Closer Look: Carcharias
Razer's Carcharias is a wired analog headset that sells for $79.99 (Newegg). Designed to fill many roles, including gaming, Carcharias offers a comfortable fit, good audio quality, and an effective noise-canceling microphone.
The headband of the Carcharias is made from matte black plastic, and Razer included a heavy, shaped pad for comfort. The headband expands a full two inches, and is generously proportioned to begin with. This adds to the comfort of the headset by allowing you to get a perfect fit.
Razer provides an in-line volume control as well as microphone on/off functionality. The volume control does work independently of your computer audio, so set one and leave it to avoid confusion. The noise-filtering microphone works well, and has a flexible midsection to bend the microphone to whatever position you like.
Very soft earpads that measure 3 ¾ inches wide from outside edge to outside edge, and 2 ¼ inches wide from inside edge to inside edge, feature a combed cotton cover for added comfort. The idea behind these circle shaped earpads is to provide maximum comfort for the user, to allow you to wear your headset longer without the common irritation they provide.
