If you are in the market for a good headset there are only so many companies available, one of them is Razer which is well known for their high end gaming accessories. They sent us their Chimaera 5,1 headset that we are going to review today. This headset works for both a PC and on a Xbox 360 but the price tag is quite steep since even Newegg sells them for around 180$ so expectations are obviously high. Lets get on with the review!

I have to admit this product was well packed, it was packed in a box within the plastic cover that even covered the box. It all looks very professional and definitely sells well due to its looks.
