    The Razer Chimaera Professional Gaming Headset for Xbox 360 is designed to provide sharp sound quality that

optimizes the gaming experience with crisp, roaring sound from a 5.1 Channel Virtual Surround Sound system.

direct, private communication channel for in-game team conversations. The circumaural design of the headset

allows for optimum noise isolation for long-hours of comfortable gameplay without any outside interruptions.
