The earmuffs are covered with protein leather and the interior is filled with a soft sponge. The large size ear cups and wide earpads fully-wrapped player’s ears, and evenly distributes the wearing pressure around the auricle, reducing the pressure and congestion of the auricle cartilage after long-term wearing.

The earpads can be disassembled easily for maintenance and replacement.

This microphone is not an analog microphone that traditional gaming headsets used, it’s a digital microphone with an optimized algorithm, which also effectively ensures the clarity and naturalness of voice.


Razer Synapse allows players to set ManO’War 7.1 headsets according to personal needs. Even if you replace computers or reinstall the system, as long as you re-install Razer Synapse and log in, you will use the previous settings, which is very convenient for players who often change the use environment.


Wearing Experience

Razer ManO’War 7.1 wired gaming headset has wide earpads that can wrap the entire ear, effectively reducing environmental noise, and not putting too much pressure on the auricle cartilage. Overall, in terms of wearing experience, Razer ManO’War 7.1 wired headset performs very well.

It is worth mentioning that the weight of the wired version is reduced compared to the wireless version, which is about 332g, 43g lighter.

Audio Experience

In general, this headset suitable for vocal, rock, and DJ music, but it is relatively inferior to the performance of the grand symphony. It may be due to the virtual 7.1 channel (with interpolation algorithm), the sound field created by the analog channels is too wide. So when listening to music, you will find there are gaps between it and Hi-Fi headphones.

Gaming Experience

As a gaming headset, accurate sound localization is the factor that players need to consider first. I played FPS games which highly require sound localization: CS GO and Overwatch. The sound localization of the ManO’War 7.1 wired headset in the 2 games is very accurate, and the sense of direction and distance of the sound is clear. With the excellent resolution, footsteps and gunshots are not confused. Excellent low-frequency elasticity makes the atmosphere of the explosion sound in the ear feel enough, but not too fast to cause headbangs.

Pros and Cons


  • Suitable for Long-term Wear
  • Full Platform Compatibility
  • Good Sound Insulation
  • 7.1 Virtual Surround
  • Accurate Sound Localization


  • Relatively High Price
  • Sound Card Not Compatible With Others

In Summary

ManO’War 7.1 wired headset is Razer’s best comprehensive headset at present! Except the price is a little expensive, the design, workmanship, wearing experience, and gaming experience are excellent. If you have a sufficient budget, it is highly recommended to buy.
