Headset

The Chimaera is a pretty professional looking set of headphones. It’s got a nice solid feel to it and a matt black paint scheme that offsets the chunky ear phones quite nicely. The interior of the cups are padded with a soft foam instead of the oft seen faux or real leather.

Each earphone features a glossy black outline image of the Razer logo as well as some LED indicators/buttons. The ones on this side control power and microphone muting functions.

Each headphone cup also has volume controls of some kind on them. The one with the mic attached controls the input volume whereas the one on the opposite side handles headphone output levels.

The headband is covered in this lovely soft foam padding and has a metallic core to keep it strong while providing basic levels of flexibility. No rigid headsets round here, no sir.

The mic, like many headsets being put out at the moment, is made from a solid, slightly maleable plastic that sits at a fixed distance from your mouth.
