RAZER Piranha Gaming Communicator


RAZER PiranhaSo how well did the RAZER Gaming Communicator perform in today's performance review?
The RAZER Piranha Gaming Communicator was a bit of a mixed bag if I'm to be honest. The build quality is typical RAZER - hard wearing and functional with good attention to detail. I really liked the inclusion of the volume control and microphone mute switch on the cord, which made it really easy to reach and adjust.
The boom microphone is excellent and if you need a headset for communication and recording purposes then it will fit the bill nicely. However, if you're looking for a dedicated  set of gaming headphones that provide very good sound quality and comfort, then you may want to look elsewhere. That being said, for the price, the RAZER Piranha Gaming Communicator is excellent value and should be considered above that of budget orientated headsets.
Pricing for the RAZER Piranha Gaming Communicator is US$79.99 according to RAZER' website, but the cheapest I could find them in the UK is £41.11 inc VAT from OcUK, but we'd recommend paying £46.99 Inc VAT from Scan.
For our Australian readers, Altech Computers have the RAZER Piranha available for AUD$87.00 (inc GST)

Nice review mate.

Was recently looking at which headset to buy. Was thinking of something from Razer but decided on some Sennheiser PC-161s. Haven't had a proper chance to play with them yet.Quote

Thanks for the feedback mate. The RAZER Piranha is certainly better than the budget options out there, but they just didn't dazzle me.Quote
