Multichannel audio experience without multiple speakers
Highly comfortable design, sturdy build, illuminated control pod for controlling volume level of individual channels, good audio quality, handy carry case provided
Control pod is too large and bulky, USB-only input limits the types of devices that can be connected, excessive audio leakage

Gamers will understand when I say this: The audio that you hear in games is just as important as the video you see. In fact, at times, it is even more important. Sometimes you can hear an enemy approaching even before you can see him and so it is imperative that you have a good audio system to complete your experience, and give you that edge in gaming.
Multichannel audio systems work great in this aspect, as they correctly position sounds, giving you greater accuracy. But what if you want the same experience while you are away from your desktop computer or what if you don't have the kind of space required to sett up a multichannel audio system? This is where the Razer Megalodon comes in. Named after a large and powerful species of sharks (now extinct), they are not your usual pair of gaming headphones but ones that support multichannel audio, that too up to 7.1 channels. We put them on to see how much of an improvement it had on our gaming experience.
Razer Logo Stickers
The case is pretty massive, considering the size of the headphones themselves, but handy for carrying them around. Unfortunately, for something this big, the case does not have a handle to carry it like a bag. Of course you also get the Razer logo stickers, which are pretty cool as well.
