Razer’s latest gaming headset, the Tiamat 7.1, has been delayed till January. The Tiamat 7.1 was expected to be out before Christmas but it seems that Razer still wants to tweak its new headset some more. The Tiamat was announced in August and is regarded by Razer as the first true 7.1 surround sound headset because it has a total of 10 drivers. Maybe cramming 10 drivers into a headset is harder than it looks.
Each earpiece holds five drivers; three dedicated to directional audio on the side, one dedicated to the center channel and a 42mm subwoofer driver. The Tiamat 7.1 has a mic and an in-line volume remote. The Tiamat 7.1 will cost R1,500 in the US so expect it to be priced in the R2,000 range when it gets to local shores.
