          Razer ManO'War Wireless Gaming Headset

          Razer ManO’War Wireless Gaming Headset

          The user-friendly Razer ManO’War Wireless Gaming Headset is super easy to setup with the blue-tooth dongle already embedded into the headset itself (preventing the careless gamer from losing a piece). The buttons and controls for volume (for both the headphones and mic) and mute functionality are located on each ear and easy to find while the mic can retract for when you want to jump in or out of chat. And although it looks a little chunky, it’s actually pretty lightweight and the soft leatherette ear cups remain comfortable even after an extended period of use. Also, for a wireless headset, it has a surprisingly great audio quality with 7.1 surround sound.
