Razer ManO’War Review – Powerful but Bulky



Even though there are gaming headsets that are opting for the sleeker finish, the Razer ManO’War deviates from that thought. This is one big and powerful headset, and it even has the type of features that you would want for an audio-listening device built for gaming. It has programmable colored lighting and can deliver excellent sound, which does justify the heft in its price tag. However, the company is already known for making high-end gaming peripherals, so the price point is not that surprising. However, it does feel a bit limited and the size may let some people look for other options on the market as this particular unit might weigh down on their heads, especially when going for those long videogame sessions.

The Razer ManO'War Delivers the Power Compared to many other gaming headsets on the market, the Razer ManO'War will easily dwarf those, especially that of the Logitech G933. It has large, circular earcups that are connected to a wide plastic headband. To give comfort, the earpads are covered in a comfortable leatherette that are plush and large enough to be worn over the ears. It does a pretty good job at isolating even the largest ears. However, because of its secure fit, it can trap heat within, thus wearing it for extended periods of time and you will notice your ears to get warm pretty soon. Despite the headset being quite big, the headband contains a similar leatherette pad that can be found on the earcups that does let the headset evenly distribute its weight when you're wearing it. However, it still feels a bit heavier than most, and you will feel that weight long enough when playing until the wee hours into the early morning. As for its audio performance, the ManO'War is a headphone that is worthy to bring the name of the company. If you're playing first-person shooters, then you will hear those explosions quite well as they blast through your skull with great intensity. However, even though the headphone is advertised to deliver 7.1-channel surround sound, it doesn't quite hold up to that promise. The Razer ManO'War is a gaming headset in all of its entirety. Hence, you cannot use it with your mobile device, not that it can deliver great music performance anyway. You will find a hint of distortion when listening to tracks at higher music volumes. Hence, use this only for gaming and nothing else, that is if you do not mind its weight.
