Razer has launched two new gaming headsets, the Tiamat 7.1 V2 and the Tiamat 2.2 V2. The former is a true 7.1 surround sound audio gear, while the latter is a versatile cross-platform ear accessory. Both products are now available to purchase worldwide.

The Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 boasts of a total of ten discrete drivers, five per ear cup. The analogue gaming headset is a true 7.1 surround sound hardware that promises enhanced positional audio detection and, of course, immersive PC gameplay. The precise directional audio is collectively provided by each cup’s 40 mm subwoofer, 30 mm front and centre drivers, and 20 mm rear and side surround drivers.

The new gaming headset comes with Razer’s all-new Audio Control Unit. It permits volume setting to each audio channel and allows users to switch between 2.0 stereo audio and true 7.1 surround sound. It likewise allows easy toggling between external stereo speakers and the headset with just a single press of a button thanks to its pass-through feature.

A unidirectional digital boom mic is also included, and it can be easily rotated alongside the ear cup when it’s not needed. And of course, a gaming gear won’t be complete without RGB lighting. The new headset is powered by Razer Chroma and boasts of 16.8 million colour options and effects on each ear cup as well as the Audio Control Unit.

“Today’s games use positional audio extensively, so being able to hear which direction footsteps or shots are coming from is crucial to winning,” according to Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “With five drivers per ear-cup, the Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 gives gamers pinpoint audio accuracy whether they’re playing intense FPS matches or just want to lose themselves in massive soundscapes to bring their games to life.”

Meanwhile, the Razer Tiamat 2.2 V2 exclusively packs two extra 50 mm subwoofer drivers in each ear cup for enhanced bass and crisp sounds. It also has an adjustable digital boom mic for natural audio output.

An in-line remote with an extension/splitter cable is likewise included, making the headset compatible with several devices whether it’s used on a PC, a console or a smartphone. Unlike its well-lit counterpart, however, the 2.2 V2 isn’t backed by Chroma.

The Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 is now available in North America for US$199.99, in Australia for AU$349.95 and in Europe for €239.99. The Razer Tiamat 2.2 V2, on the other hand, is available for US$129.99 in North America, AU$219.95 in Australia and €139.99 in Europe.
