Razer Electra for gaming and music

Hey guys. I lost my apple headphones some weeks ago and I thought this would be the perfect time to get a new pair of over the ear headphones.

I'm hearing a lot of praise for the Razer Electra and they seem to be perfect for music on the go and gaming at home. I really love the look of the headphones but can anyone vouch for their audio quality? People say they are better than some Beats, but I suspect it's just the fanboy in them speaking.

What do you guys think? Is it as good choice?


Ive had razer headsets before, really didnt like them, audio was horrendous compared to my previous headsets (siberia v2, turtlebeach x12's) Currently loving my sennheister 439's and v-moda lp's. I guess if I had to recommend one I'd recommend the 439's, I think there's a cable you cna get for them that has a mic, assuming you want one. But as im sure a lot of people on here will tell you, dont go for gaming branded headsets, I learnt that myself, my current headphones that cost the same amount as my gaming ones, sound way better. But, if you want the razers for looks, then go with them, they do rather admittedly look damn good.

ps: a lot of headphones sound "better than beats", since beats are basically just overpriced 40$ headphones 

Forgot to mention, the razer headset I had before was the tiamat, not the electra, different pair of cans, but considering they cost more and sounded rather bad, I really wouldnt recommend the electra's unless you cna try them before you buy them :)

Just today i moved on from a pair of electra's. Ive had them for a while and they are pretty reliable and flexible for multiple needs but now im using a pair of Audio-technica ATH-M50's, which are £100 on amazon and there is just no comparison. proper audio headphones are allways better than gaming ones because they just have the best sound quality for really anything. So i recommend going for high quality HEADPHONES and not a HEADSET and your ears will be much happier. Also if you need a mic just use a clip on modmic ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=modmic )
