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.

My experience with the Megalodon is a pleasant one and I would recommend to all who want the upper hand in gaming. I got this beautiful headset after about 5 days using 5-8 day shipping so Im extremely happy with that. Now let me get started on my actual review.

- Sound Quality - Upon first listen it just sounded extremely hollow in 7.1 on things that actually were 7.1 but in 2.1 things sounded not as loud as they should have been. Now this may seem to you a giant problem at first but after I had updated the driver from Razer's website and listening to music (Preferably Skrillex =D) for about 3 hours seeing if they needed to be "burned" in a little bit I came to a conclusion that it was either a case of getting used to the headset or if the headset actually needed to be burned in a little bit with some straining stuff on the headset. You can be the judge, because all I know is this headset is amazing. Listening to music is the first thing I did when I got the headset and after that short period of confusion I was listening to music like never before.

- Bass - Now for all of you bass lovers like me out there at first you are going to step back and think well...This doesnt really give that giant thump others do...I can explain why after I figured it out myself. I had started up a couple of games like Crysis, CoD4, And Half Life and I soon realized that the reason that the bass doesnt shake the headsets off your head is to preserve sound quality and sense of direction. When a grenade explodes next to you and theres a guy creeping up on you, I think you would prefer hearing him and getting a nice turn-on instead of just having the bass tickle your ears. But as for my final take on it, I LOVE bass...
