I’m not sure how much you value personal listening experience whenever you put on your gaming hat but if you want the total immersion to your game then your ears also play an integral part. Razer plans to bring you closer to your game with the release of the world’s first 7.1 surround sound gaming headset, the Razer Tiamat 7.1.
The Razer Tiamat 7.1 packs a total of 10 discrete drivers, 5 in each circumaural ear cup to give you true pinpoint positional surround sound. You can hear everything around you with three-dimensional clarity. The 10 drivers represent the 7 surround sound channels plus subwoofer; 2 for center, 1 each for the left and right, surround sound left and right, surround back left and right, and 2 for the subwoofer. All drivers work in unison to produce a true surround sound experience.
There’s a versatile control unit which allows you to tweak every audio channel’s volume and positioning, as well as bass depth to your exact preference. With a single button press, toggle between the headset’s 7.1 surround sound, 2.0 stereo and external speakers when both are connected to the unit to have the right audio setup for your specific entertainment needs at all times.
This headset comes with comfy leatherette ear cushions and a precise, unidirectional noise-cancelling microphone so your battle chatter stays as sharp as your audio.
This beast is set to arrive in the 4th quarter of 2011 with a price tag of US$179.99 or roughly around Php7.8k here. If you’re in a pinch, the Tiamat 7.1 has a smaller brother, the Tiamat 2.2 for only US$99.99.
