Razer Carcharias for Xbox®/PC


How do I clean my Razer headset?
We cannot say with certainty what type of dirt and debris may be on your product, or how certain cleaning products may react with it, but we have had good luck cleaning Razer products using commonly available monitor cleaning wipes. To clean the body of your Razer headset please take a monitor wipe and use gentle wiping motions. Do not scrub the surface of your Razer headset.

When cleaning the earpads on your headset, take extra care to not get any liquids inside the earcup and onto the speaker itself, as this may damage your headset.

My Razer headset is out of warranty. Is there any way it can be repaired?
Razer products are designed to work well beyond when the warranty has expired. However, If you feel your headset is having issues we first suggest trying the headset on another computer/source to insure the issue is with the headset and not something within the computer system or source. If you have narrowed the issue to the headset itself there is not really a cost effective repair center that would be able to assist you. Razer does make available some basic external spare parts at http://www.razerzone.com/store/gaming-accessories , but we are unable to supply any internal parts or repair guides.
Do you have spare parts available?
We do not carry internal parts such as mouse sensors. However we do have certain spare parts available for purchase from the Razerstore: here
How long is my warranty?
Product warranty lengths differ depending on your Razer product. For example, mice have a two year limited warranty, while keyboards have a one year limited warranty. Please see full details for warranty lengths: here
Besides the color and microphone, what is the difference between the Razer Carcharias and the Razer Orca?
The Razer Carcharias features a 3m braided cable with an inline volume control  while the Razer Orca features a 1.2m braided fiber cable with a 2 meter braided extension cable. The frequency response on the Razer Orca has also been adjusted to meet the needs of both gaming and music audio.
I am trying to use the Razer Carcharias on my Mac and the microphone does not seem to be working. Why?
The Razer Carcharias is not officially supported on a Mac. This is because Mac supports  line level inputs from their Microphone input jacks. PCs generally have amplified Mic inputs and will work with the Razer Carcharias.
I can hear a slight buzzing or hissing sound through my Razer Carcharias Xbox 360 headset when not playing any audio. How can I fix this?
The buzzing sound you are hearing is caused by the USB connection within computers that have grounding issues and not due to the headset itself. Some USB ports will cause this, so we recommend switching the plug into a different USB port. If all of your USB ports exhibit the same issue, you may need to purchase an AC to USB converter. On laptops, the buzzing sound may be louder because of the way USB ports are connected internally.  Please note, if you turn up the volume of the Razer Carcharias Xbox 360 to higher levels and have no audio player, you may hear the same buzzing sound. Unless it is abnormally loud and still audible when Audio is played through the headset, this would be considered normal and you will notice this sound when using any high quality analog headset that is capable of reproducing these higher frequencies.
How does voice transmission over Xbox LIVE work?
To chat with others over Xbox LIVE, please connect the 2.5mm audio cable from the Razer Carcharias control pod to an Xbox controller to transmit voice signals.
My microphone is not working on my Razer headset. How can I fix this?
Please make sure that the required cable is plugged in securely to the microphone port of the computer.  Windows also has a recorder program to test the Microphone.  Go to Programs > Accessories > Sound
Is the Razer Carcharias headset noise canceling?
No, but you can increase or decrease the volume on the headset to adjust to your surroundings.
Where is the serial number for the headphones?
The serial number is located on the tag on the cord.  It can also be located at the bottom of the box. (Note: The number starting with RZ is the model number, NOT the serial number).
When I use fast-user switching to change between Windows accounts, my configuration of my Razer product is no longer active.
This is a general problem with fast-user switching. The configuration of the product is unique and set for the logged in user; once you switch users you will have to re-configure the product. There is no other workaround at this time.

My Razer product does not work correctly with a specific program or game. What should I do?
If you are experiencing issues with the Razer device in a particular application, test the device in another application to confirm if the issue is specific to that application. If the Razer device functions properly in another application then the program is likely the cause of the issue.  Please feel free to contact customer support to report the issue and see if there are any fixes or workarounds for the issue.

What are some examples of a “Proof of Purchase” to provide when initiating an RMA?
A valid proof of purchase is defined as a dated sales receipt from an authorized Razer Reseller. The receipt must show the product description and price. Invoice slips and e-mail order confirmations can be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Why does Razer require a proof of purchase?
Razer must verify that the product is within the specified warranty period and that it was purchased from an authorized reseller. Products purchased from unauthorized dealers are often used, counterfeit, re-boxed, defective or gray market goods. These units may also not be designed and packaged to work in your country and may not meet all legal and safety requirements.  Razer will not be able to honor a warranty on products purchased from an unauthorized dealer or that are out of the warranty period.  If you purchased product from an unauthorized reseller, all support and warranty issues should be directed to that reseller.
