Razer Chimaera Xbox 360 Headset Gets Bumped To 5.1-Channel Surround, PS3 Users No Dice

Razer’s Chimaera wireless gaming headset for the Xbox 360 and PC is one bad ass looking piece of headphone kit. But one thing it lacked was a full surround sound experience. Fear not audiophiles, they just announced a 5.1-channel version of the ultra sleek and wireless headset.

Much like the stereo version it sports 50mm drivers for some serious, or so we hope, bass thumping sound and the ability to create a private chat when you’re in proxmity of 1-3 other Chimaera headset users. One caveat to the full surround is a reduced battery life of 8 hours, which is 4 hours less than the stereo version.

It doesn't matter. We're holding out for 7.1 Surround that the PS3 delivers.

NO PS3 dude. Right there in the head line.

Too expensive for my taste. I will stay with my cheapo, freebie headset from M$. If the stereo version were $70, I would be all over it. Look nice though.
