Razer Man O'War Wireless Review

Here's what we think of Razer's 7.1 surround sound-touting Man O'War Wireless

Should I Buy The Razer Man O'War Wireless?
The Razer Man O’War is an impressive and rather intuitive wireless gaming headset that could easily take on gaming headsets double the price.


Price When Reviewed
  • $169.99
With wireless connectivity, virtual 7.1 surround sound support, seven-day battery life and multi-platform support, the Razer Man O'War Wireless appears to be one of the best gaming headsets on the market right now. But with stiff competition from other premium headsets like the Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 and Logitech's G933, does this wireless headset offer enough to tempt gamers?

We've spent a lot of time gaming with the Man O'War Wireless. Find out what we learnt in our Razer Man O'War Wireless review. 

Pricing And Availability
The Razer Man O'War Wireless isn't exactly one of the cheapest gaming headsets on the market with an RRP of £169.99/$179.99, but if you are on the market for a mid-to-high-end gaming headset, you can buy it from Razer, Amazon and other retailers.

Yes, it's pricy, but we think the range of features on offer makes it worth the money. Despite not having the sleek look of the similarly-priced Asos ROG Strix Fusion 500, the Man O'War Wireless makes up for it both in terms of audio quality and battery life.

Of course, you'll find that all for yourself if you carry on reading our review.

At just over half the price of the Astro A50, how does Razer’s wireless Man O’War gaming headset compare? While the Man O’War features 2.4GHz technology rather than 5GHz for wireless transmission, the 2.4GHz band provides a more reliable signal without compromising on response time.

It also features 7.1 virtual surround sound via the Razer Surround engine and 50mm Neodymium magnet drivers that provide impressive audio playback, which can be further tweaked via the Razer Synapse app for PC and Mac.

The first time you plug in the headphones, you’ll be taken through a virtual 7.1 surround sound setup that’ll tweak the audio output of the headphones based on your personal taste.

It doesn’t feature a base station like other wireless headsets, so how does it connect to your PC? It’s rather intuitive, actually. The USB receiver is built directly into the headset, and can be ejected with a push and be inserted into any PC, Mac or PS4 with plug’n’play support.

Although it can only be charged via a USB cable, the battery life is fairly impressive – it lasts around 14 hours per charge, or around seven days with an average of two hours of playback per day.

In terms of look, the Man O’War looks like your standard wireless gaming headset with huge, soft earcups for use over periods of extended use. There is one unique feature though – not one but two volume dials, one on each ear.

This is because the headphones feature two inputs; voice and game. If set up correctly, you can mix game audio and chat audio on the fly, adjusting the volume level on the left for chat, and right for game. It also features a retractable microphone with a unidirectional boom that allows it to be positioned however you desire, along with an algorithm that provides clearer voice reproduction.

There’s also a mute LED indicator on the end of the microphone so you don’t accidentally say something you shouldn’t while live streaming or Skyping!

Oh, and in typical Razer fashion, there’s Chroma support allowing gamers to change the colour of the Razer logo on the headset or sync it up with other Chroma-supported peripherals.

Verdict
Essentially, the Razer Man O’War is an impressive and rather intuitive wireless gaming headset that could easily take on gaming headsets double the price.

It ticks all the boxes, from wireless support to 7.1 surround sound support and great long-lasting battery life. It can also sync the LED-lit logo up with other Razer peripherals via the company's Chroma software for PC if that's your kind of thing.

10in Google Home Hub Release Date & Spec Rumours: Nest Hub Max Spotted

Google introduced its 7in Home Hub just as Amazon updated its Echo Show to a 10in design, but the big G could be working on a larger smart display. Here's what we know about the 10in Google Home Hub, aka Nest Hub Max.
We couldn't help feeling sorry for Google back in October 2018 when it finally unveiled its long anticipated smart display - just as Amazon took the wraps off its second-gen Echo Show, now with a larger 10in screen.

Microsoft No More Interested In Recommending Usage Of Internet Explorer

The low-price Model S is gone. If it must be a Tesla and you don’t need all-wheel drive or don’t have six figures, consider a Model 3.Though the Model 3 is all the rage, the larger 2019 Tesla Model S remains a stunning achievement and design trendsetter, albeit somewhat dated in the details.
The Tesla Model S wasn’t the first model from the California electric carmaker, but it’s the one that put Tesla on the trajectory as an innovator. It was unprecedented in many ways and has already earned a place in history books—the fastest volume-production plug-in car; the longest-range electric car; and the first production car built on a platform that provides over-the-air updates.
