    The cans look cool, but I don't know about all that green.. lol.. if I grabbed a pair, I'd have to paint it before even wearing for the first time.

    Perfection is, as always, relative...
    Most costumers, with the exception of audio technicians, won't know the difference or just won't care as much about it as they will do about the looks...
    Anyway, these would go great with UV painted hair...green, preferably...

    Why do I get the feeling he came up with these in an airplane... while he was looking at the guy with the earmuffs on the runway.

    I would be one of those ppl who loves that color green, who go's to lan party's anymore that's so 2004 :laugh:
    I just hate headphones that use 3.5mm jacks because the damn wires are too thin always break or come of the contacts somewhere and are impossible to fix.
    Hence the reason ive had my platronics usb headset for like 4 years now without issue.

    Probably the "enhanced audio" means "loudness-oriented".

    Hm.. this headphones reminds me AKG a lot, just coincidence? Then it would be probably much better than it looks (I dont say I dont like green, just this is tad too much). Camo would be better.

    No microphone attachment = disqualified as gaming headphones.

    i think you need to learn the definition of 'headphones' vs 'headset'

    You might also look up "obsolete definition".

    Wait, a 2M extension cable magically turns it into a gaming headset?


    Meh anyway. It's Razer, and therefore it's overpriced junk. These are most likely $30 headphones with a fancy paint job, and that magical 2M cable that makes them more gaming oriented somehow.
