Razer Tiamat 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
That’s what Razer states it is making available to audio-crazed gamers with its Tiamat 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset ($179.99) set to ship later this year. Specifically, Razer says the Tiamat 7.1 is the planet’s “first circumaural gaming headset with 10 individual drivers built in to deliver the ultimate 7.1 surround sound experience.” In addition to two 40mm subwoofer drivers, the intimidatingly black and green Tiamat integrates two 30mm front, two 30mm center, two 20mm side, and two 20mm rear drivers in the earcups.
The Tiamat also integrates a noise-filtering unidirectional mic and provides a control unit for switching between microphone and audio functions and tweaking individual audio channels, positions, and bass depth. For those with less demanding audiogaming ears, Razer is also releasing a 2.2 Tiamat version ($99.99) that simulates 3D audio.
