    I'll always just use studio monitors over any type of gaming marketed speakers.

    You could get klipsch monitor speakers and buy a separate amp and still have money to spare lol. I got a pair of klipsch rp 160m for $190, 10 inch klipsch woofer for $90, and a Sony amp for $100. Lol

    Crazy they want $450 for a 2.1 sound system.

    I'm still using the Logitech Z-2300 2.1 setup. Bought it in 2009 and it still works just fine. I doubt any Razer product would last as long as these speakers have. I like the 3.5mm jack more than a USB connection. Keep it simple.

  5. Tconl

    I think I'll stick to my Edifier s880db 2.0 setup.

  6. Mike Weatherford

    Multimedia speakers are garbage. A pair of JBL LSR 305’s will embarrass these things for 250$

    I bought the original Nommos after lots of reviewers, including yourself, said they were awesome. They sounded like $25 no-name speakers.

    I've got the original razor Leviathan, and it's decent…

    I also own a huntsman pro keyboard and man o' war headset, But I would never want to buy another razor product until they make Synapse work. It's so damn buggy and half-baked; I wish I had gone for alternatives for these peripherals (the headset and keyboard).

    [I also spent the money on several of the razor mice with wireless charging pads w/o a battery (they used capacitors, IIRC); both went bad and were an expensive disappointment.]

    The sound bar is good, and the sub gives plenty of bass; the optical input is nice. I have no qualms about the original Leviathan. But if I needed to use Synapse for it, I would hate the product.

    Razor's software just pains me, regardless of the price or other features of the products.

    I used to consider myself a razor fan-boy, but I'll seek other brands for future peripherals.

    The razor has gone dull…

    I am absolutely not surprised you're seeing issues that have been happening since at least synapse 2.0 . Razer's products are always "fun" ish but quality control is terrible and god forbid you have an issue with synapse. I once went 4ish months with synapse 3.0 broken after an update and unable to be uninstalled via their uninstaller not to mention they have a terrible track record for software gimmicks that only work 20% of the time and quickly become outdated/unsupported

    Lmfao just get some HS50s for that price – how the hell can they call it an upgrade when they remove the tweeters? That’s a downgrade razer, there is no other way of looking at it, you took away connection options, and made the top end worse by not giving it a dedicated speaker. And the puck, that’s not new, Logitech have had those for yeeeears in a system that’s like $100-150. Holy hell, i don’t normally comment on these but aside from the wireless sub this is an objectively worse and more expensive razer version of the Steel series arena 7, why wouldn’t you just get the arena 7? They are $300 and you don’t have to deal with synapse 😂

    If you have cats, they love to scratch the inside of the speaker when they see it moving from sound then you have to throw them in the trash.

  13. I honestly ditched speakers for good and im my honest opinion: The Speaker concept is done, no matter how smart you make them it‘s just to „static“ if you know what i mean.

    My Setup is mainly mobile right now: iPad, iPhone, MacBook and a Windows Business Notebook. A static speaker doesn‘t fit in there sry.

    I sit right now in my kitchen, writing this comment on my iPad, i ask you: How should that speakers (and speaker in general) fit in there? Yeah you can plug that speakers in here, throw around the cables and place them on my breakfast-bar, but the question is: What happens when you done watching YouTube or Movies? I can tell you what happens: They stay there, collecting dust and take up space. And in the worse case someone of the housemates trips over the wire. Static Speakers are for me so outdated, most of the time i have headphones in my ears like the AirPods when i wanna have good audio. But sometimes when i don‘t want stuff in my ears, hey, the integrated speakers are fine.

    Even as an apple customer i don‘t see the need to buy the …what are there speakers called again… HomePods, same reason like this speakers. Yeah the deliver good sound, i expect that for that price, that‘s is not a real feature for me. Yeah you can use them as a HomeKit Hub, but i have my Apple TV flying around under my desk for that purpose along with my raspberry pi with Homebridge, so also no reason to buy them in that regard.

    And to be honest: I still wonder, how that product category does still exist. Since Corona, more and more people when into HomeOffice and you can‘t „party hard“ in the next room when the mate has a video meeting where he needs to understand what‘s going on or when you need to call people over VoIP. So, how are speakers still a thing?!

    Anti clockwise? Lol counterclockwise?

  15. xilllllix

    i'd rather buy a gpu than a speaker for that price

  16. xuxon24

    If you really want to spend 500 bucks in a pair of speakers just go for a power speaker set. They will sound so much better if you eventually get tired of using them and want to only use headphones you have a good pair that can be put elsewhere and repreduce music in a much better way.

  17. DON044 _

    Since you've tried the Nommos Pros and V2 how would you compare them just off a sound quality perspective?

  18. Earl

    If only there was a decent 2.1 speaker system for PC users who also value audio quality..

  19. Meatsweats

    soundbar and wireless sub would be great. RCA plugs or at least an AUX port so I can still use my DAC and turn the speakers on/off if I want to listen to them.

    Earning money is an action. Keeping money is behavior, but "Growing money is wisdom" I heard that from someone ☺

    You really shouldn't be spending your money on any of these mainstream speaker systems from the likes of Razer, Corsair, Logitech. If you want some good quality audio for gaming, music listening, movie watching, buy some bookshelf speakers (JBL, KEF, Elac) paired with a decent amp and your ears will thank you for it. Not to mention it won't fail on you like Razer here would.

  22. mgb2012

    i'll keep my 20 yrs old Logitech Z-5500

  23. Nick Catelli

    When you can get four whole sets of Klipsch Promedia 2.1s for the same price, you'd be nuts to get these instead…

  24. megasp

    it's stupid not to have an aux and headphone ports on a thing of this price. Gave it a pass as soon as i learned this. I don't want use bluetooth for my switch , not sure it it even works, just because the speakers are wired to my PC.

  25. Harmon kardon sound sticks absolutely stomp these into the ground for quality and no RGB crap.. 🥳

  26. Uğur

    It would be awesome if you have showed frequency response graph. I'm not saying go buy Klippel NFS for $100k and measure it in a anechoic chamber but measuring it with $80 MiniDSP Umik-1 in your room would give us an idea how they're sounding.

  27. Jacob Stanley

    I run a pair of Focal Alpha 65 evo's in a midfield set up. Soundstage is amazing. When listening to music, You get a real in the booth feel, also for gaming. It's wide enough to fool you into thinking the sound is surround(Focal are known for their vary wide soundstages). They go plenty deep, and If I wanted deeper. I could add the Alpha sub 1. Honestly studio monitors are unsung value kings when it comes to HiFi.
