The Razer Tiamat 7.1 Surround Headset

Razer Tiamat 7.1 Headset - Full view Razer Tiamat 7.1 Headset - Head band
A 2.2 version of the Tiamat is available but ours was the higher specification circumaural 7.1 headset, and that is true 7.1 rather than virtual as with other gaming gear. The Tiamat features tilting cups which angle themselves to fit each users head and rather than extending arms we have an expanding, padded suspension band which allows the headset to rest comfortably up top. The green thread on the leatherette finsh gives us that unique Razer look.

Each of the ear cups arrives with transparent covers attached and through them we can see that each has five drivers. On each ear for the Sub we have 40mm neodymium Magnets with Titanium Coated Diaphragm giving frequency response of 20Hz-20,000Hz on impedance of 16ohm. Sensitivity at 1KHz is 116dB, a little different to the front channels 123dB on 32ohm and 30mm Neodymium. For the rear drivers Razer use 20mm Neodymium models again and they are also 32ohm but change the dB rating to 120 this time. Centre drivers are 30mm, 32ohm, 20-20,000Hz with 123dB and rounding things off are the sides at 20mm, 32Ohm and 120dB. Also worth noting is the front and centre channels CCAW Voice Coil.

Round at the other side of the ear cups we find replaceable leartherette pads which contain memory foam for a comfortable fit.

Razer Tiamat 7.1 Headset - Mic

The Razer Tiamat microphone extends from the left cup and can be completely inserted so that it is hidden when not in use. The top section is a fixed, variable angle arm with the bottom half rubber coated and flexible.

In terms of specifications we have a frequency response of 50-16000Hz with sensitivity of -36dB at 1kHz. Signal to noise ratio is 50dB and we have a unidirectional pick-up pattern with noise filtering.

Razer Tiamat 7.1 Headset - Connectors

A braided cable extends from the left cup of the Tiamat and around half way down is the control unit. This unit is a mixture of metal and plastic with a rubber base to ensure it stays still on our desk. At the top of the pod we find a selection dial which allows us to move between master, mic, front, centre, sub, side and rear volume. The centre dial rotates to vary the selected aspect and pressing in mutes the headset. Beneath the dial we have three buttons the first mutes the mic, a second turns 7.1 mode on/off and the third outputs sound via a micro-USB port on the top, through a bundled expansion cable to a speaker system.

Also shown above is that the Tiamat cable ends in five 3.5mm, colour coded plugs with a sixth connector (USB) for power.
