Razer Megalodon headset

Peripheral maker Razer has announced a new headset, the Megalodon. Intended for gaming, the unit has a microphone for voice chats and commands, with sensitivity adjustable through a desk-based control module. The headset's focus however is on simulating 7.1-channel surround sound, a task handled through a decoder which Razer claims is eight times faster than similar chipsets. As necessary, the control module also lets users toggle back to 2.0-channel sound, and tweak settings for bass, volume and positioning.

The headphones produce 200mW of power, and have a frequency response range between 20Hz and 20KHz. To make the headset more comfortable, both the headband and earphones are cushioned. Razer plans to ship the Megalodon sometime in the fourth quarter of the year.

    was s***, would fall apart literally from reports. Hope this one is built to support the price tag, because it's going to be high.
