01:19
