Razer fans that were hoping to get their hands on the new Razer Tiamat 7.1 headset before the holiday season. Are going to be a little disappointed to hear that Razer has now pushed back the launch into January 2012.
The Razer Tiamat 7.1 headset is a unique piece of gaming kit and is equipped with 10 discrete drivers, 5 in each circumaural ear cup to give you true pinpoint positional surround sound.
The 10 drivers represent the 7 surround sound channels plus subwoofer; 2 for center, 1 each for the left and right, surround sound left and right, surround back left and right, and 2 for the subwoofer. All drivers work in unison to produce a true surround sound experience.
“We announced the Razer Tiamat back in August and promised that it would be ready to ship in Q4 this year. Plenty of customers emailed and wrote in through our community channels inquiring if it would be ready by Christmas. The bad news is – it won’t be ready by Christmas. We estimate that the Razer Tiamat will only be available around the end of January 2012.
Rest assured this product is coming out soon, but as we get ready to ship, we are also putting final touches to perfect this headset. We want to be sure that what you get is going to blow your ears away, no holds barred, and unfortunately like all Razer products, it’s ready when it’s ready.
We still apologize for the delay, especially for not making sure this product was ready to sit under Christmas trees everywhere.
But we’d like to make it right:
For all the customers who add their names to the Notify Me list at the minisite www.razerzone.com/tiamat, we’ll provide you with a coupon code for a FREE Razer T-shirt and Razer flask – worth about US$40 – when the Razer Tiamat is available, AND – we’ll ship it to you for free.”
