I have had the rather nice pleasure of reviewing the Razer Tiamat 2.2 recently. I must say I am pretty happy with what it provides for the price it is at however it does have a few flaws in it. There aren’t much but it might make you think about choosing a different headset so listen closely! Before we get to why the Razer Tiamat gets the score it does lets start with the fact it is a very easy to set up plug and play headset all you really need to do is stick the 2 3.5mm jacks in the computer and your set to go so this thing can go with you anywhere to any computer with no hassle of downloading any driver software to some computer that my not even be yours to be fully functional. It also includes a braided fibre cable with a Inline remote to change volume and mute your mic a small addition but a plus. Now, let’s get to the breakdown to see why the Razer Tiamat 2.2 gets this score.
Well, it got what might be my first 10 in a category and it deserves it every bit of the way. Really no matter what music I throw at this thing it plays it just perfectly the way it should. With the capability for deep bass you really can’t go wrong if you are getting this even if just for the sound. There is really nothing it can’t handle from Music to more importantly games where it really matters when you need to hear what direction things are coming from. I haven’t had one problem with the sound aspect of the headset. From high to low tones it plays just beautifully. Perfect, best headset I have ever owned for sound quality and not even the most expensive.
The Microphone, this is where things start to get a little rough. While around 80%-90% it seems the Microphone works fine it tends to either change the tone of my voice to that of a robot briefly, turn too loud or, even mute itself randomly. Though for when it works it works fine as you would expect. A nice feature is the microphone actually completely retracts into the headset itself it actually took me a few minutes to find the first time so if you do use a different microphone you will be able to just hide this one away. There is one problem… once you put the microphone in you sometimes have to fight with it to come back out and I feel as if i might break it sometimes.
The comfort of the Razer Tiamat like any headset is important, it passes most things except I could see problems for some gamers with gaming sessions of 2+ hours. After that point you will likely start feeling your ears hurting a little bit and of course getting worse as time passes however it’s not THAT bad. Otherwise the headset at least fits my head well and seems like it would fit most. The ear cups block out a lot of background sound and remain mostly comfortable for at least short gaming sessions no sweat from them either.
Overall, the Razer Tiamat has amazing sound quality and a mediocre microphone. If you don’t plan on marathon gaming sessions or are relying on the microphone too much this headset might be for you. At around $100 USD you are looking at a pretty penny for them however I would say this headset worth it and for sure recommend it especially for the sound.
