Razer Banshee StarCraft II Gaming Headset
Very Good

With 11 User Reviews

Review Date: 11/18/12
Cons: see summary below

Pros: -high quality audio-very large and cushioned earphones
These headphones have superb audio quality at their sale price of $50+tax. However there are quite a few minor drawbacks that prevent me from giving this product 5 stars:-static noises: even after updating drivers and firmware to the latest edition, I still heard minor (but highly irritating) amounts of static when listening to music, especially at the mid-range frequencies. You can get rid of the static noise by adjusting the equalizer but it takes quite a bit of experimentation-size and weight: these headphones have an incredibly wide band, which actually is a plus for me as they are snug on my relatively large head, but I can imagine people with medium or smaller heads balk at putting these on. They are also quite heavy and, while not straining, you will feel the weight while wearing them. These are definitely not headphones you'll be carrying around for travel-LED lights: this feature is a hit or miss at best. I was personally apathetic about having light on my headphones since I wouldn't even see them when I'm wearing them. That said, they do make your headphones look quite badass and being able to customize the colour of each light is pretty cool. I'm a little disappointed that the LED's can't light up orange and will display pink instead.-braided cord: the quality of the cord itself is nice but it was tied up really tightly and now the length of the cord has several kinks that I can't get rid of. Doesn't affect performance in any way, but like many of the features listed above, mildly irritating.If you're in need of a new gaming headset and can get past these issues, then you should definitely consider the banshee, but only at sale price!

Cons: price 119,99$..

Pros: great look

Review Date: 04/01/12
Cons: Software isn't very goodThe mic is quite bad (a lot of static noise from it)Sound quality isn't worth the price

Pros: Great designCool LEDS
I have to admit, the aesthetics are very good for this headset but it doesn't perform well. The mic I hear from friends make a loud static noise. Also, my headset stopped working after 3 weeks and returned them and knew replacing them wouldn't help.

Cons: Textile/sponge ear muffs makes it extremely hot and unbreathable, especially in summerBass quality poor

Pros: Looks awesome, very flashyAdjustable colour scheme, very fun!
While you can do more with a USB headset, it still has many compatibility issues.Also, quality control of this particular item isn't very good, I've received a defective item and their warranty service is very limited, they require you to send in the item with your own money, a whopping $23 from the West Coast.CAUTION: This item is extremely heavy for a headset, and should be used for a very LIMITED time and LONG breaks in between, this item is VERY harmful for your nerves and tendons in your neck if used for a prolonged time! It sure screwed up my neck! Now I need to pay money to see a chiropractor!Note: I would've rated this 2 stars but since this was purchased in store, I do not have the ORDER ID to do so.

Cons: High priced

Pros: Good sound quality
Very nice design. This a nice headset, but you can get better headset at this price. Buy it if you're only a true fan of Starcraft II.

Cons: For me it isn't much of a weakness but it is big and heavy. The blue lights may become some kind of a problem if you're in a room full of people trying to watch a movie or if you like your room very dark.

Pros: Microphone quick to add or remove. Great Sound. Visually attractive.
The sound is great and I've had no problem at all since I use it. I got good comments on the microphone as people hear me well too. Even if it covers your ears fully, it doesn't block ambiant sounds unless the volume is very high of course. For some it may be bad but I like to be aware of what's going on in my appartment.

Cons: -Bulky and Heavy-A bit of static with audio (which is to be expected using anything USB with audio), sometimes I get these peculiar bursts of static from the mic in Vent (I'm pretty sure the gain from the mic just goes to 2000% or something) but I'm not sure if it's my laptop's usb slots or the actual headset.

Pros: -Decent Audio-Decent Mic-Amazing Lighting features
I was very happy with the shipping. My city was hit with a snowstorm of 40cm of snow and the parcel still came in two days from when I bought it.Packaging of the headset is incredible, you can be assured that nothing would ever get damaged. The packaging from NCIX was very durable (with airbags for added support), and the Razer packaging was so intricate it was ridiculous.It is a pretty heavy and bulky headset. This is my first gaming-esque headset (my original setup involved a pair of Sony Headphones ($100) and an Apex Condenser Mic ($100)), so I may just not be used to the feel of an actual gaming headset.To be honest I wasn't impressed with the audio or microphone. But that was because I have other gear that's built just for one purpose (like my sony headphones or apex mic). The quality is alright but it's definitely not amazing.The lighting is gorgeous. Pretty colorsss.Overall I'd say the headset is overpriced by alot considering its audio/mic quality, but hey, we all know why we're even looking at it: because it's an SC2 headset and it's got APM lighting features. And if that's all you care about then this headset is for you.
