    Technically all speaker drivers vibrate but these are different. The Razer Nari Ultimate headphones use technology from Lofelt (the company that brought you Basslet) to TRY and take haptic gaming tech to the next level…

          These are very bad for you and WILL significantly damage your hearing over a period of time with extended usage. I’m legitimately surprised this kind of liability in a product was ever produced by Razer.

                  So I own them and they have a lot of audio presets still enabled on the mic, the presets are supposed to help prevent the bass backfeeding into the mic.

                  With the haptics lowered and the audio presets set to vanilla, (no clarity modifiers) it sounds like a normal mic

                            That mic is fuckin horrible LOL, even my Hyper X alpha headset mic sounds better and it's almost $150 less. I use a Hyper X Quadcast doe so im way out of the league for this one.

                                I find it funny how Razer (and even reviews like this) is acting like this is a new thing with headsets.

                                The Sony Pulse Edition headset did this already. They were a lot better with the mic as well but the build quality was terrible. Shame Sony never used the tech again in any of their future headsets after that. All they needed to do was upgrade the build quality, perfect the mic even better, and maybe make it bluetooth.

                                            This headset was too many steps to count back from the Man O War. The whole design is atrocious and the quality is just absolute boo boo.

                                                Razer also has a mediocre sound system with RGB and braided cables, that costs 500 dollars. Figure it...

                                                            This is was done first by Sades..and perhaps someone else did it before Sades.

                                                              In fact, if this is the "bass" being produced by motors vibrating away in the headphones, I see headphones as old as 2006 on amazon called "ProHT Bass Vibration Headset (87075)"

                                                              Not sure where else to look to see who thought of this idea first haha.

It’s not wireless but the “rumble” that it produces when low tones will literally vibrate the set across the table. All it takes is a singlet AA battery and It even has a slider on the set itself to adjust the “rumble”. I’ll take my 80$ pair of Skull candies than those.

The headsets are seriously the worst you could possibly get for the price. I mean, that mic is simply inexcusable. Although it's not just a Razer thing for some reason with most gaming headsets... I'll just stick to my studio headphones and mic with a preamp for now... It's hard to beat I guess. At least I can still run it through Synapse. Although I don't really have a use for it other than widening the stereo field. Yet I don't even know if it does anything other than a filter you possibly have no use for. I'm not really familiar with the technology.
