The side of the ear-pieces have a very nice touch, with the cover being transparent. You really get a sense of the quality of the speakers, and how much thought has been put into the design. It's very cool.

If you prefer the more usual cover, the Tiamat comes with blank black covers which attach via magnets to the side, covering up the speakers. We can't see why you'd choose this option, but it's nice to have.

The heavily padded leather cups pull off with plastic studs, and you can see the complicated arrangement of speaker grills.

The volume control and mixer is another clever piece of design. At the top is a rotating selector to choose which element you wish to control the volume of. The big dial has a lovely smooth action, and if you click it down it mutes the volume. At the bottom are the buttons which mute the microphone and switch between stereo and 7.1 surround.

As well as the lights on the volume mixer there are Razer logos that light up at the base of each ear-piece.
