General Thoughts:

The Razer ManO’War was one of my favourite headsets… because of the big sound and amazing microphone (best on any headset I’ve tried). The problem was it broke in 6 weeks. Apparently they’ve updated the design but I still don’t trust it. The good news is that the Razer Thresher is basically the ManO’War but with much better build quality. If they had added software support or a way to add Razer Synapse functionality within the transmitter somehow, then this would be close to perfect as an entertainment headset. Really enjoyed playing PS4 games in surround mode… it’s another level of immersion.

A lot of people have opinions on headphones and usually say not to get gaming headsets. I understand that. I’m sure wired headphones are going to give better sound for a lower price, but once you experience a wireless set, it’s hard to go back to having wires attached to your head. The freedom is amazing. I only use wireless sets for entertainment now. The only time I use wired is when I’m doing something serious like music production or recording vocals. And that’s the point here… you have to find what’s right for you. This is all personal preference, and the Thresher is my kind of headset. Love it.

I would like to see them be made smaller too… they’re a bit big right now. Kind of worth it for the 50mm drivers though!
