    you could buy such better stereo headset for that prices... All those THX and virtual crap are just bullcrap to rise the prices. BT audio and gaming? Bruh the latency, no thank you :\

    they all use 2.4GHz wireless for connecting to a PC. The BT is mainly for connecting to a phone, so you can answer a call whilst still playing a game.

    Or you can just pause the game or reject the call :V

    While I can understand wireless headeset, I don't understand why all this bloated crap is still around up to 250-300 bucks (even more in Europe with VAT). 250-300+ bucks you can get really good stereo headsets that smashes any "gamer" headset... Or high tier travel headsets....If you really want a virtual surround because your favorite game has a crap-audio there are many equal or better EQs around, from audio card to things like APO+ Peace EQs.
    I mean, anything "gaming" headeset above 100-150 bucks is just a waste of money :V

    Oh no bro I agree, there are far better options. I thought you missed that it also has 2.4GHz wireless.

    Razer is a perfect example of - good marketing, bad product.

    Again - these look so similar to Sony WH-1000XM 3/4

    Yet, I like their keyboards, and some mice are pretty decent too. Razer entry-level headsets are quite good too compared to the cost.

    The price of the flagship ones is steep. I haven't tested them, but I doubt they'd beat my current AKG K712 / external mic combo.
    Having a wireless setup is useful. My brother's Logitech Pro X Wireless has good features and reasonable sound quality, mic... but they break so bad and that's not a rare case. The design from the durability standpoint is abysmal. One can't defend their choices.
