Razer Man O War Review – Conclusion

Starting with the build quality of the Man O’ War we have a headset which looks pretty good. The mix of materials/finishes looks great but that said, we do feel that it is a bit plasticky. The odd bit of metal here and there, e.g. visible on the extendable sections of the headband, would go a long way to enhancing the quality. There are some nice touches, though, like each of the screws being covered which show that a decent amount of thought has gone into the headset.

On the design front, we like the fact we can store the wireless transmitter in the earcup, that there are easily accessible controls on the earcups and that the mic can be hidden away when not in use. The mute LED is also a feature which we appreciate.

As far as the software goes. As we’ve said before, we very much like Razer Synapse. Having all of our devices controlled from one panel is ideal and the software is responsive as well as intuitive. All very good so far. So what about the performance?

In our testing, we identified two issues. Firstly we found the power saving to be a little aggressive. If your audio finishes and no further sound is transmitted within a couple of minutes the headset powers off. If you are listening to music and your album, queue or playlist ends while you are distracted by another task, more often than not you’ll need to turn the headset back on as it will have powered down. Fortunately, this is a minor issue due to the headset connecting within a second of being turned on, no pairing needed, you turn on, it’s ready to go. Our second issue causes more of an impact and that is a volume level which is quite limited out of the box. The headset is just about loud enough in most cases but any sort of source (often YT videos) which were not created with a loud volume level can end up being too quiet on the Man O’ War. Ticking the Sound Normalization box and setting to 100 makes a bit of a difference but there were a number of occasions, too many really, where we had the headset/system volume at 100% and it still wasn’t loud enough. (This can be resolved with software plugins, or in some apps like VLC where there is an option to go past 100% volume but really, a basic function of a headset should be that it is overly loud and our choice on where we top out.)

Other than that those issues, though, everything else is spot on. From a quality point of view, the Man O’ War sounds fantastic. Plenty of detail, bass when needed and good virtual positional audio. It was also great to experience some decent music playback from a gaming headset. All too often gaming headsets offer a decent movie playback experience, on top of games, but lack quality in music. That isn’t the case here, all three tasks were produced to a high quality, regardless of the genre being played. Mic quality too was good, minimal background noise was heard by our teammates and feedback from those we gamed with was that our voice was crystal clear. Finally, battery life, again all very positive. Razer quote 14hrs with lighting, 20 with none. Our headset hit these figures which is great.

Summary: Decent looks, top notch software, good wireless range, and some excellent audio quality.
