RAZER preview the Megalodon 7.1 Gaming Headset RAZER Magalodon
 
Razer, one of the leaders in the manufacture of high-end precision gaming peripherals, has previewed their Megalodon 7.1 surround sound gaming headset. The Magalodon headset is powered by RAZER' Maelstrom Audio Engine, which has the ability to process audio algorithms up to 800% faster than traditional HRTF virtual surround sound technologies.
 
The Razer Megalodon is thus able to offer a convincing and realistic positional sound stage. Gamers looking for an in-game advantage will be able to listen to the positional cues emitted by the Razer Megalodon and hear incoming threats before the threat can actually be seen onscreen. Coupled with an amplified microphone with adjustable sensitivity and leveling, the Razer Megalodon is a complete audio communications package.

The Razer Megalodon encompasses a circum-aural headset with replaceable ear-pad cushions, a cushioned headband and an adjustable boom mic. The control pod is connected to the headset via a braided cable and comes in a glossy piano black finish with a rotating dial adjustment for volume, mic, bass and positional sound. Meant as desk controller, the control pod allows gamers to switch effortlessly between 2.0 stereo and 7.1 surround sound, even controlling which speakers gamers prefer to use in the 7.1 environment.

Is the water link between the two cards just a short piece of clear pipe?
