Nothing goes a miss , you can easily detect the subtle footsteps of the enemy quite effortlessly and the explosion resembles a boulder tumbling downwards from the mountain top.
The mic is very flexible and does not snap off/make weird “popping noises,” and you can easily retract the mic back into your headset if you don’t need to use it.
Razer also provides you with more options if you have a gaming PC/Windows computer (sadly not for Mac users), if you wish to have better sound quality for your headset. You simply have to go on to the website the paper inside the box provides and just type the code that is on the front side of the card to unlock those settings for your headset.
Full RGB configuration, good overall sound quality and the access to fine tune audio settings, along with the Surround sound toggle on the headset makes it very easier to change your settings quickly.
