Is the chat volume on the Chimaera too low or could it be that my headset it defected? The chat volume will only increase with the overall volume, but it's usually drowned by the game audio. Anyone else have issues with this?
Mine seems to be the same way. I got the 5.1's a while ago, the day they first were publically available on Razer's site, and they seemed fine then. I didn't use them for a few weeks and recently over the past several days I've noticed this issue more
and more. However, there has been an xbox update so I wonder if there was anything with that that is messing with the audio. Small chance, but maybe.
I've contacted Razer regarding the issue, they told me to hold mode button for 5 seconds until you hear a beep. (2 beeps is for chat audio, 1 beep for mic) Didn't fix the issue. Voice sound still drowned by game audio. I emailed them back, but haven't received
a response for about a week now...
I also ordered the Chimaera 5.1 the same day they became available om Razer´s site and I received them in the first batch. I´ve also noticed the low chat volume and contacted Razer about it. I got the same answer as Agent Goomba. This (2 beeps is for chat
audio, 1 beep for mic) is not very good described in the manual so I tried to fiddle with it and now the chat volume is definitely loud enough for me.
Make sure that you have the 2.5 mm cord connected between the headset and the controller, otherwise fiddling with the chat volume won´t do anything for you. If you still think the chat volume is too low, lower the master volume in the game you are playing,
that will make the chat sound stand out louder relative to the game volume.
Another thing I have noticed is that while playing Black Ops, the sound in the headset is a bit "clonky" if you know what I mean (especially when reloading, it sounds like you are in a can). I have the headset base station set to surround sound and the in
game audio setting is set to "Surround headphones". If I switch off the surround sound on the Chimaera base station, I loose the 5.1 audio (I only get stereo sound) but the "clonky" sound in the game disapears. Does anyone experience the same thing? Have anyone
tried to set the game to "Theatre" instead of "Surround headphones"?
hmm it is connected of course.. I do have voice chat settings set to hear only through the headset since it sounds "cleaner" than having it played through the tv which is what the setting adjustments are for I believe. Could it be that 2.5 cable then? I
will try a different one and see if I notice a difference.
I've recently bought a pair, after not wanting to stump up for Astro's and these getting good reviews, and whilst they are comfortable and sound good the voice volume is forcing me to think about selling these on (as I'm outside of returns and it's not a
fault) and either returning to some TB X41's or looking again at the Astro's....
