This is a nice Xbox headset, one of the better ones I’ve tested to date. Certainly better than the Steelseries one I reviewed recently. It could do with some volume boosting power, but perhaps a lack of max volume is something that comes with the wireless territory; either that or Razer have a concience when it comes to their user’s ears. I would also like to see the PC cable included with the pack, but that’s because I’m a PC gamer.

All in all, the Chimaera produces a great sound in many different environments, and while for a 2.0 system you might begrudge the £80, have a listen to these and you’ll be surprised.
