Razer announced the Tiamat 7.1, the world’s first true 7.1-channel surround sound gaming headset. The unit sports a total of 10 discrete drivers, 5 in each circumaural ear cup to give you true pinpoint positional surround sound. The 10 drivers represent the 7 surround sound channels plus subwoofer; 2 for center, 1 each for the left and right, surround sound left and right, surround back left and right, and 2 for the subwoofer.
The Razer Tiamat 7.1 comes with a sleek control unit for users to customize their audio experience, such as fine tuning the volume of every audio channel, position, and bass depth, as well as conveniently toggling between the headset’s 7.1 surround sound mode, 2.0 stereo mode or external speakers.
Razer will also release the Tiamat 2.2 stereo headset with 4 discrete drivers, 2 dedicated especially to bass.
