Battlefield 4™ Razer BlackShark - Stereo Headset for Gaming

FEATURES
Based on military helicopter headset designs
The design of the Razer BlackShark was inspired by aviator headsets worn by attack helicopter pilots. They provide the same level of comfort needed to endure extended mission times and superior sound isolation for absolute command-clarity in the most frenzied situations.
Superior sound isolation for distraction-free gaming and music
With the circumaural design and leatherette sealant of the headset’s ear cups, block out all unwanted, ambient noise and only hear the awesome, intense audio of your games and music.
 
Gaming on the go
The Razer BlackShark’s detachable boom microphone makes this a highly versatile headset, at home both at a gaming setup and out on the streets for music playback. Go from immersive gaming audio and smack-talking foes at your desktop to listening to your music out and about in seconds. The combined audio/mic cable works with all portable audio/mobile/computing devices including the iPod, iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, Android phones, Razer Blade, Macbook Pro, or today’s newer Ultrabooks.

What is Surround Sound?


Surround Sound describes the method of channelling sound that envelops the user in a 360 degree arc, positioning sound sources accurately in relation to the user. This is especially useful in multiplayer first person shooters where proper sound placement can help you identify friends, foes and situations within the environment. Audio devices produce two types of surround sound: Discrete or virtual.



Discrete


Using multiple speakers in a system or multiple audio drivers in each ear cup of the headset, positioned at different angles, discrete surround sound lets gamers hear audio in realistic 3-dimensions as they would in real life.

Discrete surround sound makes for immersive gameplay as it accurately represents how your character perceives the audio of the game world.

See Razer Tiamat 7.1

Virtual


Virtual surround sound can be found primarily in headphones that use only two drivers and complex audio processing algorithms to simulate the effect of having multiple audio drivers.

These headsets utilize internal or external amps and software engines to divide surround sound audio into distinct, separate segments, effectively reproducing a surround sound spectrum with just 2 drivers.
