saFety and


In order to achieve maximum safety

while using your Razer Megalodon, we

suggest that you adopt the following


1. Should you have trouble operating

the headset properly and

troubleshooting does not work,

unplug the device and call the Razer

hotline or go to for support.

Do not attempt to service or fix the

device yourself at any time.

2. Do not take the headset apart

(doing so will also void your

warranty) and do not attempt to

service it yourself or operate it

under abnormal current loads.

3. Keep your headset away from

liquid, humidity or moisture.

Operate your headset only within the

specified temperature range of 0˚C

(32˚F) to 40˚C (104˚F). Should you

operate it in a temperature that is

beyond this range, unplug and

switch off the device in order to let

the temperature stabilize within the

optimal temperature range.

4. The Razer Megalodon isolates

external ambient sounds even at low

volumes, resulting in lowered

awareness of your external

surroundings. Please remove the

Razer Megalodon when engaging in

any activities that requires active

awareness of your surroundings.

5. Excessively loud listening volumes

damage your hearing over extended

periods of time. The legislation of

certain countries allows a maximum

permissible sound pressure level of

85 dB to affect your hearing for the

duration of a working day. Therefore,

please reduce your volume level to a

comfortable level for longer usage

period. Take good care of your



There is little maintenance required

to keep the Razer Megalodon in

optimum condition. Once a month,

we recommend that you unplug the

headset from the USB port and clean

it with a soft cloth or cotton swab.

Use a little warm water but avoid

soap or harsh cleaning agents.

Razer Maelstrom Audio Engine

The Razer Maelstrom Audio Engine is activated by default. However, you can toggle between

the 2.0 stereo sound and the 7.1 surround sound by clicking the Maelstrom button.

Setting the Razer Megalodon to the 2.0

(Music) setting is ideal for music and

games that do not support surround

sound. When the 7.1 (Gaming) setting is

on, surround sound is virtualized and

allows you to more clearly identify the

position of sounds in games and other

surround sound enabled media.

using your razer megalodon control pod

The Razer Megalodon is a 7.1 virtualized surround sound gaming headset designed

specifically to incorporate the Razer Maelstrom Audio Engine, to make it the definitive

gaming headset for gamers today. The Razer Maelstrom provides true-to-life 7.1

Surround Sound, utilizing next generation HRTF technologies and a superb DSP with

unheard of processing power, which results in enhanced processing – a boon for

demanding games today.

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3





Finetuning Razer Maelstrom Audio Engine

In order to give you more control on the 7.1 surround sound, the Razer Megalodon

control pod allows you to adjust the master volume, center volume, front volume, side

volume, back volume and the bass level. By clicking the Channel Selector, you can switch

between the different channels and adjust the volume manually using the control wheel.

Individually setting each channel to your own preference will allow you to emphasize

sounds coming from a certain direction and more immediately identify the position of

in-game sound cues and threats that you may not be able to see.

Example: Adjusting the Front L/R volume.

1. Click on the Channel Selector until only the Front L/R speaker indicators are lit.

2. Tune the volume of the Front L/R speakers by adjusting the control wheel. In-game

sounds that come from the front of your avatar should now be louder and easier to


3. Once you are satisfied with the volume, allow the Control Pod to revert back to the

Master Volume setting in 5 seconds. Otherwise, you can also manually change back

to the Master Volume setting by clicking on the Channel Selector until all speaker

indicators are lit.

Note: Bass from the Front L/R speakers is channeled to the virtual bass speaker [BASS]. Therefore, you can also control

the bass level in the 2.0 setting.

Microphone Control

In addition to the Razer Maelstrom Audio Engine, you can also adjust the microphone

using the Control Pod.


Click on the MIC MUTE button to mute the mic.


1. Click on the MIC SENS button. The MIC SENS indicator will be lit.

2. Turn the control wheel to adjust the microphone sensitivity.

3. While the MIC SENS indicator light is on, you will be able to hear yourself

speaking into the microphone. Listen for any background noise. By increasing

the MIC SENS, you can adjust the microphone’s sensitivity so it cuts out

background noises and only picks up your voice.

4. Once you are satisfied with the sensitivity, click on the Channel Selector to

return back to the previous control. Otherwise, the control pod will revert back

to the previous control in 5 seconds.


1. Click on the MIC LEVEL button. The MIC LEVEL indicator will be lit.

2. Turn the control wheel to adjust the volume of the microphone.

3. While the MIC LEVEL indicator light is on, you will be able to hear yourself

speaking into the microphone. This is the volume at which your teammates or

enemies will hear you speak at. Adjusting the MIC LEVEL higher will amplify

the volume of your voice and adjusting the MIC LEVEL lower will lower the

volume of your voice.

4. Once you are satisfied with the volume level, click on the Channel Selector to

return back to the previous control. Otherwise, the control pod will revert back

to the previous control in 5 seconds.



To reset the Razer Megalodon to factory default settings, press and hold the

Channel Selector for 10 seconds while the Razer Megalodon is connected to a

computer that is powered on.
