Razer Piranha Gaming Communicator ReviewPropane - January 13, 2008

When I first received the Razer Piranha Gaming Communicator, I had high expectations; after all, it is a Razer product. These high expectations were worth having too, as the Piranha met every one of them. The sound quality blew me away, leaving me and my FLAC collection in a fun place of musical enjoyment. The drivers were able to withstand high volumes and only distorted when I pushed the headset to the extreme (eg. Chemical Brothers - Under The Influence at a really high volume). This didn't matter much since, at that point, I was wanting to turn down the volume, as I was worried about hearing damage. The comfort is unsurpassed by any other headset or headphones that I have ever owned or tested, and the noise isolation of them is superb for the price. I love music and consider myself an audiophile, and I could really pick up the finer details in the music with this headset. The only thing I wished was different, was that instead of using the USB connection to only power the lights, it would act as a USB headset as well. However, that is a small price to pay for a headset that is this nice. Overall, I really enjoyed the Razer Piranha Gaming Communicator and will continue to use them for everything from staff meetings to casual music listening.
