Here’s a video review of the Razer Chimaera 5.1 wireless gaming headset. Although it can be used with any console or PC, it only allows for chat on Xbox 360. It’s another ¬†high-quality product from Razer, a company that’s known some of the best mice and keyboards for gamers.

Here’s the Cliff Notes¬†version:

Like

  • Super Comfortable — I wore the Chimaera for several gaming sessions of two hours or more and found it perfectly comfortable the whole time.
  • Great Sound — Although it’s not as impressive as headsets with multiple drivers, I really enjoyed the sound output. At the very least, it blows away TV speakers in terms of clarity and detail.

Didn’t Like

  • Microphone — The mic isn’t noise-cancelling, which could be a deal breaker for gamers that play in crowded living rooms, doorms, etc.
  • Possible Interference — I’m positive that interference won’t be an issue for most people, but if you live in a crowded apartment complex (like me) with lots of 5.8GHz devices fighting for signal then you’ll probably experience occasional dropouts. At home, I experienced a few dropouts but when I brought the Chimaera to my friend’s house in the suburbs I didn’t have any.

Kindly watch the review when you have a chance and let me know what you think! Is the Razer Chimaera 5.1 something you want this holiday season?

  1. I have the logitech G90 wireless and it ALWAYS cuts out!!

    You can only do VoIP with a 360??

      1. It's 2.4I missed a digit, it's G930I really wish I would have bought the wired G35 instead. Same thing, no dropping out.Sent from my iPhone 4

      2. No cordless phone in the house, cells only. I'm pretty sure my neighbors are my culprits!Router is not 2.4Sent from my iPhone 4

  2. It is a suburban area. I'm surprised as well. It could easily be a bad USB dongle. Idk.Sent from my iPhone 4

      1. That's one kicker about married life that I have yet to make logic out of.

        When I AM right every so often… she gets mad at me and that makes the problem worse.

        Even worse, she and her mom gets mad at me when I research things. And then hit me with "You always have to be right, don't you?" and then I say "That's impossible and I've come to terms with that, but I would be lying if I said I didn't try."

        Then the fireworks REALLY start flying.
