I bought pre-ordered this headset from Razer's website a few days before they were released. I eagerly popped the awesome packaging open (watch Razer's unboxing video on YouTube if you haven't already) and threw them on.

The Megalodon's are by far the most comfortable computer headphones I've worn. The headband padding is cushy and keeps the headset from feeling too heavy on your noggin. The earcups, which go around your ears, are very soft and padded well. If anyone owned the Barracudas, some people (myself included) had issues where their ears would actually rest directly on the speakers and get sore after a while. Not with these babies! The padding is excellent and the earcups are very deep.

The mic is permanently attached and can rotate 270 degrees. The control pod is easy to use and let's you adjust the volume of each individual speaker channel and the bass separately. You can also of course switch between 2.1 and 7.1 modes with the press of a button.

The only issue though is to check and make sure that your movies and games can output 7.1 surround sound. If not, some sounds will be a little distorted and muffled. In these cases you are supposed to use 2.1 mode. Check your compatibility to see if what you watch/play is compatible now, but also keep in mind that future games and blu-ray releases should support 7.1.

One example of a standout game was Fallout 3. AMAZING. I could hear the wind blowing, characters talking, and could pinpoint exactly where bullets were being fired from. It truly rivaled my own conventional 5.1 setup. I'm going to have a hard time going back to stereo headsets!

Short Version

They are worth they money, they are very comfy to wear, the sound quality and bass are great and the Microphone works properly. People don't take the time read manuals and troubleshoot when they go wrong and assume its the products fault. PC parts do not always jive well with each other without a little fussing. If you wanted simple and easy go buy a console.

Long Version

Ok I hope people see this review before they read all the posts about how bad these headphones are and how they are not worth the money. Because they are wroth the money.

First off to everyone who complains about the microphone quality. You need to realize that this headset has a built in sound card via the USB cord. There are controls and settings on the panel you need to set up. You need to both fiddle with your control panel microphone settings on your PC and the headphone controls on the actually control panel via the cord. There are both microphone output settings and noise cancellation levels for the microphone on the device itself. So when you're trying to set up these headphones you need to make sure you test and tweak theses settings. By default they are up to high and you also must make sure your using a high quality encoding with whatever voice chat system your using. Some built in game voice chat uses really low quality codec's so no matter how good your microphone is its going to sound like crap. This is not the fault of the headset. This is also the case with Ventrilo, the few posts I saw regarding that. If you sound like crap check the sound settings next time. I have done very extensive testing and everyone says I sound better than ever now on my voice servers.

Second to those who are reporting actual sound issues.

I have read many reviews on many headsets and I have come to some conclusions that I think will help you when you are looking to buy a new headset for gaming. First of all if you have ever used a sound card and a headset that utilizes the soundcard you may be disappointed with this headset. Although USB is convenient in terms of plug-n-play you are going to loose a lot of customization by not having any sort of equalizer, once the Megalodon is detected your interface in the operating system is effectively disabled. You still have control over volume, and volume for specific "channels" like front speakers, center, etc. But that is it, further more you will need to check with the game you are playing if it works with 7.1 and if it doesn't then you have to go back to 2.1, there is no up mixing here.

So if you have been gaming with a sound card and with a headset that has real 5.1 sound then you are going to be disappointed. For example BF3 sounds like you are in an echo chamber, I tried changing the settings in game many times, I tried changing the speaker levels to no evail. The only time it sounded OK was when I went to 2.1. Now if you are like me you will wonder "Why am I paying for 7.1 and only getting 2.1 out of it?" Check the games you play and see how much of them will actually utilize this headset, chances are not many.

If you have the money to pay for this headset I would recommend getting something else, like a decent sound card a set of headphones that have real drivers instead of this virtualization stuff.

If you have only been using stereo headphones, and no sound card you will like these headphones but in my opinion you will be wasting your money.
