Razer Announces The Tiamat 7.1 V2 - The Flagship True Surround Sound Headset For Perfect Positional Gaming Audio

IRVINE, Calif. – PRNewswire/ — Razer, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced two new headsets: Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 and Razer Tiamat 2.2 V2.

Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2
The Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 is an analog, true 7.1 surround sound PC gaming headset featuring 10 discrete drivers, five per ear cup, creating an immersive soundstage, essential for pinpoint positional audio and deep gaming immersion. Each ear cup contains a 40 mm subwoofer, 30 mm front (L/R) and center drivers and 20 mm rear and side surround drivers, working together to create highly accurate directional audio.

Included with the Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 is a completely new Audio Control Unit, which allows gamers to set the volume of each audio channel as well as toggle between true 7.1 surround sound and 2.0 stereo audio. The Audio Control Unit also has a pass-through feature, allowing gamers with external desktop speaker setups to switch between their Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 and their speakers at the press of a button.

For in-game communication, the Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 is equipped with a unidirectional digital boom microphone which rotates alongside the ear cup when not in use and delivers crisp, natural voice in the heat of battle.

“Today’s games use positional audio extensively, so being able to hear which direction footsteps or shots are coming from is crucial to winning,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “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.”

The Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 joins the ever-growing family of Powered by Razer Chroma™ devices, with 16.8 million color options and effects available on the ear cups and Audio Control Unit. Owners of other Razer Chroma enabled devices can sync their Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 with their existing setup or customize each product individually through Razer Synapse.
